"ulysses gilbert" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"List. I'd camp sutton. Tj wad came hayward in traynor would that's only four. There's five more winners left. I got a little creative with some of them and then we have three losers to go through. We're going to do that all here. In the second half. Let's get things rolling. Melvin ingram and alex highsmith. I put them together now together. Even does not even come close to having statistics or stuff that you see on a statute or a box score. That would make you think. Well these guys deserve to be there. But what i want to emphasize here is them. Being two thirds of the pass rushing trio for the pittsburgh steelers. So we know. Tj watt inflicted major damage on the buffalo bills offense but the fact that melvin ingram. Alex highsmith alex highsmith by the way who missed practice in the week was questionable. As of friday and then saturday days eight. He's not questionable anymore. He's going to play with a groin injury. So with highsmith ingram both healthy. They didn't have to being the steelers. They did not have to go out there and throw. Tj watt out there and say you're playing seventy five percent of the sam's no instead they said. Hey we can break this thing up let's say. Tj walkers break ingram and highsmith rin ingram as a break wotton highsmith highsmith needs a break wadden ingram. You see where. I'm going with this without ingram in highsmith who both had tremendous games. I thought both were held often. I can't that. Sounds like i'm being a little whiny baby but if you watch the game the steelers pass rushers were held so much in this game and they just didn't throw the flag and they threw a lot of flags on them too. By the way. But still melvin ingram. Alex smith michael beck. Put this out on twitter and it's a really good question instead. Is this the best trio of pass rushers. The steelers have seen in the modern era. And i i would be hard pressed. If they can continue to us. I would be hard pressed to disagree that this isn't the best that we've seen in nats says a lot that says a lot. Let's go to the next winter. Deontay johnson stat line five catches thirty six yards. One incredible touchdown ten wapping targets. Though ten targets he was targeted. Ten times by ben rothlisberger. The second person on the list of targets was juju. Smith schuster with eight deontay johnson targeted ten times five catches thirty six yard. One i i just wanna talk about touchdown. This was a game last year. If you rewind the tape go back to two thousand. Twenty was the buffalo game or deontay johnson. The very first drive. He dropped a really easy catch. And it kind of just snowballed from there. You just saw all these things happening where he just seemed like he was losing his confidence. He wasn't sure what to do nonetheless. He comes back. And i thought he had a great game. Did leave injured at one. Point came back. Into the game the touchdown catch what a catch. The ball's tipped by the buffalo bills defensive back who's guarding him. I'm not sure who it was. He ends up not only just coming down with but getting to feed in the end zone. A tremendous touchdown. It was the play that they needed was obvious at times that rothlisberger was not going to be able to just throw the team on his back. Like we've seen him do so many times before in his career. He's gonna need some help. And in this case that was the play that rothlisberger needed you saw chase. Clay will have one of those plays later on jujubes misused. Read a couple of those plays. These are the plays. They're going to make for number seven at this stage of his career released early in the season. So good job by deonte johnson. He didn't drop a pass in my opinion in this game. And he had the bit one of the biggest offense a place for the steelers in that touchdown. Reception all right. Let's go to another duo. I already said highsmith and ingram this time ago. And with miles killebrew and ulysses gilbert the third y miles killebrew comes up the middle on a punt block his hand the ball and boy. Does this guy special teamer me. He's he came from detroit terror loss and they had a connection there. Miles killer was known for special teams. Play watched the play again. If you go to the game recap. I have that video embedded into the article. Watch the play again. And you'll as he approaches the punter. He knows exactly what to do. Go to the side. Put your arms out. don't hit the punter. You don't wanna run into the kicker and give them a free set of downs. He does it perfectly know. It was a big mix up on the buffalo front but still he gets the ball. He knocks it down. It was Yuji three third scoops it up and scores in. What a change in dynamic little story about that. So i'm watching the game just myself my sons there. My we have an old dog. He's a sixteen or years old and he's up and around dubinin. I said well my son you take the dog out. And he said sure so. He's coming back into the house. And all of a sudden you hear the door like something something nettles hitting the ground. The steelers get a sack. It's exciting i'm pumped up what. What was that sounds. I go over thinking that the buffalo bills gonna upon. I'm not gonna miss much. I will be back. But all of a sudden i come back to the tv only like a minute later. In i see the pittsburgh steelers are celebrating touchdown. i missed it. I had to rewind it. Watch the punt block. Shame on me is what what you should say. Shame on me but nonetheless all is well with the world. Congratulations to killebrew and gilbert for being on the winners less. The last two had mere stat lines..

"Running back so he takes wordsworth. Let's go to special teams now special teams. I wanna just lumped into one. You're giving a special teams grades. You have to think about the seventy five yard returned. Open the game. You have to think about the blocked. Punt scoop score. Touchdown ulysses gilbert the third and everything in between we had a jordan berry esque shank by the press although he did follow that up with some other good punts so brian. Anthony davis grade that steeler special teams as a whole. So if we're taking all of that in consideration right away you should go into the season. But i think we'll go with a c. Plus because chris boswell came up huge that touchdown was a game-breaker and the seventy five yard. The seventy five yard return from the bills at the beginning only netted three points. So i'm going to say that everything else in between kind of pushes the arrow towards the plus more than just right down the middle. So we'll go see. Plus i david obey you. I'm going to go be and it's because it would have been an errand a plus because of everything else other than one. The the opening kickoff to the last kickoff. I was frustrated. I mean come on danny smith. Why are you having chris boswell. Doing the short run up late in the game. Trying to not just to touch back. After you've given up these yards the one thing that you when you went up ten points with you know on your own. The last field goal. The last thing you wanted to do was give them a big return so just let them start at the twenty five and yet the philosophy was. Let's see if we can. We can do that. I i didn't like that call as much of anything. But i'm not gonna blame the players as much of that so other than those couple returns. I mean blocked punt touchdown. That's what won the game when you think about. That's what won the game changed. The camp sutton play then followed by that one on the next on the next series. That's two four thousand. Plays back to back that. Change this game completely. And if there is such thing as a seventy five yard return. They could turn into positive. Somehow the steelers experienced that when they gave up a seventy five yard return the defense comes out and shuts them down three plays in there kicking a field goal. So not that. I want to see a seventy five yard. Return to start the game. The defense goes on does that. I guarantee gave him a little bit of optimism pie. You know they're starting to feel good about themselves in this matchup. Mattie peril gives a seven ninety nine dingo dollars he said this win helps when it comes to playoff positioning tiebreakers particularly if we finish with nine eleven wins Plus a bath the hell on feeding plus what i'm darla pirlo punt block. Is he speaking australian or something. I thought you just spend some time with them on that show as they as. They do their slang sling slang so this language. This chad checkout touchdown. Okay we have about eight minutes left. I wanna do game balls So let's go ahead and you can pick on it it just one game. This time we're only giving about one game can be offense defense. Special teams doesn't matter. We're going to keep the rotation. Brian go ahead of the of course so many of the give out. And there's some obvious ones i'm gonna go less obvious and i'm giving a gimpo to traynor. Would who. I thought did a lot of things. Sorry i'm surprised. I thought he did a lot of things in this game to give that team confidence and he was not a liability so they can focus on other things. I know that's probably a left field but come on from the cheap seats. let's give it to tray. I shouldn't expect nothing less from bj any so. We'll see plays the steelers right brian. All right. let's let's get a day hoosier gable. Okay my game ball to me. There was three players brandon and take one of them so you all three of them. But it's it's big ninety seven. My goodness that guy was all over the place. I mean to passes defense a tackle for loss. A hit a sack four tackles at he was just eating up blockers. Just anytime you wanted to see. Where even tj tj satellite the the strip sack with tj. It's because he was a josh allen. Went to step up in the pocket and cam hayward was there so he had to go to the side and what comes from behind and gets him. That's why you know saxes. A team has a really big important thing but i thought cam stepped up and looked phenomenon. Then i'm gonna go at tom. Uruguay's is two dollars game. All the one hundred million dollar man. Tj trent jordan. I mean the designs a huge deal and everyone's eyes on him. What do you do you go out and you make a game. Impacting plays is what he did. And don't think there's so many plays at he makes that are maybe a half tackle. But or maybe like a tackle for loss but they're huge plays tj wa with no preseason no team drills nothing out in dominated that's what i saw. He absolutely dominated. Let's go to frodo. frodo watt. I guess that's the long lost brother. Four ninety nine. He's said bold prediction. Dj wide wins league. Mvp an has the sacher twenty four sacks. Thirty five tackles for loss twelve forced. Fumbles in fifty quarterback kids as someone saved as numbers. It's crazy okay. Go ahead some aaron. Donald will still win defensive player. Took it personally awesome stuff. Brought this up. I still miss two stats. He had a forced fumble. Which unfortunately josh allen still recovered and he had the fumble recovery on the tj. Watch ships ac. I mean you think that fumble recovery cam kind of come up with that ball. Came head while yes he was. He was credited with that. According to the nfl media report lunar. I'm talking about when he was chasing down. Alan alan year is is the fumble. The ball clearly is a fumble. Did come up with the football. I think he took it away from allen was down away if they wouldn't have been able to see that allen got camera to come out of the power with it but i think that they could see that he got. I thought go. I thought that was one that they may be challenged if they felt that he really quick after that they got up to the line and went. Yeah so all right. Let's see some final thoughts here brian. Anthony davis what are your final thoughts this game in week one. Well we had so many weeks to gear up for the buffalo game. It seems like we've been talking about bills. Mafia josh allen the steelers offensive line the steelers secondary the lack of depth all over the place. Tj watts contract. You know it all came together you just talked about. Tj watt and. He did the ultimate. Hey guys hold. My beer goes in rex. Everything cam hayward was missing steph onto it on the other side and we talked about this on the preview the other day and we said that this guy is the guy that is going to step up as well and one guy. We didn't give a game ball. Because i want all the way from the field was cam sutton. Yes and cam.

"Be able to do for four quarters because i i know this is a great defense but the pittsburgh steelers are going to have to do a little bit more offensively if they want to have a very long and fruitful season after that coach sean coach tomlin was asked about deonte johnson about coming back into the game. After he was injured to score touchdown coach t. called him a competitor as well as all the other receivers And it did. It did show something that he's able to come back from that injury and get points up on. The board coach was also asked about the blocked punt for miles. Killebrew that ulysses gilbert the third scooped up and brought in for touchdown Basically he said at halftime to his team that the they needed splash. Plays to win this game and see exactly what they got. Coach also pointed. Derek watt in the locker room at halftime mentioning that they needed to even the odds. After giving up that long kickoff return on the first play the game the steelers did just that they got those points back on the board blocking the punt getting it in for the end into the end zone. Which effectively was the dagger in this game. Being able to scoop and score and give the steelers to to score lead act quickly jumping on top of Of the bills who led for most of the day after that took o. Sean was asked about the defense specifically and he thought they played great and he also said having a defensive good he expects them to be great every single time. They take the field Coach salman said that is that is one of those things that he has come to expect from his team This defensive unit has been so good year round or talent wise has been so good that he expects them to be dominant like they were against the bills. And the last thing coach tomlin was asked about Was about to kind of play calling the decision. Making and coach t. Again points to his defense and says when they play that good. It makes it easy to make those coaching decisions. That might be a little more difficult like throwing the ball Late in the game when the steelers were trying to grind that clock out or in other situations like going forward on fourth down the steelers defense was so good. That kind of allows your offense play calling to be a little more aggressive and that says.

"Look outstanding throughout training camp and the preseason and know what tj walk into the inside linebackers steals are greatly improved in the middle of their defense. What was probably the weakest point for the steelers. All of last season that inside linebackers against the buffalo bills. When i believe is ulysses gilbert the third marcus allen where the steeler starters In in the middle of the defense there and the bills really pick them apart now. The steelers have devon bushing. Joe schubert starting off this game. This is going to be an entirely different over the middle much. Better group The steelers have in this game. Then they did a year ago against buffalo. Of course the cornerback spot. The brand new corner kilo witherspoon. Not sure if he's going to start right away on the edge or how the steelers plan on kind of rotating it but factor matters. Joe haines going to be in the lineup Witherspoon of course is now on the team. James peers healthy cam. Sutton steals have got some guys at corner. Are they as good as last year. Oh of course not. They lost even nelson and mike hilton but still got some dudes at the corner spot and then it safety. Mika fitzpatrick trail admins. And then they're backed up by what carl joseph now. Which is a definite upgrade over. Sean davis and that's kind of reserve type role and then trae norwood behind of its patrick. Which i guess jordan dangerfield would have been his backup so the steelers are definitely looking good especially depth twice on the defensive side of the football so not only. Is this team better coach. But i honestly believe they have better talent. So i'm i'm pretty darn excited for this for this game for those two reasons alone and we'll break things down a little bit further in the second half of the show and try to look at the other side of the coin but for right now the pittsburgh steelers your training in a very nice direction as they prep for the game. The buffalo bills more live mike action will.

"Coming out Thought this was kind of big news but as things went on and ultimately this this breaking news. Podcast is about the steelers depth chart going into week one but we'll get there in just a moment real quick. Those jersey numbers that came out jamir jones changes jersey number. Two forty buddy. Johnson moved to forty five wait. I thought that was joe schubert. Yeah joe schubert moved to number ninety. Three also kello witherspoon. He chose jersey number twenty five. They also assigned jersey numbers to the other practice squad players. That weren't part of the steelers. Most notable karl joseph who was reported to possibly be moving up to the steelers fifty three man roster once he clear some protocols is number thirty. I'm not gonna get into all the others at this time. But the other thing is the pittsburgh steelers chose their captains for the twenty twenty one season. They selected ben rothlisberger on offense cameron. Heyward on defense and derek watt as the special teams captain so Missing from last year there was five captains had to on offense to and defense and special teams which was jordan dangerfield. So derek watt first time captain for the steelers in his second year rothlisberger and hayward has been seven straight years. That's as long as hayward's been captain. Rothlisberger has been captain thirteen times at eleven straight years. Two thousand ten. He was not a capital one in there. But the other offense of captain from last year was mark pouncey who retired and on defense. It was tj watched who there was some news with watt. Today he did not return to practice in any different role the what he's had throughout training camp so that kind of setting off some more panic and steelers nation I would say wednesday when the team practices and they have to give an injury report. That's going to be a real big indication with tj watt. Talk about him in a little. Bit more ear on this depth chart and we'll get more information tomorrow from head coach. Mike tomlin and his press conference scheduled for noon on tuesday. So let's get into this depth chart real quick because of some very interesting things. Let's let's start off with the offense and we'll go with the offensive line if went by the older depth chart. They only had four offensive lineman because they hadn't filled in a name for the starting right tackle. But as of right now with the new depth chart from the pittsburgh steelers. here's your starting offensive. Line right tackle. Chook sikora for moving back to the right side like he played last year. Right guard trae. Turner center kendrick green left guard. Kevin dotson left. Tackle dan moore junior. So that's the offensive line. That's the move. A lot of people expected some people were really reading into jc. Half an hour still being the first player listed on the depth chart that was simply because they had a mirror. Preseason the steelers hadn't changed it but kendrick green is. You're starting center with an hour and reserve joe. Hey is listed reserve tackle on both sides a bj fini's listed as the backup to turner on the right side at guard and left guard with kevin. Dotson the backup is listed as rashad coward Let's go ahead and jump into the wide receivers. The steelers have three wide receivers listed as starters. They have it in three different slots and that jujubes. Misuse turkey. Andre johnson and chase klay poll. The backups to those players. Are they have ray ray mcleod. He's behind smith schuster. But i don't know if that matters and they have james washington listed by the johnson. I would read into who they fall behind. That's just the order that they listed him at tight end. Here's what's interesting. Even though there was only one slot they squeeze two names into it. They have both eric. Hebron and pat fair moves listed as the starting tight end on. The first team was zach. Gentry as the reserve quarterback is what we expected. Ben rothlisberger one mason rudolph to duane haskins three derrick watts listed as the fullback and For running back is nausea harris followed by bennie. Snell junior and then kaelin balaj. That's the way the steelers have it for now. We'll see how the playing time shakes out when that ends up coming around. So there's the offense the defense here's some interesting stuff The way they have the defensive line they haven't listed as a defensive tackle at defensive in a nose. tackle it generally been hayward to it. Awhile well steph. Onto its on injured reserve so a tackle. They have cameron heyward backed up by isaiah louder milk at defensive and they have chris worm leaves the one and carlos davis the to and then at nose tackle. They have tyson allah with isaiah bugs in reserve now for outside linebacker. Trent jordan watt one. Tj watt is listed as the left outside linebacker on number one on the depth chart that has not changed we. Hopefully we'll hear more from coach tomlin about this tomorrow. If they plan on him being available for week one and then on the on the right side is alex highsmith. The reserves are the same for both they did it for both melvin ingram's listed as the reserve for both players followed by jimmy jones when looking at the inside linebackers. They have devin bush listed at the left. Joe schober the right. I'm not gonna read into left and right there but those are your two inside linebackers the next set of inside linebackers because remember the steelers have six is marcus allen and robert spelane then the third set is buddy. Johnson and ulysses gilbert the third. So that's kind of interesting especially if the steelers are going to have to make any more roster moves. You're probably looking at guys that are further down the depth chart and a lot of people feel that inside linebacker where they have six players could be somewhere where they have to make a move otherwise we'll get to that soon became cornerback. Here's what's interesting. The steelers in the past have listed slot corner or nickel or nickel corner as a starting role. They do not have that listed here. They do not have any quarterback listed in that way so all they have is left and right. Which is joe hayden on the left in camp sutton on the right on the first team. The second team is justin lane behind. Joe haden and james pierre behind cam sutton then. They're the third team has a pillow witherspoon behind justin lane. And arthur. Let behind james. Pierre no surprises it safety as its toronto edmonds. A strong safety minkah fitzpatrick is free safety. Miles killebrew's backing up crow edmonds with trae norwood backing up. Mika fitzpatrick finally to finish things off. Let's talk about the special teams. No really big surprises. When it comes to the specialists. Of course a chris boswell as the kicker presley harvard the third is the punter and holder and christian koonce as the long snapper. Ray ray mcleod is listed as both the punt returner and kick returner for the first team now. His reserves are let's go punt returner. I is deonte johnson to and then james pierre third when on kick return it goes rain. Mcleod benny snell junior as the second kick returner in jeans peers. The third It'll be interesting to see when he comes back from injured reserve. Anthony anthony mcfarland where he would fall with. It would be a head of railway mcleod behind because he was used a lot during the preseason so there is a pittsburgh steelers depth chart but they released today very interesting. It's funny because there's it's not a lot of big surprises but more a less or less there was a lot of confirmation of speculation on especially when it comes to the offensive line. So it's interesting with with these things just to see how they lay out in the in the reserves and everything else. I am pleased to see. Tj watch still there Probably because he is on the fifty three man roster. They're not going to remove him but they did list him. As the first player we should get more information on. What in the coming days but until then make sure that you.

"Pittsburgh steelers fans welcome to this breaking news. Podcast of the pittsburgh steelers fifty three man roster. The steelers had to cut down to fifty three players by four pm. On tuesday august thirty first and this is their first fifty three man roster for the two thousand twenty one. Nfl season now. The reason. I say it's the first is because it's not going to be the last honestly this roster may only last a day if there's anyone that they're wanting to get to the i. r. to have come back early or anything like that and he kind of trades and kind of ups those are still could becoming so this is just the first version and it's actually quite interesting with some of the things that the steelers chose to do so. Let's break it down real quick. There was really no surprise at the quarterback position. It was ben rothlisberger mason rudolph and wayne haskins and joshua dobbs went to the injured reserve list as part of the announcement of this which is interesting because if he's going to the into reserve less now after not being on the roster for the day. This isn't un eligible to return thing this is. He's on the i are now. They could've put. I mean the the actual statement was that he is on the reserve injured list. Now could there be an injury settlement later if he's eligible to to play things of that nature. Perhaps i'm not sure. But i'm not surprised by this because if someone someone being on the i r this allows joshua dobbs to be on the sidelines for steelers games which i think is something that they ultimately want it. But let's not go too much into that. let's talk about. Who's on this team. The steelers kept four running back and fullback they. They're running. backs are nausea harris. Benny snell junior anthony. Macfarland junior and caylin balaj. The steelers released trey edmunds and jalen. Samuels i thought it was a chance that could maybe keep trey edmunds. Because he does some different things as h back. I think he's a prime candidate for the practice squad and possibly even elevation if they would need it so i don't think his time in pittsburgh is completely over. Also the steelers kept fullback derrick. What as expected and the steelers went with the five wide receivers that a lot of people had them projected to have all the way back ever since julius misuse to return so it was juju smith schuster. James washington deonte johnson. Chase klay poll. At ray ray mcleod in no particular order. The steelers also kept three tight ends. When eric hebron pat fair youth and zach gentry. They released kevin reiter as long as he goes through. Waivers everything he's another prime candidate for the practice squad. Additionally then we get to the offensive line which is kind of crazy with what the steelers did here. I wasn't sure or this is going gonna keep rashad coward or bj finney. Rashad coward a bj. Finney didn't keep either of them. They're going with eight offensive linemen. Which is kind of crazy right now when you think about it but it's chew chor four zach banner kevin dodge and trae turner kendrick green dan moore junior joe hague and jc half an hour. So this means that the steelers did not their backup guard right. Now is half an hour so i have a feeling we might see one or both of these players back on this roster sometime soon. I wouldn't be surprised if one day later if player. I've hinted at this monday morning before. Other things even came out that we could possibly see zach banner going on injured reserve early in the season with a chance to return and you can return after three weeks. Not three not three games three weeks the way i understand it which means that earlier. He goes on the sooner he can return. But that's the offensive line. Only eight offensive lineman at this time they might be looking to add another one outside of the organization or to have one of those other ones. Come back it'll be really interesting to see how this plays out over the next several days. So that's a total of twenty four players on offense so they're one less than they normally have on offense so let's go ahead and slide on over to the defense and the question was. Oh my goodness which defensive lineman of the steelers not gonna keep. Are they going to. Are they going to keep an extra one to keep seven. If so they still gotta lose one is going to be mondo bugs auto milk. Who's it going to be so looking at it. They kept them all. They kept eight. Defensive lineman cameron heyward stefan to it. Tyson allahu chris warmly. Henry mondo isaiah bugs. Carlos davis and isaiah louder milk. All of them all of them to start off on this fifty three man roster next did outside linebackers. The only kept four. The only kept for the big. Three of tj watt. Alex smith and malcolm melvin ingram. The third and the fourth was jamir jones who played the best in the preseason. So that was one that was kind of interesting what they would do with quincy rochet. He did not make the team. I'm sure they'd love to get them on the practice squad if he can get there. But here's where. I get surprised that they that they didn't keep quincy rochet but they kept six inside linebackers. That which were devon bush. Joe show bert. Roberts spelane buddy johnson marcus. Allen and ulysses gilbert the third. I was really surprised that they would keep that many inside linebackers and so if you outside linebackers but that's just what they decided to go with. And that's that's very interesting so ten linebackers when sometimes. There's only nine eight defensive lineman when a lot of times. There's only six or seven. You already had one more guy on defense because the guy on offense but if you're counting and you're and you're saying okay. They still going to have three specialists. How many they got back. They only kept eight defensive backs four corners and four safeties. So i would not be shocked to see the steelers. Possibly looking places here where they're a little bit thin because the cornerbacks are joe. Haden cameron jean-pierre justin lane. Yes that is correct. The steelers they've released. Arthur molet who seemed to be if he was healthy. Might have been in line to be the slot. Cornerback after an injury to antoine brooks but he was released gay as well as mark gilbert and then it safety. They kept four. Which wasn't surprise. They released donovan steiner and they kept making fitzpatrick tarot edmonds miles. Killebrew and trae norwood's so that is your pittsburgh steelers defense twenty-six players at all. You gotta finish up with a specialist. These reports came out monday night and yes they were true. The only the only one returner from last season. And that is place-kicker chris. Boswell the punter is seventh round draft pick presley harbin in the third and the long snapper is christian. Coots who has been on and off the steelers practice squad or training camp you know. He was on the practice. What a little bit last year when they might have been concerned of needing a long snapper with a lot of the covert stuff he played in the xfl but had himself a very nice preseason. So the steelers switch up both their punter and long snapper so in all twenty four offense twenty sixty fence. Three specialists fifty three men. Total on this team. This roster is likely to change its likely to change within. I mean i don't know about hours. But i the steelers could go out. And they could sign a veteran that was released right now because it would not have to clear waivers. They could pick up someone in the waiver wire. They could signed somebody back tomorrow. They could put one of their players on the i r. Unsigned somebody back. There's a lot of possibilities here so we will be breaking this down. Even more on the scarborough show podcast tonight at approximately nine. Pm on youtube and facebook and the audio will be going up sometime between eleven pm and midnight eastern so. Make sure you check that out but this was your breaking news. I don't even know if i said who i was. I can't remember. I was so excited about the fifty. Three man roster. This is behind the curtain editor. Dave scofield let you know what happened with this roster and these are most of the players you will see most likely come september twelfth. We are less than two weeks away from the steelers kicking off in buffalo. And we'll we'll see what kind of moves they make but bottom line is these are the players that that you can start to fall in love with hope. We'll see how they change. I'm sure something's going to happen. But as we always say here go steelers..

"ulysses gilbert" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Deputy editor behind the curtain dot com and we were doing a little bit of a primer for cut down day of course tuesday the days now as soon as this podcast drops we will be taken down the minutes. Heck the seconds to that cut deadline as those move start trickling in and we know they will and they will be coming in hot. And i don't really anticipate any big crazy cuts by the pittsburgh steelers especially the team in the direction. They're trending in. It just doesn't look like a team. That's going to be making any kind of bold decision right now but we should talk about the defense of course first half of the show. We broke down often. The side of the football defensively kicking things off at the corner position and we'll work our way in from there at corner. I think we already know what the steelers star is going to look like but then it comes to those depth spots and whether or not they make a move for another corner. Which if you ask me if you ask jeffrey benedict if you ask. Jeff hartmann dave pskov. Basically if you ask anyone from behind the steel curtain dot com staff it feels like an evid ability that the steelers land some sort of corner whether or not. It's a player from an outside team or trade to upgrade the spot especially at that nickel position. An o'brien callaghan's name. That's been talked about a lot and one that the steelers have called to check in on. I don't know if it's passed anything other than initial contact but that's something. We need to see one of those spots. Honesty is going to come from a player more than likely outside the organization that the time of recording. The show is currently a pittsburgh steeler outside of that you of go look at those kind of depths spots. Could amar gilbert climb his win in the team. Of course you know occur. Brown got cut in the steelers have no plans on signing him to the practice squad which is kind of mind boggling to think of the undrafted free agent with the largest signing bonus in steelers history getting cut just a few weeks later with no interest for the team for even a one redshirt kind of developmental year the steelers sitting and kind of moved along that one was a bit of a shocker but that corner spot again. It's one wash. It almost seems like justin lanes going to fluke his way into another nfl year. Sorry if you're listening. Justin but he struggled mightily throughout all his playing time in the regular season. The last couple of years after being third round pick for the pittsburgh steelers But they just don't have the bodies. Justin leans going to find his way on this team once again. Moving out to safety. This one is kind of one of those up in the air things once again. Because the steelers don't really have any safeties past their starters you know making fitzpatrick trill admins and traynor. Would i suppose it's kind of that number. One free safety back up now with almost no competition behind him which is pretty insane for the pittsburgh steelers to roll a seventh round pick as a primary backup into the season. But that's just the way we're rolling into this year so hopefully norwood is ready to go but right now. I don't anticipate anything anything crazy. Come down from that role. Strong safety however i guess miles kellogg abreu is your backup strong safety guy. That played linebacker. The last couple of seasons. In that kind of marcus allen type role of course. He's reunited with coach. Darrell austin who drafted him to detroit and meet him. A strong safety before awesome left and killebrew was bumped down to that inside linebacker position. So safety i wouldn't expect anything crazy outside of them perhaps trying to bring in another body. I don't. I don't foresee them making any bold moves at the safety position though and are just more likely to try to rotate one of the corners. Up to safety in the event of an injury bringing things down to inside linebacker and things start to get a little bit of spicy because that inside outside linebacker spot. We know the steelers like to carry nine of them total. Whether or not it's five guys in the inside or five guys in the outside varies by year and it just varies by talent level. And who. Danny danny smith thinks is going to be a better contributor on special teams those kind of depth linebacker roles typically false guys that have a little bit more special teams prowess. So that's something to keep in mind when the cuts come down and you get mad that your favorites outside or inside linebacker depth player that is got the axe. That's probably because they're not a very good special teams contributor. And that's their number. One job being the ninth linebacker on this team so some names to watch out for us cut candidates i think of course ulysses gilbert the third his time i feel like he's one of those guys just come to an end he was terrible. All preseason lawn. He lost naps he. He's he remembered that week one game that he was healthy. Mike tomlin refuse to give them a helmet despite having almost no depth that inside linebacker at all it was just one of those things where ulysses gilbert the third continues to hang on but everything is just training in the wrong direction for him lashing on this team any longer. So that's someone. I kind of anticipate getting the chop. Of course marcus. Allen is another name that you should watch out for who i think he might have played himself onto the roster but battling some injury. You don't know for certain. We know joe schubert and devin bush. You're going to be the starter so not to worry. They're the most likely backups. Roberts splaine and buddy johnson will be backing them up then it becomes whether or not there's a fifth linebacker or fifth guy on the outside. Of course the outside linebacker spot you've got. Tj watt melvyn. Melvin ingram goodness gracious. Already forgotten his name. And then you have. Alex highsmith as your three starters. Your forced guy comes down to a competition of three players..

"ulysses gilbert" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

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

"We know coach. Tom can talk on and on. Even if it's about nothing he just threw that away makes you wonder if he's in the doghouse or something else. Like it really is confusing really Going back to last season. He was successful on the field. The steelers offense wine was better when he was out there. Filer coming off injuring. They still start on the playoff game so to me. The there's i feel like there's something else that has to be going on because he's been skilled on the field in proves the unit he's definitely the best left guard on the roster and he should be a starting spot but for whatever reason still gets thrown on the bench Really i i can't give you a good explanation. Why from an onfield perspective. I i just feel like there's something else going on here. I wonder if tomlin at this point just doesn't wanna talk to me about it because he probably saw that his comments that he made earlier this week. About what are we talking about. The guy hasn't even worked yet got completely twisted and misconstrued. I wonder if he's with this guy. I'm just not gonna talk. Maybe that's it. I don't know but you know what. Let's talk about the quarterbacks. What do you think about. Let's talk about route off and haskins. Because i think dobbs is still kind of outlier. Let's talk about rudolph in haskins if you were the head coach. How would you set up. The after ben rothlisberger plays is upcoming. Preseason game on saturday how would you rolling out after that. Okay so this is pretty interesting to me. I still want to point out the fact that mason rudolph only had one incompletion And he he played solid the the reason the drive stalled. There's a couple of holding penalties in a false start. There were third and longs. I understand why the drives died. The way they did that being said haskins was still the better quarterback today but that will not mean he takes a step above rudolph no matter what he had a great game. He put up some good numbers and really. This is just a a good situation for the steelers. Because i think haskins is maturing and he's working in the right direction as for how you're gonna roll these guys out now with the steelers last two preseason games after ben takes field. Of course. I think we're gonna see all the stars come off for both sides so i really don't think it matters kinda the shift on how you wanna play them. I i'm kind of interested to see mason. Rudolph going up against the backups Just because he's been playing against like the top the top guys that are still available for these games as the starter so the next game is kind of an outlier. it's the final game. Which on super interested in. I wanna see dwayne haskins. Go up against Those the starting level players slash primary backups. I want to get him on the field with deontay. Andrew jackson Whoever may be starting the game off. He hasn't had that opportunity yet but once he once he gets that will be able to compare the two a little bit more just because the level of play. And what we've been able to see from route with having Najji beside him but then playing against a mika parsons or whoever dwayne haskins of course having lesser talent beside him but also going up against lesser talent. So i kinda. We'll see that script were reversed for that last. Preseason game they just gotta get ben right for The preseason game three in maybe he gets a little bit of action in the fourth. Preseason game just to make sure he's not rusty off after a two week layoff but seen what haskins can do against The teams number one kind of important for that the back. Half of this preseason. They don't play saturday next week. We'll get to talk about that game next friday and your segment. But i do want to ask you a couple questions two questions before i let you go in. Its roster cut joe shirt. Let's assume he is coming to pittsburgh. Because at the time of this being recorded it is still just a report. A rumor but let's say becomes official. Who gets the ax. Based on him coming on now but when the cuts are made is it yuji three or is it a marcus allen. Cutting first and foremost i think Schubert's wife story up packing up to move to pittsburgh. If you scroll through her twitter account so i think it's done but when it comes to cuts that's tough. I still think. Marcus allen brings a little bit of juice on special teams and he's kind of that ultimate. Hi guys good for the locker room and then ulysses gilbert's has been in the doghouse far too many times. I think you g three ends up the guy on the chopping block and that's the guy that of move on from especially because they're both kind of buck linebackers So one can replace the other next question. Jamir jones is by far the the guy that jumps off the screen. The most is preseason. And it's because he's going back. I feel like he's different than twos are skipper to skipper was like. Is this guy for real. I feel jamir. Jones is a well rounded player. So let's the steelers wanna keep him. How did they make a spot for them. Do they give cue from the you. Quincy rochet is pokemon. King cassius marsh. Gone what do you do to make room for. Jamir jen's yeah that that's the tough question here and i. I think you might find the spot from different positions. I don't think the steelers should be caring for running backs. That seems a little unnecessary this year. Like they did a year ago especially because now she's kind of spearhead All the carries. Really so i think he can find the spot somewhere else in the roster but at the end of the day at you're only going to carry. What maxed out five outside linebackers. I can't see a world where they'd take six of them unless they have no depth at inside linebacker which of course now they do but When it comes to the that final spot to me. I'm just completely against having catches marsh on this roster He's an older player. Sneakily older than a lot of people would expect. I think this is eight season. The nfl and he's never developed a against being a run defender. And we know keith. Butler said that like those last spot or two at outside linebacker. It's probably going to be more made by danny smith and what those guys can do special teams. Which isn't greek because cash marshes a decent special teamer..

"Don't think so. I think. I think you're gonna see snell and up on this team because they do value having another running back who has at least a good nose for picking up tough yards if harris's that guy they're gonna they're gonna want snell to you. Don't want to have like guys behind him. they can't they. Don't don't do that well. Ballots to me is interesting. Because he actually i think could fill that jalen samuels role. I don't kaelin balance as a as a pure running back isn't the playmaker. He's a big play runner. But he's also gonna lose a lot of yards similar to similar to james connor but with a different style and approach to it. If he can you know show off and deliver with his receiving which he's done in the past if he can do that he could be that that that running back that you can put out there. He can be a blocker he can be a runner he can be passed. Receiver kinda guy and have nausea harrison. The backfield that's you know like i said. Nausea harris is like the perfect guy for that versatile role. But you want to have that main threat in the backfield and have another guy that can fill that role on the field at the same time because then you then you can really make the best of it. You can look like oh nausea harris's running off left tackle but he doesn't have the ball kaelin balanced dotted off the pitch and he's running up the middle late. That's that's the kind of role there. i could see. Kale balance played himself onto this team in that kind of role i think he is faster and i think he fits it better than jaylen. Samuels does in the nfl. I actually think both those guys. Well i i would say. I don't think any stella's is in competition with bally's is much as balances in competition with With a guy named anthony mcfarland. I think those two are going to be that are in the mix for that back second that that running back who also does other things kind of position. That's where that's where. I think the competition should end up We'll see we'll see how they do in preseason Yeah i a little different. Because i think anthony mcfarland's wore that like speedy tech guy that matt hannah likes hanging around. That could be like a jet sweep type guy bouncing around a little bit so i think that could be a little bit different asks for benny smell. Though coarser is that it wasn't really report more of just people putting together. Perhaps benny style could be a trade target of the la rams after they're running back cam acres. I believe is kill easy. Blew out and will miss the twenty twenty one season rough especially for that team If the steelers could get can minded draft. Pick out of any snell. I i would take that like i would jump all over at any. Smells not going to be huge. Contributor with nausea hair like basically it comes down to here is getting injured which again knock on wood if he if he's healthy all europe and he still see the field steelers are when they have a healthy bell cow running back so if thinking minded draft pick out of it. I'm all for it. But otherwise i think he sticks around say one more thing on the running backs gobert. Betty smell his rookie year. Looked like he had better vision than james connor and looked like he had better vision than he did in his second season. I don't know what to sealers doing. But they're they're running backs like lost the ability to read an offensive line and find holes They have since changed offensive. Line coaches I believe the offensive line coach was the run game. Coordinator has been for a while. We could see a difference there. But i want to put that in there as as a possible thing to watch for is betty. Snell got worse in his second season with his vision that he he was as a rookie. And so the they've changed a few Coaches and. But that's still something i think you have to watch especially when we're talking about young guys you don't you don't wanna see you know. A nausea harris suddenly start struggling to find holes. So hopefully they have fixed. Whatever was wrong there. But i want that as a caveat that they had that problem before. Hopefully that's a problem. Yeah you bring up a very good point there on the other side of the ball One of the first names. That kind of pops up to me. marcus allen. who's he he's he's been Kind of a cockroach. he just won't go away no matter What the steelers. Due to the guy he was a safety. He's put on a ton of weight to move to linebacker. He's still sticking around. I believe a twenty seventeen traffic. What you're five for him. Now that's pretty crazy for guy that says never really done much on the field even in really special teams type role you think. This is the final stretch. marcus allen. He's definitely got competition. Did vince williams retiring. Save him a little bit to give them a chance at the next roster spot. I mean that does free up a freeze up spots. My question is like killebrew and allen. You want both of them like are you keeping guys and and how are you using them differently. Because they're very similar. They're very similar in in the roles they take on the field so to me. Marcus allen may be out the door simply because there's other guys that can do that and you also have to look at a guy like ulysses gilbert's Like there's some good competition for that depth linebacker who who is more coverage guy so market. Marcus allen. 'cause he is he is like that cockroach i not sold on him at all. I'm not a big fan of his but yet he was getting stops ahead of people One of our worst defensive games was when it was him and williamson to now playing linebacker. Literally everyone else was hurt. Ulysses gilbert the third play that game and was hurt in that game. It was his first game of the season. He got hurt in it. And so it was marcus allen and williamson is in there and they were just not good obviously. It's not that ideal situation if you're dying back on a guy who's barely you know ban on the team. But yeah marcus marcus. Allen is a tough one for me. Because i really don't know why they keep them around. He doesn't seem like a very good player to me when i watch them on film but he's got a long room. Yeah yeah i don't. He's got to be doing something right. That i'm not catching. I've always known into drafted. He was like the hype. Man in the weight. Room keeps the mood light. So maybe if you make it to the nfl kids watching this. Just be a good dude. Maybe we'll keep you in the league a couple extra years lamarcus ellen. Go look at his stats. He'll probably blow your mind a little. He's done but again year five..

"We thank him for all his years of service for the pittsburgh steelers everything that he's brought to the team. There's some great memories. i'm sure we'll talk about those in the coming days and weeks but now we have to look at the pittsburgh steelers from the inside linebacker position moving forward. The steelers did get some good news on wednesday when the team reported training camp devon bush the starter at inside linebacker. His acl tear that he suffered last week. Last season i believe is week four. I could be wrong about that. And i apologize for not having that in front of me. He's fully recovered. According to jerry do lack of the pittsburgh post gazette he's fully recovered and he should be good to go in terms of getting back to practice and not missing any time. That's important on top of that. Now with vince williams gone. You would assume the robbers spelane would fill in Next to devon bush on your basically your every down linebacker and then you would have players like buddy. Johnson news a rookie. You would have ulysses gilbert the third. Maybe even marcus allen being thrown into the mix. The pittsburgh steelers are a team that if there's one position where they actually have some depth i would say is it inside linebacker now. That death does not necessarily equate to experience net. Something that vince williams always brought to the steelers was a wealth of experience considering how much he had to play early in his career so of robert spleen and devin bush can say healthy. I feel like that's your tandem. That's going to be starting a for pretty much most of the time. They're going to be the ones that are out on the football field Unless they get into specific sub packages. One of them comes off. You can debate whether this is better or worse. With or without vince williams. That's fine but i don't think that now is the time to appropriately discussed that. Let's enjoy vince. Williams for the career that he had Let's enjoy vince. Williams for the character that he was He's one of the few players that i remember. He actually reached out to me as the editor of behind the steel curtain. When he was having a stories break with remember he was. It was the whole Vaunt has birthed beef on twitter and stuff and he was trying to reach out to outlets and he's a really nice guy. He's a great guy and he came from florida state and he's very proud of that fact and he someone that you know if you follow him. Closely listened to the quotes. Listen to the media. Soundbites he doesn't he would not make this decision rashly. He would not just say. I think i don't really playing anymore. I'm just going to retire now. Could he or should. He have told the steelers ahead of time. That's neither here nor there but it's a situation where like i said earlier. We wish vince williams the absolute best in his retirement as for a quick programming note.

"I think the problem the problem andrew gina is. He's kind of stock a feel like he's in the marcus allen situation. I think you know. He's always at the proven performance. August allen in my view but antoine shoes stuck in that. He's got this body that's like kind of choice to linebacker for. Then he's not quite doesn't necessarily have that experience but he's not required quick enough to play safety. That field looks like he's put on white according to purge wherever it's you know he's five eleven two hundred and twenty pound that puts him in a small one back up. And that's why. I'm not saying that don back is sorta roll but it puts him into if he doesn't have the spady constantly pace by safety. So i think antwan brooks genius fighting with marcus allen for that sort of safety hybrid linebackers sort of position along with malls killer. Bruin ulysses chard something than to bring him back. I mean he. He did get caught in the nightmares. Roster cots and given wherever veterans. They did soil. Like you've got to look across the rosters to why someone gets caught up with when it comes to answering the preseason. He's one of the plays the unit particularly from definitely from these draw. Clause twenty twenty but in the whole steals rostock. He's one of the few guys. The preseason is absolutely vital if he wants to make the steelers or even detainee for whatever reason steals cape them. So i think i'm grateful for him because if you go back and you look at some of these type i know it's highlights a lot of the time they feel highlights from he's type of maryland he could do. A bit was pretty flexible. In the white. I could use him I particularly like him given you know if he can. If you knowingly ulysses gilbert canton brooks junior come in cova some some of that role because we've got to remember. We talked about this a lot. Wait until about a loss. Wait for instance. The didn't bush. How quick devon bush's in that the steelers can titled a defense based on having a very fast one back that can cover a lot of different players. So you know but i mean in terms of wide receivers and running backs in slot. When i be so. I think it's really important that we've got plays the can step into that role whilst we don't necessarily expect the same out. Parole the time if an injury happens because we don't want our defense completely relent along while predicting the concerns me about antoine brooks junior. I remember that time people said all that was a poll run from him but he's got a full point seeks full forty-odd and that to me is a bit slower like if you had a full five five or full five eight fine but a worry with that spade that he can do enough of what we need and that that's my that's why he's gonna have to show out in terms of mentality capability mental processing That we're talking about what terrell edmonds is gonna do good a bit of a interlude. Here we have marco o'malley just said get ice deals fame. Isn't that great. You're heading into their second season. It's almost a one year anniversary. We'll go walk on molly mic mickey mouse saying good. Ice deals fam- that is the best. That's probably thinking the first time. I think i've seen it in the lodge chat. From who isn't he region us. Who's in from australia. So that's really cool to say it says out from apprehension against said like maddie's a quarterback and on this the fourth united string running back and make sure make sure then come on and fumbled the bowl or maybe i'm gonna lay blackout on that guy. That that walking's by picked up the fumble and ran the opposite way for the touchdown quarterback you'll have hansi although like the banner the energy you bring goba the loss to the meeks you want to bring up an our. It's not these. Drop cloths. But i just going to say at brad. Ju it talks about. How would steal quincy rochet was. It's gonna take a year or two. I will take a couple of eastern village. People realistic to have him behind smith. Anna and tj. What deputy with one of evidence knee injury whether it's small will not. I think it's gonna be massive. You know. I did premium and one of the i will rooms as well before it. Surcharge from caporale finn was interested in You know i can definitely share with you. The link to what that was just tweet at me at matt have but yet really excited for quincy shy. But let's move on saturday. We got next off to antone brooks so as we go further into the draw ta this might be one of the drops. It is one of the best with the steelers in a long long time. There's big names coming up in the the first biggest thing we say is round full Kevin dotson so i think he's. He's ready for a big second year and even without me taking his football ability or watching lots obeying fan. I just lobbies attitude. He's attitude is is one of the best in. It's something we need in that locker room. He has a shirt saying comprehends. Everything If you anna steal you went blank. And all i love it. I love it and he got. He got criticized the other day about being to to over white or whatever but he's a man of a man he you wanna buy like. That's the cover up the the airlines and no one can get through. What do you think with them. Datsuns projection this shaving on a you know he's going to leave it to the standards. Yeah yeah. I think the first thing to me is that he started four games but his invincible anyway. Surly depending on the why. The playworks Unit played in thirteen games. He had played in that wolcott game. It would have been a very different story. File was terrible. I don't care what anyone says. Trust out to me on tight follows on the back foot fall time. Most of my memory from that came apart from them. Pansies era is literally filed. Just going backwards. If you watch the tight you can say it. Every time i know that the villain away that there is well who didn't play particularly well the dark care follow is terrible as was like you'll but absolutely burn to a crisp by landry. You can tell that. I still got nervous. Some of that but the thing about dolts in as well as that he played a lot of gang. You play those games..

"It's more than just talent. Because that kid clearly had talent. Yeah. He had. He had spoken with people that I know earlier in the year about how you know, he really kinda tanked it after that first year, you know, he let us wait get away from and, you know, the production where it wasn't where I wanted to be and he really kind of made sure a year ago to really fix himself because he knew he was so close to graduating. So, you know, take that for what it's worth. But to me, the big guy this defensive line stood out to me. And this is no surprise whatsoever. It shouldn't be any of our listeners is Daniel lies from Kansas. He he may have been the best player on the field yesterday. If you would ask me a week ago who's the best player coming into the shrine game? I would've said it was Daniel is from Kansas guy plays like his hair's on fire. He's a good athlete. You know, he's got to get a little bit better from techniques standpoint against the run. But this is a guy I think has started potential in the NFL to play inside may wasn't shocking at all to see him have the day. He he had yesterday here. Michael dog. From temple seeing him up close. You know, I I kind of thought he'd be a three technique. I don't know if he's got to believe that get up to where you know, from aside stamp points where he'd need to be. And he's going to be an interesting, you know, a few years ago. People would have called him a Twitter. He might still be a Twitter. I don't know if he's at the end or detect I think the east squad is considering him a defensive end know he's got to keep an eye on Chris late from Syracuse really looks the part. He was the most impressive just off the hope watching these guys up close yesterday. And then not you bets from lavar, you know, from a Canadian college up there above the border. Here's really impressive on film. And he's not a great athlete, and he's not super big you actually, much smaller impersonal, and I would hope to see when he's a technician as a pass rusher used his hands. Very very well. It's me he's one of the best pure pass rushers. Especially off the edge down here. Tried game. Taking a look now at some of the linebacker names friend couple of jump out to me because I covered them this year Khalil Hodge at buffalo. And Ulysses Gilbert, Akron was interesting about those two guys is to me they're like polar opposites Gilbert runs. Extremely well. You know, the Akron coaches told me he's like a four four forty guy, which means he's probably four or five. But then you got hide who didn't run as well. But Gilbert didn't know we see things or find things as well as he should. Meanwhile, high drilling knows how to hunt. I mean. And that's how the coaches that the UB defense, according to describe these men he just he just knows how to hunt and he does. And but I guess I was a little worried about his athleticism. Yeah. That's honestly, both those guys are what you typically see at that position here at the shrine game. Usually when before I come. Down here. What are the things? I'm always looking for is like who are the guys that are that are just a notch above threat because we talked about earlier not all these guys are gonna get drafted on all these guys are gonna make it. So you're looking to see at the shrine game the NFL PA game who are the guys that are just a notch above in terms of their movement skills or just in terms of how they play the game. And to me hygiene Gilbert, revised that you typically see here at the shrine game. I didn't see them in either way exactly how you described them was how I saw them at. And that's you know, they both got their set. Elimidate trae Watson from Maryland. I would throw into that same group. He's you know, he's got great ball skills. He's pretty instinct of these pre tough, he'll bang, but he's not he's not a great athlete. I worry about him playing space at the next level..
