"Showers on Tuesday but it will be warmer with a high in the low to mid sixties I'm storm team four meteorologist by Stanford where it's fifty eight degrees in Washington but I'm awfully glad that are distinguished democratic leaders you're listening to house speaker Nancy Pelosi live on the hill she's holding a news conference just before a vote on a corona virus relief bills so some issues between the White House and house Democrats apparently have been ironed out enough the plos he's comfortable holding a vote we will stay on top of that story tonight and see if this measure passes in the house we have to wait a while for the Senate to get back in town to pass it on that or in that chamber we'll keep you updated new as well tonight Google is going against the words of the trump administration it was announced in the rose garden a few hours ago that Google is building a nationwide corona virus testing website the tech giant says that's not exactly right it says it's developing a tool to help triage people for covert nineteen testing it says it's in the early stages of development and they are planning to roll out testing in the San Francisco Bay Area with the hope of expanding more broadly over time Google also says it appreciates the support of government official and industry partners and thanks to Google engineers will volunteer to be part of this effort the trouble has declared a national emergency to battle the corona virus pandemic the declaration frees up as much as fifty billion dollars to help Americans affected by the outbreak in furtherance of the order emerging every state to set up emergency operations centers effective immediately the president says he does not take responsibility for a lack in testing he says because of his declaration testing is going to quickly ramp up it'll include drive through testing in some drugs store parking lots president trump expects five million tests to be ready by the end of the month across the country people are clamoring for the drive through testing and it's because of what the Atlantic is reporting tonight on why the vast majority of Americans are still unable to get tested for corona virus and two words seem to come up again and again medical bureaucracy in which sometimes forty people have to sign off on a single test we talked about that with Robinson Meyer with the Atlantic who has been digging into this issue so what I've learned is that at this point the CDC and the FDA have basically removed everything but their guidelines for who should get tested at this point there are so few tests across the country that hospital states counties are having to ration them and they have kind of each devised their own sets of rules about how to ration them and so in some states they have rules about only certain people can get tested yes at some hospitals they may not even be under the state or county roles but multiple parts of the hospital of the management a different department all have to be involved in the decision to test a single page that does not like a doctor can say oh you look like you've covered nineteen which is a disease caused any kind of virus a doctor has to bring in forty or fifty people across the hospital to get permission to a single dose what you hear about what we're dealing with and that really sounds pretty out of sorts and pretty inappropriate here is it a good explanation for why some would argue the disease sneaked up on the U. S. well this is the company was I would say primarily because of the lack of tests and so if there were more testing kits if they had been more widely distributed and if there were more hands to do the test then I think we would have had an earlier warning of how widely the disease had spread however I did find that many states basically use a version of the CDC guidelines that make it very hard to discover when this season started kind of spreading among strangers in your area and so many states I would say including by the way Maryland and Virginia basically prioritize testing for people who have been out of the country or who have had contact with a known laboratory confirmed patient and so if you walk in with code symptoms and you know someone else with Kobe or you're out of the country it's easier to get a test but if you walk in with code symptoms you don't know how you got the illness you currently have the states right now mostly aren't testing you and that means that it's very hard to detect when the virus is in what's called community transmission which means it's spreading among strangers basically until people in nursing home or people who are so sick they need to be hospitalized start showing up I can understand why you'd be hesitant to answer this because it's a huge what if but based on what little we know about the president's announcement today promising five million test by the end of the month are we going to at least be in somewhat better shape where you can drive up to a CVS drug store and get a test they say if the president and if the administration of the city see if they're able to spring up fees drive through tests they'll probably be at Walmart parking lots it sounds like it's a little unclear then the US will be in better shape than it is now what I'd say is that we have been hearing for more than a week from this administration that millions of tests for going out that one point five million two million task we're going out that these kids would be made available and what we're starting to run into is that other ingredients you need for the tests are not available the state labs that are conducting a test or they don't have enough labor like just enough hands to conduct the test and so at this point basically anything would be an improvement over what we have now and and more tests are certainly better but the administration's been promising that it is sending out more tests for awhile and and the numbers of people tested have been going up or they've been going very slowly and so I'm guess I'm waiting to see how things pan out okay lantern reporter Robinson Meyer on Skype sports at fifteen and forty five powered by Red River technology decisions aren't black and white the rest of the sports desk and Ben Raby all right Dimitri some welcome news for some NC double a student athletes the NC double a announcing that student athletes for spring sports will be granted one more year of eligibility after their seasons were canceled yesterday elsewhere it appears the earliest the NHL could return would be early April today the medstar capitals iceplex announcing it's suspending all activities through March meanwhile the capitals and wizards announcing today that they will compensate part time arena employees a Capital One arena well both the NHL and NBA remain shut down elsewhere goals masters NASCAR's next two races in the Boston Marathon and all been postponed Ben Raby WTOP support much appreciated Sir ten seventeen on WTOP the full weekend forecast coming up and then we are waiting for a vote in the house tonight on an economic relief bill after corona virus yet stay with us always spring training at the Saint James Washington's premier destination for sports wellness and family entertainment offers programs for over twenty different sports where kids of all ages can learn develop and compete from baseball.

"Key battleground state which help Bernie Sanders candidacy for years ago the former vice president's victory there as well as in Missouri Mississippi and Idaho dealt a serious blow to Sanders and substantially widened Biden's path to the nomination joining us live now as we go deeper as NBC news analyst Howard Fineman Howard it seems the races reached a bit of a turning point now what do you think will Sanders drop out or does he go on to debate Biden on Sunday in Arizona to show that he's still a viable candidate well it's so in some way Debbie I think it's possible that it would be good for Joe Biden if they did debate depending on how Bernie Sanders would behave Joe Biden last night and I thought he gave a a masterful speech one of the best that he's he's ever given because it's clearly his moment in his mind and I think in reality reached out to the Sanders to Bernie and to the Sanders people and said look if we're going to beat Donald Trump we've all got to be in this together and bye I gather that Bernie and his people are doing some soul searching they're about how best to advance their agenda I'm not convinced I I I think it's possible that they realized it'd be very difficult to win the nomination based on the numbers but they Bernie if anything stands for a lot of key issues in terms of healthcare education funding and so forth and they want to press those and maybe push button in that direction and the Barden I'd would think we'll want to go in that direction to some extent so it isn't clear what is clear is that bargains in the driver's seat and after many many years of bad luck in presidential politics his luck is turned big time yes indeed the let's look at some of the folks who did come out to vote yesterday Joe Biden showing strength with African American voters women working class voters and perhaps one surprise for many outperforming Bernie Sanders in some of the some of the college communities in Michigan it really doesn't appear that Sanders people turned out to vote no they didn't and having having attended a lot of Bernie Sanders rallies I can say that the same thing that that brings people in the door to some extent makes some people who don't necessarily show up there a lot of disengaged younger people who need the help of government don't quite know how to get it they look to Bernie is the person to do it but yet as others have pointed out that there are they are politically disengage that that that's why they reach out to Bernie but they they don't always translate that into the machinery of voting I would say they're busy they're so busy trying to keep their heads above water they don't have time or they don't have the civic education in the family structure that previous generations had to learn early on the habit of voting interesting you know how weird it seems last night after the big wins we saw Joe Biden in sort of a more relaxed and confident way he he's he seemed to sound almost like he's already the nominee reaching out to Sanders saying he wants to unify the party but how difficult will it actually be to bring Sanders along in an effort to accomplish that I I think it's going to be difficult for for two reasons number one Bernie Sanders has spent his whole career being the road revolutionary outsider and and and and disregarding party structures I mean technically he's not even a Democrat back in it in Vermont and number two of course is Bernie supporters that's going to be the key and I think the key person to look too is a see Alexandria because you're Cortez she said frankly last night Hey this is a terrible night for us my sense of her is that she is more of a traditional politician than people realize in interested in rising within the Democratic Party structure if Bernie's gonna kid going to play hardball here he's going to need all of those justice Democrats at his side to rip up the party I'm not sure they want to they would they want to take over the party they're dead they're different animals from Bernie so it's gonna be interesting to watch that play within the Sanders coalition our thank you for your perspective this morning we appreciate it any time guys thank you that's N.

"Pittsburgh steeler fans going on this is Jeff Harmon editor of behind the curtain dot. Conway you for another episode of the standard the standard. And if you looked to my side here let's not Lance Williams. That's Brian Anthony Davis. WHO's filling in for Lance Williams? WanNa give it's a big shout out. Lands is now a grandfather yes lance Williams is now grandfather. WanNa give a shout out to his grandson Niger. mims out of its on. CBS Out of the West Coast lands is going to visit the newest addition to his family. So congrats to him. Big Shout out to the new steeler fan born into the cloth and with that my curse tonight Brian. How's it going Brian? I am so glad caught up to the show this is. This is a big deal for me. I in fact the family got me a cake when they found out I was doing the show tonight. Well you know what The old time he said that the last time he told him for Lance we used to do the steelers hangover together. That was way back in the blog. Talk Radio days and it's good to kind of get back to our roots a little bit and so the we're going to get to the title of this episode not right away but I wanNA tease it a little bit and that is our the steelers steelers officially back. It isn't alive Chad. You can obviously China in whatever you like but if we're going to answer this in a little bit Before we get into you where the steelers are going. Let's talk about where they came from now their form for the obviously simple math. That's eight-game halfway through. I want to go through some midseason grades with you or some awards Brian. Are you ready for that. Yes I am very good. So let's go with. Who would be your midseason ofensive most valuable player? This is a tough one because the offense hasn't been good no it it has it in their the twenty eighth ranked offense but for me. It's none other than James Connor and more James Connor the receiving running back Jack but even in the last game when not the less can be played against Miami hundred fifty total yards hundred and forty five on the ground uh-huh so he showed that he was able to go ahead and really control a game with his feet in the run game. The ground game was so much better. I think he's the guy that has kept Mason Rudolph from falling apart which he possibly could have. There's really no receivers to give it to there's really. We're not really giving it to Mason at this point you might but I I really like James Connor for this role. He we know you took the player I was gonNA say. I think that maybe you could say dude injury. jalen samuels by wouldn't go that far. Maybe the offensive line in pass protection because they have cabinet Mason Rudolph Clean That's been a huge factor in at least him checking the ball down James Corner. He's had time to do that so I I'll go with since just to change it up and say something different. I'll go with the offensive line and pass protection. They have a lot left to be desired. I feel like in a run blocking but in terms of pass protection. I like the nose. Go the defensive side this is a tough one because the defense has been really really good so for the first eight Games hoosier defensive. MVP at the midway point. Well you can put it so many places and I'm not going to say who I would have because I don't WanNa steal any thunder. I'm probably stealing your funder because I really think it's an obvious one. I think it's T.. J. Watt I actually think he could actually be a defensive player of the year But there are three or four other guys that I would consider on that defense to. I actually believe it or not if you were saying TJ. Because he thought that I was going to say like Mingka. Patrick I would have said TJ. I and it's basically because TJ watts body of workshop continues to get better and better make his. Patrick obviously didn't play the steelers and the first two weeks but has been a really dominant force in the back end and since he showed up. I think it's kind of one. A one. B would. She agree with these guys. Yeah I really Minka Fitzpatrick what he did. He came in stabilized that that defense when he came in in week. Three had that interception right away that all of a sudden the defense is playing so much better to me. It's not a not a coincidence. There's another another guy that I would shout out and really go back to what you said. I was actually. I was stealing thunder. I was taking Tj all the way. Because that's quite thought was the number one guy so I was just stealing them. But there's another guy that I would throw in as a huge honorable mention and it's Alvin Bud Yeah absolutely. Do I have to call him stud to free now for the rest of the season because he is he got more than one sack against. That often offensive line of the Indianapolis Colts last week. So he's he's having a career year in a contract year quick sidebar here. Are you a believer in in the contract year We'll call motivation. And what I mean by that is the players that show out when they're trying to get money and when they get that money because they will they never really produced after this has nothing to do with the pre right now. The do you believe in that at all or do you think that he's just now starting to come. What is it a tiny bit but I think these are professional athletes with a lot of pride on the line and they don't want that stigma of saying? Hey I got the. He got the money money and now he's just going to just lay back and hang out. I think a guy like Bundu pre has had his twenty six sacks in his career career. So He's actually. He's not Jarvis Jones and so everybody wants to put them in that category with Jarvis Jones up a two this season and I really don't see it that way. I think you know it's a possibility but I don't think that was But all along I think do you brought it up and I actually watched the show the other day the post game and I it was either you Orlando brought it up and I love. This was the fact that I think Chris got this quote that you are quoting Chris. The fact that he He said they're just let me play my game now. And that might coincide with Joey Porter being gone and maybe Butler having more time with the outside linebackers the edge rushers but I really think that he's playing his game name. He's not overrunning anymore. I really like what he's doing. That was Christopher Carter of Pittsburgh. Sports is the one who spoke with by depre- during training McCabe. That's what he said. Immigrants to the difference between two thousand eighteen until nineteen. It almost sounded like Joey Porter was trying to turn them into tactician when he's not he's an athletic freak so let him do athletic freaky things speed rush full rush. And it's working and it's just crazy though when you look at the logistics of Joey Porter's dismissal in Keith Butler. Taking over position that he owned during the Dick Lebeau era and did a very good job. Bob Coaching the linebackers. During that time he people have realized he played linebacker in the National Football League for Seattle. So he's he knows what he's talking about and but now the sudden things have kinda turned around and you see some tremendous outside linebacker production from that group so this tax was going to be a tough one to the next Award in that is most improved player. He would you give that one to. There's a couple of names that come to my mind when I think about the best I would probably. Are we going offense. Defense can be improved okay. So there's one I want to go but for an offense but it's not as glaring as you know. We just talked about Bud DuPrey. He's really improved. But that's not who who I'm going to go with I'm looking at. Terrell Edmonds has improved a whole heck of a lot. You could also say the fact that make. If it's Patrick. Atra came in and all of a sudden in week three. He looked a whole heck of a lot better. He was not as exposed so that could have been a part of it. That's that's why Mingka's so very important but you know I'm really thinking thrill. Edmonds is a much better player than he was even week. One Edmonds is not a bad pick honestly wouldn't have gone with him. My right off the bed. Is Chris Boswell for me. I mean talk about a stark difference between two thousand US Mateen until the nineteen. I mean he has. He's only missed one. Kick this season and that was a fifty four yard her Not sure we ever did get a really good look on that kick that he missed estimate was going to be sure I know is left. I didn't know if there's going to be short as well for did have the leg and he just pulled it a little bit but still nails that fifty one yarder You know just. He's he's turned it around. He's he's back to being a you know the Chris Boswell that we need from two thousand seventeen and like you said I would put bud debris in this category two and and the one thing we forgot to mention as we just talked about two free at length. If you're just joining the show is my. Gosh he's you kind of alluded to this. He's healthy for the first time you've got to remember he. Battle that groin injury. The abdominal injury had a partially torn pack He's had some wrist issues. He's been hurt and banged up. A lot is crazy. Not dealing anything. I knocked on wood for those. That are superstitious. So who else would you put it in this category for Mason premiums. Well the guy on offense that I wanted to put on there. I mean it's really not an improvement for the fact that he's just getting a chance to shine right now and it would be Zach banner the hulk. I guess we're calling the Hawk now because he's been your boy from day one I'll give you. That's that's a guy that I loved. The Lincoln Kennedy Son and Lincoln was the first round draft pick Way Back in I believe ninety one or ninety two of the Falcons but but just a quality player and the thing I like about him is if you see on social media and what he's doing and the steelers community he's just a fantastic guy as well he's he's just one of these bright shining community stars you just love to have and he loves being in Pittsburgh he feels like he has found the hub. Then there's another guy on defense. I'll let you grab him if you want. I think I know who you'd be going with on this unless you take him. I mean I'm are they here thinking of Comfort Camp Sutton okay. I thought he had potential last year. He has played a lot better though. You're right you're right absolutely good picks and I think that there's a couple of guys like I see someone in the live chat Saint James Washington. I feel like he is on the cusp. And he's trending in the right direction. Shing better that's how I would put him up for that just yet so one more sure Mike Helton did not have a great two thousand eighteen. If you ask ask me and I really think he is playing a lot better football this year. He kind of bet on himself. Because you know that that restricted is not restricted but what he's a restricted free agent But exclusive rights restricted. Something like that but yeah I really feel like he is come on this year and become a stabilizing force with what he's been doing. So you've you have some strength on that in that secondary that you didn't even expect we have Steven Nelson coming in. which was you expected him to be? Pretty good but there's a lot of depth now and you did not have that depth before right now. It's good when you have a long list of players that could be included as the most improved player on the team or just an improving player on the team. I Ryan's are turning in the right direction. So lastly who would be your overall team. MVP At midway point at this juncture jokester. I gotTA GO BACK TO T. J. Watt. I think he has become the heart and soul of this defense and even more this team at this point. He's just he's just the most stable force on this team and he's becoming the poster child for this new Pittsburgh steelers. I agree I think. TJ What would be the team MVP. He's becoming coming the heart and soul of the team. You know not just the defense. He's becoming that the heartbeat. So I agree with you there. Too Quick aside here mentioned that a lot of people have emailed me in the past and said hey how can we help the show. Well obviously if you've watched the show live on youtube you can find us on each by searching. BTS's steelers.
