The NFL's Covid Chaos
"We'll so lindsay this week. We saw something that we haven't seen since nineteen forty eight. An nfl game being played on a wednesday. Can you just walk us through how this happened. And how things unfolded for the ravens. In the last two weeks this game was originally scheduled to be played on thanksgiving night. It was the prime time game. Really the marquee. Matchup of thanksgiving between the undefeated pittsburgh steelers and the baltimore ravens. So right after the ravens previous game. They received multiple positive tests from players guys. Who'd played in the game before the ravens. a porn. Another outbreak coronavirus positive tests among both players and staff member. They go through the contact tracing process they try to figure out who all of the high risk close contacts are and they realized that a lot of guys across the roster and across the coaching staff. We're going to end up being not just high risk close contacts but we're probably going to end up test positive. Let's start the baltimore ravens positive tests for the organization. It's not just players. There were reportedly four positives today but only one player placed on the covid nineteen reserve list. That's my backer. What we saw was that four about nine straight days. There was at least one new positive test within the baltimore ravens organization. And that's really why this game got moved because it was day after day after day of new positive tests and then ultimately the game was moved to three forty pm wednesday afternoon. Which was the most bizarre kickoff time that any of us can remember and it was of course. It was moved to wednesday afternoon because nbc needed to air the christmas tree lighting ceremony. Oh you know it feels like nothing can stop the juggernaut. That is the nfl except christmas. The nfl is not joining the war on christmas. I mean they've had enough. Things been bobbing and weaving about this year. Prior to the game on wednesday ravens players reportedly told league officials that they were concerned about being unprepared physically for a major rivalry game. That's noted for its physicality in the past and some players also expressed concerns about getting on a plane when they were still returning positive tests. How did the nfl respond to those concerns by players about their safety. Well there are two separate issues and the nfl has really tried to separate when they talk about health and safety this year when they're talking about cova health and safety and what they've learned about the virus and every positive test they're doing genomic tracing on the samples to try to figure out exactly where it's coming from exactly what strain of the virus. They're getting down into all of the very gritty details to figure out so they were pretty sure that nobody was going to be getting on that plane. That had a new active case. That wasn't somebody who was already previously exposed or somebody. They expected that was part of this outbreak. The other questions though about preparedness and the safety of playing basically without practicing for ten days. I mean they were able to get on the field for one walk through and then they kind of had one other practice. But that's a realistic question. And that's something that the nfl hasn't had a really good answer for other. Then you're just going to do it. And i totally understand why ravens players were concerned about it
Fresh update on "pittsburgh steelers" discussed on Sports Talk Saturday with Sal Capaccio
"Little bit because the one on one situations that's what it is for me when you it seems like you know, both sides just a tremendous player in TJ. What is going on? Is that type of player right where he can really wreak havoc. Yeah. Next week this week. This 40 Niners defense. It's actually a lot like the bills defense. I think the 40 Niners and bills defensive very similar, which is They're They're more about the sun than the party, especially with all the injuries they've had. They really got their crops very well coached very well. Yeah, he's put together a really solid defense. Despite all the injuries they've had Um, they have. They were nice group that can still get a lot of things done. But it's not like they have these all pro players that you're staring over there and going. Oh, my God, that guy and that guy and you know they've had so many injuries and they had, you know, two forced Buckner is gone, and now he's an Indian. Obviously, he's acted this week. Joey Boat Nick Post is gone. We know that they've had injuries of their secondary. Um, but this is a group. Still, they can really Be solid in all areas and When you go against them to me. It reminded Zamora about hate making sure everything's kind of covered here when you go against a team like the Pittsburgh Steelers next week. Now, obviously don't Bud Dupree. That's a very big loss for them. We know that and that's we're going to see how that impacts TJ. What? By the way on the other side, I think I think having Bud Dupree has really helped EJ. What a lot obviously, but we'll see. Because a guy like T J. What? He could line up all the sudden it's a one on one. You could beat one on one by a guy like that he's getting to the quarterback. He's forcing a fumble. He's doing things like that. That's not the type of defense it playing this week. And that's not a disrespected them at all. This is the type of defense that every single one of those guys they can. They can get rolling a little bit. But you don't have that one bell cow guy that you have to also think about and take care of, and they're not quite as aggressive as This where Pittsburgh is super aggressive. They just get after you. You could make a few big place you're there because they're gonna make big plays on defense against you. The Niners. They're more of a We're gonna bend. Don't break we're gonna make you work for everything you get. And that's what I think This game is gonna be in for for the bills. All right, So I appreciate you, my friend.

Yeah, well, thank you for that kind introduction and I'm grateful to be with you guys today and look forward to the conversation. That's great. We were so happy to have you and you know, as I was listening to it, I was thinking gosh and and Jeremy in your spare time Studio. Well, that's you haven't let any grass grow, that's for sure. And where's your proud of you? Being a Colorado zone. Thank you. You know, I've I've I'm proud to be a Colorado native. It is something that I Really do where, with a great deal of honor and pride, because I think this is just the most incredible state and I have felt such, you know, love and appreciation and support throughout my communities even as a high school player and then into college with the University of Colorado and then you know into the Olympics just felt an overwhelming amount of support from from the state of Colorado, So I'm very grateful to be a native. I think in turn, it is nice that I know the state of Colorado has loved you to death but for you to turn around and keep it here and keep Colorado in the forefront. I think that's you know, is the Colorado guy I think I think that's a terrific thing. Yeah, well, it's important to me and you know that. You know that quote that people say you don't realize how much you love a place until you leave my experience that when I was drafted by the Eagles and living in Philadelphia and living in Pittsburgh and through some of my other endeavors, it brought me to other cities and you know nothing against those cities at all. But it's hard. T o be her match. You know, Boulder, Colorado. Where where I live, and some, you know, I just love it here. Pretty exciting. So, so I have a question for you Tear me. How did your experiences all those experiences in the Olympics and and Growing up and everything else. How did that bring you to where you are today? Well, I mean, the journey taught me ah lot about life and and I think that's probably one of the best things about Athletics and you know it all different levels in individual sports and team sports. I think you learned so much. There's a lot of metaphors for life. I mean, you know when you play team sports or an individual sport like skiing, you know you spend days where you're you're on top, and you spend days where you fall short of the goal, and I think life is kind of true to that extent. Where you know no matter how successful one is, we always stumble. We always fall down. We always fall short. Michael Jordan was cut twice and in high school, you know, one of the best basketball players of all time, guys like while Disney was even fired from his first job for lack of imagination before starting Disney and I think it really prepared before you know the life that I lived. Now we're you know, set big goals set big dreams Go after him and you look if if it doesn't work out for one way or another, that's okay. Let's learn from it. Let's keep moving. And I think I've gotten that. You know mentality from from my days as an athlete and Jeremy with that mentality, it seems woven into that that you've always had a desire to give back to others where that come from. Came from my mom and, you know, I grew up in Loveland, Colorado, and my dad and I shared such a wonderful relationship in sports, and he helped teach me how to win. He really did. And you know, um, you know, not not win it all costs but with it almost every cost, And so he kind of ingrained that in the end, and my mom was really less focused on what color the medal was, or if there was a metal And she was really focused as a parent and as a mother on teaching my brother sister and I That it's important how you treat people it's important to give back. It's important to realize that you know, not everybody has the opportunities that that we were given from a young age born into an opportunity, rich environment, you know, we're really grateful for that. And so she she really has been the person who has taught me that that's you know, important to the fabric of human beings of all of us just to do even little things that try to give back and help others. That's incredible. And I'm sure your mother will enjoy hearing you say that. Also, It's always good for a parent to know that the kids recognize what happened and I appreciate it and tell us about your grandmother. I understand she had a major impact in your life Also. Smile. And thanks for the question, Donna Wheeler was was my maternal grandmother lived with us for the 1st 19 years of my life. She lived downstairs. I did not have to go far to see my grandmother spent time with her growing up, which was an amazing gift. And after school, I would head downstairs and you know, we would, you know, bake cookies and watch soap operas. Whatever she was into, I was into And she just She was such an amazing force in this this life Not well, No, not famous. Never, You know, achieved things that to be put into a trophy case. But that was never important to her. Um, what was important that her was to wake up each and every day and be grateful to be here and thankful. You know, no matter what. Challenge of the day was and she encountered all kinds of health challenges and throughout her life, she never complained, never ever said, You know what was May and she just always had this incredible outlook in life, And she's a big reason big reason why You know, I wanted to start wish of a lifetime and embark on a journey TOC Grant wishes to tow. Her generation generally is kind of known each other throughout it. Various media media events and things like that. But I am seed your very first wish of a lifetime, You know, dinner gala dinner.

In fact, the one big game the game of the week between ranked teams. Would you believe Coastal Carolina? Host team. See why you who needs schedule makers always laugh.

We've ranked Alabama versus Oregon or Texas and Ohio State, Notre Dame. And whoever and I laugh because BYU was like. Oh, can we get our equipment truck across country from Provo over the South Carolina? We do that. We get that going like tomorrow. Okay? Yeah, we'll play the game liberties out too many covert cases. Let's get the game in. You know what ingenuity versatility. All these programs showing maybe a flight directors don't need to make all that big money. We could just schedule week of maybe this is the future. You're seeing it in college basketball, by the way teams they're just throwing their schedule away and let's figure it out, unfortunately, was gonna be a great game. Today. If you're just joining us breaking news this happened about 20 minutes ago. No Gonzaga. Baylor. Though, that that game is off because of covert. Unfortunately, guess they've rescheduled but that was going to be one of the signature. Got a conference matchups of the season. That one is postponed until further notice. So obviously we knew this was gonna be a trying year We're trying to get through. It is best weekend. The NFL They said, Hey, we don't care about competitive balance. We're gonna find a way. To get Teams on the field. We don't care with quarterbacks are we don't care for down to the third string, or maybe even in Denver's case. What was it a scout team wide receiver? The name of the game getting through the season and all these sports are doing the best. They possibly can 855 to 1 to four CBS 4 to 27 as we come to you live from the rocket mortgage studios when you want the ability to adjust your loan options in real time. Rocky Can Anthony Lima in for Ken Carmen? Today? I want to hear from fans right now. 855 to 1 to four. CBS 4 to 27 football fans, NFL fans. Look, I'm in Cleveland, so I hear about it all week. On Friday, we We talked about it. Browns Titans. And are the Browns and 83 getting disrespect And I know this is a common trope around the NFL. That really exports in general, you have heard Joe Buck talked about it before. He says he's gotten death threats from basically every city. In football and in baseball. Every city thinks that Joe Buck hates them. And that's just the reality of the business. You watch a game. If your team's losing or ultimately loses, you feel like the announcers are cheering against your team. That is a normal thing. Just be doing this radio show. Whether it's local everybody. Cleveland thinks I hate the Cleveland teams. And I'm in Cleveland. Hey, Carmen. He's the homer. So you know they love him. That's why wins all the awards. We get it all the time. Why do you hate our team? I'd be getting Clemson e mails today. Saying, I'm disrespecting Clemson. It's one of the great parts. I really do believe that's one of the great parts of sports is that we do treat it like politics. We do get invested all the way. We do think everybody's rooting against us. And I'm wondering Brown's rating. Three. Are they the most disrespected team in the NFL? I know much Cleveland fans think they are. You're the Browns have a chance to earn that respect with a win over Tennessee. Tomorrow, and there's six point dogs in that game. So I truly am wondering Who is the most disrespected team in the NFL. But you make a case. For the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo Bills eight and three. Yet. I don't hear anybody taking the Buffalo bills all that seriously. I got another surprise team for you. This was a great one because I saw the MIM come out this week. For the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. And it basically went through every team. I got it here. Here's the Steelers cakewalk schedule, according to NFL means New York beat Daniel Jones. Rocco's barely beat the Broncos. Texas beat Bill O'Brien. Eagles be Carson Wentz Brown speed the overrated browns. They even got a slam it on the ground. Tennessee bail by rest First Titans The Baltimore Ravens barely beat the Ravens. The Cowboys barely be three and a Cowboys. Cincinnati beat the two and Bangles Jacksonville Beach, Jake Luton. The Ravens barely Ravens practice squad plus third string quarterback 11 now I think you could make the case. The Steelers are the most I don't know if I say underrated team, but Most disrespected. I think you could do so I want to know. NFL fans around the country 855 to 1 to four, CBS. Who do you think right now? Make a case. If you think your team is the most disrespected. I mean, how about the Titans? Titans Air eight and three. They have a great formula their quarterback. Again has mastered their system. Ryan Tannehill what a comeback story left for dead few years ago, People thought he was a first round bust when he was with Adam Gays in the Miami Dolphins, and here he is. Last year, leading the NFL quarterback rating This year. He's over 100 again. 24 touchdowns, four interceptions. Does anybody give Brian Tennille credit? I feel like he doesn't get a ton of credit. And they just crushed. The Indianapolis Colts. They've got some nice winds on their schedule. Go to the NFC. Are the Packers getting their credit? No, it doesn't seem like it doesn't seem a lot of people are saying the Packers are going to the Super Bowl. But who's definitively better than them? In the NFC. Is it the Saints, who are nine into and have to figure out when Drew Brees is going to come back? And what that offense is going to look like? Obviously you like their coach. But you're buying Taysom Hill. In the meantime, What about the Seahawks at eight and three, a defense that is far removed from the Legion off boom done, seem like their defense is all that great, but they've got Russell Wilson. So.

"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games <hes>. It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good <hes>. I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee. Titans having to get a drive late in the game even though been was a reception late like they were able to the ball greg band. There's gonna prevail on the road. The pittsburgh steelers had the hold on dearly man. Hold on they do for the baltimore. Ravens they score in the second half and they were able to do that then back pop. For the end zone touchdown pittsburgh and all the out cut to the chase. Claypool man play. It just seems that all the critical point of the season it's offense has been able to produce down to like. I said the dallas cowboy game last week obviously exploiting a very bad bengals defense and well in a team like the cat city chiefs right and i say okay. One had the baby stopped him have to limit big play. The pittsburgh steelers can do that with rush. Plays on the back end right. Play play man when they need to stop the big click now. Let's go offensively the only time we've ever seen patrick mahomes lose. He was in the playoffs. He was standing across from another super bowl. Winning quarterback that was tom brady and rothlisburger. Isn't tom brady but he can do. Some of those things in important moments. And we've seen of do those. And so i think this team can most certainly went into as you mentioned chase claypool his nickname if catching on with you but maple tron. He comes from canada. He's this guy. I didn't know anything about. I wonder if you did because he has seven touchdowns in his first nine games as a pro. What has he brought to this offense. I mean you look at what this league is turning into. Because of the lack of physicality it's a it's a size speed league right like it's starting to they used to be. It didn't matter what happened in the shorts olympics at the combine like if a fast it didn't necessarily mean it was going to translate do can do certain things there did me but it's starting to mean that at the wide receiver position because of the rules. Like if you could flat out run you're gonna probably get open because they can't hold you. You pass five yards. They can't hit you across the middle play putin critic who has great hands he tracks the ball. Well he has a big body and so when you have all those things just translate we've seen chase claypool. You know kind of come out of nowhere. They just kinda have a knack for finding people that sit what they want to do and utilizing them in a way. That truly helps the team chase. Claypool is just another example of that
Can the Pittsburgh Steelers Go Undefeated?
"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee.

"In the past the steelers did not play in a game against a deep plus opponent just a few weeks ago. The steelers almost lost to a to win dallas team. So as much as i would say they wouldn't play down. They did but they had just come off an emotional win against a tough baltimore team and a lot of people say the best teams are the teams that play the steelers right after they play baltimore. I'm pittsburgh penguins fan too. I remember times that they played the philadelphia flyers in seven game series. They beat the flyers but were so beat up afterwards. That is the equivalent of playing the baltimore ravens. And that's what happens when you play them. Afterwards you can think about this in a few weeks after the steelers. Play baltimore win or lose. It's going to be a tougher game than you would think against the washington football team because they are the very next opponent also in that dallas game. The steelers had little time to prepare for garrett gilbert at the quarterback position but look they're professionals. They should beat this team. The cowboys had so much pride invested in that particular game after listening and reading. Everybody predicting on how bad they were going to lose the pittsburgh. Look mike tomlin said it best. He said that the steelers are going to get everybody's best because they are undefeated. Everybody wants to knock the king from the mountaintop. I get it. I still believe that the majority of this team is at a higher level and the steelers can overcome adversity better than it did just a season or two ago that jags historically give the steelers fits and we'll do so again this weekend with the twenty twenty steelers don't care about point spreads or style. There are more concerned about wins. And that's how i feel about this special pittsburgh steelers team going up against a one win. Jacksonville team factor fiction number five. Where the steelers sit in power rankings is a relevant fact power rankings. Don't mean a thing at the end of the day. It's who is hoisting that sticky lombardi during confetti snowstorm in tampa in the month of february. While espn cbs sports and nbc. Sports rank them in of steel at the very top of their respective power rankings. The sporting news and nfl dot com or listing the kansas city chiefs at the top. Just a few minutes ago. I mentioned how teams are gunning for the top team. Steelers really don't care though where they are ranked actually ranking them. Out of the top spot provides ben rothlisberger cam heyward and their coworkers with a nice sized chip of disrespect setting square on their shoulder pads the recognition of being the best..

"Brian at davis. And another edition of pittsburgh steelers fact or fiction. Your pittsburgh steelers are not wanna know they are not four and five. They are not even eight. No the pittsburgh steelers are nine zero for the first time in their esteemed history and we're gonna see if that train could keep a role in this weekend in duval county. Yes it's jacksonville week. My friends week. Eleven is upon us. We're getting ready for thanksgiving. That's coming up. The steelers will play again only four days after that. Would you cannot look ahead to the baltimore ravens. You've got to think about jacksonville and this is the week to do. So but you know there's always so much to talk about when we're talking about pets berg steelers especially this week you know. They were down the week before they were down to dallas. They almost lost a dallas. A two in sixteen at the time. When they wiped off the sweat they came back and they won that game the very next week there could have been a letdown against a great rookie joe burrow and the cincinnati bengals and there was not they actually one in more dominating of fashion by the score of thirty six to ten so that is absolutely fantastic news. This team keeps on going. There is a possibility of a letdown. And we will talk about that against jacksonville. Let's go ahead and take a look and take a listen to some very bold statements regarding the pittsburgh steelers and we will go ahead and label them as fact or as fiction here we go should the steelers go sixteen. Though it doesn't guarantee a super bowl title fact that is an absolute fact. My friends only one. Nfl franchise in the super bowl era has finished nfl season with a perfect regular season record and have gone on to win the big game. Of course that was the famed one thousand nine hundred seventy two miami dolphins who went fourteen and no and finished at seventeen and ultimately and yes they have never let you forget that the new england patriots of two thousand seven came very close by going eight to know but they lost perfection in their final contest against the new york football giants the apprehension. Dolphins are the only team to win their first fourteen games to pick up the sticky lombardi to thirteen o teens. The two thousand nine new orleans saints and the chicago bears of nineteen eighty five. Went on to win the title but with that being said so many other teams that have finished above that have not won the title whatsoever so it seems if you could win fourteen games or thirteen games to start your nfl season. You've got that possibility if you win. Above that you have never won a title. So the pittsburgh steelers do not have to go sixteen in l. But they still have to stay really sharp because they have the kansas city chiefs right behind them. It's where you finish later factor fiction number two. The steelers absolutely have to get the running game going where they will not succeed in the play. Offs fiction yeah. I sat it fiction. Look i'm going to get some flack for this. I know it. But i don't think the establishment of a running game is that paramount to the steelers. It's important but can they win without it. Yes they're line is built more to protect the quarterback and thwart the advances of oncoming pass. Rushers it's true. They can run the ball and they did it very well. The first corps the season but the black and gold are realizing a lot of success on high percentage short passes. The bubble screens are working. And guys like juju smith schuster. Ray ray mcleod chase claypool. Diontae johnson and james washington are moving the chains successfully. It's not that you have bad running backs. Because james conner. Anthony mcfarland junior and benny snell. Junior have done and rebel jobs. This season especially connor but the holes are not opening for them right now. We talked about the concept of the bubble screen. That todd haley was for when he called the short game as an offensive coordinator. This is not a typical steelers offense. This year they have the speed of make this work and it will eventually open up opportunities when they do call a running plan. If defense do find a way to defend this method then they could switch back and get more to the ground but the bottom line remains that this offensive game plan is legit as hammer would say too legit to legitimate yet. Yeah it doesn't matter how the meals are prepared. It's just how good they taste right factor of fiction number three. You can't count on a mike hilton return until you see him on the field of play fact. I love the play of my kelton. I really do. He is an unsung hero. On the steelers defense. I also miss number twenty eight excellence against the run and the pass the undrafted free agent. Out of ole miss is one of the most underrated players to wear the black and gold this year in fact. He's nearly irreplaceable. On that defense but hilton has declared that he has been ready to return to the gridiron and play often this season while being injured only to suffer setback or to the steelers have been getting decent production from camp sutton in fact number twenty has played great but they need hilton back. This week mike is put on social media that he is back again. He's put everybody on notice that he's going to be playing against jacksonville but his shoulder injury has taken time to heal and he could be deemed not ready to play once again. Disappointing many hour. Wait until i see hilton and action. Until i'm comfortable and i still might not be completely comfortable factor fiction number four. The steelers will play down to jacksonville on sunday. We gotta go fiction on this one. In past seasons the steelers have been known to struggle against teams that they were favourite. Beat handily games against tampa back in two thousand fourteen. Remember the jets bears in two thousand seventeen and many more have resulted in losses..

"Be a great free agent fine fact. There was some hesitation regarding eric. Ebron ball security and his pension for landing on the injured reserve when he was picked up by the steelers back in march however the big tight end has had a remarkable first half for his third team. Now the pittsburgh steelers sure his catch numbers really. Don't come close to that of a travis kelsey or maybe george kittle but ebron is not relied upon as a first option for ben rothlisberger like those aforementioned players are for their quarterbacks however number eighty five has developed a great report with big ben and his twenty nine catches for two hundred eighty five yards and three scores has been valuable for the steelers. His last score was league game winner against dallas in the second half of twenty twenty. Expect an even bigger output from the combo of ben rothlisberger and eric ebron as they continue to gel together. Ebron is currently the third leading receiver on the pittsburgh steelers. But i look for ben to look for him so much more in the second half of the season so these next eight games should be exciting. The tight end record for touchdowns was set by heath miller in two thousand thirteen and that was with eight. I expect ebron with three right now to have maybe five to tie that record or six in the second half of the season now that he has had a lot of time with his quarterback are these statements valid. We will soon see. I'm not endorsing all of these. I'm not saying that all of these are absolutely going to happened. But it's definitely what my gut is telling me will occur what matters most are your opinions on the matter. Please state them in the article on bt se dot com and that's behind the curtain dot com or on social media. You can get a hold of me at bt se. Be a d.

"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Family for joining me today. you know. there's always so much talk when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers especially now because the inquiries our ever evolving when the steelers struggled last against dallas a to win dallas team. A lot of people started to get really worried with the steelers at eight and own. Now it's a record in. It's exciting but people were thinking now that this team is a lot weaker than their record suggests whether that be national media or pessimistic fans. It could be now with another to win team coming into pittsburgh this week. The cincinnati bengals. There are more concerns that the clock will soon strike midnight on this team and there are plenty of questions surrounding them as well when we have the covid. Nineteen situation with vance mcdonald. Everybody has wondering about that too. Bts's tries to answer some of the poignant wondering ahead of time so take a listen at some of these statements and then we will label them as fact or fiction factor fiction number one. Ben rothlisberger should rest on sunday regardless of covid nineteen test results fiction. I've heard suggested from many pittsburgh. Radio stations also in social media. I understand that. Ben has soreness in both of his knees from that injury suffered right before the end of the first half in dallas. Yes he could indeed use the rest i get. I also recognize that it would be favorable to get mason. Rudolph some much-needed reps but this would be a similar scenario to a pitcher tossing a perfect game in the final week of the major league baseball season and taking him out in the sixth inning to give him some rest. The steelers really need to find a way to keep winning and resting. Van in favor of rudolf could mean a loss in being overtaken by kansas city in the conference or by baltimore in the division since he has a hot young quarterback in the form joe burrow. And the two five and one bengals have a potential to be dangerous for pittsburgh. You need to have all hands on deck so in this situation. If ben is ready to go and you know ben is going to say he's ready to go. Then he needs to play factor. Fiction number. Two joe burrow is the best passer the steelers have faced so far in the year twenty twenty speaking of burrow he definitely the right guy to go number one overall to the cincinnati bengals in the twenty twenty. Nfl selection draft the heisman. Trophy winner from lsu has had one terrible game and those against baltimore if you're going to struggle as an nfl rookie. The ravens are likely to be the tormentors and the tough task. The steelers are two definitely that swarming steelers defense is going to be tough for this guy to overcome but burrow was the thirteenth ranked quarterback in the nfl according to pro football focus. And he's playing behind the twenty sixth ranked offensive line. Those guys are leading offensive players. Get to joe burrow like crazy and the steelers have a relentless pass rush but if burrow can be joe cole. The rookie has the potential to become the tiger king in the queen city as far as pastors go boroughs probably above carson wentz and a touch below ryan tannehill who the steelers faced this season. So he's not going to be the best that pittsburgh is seen so far but he will be soon enough. Watch out for joe burrow this weekend. He's going to throw some touchdown passes against the steelers. Defense factor fiction stefan to. It is having an all pro season fact. I actually think that the gigantic two it has moved ahead of cameron heyward for the top spot on the steelers defensive line but that does not diminish what cam heyward has done camps. Football intelligence and savvy are still valuable assets but to it is proving. His dominance number ninety one has taken down quarterbacks with six sacks so far in twenty twenty and has registered seventeen quarterback hits that is second in both categories on the pittsburgh steelers overall stefan ranks. Second in the nfl to t. J. watt in quarterback hits and tied for fourth in the conference in the nfl with bed do pre in sacks. That's something all pro voters really need to watch closely stuff onto. It is having a special season it needs to be in all pro. Season factor fiction number four. It's time to start worrying about. Chris boswell again fiction boswell. Had his first bad game in almost two years and people are really freaking out now. Sure he had an extra point blocked he missed another and technically missed a fifty four yard field goal but when you dig down deep. His line lapsed on the block and the field goal was really lucky to be wiped out by a penalty but after that deadball penalty wiped out the wide left. He not true in ice water. Fifty nine yarder to set a franchise record for the pittsburgh steelers. The previous record was by gerry. Anderson and chris brown who previously kicked fifty five yard field goals for the pittsburgh steelers officially on the season. Boswell is eleven for eleven on field goal attempts and twenty four for twenty seven when it comes to points after. He must one in the opener and he missed to the other day but is that reason to start worrying about him. Sure boswell is the fifth most accurate kicker in the nfl. His in with a eighty seven point nine percent field goal right but sometimes players can go on a slide quickly. I know steeler nation is having flashbacks to two thousand eighteen. But a lot of people need to remember even though it was not disclosed. That bad year was because boswell was hurt. If you look back to two thousand seventeen when boswell singlehandedly one games or maybe single footage only one game for the pittsburgh steelers and if you look to last year when he was nearly perfect as well. I don't think there's too much to fred about now. Maybe keep a watchful eye on chris boswell but once again he is more of an asset. Now more than ever for the steelers fact or fiction number five. Eric ebron is shaping up to.

"Forty six to bring a guy in and have some extra depth so this team is really focused on winning. Now they know the windows going to close they know ben goes that it's going to be a major rebuild rebuild because we saw it we saw it last year right and i think you know looking back on sort of Bullock triple b era steelers. There was this sense of like whenever like seventeen year old plays. They're like madden franchise franchises like okay. I gotta get my quarterback three hundred yards. And i got my my wider zero hundred yards and i gotta get my running back. You know like those are your objectives and it does feel like there is this who cares however we gotta get it done. Let's get it on if it's ugly. It's pretty if we throw the ball anxiety. Throw the ball. If you time. It's true steeler way. I think that's exemplified in the defensive. Play certainly I don't know if you know this You know by we i. I talked about on the show that was on the you guys do which in the week i hunted was great. I if you're if you're unaware every cowboys fan is incredibly. Shore the tj. What is not on to accomplish. Passed on tj watts draft taco charleston. In two thousand and seventeen. It was a mistake that they're still kind of living down. And i i would have from the perspective of on the cowboys get burned. By that bad decision i would have loved for. This has been really. You know like the cowboys. Eagles are going kind of shot for shot in the nfc east. And they blow this game because tj watch says game of his life to prove them wrong. That is not the case By i mean what. What is he met with us. Just just to be solved in in a lot of ruins record. He is everything right now to that steelers defense in bud dupree is too. I mean it's kind of like the board game clue if colonel muster doesn't get you with the rope in the library than professor plum is going to nail you in the conservatory with the ranch. I mean that's what's gonna happen. You're going have either side. One of these guys is going to kill you but t. J. watt is the heart and soul of this team. He is the one guy that they are going to sign more than anything. And you know. I like how you mentioned that. Two thousand seventeen draft great draft for the steelers. 'cause juju and james conner and cameron sutton came in those first four picks but not everybody was thrilled about the t. J. watt picks. Because they're thinking oh he's just he's not jj. I mean he smaller. He hasn't played full-time outside linebacker. I heard you say that the guy has a motor. He has a motor. He a pride about him. He is one of those guys that you know. It's a little brother syndrome to. He's like. I'm going to beat my little. My big brother. I really do. And he's he's just be man for that team. He is becoming the face of the defense. In the face of the franchise when ben goes it's pretty much. Tj watts team as far as that goes as you saw what jj's done in houston but tj has an opportunity right now to go ahead and believe this or not. He has an opportunity to beat the franchise record four seasons from now in sacks because the record is only eighty point five owned by james harrison. Coming into the season coming into his fourth season. he had thirty four and a half sacks he is six and a half now he's halfway the record and if he keeps up that pace he could do it in three or four years in. You know they're going to do everything they can to sign. This guy mentioned james harrison. That is a sore point for cowboys. Fans i think every catholics can would tell you that democracy was robbed the defensive player of the year in two thousand eight. If that if that cobb was team had had success And not finished the playoffs. I i wonder that those awards are so narrative driven a lot of respects at. But you know it is what it is. I don't know. I didn't want to just throw this at one. Point to release our pre game. Show mike mccarthy mentioned this from pennsylvania talked about growing up a big steelers pirates fan. He mentioned who's favorites dealer was of all time. Do you know the answer app yet. Actually i don't so if i'm gonna see jack lambert it's jack i remember. That's what sir. I would guess that. Well you know bret michaels of poison fame is a huge jack lambert fan. And he's a huge steelers fan here because he's from western pennsylvania actually and up in central pennsylvania in the mechanics per area but he talks about being a steeler fan all the time in when people talk about the defense from the seventies. There's always joe greene. There's always mel blonde. There's all there's all those guys you want the guy that wasn't afraid to spout his mouth off and case in point cowboys fans probably hate him for super bowl ten but we have a writer at behind the steel curtain. That his he's my partner on on the pre game show and his title for the longest time was cliff harris still a punk because of that play pat and roy jarallah and then the steelers who were struggling jack lambert comes and body slams him yes. He should've been kicked out of that game. He wasn't with that inspired the entire team. So the whole bad assery of the steelers is basically. It's jack lambert. He was he was the bad guy and it was good to be bad with him. And you you were never afraid you were never afraid when that guy was around. They used to joke that when the boogeyman goes to bed he looks under his bed for jack lambert and that was the deal so i had a chance to meet him about ten years ago and he was the same guy same personality in sounded the same way and it was. He was sitting the same way he did on the sideline drink a beer. Smoking a cigarette at five o'clock in the afternoon. That is awesome. That's a hall of famer quote harris now by the way which that's that's so that's what makes this game is so rich in history and tradition and legacy You know a name. That is not brought up. I feel like enough in just. Nfl lower but certainly As common denominator between two thousand students ernie stop ernie stalker. I believe the first pittsburgh steeler to have his jersey retired before. Joe greene very recently and one of the architects behind doomsday defense. Under tom landry Like that name never get set..
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Right now, I'm going to say fiction would love to see Rosie next back in Pittsburgh steeler uniform, but that just does not seem to be likely at this time fact or fiction. The wide receiver position is the deepest that the steelers have had in years look here the wide receiving corps Ted of Juju Smith Schuster, deonte, Johnson Chase Klay poll, and James Washington is so deep they didn't. Miss a beat, Wendy Andre Johnson suffered a concussion the first half of week three against the Houston Texans would they weren't worried about the wide receiver core and the other pass catchers as well as the tight ends. You've got Vance McDonald. You've got Eric Iran in their Eric Ibrox really came alive in that game in. Vance had two key catches as well. y'All so so rewrite McLeod get some snaps and it was interesting because Ray Ray got those snaps even before Deontay. Johnson went down with that concussion. Well I kill your unit needs to have all of their men. Healthy others are really good at stepping up in any of their absent. The two thousand ten team had hines, Ward Mike Wallace Sanders Antwan, randle El Antonio. Brown at times was their fifth receiver. If you can believe that he was a rookie but that's how deep they were. Other units boasted is like Jericho Khatri Martavis Bryant Markus Wheaton even Darius Hayward Bay in the last few years but I think this is going to be a lineup. Of wide receivers that really gonNA rival any of those groups they might not be number one that I group that I mentioned the won the Super Bowl. Two, thousand ten might be number one right now with this is still a very good group. It could be argued that there are deeper units out there but the steelers are unselfish and strong here, and that's what those other teams didn't really have you an unselfish guys like Hines Ward in Antoine ran well, but then you had guys like Manny Sanders. The young money crew Manny Sanders Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace. So I'm really happy with this court at a wide receivers in a even the addition of number five of Ray McLeod. This is why I'm happy with this group. Because when you're leading receiver has under fifty yards on the day and they win, there's no threat to a gatorade cooler. There is no boycotting of practice the next day hint hint I'm talking to you Mr Brown. So look there's no egos on this team they are here for one stat and once that only and that is the W. And with this quartet, there's going to be plenty of WS. When you're playing unselfish fact or fiction speaking of Macleod, the speedster will break off a kick return for a touchdown in two thousand twenty. Friends. I'm saying it right here Ray Ray McLeod is electric. Now I know that he was onto other teams in his young NFL career I know he was a member of the Carolina Panthers a member of the Buffalo Bills. The rap on McLeod has never been his speed, but it's been his ball handling skills. You know that's going to be a concern with a lot of speedsters, but here's the thing with Ray Ray McLeod, he's a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball really seems inevitable that. Number fourteen going to go all the way on one of these kickoffs currently McLeod is tied for fourth in the League with a twenty, eight point eight average per return I can't remember the last time. The Pittsburgh steelers were the top ten on return average as far as kick returns a lot lately with Ryan Switzer was there. You had a situation where he was a very short handed guy, but he wasn't going to get a lot of yards as far as that goes Markus Wheaton as well. Many included myself. Think it's Time that Ray is going to reach the end zone you throw in the fact that Ray Ray is also very good at filling in at punt returner Wendy. Andre Johnson went down you've got an electric group. You've got the Johnson and Ray Macleod back there on special teams. Somebody's GONNA break. One we saw Johnson do it last year I think McLeod's GonNa do it this year you might have both of them do it this year, but it's really encouraging to know that the kick return is back in the steel city fact or fiction the steelers will break the shrew all-time consecutive sack gastric the season. Okay. Look here's the deal the reason I say true all-time consecutive sack streak. Because we didn't start talking about sacs officially as a stat since nineteen eighty two. So when you look at the steelers all time list, it's true the all time leader, James Harrison he's got eighty point five. Now number two is Jason Gilded that is true as well. But for the longest time, the unofficial sack leader for the Pittsburgh steelers was who is at number three and that's Elsie Greenwood. The reason he is the unofficial leader is because he retired in nineteen eighty-one they didn't start counting sacks until nineteen, eighty two as an official stat. So what? You're looking at here for him. He has compiled that number of stats and at unofficial number, but it's one that they are the NFL was holding true to. So if you look at the number of sacks, that is the record that is held by the Tampa Bay buccaneers, they recorded sixty nine sacks. Excuse me sixty nine straight games of saxe but BTS's stat. Allah. Just Dave Scofield, took a look at this and he is reporting that the Detroit lions are actually the true sack streak leaders seventy six straight contests from nineteen, sixty to nineteen, sixty five. Look. The steelers right now are at sixty one game while they have the defensive firepower, they're likely to surpass the buccaneers this year for the official mark, they would have to go through full season, basically sixteen more games to have the record on their own I think. That, mark in two, thousand, twenty one but I think they're going to have the official record in two thousand twenty but you know Pittsburgh steeler team is more than capable of getting that record. And they're also more than capable of getting the unofficial record as well, which is a feather in their cap it you know they would love love.
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Pittsburgh. Steeler fans welcome to another addition in the family of podcast from behind the still curtain. My name is Brian Anthony Davis and you have stumbled upon Pittsburgh steelers fact or fiction fact the Pittsburgh steelers do not have a game in week four Duda Covid nineteen and the Tennessee titans having eighteen staffers players testing positive for the virus. This is a big deal We do pray for those players in those staffers get well soon, the NFL is now investigating Tennessee to see if there's any negligence involving the outbreak and so that's something that they're going to be looking at. But here let's just look at it this. Way The steelers are now going to be playing in week seven now thereby week is now it's an impromptu by week but fact these players couldn't go home and go anywhere. They couldn't go on vacation with their families during the bye week because they have to test every day. So this is a new world we find us in twenty twenty fiction. The steelers are going to be at a disadvantage because of having the play all of those games in a row, they're going to have to play thirteen games in a row. Go back to two thousand one with the Pittsburgh steelers when unfortunately the steelers and the nation. Could not play at all in week two because of the tragedies of September eleventh. You remember that from eighteen years ago while there was something else going on as well as that for the Pittsburgh steelers, there's only thirty one teams at the time. Two years removed from the Cleveland browns becoming team number thirty, one and one year away. From the Houston Texans becoming t number thirty two. So they played week one September ninth. There was a loss in Jacksonville. The steelers did not play their second game of two thousand one. Until get this September thirtieth. It was basically a three week by Pittsburgh steelers but with the bye week, just coming that week that a lot of time. Did they suffer from it absolutely not that's dealer team led by Kordell, Stewart Jerome Bettis and a suffocating defense. They went thirteen and three that year think about this. They lost the first game of the season. so they ended up playing seventeen straight games. To end that season by the time they were done and they had a fantastic year. So a lot of people that are saying right now that the steelers are going to suffer because of having the. Play thirteen games in a row now. Now, that's that's not a problem. These players don't worry about that whatsoever. So what we are looking at is factor fiction. This was the first podcast I ever did for behind the still curtain way back in two thousand, Sixteen Zach Parnes and myself would do factor fiction every week and it was like I said it was my first ever bts's podcast really my first ever podcast we did that on blog talk radio back then it was a lot of fun. I have evolved ever since into the podcast or that I am now. So it's a complete different story. There's always going to be something to talk about with Pittsburgh steelers and quote my good friend Rowdy Roddy Piper now look we were never. I've never met Rowdy Roddy Piper but I like to think that if we had met each other that we would have been good buddies. So I'm going to call my good friend and we quote every week. Tony Fiona I do on the steelers hangover in steelers question and answer Rowdy Roddy Piper used to say just when you think you've got all the answers we keep changing the questions when it comes to the Pittsburgh steelers. There's always questions there's always going to be different answers. and. There's always going to be wondering and that's what factor fiction is all about. So I'm going to think five pack of questions and we're going to go ahead and talk about that. Now to see whether I deem them as factor fiction and that's something that you could agree with or disagree with whatever you may choose factor fiction number one with Derek Watt out two to three weeks, the steelers are likely to bring back Roosevelt Knicks Rosie Nix was a great player for the Pittsburgh steelers he. Was a pro bowl fullback in two thousand, eighteen fan favourite as well. But when he went down for most of last season, the running game really suffered he was not healthy. The team ended up cutting him in the off season and he signed on with the Indianapolis Colts. However, Rosie did not make Frank Greg's fifty three man roster. What are the reasons being is because indy was more of a one back offense not a to back offense and they really couldn't find room for him. Frank Reich was. Quoted as saying that you know, we think Rosie's a great player we would have loved to keep them. So when Derek Watt went down last week against the Houston. Texans and was deemed to be out two to three weeks. Rosie Nix was on the radar of a lot of fans saying, Hey, they should bring back Rosie next. Look. I. Don't think this is going to happen. So I'm going to say fiction to this, and the reason I'm going to say fiction if it was a season ending injury. That would be more likely. So if what was going to be down for the rest of the year, they might have went and explored that with am Trey edmunds on the practice squad trey Edmunds has done a lot as far as a practicing at fullback clang fullback. He did it quite a bit when Rosie one town in two, thousand and nineteen. So that's probably the direction that they're going to go and right now they know that Derek what is going to be back they said two to three. Weeks, and with the Titan game being down, that's one less game that Derek, what's going to miss as well..
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Just. Coming in ahead of us how great does that feel that we finally reached the point after would feels like the longest off-season ever it is. It's definitely been the most surreal off-season ever. It still doesn't feel like there's going to the football in less than a week. It. It's almost difficult to get myself in that mode of okay. We game we grind. Let's go but yeah, it's happening. Yeah. It's finally happening. We've reached this point where we can finally watch the giants play and we weren't entirely sure if we would ever get to this point, there's been nothing but doubt since March, there's been ups and downs in being optimistic on the season starting but we've overcome all of that. We now get to see our team the New York giants play that. means. This is the first of many preview shows throughout the season. This Pittsburgh steeler team is not one that the giants can take too lightly despite them missing out on the playoffs last year, they are talented in every single position group but because they did not have big Ben last season, they underperformed significantly a guy who underperformed I think because of not having Big Ben, is Juju. Smith Schuster last season was a huge drop off for him missing a couple of games because of. Injury only having around five hundred receiving yards despite having an explosive start to his career that drop off Chris I'm not entirely too worried about that I. Think once we actually see Ben Rothlisberger comeback he is going to go back to being de legitimate receiving threat for this steelers team that we've known him to be. Yeah absolutely. Yeah I. I think the giants are going to have their hands full with Juju Smith Schuster socially in this first game band is GonNa be he's GonNa be fired up to play. I think Smith Schuster is going to be fired up to play he is he is not the most dynamic athlete at wide receiver, but he is a very detailed wide receiver. He is a guy who knows how to use his routes as a weapon. And he knows. He knows how to win at the catch point. He doesn't drop the ball all that often, and if a cornerback isn't ready for him, he can bully a defensive back and he he's got some help this year to right. They're adding Chase Klay Pool into the mix after drafting him pretty early in this past draft Class Smith Schuster though you pointed out the big key thing when you talk about him, not the most explosive athlete he's not gonNA run a four three like some of these. Other speedsters in the league. But he is he's big. He's got long arms. He's got a very big catch radius a technician when you watch him run his routes and that is what allows him to get open the one interesting thing that I noticed when watching Smith Schuster is despite him having that size of being a primary X. outside receiver they really liked using him in the slot and I think that created a lot of mismatches because he's fast enough to outrun linebackers and he's too. Big To go against a slot corner if they come out in a nickle package, it's almost reminiscent to how Michael Thomas is used with the New Orleans. Saints now Smith Schuster is not the same level of receiver as Michael, Thomas, but it is a similar style of usage. You're going to see him in the slot you're going to see him run some short underneath route. So you're also going to see him come across over the middle and catch some jump balls if needed, he is A. Guy That is not afraid of contact because he has very, very good hands yet that that's a role you seek quite a few teams using. Now you mentioned Michael Thomas, which you know he is just on a different level at wide receiver right now, the eagles have liked to use big slots there have been a few other teams that have used the big slot and use them effectively, and it does create a lot of matchup problems because usually you're slot receiver is a small quick shifty guy. Just looking at the steelers depth chart, it's easy to pin deontay Johnson as their slot receiver because he's five, ten, hundred, eight, five, hundred, ninety pounds good route runner quick guy he looks like he should be there they're receiver all the time, but he isn't, and that can put a defense in a bind when you're expecting the little guy in all of a sudden jujubes they're exactly in that is how a lot of these offenses now in the NFL like you said, are trying to create mismatches and confusion by using a guy that is typically on the outside putting him in the inside and not really knowing how to handle. Covering a guy that big and that has that good of hands to our listeners who are on twitter give Juju with a follow. He is a really entertaining guy. He he might drive the giants mad on Monday night, but he is a good follow on twitter. Also has a really fun YouTube page I'm not sure if if any of our listeners are you Chris seen any of his videos, but he he's done some fun stuff. One of the things he did that I saw. was. He went full Pittsburgh steelers gear when he really enrolled in classes at USC. So he showed up to class in complete full gear a walked around campus and everything like he was hopping on pick up soccer games in full sealers like when I say full gear, it's not like he was wearing a t shirt and shorts the guy was wearing full pads. And helmets well doing all that stuff I? Don't know if you happen to see that Chris I haven't but that is amazing. So minuses personality though Smith Schuster is a very key receiver in player to watch in this offense. Another guy that seemed to have a bit of a drop off year last year was James Connor a gigantic running back six foot one to thirty four the steelers team took over the load for Levy on bell when he was sitting out but because he was a bit banged up from. Over usage and improper usage because they were so desperate to move the ball on the ground he didn't play that many games he only played intending only rushed for four hundred and sixty four yards that doesn't really indicate how good of a running back. He is one thing with connor similar to Smith Schuster is he is not a dynamic explosive. He is not like a small Jitterbug type guy like Alvin Kamara. Now, this is a a slower version of maybe a Derrick Henry in terms of size he is big he is powerful. He knows where to find those rushing lanes and he will get those extra yards because he has that good explosiveness in terms of lower body strength and body control..

Drive that I'm thinking of is from the ten yard line in Super Bowl forty three. That's right. That is correct guy. I can't think of any now. Granted there might be one from the seventies and I'm not fully aware of because I wasn't alive but at the same time that was people. Forget those a holding call in that thing the first lady but also in right before that say shorting in the end zone Chris Key Moya to withhold no. Yeah harding's it was note Jeff.

But because I love Larry Fitzgerald Fan and I get Larry Fitzgerald and I love Kurt in order and I would have been rooting for them. There'd be that'd be one team that I would do. I would root for an any super bowl. That team with those guys on it. Just just not. When they're playing? My guys is a great story but the steelers Dave quick question. I asked my my dad my brother this Ben should have been the MVP DP that game. Yes and the story. Yeah I do I agree yeah I I just don't understand why he didn't get it. I mean that whole San Antonio had incredible drive data drive was remarkable. But Oh my gosh I it was it was tremendous and is that. There's any year that they could have done koby peas. It would have been out. Have you ever done that before. Yeah really actually. They had three one year for the in super bowl thirteen. The Dallas cowboys had Randy White Harvey Martin and there may have been third. I actually think there was a third. Wow but I know I know Randy White Harvey Morton were. Were the two real quick before we get started with our show in the topic of today's shows shield. Ninety one puts five dollars tipped Good long drive tomorrow. I'll save the Stream for that. Have a good show guys shield. Thank you always for your support. I hope you're enjoying this show on Friday as she let let me say. Let me say Real Quick Super Bowl twelve before anybody corrects me.

Oh it was forty you set forty three hundred forty three and I actually went back to check it. It was forty one. My Gosh was only two guys. It was Harvey Martin I and Randy White and Super Bowl twelve but still co.. MVP's all right. Today's episode headline title is the two thousand. Nineteen Pittsburgh steelers rookie review. It's something that we always typically do during the season and even in the off season we start breaking down the steelers roster position by position. So we do we preview things but we kind of dig into one specific topic into today's going to be the two thousand nineteen Pittsburgh steelers rookie class. So we'RE GONNA go round by round round pick by peg in. We're going to talk about. I know a lot of people say will. You can't judge a rookie after one year and I agree one hundred percent and I'm not asking Dave and Brian anyone in the live chat watching on Youtube to say project where they're going to be in three years. I'm saying how did their rookie season go. You want a great it on an eight F scout scale or do you just want to just give some tidbits about Brian. What are you GONNA do? I think we could give tidbits I really don't think we have to give a grade but if you want you because I I know exactly what Brian go to want to do. He's going to give every single one of them what they should get an incomplete. Because it's very difficult on your rookie year. We can't throw that one out. There they are producer Lance Williams just said great in the live right the ad that we're not but we're not allowed to use incomplete kept using complete. Okay what's relievers anyways. Okay for all right the topic. The Pittsburgh steelers moved from twenty up to ten they trade with the Denver Broncos. Get none other than Mr Devon Bush Bush from inside linebacker out of Michigan. Gentlemen Grade IT You can give some tidbits before you're great but if you're looking at Devon Bush's body of work in two thousand nineteen. Brian will start with you. How would you view it? Well if you look at Devin Bush the fact that they traded up for this guy and they also gave away a pick this year. Your Your number three pick when they're getting ready to pick number three. It's not gonNA be there. It's GONNA be the Denver Broncos and you know why because that's part of your Devon Bush trade. We should be happy with that. Because that's everything you wanted. I saw somebody today. Talk in fact I think it was was an email that That I saw thus one of my other counterparts. Dave Scofield got Saying that that Bush's too small and should be moved aligned. Moved a safety and I'm like no this is. This is everything you wanted out of this guy. He goes sideline to sideline he had. He had a touchdown. This year could could have had another one. But as a rookie. He did more in the La- I mean. I don't know of a rookie. That has achieved more on the defensive side of the ball. Better than Devon Bush Junior and. I'm including Troy Paolo. Malo because if you grade if this was is two thousand four after the two thousand three season you're probably given this guy a C. Minus at Best Chore Paulo. Malo and. We're talking about him. I'm in the hall of fame next week. I had a wonderful rookie rookie year. I was actually surprised the all rookie team and I was surprised that that that He didn't have a more consideration for the pro bowl because he's thought of across the League as one of the future stars on defense so I mean I have to give this guy in a minus. Okay Dave thoughts on Devon Bush be plus not bits has decreased. Now honestly I was teetering between a B. Plus or minus. I said I said I basically said I'm GONNA give whichever one Bryant has it only only because I thought he had a fantastic year and try not hear that he said at one point he was an alternate for the pro bowl. Oh if enough people would have bailed out. I thought there was a report out there that but I'm not sure Only only bad thing about the ravens. I'm not making the Super Bowl. Is a lot of guys. Missed out on that. They could've they could've filled in with them but but once again I thought he had a very good year. I should probably bump that up to a minus because the only reason I didn't give him an a was because of what the steelers steelers did to get him because of the trade up and the no pick this year. It doesn't mean he disappointed me. It just meant that. He has much higher expectations that that I'm going to have from almost any other rookie. And he met almost all of them. There's room for improvement but I thought he had a very solid year ear. And I'm really looking forward to see exactly how they're going to utilize them with with the same thing that Brian mentioned where or someone contacted me about saying he. He's too small. We can't stop the run. He should be a strong safety now. That's not what he feels. It moved up ten spots for him to be a safety. They've moved up to the LINEBACKER. And your your linebackers. Packers have different roles. I really like the Combo of him and Vinnie. BVT together seeing what they can do after Bush now has a year under. There's belt I think the sky's the limit for the Combo wasn't a life. Chances That day just looked Bush was named a pro bowl alternate. So you're correct Yes good stuff. A lot of people are Lance Sir Lancelot is in live Chad. He can he's comparing belted Kendra He's comparing Devon Bush to Kendra Bell Number Ninety seven in That was he was the defensive rookie of the year. Kendra bill had a remarkable marketable yet he season and that was incredible. No one no one saw his ankles not holding up the way that they did he was fantastic. And you know that's the guy forgot about. That was two thousand. One I believe an Casey Hampton was the first round of that year so that was a pretty nice draft. Absolutely I. I'M GONNA give Devon Bush a solid all it be I think he has a ton of potential I think the Mike Tomlin limited him a lot this year not so much the in actually he didn't really hide it. Tomlin said this often in his in his press conferences about with these young players with these rookies. You have to kind of sometimes you have to pull them back rain than in a little bit. And you saw more of Devon Bush reacting in the second half of the season I think that his arrows definitely pointing up. I'll give him a B so we're all on her bed same. The same realm in terms of picks. There's one more thing about Bush he didn't have to do as much because of the presence of Mark Barron also whether you like Mark Barron or not and we're going to have a slew of people in the live chat not saying he's garbage cut him but he was there and he had some very productive games and they were they weren't able to they didn't have to force him into into anything. Because you had Baron as well as Bush. Now you're right. Well good one of the things you got to remember about him. I was trying to pull up one last last thing about him. He led the team.

"Show joining me as always the triumphant infantry. Oh that's myself that's Brian. Anthony Davis and Dave Scofield Brian. What's going on? Hello my friends and welcome to a new decade. Then we like Motley crue through a decade of decadence. It's I hate when people say not the Motley crue thing just the the decade thing sounds like it just seems like way too much time has passed. I just I don't like it. Time needs to slow down Dave. What's going on with you? Yeah that Kinda got me depressed a little bit too whenever my kids who who are younger my two older kids that are eight and eleven stayed up til midnight and they were talking about all. What's new decade ten years? I'm going to be this that the other Yeah I'm like in ten years. I just hope to still be here. Who knows these? PODCASTS will look like in ten years guys I mean it could the Perez. The Sky's the limit. But good. Dave how are we just going to say. Look look at Bt Se podcasts. The latte when the last decade started there is no such thing was there. Gosh there was those love. You're that went back and dug up the very first youtube video. That we did did and it was Lance Williams and myself for the standard is a standard. And we did this. I was in my mother-in-law's basement. We were inbetween houses and I had hair la more than eighteen. Hell and it was right after the bears game where the protests took place before the gain in in. Look how far we've come so we'll just say you never know you never know what's GonNa Happen. Let's start off with the around the horn segment. Which is what we normally do? If you're a first time listener to the show where we both taking minutes talk about anything to happen with the Pittsburgh steelers in this past week Brian Usual can sharp and spitting in your vest. Why don't we start with you? Will you know every girl's crazy about a sharp dressed man Jeff in you know First of all I can't wait for the new decade of PODCASTS. Ten years from now lance will be with animatronic figure. That'd be great. I definitely want to see that. I think that'd be a whole fun. you know what's really happened this week. We've had some stuff the hall of fame news but with the steelers. Basically the bottom line to everything is the fact. That Mason Rudolph is your number two quarterback next year and Mike Tomlin Ellen said pretty much. Nothing else You know he's proud of this team. Were proud of this team. That's great but what most of steeler nation once once is due here. What coach is going to be gone and I have news for you? There's going to be no news as far as coaches being being gone. Don't expect to hear anything. What you have is what you're going to see in August and September and beyond Dave? Do you think might be a coaching change. I thought Tom was open to that in his press conference. Yeah I think he's open to that because he just kind of didn't want to. I don't know that he didn't want to address it specifically and by saying he's open to it that kind of leaves some wiggle room in there but I don't see anything major honestly I would like to see if I see anything from it. I would like to see more additions than subtractions. I would really like them to expand their coach. EXPAT coaching staff by a couple of positions. Ya we've had it steelers. Add some coaches coming over the past few years. I mean look at last year. Joey Porter wasn't welcome back They haven't been firing them. They always use the old weller contract. Expired heard stuff like that. The Bruce -tarian retirement the asko which we can all remember that I think there's at least going to be one change. I'm not sure who that will be. But and I don't think I agree with Dave is not going to be major but I think there's going to be at least one change and the coaching staff. I'm not sure who that is. They haven't gotten rid of Danny Smith and yet they're not going to and we've talked at nauseam about Randy Feeder Keith. Others contract is up. Maybe he decided he doesn't WanNa come back or are they going to redefine coach Sherman as something else and have a new wide receivers coach wide receivers coach until he had to step up to exactly exactly. So is he still the interim tag. There's going to be some change a little bit dave to go with your around the horn segment. Well then out. I'll take what Brian alluded to just. Because it's easy that we had another announcement of hall of fame I guess it would be semi-finalist or guest In order to before they do the last cut down the day before the Super Bowl and of the sensor doing special twenty class at twenty twenty they will have their five players and of those I think was at fifteen that were selected. I'm pretty sure that will be five. Out of the fifteen with two steelers. They'll no they'll do for actual thing. But the the the regular players seventy was fifteen which included first-year eligible legible Troy Paulo Malou and fifth year Allen Annika but did not include. One hines ward. who was a who was a semi-finalist last year was he has but This is the finalists will never reach the finalist echelon has not he yes in a semi-finalist as as far ars he's gotten finalists. Basically Yeah Yeah. I can't remember how classified if these are so I- finalists. There are two finalists finalists. Or do they call the finalist inductors. Or do they go duck ds or give confusing with how they say the word you have finalised and then you have your class of twenty twenty. The people that are going to be inducted said this is this this is the spot were Alan. Fantasy has been here now for five straight years and has has been denied every single time. I cannot fathom how they left off last year and it will be interesting to see if he gets in this year. Because I think this year's crop of of players everyone does the numbers. I know. Brian is talking about what they look at all the different players. And he's worthy to be the first player First Dalit getting guys and who's not and would all this stuff so you know what. He failed the swimsuit competition. But the the biggest problem with Alan Fanta is the fact that he has to do. He'll Steve Hutchinson which I actually think that Alan is a better player. A better option in hall in the Hall of fame balloting. Then Steve Hutchinson the problem with that though is if one goes the others not going so if here's the thing if fantasy does not go this year you're hoping you're hoping that Hutchinson goes just to get him off of there so he's he's complete you. Hope he goes in so that that paves the way for fantasy has a hall of fame player. Absolutely I think anyone watched him play would say any nine pro bowl six time first team all pro. I mean that's he. He had. He had better sure he had a better resume. Then one of the players that made it last year as offensive lineman. I don't understand why he didn't make it last year. So awesome politics man politics advice. Yeah right now. The steelers are pumping up Donnie. Shell to be in that to that. What is it what are they calling it this legacy class? And they're putting in ten of them. He's the bear best name out of all of those does he if he doesn't get him with this class there's a lot of people that think there's no chance he gets in. This is opportunity. This is it in which which really bums me out. Because Elsie Greenwood yes. He's better than fifteen of the guys that they had on the list. But they just go to include steeler era which is ridiculous. Well that's what I was going to bring up as part of around the horn segments of tea back. Dave is everyone's pumping up Donnie shell which rightfully so he deserves to be in. But what about guys like L. C. Greenwood also worthy. I mean I don't I don't the steelers can say we're GONNA pump up Donnie Shell and thankfully he's still living. But Elsie Greenwood. Who since passed away? We're we're not gonNA talk about him. We're not gonNA have a twitter clips of Mel Blunt talking about worth. Where's the twitter video of you know? Mean Joe Greene Talkin Talkin about L C Greenwood and playing alongside him on the steel curtain And you guys just touched on that because yeah he is all more. But here's my question. Simple question question and I want you to be honest. It is difficult to take your black and gold glasses off. When I asked this question in I just want an honest honest to goodness answer? It is hines ward. Ever going to get into the hall of fame okay. Brian will start with you if he does. It's a veterans Veterans Committee. It will be thirty years down the road or twenty five years down the road okay. I'm not going to say what I think just yet dave. What about you if I take off my black and gold glasses the answer has to be no if I leave them on? I'm going to say yes. But by taking them out nope by taking them off because he was loved by so many steeler fans but he was hated by so many by basically everybody else so therefore I think that's going to. I mean he didn't have the fantastic numbers that some of these dads that's the key because hatred and stuff doesn't matter trello gut in not was hated by everyone unless he was on your specific team and Hines Ward. Played The game the right way. Some people thought he was a little dirty had a little chip on a shoulder. All the time in steeler fans trust me. I can only think of a handful of players in my lifetime that have had a rabid following like hines ward and it as they call it at Heinz field. The psycho-ward people loved love and still do. Love Hines Ward Hines Ward could be the mayor of of Pittsburgh still or come close to winning it and is just that he doesn't have. Those are those eye-popping numbers to back backup some of the other stuff that he does. He has a rule named after him. You know with the crack back block. He was a super bowl. MVP He won two super bowls. Those are all great great. But if he were to have those eye-popping stats and you will get some of the receivers that aren't in that have better statistics in some would say were better. Receivers than Hines Ward. It just makes it that much more. Daunting I agree with Brian if he gets in. It's not going to be on the regular old ballot Alad. It's going to be as what is that called again Ryan. The Veterans Committee Veterans Committee Correo area. So if you're in a live chat in any I wanna know what you think about that. I WANNA enough. You think that hines ward. Not should he be in any steeler fans going to say that he should but if you're being honest with yourself will he get in. I one of them in there. Well we all want him in there and I know I know but you missed my but my big but that was coming but I just don't think it's going to happen because it's GONNA come down to year year in and year out is they're going to be one wide receiver that's eligible. That's better than him and and has the has the better numbers. That's what you're welcome now too because there wasn't this year was this year Bruce. He make the finalist finalists. Here hold on yet like to see that list One Person Jeff that we didn't talk about in this whole thing thing or two to steal coaches that are that could be among the six. But it's a very big it's a it's a very prestigious list and that would be bill cower and Buddy Parker yes there on the list for the.

"Also from bt SC. Tony how are you I am doing well. Brian how are you. How was your trip back? I tell you what Tony Is. What Tony's doing right now is he is referring to the fact that I made my inaugural inaugural trip to my inaugural two thousand nineteen trip to Heinz field? Yesterday and I went with Dave Scofield met up with Tony Jeffey so for the first time we first time we ever met in person it was like you could hear like we are the world and the speakers around as we embraced for the first time and Literally kidding I'm like Tony. I'm giving you a hug. I'm so glad But Yeah I got home at five fifteen this morning because as you know I do look in. I do live in Maryland. So I'm a I'm a little Bush but feeling good and I'm going to bring this up here to that. Nine hundred and sixty three says bad. You look good for getting home so late. I appreciate that and I got a mentioned and Mr Nap. Nine hundred sixty three a good fan of the show David. I had a chance to hang out with he and his family and his friends in the Great Hall. Aw and it was an absolute pressure pleasure. It is so nice to meet more Pittsburgh steeler fans and France in our BTC group We hope hope to do it again. We hope to do it again next year to as well of stared at a love. This bad looks awful. Cold hold arriving that the game. I had seven layers and then he drove home in the snow. And I look at Dave Scofield. I said look I gotta pull all over I gotta get some of these layers off because wedding So here's the deal. We're talking about a hangover and we talk talk about that game. Did Not go the way that we wanted. And Maximum McCormick is asking for this bad. I need a pick-me-up me up king. And that's what we're here for because we are your steeler support group and that's that's very important thing for for us to be together and celebrate and revel when we win and when we lose go ahead and take care of each other as well. Oh so that's what we're GONNA do today. We're GONNA talk about this game we're GonNa talk about the state of the steelers going forward. I promise you Maxwell Oh I'm GONNA pick you up pick all of us up and let you know what we're looking at going forward because hey this is a bump in the road of very weird and unique season and we've seen seasons like this and one thing I'm going to say about this season so far is it is completely against the script. We we had no idea whatsoever that we were going to be talking about guys. Like de la Hodges in white and even deontay Johnson at this point. We thought we were talking about Ben Rothlisberger James Connor and Juju Smith Schuster. So that's that's really what we're looking at so there's so many things to talk about but I wanNA talk about once again support of the show. And how do you support us. She asked us all all the time. Well we can support us by going joining the live chat and just talking to us if you want to go ahead and throw in some money in the super chat. It goes and pays for or stuff like microphones. which were we're not getting? I haven't gotten mine yet. But the other fellas have it's it goes to go ahead and pay for contest test which we just gave away. David decastro football as well But also gets you to the front of the line with your question and we'll go ahead and answer your questions a little litter on in the show. But the best way to support us is go ahead and Lance Williams always says tune in and tell a friend and subscribe. And so we just ask you to go ahead and subscribe ringing that Bell so you get notifications and like this podcast. Ask others forty-five on here right. Now Give us thirty five likes in. Let's get going but here's the thing the big thing is we're we're here to talk about the steelers and what we need to do to go ahead and go forward. Hey this season is not over Tony. Let me ask you this us with two games to go or the Pittsburgh steelers currently if the season ended today or they play off team. Yeah yeah they're they're still a number sixty day really damage their Their playoff chances. That all that much by Losing yesterday but it was a sad reality. They can't make those kinds of station and beat anybody so hopefully. It was a wakeup call for them. So Eric Could Jason this. She says time to beat up on the jets. And so that's what that's what we're going to go ahead and look at we're GONNA look forward. We're going to get through what happened yesterday. I and the question is right now. This is a playoff team. Got Some gifts yesterday from from other teams and some of the gifts that we received were the Tennessee. Titans losing at home to the Houston Texans who they played again in week week. Seven the Jacksonville. Jaguars went to Oakland. And beat the raiders which that means they're pretty much out Arizona cardinals. BEAT THE CLEVELAND Browns. So they're out not that they were a big threat but these guys are out now. So you're really looking in a seven teams trying to get into a sixteen field. Adam Lewis is the titans are favored more than fifty percent to go ahead and make it over the steelers lers now so this is where it gets a little tricky. And I'm going to ask for some help on this as well but two games left for the Pittsburgh steelers. You GotTa Win Those Games. Don't if you win those games you're in November so there's nothing keeping them out if they if they win out there in so let's talk about the steelers I and when we're talking about the steelers were saying they've got to go to New York and beat the jets or Jersey meadowlands. I'm not there's no call the meadowlands. It's met Life Stadium. I understand that but it's still in that area and Then we've got to go ahead and talk about what the titans have to do. Now if the titans lose next week against the saints at home it's not over because ause they would have to really really if they win that game next week. That's that's not a not a big deal as much as they've gotta lose against the Texans they've gotTA lose another conference game so that's where it gets really weird so steelers. They went out there in so they control their own destiny. I need this time. But here's the problem. And it's also the title of the show. Is the offense of the Pittsburgh steelers playoff-caliber playoff-caliber or they postseason worthy. And that's the problem. They showed some flaws like a it provoked thoughts. That's like this duck showed some flaws yesterday but if they game plan to what he can do well and he doesn't force beat ball we can win. OC OC has to game plan running the ball at least sixty five percent of the time and I believe I saw something up here from Michael Tool and he he is right to. We lost because we ran fifteen times for fifty yards and the bills ran thirty eight times for one hundred and thirty bills play late. We have been playing in feet and put the Game Indus- hands and we all see the result. That was a horrible game plan yesterday. This does not now. This does not take take the take the onus off of Devon Hodge Devlin Hodges had a bad game. But here's the problem. It's like this. Listen war it's like this any game you play if you get tipped off on something and you know something's coming you and you can predict it. You can stop it. The bills were tipped off on everything. Because the Pittsburgh steelers Randy feeder. They tip off everything. When you see Zach banner and Johnny Houghton Come in the game? You know it's not going to be a pass. Yes you know what's going to be a run in when you go run. Run Pass Credit Dave scofield because Dave has been harping on this for a long time. Now when you see banner come in you pretty much know that it's going to be a run so you're telegraphing everything. When you see that wildcat come in here I'm not staying being scrapped? The wildcat and put it away forever. But what I'm saying is you've got to go ahead and bring in one time in the third quarter when when you're already you already have a game plan established so it was really weird Isaac Aguilera puts five dollars into the tip charts. How do you dress five running backs and running fifteen times? They set up. Tuck for failure. Look look they did like. I said it still doesn't excuse. Ducks play but they knew he was passing in those situations allegations and they can just sit back and wait for it and he is you and I made this. I don't want to call it an excuse but I made this case for Mason Rudolph to when he was playing. Would you know what he's doing. And you have a young player that is still waiting to go ahead and get established. You know. It's a lot easier to go ahead and predict what he's doing and to be able to stop them so when you go ahead and put him him in a situation where you. You've got a young player that I mean with the pedigree of with the lack of pedigree really at this point line of then. You know that you're going to be able to stop Michael o'malley says this and he is absolutely correct. Five Live turnovers and lost by seven. The D. is legit. Need the offense to mature. Tony let me ask you this. Let's go ahead and take a look at the offense and we've already talked about game plan and I know you agree that the game plan was ridiculous. The I know you agree that they need to run the ball more and we agree that Devlin Hodges charges whoever's put in that position whether it be Mason Rudolph whether it be Paxton Lynch and let's not be pining Paxton. Let's be looking for a change right now. Now but let's go ahead and talk about that offense who's the biggest problem on this offense or what part of this offense is the biggest problem. I just think it's it's a injuries number one but then but to your point about the game plan a and you got your your your horse running back back yesterday James Connor back and and you only two as Mike o'malley said you only run fifteen times the whole game ain't it doesn't make any sense. The game plan defied all logic. So I I'm GonNa say I'm GonNa say injuries are the biggest factor but but your your offense coordinator and and I don't like the Tyrrell against the coaches especially fichtner this year with all the problems he's had to deal with but it just defied logic to you're going against an elite pass defense with an elite cornerback. trae white and you throw thirty eight times and you run it only fifteen times. It just did not make any sense so I say right now. Number one is injuries and number two would be the for sure. I love how Dennis Ceratin says is turned four string rookie quarterbacks who are not up to NFL varsity play yet. That's kind of what the problem is here. A lot of people are saying this we we just we just saw it. I didn't read it but we saw it from nap. And Adam saying lot of eight-man boxes in the last game I would have really liked to see audibles from the duck. That's that's interesting interesting as well to..

"It's year six or seven hundred l Joining me as always is my boy Lance Williams lands. I just wanted to say that somebody and I don't know if the live chat I I get every comment on our youtube channel said to me e mail and I've look over. Everything similar went back and found our very first youtube video. I had I had longer hair you refuse to have your face be shown was just like yours. Yes yes yes remember. What did awesome? Wouldn't show my face to we had a thousand subscribers. Yeah and here we are. We're on the verge of five. Hey in two thousand seventeen. And he's gotten better. Yes I would not. Yeah I remember that I just had an emblem upfront mother-in-law's at the titles awful you you don't you just said that in the first few minutes of this I'm GONNA so they don't listen. No no all all right. Let's go back and check the tape speaking of something in your head though. Let's say you got some Duck Dynasty at all Lynn on duck. I got the campus. You see them trying get it right. I got the kind of dim in my background but I got the CAMMO hat. Get the fresh camel lid. I'm all in on Duck Dynasty Baby Duck. Doc I trust Greg crack and crack lack. All right It's an exciting time for the Pittsburgh steelers in to be a fan of the steelers dealers. Such a crazy season. It's been a lot of fun I WanNa ask you a question before we get to the Arizona thoughts and this is something that Oh i wanted to talk about. I actually actually did a do articles for every ton of articles for binding so curtain dot com. But I did one I. It's called the steelers think tank in. It's basically I think of a question. I think it'd be cool for people people to discuss it and so I read an article around it. Then they have the comments action to hash it out and the other one I did yesterday. Tuesday had a lot of comments. Probably seventy comments. It's by when all is said and done. And here's the question lance if the steelers don't make the playoffs how do you view two two thousand nineteen the two thousand nineteen season in general that. That's a very interesting question and I'm going to answer it the way I see most people answering and then I'm going to give you my answer. I think most steeler fans are going to see it as a positive given the circumstance I think most dealer fans say it's a positive given the circumstances given the fact that they're playing who a guy who was essentially Salihi their fourth string quarterback. They're starting quarterback is a dash. Yeah that just happened to have a nickname. So his name could be duck dash just legitimately so I think most fans would see it as a success. They thought the season would be you know foreign twelve. I probably said for twelve twelve. Show three hundred thirteen after being got hurt it. was you know. Jump off the bridge. One of the numerous bridge in Pittsburgh to Clementi Bridge any bridge. You WanNa choose asked what I think. The fan base was thinking but I think the fan base is going to be positive about this season because of of the turmoil that they've gone through with the quarterback position. I think they'll see the season as a positive now. Think that's one way you could look at it however I choose to frame it in the Lynn's of championships because I'm the ultimate spoilt steeler fan because I'm of the age where I was alive when they got all six right. I mean a from Pittsburgh side. I've lived through all six of those things and I I pretty much can only look at the season through one lens. Either you win it or you don't and so if they don't go to the playoffs they they don't compete for a championship for me. It's a disappointing Caesar regardless of the circumstances but I think a majority of the fan base will see the season. There's a positive in a surprisingly the article that I wrote. I checked in on the comments. And things like that and shockingly. Most of the people were like so you said positive but at the same time I still think a lot of those people still view the steelers as sitting in prime position to make the playoffs. And so I think in the back of their mind. Hi there expecting that playoff berth. But if it doesn't happen I think that the tune might change But when you look at the grand spectrum of this season and as you mentioned all the stuff that went down my goodness it's remarkable that they're even in this position right now. Let alone on the verge of a potential playoff berth. So I just studies really interesting. I wanted to get your take on that Well let me add something Jeff Jeff and we were gonNA talk about it later show but I figured we'd talk about it now. We we gotta give some Kudos to Kevin Colbert and the coaching staff for one developing players. Ever Kevin Colbert identifying players like karat white like Superman Dean. Cain like identifying guys like that off the waiver wire off of other teams practice squads and not only identifying talented guys but the coaching staff didn't getting those guys ready to make contributions on Sunday and we've seen contributions from both those players so I don't know if I talk talk about it and you guys might on other shows I don't I don't give Kevin Cobra his just do and I and I think Kevin Colbert is one of the best in the business and I think it shows unless even extended to you know him. Getting out of his comfort zone is going to get fitzpatrick. So a lot of this stuff that Kevin Colbert has done this year. Here put the Pittsburgh steelers in position to really go after this playoff spot so You know in this Christmas holiday season I want to give a big shoutout to Kevin Cobra for doing a fantastic job might be one of the last few years that he's around here so it's about time that he gets since just do you know it's it's it's great. He say that and I I xe a kind of brought it up A few times when talking about free agent acquisitions there's people like You Know Ed Bouchette of the athletic. I'm not a fan of who you know. bashes their decision making off the field as Oh another you know looking at a book kid with dairy screen screen. Look at Morgan. Burnett look at I can't remember Dante Moncrieff. All these failed free agent acquisitions and it's like well. Are you forgetting getting Steven Nelson. He's he's panned out or you forgetting about bringing in a guy like Mike Hilton. He's paying now. I mean we as a society I understand tend to glean lean and lean towards the negative but I always say you've people's occupant. Yeah Hey talk bad about me and you couldn't hater helmer you have these. There's even People Lina this. I've said this when they traded the first draft pick for Mega Fitzpatrick. I said the steelers weren't that good of drafting the version anyways. Because you will get already Burns Cottrell Edmund. To a lot of people think could have been in there around two maybe three but at the same time people also and if you're in the live chat and you're in the comments section of behind the curtain to come I read these comments myself. You could go back and review articles when they drafted TJ Wa in the first round. There were a lot of people thought it was a reach. I am not making that up. Because a lot of people thought at the time he hadn't played defense his whole collegiate career he was very rough around the edges. He was very. We both do pre lake and the fact that he was a combine superstar in the combine. Really pro push up his drastic. There were people that said They were upset that they didn't get David to joke. WHO's now at the Cleveland Browns? He's never able to play because he's always hurt. There were people that bash them because they thought TJ while was re sometimes. They know what they're doing and no one not even the ma- genius the mad cheater. We'll talk about that. Later of of a New England hits hits on all cylinders all the time. Think about people that they've signed that haven't panned out in free agency. Think about these draft picks that don't pan out trust me people it's it's an in in perv imperfect science but several. GM's in several coaches have done it well enough for the long haul Colbert's one Tomlin's another be happy be happy because when he's gone might be different. Yes it could be so okay. Kudos to Kevin Colbert will leave it at that. Now let's talk about the Arizona Game Lance. We always like to go back before we move forward and we talk about the steelers won Arizona. We talked at length about that in our post game shows. Go back and check that out on a youtube channel as well as in audio platforms it after having a chance to watch the film and I know you did. What were some of the takeaways from that game a week fourteen? They played a very solid game In in all phases they got the special teams touchdown. I thought they ran the ball effectively in spots. What's I thought? Devlin Hodges played his best game I think he took care of the football. He made sound decisions. They have morphed into and we're going to talk about it. You know on the show later to what their identity is as a football team and I think they played too that there were some mistakes there of course they continue the turnover street to get to an NFL historical record number of twenty historically. I think it's I think it is a record I think. NFL NFL record twenty consecutive games. I'm sure if I'm wrong. Somebody in the live chat will pointed out. But there's one number that I wanted to point out It's the number one hundred hundred thirty five. I meant to say it on our post gain Devlin. Doug Hodges had a hundred and thirty five net yards passing. And you know I always want to give numbers to you. Know the CO EDITOR OF BEHIND STEEL CURTAIN DOT COM Dave Scofield does to outstanding Stagich Geek. Show with his brother rich. I wanted to give him that number and I and I challenged him to find out. What is the win? Loss record for. Teams Games with their quarterback has a net passing yards of under a hundred and fifty it. You can't win a bunch of games throwing for under a hundred and thirty about one hundred thirty five yards. So that's just a Kudos to how well that defense is playing but at some point in time as as they move forward you know that net passing yards. You know it's going to have to go up a little bit. He's going to have to make a few more plays but as we as it is now. They're playing linked to what I think. Their identity is in their winning football games. You always say I mean when you win. It's tough you win and correct correct but at the same time. It's tough to really criticize when they're winning. These games this way. Is it sustainable. That's the ultimate question. That's insane aboard. Title one hundred thirty five yards net passing. I mean that is I mean. That's well but let's be honest what we're really talking about isn't net passing talking. Yeah I can defense play well enough to keep them in the game where one hundred thirty five net passing are good enough to win it correct. I mean that's that's that's what you're putting it up against. Can they keep the Games close enough to where the quarterback in the offense can make limited plays a limited amount of place. Yeah it and that's that's what they're going to have to do. Oh.

"The Pittsburgh Steelers he is the toast of every locker room in this league for his he went in there and he laid it on miles Garrett he has been suspended three games himself for his actions in coming to the aid and defense of his quarterback folks this was so bad if this had happened on the street if somebody had been beaten with a weapon of the size and weight of an NFL helmet that person would be in jail there are others who are urging the Steelers to file criminal charges against the Browns it is said that Mason Rudolph's agent is considering criminal charges against miles Garrett number ninety five of the Cleveland Browns it was so bad I was fully expecting when I watch the video does full expecting to see police officers on that field to break this up yeah every NFL team has security if you've paid any attention and they they wear either yellow wind breakers are usually yellow and they surround the field and they are there they never watch the game their eyes are constantly on the crowd they are there to make sure that the crowd doesn't storm the field or the crowd doesn't throwing start throwing things weapons or whatever they might have I fully expect the security staff at that end zone to come out and get in the melee but but they didn't I am the referee is lost control of the game because it was filled with questionable here that were unnecessary throughout the game and as I say yet rivalry Steelers rounds with these players there but nothing was on the line in this game neither of these teams is going anywhere in this season so it's inexplicable and I would love to know what's up miles going off this is not common I would love to know what happened Garrett has not set and what it was all he said is the usual that's not who I don't know it's not who are was will never happen again blah blah blah something set him off something had to happen I don't know if Rudolph sends something I don't know if the scrum that happen before this that Rudolph and tried to get Garrett's helmet in his hand something happened and I would really love to know what it is because I think knowing that will explain what had because it's not rivalry isn't the game was over and the Browns had no there was no chance of going to lose the game there was no way that was given was literally no reason for this there had not been any action by the Steelers during the game the cause pent up frustration and reciprocity if anything it had been the Browns who had been behaving during the game that would warrant the Steelers doing something in retaliatory mission like this so it's really curious to me what happened and something happens something set Garrett off something I'm I have to Janice Steelers fan but ever since I saw the Browns run hard knocks on HBO I think was last season and I have the Browns have become my second favorite team I have really been hoping that they would do well and I have the guy really did fox I have the highest hopes are for any kitchen I hope the guy who had never done it before could come in and do the job I really hope that a guy who had never been a head coach before could come in and build on the successes of last year but it hasn't happened the Browns of underperform they've come no where near meeting expectations I'm not even talking about the pre season the preseason hype was when they traded for Odell Beckham I mean that's when everybody lost all my god this team center for the Superbowl and they haven't performed anywhere near a super plant from anywhere near their potential this year yeah I read some of the craziest stupidest play calling on the ends on thank handle a Reds on a federal lousy red zone performance they've got the potential for an unstoppable offense and it never has materialized and maybe that some of the frustration but they were winning this game was never played the game was in the band it was over so the NFL suspended miles Garrett minimum the rest of the sea I think the Browns need to cut it they cut a player yesterday Antonio Callaway who was a rookie last year he was arrested for marijuana possession last year during the preseason they stuck with him they gave him a chance Sir a little bit of suspension came back had a halfway decent year last year then he started showing up late for games this year and missing meetings they sing them that he's got a ten game suspension the league announced a ten game suspension for substance abuse or obviously found his way back to the weed and the Browns cutting before the game yesterday they've got a lot of wide receivers they can cut and tell me Callaway if they're gonna cut Callaway for being late and for having problems substance abuse them I don't know how they don't cut miles Garrett something's gonna happen here because you should have seen the tweet of NFL players watching the game to a man not of a move ever seen anything like it and so I yeah it does it is it is it a trend is it an indication of where the leak is going it's I don't know that's why I would really like to know what sparked this I'll rise it was a series of things that happened during the course of the game and it all just kind of blew up with one's final stroke of a pen or non on now there's got to be something more than just a simple progression of perceived injustices during the game there's much more to this than that you go back to this old adage of coaching you either culture or yell let it happen and the brown is one of their big problems has been a total lack of discipline on the field and they've been allowed to get away with it so there has to be something here that because this and they'd better find if the if we never told what it is they better find out what it was because I don't think it's about my my guess is it's not something just specific to this game I hope that's all I hope I'm wrong about that but I you know I I I wouldn't I wouldn't have a problem with a lifetime ban they have got to make sure this is not the big getting of any kind of trend this has to be shut down and there can be no doubt about the intolerance they've already got a problem in this game with perceptions on the part of fans about what's going on out there in the field so they've they've got a they've got to get a handle on this and quickly quick time out will continue with much more right after the.
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Bolts from the Blue
"Was out with a back injury linebacker Budde. Do pre was out of the pectoral injury backup guard BJ Finney was out for a personal reason. I guess a lot like me bane. He didn't practice on Wednesday. Either the tackle Marcus Gilbert did not practice with a knee injury. That'll be big. We'll talk about his backup coming up later and the Tynan van. Mcdonald was out with a hip injury. He did not practice on Wednesday either. Now moving on to this Pittsburgh Steelers offense, and this is an explosive offense. They've got some considerable weapons all over the field. And we'll start with quarterback Ben Rothlisberger. Now as charger fans we've seen Big Ben a lot over the years. We know that he can extend to play. He's real tough QB to bring down that's all a given. So the chargers pass rushers will have to wrap up make sure to bring him down. Because when he slips a tackle that is win. Ben is at his most dangerous. Let's talk about how Ben has played this season. Pittsburgh loves the throw the ball because Big Ben has those weapons. In fact, Rothlisberger leads the league and pass attempts. This season Steelers have won seven game. So it's not like that's one of those standards inflated where he got a throw to catch up in games. They've been up they've been a lot. So Pittsburgh just leans on their aerial salt on Sundays while. Leading the league in attempts. Ross burgers completion percentage is eighteenth overall among quarterbacks he's also thrown twenty four touchdown passes, which is eighth among QB's Philip rivers fifth in that category. He's got twenty six TD passes compare Rothlisberger twenty four touchdowns to his twelve interceptions which is tied for second. Most in the NFL Big Ben has fifty five interceptions in fifty two regular season game since two thousand fifteen he's one of five quarterbacks that have at least fifty interceptions during that span. And I bet you guess who one of the other five is Philip rivers. He's thrown fifty picks in fifty nine games. So let's five less interceptions in seven more games. Compared to Big Ben in two thousand eighteen Rothlisberger has the most poor throws in the league. According to the QB incompletion breakdown. His biggest struggles this year has been in the red zone. Rothlisberger has the third worst passer rating in the. NFL in the red zone with a seventy one point four passer rating. In fact, it was an interception the red zone that causes to the game last week in Denver and he leads the league with four red zone interceptions this past weekend. Ben Rothlisberger criticized some of his teammates and on Wednesday. He doubled down saying leaders have to call out teammates. And on that span. He said Antonio Brown run his route flat enough on the goal line interception. The cost them the game. Last sunday. He said juju should have got the ball in that play. He disapproved of marquees pounces blocking on that. Same play for blocking the nose tackle too deep into the end zone. That seems like if you're driving a defender the opposite way away from the quarterback. That's usually a good thing. But I guess that's just me. He also called out rookie receiver James Washington for diving for a ball where bent on he could just run under it and catch it. He said a cost them six points in the third quarter. No, obviously that type of motivation when you go through the media to call out players, usually. Was one of two ways it'll fire guys up or it begins a meltdown strife in the locker room. We'll see how Pittsburgh responds this Sunday. But we know that they can throw it their explosive offense. But when you get him in the red zone shrink that field down a little bit. That's when Big Ben gets a little careless with the football. And the chargers in the zone have done pretty good..
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"It was Bengal weeks and you know what thing go week means, even though there's a possibility of a win. There's also a possibility of complete destruction to your entire team. Hello friends. Once again, it is time for the Steeler hangover, and so that's a hangover. It's just because of great showy and Steeler nation with the Pittsburgh Steelers winning a thriller in the cincy jungle twenty eight to twenty one in the Queen city, and the kings are hailing from Pittsburgh at this certain time, even though they are only a half game back of the Bengals. Is it at turn upwards or has the defense turn so bad that it's gonna be tough going through with? That's one of the things we're gonna discuss, but we're going to discuss the great joy of that victory and discussing that with me once again is my good friend, Tony deaf, yo from behind the steel. Curtain, Tony. What do you think my man feeling groovy? Oh, yeah. How you doing Brian good to be with you as always feeling great. Probably one of my favorite teams wins. Got one of the craziest games and the most satisfying because it's Cincinnati is I don't know about you and this is something we can discuss, but for me and I live in Maryland. So I'm a guy that lives in Maryland. I a hor- the Bank, the ravens. But since the Bengals have gone to fuck city in the last ten years or so under or maybe the last fifteen with the more Lewis era. I don't know what all I know is that I can honestly say that I despise Cincinnati Bengals more than I do the Baltimore Ravens. I don't know if you feel that way. So for me, Tony, this is so satisfying what? What's your thoughts on that? Well, I think my my hatred for the ravens is a little bit deeper because they just give Steelers hard time and I don't like John Harbaugh. Hey, yet the ravens. The Bengals are definitely Ashim. I respect less than the reason that's for sure. And they do a lot of talking. They do a lot of. Dirty players, but they just don't get. They don't get the job done on on the field, especially against feelers. And you know, at this point I'm thinking Pittsburgh should be paying the Bengals rent because or at least half a mortgage because they might as well move Paul Brown stadium at the magic. They against that team, they're just I've never seen anything like it how they continue to win games in such a magical fashion at another teams stadium brain. So I'm feeling pretty good. Maybe because of that, we should call Ben Rothlisberger the landlord of PBS. What do you think? Man. I wish everyone thought of that, but I like it. What you're you. Go ahead and write it. That's yours. I, I'm you give me credit if you want, but let's just say that's property Steelers hangover, so we could both use it. Like I said, like sometimes we, we share the same brain. So there you go the landlord of Paul Brown stadium. I love it and I love what they're doing.
