"One of those guys. That just looks older than what he is but he's athletic. He's a sideline to sideline player. He's very good in coverage he is someone that the steelers honestly they needed. We've all bemoaned. The fact of watching inside linebackers get put on tight ends running backs in the slaughter out wide getting burned. That is one of his strength. And so that's really good to know. In case you don't remember in november of twenty nineteen the game where myles garrett ripped mason rudolph helmet off his head and use it as a weapon against him it was not myles garrett. That was the best defender on the field. It was joe show bert. He had an interception. He was all over the football field. That was only two years ago. So if you're thinking well now is a long time ago schober. That was only two years ago if you need to go back and watch the highlights of that game. I don't recommend it but if you do you will see joe schubert. In what he can bring to defense said the next thing. Joe showboat is a sure tackler. He is not a player that is gonna dive at people's ankles. He is not someone that is going to shying away from contact. He is a tackler. He is a guy that will stick his nose into the mix and make the dirty plays. Sometimes when you get these linebackers that are more built for coverage they're more they excel in the coverage schemes. Sometimes you get them and you're thinking oh boy these guys are. They don't like that type of that type of game that's not show where he's a good tackler he and he's also very versatile. That's the next known that we wanna talk about. He is a versatile player. He can play either position on the inside. Linebacker depth chart he can play in coverage. He can play man he can play zone. He can play in sub packages. This isn't vince williams people. Sometimes when vince williams was out there they would have to say to him. Hey we gotta make sure. We don't get caught with vince williams on the field. That is something that was actually said vince. Williams had severe limitations when it came to coverage. That's nothing against vince williams. That's just who he was. Joe schubert is not that table player. His versatility can have him be on the field every single snap in. That's one of the reasons that on day. One on sunday when he was a practice for the very first time he was running with the starters. Now mike tomlin said after practice. This was mainly the you wanna test him. You want to see what she has so you throw them out there. I wasn't expecting him to be thrown out too with the starters. But that's exactly what the steelers did showboat after practice talked about how the steelers are planning on giving him the green dot the green dot. Meaning that is the helmet that has speakers in the ears so that the defensive coordinator or whoever calls in the defensive calls. They relay the calls to that player to players on the defense. Get the dot. But they can't be on the field at the same time so schober guy. They're expecting him to be on the field most of the time really interesting stuff. He's very versatile next. You talk about that high football. Iq when you're around the nfl for that long for six years and that's a long time. That's a long time you've been around played a lot of all year round that much football ye tend to pick up a lot of those little tricks of the trade. Maybe it's not just about terminology. Maybe it's not about xs does maybe it's about. I know how certain players play. I know what tibbs certain players do you just learn and and you can think about this any occupation anything. Think about the job that you have right now. I don't care if you're a busboy. At a restaurant. If you're at schoolteacher if you've been working in the business realm or work at a bank i don't care what you do think about the very first time you went into that job and then think about six years later you have learned things to make your job easier if you haven't. I'm wondering what you're doing at work. Because i can tell you that for me whether it's running. This website will use that as an example the first year iran iran behind the steel curtain dot com. It was a cluster. I kind of knew what to do. But i wasn't one hundred percent sure. I was always second guessing myself with headlines and the approach. And i never knew what was the right approach in now you just take go six years running it more than six years six years later my goodness i knew exactly what to do. Everything was streamlined. I had built a really great honest to goodness a great team and it became so much easier. That's the key has become so much easier and so for a guy like joe's schober who played for six years. Think about devin bush. He's going into your three. Schober has been around enough to know what to do to make his life easier. And hopefully he can convey that to players. Like devin. Bush and roberts splaine and things like that. So those are the knowns. He's a veteran. he's athletic. He's a tackler. He's versatile and boy talk about high football. Iq those are the knowns. But what about the unknowns. What about those things. we're not sure of. That's we're going to talk about right after this break. Stay tuned support for this. Episode comes from adidas. We all know when you go.

"They lost the preview an acl. They lost that banner. Do an acl. They lost devin bush to acl. They lost. I mean early. In the season stephan was newsworthy. Pectoral muscle in so he was on the shelf for awhile. You even look at other injuries. That happened on. Mike hilton shoulder. There were injuries all across the board all across the board. But you steeler fans can't say oh well. They were so banged up. Every team had injuries. Every single team was dealing with some type of injury so that surprise. We don't wanna hear it. We don't want to read it. We don't want to write it. We don't wanna see it but at the same time we know it's going to happen injuries or a part of the game. I think also you can expect rostrums from the steelers if they don't make a move and when i say make a move. What if they don't try anything. The word this okay. So let's say they don't give a joe. Haden extension resigned. Tj wa to a monster deal at decreases is twenty twenty one cap hit. I think there's still a a really strong chance. Steelers will make some roster moves this preseason and when would that happen my guess is it would happen. When all those other teams are cutting their roster's down there trimming their officers down to the fifty three and there's going to some talented players positions of need for the pittsburgh steelers that are available and they will go out and get some of those players finger. Ross cockrell he was the perfect example he was cut. The steelers said we need a quarterback. Rodman played extremely well so it is possible that these news can happen. Do i think that they will make a big roster move. People are bringing up. These names like avery williamson. I've seen michael kendrick. Ah it's an inside. Linebacker will obviously cooker. That rumor mill just will not stop. I swear it will not stop blame. Michael beck for a big reason. Why because he's always bringing it up still. Could they make one of these moves. Yes they could but they need to make another move before that like a hayden extension. What new contract Something of that nature restructuring. Chris boswell they need to free up more salary cap space. Based on the fact that melvin. Ingram when he signed his contract at one year deal. That's obviously eating up the majority of their savings that they created when they release david decastro so roster moves. I think is a surprise. We should all expect. I want to make sure enters. Everyone understands during training camp during during the preseason in terms of what surprises. Lie ahead please please please in all talk about this a little bit later. Please take these success and failure of these players with a grain of salt. There're players that will have a bad day during training camp derek players that will get abused during training camp. Let's try our best not to write them off. Because of one bad practice there will be players. that will look awful in the preseason. Let's try our best not to write them off after one. Bad preseason game and we know that that's going to happen. We should not be surprised. If let's say we hear that ben roethlisberger threw three picks in a in a training camp practice. Don't be surprised by that is probably going to happen. That does not mean that he's going to duplicate that in the regular season keep in mind and then the last thing in to be honest with you before. I take a break who the heck knows with this team anymore. I swear i it this team. In terms of surprises you could be surprised in so many different ways with so many different things. It is literally endless. You talk about the injuries you talk about players retiring you talk about players acquired everything. It seems like everything they could happen. In terms of surprises with an nfl franchise has happened with the pittsburgh. Steelers this off season in now going into training camp. The vince williams retirement was just the latest and he thinks that david casters released. Trae turner comes in melvin. Ingram comes in. It's just been it's been insane.

"You can talk about james connor go with cardinals then and then. There were players that were gained free agents that were gained by the steelers. You think about. I think were the biggest surprises. In my opinion was juju smith. Schuster coming back. He was a free agent. No one thought that there was any chance that jujubes misused her would be back in the black and gold in twenty twenty one. And maybe you're someone out there that said i'm glad he didn't. I'm not one of those people. I was excited to see juju back. He's a tough receiver. He does the tough things. Well he is. A hines ward type of player. We'll put it that way. And then you had some minor. Signings like ray mcleod comes back. Joshua dobbs resigns in a more acquisitions in that joe hague is is is one of them but then you had these retirements some of them like when vance mcdonald retired it. Wasn't that surprised it was. I mean we kind of had a feeling he wasn't going to be back anyways. His salary cap hit was going to be huge for twenty twenty one so it just seemed like they as mcdonald's probably not going to be a part of the overall program anyways within marquees pounds. He retires and everything. And okay that boy. This is. This is a surprise. No one expected pouncey to hang it up now. We all thought he'd do one more year with rothlisberger than they would both ride off into the sunset together. Hopefully hoisting the lombardi trophy. But i think what's really strange. The most retirement and this has been surprising. Was the vince williams. On the day the players were supposed to report to training camp. That is that was wednesday of this week. He decided he's not gonna play for whatever reason. We don't know what that reason is at the moment that this is recorded. We don't know why. Vince williams said i'm not playing. I'm just done and to be honest on thursday. The very first practice. For the pittsburgh steelers marco bali of the athletic tweet. It out that from the people that he spoke to within the steelers organization. Now i do not know if that's coaches. I don't know if that's front office staff. I don't know if that's ownership of. I don't know if that's even players. But whoever mark. Bali talked to he tweeted that it seemed like the the organization did not know until wednesday. That vince williams was going to retire. They were as blindsided as the fan. Base was think about that. You cut a guy and we're gonna talk about that. In a second vince williams gets cut. Then all of a sudden you say hey look into. You're not getting signed by anyone. We have back veteran minimum. He says shore. You think you're gonna get one more year With devon bush vince williams. That's a pretty good inside linebacker duo then it feels like the rug pulled out from underneath you i. I don't know what happened. Maybe we will never know what happened but still. That's a surprise. It's what we're talking about here. The surprises then. You do have those releases. I talked about williams game released. I honestly never thought that he was going to be potential salary cap casualty. I just didn't think he was going to be one of those players he was. They got him back then. He retires steven nelson. I mean if you ask me it was always going to be between nelson and hayden. One of those two was going to get cut. Who was going to be. I don't know it turned out. It was nelson and hayden were. He's still playing out his final year of his contract. I'm someone that thinks that the steelers could benefit from keeping him on the roster. I think he has a lot of juice. Left in the tank. They could save money for the salary cap this year. But still steven nelson was released and that was kinda surprising and then david decastro gets released. That was right after mini camp. And then they bring in trade turner free agent acquisitions you want to call it bad and then you know you just think about. These are all surprises to cash or being was surprise nelson maybe not as much williams in his in. His retirement. Were both surprises. Then i mean what a good surprise. Melvin ingram melvin. Ingram which by the way which by the way a couple people on twitter And i don't want to say their names. Because i don't want necessarily attach this to it when it comes came to a reason for maybe vince williams retirement. They kind of hinted that maybe it was because of the acquisition. Of melvin ingram melvin. Ingram is very similar. To vince williams. He plays on the outside but he can play on the inside. He can rush the passer from the interior. That's kind of what vince williams does. I'm not sure if one. Melvin ingram was acquired. Vince williams said. I have no spot on this team anymore. I'm done. I'm not gonna play anymore. I don't know don't take that. that's the rumor. That's just a rumor. I'm not gonna call it a report. That is a rumor but still. There's people that are talking about it. The melvin ingram being signed. That's huge. That's a huge surprise. That's a positive surprise. Two thumbs up on that one. If he can stay healthy that turns at outside linebacker depth into maybe one of the biggest glaring weaknesses on the roster to not not a strength the not the strongest position. I would say that you know you'll get defensive line or wide receiver. Those are the strengths of your of your roster. I'm not saying that but it makes the outside linebacker depth quality a makes it outside linebacker death experience. Those are important things so the question is what surprises. Lie ahead for the two thousand twenty one steelers. What's coming up. Are there any surprises. Weakened navy predict. Are there any surprises that we can. Maybe think okay. We can guarantee that this is going to happen at some point for instance. I'll give you the first one. Injuries injuries can happen. They will happen no matter what. There's not a team in the nfl last season. That wasn't impacted by injuries. In some way shape or form have there been were their teams. I should say we're there teams that were impacted more. Yes absolutely i mean you look at pittsburgh..

"You have melvin ingram. The former pass rusher for the chargers he signed with pittsburgh. The pittsburgh steelers so he'll be going to pittsburgh. I do like the move for pittsburgh. I think they definitely needed to address the pass rusher situation. Obviously you know they lost by duprey you know. They needed somebody to replace that. And i you know. Obviously melvin. Ingram is definitely older than bud duprey and you know he does have an injury history so there is that is something to keep an eye on. When you're you know looking at the defense. Listen i think when it comes to the steelers defense you know. it's going to be one of the defenses. Taking on one of the first defenses taken off the board as usual. i mean. There's still going to be a sack machine And that's definitely something that a lot of fantasy players are going to want. I think the problem with the steelers is obviously their secondary. And you know they do need help at the cornerback spot. I believe you know. Obviously they make fitzpatrick. And you know he's just. Starting joe haines getting older You know so. The the secondary is really. What's going to be the problem for the steelers defense. So you know. We'll see what happens with that. I do like the signing. As long as he stays healthy you know could definitely help the steelers out. And also vince williams the middle linebacker for the steelers. He announced his retirement. So the series. You're gonna look to fill that void You know in the linebacking core. But really i think the major problem with the steelers is going to be there or an issue is the secondary i think. Really what the problem is going to be. i think. of course they're seven gonna be fine Like i said melvin. Ingram stays healthy. This defense is going to be really good. So i think really. There's i mean. I think the steelers defense is still going to be. One of the first defense is taken off the board..

"Wile thursdays are the data be. I mean this is the first day of training camp practice. We're talking about practice. I'm really glad you're joining me here. I know i'm sorry it's not. Let's ride it's thursday. You're stuck with me instead. But that's all right but today is the day that the steelers going to take the field not in pads. They're going to be at the. Up emc rooney's sports complex on the south side. But they're going to actually be on the field doing their thing doing some drills. I don't know exactly how much they'll be doing. But we never got a really firm start date for training camp. We had several things. We were told that today thursday was going to be the start of of camp by one reliable source From deke pittsburgh sports and we also know that on wednesday the twenty eighth is the first day that fans will be attendance at heinz field for the first padded practice but then on tuesday night. Steelers set out something on twitter. That said oh players are coming tomorrow so you kind of know exactly what all those different dates met. So they showed up a wednesday. They officially reported they're gonna start with some practice stuff. Non padded practices today. The why can i cannot remember what today is the twenty second on thursday. And here we go. We're starting the to me. This means the nfl off season. At least for the pittsburgh steelers is over. Offseason done it is time to get on with his twenty twenty one season and what is even more fantastic is two weeks from today we will get our first preseason game the hall of fame game august fifth in ohio against the dallas cowboys. I don't really care who the steelers playing that doesn't matter. In the preseason really the the opponent is meaningless in the preseason in my opinion all because it's all about seeing what your players are going to do and things of that nature but became. go on. i'm actually recording this much later on wednesday than i normally do because to come to you as early as possible thursday morning. And that's because i've been kind of reeling with a law stuff because of the retirement events williams man. Oh man that kind of that kind of surprised me and it was really interesting because when you saw the interesting tweak. Sorry tweet from former steeler. Terrance garvin whenever melvin ingram sign and some wind listed out all the linebackers in this is crazy. And he's like yeah. I know something's coming and we're like Okay what's coming what's coming what's coming and it was. It was the vince williams retirement. I kind of it's funny. It's i can't see that thought didn't enter my mind. I i read that not even retirement. That i'm like oh somebody's hurting isn't really going to be ready to go or something's going on. What are these guys. Isn't gonna be available and i thought about the different stuff. I even thought about vince. Wins but i never really gave it any stock you know. I never really thought it was going to be but that. That's it vince. Williams is calling it a career crazy offseason salary cap casualty before the start of the new league year. Signed back in the middle of april at league minimum deal. Now he's moving. He's moving on to other things other than football. I at the time recording this. There's not really anything out there. Where vince is really saying. You know..

"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. Tomorrow thursday's the first day of practice where the pittsburgh steelers have both coach tomlin in several players at tj wadden. Ben rothlisberger will be available after practice.

"Listening in that was was last year's defense. Great i mean that's that all depends on you and your own opinion may no. It wasn't it. Wasn't i'm sorry he surrender forty points in. I know not all of them. Were the the defense fault but when you when you have that dad. He just got the bad vibes going in the playoffs. It's just not a good look. I look at this and say the steelers. Defense with melvin ingram. Now they took a step in the right direction in that is going from good to great. Where are the weaknesses. where the weaknesses. Now on the steelers defense. That's the question we have to ask one another. Where are the weaknesses. Is it in the front seven. I don't think so. Excuse me especially not now especially not now when you think about how the one weakness in the front seven that we all talked about before the season started before the out during the offseason i should say was how they had horrible death at outside. Linebacker will not anymore. If quincy rochet can turn out to be even just a situational pass rusher. What else do you need. Cassius marsh will be a special teams guy. He's a demon out there. We know that he likes to throw his body round special teams. My goodness that'd be. That would be absolutely fine. So i think melvin ingram's impact on the steelers defense is going to be great if he can say healthy. That is a giant a giant. If all right. I'm my goodness my fault. Okay if you're listening live on spotify green room and you wanna talk to the speaker request. I would be glad to talk to you. I know logan who is a regular honor show. He said he can't talk tonight. But will we see an immediate impact for melvin. Ingram will take a few weeks for him to find a role in the defense. Well i think personally. Logan that melvin ingram signing now when he did is really really important. He's played in a defense in san diego slash. La that's very similar to pittsburgh. Their defensive is primarily three four. He's played that hybrid role where he can flex inside. He can obviously rush the passer from the outside. He's gonna know the defense for sure. He's under the defense throw in the fact that he now is going to be entering the coming into the steelers locker room before training camp he starts. He's in head start. The steelers reportedly were interested in just in. Houston i have a feeling just in houston. Maybe wanted some more money just houston also have said. I want to be a starter. I don't want to be a backup. I want to be a number three and that's fine. Justin houston might have to wait until the end of the train. End of training camp. Preseason or even tell someone gets injured before he can actually get a role so think about that. Think about if the steelers were in that situation. Think about it if the steelers were having to wait in hopefully get someone on the cheap now all of a sudden you're looking at well houses person gonna kind of houses player going to mold or gel with everyone else. Are they gonna learn the defense in time. Are they going to be able to do all those things that you know. Kind of a habitual. The non verbal communication between players. I think melvin ingram is smarter. Not he's veterans. Be thirty two years old this year. He's been around the block and then some he will be just fine when it comes to understanding the defense getting acclimated in. I can't trust enough in my opinion. And it's just my opinion how important it was or is that the steelers sign. Melvin ingram when they did get him into pittsburgh get him into the game into camp and let's make sure that he is fully on board and ready to go when we won rolls around holden. Who's in the spotify green ramp discussion boards. As i know you talk about the defense at the end of the season but do you think. The defense is great with bush but healthy at the beginning of the year. Maybe it's not a big enough sample size. I think it could be very similar if we ended up signing nelson back. Okay so hold on i. That is a great point is a great point that with devin bush healthy and budget pre healthy. It's different defense. Absolutely is different defense. I'm gonna plug. A an article is going to be published on behind so per dot com tomorrow wednesday at nine thirty in the morning in. That's from kevin smith our own cliff harris is still punk in. It's all about devin bush. How his impact for the steelers defense. You throw in devon bush. You throw in vince williams roberts spleen with a year under his belt you throw. Melvin ingram my goodness. I think this defense is going to be tremendous. I don't think steven nelson is going to sign back with the steelers. I know there's rumors are swirling. I know that everyone's excited about that. I just don't see it happening. And despite the fact that that'd be great to see steven nelson come back. I think they'll be okay. I really do. This always comes down to me is. What kind of defense are you going to be. Are you a defense. It's going to have good coverage in the secondary that is going to get a hold up and let the pass rush. Get to the quarterback or you're gonna be a defense against the quarterback enforces dad passes. I think they're going to be the ladder. They're gonna be a defense defrantz suffocating. Their collapse pocket they're going to wreak havoc on the interior in an old k with that. Absolutely okay everyone. We're at the midway point of the bod gas. If you're listening to live on spotify green room go anywhere..

"Factor of the bucks. Get James Harden. Is Yannis onto the Campo. Want to get rid of Chris Middleton. Does he say? I need someone better than Chris Middleton Toe win. And I'll get rid of Chris Middleton in order to bring in James Harden. That's the way that deal could work, however. Has just Chris Middleton. Get it done. Probably not. But the Rockets are looking for a player and picks and what picks to the bucks. Have. They just traded away at least three first round picks and two swamps. For Drew Colony. Then the last one Miami. They just had a deal. Done with Bam out of bio. You're not getting rid of Bam! You're not getting rid of Jimmy Butler. Would you maybe get rid of Tyler hero? I would get rid of Tyler here for James Harden. And then you've got to give a picks. That doesn't seem to me though. Yes. Get in the superstar. Get another player and James Harden. That's a Pat Riley move. I think Pat Riley takes a lot of pride and dressed in Tyler hero. I don't think he's going to give him up. So pretty much the verdict here is James Harden to me is not anywhere closer to getting traded, and he's got to keep on picking up the intensity on the drama wheel.

They don't wanna You know if James Harden doesn't want to go to let's say he eventually turned around, so I don't wanna go in the bucks. Then the bucks aren't gonna give up significant capital toe.

"To and check things out. All right, so some significant injuries as far as in the NFL as well. We'll get to some of the key ones. But we're gonna roll right now since he in Pittsburgh Steelers undefeated, the only undefeated team minus 7.5 at home 47 a half. They really got pushed last week by Dallas. Roethlisberger should be ago off the cove it protocol Congress done a nice job on the ground. 5 24 touch. Stands. Claypool's Ms Schuster. These guys 76 catches for nine touchdowns and Deante Johnson in Washington have helped out six more touchdowns. Vince Williams is out, though. That's a key loss on defense. TJ what, but Dupri have 13 sacks. But Williams was really their leader as far as tackling and calling the signals on D Joe Burrow off the by doing a nice job. Nobody's been sacked 28 times. That's scary. Joe Mixon doubtful for the game. Bernard's done a nice job, though, with the backfield to himself and Boyd Higgins and Green, leading the receiving corps, AJ Green yet again the end zone boy Dean Higgins have six coral loss in 3.5 Sacks leads the defense. Josh Bynes with 50 tackles. Were you on this one? Pittsburgh 7.5 47, a half against Joe Burrow. Yeah, not a great spot for Pittsburgh, but expected since they come up with by, But I mean, since he's played one legitimate team this year, got one top six dead and type of team in the NFL. Bald more. It's the only thing they didn't cover. They lost the game by 24. I just, uh I'm dialing pitch for your money system, the number 7.5, but, uh, you know, my period hollering and again said that should be 10. So genius Steelers right is I looked, though I do see that That line is is off the board and some places. S so I'm just wondering. I think that I thought that it's because a big dam, but I mean, everything I've read says he's gonna boy self. Okay, worried me that that I found. I'm even seeing 6.5 in Jersey right now one of the prominent books there. Uh, that scares me a little bit that I usually don't have that much of an over like Nepal, aerating and NFL game without, you know, they're being American interests. Okay, so Washington and the and the lions. I'm not seeing anything out on that as well. Is that covert related to I know Haakenson was questionable. Kenny holidays out. Oh, could is going to play for Detroit. Haskins gonna miss? I believe for Washington, but they're going with Alex Smith. I did see 3.5 Detroit initially, but I'm seeing nothing right now on a couple states that I'm looking at, so Uh, just 4.5 is where I secret lies in Jersey. But you're right. A lot of books off here in Vegas, or, you know, Stafford's back over the issues he's in, you know. He's on the list like the way it is final state like a waiting list. I think you'll play Alex Smith will play for Washington self I don't know why we don't have a long lines up, but I think the books have been lately. Yeah. Alex Smith 3 62 as one touchdown three interceptions. Gibson's not been bad. McLaren has been pretty solidly in the way he's been the offense. Logan Thomas. Not bad as far as tight and Stafford 14 touchdown, seven picks. Adrian Peterson, DeAndre Swift Amendola 25 catches but no touchdowns. Hawkinson and Jones have nine touchdowns 90 receptions between him and then Collins and acquire doing a decent job on the defense for the Lions. Bostic still a tackling machine for Washington, see how that one goes Houston in Cleveland that Cunningham leads the way for that. Texans defense. 78 tackles already. JJ Watt has the four sacks, seven tackles for loss to Shawn Watson over 2300 yards. 17 touchdowns, five picks Duke Johnson going to step in, He's only Averaging 2.8 yards per carry. David Johnson's gonna miss this one, will fuller. You have cooks, Fells and Cobb. These guys have combined for 100 22 catches and 14 touchdowns for Cleveland. They should get Nick Chubb back, and he's still listed his question. But I heard he's going to play that I'll give you a loaded bag filled with cream hunting. Dennis Johnson. That's that's pretty good stuff. Jarvis Landry still turned to find the And one for the first time as 33 catches no touchdowns. Myles Garrett is nine sacks leading the way for Cleveland and should be a good one. Cleveland at home, minus 4 46. He had tough recommend the under now that it's already like over a touchdown. But you know, significant wind, and this one on may be very similar to the Lakers game. We saw a few weeks back where did not out for the total one that is going under? Yeah. Yeah, I guess I would lean Houston and plus for I mean, Colonel was the Browns that coach you don't mean something to him. You know, the Browns are getting out there, I guess plus four, but I'd rather clean under. Yeah, I say. I think Cleveland's ground game's gonna take care of business there and they know they need to win. They they'd loosen ties breaker to tie breaker to the Raiders. I mean, I just Don't know where consistency comes on an offense like Houston's. I just don't see it. They're very fortunate. Jackson Building get that two point conversion, or they could have lost that game. Jacksonville a Green Bay again massive winds up there in Green Day, but Rogers knows all about that weather up there. 13.5 49 the total look. Jake Lewton played a nice game, his first game, but now you got film on the kid gonna get after him. Shin alters out for this one short has been moved up to probable Schober, nine Miles Jack and Josh Jones doing a nice job for that Jaguar defense for Green Day. Rogers has been sacked on the eight times on the year. 24 touchdowns on Lee two interceptions. Aaron Jones is back Ready to roll Davante. Adams has been a beast, 53 catches 6 75 and eight touchdowns. He's missed two games and has those numbers. Tonya was still questionable. Last I saw Chris Barnes cash and trying to think if if Barnes is in there does the Darius Smith is outstanding seven sacks now. 28 tackles. I think Green Bay's a perfect teaser on I don't recommend seven point teasers. Or 6.5 Point teasers too often, But seven point teas. Air gets it down to 6.5 and, like Chuck says, you don't pay the juice of you win. But Green Bay minus 6.5. I'll be shocked if they didn't cover that. I think they cover the 13.5. I think Green Bay is just gonna crush Jacksonville. Yes, I got to transfer. You hear that back, Green Bay number one. You hear a lot of guys old school guys saying never laid double digits in the NFL. That might have been true in 1989 or 1999. It's not true in today's day and age since 2015 Double Did your favorites in the NFL 61% against the spread so that that's a myth. Now the reality is you can back on top of the Jacksonville is by far the worst team in the NFL when they play nonconference opponents. Five and 25 years suspended for the Jags. Add up from a greenback. There you go. Okay, So Chris Barnes is out linebacker leading tackler for Green Bay. But Christian Curtsey is moves up the questionable they've been missing him. They do get tackled David Buck Tori back as well and Lazard is now listed as questionable. I'd love to get him back as well. Tanya tight and still, this is questionable as well. I for will play and I told you live discussion alters out for Jacksonville as his gardener Minshew, So they stay with Lewton as far as quarterback. Tampa Bar Philly at the Giants Philly Get smile Sanders back and all Sean Jeffrey back as well as Lane Johnson. Giant Shepherd right now has been moved up to probable Tate. Who apologized to the team Golden State still listed disciplinary as questionable Right now it is Philly minus 4 44.5. And it's good news for Philly getting healthy on the offensive side of the ball with Jeffrey and readers back to have warred enough, all of them who have stepped up nicely in their absence. And then you know Sanders, Boston. Scott's done a nice job without him there, so they've got weapons. Now they're still gonna miss Nathan Jerry on the defensive side of the ball. You take on this one because I now it's up to four. If you like Philly, you let it get past to feel though it's not worth it. Yeah, I still lean our way, though. I mean, it's it's a great spot, not only its Philadelphia healthy off by, but I mean, you got a giant playing 1/10 straight week on Keep in mind. The Giants are only the 16 since 1989 and I played five consecutive games decided by three points or less..

Footprints in speaking of the footprints to the Steelers Right now lead to A path of coded What else is new, then Roth this murder among four Pittsburgh Steelers placed on the team's Covad Reserve 19 list yesterday, and we should mention here. The couple of the other guys. I always like to mention who some of these guys are, because any time you're involved in something like this, you're not just one of 53 55 year, an actual human being so offensive lineman Gerald Hawkins, runningback, Jalen Samuels and linebacker Vince Williams, along with Big Ben Coming in close contact with Vance McDonald, the team's tight end. So they are all in the protocol program. At the moment, we should mention that they could be back in the Steelers facility Saturday. If they test negative, and they don't develop symptoms, which means essentially, all of them could play against the Cincinnati Bengals without practicing right. They'd be back on the field Saturday for the walk through. But when your quarterback spinning the league for 17 years, he could probably miss a divisional game against an opponent like Cincinnati. He's played a million times. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless straight to Mike Tomlin with the very latest on those four As mentioned. It is our desire to participate wholly in the procedure. Those guys will be working remotely throughout the week and testing daily as long as their tests come back negative. We believe they're all four guys have an opportunity to be made available to us or Saturday. Somebody guys have more experienced a note is so lean on that experience guys like bin And this Williams may not have an opportunity to suit up and play for us this weekend, and they'll simply work remotely and softness stored in that way. So what do you think about that fella? Sharpen their sword. Big coaching cliche. Obviously here, if this game for whatever reason were to not be played, and remember games have been moved around the NFL schedule. They've been postponed even with the day here a day there, but no game has actually been cancelled at this point, so that's important to keep in mind. But it could happen at any point, Which is why the NFL is thinking about expanding the playoffs field. So J dear Point, the Steelers on track for They're trying to go 16 to know. But this game doesn't happen and they go 15 and so on. Another team goes 15 and one And suddenly we're not playing the same amount of games. What do you think about that? And what do you think about a team that could be on the doorstep of history at 16? I know, but I might not get the chance to get there. Well, if hypothetically that scenario were to occur, and they become 15. I know people can't remember what they did yesterday. You think people are going to going to remember the fact that Pittsburgh didn't play to Cincinnati Bengals a team that is last in their division or two or five. I love seeing the Bengals play. I love Joe Burro. I think what they have is something special there for the future. But if they were to miss One game or even two games, considering their next opponents are the Bengals and then the Jaguars. Now we're talking about the Ravens at a game that week, 12 the Ravens. There was that game a game that it was a fight for them to get through in the first place, the first match up, then I think that will become a big issue. We will be talking about it. But with the Bangles come on, man. If they were to Mr Game, we wouldn't be talking about it. They were still 15 really quick part to Jay's point. The one thing about the Ravens, you mentioned that it's a hypothetical because they're just Ah, higher brow. Opponents of the Cincinnati Bengals. But remember that game is scheduled to be played on Thanksgiving, and the league is going to make sure they have a prime time Thanksgiving game. Little over a decade. Now, they've been playing a third game on Thanksgiving in prime time in front of a country that's still by Detroit Lions. Yes, the game's always right, Detroit get somebody something after a night game and put two point, Bart real quick. I just wanted to mention that game is scheduled to be the night game right so somebody would have to be moved to a short week. That game is on a Thursday and for whatever reason Is into Jay's point, That one can't be played. They would have to slide a game in there, and that would be unfair to a team to make them play on four days rest when they're not expecting to play on 40. I think that was the happen you would just cancel the game you have to Prime time games, you would old network again. But you know what? Listen to Mike Tomlin. Is to tell you why leadership matters right? Because no matter what he says, I just have conviction that is going to be okay. That is no situation that's too big or too small for him. I feel like he's a guy that's really about the details and listen. Big band has been hurt. Often. Most great players don't practice during a week. Especially you get later into November. December anyway, they kind of let the backup handled. Nobody wants to see Mason Rudolph play. I think that the Bangles every time I think about I remember him like they took the face masks off, man. My helmet all mental. Take my face mask long, even like evil can evil look cousin stuff like that? That's I mean that would never die. But you know they're playing the Bangles. And you know when you when you look at them, nobody cares. I don't care like entitled Town. Is about championships. So rather you go 15 and 16 to know to me. This is a heavily flawed team as well. That's what makes this season so great every team that you say rather 16 and no brothers, Kansas City They all have warts. And it's all about who's gonna be in a play. And the thing that the curveballs you can't account for is called it because what happens if somebody gets cove it during the playoffs, and you and you lose a player that can't play? What happens to the protocol? We saw Justin Turner. What happens to the protocol? If somebody tests will be one of these mystery Nick Saban test out because you know you want to have to talk about competitive event. We're going to be there and move some of these The reason why the NFL decided to start their season on time. It sort of they could have the flexibility to add weeks into the season because the NFL is a sport that it doesn't matter about the weather. If they got to go into March, they could go into March. That's the beauty about what's going on. I think they can make up any game if they really wanted if they were to miss this game, if it were to be cancelled, Think about how that would be such a benefit to the Pittsburgh Steelers that actually got their bye week taken away due to that game with the Titans. Enjoy it, so this might be the rest. If it did happen, this might be the arrest that big.

"Check that out if you haven't by the way, but I look at this team and look at his defense in particular. And I say to myself, I don't think there is far off as some might believe. Yeah. The the draft picks have been bad at times. But if was some free agent money available, and they are going to have some money available. If they could find a way to maybe add a safety. That's if Morgan brunette still gets his wish leaves if at a safety a starting cornerback in an inside linebacker, you had those three positions. I think this defense could be very legitimate because I liked the defensive front. I don't mind the Outside Linebackers. I think outside of those positions safety cornerback and inside linebacker. No particular order. I think that this defense the only. Else? You would need is death death on the defensive line depth at outside linebacker debt that you know, corner. The cornerback position insult for that. I don't think this defense is as bad off as people suggest. So yes, there's a lot of blame to go around. And we point fingers we can scream at the mountaintops about whether it's Tomlin or Butler. But ultimately what I'm trying to emphasize here. The end of this show is this defense isn't as bad. I don't think as a lot of people suggest there's a lot of folks out there that think this is the worst defense ever that they're never gonna be able to championship they point to things like Vince Williams to slow. Well, you know what? Vince Williams wasn't that slow and Ryan cheesier is next in because he's not he's not that style of linebacker that can go ahead and take part of the coverage duties away from Ryan shazier, they need to find someone that's Atlantic to fill in that slot. You know that they weren't saying that about when already burns wasn't a complete head case in was just a a mess. They were thinking that this could be one of the better ones who cornerback punches in the league Dhabi's, they didn't pan out. So what do you do? Now, if you're watching live on YouTube, or if you didn't know we had a YouTube channel, go to YouTube search BTS's Steelers radio, I want you to leave a comment letting me know who you put the most blame on is. It might Tomlin is he keeps Butler if you're listening in podcast form, whether it's on ITN's Spotify Google play Stitcher megaphone, which we just transitioned to pretty cool, by the way, or if you're listening on behind the curtain dot com. R I'll put that article up there. Go to the comments section. Let us know what you think. But I ask that you give some explanation. You know, we had a little could we have communities at both both locales is. I don't just say, oh, it's Tomlin. Oh, it's Butler. Why do you think that serve its butlers falls? Why is it butlers fault? If it's Tomlin's fault. Saying thing let us know. I appreciate it. So you know, what I think I think it's Tomlin dull comes out of the Tomlin because he's the head coach. My my question that I have for myself as I say, it's Tomlin is what I say. The Tomlin is is responsible for the shortcomings on the offense. Decided the ball probably not needy. I'm a hypocrite. I don't know. Because maybe it's just because he's a defensive coach. I dunno anyways. I'm anxious to hear what you think. So let us know big props to all the behind the curtain dot com writers in especially my podcast hosting partners, letters, Lance. We by coz on the standard is a standard. He also hosts his own show. Yeah. I said it makes you check out his rain yesterday. And that's all about I in Tonio Brown stands for absolutely bonkers. Not AB eagles, absolutely bonkers. And then all the other shows Jewish previews dealers. Hangover check them out. We appreciate it. As always. I'm Jeff Harvard editor behind his curtain dot com. We'll see you next week. Another Steelers burning question..
"vince williams" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Are you today? But what's happening? Fellas. Thank you and happy new year to you. I am fine. Nice. That's good to hear maybe give us some insight on this alleged a fight that happened on Wednesday. The Big Ben is now denying and all these other things, I know he's trying to protect his team mate. And he's trying to keep it organized. But what's going on with the emotional stability of this Steelers team? Yeah. You know to answer the first part of that, you know, I certainly wouldn't call it a fight. It was a it was a bit of a heated dispute. What I can tell you. You know, we're not we don't get to watch their walk through practices. Now. Keep in mind. It's also a walk through practice Wednesday morning. But based on what I was told. Apparently, Ben Rothlisberger Antonio Brown. Ran a wrong route. And Ben Rothlisberger told him, you know, that that was the wrong route. Let's run this play again as as any coach would do as as Tiki would. Well know when something wasn't done, right. Hey, run it again. Right. And and Ben said that an apparently in Tokyo Brown did not like that. And angrily said someone's toolman China through the football and discuss. Now, look. Yeah. Head or anything like that. But he you know, he threw it in the direction of the huddle. And and and basically walked off the field at that point. And then just elected not to practice while the rest of the week. Isn't it? Petty petty petty petulant childish, you fix any adjective or verb. All that. And it's just and I will tell you fellas in an antique, you could probably understand this. I mean there are players in that locker room. Just couldn't believe as a as a thing. I'm play. Yeah. You know that the data occurred. And then I think what upsets some of the guys to while. I know is that when the Steelers then listed him as having some type of knee injury. Yeah. Then it looks like a little bit of a cover up, and they're and they're trying to make excuses for his behavior, which let's face it. This isn't the first time. Yeah. No, you're right. It wasn't. You know, it wasn't like it was any big fight between Ben or Antonio Brown. But it was Antonio Brown lashing out as he's done with every offensive coordinator or whomever else that you know, he has a disagreement with when he doesn't have you know, kind of get his way. And that's that's kind of what started where they go from here. I just don't know. I mean, you know, you gotta get rid of him. You would think so. But you know, it's the old coaches acts actually is when the production outweighs the aggravation do keep them aggravation outweighs the production. You get rid of him. Now Antonio Brown's miles of aggravation of piling high. Yeah. And I know that they've piled as high as his mounds of production. But I can promise you there. It's closing in on it. And I'll just be curious to see how our plays out, and what they do because this is just this is repeated behavior, and you know, like that. Yeah. They just don't change. Now they ruined teams in dairy. Let me ask you about Big Ben because Big Ben said earlier in the season. I forgot who he was criticizing. But he said look I've earned the right to criticize a players this way and Washington. Washington. Yeah. They're working. They're working. I would see after right after he. Yeah. He kinda dope for that fall that he didn't exactly know how is big been viewed in this locker room. We're Pete were got guys were obviously on his side with this call a dispute with Antonio Brown. But how is Big Ben being received in a the culpable? Anyway. And this are we overplaying that I I don't think he's culpable in this in this latest incident at all I understand, you know, I I don't think I don't think it's it's that uncommon for a quarterback to now. And then call WADA's is receivers one thing Ben always does always takes the blame. And you know, always I it rarely rarely throws a player under the bus. Yeah. And in that instance, I don't think he was doing that. He was asked a question. And and he said that and I think when he then was asked about kind. Kind of defending. You know, why he said that and came out and said what he said about I think I've earned the right? I think it probably came off worse. Then then then him calling the guy out in the first place. We're talking to Jerry dulack reporter for the gazette, of course, with the Steelers. He's rather team every day around the facility and Jerry's with the CRT key and Tierney CBS sports radio. I don't know that we need to spend a ton of time on this. But I'm curious the ascent of juju has that may be rubbed him the wrong way, just kind of back to the word, petty and petulant and jealous and all that as you you come to stars that bothered AB. I I don't know that is juju becoming the star. But yeah. But when I mean, I'm not saying just juju. But AB is when Antonio Brown is not the star when he's not the guy, you know, then, you know, then. Yeah. Yeah. Bothersome, and you've been you guys probably recall what his former teammate Ryan Clark said last year, you know, ABC does a good job of fooling people Ryan said yesterday. He was on again yesterday. He crushed them. He sees me said last year, he's not interested in winning. He's interested in his numbers. Yeah. And that's that's from a former teammate who was around them a for years, and the funny thing about this latest blow up if you will is that he's coming off a game a monster game in New Orleans. Yeah. Where you had fourteen catches and two touchdowns. And so it wasn't like he was being ignored in this game. There's a lot of issues going on within Tonio Brown. And the thing that the pre-game the walk through incident with Ben Rothlisberger. I think that didn't start all this time that just might have been diffused. Yeah. To to ignite him one more time. Yeah. We've had a little bit of conversation about this. And I I know Mike Thomas not going anywhere. He goes, my brother and my brothers very close relationship. Yeah. Big fan of your brother. Yeah. There's there's no way. Mike Tomlin's going anywhere other than staying with the Pittsburgh Steelers. And the question becomes what does he do about this, right? Because he we know he gives them a little bit of freedom to let them kind of police themselves or be big boys themselves. But when it goes awry light is what does he what can he do? Yeah. You know, I I agree with the first part and he's not going anywhere. And and having posed that exact same question to two players in the locker room Monday. Their answer is was and and this is about the same as mine. I don't know. I don't know what you do with that. Because to me, it's it's it's akin to a college football coach trying to trying to oversee and watch in babysit ninety football players. It's almost an impossible chore. I mean, these are grown men who are millionaire athletes, and what are you gonna do tell them how to how to behave. Yeah. You'd like to and you'd like to instruct them and hope they listen. But this isn't the first time they've had at least a conversation or fine with Antonio Brown. And again, it just comes to. I I don't know what you do because it's not gonna stop it. Maybe this. This extreme action isn't going to repeat itself. Then again each action each time gets a little bit worse. This just isn't a Facebook locker room interview. You know, it's gone beyond that. And then you know, we skip the he skipped the Monday meeting after the Kansas City game. And then you had a couple of the off-field things, you know, the speeding ticket. You know, let's face it coaches. They don't like to see it happen. As long as nobody gets hurt. You know, it's like, oh, well, you got a speeding ticket. I don't think anybody holds that against him. Now, there's just a lot of things going on with Antonio Brown. And I think what's disappoints. The Steelers is all this stuff. Whatever is causing it on the outside. I think third disappointed that you know, his family is his teammates the people who protect them and care bottom. And and quote love him or the players in that locker room that locker room is his sanctuary, and yes, he's bringing whatever problems are are bedeviling him inside that locker room and disrupting the team, and I think that's what disappoints the Steelers as much as this seems to understand that this seems to be a little deeper than just ego as something seems to be alone. I would agree. Is there an attitude to change to trade him? You know what I'm getting to? I I can't. The pulse of the locker room. But I absolutely I that that point has been brought up to me by at least one teammate and another that I'm aware of gotta go. Yeah. Jerry, relative really you go back into a locker room at the start of the season. And after all that everything's hunky Dory. And here's one more point fellas. Real quickly, Vince Williams, Dan, their linebacker goes on Twitter yesterday and says I hate Rach belief them. Well, he's referring to his teammates who outlined what happened. So the the extenuating element is that the one team mates are now. Because they were talking about Antonio Brown. Drama in Pittsburgh. Boy this world, spins as the world turns out, Jerry. Thanks a lot. Really, good perspective. Thank you. Thank you, Jerry. Hey, fellas. Nice chat with like pleasure. Keep up the good work Jerry do lack, of course from the Pittsburgh post gazette. All right coming up next week that was very good, by the way, up vexed college football. A lot of things we need to hit. What changes draft wise does Haskins enter the NFL also want to get to the LSU UCF game. There's a couple of things to pull apart extrapolate from that in terms of the big picture. Do you extend expand expanding all that thing? All the stuff that I know that you guys want to hear about which we will do coming up at their update, which is right now, here's the man..
