"Heel fans. Welcome back to the second. Let's ride. We know what it is on monday or the day after the game when we talk about winners and losers and this week i had five winners and losers. Now let's be clear you're probably wondering you're probably asking yourself at this time. How in the world could you have five winners. I felt that there were players still played well enough to earn in deserve some credit and you might also be thinking eight losers i could have twenty two losers eleven on both sides of the football. I can't. I'm not doing that number one. I can't do that number two. I mean that would be a disa- longest article ever but also it would become monotonous. There were some players that could bounce either way like ben rothlisberger for the second straight week. I don't have money either list. It's a situation where i thought ben didn't play great. The interception was awful. I think we'll all admit that he'd admit that he did admit that after the game. But i also think about. He didn't play poor enough that i would put them on the loser list. So let's go through this. We'll we'll hammer these out. Five winners eight losers. Let's get started with winners top winter. I should have had this individual in the winters column last week after the win buffalo. But i didn't do it. I overlooked and i apologize. Not overlooking this though. Chris boswell deserves to be on the winners list. He was money from fifty six yards out the longest field goal in heinz field history. That's impressive. he's been money in the bank. Ever since two thousand eighteen it was just a debacle of the season. I said this on the post game show. I'll say it here as well. The steelers could have easily easily. Just said you know what in two thousand eighteen he was. That bad boswell. Was that bad that they said we're done with them. Just we'll get rid of in the nfl trees kickers like a dime a dozen anyways. But they stuck with them. Maybe it was for contractual reasons. Maybe it wasn't for whatever reason. Chris boswell has made the steelers say boy are. We glad we kept that guy. Around another solid outing by chris boswell. He deserves to be on the winners list. Next nashi harris stat line ten rushes thirty eight yards but he adds five forty three yards. Receiving any did have his first touchdown receiving touchdown. I've believe those about twenty three yards. So g harris najji harris again the stats don't really bear out that he should be on the winners list. But again this thirty eight yards boy. Did he have to earn him. He had to earn every single one of those thirty eight yards. And i love seeing the five receptions for forty three. The steelers should use more in the passing game. Everyone talked about his dual threat ability and things of that nature. The one thing though if you think back to everyone wants to compare them lady on bell and rightfully so i get very similar in stature style stuff like that but the steelers used more in passing. They actually trusted him to run routes to catch the football. I don't think najji is there from route running standpoint but he certainly capable if they can get him the bond space that's when he does his damage if that's passing soviet najji harris's a winner in this game next winter be wide. Receiver deontay johnson. Here is his stat line. He had nine catches on twelve targets for one hundred and five yards a forty one yard long. You know. I didn't mention this earlier in the first segment but when we talked about injuries deontay johnson should have been brought up in a on a meaningless play. I'm totally meaningless. The steelers are down by two scores. Twenty seconds left deonte johnson catches a pass injured his knee. No one knows the severity of that injury yet. But it's still an issue. He goes over one hundred yards of that catch but boy. Is that a costly injury. If he has to miss any time but deonte johnson played well the miscommunication with ben roethlisberger is still a question but in terms of production he produced deonte. Johnson deserves to be on the winners list. Next winter in. This is a guy that was on my losers listen. The preseason did not play in week one but played in a big way in week. Two robert spelane cymbeline last week. The shin injury leading up to the game and play this week with devon bush out spelane played a lot and he really looked like he was comfortable again. The reason why he looked comfortable is he didn't have to cover. Everyone says well. Roberts spelane can't cover. We know this anyone who watches football watches. The steelers is he's not his forte. his forte is running downhill tackling. That's what he does the best. And even though spelane. I thought got screwed on that roughing the passer call or unsportsmanlike con. Whatever they called it. When derek carr is scrambling and he doesn't slide spelane hits him in the shoulder with his shoulder. It looked it looked worse than it was. But my goodness they they flagged him for a bad foul stat. Line explained twelve tackles. Eight solo tackles and one tackle for loss. Either robert splaine did a good job. He deserves to be on the winners list for this game. Especially when probably up until friday. He thought he was just going to be a reserve player. He gets thrust into a bigger role and he plays well the last winter before we go over to the losers columnist melvin. Ingram his stat line. He had four tackles one solo. Tackle one sack in one. Tackle for loss nova ingram was called just like alex. Highsmith was he was called on moore. Duty based on tj wads injury and. You could definitely see the both of those players kind of kind of winded at times. They weren't used to it with tj water in there. They have a three-person rotation they are fresh they're all able to rotate around without t. J. watt melvin ingram. Now highsmith and jamir jones were called on to doing more and more in that became. They became an issue but nonetheless. Melvin ingram gives his first sack. As a member of the steelers i thought he was disruptive At the same time. I think we were all hoping a little bit more production from both ingram and highsmith art. Let's go to the losers list. This is a long one. I'm going to start off with trae. Turner now we've learned a lot. Since the end of the game about the situation that happened. After the steelers scored harris had his first touchdown receiving touchdown trey turner was objected in. This was for what he spit on an opponent. Mike tomlin was absolutely irate. After this and i didn't understand at the time. And i want to apologize. I'm what am i apologizing for. I don't really want to apologize. I wanna make sure everyone understands. It's people that follow me on twitter. they were kind of giving me a hard time. When i had not seen the video of trae turner spitting. I had not seen the reports. Either and i tweeted mike. Tomlin has every right to be mad because they were two penalties at the same time offsetting penalties. One player gets dejected. And the other doesn't i didn't know the trade turn spit on someone come to find out. At least. According to the steelers that trade term was he is spit on first and then he retaliated. Well you know what. I'm a father. I'm also a schoolteacher and you we always say the person that retaliates is the one that always gets caught. That doesn't make what they did right. That's just the way it works. A lot of times trade turner's veteran. Mike tomlin said that in his post game press conference very even keel. He's not a young guy not a hothead so when he was that irate mike tomlin knew something was up while at the same time. If you're a veteran you have to understand that even if someone spits on you and i understand that that is the lowest of the low. You can't retaliate. You can't put your team in that situation. A reminds me of the search of the time. I believe it was markey's pounds. He's rookie season to two thousand and ten and there was a play in markey's pounds. He was getting kind of getting into a scuffle. After the play and mike maitama employ them to the side. And he's yelling at him. You can't do that you can't do that..

"Pittsburgh steelers fans welcome back to the second part of the steelers. Post game podcast. I'm jeff hartmann senior editor behind the steel curtain. Dot com joining me as always scofield editor. Bt se and. brian. Anthony davis or podcast producer. We are continuing to go through our of ratings. Were grading giving out grades. Zoe's always in the post game. Before we do this. I wanna talk about the inactive list. Roberson go ahead and explain. It does what happened the list. I think this matters now. Okay well and not only that. I had several players that i thought i picked all the correct positions for the inactive list. I just wasn't sure which players it would be those positions and i actually had an article ready to go. I had names in there. So i could delete other names like i'm gonna pick up the most notable name and put it is the headline so i get the inactive list. I put the headline on their buddy johnson and active for this leads inactive for steelers week. One only to find out nine minutes later when the steelers publish it. It's not buddy johnson. It's robert splaine now. They always give it to labrador report and he reports it apparently from the time they told him. Hey this is what it's going to be sent out at eleven thirty to the time. They actually had to turn it in is when they had to make the call with roberts poulain having a shin injury in pre-game warmups so therefore spelane ended up out and buddy johnson ended up in. So that's why it was a roberts blaine some people it's like. Oh this is going to. What's being to the depth chart now. It was an injury thing so they went with it. Don't know where that would put split on special teams. I thought of it right off the bat Kickoff return if that would have been different but who knows but that's how that went down all right. It's good to note because we're going to talk about the defense. Let's start off looking at josh allens numbers. We're going to base our grades off of that. Josh islanders thirtieth fifty one thirst for two hundred and seventy yards of five point. Three average one touchdown. No interceptions was sacked three times. He's a tough guy to bring down. That's really important. Seventy nine point seven rating. Let's talk about the steelers pass rush. I the steelers finished the game with eight quarterback hits okay. That's that's incredible and then three sacks tj wad with two cameron heyward with a third. The was almost a half a sack. Two and a half. I wasn't sure if they're going to give tj half on that one. But hayward was definitely there. I but tj helped from not getting away. Sorry if josh allen is. Let's say tom brady type. Quarterback is going to sit in the pocket or what had eight tax they have lit up the scoreboard data. Stacks Like the rolling rate the pass rush. Grade the pass rush. I should say bryan. we'll start with. You will go in the same order. I thought the pass rush was absolutely phenomenal. I have one guy that i want to. Mention is melvin ingram. The third i think he changes what they can do on that team by having a third starter in there so you mix and match and pull those guys in and out move them around. He's playing on both sides In relief he's playing early and often. He's getting to the quarterback. I thought they were great. I did not expect. I was afraid that that sack record was going to fall this week and it looked for a while that all right it very well could but then they got it going in also not just the sax how many more would had if the bills weren't holding everybody highsmith would have had a sack there. There was ingram. Would've had a sack. There were so many sack opportunities. Okay so did you. What was a great again. A all right. Dave grade to pass rush yeah. That sounds good. A sounds great. I mean how great is it to where. Tj watt comes off the field and you're not overly concerned about it because you've got two other players that are that are also getting the job done. I'm not saying they're both. Tj watt. but what i'm saying is it's not. it's not oh my goodness what a fall off that all three of them fantastic job constantly bringing the pressure they were they were held. I put a picture on twitter. The touchdown that bill scored the offense of teaching what made around the office of live at. He reached back and grabbed. His shoulder was the only reason. Josh allen was not sacked on that and threw that touchdown pass and how that doesn't get called. I don't know that one was to me. The most egregious out of any of the missed calls. But that's just what they were what they were doing But i mean my dad asked me is is the bills line that bad or steelers pass rush that good to me. The steelers patrushev at good i agree. They were the elite. They was an elite performance. By the pass rush. Let me ask you this because you are. Brian socially bryant is david you. You've mind for this dumb. Michael back was asking on twitter. Is this the best dealers trio of pass rushers that we've ever seen at least in the modern era. Think about the pass rushers so we have ingram highsmith. What is there been any trio. That's better either of brian. Dave whoever wants to dl. Go you know what i'm going to say. No this isn't the best. 'cause that blitzburgh team had a lot of great pass rushers you had. You could throw gilded and chad brown in the mix along with the fact that you had green and lloyd just just edge persistent so ask edges that so much that you put them all you want to get them all three on the field at the same time the no. I don't think there's another if you're just talking straight and rushers. Yes edge the no. I can't recall anybody. Yes it was the third harrison woodley. Was there a third there for them. Was it a hagen was was it world's world's was there in two thousand ten You had hagen's in there for a little bit because like but even even then that's not even comparable. Yeah i know this is really that good and being that good and the other two being that good you know. This is just one game yeah. Tj watts on pace for thirty four sacks here. and i'm you know what with them half they would've would've yeah. It'd be forty two tom. You're against us three dollars. One for each total sack. Thank you tom. We appreciate it indeed. Are i give them an a. What else can be said. But let's go to the secondary. The steelers did surrender a lot through the air. Three two hundred seventy yards but boy. That's what the second one attempts though. Yeah you're right you're right you're right you're right When you look at the numbers. I mean pass breakups or pass defenses. Make ahead one g the cam hayward with two ingram with one seven total.

"That are more fatalities. If you ask me. And i'm not convinced that there's line is going to be out there like Just running people over like there paving cement on the highway. No i think we're going to be quick. More quick passes a hope we get it. We get this great running game although if you noticed in the preseason. We're having been necessarily strong running team. Sure we had that great dump off to nause. That might be it might be. It might be that run running game by pass. Yes that left bell type of running game. Am i off base. I think you're right. I think that all entirely counts. I also think if this offensive line were say the twenty third in the league they would be that probably win the division. I mean they go into. They go into the playoffs very strong. I think even finishing in you know the third of four quadrants. An offensive line would be an amazing improvement. I mean i know. Our podcast is focused so much upon fans think in it's just it just hit me now like how opt how big we are on this offensive line versus last year when so many of us were trying to talk ourselves into no-no these guys still god. They've looked rough but you look at their resumes. They got the gastro got bound. See these guys have been here forever. They can still do this. And we were wrong about that and this. I think that. I think that's part of what fuels the over action. Dan moore junior. Hey this guy looks great block and is due in the second quarter against the panthers. Let's keep them out there forever. I think i think we're i think while the fans are very us fans are very optimistic about. I think we have a little bit of reason to start man again. I keep i keep thinking back podcast today. We're like oh no you gotta understand. Don't get ahead of yourself you know. We're being donors were being downers. Look we're going to be the people that pick everyone up. Talk about how they're still okay. Once they lose one of these games particularly its first week in orchard park. Oh yeah yeah you think we're trying to we're trying to bring you back to earth now. Yeah during the season when you guys are all out there being toxic haters. We'll be the love fest be. I won't be waving our pompoms pouring the love potion here ever flowing top bottom line. Is you know you got to you. Got to taint tamper your expectations on this line. Rats dan moore is going to get snaps this season. I think that's percent. I don't think he's gonna get a thousand snaps this season. That would probably be something went wrong. Well let me. We're having these real good long. Drives rousing snaps exit. Run it three yards okay. We've got to move on to the well you know. Let's let's talk before we talk about the hate. Okay let's talk one more bid on the lovelace. There's so much so much love going around. Even the media getting love from steelers nation. You know the media loves to put steelers nation down. And i'll tell you why the reason is is because we have one of the most passionate fan bases out there so if you say something bad about the steelers It's guaranteed that all of us are going to click that article to see what the heck you're talking about every time you know. That's that's where the national media is coming from a lot of times. We we can make a hot take on the steelers because we want that steeler nation clicks. No one's making those hot takes about leonard fournette her about urban meyer. There's urban meyer hot takes there. But the two lions we just saw the lions hot. Take on the lion's you know so the so there's a reason why the media goes after the steelers and it's four the clicks for the views. But hey this week. Even the media is loving the steel. How often are you gonna see a tweet like like this. Let's see this tweet. This is from. Melissa at 'em drizzly twenty two. Oh big steelers fan. She's like nice man. This is why. I've always respected marcus spears from espn. I've always respected. Marcus spears takes on the steelers good or bad in another miked up sports one. marcus spears. This is on the spot. For marcus spears. So you're like. Wow what did what mark speir say indeed. All he had to say was this was on. Espn place big. ben is not done. Obviously. I give mike tomlin the benefit of the doubt. That coach went eight eight with mason rudolph in duck. Hodges wow he's speaking common sense and that gets you big praise on the internet. But hey you know. I gotta say marcus. Marcus spirited the bottom line this. I give mike tomlin the benefit of the doubt enough said okay haters if the national media knows what's up at least one one guy on the national media we have to go This mr spears. This much praise simply for reading a stat line. Read the statistics. And i said eight. I did just strike me. As you're saying this that i give mike tomlin. The benefit of the doubt could be the alternate title for this podcast or our motto. Like what we live by here. Is i give mike. Tomlin the benefit of the doubt. I like it. I like it. We might we might might. I'll talk to brian. We might have to change the benefit of the doubt. Podcast all right. Let's see let's go onto the hate because you know it hasn't been at all love fest there. The one player not getting any love this week. Which is a shame because a month ago man will we fired up on this guy he was gonna save defense he was going to bring back that lambert. Excess attitude on defense and today. He's in the doghouse talking about roberts. Spelane what happened to roberts bulane robert you know a two months ago. We were talking about his big. Stop on against the titans. We were talking about his big pick against the ravens in today man g. Sh-she here's here's the tweets on on spelane. Okay again. This is from at tommy. Jaggi man roberts. Blaine has been atrocious this summer. I would generally genuinely question whether he's worth a roster spot I understand that people are down on spelane. I mean obviously the guy has some struggles keeping up with tight ends and wide receivers. That are running through but man. I don't get the idea that there's something wrong with spelane he instantly becomes a really pretty good backup inside linebacker. I mean now you've gone to a real position of strength here where hey schober gets hurt or god forbid something happens to bush again. Now you've got a not at all bad real thumper in there that can maybe you know come in and get some big snap storing a game. It's one of those things just because somebody is not a star doesn't mean that they aren't useful. Yeah i mean if he gets cut who takes his played. We're talking marcus allen and sees gilbert or buddy what about that rookie body johnson. Who had been on the field if at all in the last few games..

"The pittsburgh steelers played their third preseason games the twenty twenty one season their first at heinz field. And the first one to see almost all of the starters play today we will look at what the steelers showed us and their matchup against the lions both the good and the bad. I'm your host jeffrey benedict. Welcome to the cutting room floor. An last week show talked a lot about the inside linebackers then at heinz field this week we got to see devon bush and new steeler joe schober play together for the first time as a pairing. They showed promise but also showed that they need more time than bush still needs time to get back fully from his injury and get up to. Nfl speed joe. Schober needs time to get accustomed to his defense to the steelers defense and his new teammates. Bush looked a little rusty. Like you would expect. He had a few plays where he approached a gap in the run game wrong. At least one time. He overran a play shumpert for his part. Look slow on his reactions and his assignment something you expect when a player is thinking about their role on a given play what their assignment is instead of. Just being able reaction la- relax employees. These are things that are going to work themselves out. These two guys need time. Need time in the steelers defense and they need time together. They're going to be all right. Now in bush and schober off the field they were replaced by roberts poulain and marcus allen those who played the rest of the game that was the steelers played. Four linebackers devin bush. Joe show bert roberts lane and marcus allen buddy. Johnson didn't play on defense at all. He only played on special teams where he does has looked good and he made a tackle in that game. Roberts spelane looks like he's locked down the job of the number three linebacker after you know. We thought he was going to be the number two guy. He's moved back to number three with the addition of schober. And i like him a lot better in that number three linebacker role. Marcus allen looked good. He has looked a lot better than he looked last season in this. Preseason he's really good in coverage on running backs and tight ends and even when he's thrown on a a you know a depth wide receiver. He's looked good He also has improved at hud. Blitzing where the steelers you know if you're on the running back especially if you're on the running back and the running backstays into block the is covering them turns into a blitzer and adds into the pass rush. Marcus allen is looking good there we saw him with a couple of pressures and with half a sack in this game. I think marcus. Allen is leading the battle to be the number for linebacker over buddy johnson over any of the camp bodies over anybody else. I think it's right now. It's devon bush. And joe schober is your starters. You've got roberts splaine as your number three linebacker and i think marcus allen is really solidified his hold on the number four linebacker spot and that pushes buddy johnson to number five on the linebacker list. Now the steelers generally keep four to five inside linebackers and forty-five outside linebackers for usually right around nine linebackers. Total is what they keep and that fifth the fifth at each position either position. Normally you've got you've got four outside linebackers four inside linebackers and then usually you get one more either outside or inside linebacker. Who's mostly gonna play special teams now with buddy johnson being fourth round. Pick and frankly he's looked good. He's looked talented. He shows a lot of promise he's just also showed he may not be ready for. Nfl snaps right now. But he's not. He's not ready to be a player. You rely on marcus. Allen roberts plane. They're ready. they're ready to be that player. So while buddy. Johnson really isn't one of the top four inside linebackers. He's a fourth round. Pick who shown promise. He's playing on special teams. He's playing while he had a special teams tackle against the detroit. Lions i think buddy johnson makes squad as the number five linebacker with a bit of a redshirt season. because i mean he's a fourth round. Pick any looks good and he looks like what you want to be like next year. He could be an upgrade on both splaine and marcus allen the way he looks right now he just needs experience he needs that seasoned to learn to grow. By the end of the season he could be moved up into a higher tier. The right now. He's not there by his promise. Says you can't really let him go. Which means for me. Seals are keeping five inside linebackers. They almost have to you. Can't you can't send your number four linebacker off the team. you're not. you're not cutting marcus allen. You're not cutting robert spelane. You're gonna keep them. You're going to have to keep buddy johnson too. What stands out to me. In that is we're now looking at if we're keeping five inside linebackers. We're only likely to keep four outside linebackers and three of those are set. Tj what's gonna comeback at some point. They're going to pay him. He's going to be he's going to be back playing for the steelers. Not just practicing by himself. Alexander smith has looked. Phenomenal and melvin. Ingram is a lock. He's our number three guy and he looked really good against the lions which is also allow the steelers to ease. tj white back in if he sits out most of the preseason you know if he misses if he misses the whole season they can still eat him in to game action. Because they have melvin ingram behind those three why highsmith in ingram the steelers have two young edge rushers who are competing and playing well in jamir jones and quincy roce. Now the buddy johnson marcus allen situation. Where really buddy. Johnson's almost locked to make this team as the number five inside linebacker in his all night opinion guys. This is what i'm seeing film. And this is what. I'm picking out from the roster not i don't have insider information here. I'm not claiming what the steelers are going to do. This is just how i when i look at it. This is what i see is. You can't let marcus allen. Go you're not let roberts bolongo buddy johnson. You've got to keep it right you. The ceo's almost half to keep five inside linebackers the.

"His dad key podcast runs. I really enjoyed this last episode. Where he talked about how the steelers have basically been the tale of two halves. I get a team with two has and if you go back to dallas in the hall of fame game steelers played mediocre. We'll say that mediocre to average in the first half and then they play well in the second half and then in the against philadelphia. It was a very similar story mediocre to average in the first half and play well in the second half. so they're pulling out these victories. But it really just shows that the steelers depth is better than the opposition's depth and so now everyone myself dave. You'd mentioned this on his dad key. Podcasts we were saying we want to see the steelers start better. We want to see the steelers actually win. The first half in they did that. I just talked about at twenty points. Scored zero points surrendered in the first half this dealer starters which by the way they stayed in the game a lot longer than i thought they would view think back to last week when i gave you all exactly what i would do in terms of if i was the coach how would i deploy the starters. Here's what i said by new. Here's what i said. I don't have the snap counts in front of me. But still i said the defensive line of the stars cam hayward them. It was up to one quarter well. They played about a quarter. Some of them played in longer. The outside linebackers. Melvin ingram played to half alex highsmith the same inside linebackers. I think. I saw schubert in the third quarter which i don't mind. I don't mind that i had suggested though they just play up to a quarter in terms of cornerbacks in the secondary. I said up to a core minka played about a quarter. I don't think he played too much but edmonds played a lot longer when he blew up that screen. I believe that was in the second half on offense. I said i wanted to tight ends. And the wide receivers applied to a full quarter eric. Hebron he was playing into the second half juju smith schuster got lit up lit up. He hit hard. He caught the ball turned and he got. It was a safety to came up. Made the tackle and he wanted the blue ten. I think he's okay but that was on the third quarter. I'm watching the game thinking. Why is juice misuse or still in this game. What does he have to prove one. The heck is going on. I didn't get that at all. Rothlisberger played three drives. I had suggested it to. I'm not shocked that he played three. Considering the first drive was essentially a three and out. Yes it was a three and out but it was the chew chor false. Start to start the game and then it finished with the eric dropped. I'll get into all that a little bit later in the second. Half an allergy harris played about a quarter which was expected the offensive line again. I've exactly interest credited for twelve snaps. That i saw and so he didn't play a bunch that could be assigned for concern if you're thinking he's only played twelve snaps his preseason. He didn't play in the previous two weeks. So if you'll only played twelve snaps is he can be ready for a full game or are they going to supplement him. Dan more to get him acclimated. I don't know that's something to watch by the way but still if you look at what i suggested. There were a lot of positions at the steelers. Went above. And beyond what i suggested and i thought that some of the things that i was suggesting was a little aggressive but when i said the offensive line could play up to a half. I'm thinking there's no way they're gonna play those guys for an entire half and yet kendra greene was in there for the whole first half. I'm not mad. But the one thing that i do think that's going to happen when we're talking about the starters and things like that. The one thing i can see. Is that the pittsburgh. Steelers are not gonna play a lot of their starters. The next week friday night they go to carolina to finish up the preseason in week three. And that's it and i don't think they're going to play ben rothlisberger. I would be stunned. I think this is going to be a dwayne haskins slash joshua dobbs mason rudolph game I i don't think there's going to be a lot of starters playing at all. It just had that field where they were getting everyone that they felt wanted or needed to get repetitions. Plenty of reps Something that we talked about on the slack channel was where was buddy johnson. He didn't play based on the fact that they gave spelane in marcus allen almost the entire second half as the inside linebacker do in. My guess is that they want to see what they have they want to see. You know marcus allen is he'd have a spot on the team does he have a role whereas he just a special teams guy. 'cause it he's just a special teams. Do you need a waste roster spot on him. That's probably what they're trying to figure out. But we didn't get to see a lot of guy like buddy johnson so And we saw a lot of again spelane issues and coverage not shocked. That's nothing new. The steelers probably going to really empty their benches next week so keep that keep on the lookout for that. I guess the one thing that also bothers me about the game so rothlisberger comes out of just mentioned the first drive three plays punt great punt by presley arvind by the way fifty yard boomer. Great hang time one to two yard return. That's what i love to see but still there were like. Oh there we go again here. We go again whether they were arguing about the prisoner penalty the inability to run the ball drop by iran. And i guess kind of ask the question. I want to ask the fans of questions. What exactly are you expecting. In what exactly do you want. If you ask me and i think anyone that watched the game even if you watched it and replay if you want the game the one i can't get through. What what more do you want so yeah. The first drive wasn't pretty. It started poorly. It ended poorly great punt by big press and then the defense gets the ball back and they score boom toogood drives right down. The field finished with pat fryer touchdowns rothlisberger day is done. If you ask me or if you would ask me. Hey jeff ben's gonna play on saturday night. He's gonna finish with three drives he's gonna two scoring drives is clean like no sacks. Will you happy with that i say. Yeah that's that's a good starting point for this team and the offense and mad candidate system. Let's keep our expectations for the preseason where they should be in. That is no injuries in staying away from the big injury. That is you know keeping ben operate and all those things. It's really really important that we all understand that. It's not going to be perfect. It's never going to be perfect but at the same time. Some people's expectations just seem like they're through the roof for these players. First time on the field. The last thing i wanna talk beverly goodman refers break. After last night's. I'm sorry not lese saturday nights. I keep thinking the game on sunday after saturday nights performance. Does it change your outlook for the twenty twenty one season in this has nothing to do with the wind is about the starters and how they played in. Let's keep in mind. Also that on the defensive side of the ball they were still without steph onto instill that. Tj watt so. If you're wondering. The defense was kind of mediocre at times. He didn't like something they're still not at one hundred percent in terms of every single player being available so with that in mind. Does it change. Your outlook does it. Change your outlook. And so i actually went onto twitter and i asked my followers. I said so in your opinion.
"spelane" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Same were the players involved and their personalities and how they on the team and all that stuff are involved a you can just sit there and look at their fit They would have been better off switching. Vince williams and joe schubert because joe chauve is a better fit in my opinion to be next to devin bush whereas what they wanted was more of a vince williams next two miles jack. So that gives you an idea. Why joe schubert is a great pickup for the dealers but also not the biggest loss for the jaguars because he didn't fit what they needed. So who is joe. Show over whether let's let's take a look at it real quick right Job has played a lot. He's been to a pro bowl and he's good across the board. There's not a lot of weaknesses when you look at his physical profile right when you look at his size his speed agility if you go back to the combine and look at those numbers. He's remarkably similar to roberts fillet. He's the same height they're roughly the same speed agility He's he was bigger. Then spelane coming out. When roberts plane came out of college he basically really needed hit an nfl weight room. And he'd right. So the difference. Between shelbert and roberts d'alene physically and their athleticism is very small schober. It's a bit heavier on his frame. Still i believe now than than Robert spelane is and that helps him in the run defense when you look at his film and you look at his stats. He reminds me of robert splaine. Just a little stouter against the run partly because he's a little bigger right if you look at their coverage stacks even if you look at their coverage stats from last season okay. Schober played a lot more then. Spelane did He was on the field for five hundred coverage snaps. Okay all this just just a disclaimer. All of these all these stats come from sports info info solutions Through their data hub tool. It's a free tool on the web. You can look that up but Joe show was on the field for five hundred coverage snaps where he wasn't rushing right where he was in coverage he was talking to forty. Two times gave twenty eight completions. Two hundred ninety three yards Came away with three interceptions. And one defended pass roberts blame played significantly less. He was on the field for one hundred. Fifty eight coverage snaps was targeted. Twenty three times gave up ten completions. For one hundred seventy yards had one interception three defended passes. Okay what does that mean. Well we can start with Robbers lane was targeted. Fourteen point six percent of his time on the field. Joe schubert eight point four percent us lane only gave up four point six five yards per target whereas joe shelbert gave up six point. Nine seven They both gave up right around ten yards per completion Splaine just had a much. Lower completion percentage against the shelbert dead. If you combine all of that you look at the non of yards. They gave up per cover. Snap roberts plane is point. Six seven yards cover. Snap joe schober is point. Five nine a little difference not ally there And spelane got two more passes went his way. He had one interception in roughly one third the snaps that joe schober got three but explain defended three other passes whereas joe schubert got to three hundred options and only defended so he both defended four passes. Which means blaine had a much. Higher percentage of targets that went his way that he enter the he. He broke up that he actually defected. Another part of splaine game that is considered one of his best attributes is his blitzing right. He does the. Ceo's call hug blitzing where he's on a linebacker that light or he's where he's a linebacker covering running back in man that running backstays in the block. He transitions into a blitzer. It's also the steelers deal with play action if you watch a play. Action pass and roberts is made up on the running back the minute. It looks like a play act like it looks like iran. He is charging that running back. He's going right for him and when he sees at the play action pass. He's still going for that running back. He's still going and they have to break off into coverage if the runningback changes routes Or if the running back turns to like help block someone else you blitz the quarterback if they turn him block you. Then you're match. You know you try. Beat him in and get in there. But that is how the steelers negate extra blockers when you keep an extra blockers to help block. T. j. watt cameron heyward steph onto it by debris alex smith when when you keep an extra guys to block those guys roberts blamed roberts d'alene rushed on fifteen point one percent of pass coverage of a pass plays. He was in on and he had an impressive. I mean ridiculously impressive. Forty two point nine percent treasury. That's incredible when he did a hug. Litz when he was that guy adding onto the blitz. he got pressure schober last year. rushed around eight percent of past about the past place and had a really good twenty three point three percent pressure rate. That's good splaine's better. So in coverage shelbert is a more proven a more reliable guy. The roberts spelane but if you look at joe schober and you look at roberts fling when he before his injury when he was playing his best. Football of two thousand twenty. You're talking about a very similar player. You're getting a very similar player again. Joe show bert is proven. He's done this year in year out and you may have heard The seals are talking about him wearing the green dot calling the defense. He's that guy that you want calling the defense before like. Oh does that mean devon bush. No it just means. This guy is better at devon bush than that specific skill. call the defense colin adjustment. Seen what the offense is doing. He's better than devon bush at that specific skill and really if he's better than he should do it right. Whoever's the best at it should do it if he's better than bush at that then yeah don't why would you have bush do it. Just because you're like oh bush was are. He's our number one linebacker. Well he's still our number one linebacker. Just joe chauffeur's gonna call the defense.
"spelane" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"The curtain subscribe. Follow so that you don't miss a thing. Things got heated though on saturday based on the fact that they had the steelers their first training camp scuffle rookie fourth round. Pick from texas. Am dan moore junior. Big dan as they call him. No not not. The former big danny used to be the steelers he got into it with isaiah bugs and also cam hayward on consecutive plays outside of the fact that if i were giving dan more some advice i would say. Hey maybe pick who. You're gonna fight a little bit better not so much bugs. But i wouldn't want to get into a scuffle with cam haven. We'll put it that way. But dan moore junior a lot of people that when he they drafted it and he was drafted by. The steelers felt the more lacked that tenacity that he lacked that Really the ability to be that hard nosed. Just get after a type of offensive lineman. Well maybe he's proving to the coaching staff that that's wrong. Maybe he's proving the he is more than capable of doing just that and so maybe this is the first step for a young player just trying to make a name for himself in the national football league. That was not the only play made. There was no worthy robert. Spelane proved that he can do more than just hit. He had a beautiful interception of mason. Rudolph a one handed interception on a pass for mason for ray ray mcleod. It looks like explain. Is going to be the inside. Linebacker next to devon bush and so far so good for spelane. Navy being a starter. After vince williams retirement the offensive line for the steelers was rather beat up. Kendra greene was given the day off for a personal matter. Coach tomlin said it was excused. Bj finney jc has now are. They were both injured but they left under their own power. Everything seems to be pretty minor. Speaking of injuries of made this is not really injured related but then office was given the day off today And so you can go ahead and get out the pitchforks and torches and people get so mad when rothlisberger sits out any practices whether it's training camp preseason or regular season But this deal is going to get a better. Look at mason rudolph twain haskins and joshua dobbs marco. Bali of the athletic pointed out that rothlisberger had the day off at his typical for years. Now they've had him go one full day one day. That's a half day which was friday and then a full day off. During training camps today was the third day he should be back on sunday before. The players had the day off on monday Melvin ingram was making a lot of news today. He spoke with the media after practice. But also it was noted that melvin ingram was lining up multiple multiple spots and positions on the defense He obviously can rush from the outside. He'd been outside linebackers since he was drafted but he also was a standup rusher over the a and b gaffes of on the offensive line. He is someone that can play inside and outside and ingram said whatever the steelers asked him to do. He'll do it and if that's the case obviously he'll do it. Kevin dodson is a player that has been out because of injury something minor in approved to be minor based on the fact that he has not returned team activities but he was working out today at a helmet for the first time and it looks like he just knows some type of tweet. I think my thomma might have used that word. And he is listed as a starting left guard on the initial roster so hopefully kevin dots and can make his way. Back more from melvin ingram He spoke with the media and he talked about his overall love for the game. Football sit his body feels great a lot of fans myself included or wondering. Is he heard Know he's had a history of injuries in the past He's gonna he had an injury last year. It's part of the game physical sport. He said he's he's not one hundred percent. He's two hundred healthy. I'm not sure how that works. But that's exactly what he said Also from melvin ingram. He was asked a question. Or i guess it was more of a statement and he interrupted the reporter. They said you've got a james harrison built. He said no. I've got a melvin build. So he doesn't wanna be compared to james harrison He's his own man for sure he was also asked. Why is he wearing the number eight. He wore fifty four when he was at the chargers. He said that he Where's eight because he was number forty four in highschool and obviously in of also for kobe. Bryant is a number Other than that. The pittsburgh steelers You know it was a workout. Where the definitely. The physicality is ramping up. They have to get ready for the hall of fame game. That's when the camp scuffle start That's when you start to see the pads coming on the pads officially be worn and hitting while be happening next week. That'll be the first live practice at heinz field. And i'm sure that the fans that are going to be in attendance for those live practices cannot wait to hear the pads popping to see the team because remember last season They did not get to witness training camp at all They haven't been back at saint. Vincent college in latrobe Since two thousand and nineteen..
"spelane" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"You got you got unusual a professional. I've got idiot. Dogs barking in the bathroom. Nearly three down so i was just trying to not have that so thanks for reminding me might professionalism as i as we're all gonna talk about a strip club in the so this is. This is something that i've changed just at the last second here. And it's a guy that i am super excited about as a draft. Pick for the steelers. But i don't think that he is going to have much to do with two thousand twenty one. And it's dan moore junior a love the pick. I love the idea of having him here. I just don't think that he is to be needed to be called upon or any kind of hope that he's not needed to be called upon in two thousand twenty one. So i'm gonna go ahead and say the for a pick from texas a and m dan moore. Junior is the guy at my number nine but it does not diminish how excited i am about this guy. Okay dave who's your number nine. I almost like my michael just to do it by number nine. And i'll give you the reasons as these as we go but my number i'm i i went with trae norwood specifically because of this year and it's not just because it's him because they have they have a lot of young guys also through the undrafted free agents that we'll talk about. Eventually that could be in the mix to of maybe be a sub package guy to fill in for the for the steelers. I don't know that he has to be that guy this year. He could be a guy that is just around. He's a seventh round. Pick as a defensive back you know. One of these guys might not even make the team because last year still even though it was the first time every rookie drafts right every drafted rookie play for the steelers. In their rookie season. they all stood it. Make make the fifty three man squad to start so and the thing is with norwood. There's a there's a lot of guys in competition there at the end. So that's why. I put him in in that position. Okay so. Brian said buddy. I'm sorry dan moore junior. You're saying traynor would. I'm going with the number one pick. That was like what isaiah louder milk. I i just you think about the fact that he is. He's been touted as a project. He's at a position. That is the deepest position on the team arguably lease on the defensive side of the ball. I i think we all assume he's going to make the team but at the same time. I don't think he gets a helmet. Unless there's a bunch of injuries. So i'm gonna say isaiah louder milk for me number nine the least important this team in twenty twenty one i could see him developing into something that is a very serviceable defensive lineman. Just not this year all right. Brian would number eight. He got so. This was my original number nine. And it's dave's number nine. It is trey nor would i really think that you're going to see him. The reason i elevated him above dan. Moore's i think you're going to see more trade norwood trying to break in on special teams if he does get some action. It could be the special team route. I you know. I go back to guys from years past and i remember a rookie from nineteen ninety. Five lafond flowers who ended up being a pretty good player for that team but he was special on special teams in that nineteen ninety-five super bowl season in which they were the runner up to the dallas cowboys. So i'm gonna. I'm gonna follow that in say if norwood does something on special teams he could make an impact. So let's go ahead and put him at number eight days. Go richard eight number eight number. Eight would be one isaiah louder milk. Sorry i had basically for a lot of the same reasons. Jeff said the only reason i put in eight over norwood is it's something that you brought up and that is. He's going to make this team because they gave a fourth round. Pick the trade up to get him. And i can't say for sure that norwood's going to be the guy to make the team because i hope all these guys make the team but if you look at it and say statistically all nine of them making the fifty three man roster pick someone who's not just because of where he was drafted. He's he's going to be there. That's why that's the only reason. I put a louder milk ahead of norwood because i'm more confident. Make the team but you are exactly where he is buried on that depth chart. He is not a guy that they need to call on this year. Hopefully for mine number eight. I'm going to go to someone. No one has mentioned yet in that is An ford the pick for beef round four. Be that would be none. Buddy buddy johnson. I think that inside linebackers in another deep position for the steelers were also forgetting about ulysses the third if he were somehow someway able to stay healthy You have to wonder. Where does everyone fit. You have devon bush robert spelane you have bins williams. Heathrow buddy johnson. You have yuji three and all of a sudden. Let's also not forget. The fact that marcus allen plays inside linebacker miles killebrew's less it as a linebacker antwan brooks junior could be a box safety slash hybrid player. Suddenly all the people that are potentially going to be inside linebacker as a long list. I think buddy. Johnson makes the team. I would be shocked as a fourth round. Pick if he didn't. But i just don't see his importance being anything outside of special teams. That's not to like what brian just said about. Trade norwood that you can still make plays on special teams. You can still have value but in terms of playing in eleven on eleven. I don't see it happening. They would have to be a ton of injuries of position for happens. I'm gonna say number aid. But he johnson. From texas a annette. Let's go with brian number seven. He got number seven. Got milk louder milk. And that is the guy that i'm looking at here. I can see any position eight nine with this guy. I realized that that's a crowded area for him. But you've got guys into it and also hayward just getting a little long in the tooth. I wouldn't be surprised if we see louder. Mogo in the route of a carlos davis and in the last four games of the season starting to see a little bit more action and get into the mix a little bit more. So i mean not not really a not really expecting him to do much this year but as far as importance. Go that defensive line it needs to continue to be stout and if somebody goes down i think he needs to step in and stepping in a big way. All right dave. What about your number seven. My number seven. I have one. Dan moore junior because although i looked from to make this team i look for him to be reserved. I don't know if he'll get a helmet more offensive. Lineman are getting helmets now but because of the roster roles with how many you can dress based on if you have been offensive lineman but the reason that i put him here versus some of the next couple that i have early the next one that i have is because your backup offensive. Lineman generally play special teams. They might be in on extra points or whatnot but it's not like they have to be so that's one reason so and it's not like you are rotational where you'll get a few snaps generally who plays your offensive line plays. They're the whole game. And that's why i put him back so but the reason i put him ahead of the other two that i did is because of the steelers have problems at tackle where a lot of people are worried about offensive tackle. Then his ability might become more important as the season goes on if the steelers struggle with that position. So that's the reason. I put him out of the guys. I actually had the same player for seven. Dan moore junior and i actually didn't realize because i'm not a college football fan in this. These are not. My words is actually from Williamson who writes for steelers dot com former. Nfl scout i forget his first name at. Yep you're right. And he said the texas am had one of the best offensive lines in the in the in college football last year. And he was the anchor left tackle and he said that that is no worthy. I did not know that. So i learned something there i asked myself. Can he beat out. Joe hage as the backup. The primary backup tackle now. A lot of people are saying he's a project he's definitely a developmental. Tackle things like that. Look when you get to the pros either have it or you don't and sometimes it takes some time sometimes. It doesn't but i think with some new coaching and new scheme who knows I have i don't necessarily think or Not predicting the dam was is gonna win that job. But like you said dave. I could see maybe. By mid season of some injuries happen he might be thrust into position so he is going to have some importance..
"spelane" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"I am dave scofield editor behind the steel curtain. With these always my big brother rich rich. You still burning up there so burned up there. But i'm calling off a little. Got the fan. Go in here and drinking lots of ice water already finished the coke. Living the dream talking about the pittsburgh steelers. There was a tree talking about the pittsburgh steelers. So really really yeah. Let's let's let's sorry. I can't auction so our topic tonight. Was we're talking about players who make the pro bowl for the first time with the steelers. I i because i forgot to listen to rich first of all. We didn't think we didn't listen to eric. Branca's he didn't make it with the steelers and we didn't do deontay johnson because he made it as a kick returner so he was eligible. Was on your list so so far we we've done five four and three. You have robert. Spelane tyson iowa. Johnson i have steph onto it. Najji harris chase klay poll so. Those are all players that i could see what happened like i say some have more difficult pass than others and the last thing i want to see like your tyson all my steph onto it the last thing we really want to see is there make the pro bowl because someone else on their team that they beat out for. It has a down year. We don't wanna see that or gets hurt or anything while we don't even say that. How dare you bring up such a thing sacrilege. You don't say these things i was talking about. Ben hurt his elbow all the time. It's like oh come on just mess with you. Let's let's go all right rich number. Two number two double down because my thought is one of the two goes. My number two is paul so you hear him and dj san. What if the two of them is going to make it. Okay okay so. I can see why you say that i could see that where you're 'cause you're not saying that everyone on the list is going to do it correct. I'm is gonna make it. Yeah i'm saying these are the guys i'd like to see. Have the kind of year. Yep exactly okay. And i think that at least one of those receivers as a really great chance to go so i put them both on my list. I could see the kind of place in a kind of it was with some of my play in the some of that. You know the probability of one of these guys going his way high you know like the steelers wide receiver course really get. They are but a lot of places like wound playing them because they don't have that one big superstar guy might not is one of these two guys this year. is that big time superstar guy. It makes the purple. Yeah so that's the thing in someone emerged to do that. That'll be interesting or are they all just going could. That's a good question. Do you want that one pro bowl or possibly all pro guy or do you want the the deepest best wide receiving core in the nfl. Which one would you. What i really want is neither of those. I really want is the lombardi. Yeah i know. That's all but i'm just saying when it comes to your wide receivers room. Which way do you go to one big superstar and hope that the other guys can help them out enough or do you want that really deep unit that you can't really focus in on one guy because then the other three will get you. I don't care. I just want this going home. The lombardi whichever will do hey. What was i agree. Outlaws we at the lombardi trophy. As long as i figure out with last week stat geic. It's still comes back to where people are like. Oh the steelers wasted all that talent through the you know over the last six or seven years you know what you talk about first of all. It's the nfl. Everyone has talent they all do. Everyone has known but the question is how much talent do you have. you know. that's one thing and two steelers fans had something they've never had before and that is a more dominant offense than defense and suddenly that supposed to mean talent equals championships. That's not the way it's worse for the steelers. And i mean the only time their offense was as good as their defense was nineteen seventy nine. You know what. I'm saying. That's it and if you don't understand listening last week static because it's all laid out there when i was looking at at rankings of how the team finished. It's always been defense. I you know the last time the steelers won the super bowl. Their offense ranked in the twenties and their defense was tops in the league. Okay that's you know it's the old adage and i'm gonna. I have an article about this. At some point because i like to let podcast simmer and then do an article about him later. Offense was games. Defense was championships. Okay you've heard that before. I heard that but that's i didn't know that's really one of those ones. That goes out crazy but yeah that's kind of how stuff goes back to my number two player from number two thank you. Yes my number two plan. It's going to be someone that. Despite reports from what particular news outlets.
"spelane" Discussed on The Pat McAfee Show 2.0
"I was hated by our. I was hated by the people. Some of the people that are making decisions. Because i was doing that so like for you. I genuinely see how you would potentially feel like okay if i do this in might potentially running myself out of an opportunity. Because they'll say it's a distraction as opposed anything. And when you get labeled a distraction on some people's minds it's over. So i think the ability to balance that you've been able to do unbelievable fucking really really taylor as well and in with the level of the show. It's a great show. And i hope you continue to get opportunities to play because i think that's a big part of why your show so good because it's like. Hey this is somebody who's living at right now as opposed people even me. I'm like four years out. I think age as more than that. It's like that's a whole different. You know you have a much different view of the locker room in a much different world than even us and we're like the youngest thing you know what i mean so i hope you continue to get crush it and i hope teams continue to realize that you're asset to their team as opposed to a potential detractor. You know i appreciate that man. I feel like over the last couple years. I've been able to kind of like show that and it was definitely like there's the whole fear factor to like it's not like i'm like a taylor or even you like you're a pro bowl punter. They decided that route still right. You can still kick the ball. No i'm saying but on the team. Still the punter though like for sure but i'm saying like as somebody who year in year out is more of a a minimum guy. I've been on minimum deals. And if you can easily get labeled that distraction. It's like okay. Well this guy's not worth at all because he's not gonna you know x y and z. Whatever they want to say so. There's definitely like that element to it. So i've been glad fortunate to have been able to do it on the raiders and the titans last year. But i think the football guys listened to your show. And they're like yeah. We want that fucking guy in our building you know like i i think always gonna. That's my immediate take from. That is like i bet that titans locker room is fucking awesome over there. You know. That's my me the guy at aj. Sorry about that. no. I would say we'll do. You think the turning point for your show like when it really the jumping off point came when you had your head coach mike. Vrabel say he'd cut his own meat off to four coach. There's there's no question that came on and said he cut his offer super bowl him. And when jalen ramsey came on and talks about how your trash talking everybody. I think that's when a lot of stuff sent off for us and then jalen gave us a shout out. You know to the media telling making a media guy say who we were like. Okay give them credit. You wanna bring it up like say their name. Pat pat did a great job throughout the year shall not the boys all the time i got. You guys know you guys know. It's a collective thing. Yeah well listen we. The amount of i mean i'm pumped for you guys that continue to grow because this media is filled with. I mean there are some slat. Dixon are i mean it is a real thing Has a question for you but before we get to that and by the way cova cowboys big fan of yours. You didn't shut him out earlier. But kind of audi did dixie. I'm so sorry. I thought he may be pissed on your johnny manziel on speaking about being labeled a distraction. And i i watched some of the clips. I didn't get to listen to the entire show. But i texted you immediately and i was like what did you think of what was your what was your takeaway of johnny manziel. He's a guy that i've only been around one time but the entire world is watched. That guy's life happened almost at this point. Since winning a heisman at his freshman year whatever's the was he good guy. Cool guy died one out. Like what were your thoughts on johnny manziel. I feel like he is one of the most interesting people in sports history at this point. Yeah i thought he was awesome. There's questions i wanted to ask personally to where it was like. He felt because i know he's he's done a lot of interviews talking about his perspective on everything. And you're right like literally. Everyone has gotten to watch his life kind of unfold because he was in the same breath as a tom brady and lebron not because he played at that level of the pro level but because of what he did in college. Who's a household name he was money menzel and so i was curious how he would respond. When i'm sitting there being like you know as an undrafted guy watching you watching this all unfold. It's like you're watching a first rounder. Swindle an opportunity where i've killed have an opportunity to like that or taylor asking them aid. You have any regrets him saying no. Obviously it's taken a long time for probably to get to that spot because i can only imagine The mental when you come down from that peak but even him saying no taylor and taylor just kind of look at. It's interesting and then kind of just leaving some dead space to where it's like what's going to happen here. I thought he handled himself very well. The perspective he has the extreme on the extreme our sitting there. And i was like hope the you know we gotta get something rolling here. But the extreme ownership he had in all this situations he talked about. He could've easily talked about being in a better situation playing in cleveland.
