"Yup and. that's why big ben is going to lead joe burrow in passing attempts you have to feed all three of them the ball and normally i would say and man. This is a big argument that you say we can't chase last year stats but honestly with all three of these guys. I have it playing out that exact scenario again. I have claypool eating this team and touchdowns. I have johnson lead the team in and i have juju with leading the team in catches. They're all talented. They're all going to get targets again. We talk about porous offensive line but one way to get past a porous offensive line is to get the ball out quickly to wide receiver. Big ben's thirty nine. He's not very mobile anymore. They're going to try to get the ball out of his hands as quickly as possible. I love all three honestly. The one i don't get those deontay going last agreed. I don't get it at all if you give me a pick. I'm smashing diontae johnson. At ninety two where he's currently going. Yeah that adp absolutely. I really liked juju this year because of what you said there jake that bad offensive line. Big ben has to get the ball out quick and year. He averaged point six yards per catch. So there's gonna be a lot of those kinds of passes to juju. Plus last year. He battled injury most of the year whether it was his foot his tow his knee. He was really playing banged up. I'm going johnson all day in light jake said i would actually be taking the anti johnson i but the fact that i'm getting him thirty picks after juju all day. He saw one hundred and forty four targets last year which ranks seventh at the position in the twelve regular season games. He played in full because he had numerous games where he left with injury but in the twelve where he played full he averaged eleven point. Two targets per game was the number four scoring fantasy wide receiver in football. But when they leave in the middle of the game absolutely kills you..

"Podcast and if we agree chase claypool their most talented guy. He gets three catches for fifty four yards. I don't know why diontae johnson has thirteen targets. I don't think he leads. The nfl and drops he did catch td pass. Claypool had their one big explosive thirty seven yard. Play other than that. I mean this is pittsburgh offenses just awful offensive line is just in shambles. I don't care that connor wasn't there. He's not going to be able to run behind that line. Benny snell ran hard. But ultimately like you know steelers catching l. and It's time to push that panic button. If you are mike tomlin and the pittsburgh steelers right. Let's get to the interview joe. Cya johnson previewing the nba season. What's up everybody. It's jill scott and here's one of my favorite moments from j. dot. Ill the podcast brought to you. By netflix's new film my rain. His black bottom in the powerfully strong presence of my rainy that loomed over the whole world over everything. It's almost unbelievable. She has such free she was so free. You know what i mean. That's the way that she spoke to those. Those white men who know word ran her record label and wish she refused to do and she understood it house.

"Guys see him delivering. Or has the emergence of eric ebron combined with a healthy diontae johnson and juju kind of cut into chase claypool. Fantasy production is he gonna hold onto the ball and catch balls. Are any of those wide receivers gonna catch balls. I i think it's bad news. If any of them drop it. Because mike tomlin is a is a no nonsense guy. They will be benched if yeah already danced onto who has been their best receiver. Benched him for real with tomlin is now some of this one dr type of guy it an entire happy bench diontae johnson who's been their best receiver. He dropped two passes. He benched him hard like it. It's scary time to own pittsburgh. Steelers wide receiver. I think if you're in the claypool situation you got him super late. Hopefully you have other options against cincinnati. And which is our thought lost on band. You know borderline starting. Qb like the shabby a decent fantasy game. We think do you put claypool at is a boom bust. Flex yes yeah. He's not going to be your wide receiver to the is going to be that flex consideration like he's a type of person. Where like. I'm holding out making a flex decision. As late as i possibly can. If i'm down. Forty going into monday night. I'm throwing claypool..

"First of all, they had over four hundred yards of offense. He threw for over three hundred yards. They have no running game. They are one-dimensional and they just kept having their drives get stalled and they settled for six field goals. So it just it was like they would shoot themselves in the foot at some point in the drive. They didn't get any big plays and not just a one-dimensional team that problem is not going away. It seems to me to have some offensive line issues. Remember we talked about them being among the leaders in like contact. What was the Dodge before Club? Yards before caught that they were toward the bottom of yards before contact for in the Run game. So I I saw he played pretty well just their offense was just missing something day and it was I think it was big plays and it was the Run game, right? And what's Josh Allen known for big plays and we want him to do the running. He he was he was our leading rusher today. Yeah. He's still wasn't great cuz he didn't have the touch sense. Maybe you're right. It's something worth going back and checking out on I don't mind still having Josh Allen as my only quarterback on my fantasy team. No, I don't either but I I thought maybe I need to change that if Josh is my only quarterback. I got at least start keeping an eye out for others that might hit the waiver wire or someone who could be out there sure. I'm starting out on over Bridgewater month. That's not a problem. What about the game? They're both actually playing how who'd rather have rest of season her brother Alan. I think I'm going to say Herbert. I'm really am that's a good one. I liked it. We know that the schedules going to get rougher for Alan to moving forward. Yeah. Well, I don't know about New England anymore but New England then Seattle then Arizona, so that's not bad then then it's by Chargers Niners Steelers Broncos Patriots. It's a tough ending there. Okay, he's real quick what you got her murder or break a long as you're saying I enjoyed it. I had to choose a side. I would I'd probably still go with Alan. All right, Michael. Justin Herbert as my team's quarterback. If if I was like a general manager know that's fair Michael. In Frank Gore both had 11 carries. Scored Gore actually at 21 more yards. Great Tampa Bay 45 and Las Vegas twenties. We get to the lake games here,.

"Yeah. I mean now they've never mind I was going to make it really bad joke, Justin Jackson is your other loser. Dave super disappointed that he didn't get more than 10 touches. Joshua Kelly had 12-29 yards five catches for 24 yards Jackson head. He got off to a pretty good start catching the ball and then he kind of faded out of the of the game plan. Maybe it was because Jacksonville stayed competitive and the Chargers are just riding Herbert right now. So we're back to square one with chargers running backs long to trust. What about that Jackson? You think the knee may have played a factor? Maybe maybe the fact that he wasn't at home. Percent could be I can check the snaps on that too. I should just go back for the show. Let's go back to shark again. One one catch twenty six yards on seven targets across a wide receiver. Chark Steelers wide receiver multiple. Okay, fine. He's not going to get better if meant you gets benched. Steelers Chark or Jarvis Landry chart, okay, he's losers Cam Newton. I think he scored points today. I scored negative points for me and the league that I started him. Yeah bad there were some things and I don't think that we have no reason to believe this has anything to go has anything to do with it, but he was a lot better before he had to miss the week of action. Yeah. Yeah awful the last two weeks and off like there is some of it that's not him. His weapons are not weapons. I heal Harry gets none of the separation. Julian Edelman was apparently a robot constructed by Tom Brady Tom Brady took the instructions with him when he left because he does not look like a football player any longer. Oh James White caught one pass. Yeah, I I'm going to say this was all can only listen there was a very small window in the game where he was making some nice throws downfield. They were almost all going to Jacobi Myers for whatever reason but wage for most of this game cam seemed slowed to fire holding on the ball too long didn't run very much. I he just seemed really skittish and then when he did throw a pass were falling three yards in front of the intended target. He was sloppy. He was off Target. There was a throw to element that was behind him the helmet got one hand on tip the ball in the Air Boom interception some of the other dog. We're really ugly when you say it was holding onto the ball too long. Did you think there were open receivers? He should have been throwing to I'm not sure if there were not because I'm watching the TV copy. But if you ask me later or tomorrow, I'll be able to give you an answer on that. I'm I'm pretty sure at some point you could have found somebody closer to the line of scrimmage. Maybe the plays that were called were designed for him to throw downfield because it wasn't connecting those until after Harry got hurt and Jacoby Myers came in and then even then he was still making big mistakes and he got benched..

"You're taking a chance turning any Tampa Bay Running Back moving forward. The only thing that Ron Jones did did do wrong in. My opinion was his his work in the passing game dropped a lot of balls. So when I see that fournette had six catches and Ronald Jones had one that's that's a red flag, right? I mean, you know what? It's an indictment of to not just Ronald Jones, but where was LeSean McCoy right? Wasn't he supposed to third-down back? Okay, so so let me read it again Leonard. Fournette is the better Tampa Bay running back in PPR leagues by yourself. so I kind of want to buy it but you missed a real Jones. Mr. Jones. I know what you're saying and people there were people tweeting me. You should take that Victory lap on Ronald Jones now and remember Scott angle who was George know Joe for rho Jo Jo Jo was a no-go was his saying back in September and August. I saw this week share something and you guys maybe help me solve this problem in our f f. How about you just changes the subject because it's littered for net. Like I think this is the interesting Leonard fournette question. I I know I was kind of the Zero running back guy and the you don't need a draft running backs early guy. And in that League, I have Alvin Kamara and James Conner and green hunt and Leonard fournette and my running my wide receivers are absolutely awful. So would one of you PLS teach me a wide receiver of one of those running backs. Sure I played I think I think you should trade Leonard fournette's the point. Okay, there is no New England player that you need a roster buy you can you can you can buy it. I do think eventually Damien Harris will have some nice games. He threw do you need a roster cam I'm not giving up on I guess it was a he was one of my lusers will cover that as well. But it's nice because it will just skip all the things I'm supposed to do later. No, I still want a roster Cam Newton. Okay, buy or sell DJ Moore is the best Carolina wide receiver rest of season. I think I heard by it. Yeah, sure. Why not? It's fun. Next next week will say it's Robby Anderson Well, interesting did have three more targets but more me touch. This is Robbie have this year. He only has one thought it was kind of a fluky 1 in week one. Yeah. All right, DJ more. Give me give me give me a more. All right, that's it for buy or sell Express. We Are Young Like Loving Express. We've all placed our orders. He has gotten his wardrobe. Mine is on the way and there is so much. You know, how I know clothes are good, cuz I'm not great at buying clothes off and obviously I need the wife's consent. So we were looking at it together and she was like Blown Away by all the Styles the jeans she loves shoes got great ties as well on Express..

"Ezekiel. Elliott is not a top-12 running back by yourself. I don't know if I can page him twelve other running backs. I'd rather have off the top of my head. So I'm going to say that I sell that he is still a top 12 running back rest. Yes. I literally wrote in one of the five subject that I chose for believe it or not. It is time to be worried about Ezekiel Elliott's and Amari Cooper. Should we go eat it. Should we go through the exercise right now of naming 12 running back in about an alternate domain running should because there's an old saying well, I mean, I think I think there's probably like eight at least. Okay, let me know. I think we should do it cuz this was interesting we did it on Twitch. Okay. So Camaro off a draft right now, we're doing a draft know. We're just naming running backs drafts Alvin Kamara Yes, Alvin cook know he's hurt doesn't suck. Would you rather have rest of season is ich? All right. Well, you're definitely I might go back Derrick Henry, cook, even with what's going rate for sure. Yeah Henry for sure. That's three James Conner. Zeke yeah, I think I don't think I don't know if I can say Connor not with Benny Snell goal-line back in so that was that was one place. I don't think I know it's been multiple places cord multiple one year cuz I had a touchdown called back by a penalty. He had another receiving touchdown that he dropped also in at the goal line that they they were fighting games. I think he's at I do too well running back and just as he gets to Christian McCaffrey. Yeah McCaffrey. Yes. No. Yes. We don't know when Christian McCaffrey's coming back. We don't know if Zeke's going to be consistent as he wants was I'm telling you that the Dallas situation is rough. Yeah, I don't want I've got four right edwards-helaire, you know, then you get to know Todd Gurley who scores a one-week. No, David Johnson who scores everyone am you say no, but all right. I mean, I sort of Arizona Aaron Jones for child like three of my believe that they're not in the one dog. Aaron Jones Aaron Jones for sure, so I'm at right. Is there a Jones going to play next week who care like like are already had his by? All right. So like there's there's something to the fact of life. Yes..

"Nobody nothing. Okay. I'm really oh that's 30% you know. Yeah the three of us, it's 3% and listen. I got a lot. I got a lot of support for one of my takes today, which is weird. I can't tell the difference between the eyes a Johnson and JuJu Smith Schuster to like clearly see the eight of the nine on the back of the jury. They look exactly the same every time they Johnson caught a pass. I was like, yeah Juju. Oh, no, it's dead. You know who might who else might not be able to tell you. Yes for the two of us. The problem is bedroom plus Burgers bit confused here if the player results in lots of fantasy points, it's not Juju. Okay, so that's how you know, I'm I'm or injury is Jeff Wilson left with an injury. He was at he's three rushing touchdowns this game and he got hurt late seven Coleman could come back Jay Michael Hasty got the work not Jerick McKinnon. So, you know interesting and again all for the Tuesday waiver-wire show for the most part Phillip Lindsay left with a head injury at the time of his injury. He had nine carries and I believe Melvin Gordon had 5,000 finished the game with 17 carries 68 yards and a touchdown. He also fumbled twice, but he'll need to see one of the fumbles the flea-flicker. Oh that yeah. I laughed so hard. I thought we were doing the home team watch party presented by Lowe's on Twitch. So I had a lot going on. I think we were talking. I don't know who we talked to Vernon Davis today was cool. Danny Woodhead nice. But yeah, that flea-flicker was the Dead I never seen one that bad. It's the worst I've ever seen has to be. Yeah, Andy Dalton left with a head injury is awful and Ben dinucci replaced him. We are going to have a nice debate about Ezekiel Elliott. We got into office on Twitch today is even a top 12 running back that was being discussed..

"But late round six I'm. Taking moster and using him as a number two, running back to begin the year, and if I do get moster I'm even more inclined to go and get Coleman just to lock up the run game the offensive line still one of the best. It's a team that wants to run the football on Mozart's the best guy they've got I want to try and capitalize. Jamie. Do you think these guys were good breakouts? Taylor for Sir just because I think you know if he gets. Anything close to the full workload there MARLA MAC was getting at least. He can be a star I mean you know averaging two thousand yards in college behind that offensive line. You know the fumbles are going to be something that's GonNa. Yup hopefully not play again, but you know something to keep an eye on, but if Marlin I was thinking that Ben was talking, there was no Marlin. Mac, unless you say you know he were. Either protecting your forward, or or you know the ultimate decision. Somebody gets hurt on another team and they decide to flip Marlin. Mac for for pick or another player. I think Taylor could be a top ten. Pick right now. So he's got that type of upside. Most to me feels closer to a bus. Then he does a breakout simply because of his age his bouncing around the league. The fact that yes, Matt Breed has gone, but they're still gonNA dry mckinney again Joe. Walsh is GonNa get some touches because they like him. They gave him some opportunities in the super bowl to. It just it just feels like you know. He was so touchdown dependent last year doesn't do anything in the passing game. If the run game does fault, or if Coleman gets on a roll like we saw in the beginning of the season last year, I like most where he's going. I think that's a good spot for him. I just don't see him getting better than what he was at the end of the season, because touches just weren't there from the only time he had. The big game was in the playoffs when combing her against the packers and you went nuts, so he's got that potential I. Get that role so I certainly prefer. Taylor leaps and bounds over most I think most is who he is if he's going to go somewhere like he's GonNa go back with more southern before. Well it's interesting to say he is who he is, and there's and also say that he's touchdown to panic. Because I guess there's two types of touchdown pendant. There's the guy that gets a lot of carries, but isn't that good and you need him to score like blunt a couple years ago or something, and then there's a guy like most who doesn't get that many carries, but he's awesome. Way Touches the ball. I mean he's career. See signs the end. Yeah, but he does need to score those touchdowns. I mean He. He was touchdown dependent, but years Carey in his career. He won't get that, but five point six. I, don't know what to make of it. Because on a per carry basis for most has been an absolute star. And, he including the postseason he had double digit carries in ten games last year in nine of them. He averaged four point eight yards per carrier more, so it's not like his bad games and he has huge game seven. You know every single time out. This guy's really really efficient. and. Do you know Jamie doesn't sound like you think they're gonNA. Look at him. Be like okay. He's our guy. Let's give them fourteen I mean. The the most telling game to me was the packers game because he comes off that amazing performance and the I I think it was. He didn't even touch the ball. I think until the second half the second quarter. Of the Super Bowl in the. You're talking about the playoff game against. The Second! Didn't breathe a start that game. I think Coleman. Hackers Game Yeah. I don't remember started. Super Bowl cullman came back back and started the game i. just it makes no sense if If you just get the way that he played, you would say he should be like Dave said he's the best running back on the team's. GonNa run the ball out. I agree, but does that mean the forty niners feel that same way? Are they going to give him? Those type of touches is you're gonNA continue to find the end zone. Is it gonNA continue to be you know near five yards per carry I just don't feel like I'm going to reach for him. Dave said somebody's taking around for. That's a stupid. If you're getting him around six. That's fine. It's not a bad spot for guy especially, if you go receiver heavy, you want somebody that you feel comfortable with in run offense. You know I just don't see. Him going from where he finished where you know. It was a touchdown in what seven games season in the regular season. He was he was amazing, but These type of guys to feel like. They're gonNA regress more so than progress especially when you know, go back to what and said at the combine I feel like four running backs necessity, not a luxury. And he's GonNa. Use All these guys. He had seven rushing touchdowns in his last six games. He was the number eight, running back and non PR, the number ten, running back and PR and that stretch, but he did that with twenty was twentieth and carries so obviously those touchdowns the also. Also referencing the playoff games because he had five more rushing. Td's in the playoffs and scored and two of those games like eight of nine to close the the thing I think. Jamie noted that was his age. This guy only had forty two.

"Of course as always makes your liking videos. That's the best thing that you can do to help us out more than anything on youtube giving those positive ratings on the podcast platform but the best thing you can do is listen and watch. That's just that's really helpful just to just to be a viewer. But if you subscribe to the Youtube Channel and turn on your notifications you should be getting notifications while we go live now. We gotta make sure that all that still going going well because you know in the back end of stuff transferring stuff over from from Jaffa Brian and all that but that shouldn't affect things there but the other thing that we're attempting to do is if you follow behind the curtain on twitter that anywhere from fifteen to twenty minutes out from one. We're going to go. I WANNA throw out a tweet. It's coming if you know the show was coming. That's something that would be very beneficial to you. Also if you follow behind steel curtain on twitter you should get that and have a better idea that I'd like today. I say we're going to be going on shortly after four thirty PM. I think it was four. Thirty five PM. Had to make sure my kids. We're all set up and we're GONNA come down bothering battering the podcast and things like that. So we're trying to to offer that. So that's that's just if you took nothing else. Follow us on twitter. Let's see if I still got it in here. I do. It's coming across the screen for those if you watch it on Youtube. It's at bt. Steel Curtain still curtain is the behind the curtain. Twitter handle so those will be going out to get to let you all know you could go to the channel before the notification and see the show is set up even if you haven't started it and already been the live chat. Some of you do that now anyway. And it's great that we already see people in there. What are you starting? Come on. We also may be throwing in some bonus shows depending if we have various other things. We're trying to look at some other opportunities here and there and with other podcast with Michael. Coming in where. We're going to see if there might be all of a sudden like. Oh we have an opportunity for for a show. Maybe we we have a chance to even get jeff back on or something like that and rather than having regular show it could actually be a bonus show so with you have the if you have notifications on Youtube and if you follow on twitter between the two of them hopefully you don't miss out on any of it live but of course there's always the replace and there's always the podcast but for those of you that really to catch these live. That would be a great opportunity so real quick. I wanted to bring it up a super chat coming in here from Dave Shipley. He puts ten dollars a tip jar. Thank you dave. He said just continue to do what to do. What you guys do. A schedule would rock. That's something that we are going to to look into. I know as many of you know Jeff. Five kids also was a middle school teacher. Everything sometimes schedule. We do our best so we might have a tentative schedule but then also be able to offer more through through twitter through the tweets of letting you know a little bit more precise exactly what those times are. I've tried to stick the nine o'clock on Tuesdays for Stat Geek. I know sometimes Fridays. It kind of varies with land. So that's why we're going to want to try to do the do the stuff on twitter but we will be here for you so we're scheduled to have two steelers. Brunch with Tony Tomorrow sometime around noon and then on Sunday. I wish I could give you a better time on Sunday. But we still got a lot to work out. Because we always talked about left there about Lance being on the west coast Mike was also a West Coast Guy. So when Michael comes on for for the PODCASTS. That's that's another thing that we need to consider Monday. We should be right back with steelers. Qna with Brian and Tony. They generally around five to five thirty eastern. But we'll get a tweet out whenever that's going to go Tuesday Stat Geek with myself and my big brother rich. We generally go on at nine o'clock. Wednesday standard is the standard land. Should be back for that one. I think this week we've said WHO's definitely going to be on with Lance this week. It could be Brian. It could be myself. It could be. Michael Watt to see Thursday steelers preview. We don't know if we're going to go with a two man show for the or three man show from this point out but we are for this week. The plan is if as long as everything fits in there right for Michael to join Brian and I just just to kind of help him get a little bit more into the Youtube side of podcasting before we figure out if we're if we're going to be shifting anything around and then it's right back to lance with. Yeah I said it next Friday. So that's our upcoming schedule of things. Make sure you're checking out behind the curtain dot com. Your one stop shop for all things Pittsburgh steelers. We're still we're still checking out the content and the biggest reason that if for thirty that that you're the website that I feel that were we're having a transition that seems to be going pretty. Smoothly is mainly because of the fantastic writers at the site has. That's that's what that's what hasn't changed. We WITH JEFF. Moving on so far. I'd say so far until I guess maybe it make. Somebody had try not to be that way every every writer still on board other Jeff. So we're still doing all that we can't give you the best content possible so here at the very end.

"Beyond this year but I I loved. I want him to keep them all. I love their wide receivers. I really do so steeler. Fan Seventy four says if ben gives Washington half a chance he will show out this year the I I think the biggest thing that came down with Ben in Washington is trust. If Ben doesn't trust you to to pull it down when he thinks you should pull it down. That goes a long way. That's the deal for they'll get. That's the deal with Ryan Switzer. That's the that's the Ryan. Switzer fear factor. No he doesn't get any yards after the catch or hardly any yards after the catch. You know he's basically going going to get the ball and get tackled. That's why it was so frustrating when the steelers are MICA third and three they're gonNA throw the ball the Switzer four yards. Behind the line of scrimmage. He's not GonNa get you the first down. That's just not who he is. But Ben's GonNa love a guy that catches the ball pretty much every time he throws it to him. It makes sense Ben. That's the trust at Ben. Rothlisberger has he didn't get that early on with Jane's Washington. But I think that there's a chance for that to grow because I think Washington grew last year without Ben Rothlisberger and but Ben Rothlisberger was there on the sidelines for almost every game in order to see it so. I think that that's something that will be interesting to watch as time goes on so this has to say the Hopkins isn't fast and pulls double team just in case. You're not explainable. Just because you're not explosively. Fast on the line of scrimmage does not mean. You're not a number one that's a very that's a very good point you don't have to be a burner to be a number one. I mean would you call hines ward a burner? I I wouldn't classify hides ward is a burner. Classified Hines Ward. As a guy that that that was tough and knew how to get open. That's the kind of receivers that you need came awesome stuff. I like this question. He says which has the most yards catches and TV's. I'm not sure that it's going to be the same person. That's the answer to all these when it comes to yards. That's I think. Judy is going to get the most catches. I just don't know that he's going to have the big he's not gonNA get may not be getting the ninety seven yard touchdown like he's had two so far in his career. I'm GonNa just on a limb just to throw out names. Let's say I'm gonNA say catches is going to go to Juju but yards and touchdowns is going to go to the Andre Johnson. And I think that's just me and I am a-ok being wrong because other guys step up and do fantastic so my my argument my argument my point is going to be. Let's let's not worry about. Who has the most? Let's let's worry about getting multiple players a lot. That's much better is to say who you know our. Hopefully they're only leading the team in touchdowns by one you know or leading the number of catches by six or the number of yards by thirteen. Get guys all producing. Well is way much more important. So Cathy like this this motion. I wish you keep track of these predictions to credit the try. I'm GonNa mess up that where I know what you're saying. I'm just a just a credit. The people get right the end of the season. Yeah that would be that. Would THAT WOULD BE PRETTY NEAT? And it's funny most of these shows where we talk about what the predictions are. I'm glad I'm I'm hoping that maybe people forget about it because Probably way wrong. Which more than we are correct so As were says Dante is another am I going to say at third and Fifth Trust? That's kind of my thinking. Is I think he's going to? He's going to be getting into that. Realm into that style of play commanded that kind of attention so as captain underpants said. He's right I hope they're both superstars. I I hope they're all superstars me and I hope they all stick around. I hope they can figure out of whack so I'd like to keep going here. But we're we're were nearing getting close to time. That's at the end of the show. Here you all have been fantastic in the live. Chat is a couple of things I wanNA talk about with the podcast platform and the and and the website in general with me coming in being the new editor. And Everything WanNa let you know that I'm although I'm taking over as editor the website. It's Brian. Anthony Davis that's taking over his coordinating the the podcasts and do and taking care of doing the audio and all that that then goes onto the website. So that's that's the part of the job. He's doing very grateful for that Lance Williams like we keep telling him he's got some other things in and because of that that New Orleans would have been fantastic as well but just other situations kept that from happening. And we told Lance you know what lance keeping the talent. You just keep you keep doing what you do. And we're all good so we're hoping with with when it comes to the podcast that we're keeping a lot of things similar when it comes to filling in because Jeff was on three podcasts. A week so Brian stepping it up to do a little bit more. We're trying to figure out a schedule and honestly for your all's benefit everyone's benefit both you listening and those of you watching whether live or later on. We're trying to figure out the best way to give you to give you all the best shows for example. The preview worked really well with Jeff Brian Myself. It's just what it was. It was a good one. Jeff Jeff Lance doing their shows together. So we're not gonNA force something and we might just be doing some rotation rotation basis here over the next few weeks just in order to to see who's the most comfortable with. Who and who seems to be Being able to give you guys the best content and you know. Make sure that everyone is is comfortable moving forward. Both you all us. That's what we're doing so cat. Here's a question she says. How will the new Guy Mike beyond that is? That is Michael Back. Also from the live Mike podcast for those. Listen in podcast form. He will be on his he. He was a guest on staff. Geek a couple of weeks ago but he will be on. That's WHO's going to be stepping up into into some of the roles with with Jeff He. He'll be on Sunday. I'm pretty sure that Sunday. Because Lance is still is still dealing with say dealing with still celebrating his his daughter's graduation and everything that they can do with that at this time. That's why I was feeling informed day for those that may have joined late that it looks like Michael is going to be stepping in to do a show on Sunday. It's it should be him and Brian. Anthony Davis on Sunday. I don't know if it's going to be the homer nater and might be just a special show with something else because that's something talk to you all about. Make.

"The people that benefit that people that aren't being considered the guy so if Eric Brin becomes an enormous red zone threat early in the season and let's say he's catching. Let's say the first two weeks he has. You know three or four touchdowns then you're going to see either Vance McDonald whether they're on the field at the same time or not or or definitely the wide receivers getting getting more opportunities in the red zone because teams are GonNa have to focus so much on him so it really who I think. Steps up early is going to dictate how things play out later. But that's just you know from a former high school coach. That's how you that's how you do it you you. You're going off the scouting report. The next thing you know you've got one player you know of course with the NFL. It's a whole different level of this. Like you got a player that you like all we gotta look out for him will next thing you know. You're so focused on him. You didn't even realize that the guy that the guy next to him was just as much as just as much as a threat and if you leave your guard down that he's going to be the one that Burns you daredevil. Says he's an automated out Switzer but he's currently living in Ben's garage so he's making the team and it's not that there's not spots on the team for people We'll just have to see how that all plays out and if we have you know notice last year camp. They were guys stepping up and doing things that weren't necessarily being talked about before camp. There's people that you thought could maybe step up and early be something and they and they didn't so once once you get to your depth pieces that's kind of the way that it goes came marks was saying how he doesn't agree that they should take a receiver at certain rounds of the draft of her bigger needs. I'm all about taking taking a player that you think that like Juju Smith Schuster. They didn't need a wide receiver in the second round of that draft but what the thoughts that they had the feelings they had towards Juju when he was still there when they were picking like. We can't pass this guy up in the steelers. Don't take a position that is one that people feel as of need early on. It's probably because they have a plan later and that plan many times could be. Oh well. Let's let's not use corner because the steelers struggle attracting corner. Let's let's use wide receiver. There might be that there was a really good wide receiver that they were that that that everyone thought. Oh my goodness there fall into the steelers and the steelers take a different position like what what could have been because the steelers had someone else in mind later on that they're like. Hey this guy is going to be a steal. But we don't need to take him here and that was my question with the Andre Johnson is is when they took him with their with their first third round. Pick knowing that they were picking not that much longer. I actually. This was why Jeff accused me of being John. They Johnson Hater which is funny because now he's the wallpaper on my phone. I have signed many helmet from him. Things like that It was my first question was did they have did they need make this pick right now is this. Was this spot to take him or was it or is he still gonna be the next time around and they're going to miss out on someone that they could have had in there and that was a big question for people but didn't take long. I mean less than an hour of research and just listening to things to realize that they if they didn't get the on Day Johnson there they might not have got the day John at all and they made and they made the right. Pick to me the wise pick. I love it the way it worked out. I like Brian. Anthony Davis once said you know what happens if Seattle doesn't trade up and know. Seattle has two losses. But what what? Seattle doesn't sorry. Sorry about that Brian. What does Seattle trade up and grab decay? Metcalf would the steelers draft decay metcalf? Brian Answer is no. I think they still would have gone with the Johnson because that was the guy they wanted. So that's just sometimes how it goes. They might have a guy that like. Everyone else thinks he's a thinks he's a fifth round. We think he's a third round. And we'll take you in the fourth round you know so it's really interesting to see how this stuff plays out so sorry that. I just kind of went into that a little bit. I don't like getting locked into a position. I think the steelers last two years. I've done a great job in the draft of addressing some needs in free agency so they weren't forced to have to go do one given specific position a draft. Because when that happens it generally doesn't work out. I'm sorry my my live chat skipped a little bit so I'm just kind of jumping back in wherever I say it. So let's see here a little bit frozen. Yeah there it went and it's gone so so Here we go captain underpants. I just got here. That said he respects for disagrees. He thinks the next per star is going to be capable Johnson. Good will be great but I think Klay will have the report with Ben which will push him. I think you know what we can agree to disagree because I think Johnson is the one who's really getting that that report ban and I'm saying he's. He's on his way to superstardom year this year. So he's got a year up on clay pool and that's why. I think he's going to be the next one and if it looks like it could be both Johnson and Klay Pool. You know then it could be a situation like flip was talking about earlier where unfortunately my wife's Juju Smith Schuster Jersey might not be one that you'll want chilwan wear.

"As as said he says Judas too young to let him go he's a beast of a kid that's the one thing that jujubes got got going for him. Whether hopefully in Pittsburgh or somewhere else is that he'll have four years after this year who have four years. Nfl experience and he'll still only be. I'm pretty sure at the time he'll be will only be twenty. Four people probably correct me on that. I know he was twenty. He came into the League. So I'm pretty sure right now. He's twenty three and twenty four It's it's crazy it. He he is so young. Just that's just how it works. I mean they were. They were rookies last year. On the steelers that were older than Juju in his third year. So that's how the steelers operate with with With some of those draft picks is to try to get the guys younger now this year. They didn't go they didn't use. That strategy is much. They really didn't they didn't say. Hey we're just we're GONNA make sure we get the young guys and everything else they they they didn't they just took. They thought fit well for what they were doing. north talk wants to know. Could we occasionally see claiborne? Not Tight end roll for player to if he ends up starting as a as a wide receiver. It's going to be interesting to see how they use them. He's a big. I like that. The whole reason Chase Klay Pool was on my radar as possible. Pick to the steelers was because of you all the users and some comments and some emails that I got saying. Hey is you know this is before the steelers signed Ron that they said could this guy be an answer? Because he could fill two roles he could fill. He can help wide receiver. He could help a tight end. You know. I don't know if that's all the steelers are gonNA use him. I don't know if they're using that way as a rookie. Either but it'll be interesting to see how how he evolve as a player with them. We'll have to check it out and to me. It's exciting to see what they can do. There's someone who says that Jude. Ach Says Judy doesn't have the explore sniffs or the size and he says get rid of him. I. I'm not ready to write off. Ju Ju it's kind of hard to hold. The injury plagued season of two thousand and nineteen against almost any offensive player. I understand that you can but at the same time I a little bit more willing to see how different players bounceback for the most part. So okay Let's see what else do we got here? So I know some people just commented on other people's stuff this is good one from Logan dealer. Joe said the Johnson had fifty nine catches last year. Just clay have a chance to have fifty nine catches his rookie year. He says he doesn't think that's honestly it's really going to depend on a variety of things and the biggest one and this is the thing about people like all his Washington off guy out there. Just got the odd guy out or you know what's probably going to happen. Guys are going to get dinged up. Guys are going to miss time. But because you've got a great core solid players Publi Louis so I mean we say potentially Klay Pool because he was the steelers first pick of the draft which was in the second round that that you're hoping he lives up to expectations. So you have that that they have a. They have a great group so something happens. Prime example last year third round draft. Pick Justin Lane. We said it would be better for lane to not even have to be forced into duty. He didn't play defensive snap last year because the guys ahead of him or doing a great job didn't get injured. The only time deal with injury was the game in them in in Los Angeles against the chargers. So that's just one of those things that it was kind of Nice that they didn't have to force playing time onto him and that could be what happens with Klay Poll. They might choose to still get him out there still doing things but not make him have to step up and do stuff but if obviously if they if things happen where getting thin wide receiver. He's going to have to do that so I think. There's just so many extenuating circumstances to answer that. I'm I can't remember what what I projected back on the STAG podcast. That that I did I I never. I don't think it was that many. I think it was for some reason I was thinking it was in the thirties. But I'll have to go back and check that out. That's a good question came cre- wants to know DC Klay pool being in the in the running for rookie of the year. I don't because of how steal the steelers. Use their rookies. What I do the the way that's going to happen is if he is forced. Either one has forced to step in due to injury or to just. Is it player that they just can't keep off the field when when when talent shows itself? You can't keep it off the field when it's ready to go. I'm not I know the steelers mentality of let's not force it so therefore you might not see too much of early. Which really ends up. What's really needed to be considered with rookie of the year? But that's how it would be nice if if he gets into that conversation. I just don't I just don't anticipate it. That's that's the ceiling. That's the ceiling for is being up for this year's being for rookie of the year came so so here we go from five star. Matchup says what do you think? The target share works out between the whiteouts like Johnson Juju Hebron Washington fans clay. I think that's going to change based on. I mean we could say that now but it could be completely different and week to week. Twelve based on our players are playing if what? I'm saying as a whole premise of this Said it is true and the Today Johnson. Bus Out and is the next superstar. He's going to be getting a lot of attention and as he gets a lot of attention. That's going to open up some other targets for other people now if it's Juju that comes out and right off. The Bat is instantly showing that he's he's back into two thousand eighteen form. He's going to get a lot of attention. And then that means we're going to be more more targets for someone like Johnson and company. So that's just kind of the nature of how it goes sometimes sometimes being Vegan. I.

"His rookie year. I remember being there for for one of them at the stadium and seeing him and him there so that's just one of those one of those things that they will try to sometimes may try to eat them in but if he's out there you know showing that he needs to get on the field the steelers gonNA find a way to get him on the field. I remember Washington. We forget about it. I've messed it up on a show before that Washington is who is who led the steelers in receiving yards last year with his play. So there's going to be. There's I know there's only one football but we know that the our future hall of fame quarterback is coming back. I say we meeting steelers fans. He's our our beloved guy. We know that he's coming back Barring a major setback. And he's going to. He's he didn't. He didn't get a new elbow to come and hand the ball off. He's still gonNA WANNA flip around. And the more people you have including Eric Hebron along with Vance McDonald. He's going to have people to throw the ball to and that's the best thing that you can have is multiple options game. We had a very similar question because says a whereas Washington that may not think. He's GonNa Find I. I think Washington what you've got to remember. I kind of like there. There might be times where it's Washington and clay on the field together if they're if they're in like if there's only two receivers on the field so it would be either like a twenty one or twelve formation and you went to guys out there I could see both of them because clay was a Guy. That's not afraid to stick his nose in there and block. We'll see we'll see how that translates to the NFL level. But we've already watched James Washington. Make some fantastic blocking plays as a wide receiver. I was I was at the game. One they were going up against Miami on Monday night and they and they hit deontay Johnson where they basically you know. They rushed everybody and dropped. Everyone and Rudolf hit him across the middle and he broke that all the way to the end zone. Steve Washington just put down a couple of and there was other games in there too. Where he just you saw him as a wide receiver. Just come in. And just she eight a defender of the way. He blocked him so trust me. And they're they're gonNA find a way to the ball to. I don't think there's going to be an odd man out. I just think they're gonNA have to figure out how they use them. All came flip brought up something here that I think is interesting because this actually wanted to say says Smith Schuster as big prices himself out of the steelers market if he has a bad year he's gone and looks for new home. Here's the thing that's interesting Smith. Schuster could have a big year but if Johnny Johnson also has a big year the steelers could be faced with the question of. Hey we still got him for two more seasons under his rookie deal but we know that. Eventually we're going to have to pay Dante Johnson so it might be one of those questions as well It Ju just one of those guys. It's going to be tough to figure out his contract and we can all speculate all we want. I'm I'm going to say I'm going to trust the GM to figure out to do what they need to do. A So it's going be interesting. How this all plays out because Juju could have a fantastic year but of jump day. Johnson's they're having a fantastic ear as well. It's GonNa make for some. It might be a tough choice because you can still have someone else for cheaper for a couple more years and then may be able to pay them when when the time comes in came. Donald said I don't agree with either Dave Packer Suck. We don't want we don't Wanna I don't know how the draft wide receivers. I don't really pay attention. I mean I know wouldn't receive receivers. You're good but I never pay attention if they were drafted by them or not. That's just I don't know about you. All when it comes to the draft I focus on. I don't care what people got. You know that's why I do the mock stuff I do everything else but I'm I'm more excited of to to find out the results rather than who's it going to be because like I've said you all before there's nothing worse than fallen in love with a player only to find out that there were purple. It's terrible we don't want to have that happen. So I like to throw my thoughts out there and stuff as as part of being on this format both in the written word and with the podcast but at the same time I'm ultimately waiting to see who is one of them new member of the steelers and then really get excited about them and for as for people to buy the teams. I really think about him as much. I'd I'd I care about him when the steelers are preparing for them but I don't really look back as to where they were drafted everything else. You're talking about you. Know Top five draft pick. That's a little bit different because you know everyone talks about the top. Five draft picks and commentators will constantly remind you about that being at the top the draft. So that's kind of how I feel about that.

"Historically there wide receivers. They really make that jump in to a lot of their players not just wide receivers but a lot of their players. Make that big jump in your to. And with the ought Johnson coming off of injury being able to fill that role having other receivers that will that the defense will have to pay attention to. He's got the chance to just come out and have a monster season there are. There are some people that are going far. I've I've seen it out there to say you know what? Juju doesn't need to be a number one because deontay Johnson's GonNa grab that role led you just keep in the number two? We was what Mr Third and fifth was here and the Johnson can he can step up and take that role and they're just both gonna make them both better. I don't know if that's really how it needs to be. I think Dante Johnson can play in that position and Juju can maybe do more workout slot. They'll both benefit from each other. You've also got James Washington Chase Klay. Pool. I mean there are other options there. The more threat every receiver is the more. It's going to benefit the other ones so I think deontay Johnson has the potential to step up and just have an absolute monster season put himself establish himself as a top receiver in the NFL. Not just with the steelers now when I say. Top Top. Top receiver doesn't necessarily like top five but enough that people really GonNa pay attention to him. If you're one of those fantasy football people out there that really enjoy the year long keeping my team. Same Leagues that I know. Jeff Hartmann despises and that's why you likes daily fantasy or weekly fantasy This is a guy that you could possibly grab it. A good spot. That could really breakout this year. And I think so I think steeler fans that are in league with non steeler fans might have an advantage of being able to grab some like that who could really step up. I see him as as a guy that could explode this year. And I'm I'm going to call it. That's going to be a bold prediction of mine that I think the update Johnson is going to absolutely explore. I don't know if it's going to be that he's gonNA crush it with yards. I don't know if it's going to be that he's GonNa crush with touchdowns it might be both. It might be one or the other but either way he's going to. He's going to do some pretty amazing stuff. And he's going to get some big noted notoriety around the league and he's going to be the guy that's going to be that's going to be stepping up to be the next big thing in years to come. So that's what I had to say about it and I will be honest for those of you joining me in the live chat. I see the people in there and and and giving some comments or whatnot. I have not had a chance to look at it yet so I am going to throw in my word of saying comments and from this point on anything that you all say. I'll try to make sure that I can bring it up. What do some comments will do your thoughts on the subject? And then we'll maybe take a few questions here why we while we do this show here on a on a lovely Friday afternoon. You can possibly see that. The Sun is shining here. When I am in Maryland. Although it was within the last couple of hours we had hail coming down from a nice. Little storm rolled through. But it's it's other than that now. It's a beautiful day and I just looking forward to spend some time here with the with the steelers with the steelers family and just to see what all you all have to say about and I just got a big jump in what. I'm saying so pardon me food as we have here from Z. Smooth he says we're just like the packers we always hit the mark. Drafting receivers always. I don't know that I'm GonNa go with that statement because frankly I don't know that it's the packers. It always hit the mark with drafting receivers. I think it's the steelers I don't think the steelers like the packers. I think the packers might be like the steelers. But I'm not completely in tune with the packers and everything that they do. I The steelers set the standard in the NFL when it comes to drafting wide receivers and getting great talent. I know of course. There's the bus that you get up there. People will instantly want to bring up Lima Suite of course. But you can't hit on every draft pick and even when you're drafting this many wide receivers you're not gonna hit on every single one but the steelers have done a very nice job at that. The faneuil wants to know where where to chase? Klay in Washington fit in? I think they all fit in exactly how we'll find out this fall whenever the steelers hopefully get out on the field. We'll see how they fit in. I I don't know that they're going to ask a lot of clay pool right off the bat. They usually don't outta their rookies. I was surprised they asked. I went on record saying before the season last year. I didn't even know of Johnson would be active at the beginning of the season. Because that's something that's common with steelers wide receivers. Jordy was definitely an exception. He busted onto the scene big time as a rookie. James Washington had some games that he was inactive as a rookie. As we as many of US know Martavis Bryant. He was inactive for his first. I think.

So you've got me and here I am and I'm kind of excited to do a show by myself and it's been a little bit since I've done that and but I'm not by myself because I already have plenty of people in the live chat getting ready to join in. I'm hoping that we can bring up. Bring up the topic here. And then maybe turn it over the live chat for great discussion there so my topic for. Yeah I said it. You know I gotTa try be my best to think all right. Well you know He Lancy. He drives the plot something that you might not expect and this might not be shocking to a lot of people but the way. I said it I I hope everyone knows to take. This is kind of taken to the next level and that is deontay. Johnson is the next steelers superstar. I mean superstardom. I mean full-blown taking taking the League by storm where people were going to notice and know who he is and not. Just be that guy. He's going to be someone who steps it up and teams have the game plan around. There was a report out this week. I mean maybe I don't know that if I don't say a new report I would say the best way to say. It is confirmation of some of some various details. I know that there was a picture of deontay Johnson getting surgery not long. After the two thousand eighteen season ended. We found out for sure. I mean it was speculated that it was a sports hernia injury but we you know whether or not that was fully confirmed or not. You know there's a lot of different things but that's what it was. He had a sports hernia surgery. Which is one of those that doesn't take an mench recovery time not as not as much as like when the guys have been getting. Their niece coped in season and missing only two or three weeks. You know a little bit more than that but not something. That's going to affect him into scheduled training camp and things of that sort but not only that. Come to find out that in week two Johnson suffered a groin injury. That wasn't enough to hold them out of practice holding a games just enough to be a nuisance just enough to not even wind up on the injury report there was a it wasn't something that was going to to threaten his status for the week and and now someone would say well. What if he? What if he reinjured it and therefore had leave the game? Well that would that would be a substantial injury. That injury will really what be would cause Qasim to leave a game. He might be more susceptible to that because of what he was dealing with. But it's not one of those things that the steelers are. GonNa get in trouble for not reporting this on the injury report or anything of that nature because it did not affect his play it did not affect US status but he was dealing with it all season which met. Maybe you know probably wasn't ask one hundred percent when it comes to speed. I know I saw some comments by the so curtain where people said you know that makes sense. Because I always felt like he still had a little bit more left in the tank to to look like he wasn't going quite full speed from what I was kind of anticipating and that might have been part of the problem that he has really inhibited by by this injury since week. Two and now he's hoping to to might even be today that he to be cleared for all activities. He Stole Training and working out. You know go in contact with Ben Rothlisberger and building that relationship and hoping to work out and you know. Take take some throats from him. Even more is what it is but look at what he did last year when he was injured his stats for for his rookie year. In two thousand. Nineteen was fifty nine receptions. Six hundred eighty yards and five touchdowns receiving touchdowns not counting his his punt. Return touchdown against the cardinals. So that's six total touchdowns as a rookie. Every one of those touchdowns came after he was injured so we saw glimpses of some of some really great potential stuff last year. I mean even even what the steelers got out of the day Johnson last year. You know you'd want to approve a little bit. But if he didn't even make a massive jump he still performed so well was a rookie but that would still be acceptable. But if you look at it.
