"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..

"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.

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.

"So there's always a need to have corner depth on the team when asked about losing steven nelson. He mentioned that that was a tough salary. cap decision. and they just couldn't keep steve other notable highlights include. Colbert mentioning that. The team does not do full. Mock drafts of the nfl anymore. They just mocked for their team. They have twenty four guys in an order that they would take them and that they will make adjustments as they have to go but they really don't worry about what other teams do. When asked about getting vince williams back covert mention. That vince wanted to end his career with the steelers. He's a big part of what we do. Mike tomlin jumped in said. Vince bleeds black and gold. And he's not surprised because of the commitment to football. That vince williams has and how important he is to this team. When asked about the loss of bud dupree. Mike tomlin mentioned that the linchpin is the maturation of alex. Highsmith that we expect a big jump from year one to two when it comes to the second year man from north carolina charlotte when asked about what other teams are doing if that will influence how they pick. Kevin corporate says that the team doesn't watch draft shows and they don't get caught up in what goes on outside with players that are listed by the media. Mike tomlin says you know. I'm considered to be one that lives in a vacuum. So i just look at what's going on here. The players are out there. We just have to pick the right. Ones said colbert. Another important question was asked about. Drafting an offensive lineman narrative usually. Is that a team is looking for a player that run blocks better opposed one that pass blocks better or vice versa. Kevin covert said. We just worry about scheme if it's a good player. They're going to do both. They don't really worry about that whatsoever. Running the ball is not just about personnel. It's about scheme. So that was mentioned once again as a theme that they need to get things better schematically and that's something that tomlin mentioned as well. The two were then asked what point when you draft the quarterback and why colbert mentioned that. Three of the four. Quarterbacks are in the last year of their deals but they do have a very talented quarterback room. Could you add one absolutely. They just have to predict the value of picking a quarterback and wear but it goes back to ben rothlisberger covert mentioned that in two thousand and four. They had more pressing issues. But ben was there and they decided that's where they needed to go. If they have to do that this year they could but all in all they feel good about the four quarterbacks that they have in the room right now. Mike tomlin jumped in and said he is excited about working with a twenty two year old like dwayne haskins. Who was globally respected. Two years ago as the fifteenth pick in the draft. And especially what they could do with him. There were a couple more questions mixed in here and there but all in all that's the highlights regarding the press conference from mike tomlin and kevin covert kickoff draft. Week for the pittsburgh steelers. Stick right here all week long for all of your needs on. See as we talk about the draft and make sure that you're up-to-date at all points. It's draft week my friends. We can't wait..

"You're not worried about I hate to say you're not overly worried about losing contained because that's the type of guy that if you lose contain, you could still chase them down to catch up with Philip. Fat Nose tackle inside pass pressure, come inside get it their legs get it.

But if you're Pittsburgh and you play the Texans hands, you got a chance and let texts get out of this funk. By dropping back in the throne contest, if you're the Texans and you decide that you're going to continue to mentally allow smart aggressive football teams dictate your temple offense by the way they play defense. It could end up worse defensively because this team if I took the talent for each defense right now, guys player for player who's got the most talented defense in the first three weeks. This one. I'm not sure I'm not saying that Baltimore's not physical Jones and frank in Toronto. Matthew, about has a whole. This is the nastiest of the three right there I would say the Ravens are a better team unit working together. steelers just have a bunch of dudes all. I can promise you this. You know who flies around better than this team flies around defense more than any of them that several steelers, the steelers have the AFC defensive player of the week last week. TJ Watt was named at this morning. Ten saxes a team, which is second the NFL they're gonNA get after you create havoc.

But how you deal with that relentless Pittsburgh's. Their linebacker today fly. Yeah. Vince Williams, frigging run and one thing that does suck for the Texans is the fact that the steelers have only given up three sacks this year and this week David decastro comes back who's as a world our.

"There are three. Other players ever. Now. This is ever, but I'll tell you. It's post merger. That were drafted in the sixth round that played more games than Vince Williams and every game was was with the Pittsburgh steelers any idea who those three players are will that last sentence just took the guy that I was going to shout out, which was that takes Greg Boyd out of the equation Yes because. The Carolina Panthers. Yes, he played a hundred and thirty one games for Pittsburgh and sixteen four. Yes, was he was around her out of Fort Valley Miami Yeah. He was in the sixth round of Nineteen eighty-seven. There was another six rounder in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven, that played a hundred and forty six games in the NFL, but only forty one were with the steelers, one hundred and five or someone else you know. That was hardy Nickerson. Now six round of the same year of the draft about. Tim Johnson. Tim Yep Yep so featured him recently in numerous, Uni. Yes, you did any idea who the three were. Because you know someone who played more games, but he played one with another team. Yeah, Mr Third and fifth, but he's not the only one. There are two steelers that have played more games than Vince Williams. Drafted in the sixth round and played one game for one other team. I'm asking two questions. What's? Somebody said Webster Webster was a fifth round pigs in the. Kansas City chiefs Oh that was a great that was. That was a guest though yeah. But he had another year old. Line coach starting center Oh Jeffrey great guests, but he didn't have enough games in, but he was a sixth round pick. He was to down the list from Vince Williams and that was Ryan Monday but he did. Move on and play somewhere else a York giants, but yeah he's he's just behind. Vince on that list, but that was a really good. Yes, well I'm going to tell you the one. The one player that had played one other game somewhere else, but played a lot of games in the sixth round. Pick one punching Elkin. He played one game for the Green Bay packers. Okay. So but there are three. If I give you the year. They were drafted. You think you could tell me yes. Okay, let's go with the earliest drafted one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy six. Thomas. Jd Thomas was. Out of Florida State, but like nineteen seventy three. I believe you only one or did you three? No I think he went to. Nine thousand, nine, hundred, seventy six. I'M GONNA. Go with Gary Done. You would be correct. One hundred and forty six games played. These are all regular season I didn't I didn't bother to add it in the playoffs, and they were all with the steelers, so that's one. Then you have nineteen seventy-nine. Someone who played one hundred and fifty seven games for the steelers? Almost ten years. dwayne woodruff that would be correct. It would be to what if the judge and the next one was two years later with one hundred sixty three games for the steelers drafted in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty one. Nine, hundred eighty one yeah, and how many games the steelers one hundred sixty three? David.

"I'm a Tech Mobile Guy from way back. And I was talking to my son, and my son has an Xbox, and we saw your Walmart and the Matt Madden, twenty, twenty or the one with Mahomes on the front, is that twenty, twenty or twenty twenty one I'm not sure. What Is All that's only twenty dollars. He's the Daddy. She get it I'm like. I can't because if I get it, I'll be addicted. Have that addictive personality that that's all I'll do, and you won't see another podcast or an article for me again if I do that but I I'm not very good at it, but I'd love to but tecmo I'm great at. To have madden on the we, that's my question. I don't. Play. It was man all play was the name I remember that specifically I have I actually. My son now has a switch. I guess what it is, but that's what I have is a we because I like to play? I like to bowl. I like to golf. I like to do the things that that you move yourself, so I've never been a big madden guy. But I've watched people play madden and stuff like that before I think. My nephew, I think he's was showing my son mad at one point. But I don't play the game myself but I do pay attention to the rankings because I'd see as someone who covers the steelers how the players react to these rankings, and it's absolutely insane. We have the article coming out courtesy of Michael Back tomorrow at all these steelers on defense, and how low their rankings our T. J.. Watt is not in the top ten of pass rushers. They did put defensive line, and Edry's altogether for this. He's not in the top ten Kim. Hayward's not at the top ten. K. and the most thing that I think his flat up embarrassing for for EA sports with this, they don't have fitzpatrick in the top ten of safety's not defensive backs safeties. So they have all these steelers defenders really low. They have the steelers. Offense ranked higher than their defense. Don't they Michael they did. Their offense was an eighty three and I believe the defense is an eighty, two or eighty one does that. Does that make any sense coming off a year like season? Absolutely not one of the crazy things that blew my mind when I was doing some. Some research for that apparently Devon, Bush's only going to be seventy. Two in the game starts as a middle linebacker. He was outstanding. I do believe he led the team in tackles like that. Doesn't. That doesn't compute with me like I? Don't understand like it. Are they trying to market the game by having been talking about it? Because everyone's ranked so absurdly doesn't make any sense to me. Bad. What are your thoughts on the steelers rankings boy, do I feel old now because seventeen grey hairs popped out of the front of my head because you said technical. Not just. Just the rankings in yet you know. What to me. I know the players make a big deal about this is very important to them, so I mean I understand that I remember back in two thousand Seventeen Judy went for a ninety seven yard touchdown against the Detroit Lions on Sunday night football and he complained every the. In his. Press conference. He said has so I. Guess my speed and Madison was wrong. That in. Changed. His Apparently they do update it. I don't pay attention. I mean like I said I. Pay attention to it because I like to play a reaction and everything to it, but is this something i? Mean look at Steven Nelson in the year he had last year and how he got. No recognition for it. Is Us. He's part of. He's just one guy in what became a very great secondary I mean. Let's come back to bud pre, but dupree has a chance for a really big payday moving on from the steelers because. I said this an article for, and this is not downplaying Dupree's ability to play and that, too. Many people looked at it this way, but who else. In the League accord. Let's go looking at. PF ranks which I know. Some people think they're great. Some people think they're terrible. Some people think it depends, but just looking at them, but dupree's lined up opposite of the number one outside linebacker at next to the number, one interior defensive linemen, no one else in the League can say that that's what they're doing so right there. That's a huge advantage that he's going to have. He's still got a win his match-ups, but. That but that. Sometimes, we look at them. Always that is he benefiting from that? But then they're also downplaying all those guys. Because all of them are doing so well. The the seems crazy. What do you mean? Do you guys agree with that or it just seems like the more solid. Your whole group is the less they think of each one of them is an individual. You know what I am comfortable with that. And if we get back to the man rankings real quick. That hurts the most. Is Our steeler fans because they WANNA play they WANNA play with your team and the team is ranked lower than they have a tough time playing with their team. Cause I. DON'T WANNA play with the. New York jets or any other team, but back to your question there yeah, you know what, but the reason I'm fine is I would rather them..

"Pittsburgh steeler fans welcome back to another episode of the steelers preview. Couple minutes later when we wanted to be tonight. That's on me, With some stuff, speaking of me, I am Dave Scofield. The editor behind a steel curtain dot, com and I am so happy to be back with my friends this week. I really I missed it last week. I didn't Miss It. I was what I was. I was able to watch the show, but not being with you guys. That was kind of like well. You guys did a fantastic job and I'm like man I really missed those guys. This is great. To. Be Back with you all so joining me as always as are, this is this is the new crew. Let's go with one Brian Anthony Davis, our PODCAST director. How's it going Brian I'm calling bs on that one, so you were telling me Dave that you would rather be with us than at a beach with your brother Big Brasco, drinking out of a coconut in a paper umbrella and big Bro scoring a banana. I said Rod member of my family wearing. And the other thing I'm going say I'd I don't think I've ever drinking out of a coconut? Before I have to admit that I will tell you while the show was going on. You know it was already nighttime and everything. I didn't really have anything else to do. And that's what made me maybe miss you guys, you know when I sitting out on the beach and stuff during the day I was like who cares I. It doesn't matter what's going on, but. What's that? There's there comes there comes rich. Coveted down but. That's because it's nighttime here or at least it's just getting dark, but it's not out on the left side of the. Of. The continent I must say the wrong thing. Condit, we'll say comic kids. They country where one Michael Beck is hanging out here with this deputy editor. How are you tonight? Michael on Great you know I think I think I also Mr, their Dave I, it's It was it was fun last week. Just hanging out with Brian, but we're missing that third piece of our triumphant Tria. I'm so glad you said or or wait a second. It's the because I messed it up. I didn't say at this time. Actor triumphant TRIFECTA every go. We had to change the name a little bit because it's a different three. Three different guises all three, but not the same three. So here. We are talking about steelers. Oh man lots. Lots of nothing it's funny because there's there's nothing but yet they're still always something first and foremost. One thing we want to mention is that we know the big news today about the report with with the issues going on. In the front office and with personnel with the Washington Redskins, we do not want to dismiss that at all. We want that is a that is a very important topic. This is something that should never. We should not. No one should ever have to go through this in the workplace. But at the same time. If it was the steelers me would be talking about a lot more, but the kind of talked about before the show like how much we spend on on this stuff going on with Washington. I, you know I. Don't want to say. Technically have no mascot. So we're not talking about that, but we're. We're talking about the the reports that came out with with the conduct of conduct some of their personnel, but we're like. Maybe we should when it's not so fresh, get all the details before we really dive into that so rather than us it here and and and go really deep into it. We want to bring it up. We want to know that it's news. There is a fantastic article which covers things on the. Washington's espy nation site. It's called hogs haven. That are. That article has basically has more views on it, then any than all the rest of espy nation NFL combined today about this topic, so if you want some more information on on. The. It's there, but a lot of it is. Speculation things like that. If you guys want WanNa to jump in here and just say anything, Brian Yeah I would like to. It is horrendous that. Anybody has to be a working environment that this these kinda things happen, but to your point day if this is still very fresh and very new, and not, everything is completely out as far as I'm concerned and I don't think we'd be doing much justice talking about it, but the best thing for us is to acknowledge it and say that. You know it puts in perspective, and I'm going to put a lighthearted perspective on this. When when you look at the fact that the biggest problem and steal their land right now is worrying about Ryan Switzer, being your daughter wide receiver. Yeah, that's that's a whole lot makes us. You know you never know what's going on. They say it could always. Doesn't mean that every NFL franchise is immune to this. Chances are. This is not the only place that something like this has ever happened. We can. We can hope not all I. All I know is that I just hope that the steelers hold everyone to an extremely high standard. We know that they do and that's something that some of these things cannot slip through the cracks Michael anything you want to say before we. Before we before we keep talking about not talking about. You know what if I was taught anything going through journalism school is to get all the facts I There's tons of stuff floating out there of course if it's true. I've I've read tons of stuff. There's some absolutely heinous allegations, and I only hope it. It stuff that isn't going on, but it is stuff that is happening in our society so until we know everything completely at I couldn't agree more third direction on spots. Can only hope that it's not quite as bad as some of the stuff that I've read. Yes, so we'll just say we'll leave that out there. I know. A couple people said in the live chat. Oh I. Haven't heard about this yet. So yes, go go check into it like we said. We don't WanNA give any misinformation. I'm not know that I have that much correct information as well. That's why we're just kind of leaving it at that. There's another story out there that as brought up that I wanNA throw out there. Going to give a plug due to a friend of ours, seventy two players tested positive I. Don't think we have a season. Seventy two is a fantastic number you need to go to. LOOK UP ONE JEFF?

"A a. J. morgan burnett. You know <hes> you think about the legare blunt situation you think about a ah a good one was like the angela williams other very good free designing but you've darius green as in other ones they've had as mike mitchell is kind of fifty fifty. He had some good he has a bad <hes>. They've had some flops in free agency said while you should be commended for certain things they should be reprimanded for others. Well william william s how will steelers plan to contain james white. I think he could be possible possibly an issue for us especially when they blitz james white is is gonna be a unique task if if the seizure blitzing in james white is in the shotgun formation then i like their chances of james right. It has to pick up the blitz. It's yet to pick up the blitz. You're sacrificing yourself. You're taking yourself out of the play to protect your quarterback. If you're protecting for quarterback you're not typically going to catch the the football or run the football when you have players like barron and bush you can also cover that player from the backfield. That's going to be a match up to wash baron and bush rush versus white. If they get james white on vince williams the steelers are in trouble going to say right now. Go back and watch the thursday. Then i came last year last year against the carolina panthers very first dry for carolina christian mccaffrey made him look foolish the entire time that will happen again if they catch vince williams on the field mark my words mark the tape the twenty five minute mark that will happen if they keep them on the field and you know that's what the patriots are going to do. They're gonna find that one matchup and exploit it until you can prove you can stop it and that's been the issue with the steelers against this team in the past that they can't stop it whether it's rob gronkowski county over the middle rob gronkowski down the seam rob gronkowski on the post. They can't stop it in a key dialing it up until they you can stop it so that's why i think vince williams as ron says very here keep vince williams off the field as much as possible bushing ocean baron on the field. I agree one hundred percent. Go with your big dime have sean davis play by the line of scrimmage. I'm fine with that fine with that there need the issues are gonna have to be smart..

"And unless you've been under a rock the NFL's a passing league de NFL offense is are stressing defenses in the passing game more than they've ever done. They are forcing defenses to literally defend every blade of grass like Mike Tomlin like. To save both horizontally and vertically. They wanna get yak off you. They want to go over top you. They're gonna Tak you and seems attack you in the flats the best offenses. Get rid of the football quickly and attack bid players would smaller players or they attacked players who can't run in coverage by getting the ball out quickly and not compromising their pass protection. That's what offenses wanted to do. And by bringing in barren and Bush to better coverage players, the Steelers presumably will be better able to handle that. Also, when you look at it the biggest thing is offense of personnel. Groupings typically dictate what defensive personnel groupings you will use. So most teams when you bring in more wide receivers you play nickel you play dime. And you bring in more coverage people if you can. Do it. Now, sometimes Steelers weren't able to match up like that because they did not have the necessary coverage people. And so, I think going into twenty nineteen the Steelers want to be able to match up better when teams Goto eleven personnel, ten personnel. That's one running back. No tight ends.

Subscribe do all that stuff on apple podcast, Google podcast, Ituen Spotify do a search for Steelers who assert Steelers podcast Lance Williams behind the curtain, and you should find the program on this particular episode of. Yeah, I said it. I want to say the following Vince Williams will not play very much in twenty nineteen. Now the two questions after I make that statement, our the why. And after I give you the why there should be the who question is, well, why, why will Vince Williams not play much the twenty nineteen because regardless of the physicality in the attitude and the toughness that we all love is Pittsburgh Steeler fans that been vidi vici brings to the field. He's weakened coverage and a National Football League now illustrate that by looking at the opponent's Pittsburgh Steelers play at twenty nineteen. It's a package football league. You have to be if you're going to be an every down linebacker. You have to be very good in coverage. I'm not saying you don't have to be stout and be able to handle run because teams will run it down your throat, if they think they can because that minimizes the risk for turnover if they can control the clock impound you and beat you up physically. So they'll do that. So you have to be able to handle to run as a linebacker but you have to be able to handle the passing game and Vince is trunk against a run at the key solid in coverage but not very good solid, not very good by not. He may not may differ, some this just say if you look at the two terms, he's average. He's average at best we all remember to Kansas City game where Kansas City was able to go to multiple wide receiver formations empty sets in really attack Bosick and Vince Williams with Travis Kelsey, and with other white receivers in tight slot splits that can attack lie. Akers. And that's what the Steelers want to avoid going into twenty nineteen. If you look at Vince Williams, he played seven hundred and forty three of the one thousand and forty five steps you might be saying to yourself, how are they going to replace those snaps? You also look at the Steelers defense they play based thirty percent of the time nickel twenty nine point four percent of the time in dime. Thirty seven percent of the time. So essentially, they played sixty seven percent of their snaps in sub package defense in that is how they are going to replace him because they brought in the who in that's Bush, embarrassing. They brought into lighter players that can run one a former safety, one guy who has cornerback measurable 's that can run and cover much better presumably. Then Vince Williams. So if you look at the number of snaps that they played in sub package football, and you look at the guys that they brought in, you can easily see how Vince Williams won't play much in twenty nineteen. Now, let's look at who the Steelers are going to play at twenty nineteen and let's look at the most us personnel grouping for each. Now eleven personnel is one running back in one time in three wide receivers. Of that personnel grouping when you look at the Steelers opponent every one used that as their most common. Offensive personnel grouping, except the San Francisco forty Niners, who ran twenty one personnel, which is to back one tied into wide receivers fifty four percent of the time. So let's look at the teams in a percentage of those who most us eleven personnel, the pats forty-three percent. Seattle, sixty four percent the Bengals seventy one percent. The ravens fifty one chargers fifty five dolphin. Sixty two coats, seventy ram seventy seven cards fifty eight bills, sixty four jets forty nine. What did she tell you is?.

"But it's they they they definitely look sharp. Every time somebody changes jerseys. I get I get pretty excited. I guess except for when the Pittsburgh Steelers did it and went to the went to the oval numbers or the rounded numbers. I still hate that this day, and I want them to go back fulltime to those nineteen seventies block. But that's just me. Yeah. I I wish they would it. I don't see. I don't see the big deal. But who knows why they do those kind of things. You know, why they changed it? Right. Do you know the them seizing? So Dan Rooney. Looked at they change in nineteen ninety seven's cornell's first year as a starting quarterback. And the reason they changed is he one of the numbers on the jersey to match the numbers that were on the helmets. I never knew that. Wow. I feel that that I. Found out recently that I read it online recently. I mean, somebody told me about it. And then I read it. Couple of months apart thought that was really interesting. I I would love them to go back to those those blocks though. I don't think. I don't really think that mismatched, but they wanna go get stands, which is either. But with that being said, let's wrap this threat in filial Brown thing, a big bow. Is it going to get worse? Or is it just fade away? I think I think for the Steelers it's it's it's already fading away for him. And for the raiders it's going to get worse. I I'm almost certain of that as I am of me sitting here in this room right now, it's gonna get worse 'cause he is out of control, and he can't be stopped unless somebody stops him. And who that's going to be right now. I'm for who it's going to be either. But it was great to when Vince Williams stepped up and basically each weeded out that if if I know you're if I know your number call you if I know you're Addy how swing by or something like that. And then Jim Hayward respondent eight, you know, my address going by. I mean, they're noticing too. And you can tell that they are completely done with this guy and glad to see him on the left coast and. This makes ju ju and this was something I was trying to go back and talk about when we were talking about gun James Connor thing..

"Right away. I'm saying they gotta Vince Williams. They got in the sixty got Jesse James in the fifth and like then he's disputing that. Because they're not. They're not sexy players. They're not fobel players, but you need in as Steeler fan. Tony you've got agree with this. We have seen over the years where Pittsburgh has one with pieces of the puzzle and unsexy picks that I've done very well unsexy names that have done very well that Ryan Clark's not a sexy name. He perfect piece of the puzzle for that they didn't track them, but they brought him in as a free agent. Vince Williams is the starter. And he's done well for them as a piece of the puzzle. The problem is Vince Williams in the position where Hugh Meade him to be a star. And he's more of a a role player as the starter. So that's that's what I'm saying about. About that with Vince Williams, but people want sexy, Kevin Colbert's not gotta gave sexy. But guess what? We don't need sexy. I don't think we need the I think we need reliable. So sexy is for. It's it's one thing to quote unquote, win on draft and draft a player that makes you feel good and you can celebrate. But that only last as long as he you know, it's not about the regular season about Sunday's. And and that's when we win. I mean, anybody can win on draft. I it doesn't matter. It happens during the fall that really matters. That's very true. So we're gonna wrap that up. And so I guess the you agree with me on Kevin Colbert, we need to start giving. Kevin Colbert, a break and realize how lucky we are to have this general manager on this team. You know, I know everybody is upset that the only a three and a five we've talked about it ad nauseam after what that guy pulled. You weren't going to get anything more than three and five and the the say with the way that the the running back situation with the running back starter that you lost same thing that they were mouth content. Revel malcontents here that in more he was not happy. They're gone. You have like you said earlier, if you quoting common, you have people that want to be here in hostages. So that's where we are on that just coming across the line. Just some NFL news. A one of the last named free agent went off the board. Just now which is surprising to see some free agent news. But it just came over on my phone just popped up. So C J Anderson is now what the trick laying in one year deal with. I think. That's a that's a nice smart move. What they gave them. But that's that's the guy. I would have given a contract to. But that's being said, we're about rep things up. But we talk about all the great content on buying the still all the time. Tony briefly. What do you have going on this week? Well, I wrote something just today, it hasn't publish it. But I wrote an article about how disappointed that been rough bigger had to give up his radio show a lot of quote unquote, distractions which I think. Outta town. So there's no reason to get rid of the radio shows. That's that's why I've worked working on. That's what I have. I worked on today. So I owning up. You know, what is he the weird thing about our dynamic with you? And I is we agree. Most of the time. So you're upset to the to give up the radio show. Yeah. 'cause he you know, he's a franchise quarterback. I mean how much access you really have to him as a fan. He doesn't do many interviews. Right. He doesn't do anything social media that was you know, and most of these radio shows are manned by backups, and and you know, people like foster who I love and I mean, he's foster. Nobody's gonna take his quotes and run with them. Found. Well, I only twenty minutes. I love that. He's giving it up because for a little bit of a different reason..
