"For the steelers this year. That's a lot more than he's ever done. You need to monitor the hits. He takes you need to monitor how much he plays so for me. Backup backup running back as a key position simply for the fact. We want nause harris to be fresh at the end of the season. We don't want him to be run down and not the same runner anymore. We don't want want him with all these nagging injuries and still trying to get it out and going to say like doing something where. He's pushing himself too hard and ended the series injury. I don't want that the backup running back situation is one that makes me nervous because we need one. That's good and can take snaps away from from nausea heiress zach. Banner is an interesting one. If you wanna get into offensive line stuff now but zach. Banner is he looked really good. The one preseason game. He played a bit in and go field for those. That are listening on the podcast platform. Day scofield throws up. it's almost like someone predicted. The steelers would put these players in the on the i. r. and bring back the ones they did. Which give davis credit. He's he's typically right around here. So dave another home run for bt. Sc surprise surprise. The steelers will not enter the season with zero backup guards. You're not gonna do it. Was it was funny too. Because when they caught him. I was just like the steelers. Currently have no backup guards on the roster. They had four tackles two guards and two centers. Yeah so so is that is that banner as a loss of but we haven't. I mean we haven't had him. It's not really. Can you label someone a loss. If they haven't been there right he's played. He's played four quarters. Total sense you know week. One started of last season and one of the course was in the free season. We'll see they'll adjust ended. It may give dan moore junior a chance to actually play when a job. Dan moore junior starting off the year. There's duffy a conversation. I wanna have. These tackles but yes that dan more getting this job. I feel like there's a chance he doesn't give give it back like as well as he's performed at left tackle if he plays good. I know the steelers thing like all your rookie. That they did it last year. Frustratingly benching kevin dotson. But is there a legitimate. Shot that dan moore junior takes left. Tackle job has at least three weeks to operate in it and keeps it for the rest of the year. What do you think there's a good chance of that. I think there is a good chance of that. I know the steelers have had some issues with kevin dotson his attitude on if it's his work ethic or like his work in the film room or something like that on the field he's dominant just lineup. Mall people Whatever they had with him he had those issues. Dan moore junior. I think he has a legit shot. Especially with as much as Tacoma core for has struggled in the preseason at left tackle Where he actually was better at right tackle which is strange So zach banner. Coming back you could see is one hundred percent. Can he retake his job back. And then it'd be you know cancun For beat out. Dan moore junior could happen. But may i'm. I'm gonna look forward to that. E everyone remembers the dwayne haskins. Big drive that he had where it was the left side of the line. Basically just bulldozing everyone and and setting up incredible holes for running backs where it was dan. Moore junior kevin johnson and then at center was. Jc asked an hour. And they those three were just killing it out there so those two kendra green man. They they could be something special. Sean manhattan puts five dollars in the tip jars is more than that left. Tackle left guard. That's that's what it's going to start the year off as like that. That's what you're going to get for at least three weeks They they've been a people mover. So i wouldn't be surprised by that. In the slightest. If it extends past as three week period like jefferson. i spoke about something you want to. I don't know that. Jeffrey honestly honesty. If dan moore can take that job if he and johnson can can be as good as they were you know obviously. They were facing backups at the time. But if they can translate that to push around starters because they just push guys around they pushed the entire like defense out of the way and jalen samuels is running through holes. You could drive a truck through for ten yards before he got touched like they were legit dominating the entire game. It was ugly. It was like alabama verses. Nobody you know. It was like that. That bad if they can get good push and do well against starters in the nfl you could. You could swing a you could swing a loss into a win with that. Kinda run blocking and nausea harris at running back. He didn't have those holes yet. The preseason you never had those two together on the line there he for most of it he had you know. Rashawn coward and tacoma. Cora for dodgy hasn't run behind those two e it could be. It could be great. I am excited for it now. There's something i also want to address the live chat here. A lot of people are trying to say zach. Banner socks he's overrated. He's this he's that like honesty zach manner. When he's been healthy has been a a great run blocker. Haven't seen enough of in truly judge him in pasro but his his swing tackle this. Of course the steelers run the ball majority of the time so we did get to see your of him as a run blocker and about fifty two snaps of it as well in his in the previous season before he tours. Acl do you think it's a fair assessment of people calling banner overrated or is that Just because he hasn't been healthy well the one game he did play he played all but one snap next to stephan was new ski. Who was absolutely terrible in that game and he played one. Snap next to kevin dots and it was a pass play. And that's the play zach. Banner got hurt on like so. They played exactly one snap together. But banner is as a run blocker. He's as good as marcus. Gilbert ever was like he just is a really good run blocker. He's especially good on inside zone. Plays working off double teams and get into the second level or he is. He is great at that. He is going to make a difference. If he's healthy and playing he will be a difference in the run game and he solid enough impasse protection He's not great but he solid. So i i would be excited. Man a line of dan moore junior. Kevin dotson kendrick green trae turner and zach. Banner would be on.

"Saying it was very good. But it was definitely his best game and he was going up against the other teams once. Dan moore junior and it right. Tackle really struggled. That's why i'd kind of talked about this before. And i was not shocked and practice on monday to hear that they were trying. Chook s- a little bit at right tackle and letting damn more. Junior plays summit left. We'll talk about that. Because of zach manner in practice on monday. So we'll we'll we'll talk about that later so that because that's going with the fifty three but so there was some things you could take away in some things that weren't good that you could figure out. I mean jeans. Pierre was the one player that step stood out head and shoulders above everyone else and it was what it was but you could get some individual things about what was going to happen. But in essence. I'm ready to maryland. I thought there were a couple of other guys that i think solidified their spot in some of that played into what we saw today as. Well exactly. I thought henry mondo played very well. Jeffrey benedict thing is sometimes. I listen to the jeffrey too much. Like for example. I listened to jeffrey too much. And he had me convinced that trey. Edmunds was the only guy that can play the h. Back and he was going to get the last running back spot. I did that in my 53-man prediction. That one was wrong. I got fifty out of fifty three right with the prediction. So wasn't terrible. Especially that. I got all the specialists and we'll get to that and very very shortly so but he was saying for a long time. It was like you know you're right. Mondo was the next guy behind warmly. It was like mondo was never even in question. Based on their the way they were allotting playing time it so and he he was out there against you know. Someone's in really. I felt held his out. Yeah what was he was he. Yeah kicking all those ones around like crazy. No but he wasn't getting blown off the ball. He was holding his own flow into the ball. Doing the things that you want. You know the three in our three four defense today. Yeah well and here's like. I did the articles in the pf scores. Because i report them. There was only two players on on either. You know at all any aspect of the game that scored an overall grade of eighty or higher in this game for the steelers and those two players were james peer with ninety point zero and henry mondo with an eighty five point. Nine marcus allen was closed with a nine point four and he was actually doing well. We're going to talk about marcus allen because with some stuff because once again i sometimes i do. Listen to jeffrey. More than more than don't and some interesting stuff with him so one last thing. I want to say about this game. Because i really we really we know you all want to talk about the roster. We want to talk about the set away. Is i actually appreciated this game more later in the weekend when you see one. Jk dobbins go down for the season own. Yes we are like when you're a genius. Glad you changed your mind about playing in all four games. Nowhere about that you know if you lose someone. The first game of the season that's different than losing someone. Your last preseason game because when you know you're yet your your first thought through your mind was uh should've said yes exactly exactly exactly so rich. Let's dive into this. Get what we're gonna do is we're going to one side of the ball to finish up the first half here. Then we'll go to the other side of the special teams in the second half and talk and make sure we give all the details of the of the contest. I'm gonna let you pick. Do you want to start an offense or defense. Oh i don't care it doesn't matter okay Well then we'll just go through in order that we that we did it there and the article at still kurt dot com your one-stop shop for all things pittsburgh steelers and we'll go with the offense. Okay okay sounds good quarterbacks. It was the three everyone expected but there was a little side note. Yes it was ben. Roethlisberger mason rudolph. Dwayne haskins way expected. Three there was three. Some people said they'd get by with to the dave. They did that in two thousand and they did it a little bit in twenty nine thousand nine. When the week ben got hurt they only two because he had just traded dobbs they signed duck back to the practice squad hadn't been elevated then. They did a whole to two players for a little bit even with that thing then they eventually got back up to three. They're better off when they start with three and if they don't if they change it up during the season i could see it but not to start the one difference was with the announcement of the cuts came joshua dobbs to injured reserve thoughts not surprised. Give that man a headset on. The sidelines broncos burger. Had one when he was you know it's almost seemed like now. I mean turf toe can be bad and if joshua dobbs feels like i mean they could technically do an injury settlement. They have a few days to it because he's vested veteran. He didn't have he doesn't have to go on waivers he's he wasn't waived injured. He could go straight to injured reserve but because he did not spend one day on the fifty three man roster. He is not eligible to return if he gets healthy. The steelers must release him. That's how it works so for now. It's just where he is and i still think that. That guy's a future coach. Anyway that's the. What did we had talked about. The post game shows like dobbs with this injury might not be the worst thing you know what i'm saying. So so that's how how they played. I think i want to say about quarterback no because it played out exactly. I mean that was like the easiest thing to predict on the roster probably yeah so wide receiver the only thing is people thought they might care they would carry a fourth quarter back on the practice squad because of everything with the cova protocols and they have sixteen spots. Josh can't go there now. Only other person i can think of. No i know. We're talking about cam. Newton stuff early on. We're not even gonna go there. That's just no it's not the right play you think. They signed duck to the practice squad. How he was he was cut by the rams. I now if you wanna body someone that knows knows the system. Then you got it you know. That's it you know frog. What's the guy from was from slippery rock that was in rookie minicamp but didn't get a contract. I doubt that would be either. I think they'd be better off than someone like duck or they might just go with the three they have and say We'll we'll pick up someone else later if it seems like we really. Yep yep. so. That's that's quarterbacks running backs this was the one that was interesting. This is somewhere where they could have saved a roster spot here. But at the fact that they didn't i didn't like the way that they went. I when i did my prediction. I went with what i wanted and not with what i thought they would have done. Because you know what they did. They did exactly what i thought they were gonna do. Yeah exactly exactly what we thought they were going to an swap it up. You know i mean dude jalen samuels wasn't going to be the guy because let's just say this if you wanted to keep jalen samuels as an h. Back i said this before trey. Edmunds.

"Told you there wasn't going to be a recap podcast on sunday yet here. I am the pittsburgh. Steelers had a non padded closed practice early sunday morning and early ish before noon and there were no fans in the seats. We myself dave. Scofield had no idea what they were gonna plan in terms of what the media was or was not going to be able to do and they were giving us a fans a livestream of news. And so when we saw this. Dave and i said wow we're going to have enough for training camp tracker for my recap so here. We are on sunday with another day. Sixteen if you don't count the date of his reign doubt for the pittsburgh steelers and these training camp podcasts. So let's get right to joe shelbert. Joe show ver the recent trade acquisition by the pittsburgh steelers was there in pittsburgh for the very first time and he was not wasting any time in the steelers. Weren't wasting any time getting him involved. And what i mean by that is they had him out there. Starting immediately when the team got into seven shots. It was schober out there. With the starters in the second-string we'll talk about that a little bit later but that's not really the point here. The point here is that a lot of people are really wondering what showbiz role is going to be within the defense. Is this somehow. Damning of devon. Bush is devon bush. Not physically ready. Is he still working his way back. We don't know. Are they going to limit his snaps early in the season. We're talking about devon bush. We don't know but the one thing is for sure. After the practice the steelers media got to ask schober some questions. They made him available and schober told reporters this is per prior. Espn news dealers inside linebacker. Joe sherbert says the plan is for him to play dime. Backer and mac backer also where the green dot and call the place. Where the defense. Now this is something wanted to go back and check. But i'm pretty sure that was devon bush's role in the past now in case you don't know two players on the defense can have the green dot on their helmet however only one can be on the field at a time so that makes things very interesting then also after practice trail edmonds said that schober was calling plays already at the first practice. So that's really intriguing to me the fact that schober on day one that he's in pittsburgh is already out there calling plays but again it leaves a question. It makes you wonder how is schober going to impact evan bush. If this is a situation where the steelers say look at the beginning of the season. We're really going to try to scale back to bush. we're going to have him on a snap. Count so to speak. Then it makes sense. It makes perfect sense if they say that schober is the guy that's going to be playing next to devin bush. The nella mia devon bush is not going to have the the green dot on his helmet. That will go to someone else. Maybe someone like mega fitzpatrick who never leaves the field or someone of that like. I'm not sure what they're going to do. However it just leaves a lot of questions in not a lot of answers. We'll get those answers eventually but as of right now it's just a lot of questions let's get started with the rest of the news and notes from sunday's practice seven shots as they always. Do they put the ball. The two yard line seven plays see who wins the defense when seven shots. But it's a little bit more competitive. They had dominated seven shots last two practices but they went for two. Three rothlisberger started zero over to then hit. He had deontay johnson short to score on his third rep. Then dwayne hassans came in Went to for two touchdowns rico bussey both times so the steelers offense scored. Three times was defense that prevails for the three. It seems like whenever there's a scuffle reported steelers training camp. Whenever there's a scuffle you can expect big. Dan more to be involved any was again on sunday. There's another scrap during live drills in yet. Dan moore was right in the thick of it. He's got that edge. He's got the the aggressiveness that adrian klemm preaches for his players along the offensive line. That's for sure he's turning people's heads. I'll tell you that right now. Watch out for dan moore junior. Not saying he's going to start the season but he might be making waves and might be in the lineup. Before you know it zach. Banner was back a practice in. This was actually good. To see the offense of line everyone except for kendra green was there was where they expected to be so in other words. Chew chor fort left. Tackle kevin dotson was running with the starters again at left guard they had. Jc has an hour center with kendrick green. Not at practice again right guard. You had trae turner who had had the day off on saturday in anzac banners back. But that's not what this is about. Zach banner is that canada. Put zach banner in motion during a plate at. This is eufaula. Jeffrey benedict's film room work. He did an entire film room on the offense and folk a whole series on the offense in focus talking about matt canada's offense in one of the plays that illustrated was his time. It pit against clemson when mad. Kinder's offense really made the clemson tigers. Look silly it was. He had tackles moving all over the field. He had several different versions and shifts. You might see some of that coming up in zach manner going in motion yet. It sounds shocking. But that's what matt. Canada likes to do buddy johnson the rookie inside linebacker. He's been playing very very well. So far this preseason believe it or not he kinda got a promotion with bush and schober in the as the first starting inside linebackers. The second group. Roberts bylane and buddy johnson. So that means a buddy johnson although it doesn't show up on the actual depth chart looks like he has leapfrog players like marcus allen. Leapfrog someone like ulysses gilbert the third in his now with the second team defense. Good sign for the rookie at a texas. Am we spoke about the offensive line being back. And then lastly the two minute drill. They ran the drill. I believe they started with the ball at the forty yard line. They admit fifty some odd seconds with one time out They did not have been rothlisberger. Do this drill. Dwayne haskins was working with the starters for the first time it really encamp. He'd see stirring passes to klay pool and smith schuster. This is what we all wanted. We all wanted to see. How is dwayne haskins going to do this. And so haskins working with the ones rebounded from back-to-back back incompletions dismiss us to to complete three straight throws and finish. The two minutes of the touchdown. Klay this per brook prior of espn mason..
