"The steelers made some news yesterday by releasing veteran guard. David decastro cut saves the steelers eight point seven million dollars in cap space and they moved quickly to replace decastro by signing free agent guard trae turner but this all comes after longtime senator mark pouncey retired and the steelers lost offense lineman matt feiler now one hundred villanueva in free agency back in march so big changes for a unit in charge of protecting thirty nine year. Old ben rothlisberger jeff. How did this all come about. Well dan if we didn't already have all these questions about the offensive linemen. Decastro comes along and is dealing with what he now says. We'll be another ankle surgery. He is not sure whether he'll continue his career. He says that he would be happy to hang it. Up if indeed. His ankle can't recovering time for the season. But this is certainly a situation facing this steelers team. That makes things even murkier now. We should point out. They did sign trai. Turner guard has some pro bowls. Resumes did miss nine games last year. But now this team will be with four new starters on the offensive line's important note though here that they struggled last year so perhaps they can just get better with a new group

"I can tell you here in houston. People think not always. Does sean decided he's play his last game for the texans. Maybe the texans have had a change of heart because the whole face the franchise thing. Let's talk about that for one. Second how do you go from. He was the clear cut. Face the franchise. I mean on all the commercials here. They're all gone. How do you come back from that. When it's your face the franchise guy. Can't he come back into the fold and would he be comfortable coming back into the fold. Yeah i don't know. I mean i think that's a longer more drawn out conversation. Maybe another time. But i'll say this. We saw ben rothlisberger comeback and re reemerges the face of franchise in pittsburgh thank anti. Most things can of be worked through. It'd be interesting. But i will say this if you take davis meals in the third round and you do jettison deshaun watson this offseason you go right back to the pond and fish again for another quarterback so what is really the point when you have tyrod taylor there. I think that to me was the thing you know. You're going to go back and have fish in those waters. I don't know. I think you might have wasted a third round pick but you brought up something it it it really makes me think about. Why did the knee jerk reaction to other quarterbacks going. We saw a quarterback ago in the first three rows. that's the most ever but couch. S went to the buccaneers at the bottom of the second round in kalama going to the vikings in the third
Josh Dobbs Signs One-Year Deal With Steelers
"I guess the other news of today and kind of completely overshadowed by of into william signing Josh dobbs quarterback is back for year number. Five with the pittsburgh steelers. What do you think of a the the readmission of josh dobbs With the black and goal. I like it. I think it really for people who want a quarterback hauling out the best news. I think i think it's more than anything. Vote of confidence in the guys they have. You wanna fourth quarterback for camp and josh dobbs in my opinion is the right kind of quarterback to push a dwayne haskins. He's not going to match. Dwayne haskins talent with the questions on dwayne haskins. Aren't does he have talent questions are you know. Where's his head in the game. What's his Level what's he like in the locker room. You know you're talking leadership and you're talking. You know the love of the game sitting in the film room watching the film breaking stuff down understanding the offense all these things. Those are josh dobbs strengths. Just odd isn't the greatest passer but he does that to the point that he's you know a guy. Ben rothlisberger likes because he can rely on him so to me. He's an insurance policy. Should dwayne haskins causing any problems and they have to get rid of. It has to cut ties with him. And he's also the kind of guy to plush dwayne haskins in the in the film room kind of be that guy who's like you know try and keep up your kid like let's go. It's it's time for you to learn this. It's time for you really. It's it's your what third season you know. You need to have this stuff down So i think josh dobbs is actually the perfect addition to push him and honestly if he sticks around. He's someone bent likes having around.

Who will be Indianapolis Colts' quarterback in 2021
"But we begin today with music that philip rivers is retiring after seventeen seasons in the nfl. Sixteen with the chargers and san diego and los angeles and this one season in indianapolis when he got to the playoffs rivers never got to the super bowl but he stands fifth all time in passing yards and touchdown passes and he started the final. Two hundred forty games of his career without interruption will now become a high school football coach in alabama. Like his dad. We'll how will you remember his career. Well tony we automatically in any sport. Now we began to group people right and we associate certain people with certain folks football. It's done by position you know in a way that is probably not in the other sports. But i think of warren moon and dan fouts guys who were prolific prolific players who had long runs and played almost every game and they had a piled up passing stats. Galore like rivers did but they didn't reach the super bowl and then about through no fault of their own. Their teams weren't good enough. They got close. Each of those three gentlemen got close. But didn't have the breakthrough to the super bowl and rivers the same way river sets himself apart because he ran his mouth a lot. Which i have done without and i tend to like trash talkers but i i am. I didn't take to that. But he was a prolific quarterback. Tony he will receive serious consideration for the hall of fame. You know. I mean fouts and moon that to me shapes the category. I don't know if you've got other names. You'd like to put in there as well. Get to the hall of fame in a second but in looking at philip rivers his career. I thought he was a very very good player. I will remember. Most is the way the way he delivered the ball where he wound up and threw it as far as he could. And most of the time you thought it wasn't even going to get there. But it got there especially with antonio gates and it ended up in the end zone a lot. You talked about grouping people. Well i'm gonna group them as well. I'm going to group them with his draft class and draft class ally manning ben rothlisberger. They both dot to multiple super bowls. They both won super bowls. I feel badly for philip rivers in this regard to me. It's like charles barkley. It's everything but the ring because the statistics are certainly there. And i thought it was a very good quarterback. I'll take the hall of fame issue. I'll add another name dan marino. Who never won a super bowl if the comparables to marino and to moon and to fouts are rare. Then he's going to get in. I don't think they hold it against you. If you haven't won a super bowl there are people who've won. Two super bowls aren't in the hall of fame. You not room for a long ten years. Yeah do you think he would get in.
Bill Barnwell on NFL Week 14
"To one bill barnwell. We just watched the now. Ten and three bills beat the now eleven two steelers twenty six to fifteen and i am not certain of many things in this world anymore. But i am pretty certain. They're going to be a lot of babies named josh or in buffalo alone that people in buffalo are named. Ej drew rob tyron. We're all going to have to change their name to josh. Over the next few months bill barnwell host the bill barnwell show podcast. And you can find his indispensable. Nfl column on espn plus every monday. He's also never broken a table that we know of. They'll help me understand this. How did the buffalo bills turned things around after such a slow. Start on offense tonight. This was interesting because the slowest kinda out to these sort of exact start you would want right. I mean josh. Allen was struggling the steelers pass rush was in his face early and often does allen. Started this game seven of sixteen for thirty nine yards with an interception and a fumble alan of the gun. He's back late rush. Throws it down the left side line and it's intercepted that is a great offense was struggling on the side of the ball. It's fair to say but look like the steelers were josh allens head and maybe last year that would have been it. Josh allen never would have recovered this year is different. Josh allen is different and he has a weapon nobody can cover and the combination of allen and stefan digs took advantage of some rare mistakes and misplace. From the pittsburgh steelers allen's a hot stretch started really with the steelers tried to tackle digs on a third in three without hands which is hard. Alan took that playoff field for twenty three yards. And then he got going digs had two catches on plays. Were still defensive. Backs just fell down including a touchdown and now made one great throw against to coverage for a touchdown. Pass to gabriel davis. Cox's arm fires into the renzo caught buffalo touchdown bills. Gabriel davis caught a thirteen yard strike. And a second throw on the run of long pass interference penalty to dos knox. It seemed like the steelers might have figured out the third year quarterback but by the second half it was pretty clear things where the other way around so looking at the steelers now bill. I am curious what exactly has been solved with them because this is a team that went from undefeated not so long ago to losing two in a row now to washington and buffalo so based on what. You've seen these last two weeks. How worried should pittsburgh actually big. There's reasons for legitimate concern here. I mean the defense will the problem at the end of the day they all. The bills scored nineteen points. So i'm not stressed about the defense on the whole he's had some injuries that's going to be a legitimate concern but this is still a very good defense and they are prohibitive favorites still to win the afc north. But i think even before the last two games last two losses there were concerns about this offense. The steelers came into this game ranked thirtieth in rushing offense. Dvr a football outsiders efficiency statistic but roethlisberger was twenty ninth in the league in completion percentage on de passing becoming very erratic deep passer and the stairs basically happened left with an offense but almost exclusively consists of short passes trying to the ball. Out of rothlisberger hands quickly. That's help keep him healthy. Which is great but that offense has one explosive game. Since the start in november and sunday night was not the second we saw the offense struggle in the exact same ways even though they got james conner. They're starting running back back in the lineup. They lost multiple starting offensive linemen to run the seventeen times for forty seven yards. And we're at. The speaker tried to throw deep. He was one of five for nineteen yards with a touchdown and pick now. It's possible the steelers are tired after basically going fourteen weeks without a real by they've had their to buy weeks of course basically taken away due to covert concerns. Remember the one saving grace all year for the steelers. That's they were going. Undefeated was the possibility of getting that week off asks the number one seed in the afc. Now they fall fallen behind the chiefs with bosses in their past two games. The upshot only gives steelers in eight percent. Chance of coming away with the number one seed in the conference talked about last week. That's the only way to get a buy in the playoffs. At this point the stakes happened raised for the steelers. I'm not sure whether they're up to the challenge and it feels like it is only clear that the measuring stick against which all contenders are evaluated has to be kansas city and the chiefs spill. They seem to find themselves in some amount of danger on sunday. Only to escape narrowly against the dolphins and their young quarterback to and tug of lois. Oh after watching. Patrick mahomes ultimately win this game. Thirty three to twenty seven. How did miami put this biggest scare into the now twelve in one chiefs so i will. They did something that nobody has been able to do to the chiefs all season. That's forced takeaways. Patrick mahomes hasn't made any spectacular plays. Maybe this year. Has he did during that. Mvp season his first. Starting your twenty eighteen. But they've been really effective at avoiding. Take ways they haven't had one takeaway in any one given game until the dolphins game against the dolphins homes through to early interceptions to help the dolphins get out to attend. Nothing lead back to throw my extra fake look and dumped it down. Intercepted ball picked second interception up the day of patrick mahomes and while the chiefs runoff thirty consecutive points to go ahead. The dolphins strip mccall hardin inside the red zone to stop possession the second half and then saving howard picked off mahomes in the end zone for kansas city's fourth turnover of the game. Now i don't know if that's a sustainable formula for opposing team's doing from one turnover as a maximum to four. But they were able to get back into the game and the chiefs a genuine battle by forcing those takeaways from an offense. That just hasn't done that. Really aussies
Big Ben among 4 to go on Steelers' COVID list
"The steelers have announced this morning that they have placed four players on the reserve covid nineteen list. One of them is named ben rothlisberger. Whenever i go in and out. I always order the rothlisburger. He's joined by offensive linemen. Gerald hawkins running back jalen samuels and linebacker vince. Williams must be isolated for five days in a soundproof cell.

The Browns are trying a new approach heading into the 2020 season: Being quiet
"Let's start here in Cleveland atom I heard Baker Mayfield say last week last year was total and complete chaos. They had so much noise around the organization. Now it's like a church mouse. It's totally quiet. WHAT'S THE MANTRA? What's going on there with this approach? Well the circus that was in Cleveland left and has gone to Tampa Bay in the interim. Basically, you've got a new general manager Andrew Berry new head coach, and Kevin Stefanski and the noise that accompanied this team last year has quite a quite a bit I think people are more interested in seeing Ben Rothlisberger return in Pittsburgh. The return of the NFL's raining MVP Lamar Jackson in Baltimore even the number one overall pick Joe borrowing, Cincinnati that browns are. The least sexy story in the AFC north this season and so they're flying under the radar, which is a good thing for this team. They don't need anymore engine. Let them win before we anoint the Cleveland Browns and contender and I think that they're very encouraged by what they've seen so far from their team this summer
Ben Roethlisberger got a haircut, and Pennsylvania's governor isn't happy about it

Roethlisberger's recent trip to Norman's cutting edge to get his haircut and beard trimmed following a workout with his Pittsburgh steelers teammates. Now Colefax. Let me just say this Ben? Huge beard? What do you hear about big beards? A are not sanitary. Yeah exactly probably a good thing that he got it. Trimmed off body was in a barbershop that were people
Are Freddie Kitchens and Baker Mayfield Holding Back the Cleveland Browns?
"GonNa go right to the fourth quarter quarter with the browns so they're down for points and Baker Mayfield and the browns run a draw play on fourth and nine and not surprisingly they came up short short then late in the fourth Cleveland at another opportunity with the first and goal from the four yard line the browns called four straight past plays with the last one resulting in an interception from Baker. That is the game for the rams after the game coach Freddie Kitchen said he regretted the play calling late in the game but Baker said it was more than that take a listen. If you're looking blame somebody blame me. Don't blame me of our players. Don't blame any of our other coaches. Just blame me because I can take it all right. So you know just blindly go go rach article and say I must have game up. Go article and say smile faulted. Things not looking like it did last year because it is. I know what you guys are. GonNa try and do is talk about the playcalling they call him but I said executions the most important thing you know whatever whenever we have called we gotta do our job all right Shannon how much blame that does Freddie Kitchens deserve here. There's a lot of the blame because give the office coordinated the coach and he's the play caller. I Guess Bakersfield Dangerous yesterday. Did you wake feeling dangerous. Gear Alexa dangerous lately. He needs to feel the need to wake up feeling danger. Tennessee woke up feeling real dangerous and that they did. Did you know what skipped look. Freddie is learning that that's to wear two hats in the NFL gets a really hard job. That's why a lot of a lot of guys. Just give that up they either just keep the headset on so they can hear everything or they call you like Andy. Reid is very unique cow Shanahan and guys like that a very unique skipped dream to be able to call the plays and be a head cold but Freddie the the thing that's hurting frady is expectations afraid of the head coach last year if they didn't have these expectations but because of the way they played the close out the season yeah and now they add dale they will add alleviate Vernon they they get they get agreement. We've the draft you like who the brow and you see the subtractions in Pittsburgh. Maybe is no longer there. ABC's no longer there yeah yeah and then what week two bengals out so now that really ratcheted up taste so now everybody expecting the browns to be really really good look doc. That's why I say each year in of itself because last year has no bearing on this year and I think the browns players and and fans are starting to realize that Freddie is starting to realize the expectation that comes along with expectations. I'm the head coach because he didn't have a whole lot of experience calling rolling blades. He's never been a head coach so now he's the head coach which means he's the CEO of the operation but by the same token. He's got a call all the plays now. I don't know what the hell call now. If I didn't no but elsewhere Freddie Buffalo Wild Wings Buffalo Wild Wings coat the fourth and now you can't what the hell is that draw draw play on Yahoo. They were GONNA try to fool Agassi's pass. It got eight yards do remedy it was he ended up seven yards short. I was wondering if I was missing something watching. I'm like wait. Am I getting the goal. You got shows. You got nick. You don't give you one. Kerry now was a live. Let's put back and let's run. It is so you go so you got nick who you save or. I'M GONNA keep everybody happy. I'M GONNA get down. Here's Kevin Jarvis if Catcher Chila. It'll be thirty okay. You give make sure one crack please. okay okay scared. We're told you you keep trying to keep everybody happy to win. Games in everybody's going to be saying 'cause everybody because everybody's GonNa be safe because they nobody's gonna be getting their catches and you'll be losing games and you're going to be in a lose lose situation wages and you're going to be a part of their now that Jimmy and de Havilland. They look like hold on Okay John Dorsey now. We gave you everything everything that you want it. You got a quarterback overall. You got all these weapons. Jarvis Landry got a you got Joel hurt him but here's the things when you you made that trade y'all trash because you got the ninety nine deflategate boy human too. We're talking about the guy who had zero Saxon three the playoff games and it has zero sacks against the cowboys and the Guy who took the Cleveland browns cannot protect Baker Mayfield. They haven't for free games and the Rams took full advantage of that last night. What did I say Friday. Baker Mayfield is about to be in the wrong place at the wrong time against Wade Phillips defense offense that Cap Tom Brady and check for almost the entire super bowl. Am I right about you. Skip in another thing before I let you go. They traded their bust of Islam lobby. Get Out I'll be at the end of the day. You can have all the shiny pieces. You won't skill all these cashier that look nice. You better have a guard or to guard the money now. The money right now is six Baker Mayfield. You got a bunch of predate cashiers. You Got Jarvis and he got dale. You've got all that stuff. I did pillows but nobody protecting the money in his sketches for fifty six yards really the impact the game. Do you remember any of Nope. NOPE nope nope no so given that that was Wade Phillips Defense and right now. I think that defense is even a little better than then. Bill checks defense. That's how good it is because it has more star power to it because to leave did a number on Odell last night. I don't care what you say. You know. They'll get loose down on the field one time he had a nineteen yard catch. It didn't do much okay now back to Freddie Kitchens. I'm not sure he's going to last a whole year. I'm just not sure because bag years kept finding coach in the middle of the how I think it's it's just getting a little darker and darker in Cleveland because remember they have to go go to Baltimore next Sunday Baltimore better than everybody thought in there I think five point underdog there are five and a half actually five and a half point underdog so that the game you better believe believe it or the forty niners three and Oh yes they beffa movie bouquet. The next game is a Monday night game in Santa Clara against against the forty nine. It's Elizabeth game and then the seahawks visit. Seok student looked great yesterday but they did go to Pittsburgh while Rothlisberger played the first half right. They're capable of beating the browns right now because the browns aren't very good right now what if they lose those games and fall to one in six what's Jimmy Haslem going to do with the expectations -tations through the roof of them. He already got one coach. That's still on the pay. Roll can still play a huge. I I know you have another guy on the payroll. Just bring somebody else hears Freddie's problem after the game. He's adopted this new. Oh poor pitiful pitiful me philosophy where he just says you. I'll take it all you know. Get the lay it on me. Don't blame the players blame. Oh Freddie doesn't really look like a football coach. Does he looks more like an offensive line coach so he he doesn't look like the head coach doesn't look like he's in charge and after the Games he's kind of admitting yes screwed that one up and I screwed that go ahead just say well. If you invite the media to run through that door trust me they're going to run through it and trample on you because he is now the easiest target in the national football league. You WANNA blame Baker. Can you not really do you want to blame Odell. No not really how Jarvis no hell out him yes. Yes you know who I want to be right now. I build Danny Jones. That'd be real petty. Okay believe anything you say I'm just saying I can't believe that guy number one he could do that. I don't think he's built. He's built wake ain't skill but you know what I think. Cleveland's defense is really good remember that they had four subs playing in the defensive backfield last night. All four starters were out in hung in and did that I mean I guess why they did it to me. Jared Goff's overrated scale. He's overweight did everything he could. CLEVELAND WON'T DARWIN THIS GAME. How many times do you go on the road and turn it over three times and win the football game you tell me it was three to one and turnovers with l. A. Three to Braley won the Dow many times. Do you get away with them. That's the recipe you want. The best recipe the loser role game yeah. Turn it over thank you. They did that and they still won. One hundred ten million guaranteed right Jared Goff my money yup lots of money so back to quarterback. I love Baker Mayfield old. I'm sorry I got to tell the truth is having a hard time. He's starting to lose a little bit of nerve because he Bolton Fast Komo News. I gotta get out of here. I gotTA get out here. He needed to stand in especially on the goal line and just make one of those rows without looking over his shoulder. It's the Ford downplay. He bolts pockets so fast. I know the play hard off the right. I think yeah I think that's probably a dollar and that was that was ended up being a clay that end up being getting away with the thing is is that sometimes these quarterbacks they look in the bubble instead of stepping up. They look into get outside up that skill once you get outside. Guess what you're doing you telling the defense. Basically I got from the Hash to the side attitude rolling to the every once in a while. We'll talk about Lamar Jackson. You'll get away with a bail out with Obama did you. Did you know you don't make that. You'll go broke doing that. I would agree but Baker. Hey sometimes you gotta you gotTa Take
"rothlisberger" Discussed on NFL Live
"That means all, but one, only your Los Angeles chargers have the day off for a team charity event. We however start in Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger. Says he regrets how he reacted to a week, twelve loss to the Denver Broncos last season rocklets burger who haven't throw a late game interception in the end zone. Went on the radio show in late November and was critical of the route running by Antonio Brown. Looking at it on film, I can't tell you wanna call it or not obviously, but you know, he did undercut av. So who knows what would happen? And that's where I was. I talked AB AB. You have to come flat. You can't drift in the end zone because those undercuts can happen. Aby went on HBO the shop and said this about rothlisburger, oh years. The dude called me out. We lose a game. He's like, yeah. AD should have run a better routes. That's the type of guy he is he's still like he's the owner, bro. You through that expletive to the D line. How the am I gonna get it? You need to give me a better ball. And now rothlisburger with some time to think about it some hindsight. I took some heat and deservedly so for some of the comments on that show and especially towards him. He's talking about end, Tonio Brown. I genuinely feel bad about that. And I'm sorry, did I go too far after that Denver game probably? Antonio Brown had two words for the former quarterback, and this is in his response to rock lers burgers, mea culpa of source simply said that to face. Well, Jeremy Fowler, has been along for the whole wild ride joins us now from Pittsburgh, and we pick up Jeremy right where we left off. Well, Wendy, the wheel keep spitting here in Pittsburgh. The drama never ends, and Ben Rothlisberger took accountability. With these four words Tuesday, I lacked in leadership, rather burgers, said, when you miss the playoffs and don't win the division, I guess that falls on me. So he plans to refocus his efforts on getting his team ready for two thousand nineteen and bringing out the best out of the young players, getting to know them on and off the field now. That's the future but regarding the past route, this burger was very introspective. When I asked him, how he was left a process that messy divorce within Tonio Brown. Check this out. It was hard to process because I never knew anything the last time we spoke on Thursday before the last game. We hugged we, we had a great talk. Everything was good. And so I knew nothing. So it was hard for me to know anything. And then I heard from third party that their issues. So I reached out to him many times Semtex calls his oh for the season was over and never heard back. So I could never really find out what was going on. So for me, that's why it was so confusing. I, I didn't know where it came from. I mean the week before was the saints game. Right. I mean he unbelievable game. So I never really saw any coming. I would have loved to have had the chance to talk to him. And that's why I said yesterday, whatever I whatever I did to offend my job for it. I tried to do that in person and talk to him. But he just wouldn't allow to. I also as Big Ben about Brown's characterization that route, the speaker has an owner mentality that he's bigger than the team then said I don't know what he meant by that. So I really have no reaction. But once Brown was traded he decided it's not his style to bring up the past season. A focus on his guys in the locker room now and Rothlisberger pointed to his new contract. He said, I have three years left. I plan to honor the entirety of it. So as big picture goal is to make sure his guys stick together. We've been hitting it from all angles this off season. He said. Jeremy. Thank you. And again, I'm not kidding. I mean, literally, we pick up where we left off with only last time this time last year, we were talking about Levy on bell, and then it became Antonio Brown. Look, you know, he probably had no choice in Bahia mean Ben Rothlisberger..
"rothlisberger" Discussed on First Things First
"Prompting Ben Rothlisberger to say we wanna show we are here dedicated to this team dedicate to having a great season. We are all about each other. Brian does this feel like a fresh start for Ben Rothlisberger? The Steelers up the believe that he certainly feels that way. I think that what you went through some of the things that they went through last season with Antonio Brown. And of course, living Bill being there. This has to feel like I start. This is another opportunity for him. And nothing this is why he was at phase one of the season program another opportunity to show that he can be a leader. If he wants to lead this football team. You guys understand you have to have buy from every single level. And now with Ben making these compass these. Purposeful comments, be dedicated. We're all in this together. We're team he's talking to the media. But he's really talking to his teammates to make his statement to say all those things that happened last year. They're not going to happen. Again this year not on my watch. He wants to reestablish himself. As leader, I think, it's a fresh start for Ben also think is a fresh start from Mike Tomlin. And I believe that. If if I'm Mike Tomlin, I'm having a conversation way before the first minicamp, I'm saying, listen, we have to reestablish ourselves. Coach as well leader as well as quarterback as a leader football team. That's what started yesterday. But when it comes to Ben Rothlisberger. Isn't this the kind of thing where you need to see it before you hear it? And haven't we heard the words before this is seeing it? This is him being there on him. Now, it should be noted that maybe just as a side story here is also hoping for and awaiting a new contract and there's a couple of weeks ago getting a new contract in the NFL one is don't show up to anything. But quarterbacks never do that. The other is to show up to. And to be all in team guy in. So I'm sure that has something to do with it. But the other part that has to do with this is I've never doubted that been rob Berger wants to win that he wants the Steelers to be successful. Now, he might want it to happen on his own terms to a degree. He might want it to happen where he's allowed a level of dispensation other players aren't. But he now knows this team is been Roethlisberger and fifty two kids. Kevin Gobert said, even if they're not actually kids that the if the Steelers are not successful this year to people are going to get the blame. Ben and Tom. Yeah, that's it. And so they are going to have to after a few years of my mind see of underachieving to their level of talent. They're going to have to over achieve given their level of talent due to the connective tissue of the team due to these comments actually being real that. It is one unit of a massive people moving as one. And so this is the this is the start of what you're saying talking about seeing it saying. Than seeing it than doing. Well, first things first they are doing the right thing is far as how verbalizing everything because moving forward. They have to have one common theme with Mike Tomlin with rothlisburger and the other leaders the offense of line who've you seen them signed to contract extension. They have said the right thing. But from my perspective, you don't get a fresh start in NFL unless you change locations. All right. One of the reasons why I've left Philadelphia people might think it was something else. What? Because Buddy Ryan he was never going to trust me, regardless of what I did. He was never going to trust me. And what I've seen an NFL locker rooms we saw this last year with the Cleveland Browns. Josh, Gordon, he came back. They said it was a fresh start..
"rothlisberger" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"Now, I can't comment on whether or not been Rothlisberger is a racist. I don't know. I haven't met the man I've been in the locker room with the man. I also don't know Rashard mendenhall and I can't trust simply his accusation. I know for one thing it's an accusation. That's thrown around readily today. It's an accusation used to. Be the sort of winning argument in the debate Rothlisberger. May maybe he may not be. But I do know this. The Steelers are an absolute. Sixty four car pileup. They are a nightmare. And it's absolutely shocking. How many individuals have contributed to this drama how many current and former players in Pittsburgh are willing to go into the public sphere? And throw each other under the bus in leaves you coming away with a couple of conclusions about three different guys at a minimum three different guys involved in this drama. Let's start with Ben Rothlisberger. Let's start with the Super Bowl winning hall of fame quarterback. To assume at this point of Ben Rothlisberger is somehow blameless in the overall drama in Pittsburgh, set aside, the racist accusations. I can't. Address that but I can't address the overall dysfunction locker room drama player. Players going at each other. I can't address that in a Ben Rothlisberger is clearly a part of all of that. He is clearly as a supposed leader on that football team. Someone who hasn't brought that team together who at least some players that locker room. Don't see as a leader. They wanna follow Ben Rothlisberger is clearly somebody who shoulder some of the blame of the dysfunction and drama in Pittsburgh. You know who else is number two. Mike tomlin. Mike Tomlin is an extremely likable coach it seems like many players who played for him want to he's a player's coach..
"rothlisberger" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Yes. Yeah. I said it in a soon as I say that been Rothlisberger is not a leader. I'm sure I'm going to catch a ton of flack for any member of the Pittsburgh press that follow sports. They'll rip me, and it's really hilarious. How the local writers in Pittsburgh have covered been in covered bins every flank when it comes to Ben Rothlisberger being a leader in. This is pretty pretty simple. It's also pretty predictable debt in the question of leadership. How the fan base has been kind of split down to middle based on racial lines. Now what I might say may I might be generalizing a little bit. But I look at the comments, and I'm not saying this is for everybody, or this is about everybody in these particular racial groups, I think black folks tend to think that been rothlisburger gets to benefit of the doubt, and they tend to feel like Dion Sanders and a lot of black reporters in the national media who have ripped been and of taken been the task. I think a lot of white people think that bin is a great leader in that the national media is being unfair. And you know. I'm not surprised. I'm not surprised at the issue has been west along those lines. I think a lot of black folks probably feel like the media is giving the benefit of the doubt. And he's not being taken the task. And they're not treating the situation fairly or the opposite token, I think a lot of wife oaks might feel on the opposite side of that that been as being taken the task unfairly in that black members of the media, the national media or making excuses for a B so on and so forth. So I'm not surprised. I mean, it's America. I'm not surprised that it sort itself in this way. But I'm here to say, I don't think he's a good leader. Right. But I don't I don't really care. I don't really care if he's a Lear at not. I mean, some of the profile when I look at Ben Rothlisberger throwing guys under the bus on on a radio show, someone a passive aggressiveness some of the lack of accountability for some of his mistakes. I don't think that's good leadership. I don't think that's a those are good leadership qualities. I think a good leader deflects. He. I shouldn't say deflects. But I think he deflects responsibility for losses off of other members of their team. They take on those responsibilities. They put it on their shoulders. They protect the rest of their the coaching staff. Everybody else, and they put it on their shoulders, and they hold themselves accountable. I, and I think great leadership stems from a positive place, not from a pessimistic place. But I think the biggest staple of leadership is holding oneself accountable and putting in the work to get that accountability and perform you have to perform well, you have to hold yourself accountable. And I think you have to protect your teammates, protect your organization and protect the coaching staff. I think that's what good leaders do. I don't think being as great in that. Also, I think leaders conduct themselves responsibly off the field, we all know about the stories early career of being attorney the Pittsburgh community, and we all know about him getting suspi. Four games. I think betas as improved amazingly in that respect because you don't really hear anything about bin in terms of getting into off field issues. I think he's really mature in that respect. But here's the point. I don't really care if he's a leader or not. And I think this Disneyland mythology around the fact that quarterbacks have to be great leaders. They have to be the Lear of your football team. I'm sure there were a bunch of quarterbacks that were leaders on a variety of teams in the National Football League. And it didn't go to the play offs. Just like the Steelers didn't go to the playoffs last year. So let's say been as a fantastic leader. In is the best leader in football. And he's all of those qualities that. I just described the bottom line the Steelers finish nine six and one in didn't go to the playoffs. So let me try to reach..

"rothlisberger" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"When I want to figure out here when I thought it was true are when I thought I had went through. I'm just like it show like they were probably tired of him. And this is what you get for that. You know what I mean? But he just has to be really careful. You know what I mean? I mean tremendous talent on the field. I think his talking has almost overshadowed if for some people disappoint, but you gotta be careful like, Larry FitzGerald Centerman. You have a chance, and I'm not justifying who's right who's wrong. But the caliber of quarterback you're playing for now. And where you can there's not too many of those in the NFL. You know what I mean? So a talented receiver like him goes to a quarterback who's not a throat, or you know, if it just works out that way, it's going to be a harmful because it's also it's Tennessee is on that list. And like really interested. You're not putting up with Marcus mariota. Ben Rothlisberger is. Hall of fame. You want very town to curb is like I said, I'm not justifying who's right who's wrong there. But you just sometimes you have to be careful. Oh, okay. Well, this is interesting. One of the the big targets this this summer for the Lakers. Uh-huh. Purportedly of any interest at all playing with LeBron brings the latest on that. Are you talking about? Oh, I can't tell you now.

"rothlisberger" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Straight away. Yep. That's promo code. K I k one oh one don't stand on the sidelines. This season be in it to win it and enjoy the games that much more when you play at bet sl. Lovin update the poll results if you will push it NBA players be held accountable for tampering seventy one percents. Yes. By the way, the youngest quarterbacks to ever start the Super Bowl time. Dan Marino who joined us last hour. He was twenty three years one hundred twenty seven days when he faced the Niners. Ben Rothlisberger is the second youngest when he faced the Seahawks. David woodley. Played for the dolphins. Third on the list. Tom Brady was twenty four when he beat the Rams in two thousand two and Drew Bledsoe. Also of the patriots was almost twenty five years of age. Jared Goff would be in the fourth slot as he's twenty four years one hundred and twelve days I Marino. Day the day stat of the day. Here comes that what stat of? Also Brady is played in a record eight Super Bowls. That's more than the entire Rams roster combined. The entire rosters played in five. Brady's five Super Bowl wins. Also more than the current Rams combined of three. So, you know, it's watching basketball last night with James harden. Like, that's the first time I've seen James harden, look average and he's playing against New Orleans without Anthony Davis. He was six of eighteen from three point range last night in they they lose to the pelicans. So that's the sixteenth time this season that hardens had at least ten three point. Mrs no other player in NBA history has more than six such games in a season. George McCloud in baron. Davis are those players. So watching last night. It's almost as if hardened looked tired because of the weight of trying to carry this. And that makes sense. All right time for our next guest. A. Rep star in Pennsylvania originally committed to playing football at Rutgers. And then he came to his senses and decided to go play for real football school Penn State after three years of college football Barclay under the NFL draft and launch thousands of think pieces on drafting running backs. He's known for his ability as a receiver in blocker but failed to throw even a single half back option in his rookie season. I'm just saying Odell Beckham threw two touchdown passes last season. Please welcome say..
Ben Roethlisberger is 'clearly a part of the problem'
"Next. Next team president art Rooney. The second said Wednesday that talks have started between the Steelers and Ben Rothlisberger on a contract extension. Big Ben who turns thirty seven in March has one year remaining on his current deal. And let's keep in mind. There's been a lot of drama and Pittsburgh fellas and Tonio Brown apparently wants out lay beyond bells that out the entire season. Not to mention that Big Ben has been going back and forth on retirement these past couple of seasons. Tedy Bruschi still here with us joining us from the Pro Bowl and Orlando I teddy. There you are. We got you got you and all your friends in the background is big and more of a problem or a solution because this franchise feels like a mess right now. Because both he's he's definitely a part of the problem because they no other men in which he's handled things. I mean, again, you know, you you've got numerous players. You've got numerous NFL aficionados that have religiously called out Big Ben for saying things in throwing people under the bubble in the fashion of the quarterbacks. Don't this is not me talking. This is basically reporting what they've said as max is done as many others. If you watch Big Ben you talking about juju Smith Schuster. We should have thrown the ball of him every time you say something like that. You've got to know you've been around Antonio Brown long enough to know, how those kind of things would affect him along with various other things in other positions that he has taken that. We don't have time to get into in the end when it comes down to is that has made him a part of the problem because Big Ben is live by different set of rules. He's a bit flagrant with it. And I don't give a. AM who you are anytime you receive preferential treatment that you are you are playing by different set of rules as everybody else you are going to rub people the wrong way, especially when you consider the individual who abuses, the privilege. That's the bottom line. Having said all of that. When you look at Big, Ben he's also a part of the solution because nobody's perfect everybody makes mistakes. And if you're willing to man up in knowledge that you could have done better in certain respects. I think that would go a long way, I think the thing that the Tonio Browns of the world and others that are incredibly frustrating is not that big been mixed the mistakes, they made is that he doesn't necessarily he isn't necessarily deemed as an individual that learns from apologized showed the pope level of contrition and move forward without making sure not to repeat those mistakes again throughout the years. You've seen a pattern of behavior that has been consistent with him in that he has gotten away with it. If you listened to those NFL players Antonio Brown is one of those NFL player. Here's somebody that has said that. And as a result, you a big band you want to alleviate this situation you speak up. You recognize us where you're at fault. And I think if he did that that would go along way. So he's both a problem and a problem solver in all of this because he's right in the middle of everything as the stock quarterback of the team who obviously has is outspoken, Saddam. Well, we agree and disagree because I think he is part of the problem the solution. But for very different reasons part of the problem because Ben Rothlisberger is like a rich man's Eli manning. He is too good for your team. Just to stink almost no matter. What's going on? Right. You're good. A win some games. Maybe make the usually make the playoffs. So how do you get his successor? There's no succession, I just talked about how you know, unless you're Bill Belichick level. And it's not so easy to find a quarterback when you're not drafting up high. You know, it's more of a crap shoot. They don't have the person there that they feel can take the reins of the team if they're truly grooming. It doesn't seem to me on the other end. Therefore at the moment. He reads a lot of power because when you don't have that. But you do have a talented team. And you have a quarterback who's shown he can still play at a very high level, and we're in an era. That's right teddy in an era where older quarterbacks are clearly protected in ways. They've never been you look the level. Tom Brady is still playing at forty one. Drew Brees at forty then rothlisburger at thirty seven that that they realize, oh, wait a minute as beat up as he's been as much as he talked about retirement. He's still maybe has some years of football left in him. We don't have as backup. So he wields probably too much influence and he seems to at times publicly throw players under teammates under the bus. He's a problem because he's too good to get that next quarterback with the draft pick. He's your solution to the extent that you're good because he's a really good quarterback. And if you ain't got that, you ain't got anything. I'm with both you here because Big Ben has been a problem, and he can be a part of the solution. But this is what's happening here as you're talking about max. The quarterbacks in this league getting older and older and still being able to play past forty. What's happening is a generational gap. A generational gap between the quarterback and all of the younger skilled players and all of the younger players on defense that are ended up being a part of this team and the ability to relate. So they're almost these kids are coming in plan. I mean rothlisburger will have players coming in make sure that have had his poster on the wall or something like that that group as fans, and so how does that quarterback that aging quarterback you mentioned breeze Brady and rothlisburger? How was he able to relate to them and make them feel like still an equal? And as one of his teammates, this is where Ben Rothlisberger has failed has he failed. Also and other aspects where Stephen as talking about what he's calling out teammates where he's got no business when he should have when he's the one making bad plays. Also. Yes, I agree with that. But he needs to learn to start to relate to these younger generation of players because he will continue to get older, and that gap is. Real and you'll see players life Brees. How he still it seems like medicine Brady and breathes? They're old. Okay. How do they still have these close bonds with these young players that come into their teams and their teammates talking about them like they're best? How does that happen? There's something. Character wise that breeze and Brady has right now that Rothlisberger is lacking. I need your help with something here. Because here's what you lost. You talked about him relating to the other players, and I don't disagree with that teddy. The problem is it eight the younger players complaining about him and Tonio Brown is thirty years old. He's been big big Big Ben Rothlisberger his teammate for almost the past decade. And so this is I'm not saying that, you know, the he's thirty seven thirty thirty seven like Big Ben is, but he ain't twenty eight twenty one like did you Smith Schuster? The man is thirty the last six seasons. He's had a minimum of one hundred one receptors a minimum of twelve hundred and eighty seven. Yard. He's produced. Poor Big Ben he's been a primary target for Big, Ben. And yet that's where the problem seems to lie at this particular moment in time. So how do you explain that? And I'll put it up put it simply then because I agree with you there. It's a feeling that I've had with the quarterback that I played with and a lot of the saints and a lot of these older players on these teams that are mentioning they have the overwhelming thought in their mind that my quarterbacks got my back. No matter what that's what I think's not there in Pittsburgh. It seemed like it seems like if something happens the quarterback isn't there to either bail you out off the field the Bill you out on? That's what it is. I don't know if they feel the same way some of these saints and other players that this quarterback. He's got my
Kansas City Chiefs defeat Indianapolis Colts
"We will join the AFC division game between the patriots and the chargers. And then following that. We'll get the NFC. Division game between the Philadelphia Eagles who travel to New Orleans to face the New Orleans Saints. And then the racing report was saying the Sunday supplement and Willie from nine to midnight tomorrow night. So that's your Sunday rundown. Yeah. Let's talk a little NFL little colts with Ricky in Indiana. Ricky what's going on? Fantastic. Brother. What'd you think? Are you? Well, yeah, we're waiting on the Los Angeles Rams season to end because it looks like Zack Taylor the quarterbacks coach is going to become the next head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals. So more power to the Rams and does act Taylor. Get a new coach in here. And let's get this program. Back on track. Because I don't believe it's one of the worst jobs that were opened in the National Football League. You've got a patient owner you've got out several outstanding players you just gotta keep adding to that Ed to the offensive line. And you know, Rick I can live with Devon white because I mean every mock draft see has LSU linebacker Devon white six one to forty. He's an absolute stud going to the Bengals at number eleven my feeling is. And I like the Bengals quarterback. Andy Dalton the red rifle. I think he can get you to the playoffs. I don't thinking he can win you a Super Bowl and a guy. Can I believe is Dwayne Haskins some day, and I like the Bengals to draft a quarterback into Wayne Haskins. He probably won't last two eleven. So you might have to go up trade up and get him. Okay. He's probably gonna go to the New York Jets or giants at six. Okay. And what what I'm afraid of is it the Pittsburgh Steelers knowing that Ben Rothlisberger is on the eighteenth tee of his career what one year max to me probably next year. Really should be it for Ben. They could definitely trade Antonio Brown because he is absolutely fallen out of favor with that franchise. Get a first round pick for him and use those picks to move up and take twain Haskins and. A whole bunch of Buckeye fans will become Steeler fans. No doubt. If that happens. So Ricky, and I know you're looking forward to baseball season, brother. So am I we're gonna talk who's going to be the reds center fielder? You got any predictions for me? Right now. Right. Well, I'm gonna put my chips to the middle of the table. And I'm gonna take Philip Ervin. Let's give him a chance and brother, we will talk soon. Appreciate the call from Valparaiso, Indiana, man. You are the man. Thanks so much Rik in Valparaiso Brandon's in Indianapolis, Brandon. What is going on paychecks for a little bit disappointed with I'm disappointed with the I like the Bengals stupid. I'm a colts fan. And what? Yeah. That was disappointing. They just couldn't generate anything and this this could be at for Adam venit, Terry. It is. I think it is what he's had a great career. You know? But I I don't know if it's the weather had an impact, you know. But I think Kansas City now takes I mean, I don't know if they can beat nor I could be wrong. You don't want everyone account New England out. But I thought we had a chance trickster, and I think a lot of people giving the colts a chance because. Defense is effective. But today, I think they just showed what they are about. You know, I think whoever has to go there. It's going to be hard for if it is New England or the chargers, but you never wanna Brady out. But I don't know. I think this year the chiefs get that stick it to them just kind of a morbid sense of if the New England wins tomorrow to have them get run out of the gym at Arrowhead. I would love it. Sorry. New England Patriots fans, but van I am tired of them in the in the AFC title game. I I am to see it as far as as far as the Bengals go. I I hope I hope they get the right coach. You know? I, you know, I mean, you know, the the Rams seasons. Don't go one. In hope. I wish the best for Marvin. I think he was a nice guy and all time for a change. But with the quarterback situation you were talking about Dwayne Haskins if the Bengals could draft him somehow cut me, they tried the read rightful or. Kind of like an AJ McCarron type deal if he would he would tutor Dwayne Haskins for a year and then Andy move on and make bigger dollars. Elsewhere. He would be trae trading. Yeah. He could he's like Alex Smith he could make a bunch of money elsewhere. But but the, but but groom Dwayne Haskins free year Dwayne takes over and twenty twenty. Andy Dalton moves on. I don't want to hear about what you're saying. Is you don't think doll the guy that can get you over the hump and away? Correct. Yeah. I think it probably win you a playoff game. I don't think you can get you to a Super Bowl and other that great guy. He's a good career. He's a good player. But I need an impact player taking snaps. As far as you say real quick. I know you won't get so much time as far as you see. Because were going on. 'cause I mean with not follow Butler, and because I'm from here. But. Did listen to you? See I don't think there's good as last year with oh, look who all you lost. But obviously football game tonight. But I did hear Macron's comment. He was not happy. But I think they're going to be okay. I guess against they're still NCWA. You probably know more about fourteen in three, and this is a very balanced deeper American athletic conference, and I'm loving the fact that Wichita states in there, and it's bringing back memories of the old Missouri valley when I was a kid, and that was the best conference in the land. And Brandon I gotta run man. Thanks. Yeah. Baby. I mean, I think so I really do. Yeah. They're starting to find themselves in just a huge boost to beat to beat Georgetown into comeback. Like they did. Thanks so much. I appreciate it. And I want to talk a little Cincinnati Reds when we return who is going to play center field for this club. And I wanna talk a little bit of the lineup one through eight man. Yeah. When we return
"rothlisberger" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Are the worst leaders Ben Rothlisberger Antonio Brown? That's it. You see the thing is is that when he went Facebook live in Mike Tomlin is laying out what they're going to do for the upcoming week.

Reheat caught Thompson. Ruggedness shot at the patriots. Those a. You're the head start. And it went out live not while they didn't care because it's never been about the team. It's always been after when skip when I speak to college guys, not speak to NFL guys. This just getting into the league. The one thing I'd tell about says I want you to be selfish. I want you to win the Heisman. I want you to be all I wanted to try to make the Pro Bowl with MVP. But those goals can never supersede that or the team because if the team goal is I I know you'll work extremely hard to accomplish what you need to interview. Accomplish those goals. We're going to beat those team goals in Tonio team team in Tonio Antonio care about one thing his members Antonio, we'll tell you. He just wants to win. He does what a win. But I'd need twelve catcher for bucks two touchdowns in that. Because if I give fixed for fifty down that ain't good enough because I saw Jude you get Tampa one hundred and five touchdown. I can't have that. The gotta move on because right now skip production intolerance, you're going tolerate this because production level is that it was the same thing with teal skip. And I loved his production was high. He was getting fifteen hundred dollars receive and he's getting thirteen fourteen touchdown. But the moment that production slips he gone, but what he's doing is that he's poisoning the locker room because you've got younger see jujubes only in the second year James Washington's in his first year, Ella Rogers is young. That's the that's the defining voicing their meeting room. That's who they're looking at it like. Hold on this dude bucket, and he got seventy two mayor. So what's to stop me from bucking juju? Putting up numbers? Hello. Dantonio. I more yards than in Tonio. He acted like, this ain't got paid wasn't stopped me like that. And getting pain I'm producing because they keep looking at the head coach. How's he gonna react? No, he doesn't react. He doesn't react. He doesn't react.

So you don't you. Do you pans that problem or somebody else? Hey, y'all take it because I can't deal. I don't want to deal with it anymore because it's preventing us for reaching our ultimate this is what is Pittsburgh Steelers are home skip to talented. There's no reason you forth, an offense your eighth and defense and you're out of the play offs, and because of this because of an Tonio Brown because of being because what am because of what Mike Tomlin is Neal's organization has except. Yes. So this story is wearing me out. It's tiring me out because this man across me said from day one do not pay them bad idea. Let him go, right? Yup. I echoed your sentiments I said do not pay him. I said do not pay Odell Beckham junior or you will regret it. And the giants I believe are already regretting it. They're both more trouble than they're worth..

Raiders fans, twice abandoned, earn notorious honor
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Raiders fans twice abandoned deserve much better by an Killian. Congratulations raiders fans. It's official. Now, you are the most screwed over fans in American sports. Oh, sure. Others have vied for the title in the past Baltimore had a pity party. For retiring. Cleveland felt abandoned shame with Houston old time New Yorker is still like to talk about when two of their baseball teams laughed Seattle. Still would like an NBA team. Thank you very much. But nobody has it as bad as Oakland Raiders fans screwed over not by one but two generations of the same family, though, that's relatively old news. Mark Davis announced he was going to Las Vegas in March twenty seventeen this week has served only to emphasize the pathetic situation faced by some of the greatest fans in sports history. It looks like Christmas Eve will be the final home game of the Oakland Raiders. The last hurrah for the Oakland fans who. Who have been treated like dirt abandoned twice loyalty? Taken for granted served a terrible product from most of the past two decades duped into believing. There could be a winning farewell tour in Oakland until Jon Gruden arrived and tore down the team. And now, it looks like there might not even be another season to say goodbye, you can blame the city of Oakland for filing the lawsuit against the team this week, and forcing the raiders hand or you can blame Davis and his minions for pulling a tentative agreement to play in Oakland in twenty nineteen off the table in the wake of the lawsuit or you can blame the NFL which has been using Oakland as a pawn for years. What you can't do is blame the fans they've taken it and taken it and taken it. And now they're losing their team. Again. Many of these fans already have lived through this on game days. The Coliseum is full of twice jilted fans. Many of whom have passed on their abandonment issues to a second generation they. Had their hearts ripped out in nineteen eighty two when the team moved to Los Angeles when the team came back in nineteen ninety-five many of those fans despite having sworn off the silver and black came back for their loyalty. They've received just four winning seasons four playoff wins. And a prolonged middle finger if the raiders had been truly interested in staying in the bay area and this goes back to the late Al Davis. They should've negotiated with the forty Niners to build one super stadium to house both teams. That's the only logical proven solution for two NFL teams in the same arket. But Al Davis was opposed and his son inherited that position, which is ridiculous. You think the giants and the jets like each other? No, but they both belong in a New York market just like the forty Niners and the raiders both belong in the bay area. Where will the raiders play next year? Who knows the university of Nevada in Reno is tossed around as a real possibility. That's where the raiders. Is reportedly planned to take their training camp. Once they are the Las Vegas raiders. The raiders could go to UNLV for a year. But that would dilute their glittery arrival in the Vegas market in twenty twenty. Could they go to San Diego for year? Bizarre. San Antonio one of their previous flirtation cities. Also, weird Levi's that would only serve to underscore. How stupid it is that the two teams didn't find a compromise stadium years ago? Cal now Stanford unlikely though the amount of remaining fans might be small enough next year to easily fit into fifty thousand seat Stanford Stadium. Of course, Oakland remains a possibility probably the most likely solution. And how pleasant that would be a year of nasty acrimonious partnership in a building full of dead mice overflowing sewage. And faulty x Ray machines Pittsburgh quarterback. Ben Rothlisberger said the ancient x Ray machines in Oakland didn't work well enough Sunday, which is why his return to the game. Was delayed after a rib injury wherever the raiders play. Their fan base is sure to shrink the enthusiasm was sucked out of this season before it even began because of the trade of Khalil Mack to Chicago the investment in season tickets is too much for so little in return on Sunday. Despite the influx of Pittsburgh fans. The parking lot wasn't quite as crowded for tailgating as it's been in the past. But it was still a great scene generations of fans who've made the drive for years, not only from all over the East Bay. But also, the central valley and farther to play music and grill and hang out and talk raiders. This is our real game one man who's been coming for years said as he poured bourbon for his friends. This is what I'll miss for the most screwed over fans in sports. They were having a pretty good time.
Steelers fall to Raiders as Chris Boswell falls on game-tying field-goal attempt
"Go to Oakland and lose yesterday. Unbelievable. Twenty four to twenty one Chris Boswell missed an extra point. But the story of this game for a while was Ben Rothlisberger getting hurts volume. He stayed out until they started to lose. And then he goes back in. Yeah. We'll ribbon DRAM in the fact that he was back on the sidelines. Sounds like he was cleared to come in. Mike Tomlin said later that. It was the game flow that the game at the time did not allow for him to return. You know, what our interpreted the bottom line? He went into the locker room to get X. Rayed checked out comes back. He's okay. Yeah. Not a great game for an Tonio Brown. Five for thirty five. Jersey was unbelievable though. Eight thirty three touchdowns thirty three points for juju. But the real story was how would this backfield shake out yesterday? Jalen Samuels, Stephen really, the answer was an overwhelming. Jalen Samuels is the guy Stephen really found the end zone, but he had five carries for four yards. One. Touchdown. Jalen Samuels, by the way, seven catches on seven targets of sixteen point two. If James Connor MRs next week and Adam Schefter reported it's possible play. But we'll find out later on. Then you have to figure. Jalen Sanyo's is an Rb to again this weekend's the
Chargers vs Steelers: Post-game analysis
"Incident. This is sports center right now, I'm on Tony Collins. There was no shortage of controversy in last night's game. Between the chargers and Steelers all eating to quarterback Philip rivers seventh career comeback in a game in which his team trail by sixteen or more points. Let's take you out to Pittsburgh. We'll take this up for the chargers trailing thirteen to nothing in the I keep your eye on right? Tackle Sam Tevi. Let's take a false start. No plaque and Philip rivers. Throws deep to Travis Benjamin for a forty six yard touchdown. He J watt Live Aid at the no com. So in the fourth charges were rally sixteen down three seconds left. Mike bats Leon's for the game. Winning thirty nine yard field goal attempt offsides on the Steelers. So now that's from thirty four yards out. And the Steelers are off-side once again so now bachelor from twenty nine yards. He gets a done Tomlin was asked about the chargers. First touchdown. Guys. I'm not getting into all of the officiating elements of what transpired at high. It was communicated. I'm just not is fruitless it doesn't change the outcome of the game. We're not gonna put it into the ref sans. We need to play better football. Like I said we didn't play we didn't play well enough on offense. Now, let's get you back. I take Steelers sixteen point lead at home at Philip rivers. Engineers a seventh career comeback win to handle a three point loss to improve to nine in three on the season. Pittsburgh oh in three versus AFC west opponents this season. Max was this one more about the chargers or the Steelers? This is about the chargers, and they beat a good team in Pittsburgh on the road. Pittsburgh in the history of their franchise. It never come had never lost the game. They were leading by that by sixteen points. I mean at home in those circumstances the first time ever one hundred seventy wins. No losses and the chargers did it. This is about the chargers. And I've said for the preseason I believe they're going to make the Super Bowl this year. It tested my faith a couple of weeks ago with the turnover at the end of the game Philip rivers at a certain point you go. Listen, maybe you're not just snake bit. Maybe this franchise does it to themselves. Maybe Philip rivers isn't destined to makes. Of course. I had those thoughts not stick with them. When posted gets back. Let's see what's what he was making plays Derwin James making plays. They have stars on the defense. They obviously had stars on the offense with or without Melvin Gordon and Philip rivers guys. He was going down. It piece by piece at times with guys tackling them in the face of pressure sticking his receivers. He was so big time. He lied manning had his time to Super Bowls. Ben Rothlisberger had his time. You know, even the off sides, of course, the charges miss a field goal. And they're going to lose the game. All that. So chargers, right. Like, that's the way they lose sometimes new organization like that a player like rivers just needs a break to get away. What's up break went their way? And they got the win on the road. These are the two they've looked like the most well balanced teams in the AFC so far this season. And the chargers went and took it to them and beat them on the road. This is the charger season story is about them. Yesterday. Score is not about them about. The Steelers, and it was about still because it still has had a twenty three to seven lead and Lewitt. It's that simple to me the charges. Anthony Lynn is doing a fabulous job. He deserves a lot of credit. I'm very impressed with what I saw him. Do. They remain compose. They stayed with their game plan despite being down sixteen that says a lot about the coach their belief in him, etc. Etc. Mave respect for that. They they did it. And when special teams they did it with their running game. They did it with Philip rivers. They deserve a lot of credit for that. I get that. But my bottom line is this you had a twenty three to seven lead on your home turf. A right in those situations. Careerwise franchise wise you like two hundred zero into and you lose a game to the Los Angeles. Chargers. I'm looking at Big Ben Rothlisberger missing a wide open receiver. Nobody within twenty yards FM. Missed a missed that. Touchdown throw. Threw an interception again as well. I'm pointing to that. I'm looking at it. From that perspective. I'm looking at the defense. I'm looking at the secondary. And I'm saying to myself once again, we find ourselves with the Steelers team that is good. But shows us as a season Wayne that is. Good as they are. There is something missing. That says to you. I should not believe in them when it counts whether it's against New England and Tom Brady who by the way, they'll play again, they'll play in a couple of weeks they've gotten the wall leads and the New England Patriots on their schedule. Two of the last four weeks this season. I'm damn near depressed thinking about it for crying out because once again, just win at six straight. But they lost a game. They needed to win. And they should have wanted to get the Denver Broncos. Now, they find themselves as a team that's just gonna win their division. Go to the postseason. And then we got a hope

"Not worrying about what happened yet about what happened in the past with this chargers team. This is a new team, and it's really talented and Joey Bosa playing great. I I don't know if they're better than the Steelers are not synonymous. But I think they can get over the loss of Melvin Gordon four week or two I would say charge back three and a half. There's a there's a narrative out there that Broncos game plan worked against the Steelers offense that had five hundred thirty yards Antonio Brown overthrew, Jalen Samuels on a trick. Play. That should have been a touchdown Xavier grill. Lost a football fumble. That should have been a touchdown.

You don't like them. You hate them. You don't like anything about him? But bending yourselves in all kinds of different directions to make points about them. Ben is fifteen year veteran with two Super Bowls. And he's the quarterback if he was to criticize a rookie receiver for some stupid. That's his job. I did not click into a single one. I'm with you job. I thought you were talking about interception or whatever. But I'm with you compare him to a wide receiver criticizing teammates. He's the quarterback. He's been in the league fifteen years if you hate him because he's a bad person. That's fine. But don't tell us. He's a bad leader. Because of that. I thought you were about to lock it up or something talking. Oh, Oh, yeah. yeah. I want to give you one amazing for this dealer. You wanna make these two quarterbacks rivers and Big Ben since nineteen Ninety-three when free agency started zero point zero seven percent of players have remained exclusively with a single team for fifteen plus seasons. Not totally shocking..
"rothlisberger" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I was at a bar, and they did a side by side comparison, it just almost like a full body graphic of Ben Rothlisberger in case keenum. And I'm just saying how is this person playing quarterback? The toughest position in sports. When just, you know, look at him, and he tries to do some of the things that he used to do early in his career. Now, listen kids. Ben Rothlisberger used to be an athletic freak you could bring him down. He was incredibly old your luck before Andrew luck. He was a guy that didn't even play quarterback in high school. He was a receiver. He was over receiver. He was that athletic. You look at them. Now, he's still trying to do some of the same things. Which is where you get in trouble. Like, I did he does think he he? Absolutely Ben Rothlisberger still thinks he's eighteen but then on the at lebatardshow does Ben Rothlisberger. Because Ben Rothlisberger is really sort of the mutant strain. When grunk goes quarterback. It's not full. You can't go full gronk you can only do that at tight end. But at quarterback Roethlisberger's. He's a tied end playing quarterback. That's a very good description. Nature. I broken guys. You remember what a dynamo? You couldn't tackle them variety thing. He was agile the combination of size and speed Cam Newton was compared to Ben Rothlisberger coming out of college. I mean early on. There was one time where he ran for thirty one yards. On a single play a single play third thirty one consecutive yards. He ran. That's right. He did it. It looked like a skyscraper with legs. The upper half is body. Never moved. It was just legs moving in the right direction. Thirty one yards all in one direction positive toward the first down. Yeah. No does that on dropbox. But that's honestly, not as impressive as the set. I gave you I think almost a year ago that Joe flacco started his career with a forty plus yard run for a touchdown. The YouTube footage is out in folks was people it sight unseen, you'd think he was Lamar Jackson. Flack a weaving through a secondary in open space tough to tackle in his Nike air cements? Some Texas are saying Ryan Fitzpatrick is capable of that. Oh, that's good. It's not capable of the greats. I mean except once in a while like it's magic. Yeah. Yeah. I wanted to ask you guys something based on the conversation. We're having last segment a Scots this weekend up survey ships will be in a half hour, noon eastern. I was thinking to myself yesterday while listening to a truly dreadful broadcast of dolphins colts. Bruce Arians was in the booth, and I've I've been disappointed by the work of Bruce Arians who I liked so much as a coach. But he doesn't do insight or just not he's just talking in two sentences. It's clear that telling him to just be quiet sometimes although there, he's just collecting paychecks. He will throw an occasional curse word out, which I always enjoy it seems as though he's just taking this job to campaign for the Browns job, which is odd. He said, it's the only job. He tastes weird weird. But he he should get back into coaching because broadcasting is not the world for him. No. We shouldn't do you. Remember all the health issues. Stay away from the game. Bruce, we care about you. Okay. But it got me thinking about cardinals quarterbacks because we were talking about Tommy cover Ville. And I'm telling you that the rival toy train of Tommy tavern. Vill-? I was trying to come up with this name throughout yesterday. He was wonder kind. Everybody wanted to hire him. It was the Arizona made the Super Bowl with him if Tommy Tucker villes toy train were to go up against Ken Wisden. The toy train like who wins who wins that in the children's book because wizened you remember when we were talking about whizzing hut as a Yeah. yes. It's weird. You took the end from wizened hunt. And you wonder kid. Yeah. That's a fun. What is his name? What is his name in hunt? You call them wisdom hut. One. No wonder kind late event. Wait a minute. You literally took the end from wizened hot lowdown along. Let's revisit all this. What exactly happened here? I love what you just did. Which what a great children's books character. A coach in a children's book. Ten was hut..
"rothlisberger" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"Stephen Smith show, ESPN radio and ESPN news. But let me let me to just fit a little bit allow me to express to you the alarming level of frustration that I on questionably feel at this particular moment in time. I cannot put into words how disgusted I am. That the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up losing this game. I can't even put it in the words. Ben Rothlisberger four hundred sixty two yards passing wasted. James connor. He's no levian bell. Juju Smith juice to thirteen receptions, arginine eighty nine yards wasted. For two reasons above all else. Big Ben Rothlisberger leading the league in red zone interceptions. Do another one yesterday was Shelby Harrison defensive Lima getting blocked in the coverage. And ultimately Ben Rothlisberger throwing the ball right to him. Now. We can make the argument that it's the freakish interception that been rothlisburger may have ever thrown as he's so L acute it in the aftermath of their twenty four seventeen loss to the Denver Broncos yesterday. Denver Broncos team. That's now beating the charges in the Steelers in back to back weeks. By the way, we go that route. Oh, we can state the obvious. If you watch the throne, ladies, gentlemen, it was an exception. No matter what whether it was Shoghi all whether it was Roe Shelby Harris or whether it was Roby who had. Antonio Brown completely covered. I don't know what the hell big. Ben Rothlisberger was thinking throwing that pass made. Absolutely, no sense. Whatever you can point to that specific inception. But it was going to get in the Senate. It was going to get into sept- it. There is no doubt about that. There's absolutely positively. No doubt about that. Yet despite case keenum only one hundred ninety seven yards. This fight. The fact that Denver didn't have the most formidable run a game to speak of. They still ended up winning the game. I mean Lindsay did have one hundred ten yards on fourteen carries. That's almost eight yards per carry. I got it. But the real culprit and all of this was bit. It was turnovers from Connor. It was a drop touchdown pass. Jay's washington. I mean, I'm just looking around right now at the Pittsburgh Steelers. And I can't even express. The level of frustration. Because you see of how. But thank Pittsburgh secondary looked earlier in the season. They had got things together. They will look at a little bit better. But now of the monster they lost that game yesterday. And I said, dammit, they just lost a trip to the AFC championship game. Now. Now, I'm not saying that laser gentlemen, normal saying that it's a very simple explanation. And you know, what explanation is it's the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers now dropped to what is it a fourth seed. Or at least three seed in the AFC that means Kansas City and New England or both ahead of you. That means to get to the championship game. You're going to have to be one of the other on the road. And I don't think they're going to do that. Now had the Steelers and all likelihood possibly fighting for birth to FC championship game at Arrowhead stadium because the kids chiefs, you know, what if you had home games prior to that one could stand the believe who knows what kind of upset could transpire maybe I'll get lucky. Now, it's no way in hell. The Pittsburgh Steelers oughta forthy chiefs to number one patriots to Texas number three still is known for do. I think the Texas will last no. I take the Indianapolis Colts might catch of Texas, but I'll get into that a little bit later. I'll get into that a little bit later in the end what this comes down to is that the Steelers blew a prime opportunity because they lost on the road to a team. They had no business losing to in a game. They had no business losing. Now for those of you out. There wanna hate on. Mike Tomlin kick rocks. I'm not trying to hear it. Coming into yesterday over his last seventeen games road records, forty fourteen to at one shell up. You wanna talk about somebody performances on a road and how their job should be jeopardy. And it probably is how about Mike McCarthy would agree Bay Packers. They lost all their road games this year. They've lost their last eight rogue games..

But what's amazing about what he's done is he spreads the wealth. And this is really rare for young quarterback. Mahomes is gone on the road twice. He's beaten playoff teams, hall of Famer quarterbacks in Philip rivers, and Ben Rothlisberger gone to put up eighty points. He's thrown tuck. Touchdown passes to four whiteouts tight end a running back in a fullback. That's pretty impressive for any quarterback.

"What he's saying can i ask what can i say so are you saying that rothlisberger response is desired one from the steelers in other words he's the one is steven said talking about oh i don't know i'm not retired i don't know what i'm gonna do so like okay you're not committed we have a quarterback is that them try you're saying that's them lighting a fire so then rothlisburger response is what they're looking for right rossler is rothlisberger has response in my interpretation is one of irradiation and motivation and if that's what they wanted that's what they got because i think ben will be this move will motivate ben to be more to the steelers what i'm saying is that i understand it if the question was would i have a problem with what the steelers were saying what the steelers the motivation behind all of this was the answer would have been fatted no for those precise reasons teddy the problem is it was been rothlisberger that opened his mouth to local radio saying what he said and that's my issue with it because i'm saying he's got some mhm nerve yeah got a lot of nerve saying that that's on the way he's waffled and so the steelers are basically basically saying please shut your mouth because now we're drafting somebody in the third round that possibly can be your successor so now is there competition i don't know if this is competition to ben rothlisberger or not but it's shown ges the mindset of an aging quarterback it's it's part of the reason why there were the garoppolos and the breath sets and the third round picks in the fifth round picks constantly over the course of tom brady's career because it's not only developing and then trading and getting extra picks or whatever it may be it's keeping competition in the most important room on the team keeping you on your real quick before.

"All right let's start with you coach what is what's ben rothlisberger role in mason rudolph developments first of all i think this couldn't have worked out better for the steelers if drafting mason rudolph where they drafted him to motivates ben rothlisberger too up his game and to stay for three to five more years that fantastic now the question is once he gets into camp and men takes look at mason says okay this guy's not that big of a threat or valuation and it's not quite what he expected i think that could change your madly in terms of his responsibility for for his for for the development i don't think anybody's responsible for anybody else's development that the player ultimately is responsible for his own developing the organizational help that what you would like is that ben take step back and think about his legacy and think maybe i can help this guy take over when i eventually do do leave what ideally is a coach ideally what does pin if you're the coach the steelers what has been rob burgers relationship with mason rudolph like you'd want it to be one that that has a mentoring component to it and you'd want mason rudolph so do a lot of things to help ben prepared during the week oftentimes those young quarterbacks can do some research either on the defensive backs or a component of a game plan that maybe the starter hasn't been able to spend as much time on and that he brings some value into the quarterback room into the meeting room that that's additional to what the coaches are giving them to me the story is been rothlisburger and him changing from how long he's going to play that's the biggest part of the story i know this the nfl is not a business that you can do year to year unless you are lea year fourteen fifteen sixteen seven you're drew brees if you're tom brady you can go year to year but when you're in your mid thirties the way ben was and with the type of team and organization support that he had around him and the type of support it is critical that the organization annual teammates no man i am totally bought into this it's important for them to know that football issue number one business besides your family that playing football and playing well that's what your team mates in organization need to know.
