"A pope is an appropriate read. Okay. How about this? The McCarthy Rogers relationship broke. In the loss to Seattle McCarthy took the ball out of errands hands. Aaron never forgave him. And the source said. Anonymous. Oh. You don't want to cross check that with anyone else. This phone a hundred million dollars is just nothing but sources. Of. So is so exciting this time of the year favorite thing. I don't know. I don't know what excites. You more getting a scoop on something or the NFL draft mock drafts? A love those. My wife sometimes will come over and go what are you looking at? And I'm so embarrassed like, maybe guys would be embarrassed. If they were looking at a dull videos or something I'm not when my wife goes, what are you looking at? I'm embarrassed because I'm looking at the colts thirty eighth mock draft, and she'll say to me she's like that's not what's going to happen. That's just predicting and I'm like, that's why it's called a mock draft. And she doesn't understand my love for mock drafts. I my mock dry, don't I that's why we had to go to Mexico for five on that. You don't get mock drafts. No, I understand my jobs. I don't she.

I read mock drafts that aren't true it's hyphen predicting and I also sit for hours and just go Houston Texans Bach draft number thirty eight. I have no life. Okay. I got Ryan Switzer Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver. Boy, talk about a lot of noise in that organization. Let's get to the bottom of that when it comes to costly car repairs.

"Ben Rothlisberger with no aby equals. No Lombardi trophy. It is rinse and repeat we talked about it on the first episode of. Yes, said that the Steelers have gotten away from Steeler, football and Steeler way. You have a head coach that believes in a quarterback. And you have a quarterback that does not believe in Steelers football. He does not believe in a running game. If you think been Rothlisberger the one you saw throw fifteen to seventeen interceptions. This year is going to be any better with no aby. No lady on bail. No Martavis Bryant with the right receiver core of juju. Ryan switzer. Come on, man. You're kidding yourself. You are absolutely kidding yourself. The Washington kid is solid. He not dare yet. They have no weapons on offense. You think this guy that put the ball in harm's way that this is going to be better? This is why I'm saying that you're in rebuilt moult right now, particularly if you get rid of AB, even if you bring a be back, it is still rinse and repeat absolute rinse, and repeat it'll be the same thing. Because Ben is not a quarterback where he is going to protect the football. If you commit to throwing the football forty times or more per game. He's not a game manager, but he pretty damn close. Meaning he is supported by a running game. It keeps his tips down. It keeps the opportunities down for him to turn over to football. It increases the ability to throw play action it protects a defense. That is not very good. Because of all those things, and let's look at the defense out of football, real quick. No playmakers Juan defense or excuse me. You got one plate raker on defense T J watt. That's it. You look at the three levels of defense the front seven in terms of the defensive line solid. No superstars, though, you got one superstar TJ what you got one corner. What's the Steelers philosophy was to steal? Our way was Steeler football. Strong running game strong physical defense their way away from it on a defense aside of football. So again, that's why it's rinse repeat? And that's why the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. So if you've been bring back Ben Rothlisberger again on a restructure riddle me this. How's it going to change defense is still average and don't care what they do next year other than sign the top pass rusher in the National Football League or draft and absolute stuck or a couple of them in a draft..

"All right. I'm not sure if we're gonna get land back. We'll we're going to get through this on the last mother. He's with us or not like I said, I Lance was not able to be around computer as you normally is. And now all of a sudden we're trying to figure out a way to get this to work at least for this one time. So the other news as I mentioned, no more Joey porter. No more James tax in the reports are also stating that the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to be on the lookout to add more coaches. Now, I did not realize this this game from Dale Lawley of decay. Pittsburgh sports dot com. And he stated that like I said, I didn't know this that the Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the smallest coaching staffs in the entire NFL that most teams they deployed whether it's people to can't reviews in the booth. Just more specific type coaches, whether it's a safety coach and not just a secondary. Coach. He have a lot of different options. Aaron in supposedly in what's curious me with these coaching decisions is are these decisions. Based on. These decisions based on you know. I'm trying to think if it's Tomlin or is it art Rooney? That's what gets me. And I don't know the answers that question. No one does actually. So is it he think Lance are you there? Kansas can get him back. One more time. All right. Let's see here. Struggling mighty with this technology tonight's if we might not be able to get him back, but we'll try our best. I think this might be our Rooney to be honest with you. There's there's been some reports if you here in their stating that our Rooney is definitely been taking a stronger hand and the things off season and probably because of the way things have ended the last two years. He's not happy, nor should he be happy. A you have thirteen in three you lose in the first round the divisional round of the playoffs. After a first shown by the Jaguars at home, your seven two and one and two dozen eighteen and then all of a sudden you're looking at other people play in the playoffs. So if it's really interesting to see what exactly is going to happen here, but this team, but you know, what it is what it is. And we'll see exactly how they handle this situation moving forward. So let's talk a little grades. I know that Lance and I had talked about the quarter. Bac physician. He was very upset when he saw the Jerry dulack of the Pittsburgh post gazette gave Ben Rothlisberger believe it or not in a grade for the season. And he sent me a text message saying, essentially, Mandy guys are a bunch of homers. I do know that lands is about the talk about that on one of his upcoming podcast. Which is. Yeah. I said that I said it he said that see I said he wants to talk about how the Pittsburgh media handles Ben Rothlisberger. But I think both of us. Agreed. And if you're watching this live on YouTube feel free to go into the live chat. And let us know what grade you would give Ben Rothlisberger for the entire season. We're not talking quarterly grades half season grades talking start to finish how great it. And I think we both. We both agreed that there's no way you can give. Ben Rothlisberger in a grade this season based on the fact that he turned the ball over so much, and for me, I can't speak for land in this scenario. It's not so much the quantity of turnovers. I mean, considering the fact that he led the NFL and turnovers now was stated in the comments section of one of our previous podcasts that even though he did lead the league in turnovers. It was the lowest one is the lowest total to leave the NFL in a really long time. I did not look that up. But even if that's the case to me is also when you have the turnovers, it's those turnovers I think about I think about the play in Jacksonville that didn't even count the interception that he threw that was wiped away by the flag when Ryan Switzer resigned feared with I think about the Denver interception. That was just so bad. I think act even two thousand seventeen and I shouldn't..

"He's he's just the legend already. I love them. And I'm a big Collins worth guy too. So that takes off a lot of Steeler fans. But for me give me Romo QB call worth as an analyst. And that's the best football. That's a clinic as far as the other games. The double doing game. It's going to go down. Speaking of Chris Coghlan's worth who coined double door. And everybody's quoting it have you noticed on Twitter. Everybody's using double now. Oh, yeah. I've seen. I've seen the nice me. Bears kicker. Yes. Or no the box and the X there. They can't get it. Can't get it in the middle of the box other. There was pretty funny. That was pretty funny, and there's gonna be I'm sure. I'm sure it's happened in if it hasn't I'll be shocked, but they need to go back about thirty years in the WWF with doing the clown. When he had the when he had the I know this isn't PC with the midget clown at the time. So I think that would be entertaining to few bad mean with a double dunk, but you know, this this is what really irks me about the state of the nation state of sports fans. The fact that Cody parkey is in his family get death threats. You saw that. I don't know if you saw Twitter that complete ignoramus just yelling and screaming on the way, I keeping himself or having somebody record 'em just on a rant the F. You Cody parkey stuff from him. Look how. Do you feel now when you hear that you know, that ball's tipped the ball time, and it's still almost winning. So you gotta give it guy credit for, you know, it's kicker's fault. When when the often when the line let some get in there, and and get a hand on it. So you gotta feel a little more stupid about that. But that's nothing but shooting I apologize later. But I think those those jackasses aren't going to go ahead and apologize at all. But Rosie nix had a fantastic re tweet of it when he said, if it's not Cody I hope somebody kicks us guys at. And. And I saw that on Twitter that I'm like there you go. I love it Rosiak slip. That's fantastic. Look, these guys are people when you screw up on my job all the time. I don't have. I don't have a holes complaining about it. You know, we get on Boswell a lot and. Frustrating because as fans we feel like we're shareholders. But you gotta you gotta remember that there's a human element. And if that was your brother or your son or a close friend, would you really want to see them treated that way? I thought Ryan Switzer was involved watching that game. 'cause apparently the best man in his wedding and his best friend is Mitch Trubisky. Of course, they want to UNC together, and I some butthole Steeler fan. Well, so mixed week. You'll both be sitting on the couch together. Watch the playoffs and said something else rotten and Switzer stuck up for his friend and called the guy a bomb. And I'm I'm not sure I out for what all with was typed in there. But I was I was pleased Switzer sticking up too. But that game they had chances the bear had changes. It's a shame. It went went down to that. The only guy scoring points for them was Cody parkey, and they just in the end, they just couldn't couldn't get it done. But it seems that came up with these big plays where the red zone so much and just put not. So there's still a lot of midst make some beautiful throws and. Things just seem to fall apart there. The bet still a team to look at for the future too. I would have liked to team advance Philly and Nick foles, they still have some kinda magic going on. I just don't expect that to continue going next week real quick. Let's do some I'm gonna put you on the spot here. Tony, let's do some factor fiction. Okay. All four of those games. The first one being. The Indianapolis Colts have no chance whatsoever. Going to Kansas City and advancing in the playoffs. Factor. Fixing fixing fixing. I think I think this..

"Mcdonald's contract. Do you realize he's not a free agent until two thousand twenty two. Really? I didn't know they restructured him last August, which I wasn't aware of. But he's around because now I'd like you to go back a few months when you chastise me for buying the Vance McDonald jersey because he wasn't going to be around. And you you harsh my buzz when I was so excited getting that eighty nine. But so yeah, he's actually going to be around. I know he gets injured. I thought he had a a healthier season this year. I don't think anybody's complaining about him. I think Jesse Jesse James could come back very cheap. And by the way, Jesse James with Kardashian comment as become one of my favorite players just for that. I thought that was absolutely fantastic. You know what I what receiver? I agree with you too. I think if we're looking ahead, and we're previewing two thousand nineteen I think Ryan Switzer gets a bigger role. I don't see a guy like ally Rogers coming back. I think they are actually going to look for go in that six three range try to give a big man at wide receiver, and you know, a field spreader like they had with a sober Martavis Bryant, which wasn't very often at all. But I think they'd like to get somebody like that as well. I see what you're saying on edge. I mean, you know, you could always fix something. But I was not really down on this team on Sunday night as much when I thought. Antonio Brown was just was injured. When I had. No, I mean, ignorance is bliss. I had no clue that this stuff was happening. And now we're previewing next season. I'm thinking about an offense of line getting getting older, I'm thinking of the possibility losing some guys here and there, and I'm thinking gosh, we always talk about the window, Jeff, and that window closing because of Ben Roethlisberger will the windows closing and other places. So they have to go ahead and clean it up running backs. You can find a good free agent running back to come in as your replacement your third down back. I don't think they're looking for anybody to replace James Connor as right now. And I think the actually like Jalen Samuels and what they were doing in that game. When the head them both on the field at the same time. They platoon to more was not a disaster. They got a lot of. Receiving yards out of both of those guys. They got over one hundred Roussy Ving yards. And they they had a pretty good game with not a lot of carries at the running back position. So. You can't fix everything. But I think it's those glaring needs that we've talked about for the last couple years corner inside linebacker. Quite possibly wide receiver is what we're looking at and the offense of line. Yes. And so as the offseason continues to drag on at this point for the Steelers, we will be back, obviously every week to talk about one position particular, we're gonna break down the death star. We're gonna talk about me some news breaks. They get signed someone they resigned someone. They're already starting to do some of that stuff with the reserve contracts and things of that nature their off-season ninety man offseason roster is starting to get filled out. So we'll be talking about that. As we go throughout this. Now, we do have some big games coming up in the wild card weekend. This is one of my favorite. My favorite weakens. The NFL I delta the divisional round is my absolute favorite. I love wild card weekend. Because it's when you get those crazy six seeds in there. And you never know when they can make some noise a lot of two thousand five Steelers. So Brian you have. Spreads. Therefore, let's use some picks. Let's pick some game. That's pick some winners..

"I expect also a player to maybe come back vaguer trade into maybe not just get picks that actually get a proven commodity at the same time. So we'll see what's your final team need, Brian. Do you have anymore? You know, what I mean, all of these are I see what you're saying about the running back. I don't want to. I mean, I get it. I see what you what you're saying about the safety. I get that too. I don't wanna be redundant. So I'm actually you're going to shake your head at me because you always do this. When I do it. I think you need an upgraded kicker. Okay. All right. That's. That's got to be addressed. And. I mean, if you just bring somebody in as a free agent those guys fly around all the time. You can get somebody decent. No. You spent the money on Chris Boswell? But you know, if it doesn't work you say, all right? I lost on that one. Admit that you could emit that you made a mistake, and it didn't work. I mean, I'll tell you. If I bought a shirt where I bought something that doesn't work like I thought it was going to it's in the closet or it's in the yard sale. Or I'm giving it to somebody or it's on EBay. You know, I just I'm not gonna keep using some something hoping it gets better. Just so I don't that. I'm wrong. So at that point if you make a mistake on something get rid of it. I'm gonna go with a tight end as my final team need because Jesse James is going to hit free agency. And I know he's not going to no one's gonna pay top dollar for him. But if they don't bring him back. They are really thin that position. We're talking Xavier grumble could be back. Vance mcdonald. I think has one more year left on his deal. Not one hundred percent sure of the check on that. They just don't have a lot of depth. There. Other position is is wide receiver. Even if Antonio Brown is coming back because he will Rogers is a player that is going to be a free agent after the season or now in the offseason of Ryan Switzer ill deployed, well is not necessarily the guy. James Washington had growing pains. We know what juju brings table. But adding to that stable of receivers is never a bad idea in my opinion. Then let's not also forget edge pass rusher that should be up there as well. But pre they might take ways fifth year option. I doubt they do. But still you only have Anthony kill chick low, and you have a LA ladainian and they did Stein back kion Adams as well. These guys that you know, if you find a free agent, that's a rush the passer, you pull the trigger get after the quarterback even more than you already do comment on the other side. So I think that it saved to say that we could all somehow, someway, find a way to navigate our way through Steelers team needs. But I don't think there's many positions where I say. Yeah. I don't think they need help there. The few that I would would be defensive line. I think they're solid. You can look for some deaf players Thais Hawalu possibly quarterback. I think they're fine there as well. That's it. Can you think deals Brian the position where they don't need help? No. You know, what I I'm kind of thinking that tight end is not a glaring need right now. I did not realize this until you brought it up. But I just looked Vance..
"ryan switzer" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"I argue this kind of drama wears a team out. You've gotta have you gotta have a game like last night for New England where you kind of feel in control for three hours this morning. Do you trust Pittsburgh in the playoffs? This morning. Well, I'll just say I'll make one point about pits for last night. I mean, there's a good chance to charge charges. You're one of the best five teams in football. They've got a quarterback who's playing as well as he ever has in his life. And that's saying something for a guy who's probably going into canton. One day at age thirty seven Philip rivers is is a king right now. So do I have concern for them. Yes. I do have concern for them. But I would have more concerned for the Pittsburgh Steelers physically especially now that James Connor limped off last night. Yeah. You know, especially now that Ryan Switzer has gotten absolutely steamrolled two games in a row now, and he's been a good little returner for them. I would I'd be a little bit concerned with the physical toll. These games are taking on the Steelers. Good stuff. Peter King football morning in America on a Monday, NBC sports dot com. Good talking to you, Peter. Thank you, Colin. Yeah. That thing was crazy last night. Came was yesterday. I'm telling you man this league right now is home and so many good games. So many good so many football games this weekend. College pro last night yesterday. I just sitting there after I threw a shoe at the TV because colts lost just one game after another after another Russell Wilson tip of the cap guys. God Russell Wilson, man. I want Russell Wilson video before the end of the show. I love watching imply I love Jimmy Johnson told me yesterday. I don't know if he set it on the air. Jimmy Johnson told me in person yesterday on the Sunday show we were off air or having oatmeal and Jimmy says minute and a half left. One quarterback in the league because I take Russell Wilson legs brain arm. He goes, I take Russell Wilson. I think I would too Russell can make plays with your feet. He is so good. I don't get it. I don't get the pushback. No wrong on the Seahawks. Yeah. They look good. Joel class around the corner. Joining us from New York, his thoughts strong opinions did the committee butcher it. That's coming up. Thursday, Marcus mariota and the titans. Look the their playoff hopes alive against the Jaguars. It all starts at seven thirty eastern on FOX NFL network and streaming on prime video. We got some college football. Let's go to New York City. Joel Klatt the voice of college football at FOX via the coward global satellite network. Here. We go. All right class. Stor the committee criteria? What are the final rankings jolt? Tell you about what mattered to the committee. Yeah. Okay. So it wasn't about your performances or your defense or your offense. And it wasn't about four best. No, no, no. What the committee told us, and what they really have told us for a couple of years. Now, we're boiling it down to like, this is the bottom line for the committee is what are you at your worst? Yeah, they're going to take the highest floor of the year calling the highest floor of the year. And I say that because that's very clearly what they gave us if you were debating between three and six and how do you rank Notre Dame through Ohio State? The only way that you get them in this order is if you look at their floor, you see Notre Dame's floor was a bunch of one possession wins. So when's against bad teams like ball state pit and USC the floor for Oklahoma is just a three point loss to Texas. Then you get to those bad losses for who Georgia twenty point loss to a ranked team, and then a twenty nine point loss for Ohio State against Purdue. That's the only way the only criteria that puts those teams in that order. So that's very clearly what the committee did. I don't disagree with that nor do I disagree with Georgia being fifth and not in. Although I think there a very good football team. Is there any circumstance for you that a two loss team that lost their conference championship game could get in?.

"I don't think Jeff when you born where you live when Michael Jordan played for North Carolina. I was born in nineteen three. Oh, so you were you probably like one years old. I remember that two years saying that the only person that could stop Michael Jordan Dean Smith, the only person can stop James Connor is Ben Rothlisberger and Randy feet ner. That's the only people that can stop James Connor when you feature James car, you give him the ball. He produces this offense goes through James, Connor. He leads his touches when they are running the football. They are much different and much more complete offense. Now, I agree with you. And I think that ultimately when you see them running the football when you see imposing their will. I thought the past protection was very good today. I can't stay Outside Linebackers that they have against them with a rookie, right tackle and Chuck's core. Four out there who I've not played a very good game. He had a lot of help. And that's that's expected when you're gonna get on Miller. But I just didn't understand when you're interior line is intact. Run it between the tackles it with his crazy. 'cause they ran it successfully a few times, they just abandoned it right away. So am I soft on band? I don't know when he throws the fifty six times, I know that the turnovers were bad. But at the same time he made a lot of good throws James Connors case. He didn't get a lot of touches is very small body work. But in my little soft on I'm sure he's always been my guy. All right. Let me try to. Even more to try to drop the great lower. Now. I don't know of you can tack completely on been because we don't know who made the mistake, but how about the two turnovers excuse me. The two time outs used early in the third quarter leaving the Steelers with one time out late in the game which really altered the play calling and really stripped him of the ability to run the football late in that game. I was bad too. Well, one of van's McDonald awake. He showed up in the huddle and shouldn't have been there. And so that's not necessarily a den. What I would say is did did not having timeouts really hurt the Steelers. If anything I agreed with what Tony Romo said where they should be Milquet McLachlan taking as much as they can off the clock because the Steelers defense would was kind of sievelike down the stretch, and they retired. And I get that. I don't think that the not have timeouts hinder them too much. But if you want just to appease, y'all give them a one point five ZV down. All right. Yes. Yes. I yes. I we can move on now. For big, Dan. And let's go the receiving core. Where I think we both agree juju Smith Schuster has a career day. Sadly, it goes for not thirteen or sections one hundred eighty nine yards. None more electrifying than the ninety seven yard touchdown pass in the early. Portions of the third quarter crazy thing is he did this last year against Detroit, very similar situation. Ninety seven yards. He's not a burner. He's not fast. But when he gets the ball he's tough to bring down. He's a big body guy. He has strong arms in terms of stiff arm. He finishes with an average of fourteen point five one touchdown and seventeen targets thirteen receptions on seventeen targets pretty impressive, Lance. We both give them a four, right? Absolutely. He's USC guy hate to give juju four but juju he's probably gonna four and a half. Juju was out there eating and having abo and other side AB getting all that double coverage. He takes advantage, and he gets a fool core. Seven course meal out of it. And ju ju is eating. That's what he should do so kudos to juju. For fantastic shockingly in a tie for second in terms of yardage for the Steelers receiving core. Ryan Switzer was six catches on eight targets for sixty seven yards and average of eleven point two. Don't look now as Ryan Switzer becoming the team's number thirty wide receiver. If he is. That's a problem you want it to be James Washington because Billy to get vertical..

"I mean, I started looking at this RJ you look at the teams and that's what ball league have four, four wins or more. I mean, there's like seven teams in the National Football League rest of them three wins. But back to the point of this game getting beat on someone, Alex Smith is totally different. Quarterback, Kirk cousins, Kirk cousins to me. I thought he was really underrated in look what he's done. A Minnesota means as far as as a passer. Is it an advantage for the Cowboys this year? I think absolutely. I mean, they got the number four ranked defense in the National Football League, and it's a team that wants to run the football. So I really think that this really sets the table is set really nice where the Cowboys defense Kirk cousins by the way is very proud, San Antonio, Spurs fan. So he's a smart guy too. That's why you like into. You know, I, I think this is interesting, and I think the knowing them is a very interesting detail. Jason Garrett, I think you look at division rivalries in a lot of times it split it's usually we went at home. They went home, you know, it's tough. That's what makes it tough, etcetera. But Jason Gertz only lost four times to the Redskins. Think people realize that. I mean, he is he kind of has their number to a degree, and that's because they've changed coaches obviously since two thousand eleven few times when Jason Kerr took over the Cowboys. But and one of those wins was the two thousand fifteen regular season finale when the college started Kellen Moore and that was meaningless. And in fact, that was the last time the Cowboys lost the Redskins that we've seventeen game in two thousand fifteen deck. Prescott has never lost to them. He's four. No, I think that's worth noting. I think that's worth talking about Zeke Elliott missed the last game against the Redskins because it was in the middle of suspension last year. You. Mentioned Dez and Ryan Switzer earlier, that was the game that Dez became the franchise's all time leader in receiving touchdowns Ryan Switzer had a punt return for a touchdown. So it is a lot of new faces, but I do think you're you're right. I think this sets up well for the Cowboys. They haven't won a road game this year. They could do that on Sunday. They haven't won two games in a row yet. So far this season, they could do that on Sunday and that I feel like we've spent a lot of time dog on this team, but if they pull that off and if they get that positive momentum going into the bye week, we're going to be sitting here on the 750 sent woman. They got the titans coming out. They suck. I mean, this team could be five and three. I think it's really, this is a tide turning sort of game that sets up for maker break season in considering going to buy a week and want to feel good about yourself. You wanna come off when you want, whatever you decide to do during that week of just getting some rest off your feet travel, whatever it is it's not. It's always great. The rest on the wind makes everything better. You come back to work and it's a lot more energy Bill and everything, but you look at the Cowboys. I mean, I used to be great on the road from Tony fourteenth seventeen and twenty three and nine. In twenty home, they were fifteen and nineteen and they've yet to win a road game this year. So I'm with you. I think that this game right here is a team because I know you're sitting there you're telling you, look is we need a win on the road. I mean, this is a game that we really really need to have coming off that big win versus Jacksonville. We prove to the world and our offenses not is not dead. We are alive and now we just gotta keep this certain momentum going against an NFC opponent where we don't like each other. We know we had the female Larry with them. We know what they do. We've Sam, we'll see them two times this year and you wanna get one up on everyone when you play it NFC east game. I'm curious about something before we get a little bit more ex..

"I'm gonna go step further and I'm gonna give you the handcuff lock of the week. And so if you don't know what a handcuff is, some people call it a marriage. It's whatever it is. It's essentially when you pick a quarterback in receiver said that you're doubling your points essentially for every completion receiver has is a completion for your quarterback. Touchdowns it's the same. You're almost doubling. I've, I would say that if I'm picking a, I'm handcuffing people together. It's gonna be Ben Rothlisberger, Antonio Brown for a couple reasons. Summer one, we know the Ben Rothlisberger so far this season has headaches, has a tendency to want to throw the ball a lot. That's good for fantasy football. It's not necessarily good for the actual product on the field. We also know that Ben Rothlisberger is probably going to have to throw the football a lot to keep the Steelers in the football game because of Atlanta scores. Like we all think they will like Brian just jested that that Ryan will. The Steelers are going to have to Chuck it to yourselves back in the game. And that is also good for fantasy football owners. Third, then Vergara Julie, poor performance last week is going to be cheaper for your daily leads. Then what he was probably coming off of the Tampa Bay game. So go out, get him. Antonio Brown might be a little bit cheaper, even go pick them up. If you're in the daily leagues tear spend the money, and then there you go. So for me. I'm gonna go the opposite. I agree with everything. You said Brian about that about, Mattie ice and hell. He's a quarterback that should shred the Steelers defensive not disagreeing at all. My thing is that I think this is going to have to try to go toe-to-toe with them, and that's gonna fall in Ben Rothlisberger shoulders. Not to mention then r- office burger rarely has back to back bad games. He had a bad game against Kansas City, followed it up with a good one against Tampa Bay had a stinker against Baltimore. I think he's due for good game against land. So for me, if I'm giving you a fantasy walk, if you're in a daily league, I would handcuff Antonio Brown and Ben Rothlisberger because they have to connect at some point right. Can't argue with that. Okay, definitely cannot argue with that at all. Now what's your sleeper? You gave his Ryan Switzer last week. I laughed at you and then Ryan Switzer ended up getting something like seven targets or some ridiculous number. Now he wasn't like a fantasy stud. But at the same time I was done that he even that much of a part of the offense. So who's your sleep this week? Brian. He had seven catches in PP our league. You'll take that. But yeah, that was that was reach. I'm gonna reach again this week. Gonna reach with a guy that needs to break out. And if we look at two thousand seventeen around week four week five when juju Smith Schuster broke out. So I'm thinking James, Washington. Another number two pick at wide receiver could probably break out this week. He has five catches on the year. Look, Ben Roethlisberger does not have a problem looking for this guy, and if he finds a report with them with the fact that week after week, you've got a guy like Antonio Brown being double teamed. You have a juju getting a lot more attention. James Washington, who's on the field can break free. He can go crazy. You could have one hundred yard game and a touchdown. And if he has one hundred yard game, he's definitely going to have a touchdown with kind of balls that he's going to be thrown to him. They like him on the deep root when they started the very first play script. Acted against the Kansas City Chiefs to James, Washington and Ben could have got it. There. That would have been six right off the bed. That would have been eighty yards. Six. I mean, that would have been fourteen points right off the bat. So here's a guy that I would look at. He's got a, he's going to have that week. One of these days. One of these weeks. He's gonna go off. I say week five against a pretty bad passing defense. Yeah, you're right. James washy. Didn't would definitely fall into the sleep or category based on the fact that he's going to be if you're an daily, he's going to be very cheap. And even if you're in a regular league, a traditionally, he's probably going to be available..

"To me a Google, the record for most targets in a game because Antonio Brown when he pouts tends to get most NFL receivers, number ones tend to get heavily targeted Twenty-eight targets. Brandon Marshall head in one game with Jay Cutler. It was. It was when he broke the record in two thousand nine with twenty one catches, I think Antonio Brown could flirt with that this week, knowing that it's probably going to be a shootout with Ryan Fitzpatrick and his merry band of basketball plane wide receivers. So you're not buying that. This is Ryan Fitzpatrick. Last start for James. Winston comes in next week. Now nobody's buying now. I do think, and we talked about it in the Twitter show. I do think there's a chance that Winston gets the job back sooner than people expect because as exciting as Ryan Fitzpatrick has been, I think it's so easy to forget. He's still Ryan Fitzpatrick. We have thirteen years of may or may not be better than James Winston. Like I. Believe Jameis. Winston is better has shown more potential that you drafted him. Number one. For reason, he's never done anything close to as good as pits Patrick to your with the jets. Really, you don't know. He's been a turnover machine Jameis Winston has that you've been grading on potential for a long time. He's he does a talk about what he really is. Not what he could. He's the backup for now and unless Fitzpatrick totally blows the next two weeks before the team's week five by, you know, Fitzpatrick's gonna get a little bit of a longer run, but I disagree. I mean, Fitzpatrick got first of all, you know, we don't need to judge that jet season, but he had more dropped interceptions than anyone in the league. They certainly had their ups and downs even that you're, I do think if if you wanna go win some playoff games and that is the point, I think James Winston gives you a better chance to do that long term. I couldn't disagree more, and I think that Ryan Fitzpatrick I've seen pro football focus says great at his first two game yet highest in their history through two games. Football outsiders has him behind only two thousand eleven, Tom Brady threw two games. This guy's legit and it's in a lot of credit has to Todd monk and their offensive coordinator receivers are running wide. Open the scheming has them spacing really well, right now the bucks are getting the Steelers at the right time for a few different reasons. But one thing we always talk about get the patriots early because once they get hot and fair enough, that is absolutely true. Steelers are similar. They are nine hundred fourteen in one over the last five seasons in their first eight games of the season twenty six and six over the last eight. So they this is not anything totally new. I know every seasons different, but the takes them a while to get cooking and then they start to surge. So I would not be like blown away at the bucks win this game. I think I wouldn't either, but I do think that the Steelers are talented tank the season. I don't think they take you right even in a game last. I mean, it's even the game last week where they're going up against the chiefs. Ben Roethlisberger did a lot of things that made you think like, okay, they're going to be. Yeah. I mean, he looked great. They're trying to get James Washington involved. This is an awesome Monday night game to have like all the fantasy games are going to go down to this because it's just going to be so many points. And scored. And you could see this being similar to last week where it's thirty five thirty one, something like that. Think it's time to pull the plug on Ryan Switzer who I've never seen, make a play in the NFL out keeps getting chances, hey, game pass by the way.

"And then they cut Martavis Bryant, and this is another black eye for the Gruden regime because they gave up a not a premium traffic, but a solid mid round draft pick to bring were Bryant from the Steelers and with a suspension looming and it would be another think it would be as third and a an indefinite one that could knock come out of the league forever. Martavis Bryant without Lou looming is cut the raiders say that has nothing to do with the decision, but I do not believe that. I mean, how do you come out of that sane? And it's nothing to do with the decision. This comes days after they moved on from Ryan Switzer, who they acquired earlier in the off season to it's hard to decipher a roadmap and Oakland at all in in every time Gruden speaks become almost more confused. It's almost as if when one of the best organizations in the league, the Pittsburgh Steelers are desperately trying to get rid of an extremely talented player who has had multiple suspensions that maybe you shouldn't pick up the phone and give them a good picture. Yeah, this is that was a kick in teeth day for especially Oakland fans, the fans that have been there for years and to know that your last year there is going to be just a flat out rebuild and. Last two years you're you're acquiring players. You mentioned Mark Ryan, Switzer. He traded for him. He traded for Martavis Bryant. Their both gone before they even play a game. I just wonder what, let's say Oakland were on Monday night football in week one and Gruden still the football announcer. Okay. Well, let's say if he ramming his previous John, what would he say about? Let's see. Another coach done everything that he had done this offseason. What would his analysis be? I cannot imagine when he took this job, he thought this would be the next six months. He'd probably be you'd probably be faked positive about it. He wouldn't say the great since he's faked positive. Text, but one of them was already Khalil Mack. It's it's your home, just think of what the Steelers got for Martavis Bryant. They dumped a guy in instead of having this headache who is now out of the league perhaps forever. They have a four year contract for James Washington, who's a not a similar player in some ways, skillset wise for like what a total of two million dollars. That's how good organizations stay good. They have James Washington for four years while the raiders just have a huge cap it, but don't worry, raiders fans and an anybody else that saying, oh, Oakland's going to compete share because AJ McCarron in the building. Gruden said a few days ago that he was not he, he didn't know if his backup quarterback was on the roster. Well, he sends a sixth round pick to the Buffalo Bills. Very quickly decided that AJ McCarron was not part of their future. Speaking of hints, other teams should be giving you. And now McCarron is the number to two Derek Carr. So that is a flurry of activity for the raiders. They wiped out EJ manual. They got rid of Connor cook. That was the that was gruden's decision at the end of the preseason. And now you're bringing in a backup who has been with the team for hours and doesn't know the playbook yet. And you just gotta hope something doesn't happen a Derek Carr, and you have a suspension for Dera wurley another guy that they brought in like their first round pick from a couple years ago, Carl, Joseph isn't starting. It's just it's so much to the point where I think raiders fans might feel differently, but to be expectations should be extremely low in a league that feels pretty balanced. Overall, I feel like the raiders are in the bottom five, never forget the Browns tried to get AJ McCarron for a second and third round draft pick. It's. In the in the good that while they were critiqued because the whole thing fell through to to technical issues, particularly for wanting to give up. It's almost like the luckiest thing that happened that teams moving on terrible news for the forty Niners and running back jerick McKinnon during a practice. He cuts, he goes down and heap the team feared it was a potential ligament tear and it was tornado seal that ends mcken McKinnon's first year with San Francisco jerick McKinnon, Greg, who was signed to a rich contract to come to Minnesota to come to San Francisco from Minnesota and be like a centerpiece for them..

"Nobody would care, but now everyone knows and they're trying to protect themselves. And then again, I think it's one of those situations backs. You know, Parcells was a big believer in giving backs carries in the preseason because he wanted him to get hit and so that they could handle the tackling without fumbling. It was a big believer in that. I mean, he was like a, he and I learned that from him. I'm like, you gotta get these back and they got to run the gotta get hit. And if they don't get into the to see it though, I mean the fumbles in September is always interesting to monitor because a lot of times guys don't get hit enough now. Italy-bound bell. I don't want him hit. I'm talking to both sides of my mouth. I don't want him hit. You know, we know who we knew. It was Sean Lee Shaw McCaw. I don't want him hit. Okay. That does too, but there are some guys that need guys needs to get hit. Yeah, girlie. We don't need to get it. I I get get that that one. one because to me, the Rams are to me, the Rams have to keep to players upright and healthy the whole season and Whitworth and girly, those they lose either one of those guys, it's going to be really hard. Absolutely. And then the last thing news item that just came out Ryan Switzer trade of the Steelers out of Oakland. He goes from the Cowboys to Oakland, not an Oakland very long, and now he's going to the Steelers dealers need some help on special teams. Obviously, Oakland got Brian in there now, Jordy Nelson, so Switzer kind of lost Lou limited role. They would be better slot. Receiver it's going to be understand is he going to replace the ally Rogers kid, and that that had that role in Pittsburgh was. I Rogers, I think, is going to replace him. You know, it'll be interesting Pittsburgh. I think James Washington Pittsburgh knows. I think Pittsburgh Saint a very clearly. We're going to beat you spread the ball out and we're not going to speed. We want to be and we'll see if we can win some of those. I think you know Tomlin Tomlin is obsessed with the patriots in the sense that he breaks down every single game of the patriots every every year he goes through a mall. I mean, he, he understands he tries to learn from it how to handle it, what they're doing. He's upset and for good reason, mid smart, I'm not saying that you know they have any sees the slot value. And so you know, maybe he believes that Switzer will give them that. Look, I don't doubt the Steelers when it comes to receivers. One thing I learned about the Steelers they can. Justin hunter had a great game the other day, like they can take a guy that I didn't think play it all and tournament a good receiver I give. I give all the credit to them. They're really good at it. Absolutely. We will be back Wednesday. We will be talking about hard knocks and some other stories that come out in the world of football. Anything else forget this, be the last hard knocks? I think. We've done three. Right, right. Yes. So this'll be the last one I could. Yep. So it'd be the the season finale playing Hugh? Yeah, we'll see about a Hugh. Our final farewell will be sure to to bless him always, and then we will, you know, knock it out on Wednesday, and then we'll get his routine going. And the football season is almost here.
