"On to tell me if you think we are better this year worse this year. Or if it's you know roughly support start with the defensive line last year. The defensive line was actually healthy for this game. We had hayward allahu allahu to it and our and we had warmly there as well with those four guys playing a lot Almost none of the other defensive lineman played that game this season. we don't have to it. He ain't he's on ira right now. So it's the or looked to be hayward awalu. Chris warmly and then either zeya bugs or carlos davis. One of those guys is going to be the number four. Would you say we're better worse or even we'd have to be working step on out to rotation then you're you're you're obviously worse. That's that's an easy one beyond doing that when i was like. Yeah that's like you said. Better i was gonna look at you. I still have faith in this group. But they're not as good we. You don't have stuff onto. Yes seven onto. I always loved stuff onto the do has to pass rush move. He has a bull rush any as slim. And that's literally all he needs because his his his major move is just beat the crap out right across from me. I'm beating the snot out of that dude. Do i'm driving by august. Love stuff onto what it does for the rest of the defense is just it. Just creates chaos. I mean that's and that's what we miss book as blood did that to last year because he just the athletic freak i think steph onto. It is to when when you're six five three fifteen. Yeah you can. you can send stuff up. yup yup. A lot of a lot of playmakers are able to finish a lot of plays when the offense is reeling because just somebody injected themselves into your backfield and blow up your play. They what devin. Bush they patrick. They make plays off that chaos earliest moved to outside linebacker. Last season teaching. What alex highsmith but depre- was out the number three linebacker. That game outside linebacker was a lesson con me ogden knee. He this year we got in highsmith again. And our number three is melvin. Ingram way better this year. You know what i would. I would say that that were maybe not way better. I'd say we we were even of blood played last year. Because i had much confidence it's high sniffing year to and what. Melvin ingram breeze. The third pass rushing and obviously teach every the urine only gonna get better. He's he's not he's not crying yet is he's. He's headed there. But so i'd say even if bud was healthy last year that we still be better but as we know bud in this group were way better this year. Yeah and i think if tj why has a slow start to the season because he hasn't been no preseason stuff. I honestly don't believe that but even if that does happen. Right i think melvin ingram covers it kind of your ability to work. Tj in and play ingram ingram's versatile anger can do a lot. The view remember. Blood can hurt in the risk in football team. Game right guard was out after the browns game. I think the debt of bliss going around. You know i'm wrong. That was yeah but but but was the football team. I think it was like yeah. We were living in those now. Like the twelve game. So how however many sex bud hand up to that point. I bet collectively high smith been ingram. Have more sex to eleven games than will but did so the production will be hired. All right. i like that take. I like that. We'll see inside linebacker. You're into this one inside linebackers when we faced the buffalo bills and twenty twenty. Our top three snap gators at inside. Linebacker were avery williamson. Marcus allen and ulysses gilbert the third. this year are talk to you. Guys are projected to be devon bush. Joe show vert and roberts fillet way better game. We're like that way. Better right answer. okay safety. I don't even know veneto go over the at and try and make dr mun so but do we do do do do we like to do. We like to the backup unit better. This year was was sean spicer yet. Right that's true. I do like the backups right. But they don't play until somebody gets hurt. You know some of my seat time in nicholas john. So i'm going to push on that one cornerbacks steven nelson camp sutton. Mike helton and justin lane last year and that was killed after his injury. He wasn't one hundred percent this year. Joe haden cameron sutton. James pierre and then witherspoon moulin one of those guys. I'm really could go push. I'm gonna say slightly better because hanes is playing in. I liked sutton in the slot. I mean steven. Nelson digs have his way with nelson last year like literally avenues way and i think i think with this with this group i just i know we lose a lot with hilton. Even even he'll say we lose a lot in stopping the run game in the blitz but buffalo's not running and i think the way they spread the films that that sudden could be more valuable in coverage well hilton would be playing up at the line against this team. Yeah i agree with you there. I'd go. I'd go push your slightly better. Which means we're looking outside the defensive line.

"He's better at that are so for me what we're looking at. What steelers debt. As they got an upgrade on roberts blame when it comes to play down and being run stopper they got an upgrade roberts filleting in terms of calling plays and knowing the defense and adjusting to what the at you and they got a guy who can cover and maybe blitz. There's gonna be some interesting things were that we're going to have to see play out like for example. Joe schober was on a terrible defense. Was he targeted less. Because the guys around him were worse than so he was just not the easiest guy to pick on right or roberts. Blame was often hey who he had a target. You're gonna target that backup guy who's never played. Who has you know before last season had exactly one snap on defense and his career so yet he got targeted more are are you gonna see where maybe joe schubert in this defense puts up better stats you know per target. Maybe he gives up fewer completions and so his yards per target. Go down in this year. Maybe we see joe. Schubert is actually a really good blitzer and his his rush percentage in his pressure rates. Go up or maybe we see. That's not a strength of his. And roberts blaine is just a better blitzer. That joe schober. Who knows there are some leeway here that we're gonna have to find out we're going to feel out how schober fit specifically in this defense. Statistically wise like what his productions going to be as he changes roles from from. You know the jacksonville defense to this defense. But really if you watch film. He's very similar to robert splaine. So what you saw the good of robert spilling last year with a little better run stuffing That's what i expect from. Joe schubert this year which is great. That's an upgrade. That's a that's a great addition especially for the for the cost. They got him for so two round out the show into our last little segment here on go through the last rest of the position. We spent a lot of time. Joe show burton inside linebackers. How he fits in devon bush gonna be your number one linebacker if he's healthy. You know there's a chance to steelers really are trying to limit his snaps early in the season because he's not one hundred percent yet i would understand the case or if they just say hey you know what we're we're going to give you a little break. You played a ton last season or give fewer snaps. But he's your number one linebacker eastern over one linebacker show. Joe shelbert is good and coverage but there's people out there saying he's better than david bush coverage in that's just simply not true. Film does not back that up numbers. No back that up. It's just it's not true Joe showers can be number two and he's playing a lot. He's gonna play a lot. He is a veteran of the group. He's going to be that you know the the voice in the helmet. He's gonna be the guy with the green dot he's going to be calling the defense colin adjustments which is good. We need someone who's really good at that. We haven't had someone who's really phenomenal. At that sense james farrior. He might be the best at it. Sense james farrior left and that would be a significant addition to our defense in no other way. is joe schubert. The equivalent of james farrior. That wanted to be clear to say that in case people here that wrong thing. I'm saying joe schober is that good. He's not a but he's going to be the best. Probably you know that that calling captaining the defense. The james farrior dick from a linebacker position. He's probably be the best sense. James farrer left that we have doing that specific job behind him. Roberts he's he's like joe schober and i would not be surprised if they wanna give joe schober to a break. You know it would be probably like in nickel. Where roberts billion really fits in. Well roberts plays a great fit in the nickel defense At at inside linebacker. I would not be surprised to see him there where he can add his blitzing to the pile. Then you have some interesting players behind there. You've got ulysses gilbert the third. You've got marcus allen. And you've got buddy johnson buddy johnson the rookie draft. He looks good. He is more of a thumper he's going to be that guy who can who can mix it up in line take on blockers stuff to run. He's not bad in coverage either at least at the level he's playing now which is kind of the second to third string Players for the other team is what he's been facing and he's shown pretty. Well they're ulysses gilbert. The third loved what he showed as a rookie Loved it his first preseason. He looked dynamic. He got injured. He's a series of injuries. And he has he hasn't really developed and in fact this season you know. I'm still looking for him to get back to looking like that player. He looked like when the steelers had just drafted more. He looked so impressive. I don't know maybe his injuries means he's never going to get back to that ply being that player right now. He's in a battle with marcus allen. Just make this roster bush over explain are gonna make it a buddy. Johnson is is going to be very hard to knock out simply because he is a rookie and he is looking. Really good. Just not quite. Nfl for snaps on defense radhi. He looks like a guy that next year could really take a huge second year. Leap marcus allen. Played really good in very limited snaps against philadelphia. He is not anyone you want to take on a blocker. He is just get swallowed up by blocks but in space and particularly Like a dime back role where he is taking on where he's in coverage on linebackers and coverage in zone. He's really good. He showed some fantastic aggressive defense on running backs against philadelphia When he was in there against a pretty good rookie gain well for For for philadelphia. Who's a good receiver. he did a fantastic job manned up on him really fantastic work. He knows the defense. He's he's got the the i q side down..

"Same were the players involved and their personalities and how they on the team and all that stuff are involved a you can just sit there and look at their fit They would have been better off switching. Vince williams and joe schubert because joe chauve is a better fit in my opinion to be next to devin bush whereas what they wanted was more of a vince williams next two miles jack. So that gives you an idea. Why joe schubert is a great pickup for the dealers but also not the biggest loss for the jaguars because he didn't fit what they needed. So who is joe. Show over whether let's let's take a look at it real quick right Job has played a lot. He's been to a pro bowl and he's good across the board. There's not a lot of weaknesses when you look at his physical profile right when you look at his size his speed agility if you go back to the combine and look at those numbers. He's remarkably similar to roberts fillet. He's the same height they're roughly the same speed agility He's he was bigger. Then spelane coming out. When roberts plane came out of college he basically really needed hit an nfl weight room. And he'd right. So the difference. Between shelbert and roberts d'alene physically and their athleticism is very small schober. It's a bit heavier on his frame. Still i believe now than than Robert spelane is and that helps him in the run defense when you look at his film and you look at his stats. He reminds me of robert splaine. Just a little stouter against the run partly because he's a little bigger right if you look at their coverage stacks even if you look at their coverage stats from last season okay. Schober played a lot more then. Spelane did He was on the field for five hundred coverage snaps. Okay all this just just a disclaimer. All of these all these stats come from sports info info solutions Through their data hub tool. It's a free tool on the web. You can look that up but Joe show was on the field for five hundred coverage snaps where he wasn't rushing right where he was in coverage he was talking to forty. Two times gave twenty eight completions. Two hundred ninety three yards Came away with three interceptions. And one defended pass roberts blame played significantly less. He was on the field for one hundred. Fifty eight coverage snaps was targeted. Twenty three times gave up ten completions. For one hundred seventy yards had one interception three defended passes. Okay what does that mean. Well we can start with Robbers lane was targeted. Fourteen point six percent of his time on the field. Joe schubert eight point four percent us lane only gave up four point six five yards per target whereas joe shelbert gave up six point. Nine seven They both gave up right around ten yards per completion Splaine just had a much. Lower completion percentage against the shelbert dead. If you combine all of that you look at the non of yards. They gave up per cover. Snap roberts plane is point. Six seven yards cover. Snap joe schober is point. Five nine a little difference not ally there And spelane got two more passes went his way. He had one interception in roughly one third the snaps that joe schober got three but explain defended three other passes whereas joe schubert got to three hundred options and only defended so he both defended four passes. Which means blaine had a much. Higher percentage of targets that went his way that he enter the he. He broke up that he actually defected. Another part of splaine game that is considered one of his best attributes is his blitzing right. He does the. Ceo's call hug blitzing where he's on a linebacker that light or he's where he's a linebacker covering running back in man that running backstays in the block. He transitions into a blitzer. It's also the steelers deal with play action if you watch a play. Action pass and roberts is made up on the running back the minute. It looks like a play act like it looks like iran. He is charging that running back. He's going right for him and when he sees at the play action pass. He's still going for that running back. He's still going and they have to break off into coverage if the runningback changes routes Or if the running back turns to like help block someone else you blitz the quarterback if they turn him block you. Then you're match. You know you try. Beat him in and get in there. But that is how the steelers negate extra blockers when you keep an extra blockers to help block. T. j. watt cameron heyward steph onto it by debris alex smith when when you keep an extra guys to block those guys roberts blamed roberts d'alene rushed on fifteen point one percent of pass coverage of a pass plays. He was in on and he had an impressive. I mean ridiculously impressive. Forty two point nine percent treasury. That's incredible when he did a hug. Litz when he was that guy adding onto the blitz. he got pressure schober last year. rushed around eight percent of past about the past place and had a really good twenty three point three percent pressure rate. That's good splaine's better. So in coverage shelbert is a more proven a more reliable guy. The roberts spelane but if you look at joe schober and you look at roberts fling when he before his injury when he was playing his best. Football of two thousand twenty. You're talking about a very similar player. You're getting a very similar player again. Joe show bert is proven. He's done this year in year out and you may have heard The seals are talking about him wearing the green dot calling the defense. He's that guy that you want calling the defense before like. Oh does that mean devon bush. No it just means. This guy is better at devon bush than that specific skill. call the defense colin adjustment. Seen what the offense is doing. He's better than devon bush at that specific skill and really if he's better than he should do it right. Whoever's the best at it should do it if he's better than bush at that then yeah don't why would you have bush do it. Just because you're like oh bush was are. He's our number one linebacker. Well he's still our number one linebacker. Just joe chauffeur's gonna call the defense.

"Guess Where they were talking about florida man robs convenient for florida man does this is like they were afraid of florida man. He was always doing something that was great so anyways know a lot of big ten there but you know it's really good to see that this man when i say this man kevin colbert. He definitely has his finger on the pulse of everything. So i'm going to ask you guys a question. They don't put a lot of gm's in the hall of fame. I mean they're Contributors possibly but how close to a hall of fame. General manager is kevin colbert. Now she. i'll start with you. Commented on mix. Michael makes article today. And he's never got the respect The now the earned. He's a lot like big man He's done a tremendous job and people want to talk about. You know just a few of his. Mrs and of course anybody achievements fallible. But people don't give him credit. I mean he's he's a credible tame You know they if you look at that. Chart came out recently about Had a losing season since two thousand thirty and before being of course and But a lot of those we covered as well because he's just kept the talent pipeline flowing and the last few years he's went out of the steelers comfort zone and traded up in the draft multiple times Give up future draft capital stuff that they don't like to do but you know i was like i believe the draft louder milk. You know with all the talent we had on the The stores have on that line and now eating cry. Because i mean he looks like he's going to be the real deal and and 'cause i knew they always knew more than me still. You know you'd think i wanted to do that for. But i think that he definitely should be When he's finally retires he deserves hall center ice. Tony are you worried about. Kevin colbert retiring with. Amanda like omar khan waiting in the wings. I think migrating about the steelers is they just have such a good Structured system a good a good organization. Now they know how to win the blueprints there and and tom donahoe who was also from pittsburgh he he was a fantastic income jam back then but but he was basically the gm and then he had problems with art ways but they went right to come inc. It's been was such a seamless transition and He was able to work great with cower. And and now. Tommy doesn't seem to have a huge ego. He doesn't seem to Feel threatened by anybody. Just he just does job and he's such a a reassuring guy Am i worried about it. I hate to see him go. But but i think i think they have such a good again good structured organization. The next guy they bring up Woman whoever they bring it and put in that position. It's going to be think. I've competence that they're going to be able to do the job. I think the The next gm of the steelers could possibly be megan schober. and i. i mean at least hire. Hire her a as maybe a in the media because fantastic Actually got to. She seems like an awesome wife. To as far as making schubert's stuff for the lega baby stuff i saw stuff that she's done and like different tweets So that's that's a great addition to the team to just just having a support like that. It's really nice to have a great family in there too. So i feel like. They're getting an all-star pipe player it all-star type guy and all star type family as well. Let's talk about Let's talk about robert. Splaine though fellas and tony. I'm going to start with you roberts. Spelane is he. I guess he's being demoted in a sense but robert spelane has not lost. As far as i'm concerned he hasn't lost anything as far as the need that he brings. He has a lot of worth to this team too. So coming in as that third guy in and the next man up where do you see the value of roberts filleted you feel that he's lost value or do you feel like that. His value is best. Placed as a second stringer. Because i look at this. I was talking. I was on another show yesterday With some friends on up friends on a another youtube show. It's definitely something you should. you should check out. It's called the noelle's podcast. And i was i was making. It wasn't a joke. I was joking. But i wasn't joking. I actually would love to see a pro bowl spot going to either that or a hall of fame spot going to a backup quarterback because there are guys in history. That are great. Backup quarterbacks in that staying in their lane just like there's great offensive coordinators not great head coaches but great offensive coordinators. Do you think that roberts bylane. Tony is one of the great backups. In this league as far as next man up or in-depth piece for sure he showed its value last year when when when when devon bush went down and he came in and he's not going to be devon bush's. I'm going to be joe schober. But but he came in and played six games. What was it six games. He separate his injury and he did a great job. I mean he. He did a great job filling in he made some plays. And you made some big plays. So i think he could be more valuable fisher. People think even backup if they if if he has commended for bush. Bush is having trouble early in the year. One hundred percent from that injury. Remember tell me been ten months since. He suffered a torn. Acl you know. I mean people. I think i think jeff said the other day people assume that you can come back and look at split from that injury now because a modern science but but or modern medicine..

"Warned everybody. Prior to the game with a totally new office of land totally revamped and most of the eventual starters were not playing in that game kendrick green I believe will be the starter but with a whole new line and a new scheme even knew off. Its vying catch it. It's going to affect the skill position players. And i thought they did better than i expected. I was positive about their performance. And and not everybody agrees but i was looking for a mindset in the aggression and The physicality the blocking you know harris will get stopped for three are gain and they pushed him for two more yards. You know you can in that. You know but i do. They never did. If the play went by one of the veteran guys we had last year they stood watch. It hardly ever even got up off the ground. They did not want to block it out of the way to the grabs in. They had to get back up. That's it's harder on us old guys so we got a lot of younger guys. Know everything. I think that haskins In in rudolph route aflaid with a little bit more starters than haskins Of course you are playing. You know the second and third string but the time has got in there but i think his first action. He was trying to be very cautious with the ball. I mean you can see his arm. I mean he he just he's got a cannon But i think he was just being overly cautious He wants the czech down Nickname but. I do think we'll see more of him driving the ball down the field as he gets comfortable but he's still going to be a project. This is third offense in the league. Right and So i think people expect him to be the number two quarterback this year might be pushing that a little bit. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have a future pittsburgh. Yeah i'm i tired hard to disagree with that either. You know i. I'd say if i would rate it i'd say stock is slightly down mainly because He said shannon and everything is being overly cautious and he didn't get to play with the same starters as as rudolph and and you have so many people going in and out of the lineup. Plus there is no game plan. So it's hard to say but like you said Bryant i if the true competition for the number two spot. He's should start against eagles. So i'm anxious to see if he does get the start on thursday and and if they unleash him a little bit all right so my next one's gonna be and we'll we'll we'll start with you shannon roberts filleting last year sensation guy came in for devon bush. What do you think what do you think him. After thursday's game and people were really down on display. And you know again in the in our. It's three or four days. You're going to have those middle. I'm eggers get matched up on Running-backs crossers all the time. And and there were you know. He didn't get to fly with bush last year. He kind of replaced bush and i So this you know this year. He's playing you know first game with with the gilbert and he really didn't play with him either and sometimes there's a familiarity in they have to find a comfort zone And i like the both guys. Were trying to do too much and when you try to do too much you often do too little because you're over thinking and you're not playing his thank show and he's a various punctual player as why he could play even though he doesn't have the all the measurable and you know of the great forty time and everything like that but he's always a step ahead well if he's over thinking and he's not going to be a step ahead so i thought it was a little bit of an overreaction. I mean it every what his best game. But i've seen him in real regular season football and he and he's had some excellent games last year and so that was really didn't i'm not too concerned about it I mean w had to say stock down a little bit. But i do think that's being a little bit of an overreaction you brian just like i talked about a wanted to call him dennis. I'm sorry dwayne haskins. I'm still stuck on saved by the bell. I apologize for that. We're just like i talked about dwayne haskins you. I expect a better dwayne haskins this week. I expect a better robert spelane this week. I would like to echo. Almost everything shannon said with what he said about. Roberts bylane as well i. I don't think he looked comfortable. I i think that he we saw a lot of good stuff out of him last year. He was next a vinnie. Richie a lot last year. So this is. This is a very crucial position as we know especially with depth you know we love the depth at outside linebacker the depth that inside linebacker is not as true as we thought it was and we really expected hate. Even vince responded to a a tweet. By michael beck there. There's that name again. Michael back and responded to a tweets and michael ask. Can roberts spelane be the next great steeler inside linebacker vinnie. Bbc's cheese stepped in and said one hundred percent he can. I really think he can just like. I think i think haskins has a spot on the team and we'll play better but we didn't see it in the first game now the question. I want to know when we're talking about spelane is how much should the scheme did they let us see. And even how much do they let us see on offense as well not much. Now go ahead so there you go. As far as that goes we they might be saving saving the the rest of the peanut butter jar for week one.

"I'm a kind of invested in him. But it was nice to see him at the start in an play the arguably the most difficult or at least most important position on the line protecting the quarterback's blindside as a left tackle so it was a new. A new line and in didn't play Obviously brandon play. Even fryer meath was out so you know and yeah he had. He had a clay pool in. They're incapable I think he's going to be a stud. But still you're limited as far as as far as your starters and that's just a mason rudolph the other to the other guys haskins dogs. They had as far as i can remember all reserves. Were in there by the time they got in. So you're judging these guys based on that and the fact that you have to factor that in. I should say when you're judging these guys and you have to factor in in the fact that that there's no real game plan in preseason. You know they're not you know when you're talking about a game plan for for an offensive coordinator for example. It's not just about calling specific plays. It's about calling place based on what you think. A work against Whether with a defensive doing as far as formation they're weak spots they're weaklings and you're building went playoff of another. You're you're You're trying to find a rhythm trying to find cohesion and you really don't get a whole lot of that when it comes to to preseason football. It's it's mainly about what the coaches want to see as far as individual players. Not so much. What what they want to see as far as what could work to be an opposing defense. So it's hard to really judge a backup quarterbacks in preseason game but you have to and i don't know if any of these guys are going to really stand out over these next three games but It's gonna be interesting to see if what if one does and if he does stand out whether it's rude off or or or haskins or even dobbs if that factors into the coach's decision as far as who's going to be the backup in twenty twenty one who's going to get cut and we all soon rudolph's going to make the team. But is he gonna make the team and beat a third stringer. Is he gonna make the team. Back up Ores haskins gonna take his job in the back The number two based on performance and pedigree 'cause we got the factor then he's the first round pick you know that that means a lot especially early the player's career Coached might say they don't they. Don't evaluate these guys. They don't weigh in their draft status. But come on. They you know they do. I mean first round picks get get more. Chances didn't undrafted free agents for a reason to sum that up. I think the. I don't think any of the quarterbacks were great or horrible. They were in between so as far as the defense To echo the sentiments of many the inside linebackers looked pretty bad with the exception of buddy johnson the rookie fourth round pick from texas. Am especially in pass coverage. I'm talking about the ones who didn't show out. Roberts spelane yuji three marcus allen but you have to remember you know. There's a reason why the defense looked Suspect after ryan says your got hurt. There's a reason why they were so aggressive. Two years ago in trading up in drafting devin bush in the top in with the tenth. Pick of the twenty nine thousand nine hundred draft s. because at inside linebacker of that caliber make such a big difference for for a defense especially in the middle of the field. They do so much of the heavy lifting. And you know when you're talking about decent Sort of underdog players the lunch pail type players which is like what robert splaine represents that blue collar guy mexican reading. Bill cowers book right now as a throughout the week. I've been reading. It's really really good book by the way. And he was. That kind of plays a roberts filleting kinda kinda player undrafted free agent and he had to basically you know absorbed to play ball can rely on his on his instincts said try to you. Know make up for his lack of overall natural talent so but he could be bill cower. It's never going to be the best linebacker on seem. You might might have been the most versatile he could play all the positions. But he's never going to be the best one. So when you when you're talking about a team defense you know if you're if you're in there and robert splaine in alan those guys they were in there without you know. Mika fitzpatrick opposite. Tj what arguably the best defensive player in the nfl right. Now cam hayward. I don't think to play play today. So you know you're without all those players that would pick up a lot of a lot of special demonstration. The middle of the field would pick up a lot of slack and do a of heavy lifting. And if you're one of those kind of blue collar lunch pill defenders you can just excel at what you do best. We saw for many years. With with vince williams. He was so much better when he was alongside or shazia or even ten minutes because those guys are such so athletic they allowed a thumper like williams and do his thing which was playing run in and the last few years getting after the quarterback. So you know. It's hard to evaluate spain or or you even you d three. Although i think yes back guy has to show eventually because people keep talking about how great of an athlete he is but he really hasn't laughed at this point he's been hit heard a lot..
