"You can listen to it on your time. Got another email from a listener whose name escapes me at the moment I have to look it up. He mentioned that he and a group of workers who worked the overnight they each listen to the podcast that overnight in the show and on break at the plant they work at they debate the topics that is very cool made my day when I read that that's what the podcast is all about the opportunity to listen to it on your time. Yet the extra inning show or sports talk or individual interviews, you go back and listen to Willie Anderson. If you missed it moments ago Bengal Jim Foster if you missed it moments ago, or you could be listening live from other parts like Joe Reedy, one of our favorite Bengals writers of all time Now AP writer who checked in and said Hey, affair, Always great to hear from Joe Reedy had a blast talking with Joe. Over the years. Let's wrap up the Bengals conversation on the heels of jungle to the hall event. So today, pro football focus ranks the wide receiver cores in the NFL one through 32. Where do you think they put the Bengals wide receiver corps on a scale of 1 to 32 number? 12. Number 12 Jamaar chased a against Tyler Boyd writing this Profootballfocus. Having chasing Hagen's takes the pressure off boy who has become one of the league's most dependable receivers. Auden, Tate returns as a contested catch specialist. The receiving corps is strong, but tight end has few legitimate reason receiving threats on the team. They were good for 29th in the league in terms of a receiving great at that position last year, Profootballfocus points out drew sample and see Jay Oussama sample leading the way of 40 catches 349 yards. They conclude the Bengals have an excellent group of receivers, but they could use a better threat it tight end around out there Group of pass Catchers C J is feeling good 100% coming off the Achilles injury a year ago, drew sample will be another year. Wiser and older. Look, Ultimately it's a It's a team that I think last year used used. The tight end finished 29th out of 32 teams. It's not a don't say It's not a high priority, but it is down in the pecking order. And I think if If they hold true to the word of Brian Callahan, Joe Mixon will become more of a threat this year and not come off the field. I don't think it's a stretch to say if Joe Mixon is on the field on a more regular basis that joke and have 50 to 55 catches out of the backfield. And then you're you start adding it up and you're figuring out you know how many footballs other and how much were you actually going to use the tight end? I was struck by something, Tyler Boyd said yesterday. Oh th s week number two. I want to run a two minute drill with Tyler Boyd. Here is Tyler on the issue of the wide receiver group and specifically starting with The vibe and kind of the impact early of the arrival of Jamaar Chase kind of the difference with him ages kind of. It's not a big difference, but I feel he's more versatile player like he can do jet sweeps. You could probably lined up in the backfield. He could do things like that, you know, toe utilize his abilities. Lot of in different positions, you know, not saying AJ wasn't going up, but I think we got a lot more ballots and can just call anything that we ain't gotta worry worry about guys being in certain spots. Have you noticed? Increased in the arm? Strength of job are absolutely you know, every like, like earlier T he had you out the first ball because that that those smoking them they come in, you know, so we gotta anticipate that Joe got Stronger Lester as well, You know, so hand without this thing a little bit, but we gotta adjust to it. So I mean, we receivers. We gotta catch anything that's thrown us. You're kind of embraced and leadership role the last few seasons. Why does being a leader so important to you? Because you have to have a solidified God toe. Stay on. Stay on Every guy you know, hold hold them to the same account of the same Standard is myself, you know, So I've been here the longest and I have seen a lot more than guys and I've been through a lot more diversity, you know? So I just got do a great job of making sure guys is one of a game and Don't don't don't lose, like a confidence and just just just be Don't know. I just discovered a place. Is it a little surreal to think that you are the veteran in the wide receiver room is still crazy, because that's a look like I'm a young guy, you know? This is the first year I actually feel like a vet, You know, despite Still having years under my belt last year in two years ago, but I mean, I'm embrace it, and I mean I enjoy it. Tyler Boyd, two minute drill with him Good stuff. I was struck by the initial comment about him, stating that Jamaar Chase is more versatile than AJ Green Woz. Um, certainly at the back end of a J. J's career. Certainly I think that is a is an accurate statement. And I think that will play and pay dividends on what they can do with that trio of wide receivers this year with with Joe Burrow back, all right, let's go back to some conversation. We started early with the I want to call it the cryptic. I just thought it was a very revealing That was a great question by see Trent Rosecrans of the athletic, asking Sonny Gray last night after getting hammered 17 to 3. He asked him where they are as a team. And how did they move forward? And Sonny struggled over a minute to try to answer the question and ultimately could not, and kind of apologize for not being able to answer the question, And that led to our conversation in an attempt to kind of fill in the blanks on what he was struggling to say about This baseball team. Let's go to the phones in on a cell. Mark. Welcome to sports talk. Hey, Lance. Good evening. Good evening. I'm well, Thanks for calling. Well, you know, you know, I think I agree with that pass caller. I think Sonny Gray is frustrated. And I think really, how you fix it. I think first you have to realize and understand how you got to where you're at. Yeah, in. I think First of all, I think the pitching this year has been a huge disappointment. I mean, Look at that. Ti me. All right. What are they 30 out of 30 teams? I mean, you know That that that that that is not going to get fixed overnight. You know, Michael Lorenzen coming back could help you know is he really gonna be I will be going to be after this injury. Is that thing? Hell, I mean, there's so many questions there. I don't even know where to begin. Yeah, I file him under the category of all believe it when I see it that he comes back any pictures this year. Yeah, I mean again. I think the thing that the Reds have to understand that ownership. That's understand. I don't know that they do because I think you have an owner the face and he hears what he wants to hear and ignored good advice when he gets it. Because it doesn't you know he doesn't. He doesn't even understand the game long term that doesn't want to But the bottom line is the Reds. Talent is just not good enough. I mean, period. It's not good enough, and I went back over the weekend, and I looked over the last 10 years of Red's draft. You about picking one through three just to see how many of those guys have actually made it impact on this team. And when you look at that, you can totally understand why you're where you're at. Yes, they have basically the only player that was a top three draft pick that I can think of that I saw out there right now that's making an impact. Is Jesse Winker. That's it? Yeah, and Mark. Unfortunately, if it's going to be part of that part of the pain of a rebuild is supposed to be, you know, helped by drafting high And where. If this organization's going anywhere, it's gonna have to be the Tyler Stevenson's and Hunter Greens and Michelangelo's to their credit. In the last 18 months. They've changed over there, scouting director and some things in the organization But without having a season last year in the minors. We haven't seen the fruits you know, start to bear the fruits, but you're right where they are right now. Those drafts prior to those changes. Really put this organization behind the eight ball. Well, it's sad, but you know it is what it is. And they worst thing they could do right now, I think is bring one of those two pitches with dull ho are hunter green up here to sell some tickets? Yes. Agree. We've seen that play before. Yep. Solid Homer Bailey. Well, Homer billion in Tyler Malli came up and he really wasn't major league ready. You know, one pitch. I think you can look at Luis Castillo and look at some of his problems..

"Look great in person last year and especially week 17 against the Bills team that had nothing to play for. But if you even drill down further, it looked horrible for him last year, But he was really bad in place. Did you expect the quarterback and a conducive offense to do really good, and now they get him? Will fuller they get him? Jalen Waddle? Another year in the system. I think we're the Dolphins have done a great job, too. I told them and similar seem to the bills as far as team building and stuff. It, too, was bad. We'll find out really quickly and if you're good, we'll find out really quickly. I think it's a coin flip. It's Eric, eager from pro football focus he was on Tuesday would show up in the building before we get to your bills. Question. Happy Thursday, everybody, let's get connected with our fans. Brought to you by Bond. Schenkkan King, a full service buffalo law firm. I tweeted out Jan Jace tickets Jeremy and I were talking about, you know, we got Jay's tickets. And so I tweeted out.

When's the next sporting event? You anticipate getting, too, since I would believe I got someone who treated they were at a was in Ohio State Spring football game just last month in Columbus, But I'll get I'm going to guess for most of you were going pre mid March 2020. And who knows how much for the back? So what's the next 40 men? You're gonna get to eight all three old 5 50 to join us. Whatever else is on your mind. You can talk about that. Because yeah, like rope and all sorts of neat stuff. Okay, Now the floor is yours. So yesterday there's a bit of a controversy controversy. Shmahn troversy. Because a profootballfocus writer Anthony Trish, Apparently wrote that he thought How do we kill might be the best deep threat in NFL history. Might be the best deep throat a little history. He's definitely a very good deep threat. I think anybody would dispute that. And the guy didn't say he is, is that he might be And while the NFL world let me tell you You say the wrong thing on a Wednesday in May and you are toast. You could sneak this in on a Saturday afternoon during the season, but Wednesday in May. Goodnight so this guy got plenty responses. Randy Moss was like the number one. How could you forget about Randy Moss? Right? It was all right. You think? Best deep threats. You think Moss? Um anybody else pop to mind for you? I think about this Sean Jackson, whose career has been you know, here and there with injuries. These of course, an incredible deep throat always has been. Tyree kills a good answer for this. Yeah, I don't. I'm trying without trying to say who's the best ever at getting a bombs? Yeah, it's a good question. Threats. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know. One pops into my head right away, to be honest with you other than Moss, And maybe Generation is not a big deep threat because it was more of a West Coast offense, right was more of a shorter timing. Yeah. And they that's the other thing is like Terry Kill. Does everything so I'm seeing comparative yards per reception. Well, I mean, they throw to him over the middle all the time he got, you could catch a wide receiver screen and run 70 yards. Yeah, it's not like he's just down the field, you know, stretching the field every single play. So, whatever, anyway, Um, yesterday showing Bulldog ask the question Who is the best bills deep threat ever given an answer that just pops to mind right away. Wow. Best bills deep threat. My when they asked this yesterday, the first name that popped into my head. It's one of those situations where you immediately think of a name and then say, Well, not gonna say he's the best ever. But that's the first guy I thought of on the deep threat T o First I thought it was marquees Goodwin. Oh, he was so incredible Deep right? Not about tell you he was the best bills deep threat ever. But you say deep threat, my mind flashes two marquees Goodwin. I actually flashed Don Beebe. But that's because I was thinking speed first. I mean, Andre was the greatest receiver have seen, but Andre ran all sorts of routes. Thought BB only because when they got him, it was watch how fast this guy is. He's going to run downfield really fast. Yeah. I mean, he called Leon let you know in the Super Bowl, but yeah, so that was actually but I don't. I couldn't tell you that. That didn't necessarily equate into a lot of catches for Don Beebe, but that's one of the first names I thought of only because of course, there's their deep stop the threats that are just flat out burners. And then there are guys that would win a jump ball. That's down The field like Moss would, of course, do that James Loft in right? James Lofton's a great deep threat because he had the size to go with it, too. Joe mentioned Lee Evans. Who of course was deep threat. Really good, deep threat for the bills. Yeah, And if he had a better quarterback, you know whoever. Heywood had better numbers. Yeah, I haven't Um, just think about molds here molds could I wouldn't say he would be better than that, My guy, But you know what? Because molds could still be multi isn't necessarily the burner, but he's definitely out leaping guys downfield, but the best deep threat with the bills I ever saw. I don't know that would be molds. That's my guy loft in Evans In the time that I was able to watch Eric molds. Bill was great. I mean, he could beat you in any way be, you know, any route. He's got the size. He's got the athleticism and it just seemed like that..

Greg Newsome, fourth best cornerback, according to everyone else, But Profootballfocus said. He really number one and the only thing that I mean the Browns were a complete Super Bowl contending team and I'm not making that up. That's just true. They got to the final eight, then My home's took him out. But now they got more defender that remade their entire secondary, plus Justin Fields going to the bears. The Bears get fields.

"They should trade 23 for Alan Robinson. See, I think I feel like a lot of the MOX I've seen or the majority of the marks. I should say. Have the Jets going defense? It 23 They're getting their quarterback, and they have multiple needs on the defensive side of the ball. You can name a position they can add to it. Cornerback Edge rusher of either one of those would be good ads for the Jets. Um, I would look again at whatever you can add to help your quarterback. They overhauled their offensive line. It still wasn't that good. You could still add another receiver to the group for sure. And again. If it's ah, good crop of receivers, you should still be able to get somebody quality player at 23 so I would meet personally, I would still be thinking offense, but it seems like a lot of people are anticipating. They dress offense first, and then they try and Figure out somebody toe help their defense at 23. I think Miami would go. I think Miami will go receiver. It's six at 18. I suppose they would probably look to bring somebody in on defense, too. And then New England. 15 is the big question, Mark. Honestly, I have no idea what they do at 15. I was told you have a guest The prospect I heard a report of a guest. The prospect do But we would. We would probably want to get the break in. Okay? Because it's 47 right now. I could get you started the day before the break. If you like that, instead and then get the guest. The prospect Stat of the day is brought to you by cows of buffalo. Get moving. With cows. A buffalo container on Wheels. Mobile storage rent account today 59 to 33 43. This stat is more of a great profootballfocus grating a quarterback slash receivers. So Mac Jones Controversial because he had a good college career. But did he have Weapons that were too good. You know if your receivers are too good, that means you're not that good. No. Anyway, Profootballfocus up, said that Mac Jones played with the highest grated group of receivers since 2014. They have grated, so he definitely had all weapons at his disposal, highest grated group of receivers since 2014. So is there going to be When sepsis goes on the board. Is there going to be this discussion of Alabama quarterbacks that have never panned out? I'm just trying to think how deep they go to fill the time before the Niners pick right? Isn't that like Alabama's not exactly known for producing The program is Uh, quarterback you, huh? Let's see if you want to get a job. It's a USC. Right, but good ones.

"They'll be guest host The Dan Patrick Show. I think you're really, really, really like that one. Um Me and Jason McIntyre with you for the next 15 minutes. All right, J Mac, Where did you want to go with the dish on Watson? Take my might like my whole dish on watching takers like, Look, I've always liked you, too. Sean, watching like two in college. Like there's a pro love the fact that he came back from a collapsed lung and took a took a van Toc Jacksonville to win a game for the Texans. I think he's a stud. Dude, I just There's nothing statistically in terms of wins and losses. With an offense that's built around him. They did everything they could possibly done and he's had some bad luck. That shows me that he's at the elite level because at the end of the day yes, his quarterback, you are judged based upon your wins and losses, and there is no discernible difference. Between the Texans before they had to Shawn Watson and since they had to shout Watson, despite all the all the attempts they've made to fix any of their issues. Judged on your wins and losses. Jimmy Garoppolo got 28 million from the 40 Niners. He hadn't won Jack squat with the Patriots so onto Shawn Watson. I know you like pro football focus that the money After he won. What was it last five games when I was five wins, $28 million Stop, Doug. Okay, Let's go toe Profootballfocus, Right. I know you have to expect. You have to accept Extend him but go ahead. Profootballfocus grades every quarterback past. They don't care what the record is. They don't care about the defense. They don't care about special teams. They grade the quarterback passes yes, this season. Number one Aaron Rodgers highest grade. Who they, by the way, where, by the way, Profootballfocus said he had a bad year last year and that his skills were beginning to fade. No, this is just the 1st 1st part of the art first Layer number two. Just home. Watson, number three Tom Brady, number four. Pat Mahomes, five. Russell Wilson. Then Rafa's Burger does not check in until number 26 below. Teddy Bridgewater over the hill. No question. Quarterbacks under pressure this season to Shawn Watson has thrown the fourth. Sorry. Third most touchdown passes under pressure. He has been a clutch quarterback because we know the offensive line stinks. Now let's go to the football outsiders who put out some really good numbers. They currently have to Shawn Watson. As the fifth best quarterback this season. They grade on Lee passes, They don't care. Well, they they great the runs as well by the quarterback. They don't care what JJ Watt in the defense is doing. OK, you get him in a 28. Nothing hold doesn't matter. How is to Shawn Watson performing Right now, Fifth best quarterback, according to the D V o a metric that football outsiders puts out, So when I say to Sean Watson is an incredible quarterback. I don't care how bad the secondary is, and that the linebackers could not. Cup guard defend a cup of warm urine. Okay, That's how bad this Houston, Texas defense is. So let's not blame to Shawn Watson for the four and 11 record. Okay. Okay. You're right. You're right. Therefore, therefore wins. Inept. They don't have a top five pick next year That goes to the Dolphins in the Laramie Tunsil bungled trade. All right, so they're gonna be terrible ago last year. How is it bungled? Don't know. Horrible trade how we're getting me. How is it bungled the part that they messed up was not having a contract right? So then they had to overtake tons and now they don't have a top five pick when there are four windows, but two To trade for a left tackle. When you're trying to protect the Shawn Watson, which has allowed him to perform quite well, it's like, Actually your argument is running counter to what you're saying, right? You said that they messed up the trade for Deandra happens. I think the Entre Hopkins is great. Do I think he's worth his new contract? Probably not. Like the issues that Bill O'Brien had, and Jackie's to be had Whatever were he wouldn't practice right, and I don't actually care. The doesn't practice in Arizona, but it is an issue that people keep bringing up is how many times he's a healthy scratch. Right. Look, the Houston Texans have four wins this year, you know, with those four wins against the awful teams of a city Two against the Jaguars, one against the Lions won against the Patriots. They're a terrible football team that has beaten for the worst teams in the league Do I think it's still a great quarterback? I don't think he's a great quarterback. He's good quarterback. The numbers say he's top five. Let me just add one more comical note here. So when you trade DeAndre Hopkins, you're like, all right. What do we got? We got Who do we got? We could Kenny stills, okay? He's been up and down. All right, all right. We still got Will fuller. Gets hurt every year. Oh, he just got popped for P E. DS will fuller. It's always something with him when we got Brandon cooks. I mean, the guy's a walking concussion he's had, like six of them in the last five years. It's unfortunate. But that's what brain and cooks and what happens This year. He gets hurt. So like when you give away a guy in DeAndre Hopkins, who is very reliable, never misses games. He's always there catches everything. I think he led the league in fewest amount of drops over like a three year span like You making bad decisions That's just know all around. Bad. No one's disputing that I think what they were trying to do was free up money. Once the David Johnson think contract expires so that they could get him a better supporting cast. He just O'Brien's ego. Couldn't get him through What was a really rough start the season because they played Ah, schedule where you're playing before the best teams and leagues to start, Doug. I'm seeing a lot and I tried not to do this. Go on social media and see a lot of People enjoying the back and forth. Essentially, you've taken shots at Shawn Watson, Steph Curry. And you defended Carson Wentz today. I mean, this is this has been a shell again. This is this is business. This is and I love you. But this is what you do You say what you're saying? Is that someone I've said? I've said, too Shall Watson is really good. He's just not only quarterback I said you shouldn't have drafted Jalen hurts because he's not the answer eventually, and I said Steph Curry, who's a first ballot Hall of Famer and a multi time NBA champion, is.

"I said, break on the story there of Muti getting his first play in the National Football League, which you know, you know, the big fellow was way fired up about seeing Seeing him play yesterday. Well and then and then he backed it up, and I haven't gone to see if Profootballfocus gave out their grades, but just listening to the game or certainly watching it, and he's early in the game. He's out, pulling on runs to the left to the right and making his presence felt for a guy that was going against a top 10 pick and Derek Brown. Movie Muti more than held his own and you heard Drew lock praise him. After the game today, when he was on with with Logan and Louis. He talked about the old line play mentioned Calvin Anderson, who had to step in last minute for Garrett Bolles, But you have three new starters I get. Elijah used to be a starter, but three new starters working together to go with the other two young guys in the second year guy riser in a rookie and cushion Barry to give up one sack and the play as well as they did against a good defense. Get the Carolina may not be going to the Super Bowl. Brian Burns was number number 16 overall pick and as good a edge rushers there is and I just mentioned Brown Shack, Thompson and they've got ballers over there on that defense. So yeah, I think The Broncos are gonna have a good problem on their hands, trying to figure out how to get three linemen for Lyman in the three spots, But Muti certainly deserves more playing time after what we saw the other day. Okay, There's been a little bit of pushback. I've been getting a little bit of push back online about what's happening with Phillip Lindsay and his carries. And why hasn't there been more love for him? Well, I'll start off by saying the way that you show people that you love them in the NFL is by paying them any word on whether or not the Broncos have offered a contract to Phillip Lindsay. Have not heard that the only the only name that I heard and our NFL insider from Broncos 100 mentioned all right in our insider segment yesterday that you know I do on the pregame mentioned that the Broncos have already begun discussions with Shelby Harrison would like to get a deal done. We know Justine Simons is a priority. Again for everybody listening. They cannot negotiate with Justine Simons until after the season because he's on the franchise tag. He was actually their priority ahead of bowls, but they can't negotiate with just until the until the year is over. So Shelby Harris is there. Next target if you will to try to get him the sign a deal before the year's over. And maybe sooner than that. Maybe it happens quickly. Is bowls. Did s O to be something to monitor, But I have not heard about anything for Lindsay. As for the way the usage gets broken down, you know, I look at the snap count ever every Monday morning, and obviously I'm up early. I tweeted it out a little later in the day to day. But He was on the field for 29 snaps. Melvin Gordon for 28. You can't be more 50 50 than that. And by my quick math, we know I'm not great at Mass. That's one more play that he was on the field, and Gordon Gordon might be a little banged up Phillips a little banged up But you feel yourself with the operation. By the way, That was that was one is correct. He was on the field for 29 plays, and Gordon, who was 28. It wasn't 29 to 45. So I understand the frustration and I think Phil's as dynamic of guys, They have a lot of like seeing K. J Hammer. Touch the ball a lot. Um, so I don't know what the long term plan is there. But it certainly doesn't seem like to this point. They're ready. Tow tow offer him a deal even similar to the one that Gordon has right now. I don't know what a what a multiyear deal would look like for Philip right now, By the way, a Justine Simons going to join us have 505. Today he is again the NFL Man of the year, a nominee from the Denver Broncos for the second year in a row, and we'll talk about that game yesterday became self. Some comments from true like today, where he talked about the The relationship he has got with his backup, which obviously is a little bit different than the relationship that drew like head with Joe Flacco. But this relationship that he has a Brett rip in, he says, is We're truly helping him mature in this game. Yeah, And it's pretty interesting because they're basically the same age on do they came in together. They became really close in the off season leading in the last year, And then Drew goes, goes down early in the preseason or middle of preseason and Mrs Obviously, those 1st 10 weeks he and ripping became even closer. They came in every morning and every afternoon they were watching practice and going through it on the virtual reality simulator. I think I told you this on air, but I was told by High place Broncos source last year that they could envision Brett rip in being Gary Kubiak to Drew's John Elway. No, that's saying a lot about Drew. Did it really be the guy like John Elway or even close to that, but where you're not even thinking about another quarterback for for a decade? Plus, but they're that close at the same age like I mentioned that They work really well together and rip. It has to be able to play well enough like he did against the Jets. I know the Jets aren't great. Obviously, they're the worst team in football, but he went in to do what you're supposed to do and threw the ball over the yards and picked he wants back. But could they be that? 12 punch that grows together and punch maybe isn't the right word, but just the the complimentary piece that Brett can say anything to drew. And it's going to be the right thing to say to do it the right time and clearly, that's the relationship they have. It was nice to hear, Drew kind of lettuce behind the curtain a little bit on that yesterday. Okay, uh, has to lock down enough from the, uh, from this past football season so far, TOC a cure that the Broncos won't be looking for a new Quarterback next year..

Very turn key for you to make a donation in any dollar amount helps and thank you so very, very much. So Pff Profootballfocus with their midseason all pro honors 3 40. Niners made the list if you had said Before the year started, But this is what it would look like. People would have been like. Ah, What do you talking about? Where's the name? Nick Bosa. You know where? Where's the name? George Kittle. Not on their injuries, of course, taking over and then some surprises. I mean, if he had talked about this before the draft, you wouldn't have even known that Trent Williams was on the 40 Niners. But Trent Is one of the 3 40 Niners to make the list. Fred Warner is the other one. That's the one that's not surprising, or at least if you've watched the Niners this year. You know that's been that's been their best player. He has been the most successful guy at his particular position. The healthiest is well. And then lastly, the great story that just keeps staying great. Jason Moret. Jason Borat, who has always been an all pro talent and just has not been able to stay healthy and then had a cup of coffee with the team last year. When it got in against the Steelers, it was a disaster and immediately was gone again. But credit to Jason for for hanging in there and credit to the 40 Niners for sticking with him and seeing that there might still be something there has been great. It's been fantastic this year. The other thing Pff. It's interesting. There are times where you're like this is too mechanical. This is two numbers based Sam Monsen of Pff, who will join the show on Friday was tweeting about something that Pff Put out there. Earlier today that essentially Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes have been darn close to the same quarterback. This year. People lose their minds lose their minds. Cause they're like one of them wins all their games. The other one doesn't one of them is like winning fantasy games. The other one doesn't What are you talking about? Even the eye test? Well, Pff has zero. Skin in the game. Pff is not using the eye test the field test. We're not doing any of that. They're using actual math and data and what's being put out there? Apparently, Patrick Mahomes has had a lot of dropped interceptions this year. Well, the way pfft I see the light won't Somebody drops the interception. It's still an interception. In terms of Pff grades like if you throw on intercept herbal ball, then that's the same thing like the quarterback has no control over what happens when it leaves his hand. If you throw a right to a defender, that's the same thing whether the defender catches it or not, and I get it. And so apparently, there's some advanced analytics that air like Patrick has not been as good this year as last year. Actually kind of makes sense if you look at some of their games But the reason I like that that means that we can take our eye test and throw it out the back window. And keep in mind what film is actually saying, Remember a few weeks ago, people like what's wrong with Trent Williams? Apparently not much. Apparently not much and look last Thursday night. What the offensive line looks like when he's not there. There was a period of time week for week. Five or people thinking Well, you know what? Don't worry about the finances. We don't want to sign Trent Williams back again next year. Yes, Ugo? Yes, Ugo And oh, by the way, Yes, you do. Okay. Has he been perfect? No. But he's on a new line. Working with new players. He's getting better each week. That makes sense. And Pff has him as a mid season All pro Trump. Williams needs a new contract and it needs to be with the 40 Niners next year. All right off we go to what is today? The national date counter needs a little check in here so that we're celebrating effectively before we go off today, Just.

"We were talking earlier and we felt like there are three players at the Broncos have. That should be a priority, and they probably won't get the money for two of them. And B gambles Justine Simmons and shall be Harris. And of those three old Pff prioritize of two of those three to get signed. Well, Simmons would be one and it would be with a bullet even though the coverage is a little bit from seasonal seasonal but more unstable. Um and you could be kind of peaks and valleys there. Ah, we've seen a decent sample is a really good play. Um Then a little torrent and here's why corn The market for left tackles. The price that left tackles get paid in creating see is really inflated, and it's inflated, just even relative to right tackles and the math bears out that there's really not a big difference in terms of value that they generate. It's kind of an old, you know, all the blind side all this stuff so I don't like paying left tackles. I like paying right tackles and drafting left tackle's Got it. That's a situation where you can win. And you never know what happens with the referee and going forward. You know, maybe they start calling holding a little bit more right? So I I would be tempted to To, you know, let bowl to see. But you know how much you've got into baby levels. Boardwalk, Um and shall be Harris. I think you might be able to get at a little bit of a discount. Left tackles. Supreme position. You see guys getting overpaid. Um, And that hurts me to say because I like their bowls, but that's probably where I'd be right now. Last one here for you and appreciate you giving us a few minutes Now. I was looking at the recap last couple of days that you guys put out the refocused article, which is always kind of fun, because there's a little tidbits here and they're in there and you guys went through the story of the game in it. And you wrote in here that lock faced 35.6% pressure on his drop backs in the first half. For some reason, the Chargers weren't able to do that, as effectively in the second half. Was that the Chargers or was that the Broncos or why he didn't see as much pressure in the second half? Great question, and we see this all the time. And there's a lot of Super Bowls that are dictated by this one involving the Patriots, actually, and when you're behind, you've gotta throw right. You've gotta run place. And what do we know about defensive lineman? Well, they're great in short bursts, but they get tired. And if you can tire them out, you can mitigate a pass rush. If you can get the ball out of your hands quickly, and often, you can really slow down that past Russian. We see The quarterback's really own a lot of their pressure it inside. I would put this as much on the fact that they had to throw the ball on and we're down a bunch but also the quick decision making that drew lock, maybe by necessity had to make And so that could be something that you carry with you going forward and hopefully you learn from I would like to see more teams start games, thinking as if I'm down 10. You know, what would I do if I were downtown Because often see teams you know, really played some of the most efficient football. When they do that, they hurry it up. They make quick throws when they look to tire out the pass rush. Andi. That's something that that I think they may have stumbled into. Hopefully carries over. Well, the most important question before we could ask you before we let you go, Orr is drew Lock Rankin quarterback dancing, according to Profootballfocus.

So, like his name comes up. I'm like, all right, we start thinking about who we're trying it for the Broncos. Eso. Yeah, Apparently, we can't exactly do that. I will.

"You know, it was a little you see, you've met each other before you have me walking down the street. You were going to go across and walk with him. That's a little too much. No. Maybe next week. Um, but there was a way if there was a recognition that the other exists. And so that means that you're a little bit closer. I mean, here's the thing this season has been Kind of like a season from help a lot of teams. I mean, the Niners are certainly one of them. It has not been easy for the Broncos, a young quarterback getting her a new system. New receivers is best receiver hurt. There's no reason to overreact one way or the other. You know, there's no reason to say, Hey, the poor play is in an environment that was conducive to good play. What's write him off completely. I think there's still so much unknown there. George story joining us here on Broncos country tonight. I want to talk to you about Philip Lindsey here for a moment, because that's a really big topic here locally, almost as much as Verloc. To be honest, he only had six carries in this last game. But he obviously made a ton of those six carries. And I mean like you, were you Run for a 55 yard touchdown. That's going to inflate your number's a bit but six carries for 83 13.8. He wasn't able to get much done in the first half than again. Nobody was Then he sort of turned it on in the second half. And obviously, that 55 Yard was a big boost. He is running backs his the highest average in the NFL right now. What should the Broncos be doing at running back right now? In your opinion? I know that that run turned things around, right? You know, That was certainly the point where I was like, Oh, wow. Maybe they will shot they desperately needed a big play and a quick score. And that's exactly what it wass on guy. You know, I remember my mood shifting when I when I saw that run, and that was something that I thought was always interesting about their moves at the Broncos kind of made it running back, which was They did exactly what a team should they found the running back. It was good in basically for free, you know, and that beauty of running back position is there guys with a lot of talent you could contribute to teams and a good offense. They're everywhere. You don't need to pay them. The Elliot money. They got fumble away. You know, Three victories for you, like you can find the film would be out there and for some reason didn't want to give him A whole lot of run, and I understand that. You know, there's some questions from a path walking perspective. And maybe he's not the greatest receiver in the world. But there are plenty of running backs out there and I think of a Dalvin cook, for example, who's He's averaged after targets like two yards by my instruments, just catches passes in screen deck. You can leverage these guys still on DH, so I certainly think you should be getting more rush. He is a very good runner of the football obviously runs well in that scheme. And I just make sense why? I would be looking for reasons from invention. We're talking earlier, and we felt like there are three players at the Broncos have. That should be a priority, and they probably only get the money for two of them and began ripples Justine Simmons and shall be Harris.

"It's one thing to say Gosh, von Miller and Bradley Chub are a handful and they are or his previous team when he talked about having Khalil Mack or with the Niners when he was there early and Aldon Smith's career and the rest of those guys Justin Smith up front to, among others, That's great. But when your personal isn't that Bradley Chub is showing that he's coming alone. He's coming. Absolutely. I think the last have any games this Ah profootballfocus that that he's legally and pressures along with Aaron. Donald. Andi can't maybe TJ water someone else like that? It was with one less game. With one last game. So that's Bradley job doing what he does. But on the other side, it's kind of a revolving door. You saw some good place from Milly Greed you'd love to see attached you squad get healthy, but Regardless And if you do have on and shut, that's a different conversation. But you don't right now. So why not keep the offense guessing? Even if they beat you every now and then? Because the bullet is going to get picked up the quarterback's going to either get lucky or see it and make the right read, write hot row and you're going to get burned. But look, I played a lot of Madden in my day, and I'm always trying to blitz And if you beat me, I just shake your hand. So I'm I'm never going to back off the idea. That if we need a blitz more toe, keep the offense off off. Guard Go for it. So, yeah, and I like and I think it adds a wrinkle in and kind of changes their identity, which is fine, And I think it's good for Vic Fangio because you want to see That he can change and not just be. Ah. You know, the guys were doing it this way, And that's how I've done it These last, however many years and that's how we're gonna keep going.

"It. I am Jim Rome. It's going on such good Friday to you. Nice to have you right as promised. We're joined right now by a cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's coming, often enormous game against Philadelphia. Get six tackles. He had two passes defended. He had to buy Auntie's 14 tackles and those two interceptions for the season. 16.1 coverage snaps. Poor reception last season, which was sixth best in the NFL. He was the 98 pick overall in 2015 out of Oregon State. The Steelers are for no. They're in first in the ABC North, and they've got a big one at home against Cleveland Sunday. That is a CBS game. My guest is Steven's corners. Steven Nelson, Steve, It's good to have you on the show. How are you? Oh, good. Good. Listen, I know you're focused on the Browns and that challenge. I'm going to get to that in one minute, but I mentioned you had a huge game against Philadelphia. Can you take me back to Sunday? First? What was your mind set going into that game? And did you know you had something special in you? All right, man, just going into that game and weak preparation. Be much and people myself. Um Going into it, man. I was working hard all week trying to get to get out of the running man. And we knew we had a company. And you know, I've always been You know what I was capable of, and you know, it seems far away. You know came through for me. You know, it's interesting. You mentioned you had a chip on your shoulder. And when you look at that secondary, something that you and some of the others have talked about is you all feel like your underdogs. You'll feel like you've got a collective chip on your shoulder. Where does that attitude come from? And how powerful is that when you've got a bunch of guys in that same secondary that had that mentality. Probably just something you know, screaming defense have had historically, you know, just, you know, go out there, you know, make the place you know around the bar, not at the same time. Camaraderie, like seeing on something you know, or convention instilled into question. You know everybody second there with that that, you know to be great. Like underdog. I think that you know to have everybody on page. You know, one of, you know, being claimed that region there. Steve Nelson. Joining us, you know, people who know no, however, is an example. Profootballfocus had you as a top 10 cornerback in the NFL last season, and your numbers stack up really well against the other guys who are pro bowlers. So do you feel like you're starting to get the respect that you deserve, or you feel like people are still sleeping on you? We have people still sleeping on the phone. But you know, it just comes with the territory. I scratch plate and I think that you don't get splashed location also You done with my robot to do season wants to make a lot of AA lot more splash paint even last year, you know, I don't really give up. You know too much, but you know when it all counts. But in a crowd and all that kind of look at this crazy thing about that is there. Oh, you can't make those plays. You can't make those supplies place if they're not testing you. For instance, last season, you didn't get a whole lot of chances for interceptions because teams were not going your way instead was Joe Hayden, who got the eye aunties. So teams if they're not throwing at you. It's a sign of respect. But is there a party that wants to say? Hey, man, Can you test me? I can't make a play if you don't come at me. Yeah, it is part of the game. You know, You just gotta be patient. That's what I learned this week. You know things, you know happen. What you wanted to say. Just kind of happened, you know? All right. Last week, I got to. You know, I went to a game and I always wanted to make a big play, but it's like I'm not gonna beat myself up about it. You know, to the point where I don't need to be playing our get down on myself. Just got you know anything about that Just country. Exactly right. You can't force it. You can't force that kind of thing. You have to wait for the company. Is Steven Nelson joining us Now, when you sign with Pittsburgh, you touched on this. There's his great great Stuart tradition. Especially defensively. Over the years when I've done this, Steve, I've talked to so many guys. They all talk about it. When you side with Pittsburgh is a free Asian in 2019. What was it about the opportunity there that appealed to you so much. Why did you like that Fit? I don't want students fans just because of the Defense Committee defense started ball. And just also, just you know what they had, You know the type of family Oh, no, he's not talking about. You Got a lot of great guys from Russia. Great down there. So you know, I just thought like a good idea for me to come in and play around. No, it's one thing for you to see the fit. It's another for them to approach you the way they did. And what I mean by that is this is not a franchise that normally goes out and makes big signings in free agency. So what I mean to you that they targeted you, and they made you a big offer. It's a minute amount. You know, my agent. I was surprised that I don't know who used to stuff like that. Uh, you know, so You know, I'm just very blessed fortune these guys, you know? So, um you know something you need to come out and help. Steven Nelson joining me for another moment or so. And then, of course, you got the Browns come to your place on Sunday. That is a big game. As you look at the film and you get ready for that game. What is the number one key to slowing them down? Never start that way. Got plenty on office side of Bob Man, So we stopping the run game. Nothing can be good. To us for No. On the year. They're in first in the A F C north, and they've got a big one there at home against Cleveland on Sunday. 1 P.m. eastern CBS game, Steelers Corner, Steven Nelson are gassed, Steve.

"profootballfocus" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Now, here's Murph in Back on KNBR 1045 and six Any sports leader Matty Naoko, Hopefully not attacked by any agave plants or whatever the heck cactuses. I don't know. Maddie is safe and sound, buddy. You good. I am good, basically healed up. Well, I guess it is a little bit more than what we could say about the team. My cover was going going on. I r. Wait two more guys going on. I r. Well, Ziggy on will go on. I r And they want Williams will go on. Yeah, To what I was going to say. Maybe we should have taken your cactus attack Your Gavi attack as a precursor of the Eagles D line what they're gonna do to the Niners cause man, so I mean, I know you were sort of put that game in the rear view mirror. But before we move ahead of the Miami game, just you know, a reflection on that is that Oh, The Trent Williams Mike McGlinchey performance. I mean, you know, it's it's game, it happened. Whatever Trent Williams. His record is as long as anybody's in the league for great play. But McGlinchey just kind of wondering, Is there any thought or analysis that he's not having a good year? Yeah, I think that's I think that's fair to say it looks like he's he's struggling in pass protection in on Sunday night, he struggled in very inopportune times on that last drive. I I don't I think he was doing okay for most of that game. And according to Profootballfocus, he still hasn't allowed a sack this season, while Trent Williams has allowed three. But there's no way he comes out of that came feeling good about his performance, and it was those back to back hits on the final drive with the 40 Niners were up against the clock and And it moved the ball down into striking range. So yeah, that that had to be a disappointment, I think is his blocking in the run game is good, but yeah, it's there's always going to be that that thought in everybody's mind that here was a guy they took with the number nine overall pick and you need More consistent. Better all around performances from him. I don't think 48 hours or necessarily panicked by this, you know, there's clearly no talk about shaking things up on the offensive line, because the best guys we're playing right now, But yeah, no, I think that everybody would expect himto play more consistently better consistently, and ah, I mean, that's that's one of their issues. I guess the good Good news for those guys. They're probably not could be going up against the defense of line quite like that from. I mean, you know Aaron Aaron Donald's coming down in a week or so, but that's not gonna be Mike McGlinchey's problem. Right. Aaron Doll is everybody's problem. Basically, he's a failure. You're right. That's a good point to the quarterback who will have to be worried about Aaron Donald next week, but this Sunday, so Maddy, I know nothing has been revealed. But you know you study Kyle and you study. Trends and the way these things roll. What's your? What's your veteran observation on Jimmy Garoppolo? I mean, I know he's limited in practice yesterday, and Kyle doesn't want to say anything, and I imagine Asking right now is a little premature because they got to go through a couple days of practice, but what you're feeling Yeah. I mean, this is speculative, but in my mind, Jimmy Garoppolo. You don't put him out for a walk through and potentially be taking reps away from a guy who could use ever The set of, you know every bit of preparation possible. So in other words, yesterday morning when they went out for their walkthrough, Jimmy Garoppolo was a quarterback, and it's just it is just that it if they walked through its you're walking through the plays you're seeing. Very slowly how the defense is going to play certain things, and then you can synthesize your view and the decisions you would make, so it's a very It's a walk. If it's literally that a lot to me, if if you didn't think that Jimmy Garoppolo had a chance to play You would. You wouldn't have him out there because Nick Mullins should could sure use that. Those wraps that experience or CJ Beth So my thought is that they're going to give every chance for Jimmy Garoppolo to go out there and play and he didn't make it through a limited practice yesterday. What? That in tails. I'm not completely sure. But will we'll check out how much he practices or if he's more full go today, And if he's full go it any point today or tomorrow. I would think he he would be Out there playing on Sunday and then the other part of that is okay. So let's say he doesn't play. Then who would be the starter? And I just think that even though I believe that That call. CNN thinks that C J about that might have more physical tools and might be able to do everything that he would want to do with his offense. Maybe even a higher level the neck Molins. I just don't know that he can pull off of Nick Mullen so quickly. But I would. I would also suspect that if morons runs into issues like he did Sunday night Kyle would make that change a heck of a lot quicker if we go to TJ bettered right, so, man. Oh, man. I mean, it's it's interesting. All three guys are on the table. You really are probably still watching practice. The next two weeks. I guess if you're talking about the good news is and I see you guys have a piece up on Deebo Samuel in 25 snaps last week. I saw that If Jimmy goes in, Rahim goes, actually, I should probably pause before everything is Any word or thought on, Rahim. Same same kind of question. Given what you know what? You know the knee are you? Would you be more if he on that wonder what probably because of You know, in the with most her, you know he's going to take hits. I mean, the goal for Garoppolo is to keep him upright and not taking any hits. And everything is is a little bit more structured and predictable for a quarterback. Um, where is for a running back? You know, you gotta make split second decisions that your knees and ankles have to be in tune with, so I would think that I would think that's probably a little bit more if he with with most hurt playing, But what it shocked me to see both of those guys out there on Sunday night, I would almost think you'd want them. At least to get out there a little bit. I don't know if you'd want to bring them back after three weeks off for actually in both their cases, 3.5 games off When it's the Rams coming to town, and now you're starting to get in that position where The game's started getting important..

"I want to go over a couple of matchups. That probable focus pointed out things that I noticed while watching the Jets today, Profootballfocus pointing out something that I didn't realize how much Jerry Judy played in the slot. This last week, Did you? Did you realize how much he played this lot? She's played this lot the whole year. Yeah, well, specifically this last week. Georgie was nearly every play in slot 94% Aziz. I could think of to plays. I think he was on the outside. I thought my So is that what we're basically expecting now with this offense when we've been expecting? That's what the original plan this season was sudden. And Patrick on the outside with Judy out of the slot, But now son is not here. So to still see sudden wasn't there for the three So I expected Judy to maybe go outside at that point. Now, I think you still leaving in the sled. That's That's the guy that handlers outside handler Nation Hamilton, the guys that are out there. Hamilton's better block that kind of tipped their hand little when they put him out because obviously blocking But, you know, they need to mix that up a little bit. But, you know, Yeah. Put those guys out there. K. J, by the way, has shown some foot flurry to beat the press. The Judy had shown yet and so I'm perfectly fine with that. I think Jerry Jews could be a great receiver, just like I really do. But for right now, his best position is playing out of that slot roll. Let him lead coated and hammer played more snaps actually than Jerry Judy. Did he? Really? Yeah, I think so. Oh, yeah. Judy took a seat for a minute after Yeah, Last I checked, he played like 92%. 0. Go Look at it again. Here. What was out there A bunch. But with the ribs I think that they were trying to use those guys to block further than Judy. So yeah, And now that I ended up being the case, yeah, KJ him will play 58 snaps. Juri Judi play 46. Okay on offense, So, just saying that, But you're right. I think lets your handler was in run blocking. Nine times. Judy was in run blocking nine times. K. J went out on past rounds. 48 Times versus Judy's 37. So that's really the difference there. But, Yeah, yeah, that that that was kind of an interesting thing, especially since his only a second game. As a pro. While, he said, coming back to this, they kind of pointed out how the Jets or the league's worst grated coverage unit with a 41 grade. Coverage to put that in perspective, one of the three teams that the Broncos have have already played against what's their grades. And what's the differential there? I feel like if we get a little nuance and context, maybe we can. We can see just how During that is, Let's be honest, The Broncos have been against the pretty stiff competition so far. You know your trial by fire Lester games. You played guys that you expect to be in the playoffs all rights. The coverage grade just has a little bit of context. Like you said 41 is the worst. Tampa Bay is 71 Lord. It's a great in coverage. Tennessee is 61 as a grade. And the Steelers find them real quick here. It's not alphabetical. There actually are 50. That's ah, that's a little bit surprising at the corners are like I said, You did say that kind of beatable that the thing is, if you can stave off that front seven corners unbeatable, and that's what happened when the Broncos went match protecting its dealers thing. They were able to get Jeff Frisco to pick on those corners. I don't know why they didn't continue do that against Tampa. Broncos, by the way, our league low in special teams, Jake probably not a lot of sense. Probably surprised team's been abysmal. 32 this absolutely not getting it done. If you want talk coaching problems, that's that's the one you circle you start right there. If that and that one might be, and you and I talked a little bit about that. Heading into this week saying, You know, maybe it won't be Fangio so much on the hot seat, but it could be some other ancillary coaches if they continue to struggle. Yeah, Okay, So coming back to this come more points that they brought up here that I thought were interesting s O. They said Handler led the Broncos in routes run, which I mentioned, and they think that he might end up getting matched up with The Cornerback Bless Austin. Who is the 81st grated cornerback out of 85 qualifiers. And he runs a 474 40 against Cage. A handler. Yeah, man, if it's me I'm trying to line him up for one on ones on that side, because this year is going to probably be on Tim Patrick right into Ceres Amore physical that this area is a Tampa to corner. That was when he was at his best up there, and Andy used to share an agent with Ah Ah, Agent for Bobby and J. Irving, and that, you know disappears. It is a pretty good corner. He's not CB one, but he's pretty good corner from Indy, right? Well, he'd been a little bit the Browns Hindi speech been around, but he's out of AA. Midwood College. I believe in Missouri in a very small enrollment. He's there. He's the physical corner. He's the bet their best corner. He's a Tampa to corner. You know, physical presses own corner kind of guys. You know, play can play a little bit of man. But he's at his best in kind of a press zone situation. But it was only bless Austin is there is there are other guy starting in the office eyes? We mentioned pool? Is going to be so it's Brian Poole. He's going to be your slot. You're nickel. He's probably the best corner. Actually, you think so. I don't know what their grades are out there. But in terms of overall talent for the scheme, he's probably the best. Right. Greatest. Hi. Great. Okay, the highest of these gonna make that makes the most sense because he's I think he's the best of the other three. I would say pool to see her and then Austin would be the you know, pulls actually played more snaps. Then to see her has take their Bryce Callahan basically and Bless Austin. It's blush. Juan is his name, but he's he's played the most snaps of all their corners, but that those of the guy so but those guys don't necessarily scare me. And in fact,.

"At three. It's Big Al and Jo Jo on K away news radio. Back in a power field of Mile High Am Dave Logan, along with Rick Lewis, We have called the gameplay today in Pittsburgh with the Broncos on the road for the first time losing 26 21 back to Pittsburgh. A talk with Broncos tight and no offense. No, it's Dave Logan. Tough game. Obviously, they get the ball to you in the second half. And even with Jeff Driskel in the game, the backup quarterback, it seemed like you guys were ableto generate some pretty significant offense. So once you got things going Yeah, You know, I think as much attributed to just everybody. Kind of, you know, kind of having the next man up mentality obviously would love to have you in there. You got hurt with a shoulder injury just stepped into a greatjob. Hey, put us in a position to win at the end of the game and We've got to grow in that area to finish those games up. You're a young guy, but obviously you have turned into Ah, really good peace force. Good enough, Noah. Thanks for the time that we'll talk to you this week. No problem. Appreciate no offense, who had four receptions today? Good for 57 years and a score. You know, Profootballfocus keeps so many statistics as do a couple of other agencies as well. It would be interesting if they keep something like this. I mean, really know, offend his first five touchdown receptions in the league, coming from four different quarterbacks. I wouldn't think that's happened too many times for somebody in his first five touchdown receptions, but he's a He's a real weapon for this offense, and I thought it was kind of funny how he referred to the young guys on the team. What is he, like? 22. Yeah, Second, he's 22 years old. It's so he's already looking at himself is a veteran on this team, which is a good sign a good sign of maturity and man. You know, you gotta love no offence. This guy's got a bright future. Yeah, you and I were talking during a great least, I think it was during the break we were talking about Listen in the NFL. You're judged and how many games you win and how many games you lose? There's no moral victories. There's no well, we think that no, I mean coaches were hired, fired and players come and go. But how many games you win and how many games you lose? That's really The bottom line that said, You look at this broncosoffense and I'm assuming Drew Locke is going to be okay. We don't know what you look atyou, said Rick Cage, a handler. No offense. Juri Judi Courtland Sutton's the Old man in the offense in terms of the receivers, and he's in his third season. You had Melvin Gordon. You hope to get back Philip Lindsay. You know, they've rebuilt the offensive line to a point that even though they gave up the sacks today, you think they're going to be better. They certainly were able to run the ball a little bit more effectively. I think that they're building a nice nucleus of talent, especially in this broncosoffense. Yeah, they're loaded with young talent on the offensive side of the ball and handler. Hammer produced more today than I was expecting This a guy who has been hurt most of training camp with a hamstring and playing in his first NFL football game. He ends up with three catches 48 yards. He also ran the ball once for nine. So he's a playmaker. And I didn't think that he would have this much of an impact in his very first game in the pros. But, man, I am excited about these young guys and If they could get get a healthy drew lock back here soon, And we hopefully will know more about Drew locks injury here soon. You know, you've got to feel pretty good about the future. Yep. You do. But you don't feel very good about today is the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
