They're also saying that offense is more important to the pittsburgh steelers in the defense. 'cause you have different rules for the often thing is one of the deals. One super bowls. We've had a great defense even when the nineties where we lost superbowls brought we had guys like can kevin graham again. What what are we doing here. And when you think we need to think about this. What is from sandy. It's pure supplying the mon- you look at the top edge russia's in the nfl get paid top dollar. They got taught money. They get top. Defensive top defensive money. They're the they're the best play defensive plays. Tj what is chew easy worry defensive player of the year where cornerback in the defensive. Tackle one. second let this money right.

Brady millions an rojas russell wilson. Now i just you sit there and you gotta think tease asking for is not unreasonable. It just really isn't and the steelers gotta think about.

Thank they let tj to abandon darn brank policy. But if you don't think tj are what is worth plus twenty eight million. You'd think he's worth the guaranteed money. Every other one of those plays are getting paid will. Then i mean i should to decide is gonna be the quarterback in the next couple of years. I mean should decide what you think because we needed someone. That's going to be able to get the ball back quickly for rookie quarterback very say interview not paying. Tj team is going to win four games because he is an absolute centerpiece particularly particularly Rookie contracts on the defense. So i don't think it's still lost their identity. I don't but they all depending on what happens out of this particular not signed. I think begs the question.

I casually listened to but really united from around the nfl. But this is the main ones those catching up on Dubbing listen to lots debate essay and donna jeremiah was out of out of the pad brought up super seen sue. Some of you may know this but of might not even if you do know about concept the detainees. You're gonna learn something anyway. What shit so essentially assume saying you know usually would have six years to play it for years in college. Obviously read shed some rising for five years. I labor twenty three times and they could still play a portion of the twenty to twenty twenty twenty two twenty twenty one season that would actually counts depending on the division level. Ns specific eligibility rules so basically what these comb certian there were one hundred one thousand and forty seniors. The returned across one hundred twenty nine schools At schools the other thing that was really interesting pretending pretending production site is. Actually i think a bulls together that nicole. Dsp plus but basically they can they measure a metric of how much production is returning to any given tame and that might be Defense role and what they worked out with this. She was in crazy intern in terms of retaining production. In fact it was eight to ten ten percent mall the normal. I normally at sixty percents. So that means. Obviously if you've got five wide receivers you know in only to going to to the draft Trae todd ends on stage four running back since race day. That helps you. Sort of a quite disfigurements across the league Stupid san andy shaded production saini's producing offense defense sort of state. Louisiana was actually the highest Is is the high school The time that i was able to pull the stocks. Marie really interesting article on twenty four seven sports with ninety six percent of their production retaining and in fact non Percent of the offense product offensive production is back in every single wide receiver up. You know even to date that they have to date Ended up being at eleven water sentence for them actually. He's he's returning and they had nine returning seems really really interested in that respect illinois. So that's the college that brought us kindergarten they have seventeen supersedes the she And they went through and seeks lost. So how much that means to them but we do know that injuries which is why kindred green goats do what he did and he was overseeing the starting anyway but guts playing central role and then they actually have seventy percent of their retained production. So should sail. Go you know given that sakes but if this of the nine schools it's kingpins. Documentation of really hyped production or a higher number of sippy seniors. There's nine schools that sort of workout in these tastes. And so one of them's arizona. State and with fourteen seniors an eighty four percent production utah state has nine teen seniors. Ucla has six detainees. And i mean at the same time. All that looks lawyer They've got lake guys links. Zach shaw than a us absolutely going off at the moment. They've gotta tae it's gone off as well Pretty well even within a six seniors. Miami had ninety one percent of their production return. Nolde niece has Seniors return and they lead the sanctions that production percentage are returning louisiana They have that seventy percent production reten return number Their offense and then you've got. I was statement. Eighty eight cent production return on offense. Sorry just return. Full stop. coastal carolina a twenty nationally for their returning production with twelve seniors.
Steelers LB T.J. Watt Still Not Practicing With Team as Week 1 Approaches
"Have sneaky big news coming out of pittsburgh. This is bad and it. Serious steelers superstar linebacker. Tj what is declining to practice. This has been getting very little attention. He's been sitting out since the start of camp wants to contract the steelers having given him one and it's almost impossible to quantify just how good this guy is. He comes off a season in which he led the league with fifteen sacks he had the best pass rush win rate sport meaning. He beat his blocker within two and a half seconds. So he's a superstar. This is a guy. many people are being. It'd be the defensive. Mvp and jeff. Can you explain because again. This is not getting as much attention as i think it should be. Exactly what it is going on there will let me explain why to you just mentioned. Tj watt has been sitting out. he actually hasn't and that's what makes this. Such a weird scenario. Is that because of the fines that players face for a holdout now mandated by the players or not sitting in essentially so he's been going through practices in individual drills but then sitting out team drills and there was sort of. I think there's lingering expectation that that would change once the regular season arrived. It hasn't now mike. Tomlin is scheduled to address the media today. Maybe we'll get some more clarity on what it would take if the team perhaps plans to suit them up anyway on sunday even though he's in team but no doubt a fascinating situation with this added layer the steelers on the fact. They do new deals with players during the regular season. So this doesn't get done before sunday. We're in new territory when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers and negotiations with players.
Steelers Acquiring CB Ahkello Witherspoon From Seahawks
"The pittsburgh. Steelers acquired a cello witherspoon who was drafted by the san francisco. Forty niners spent four years with san francisco. The seattle seahawks obtained in prior to the twenty twenty one season in the steelers sent a fifth round draft. Pick to seattle for witherspoon. Okay this is another one of those moments where the steelers fan base is already reeling a little bit. they're frustrated. There's not j. watt contract. All of a sudden steph onto it zach banner anthony macfarlane gone injured reserve which means they are missing games one two and three no matter what then the steelers pull off a trade in. You probably saw breaking news trade alert the steelers make a trade for cornerback in. You're thinking okay here we go. Let's do this. And it's a keller witherspoon if you're like me and i'm being honest i'm always honest with you. That's why. I hope that. I can connect with you as my listeners. My reaction was who the heck is this guy. I never heard of this guy now. Granted i'm not a draft. Nick i did get into this draft in the twenty twenty one draft i was i studied. More prospects did more breakdowns. And i've ever had in my entire life. Mope witherspoon was drafted back in two thousand seventeen. So i definitely was not doing all that digging back then nonetheless you learn a little bit about the player after you get to know him in after the trade was announced as official by the steelers. Now you're looking at okay. What is this guy brain to the team. Well when we find out. And this is from people like jeffrey benedict. When people like kevin smith who find out that he's a an typically an outside cornerback. He's not a physical has good ball skills. Good size six to everyone always talks about. Oh you can't have a cornerback. That's under six foot. He sticks to ran a four five forty. I believe four or five. Maybe it was right around there.
Pittsburgh Steelers Acquire CB Ahkello Witherspoon From Seattle Seahawks
"The pittsburgh steelers have made a trade going into the twenty twenty one regular season. It is friday. September third when this trade is being reported. It was first reported by. Nfl networks in rappaport. the steelers are acquiring cornerback. A kello witherspoon. If i said his first name correct from the seattle seahawks now witherspoon has not played in the regular season with the seahawks. All he did was was signed with them in the off season and he played in a couple of preseason games this year for them and this is an before being traded to the steelers. We do not know exactly what the trade entails. We don't know what the steelers have given up. There is one thing that we actually do know that the steelers are given up their likely. Losing what would be projected fifth round compensatory draft pick from from this year because when you trade for a player that is that is a compensatory free agent that signed with someone else but you you get them via trade than they count into the formula. That's one one factor that that that's coming
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"How you doing tonight sir. Doing great michael doing great love to hear it No special guests night mostly because there's no football this weekend it's the league wide kind of preseason. The bye week before week one. Jeffrey and i are gonna get into a little bit more funds steals show. Of course this has been a very busy week especially for your pittsburgh steelers and of course around the nfl. So if you've been consuming this information like i've been It's it's been one of those insane weeks across the nfl landscape but I guess really kick things off. There's a ton of news today but maybe we should start off the show on a positive note. Pittsburgh steelers signed curl joseph The former first round. Pick of the oakland raiders. Former cleveland brown. Back to the raiders gets cut. He signed to the practice squad but after his sixty corn teen is expected to make the fifty three man roster. Jeffrey what are your initial thoughts on curl. Joseph the new safety slash linebacker slash Swiss army knife is a mike tomlin described. Traynor would well. What are your thoughts on the pittsburgh. Steelers news player. I've liked carl. Carl joseph is coming out of college. He's he's not quite the player he's had some injuries but getting him to the practice squad get him for like you know nothing claiming him claiming off waivers even just signed him like a cheap deal. This is kind of a thing. And i i like the signing. I like the you know giving a guy with that kind of pedigree that kind of experience in the nfl because he was a good player when he was healthy. I like it. I like bringing them on board in this in any way affects the status of terrell edmonds. Could he pushed him for his spot. I don't think so. No if you look up what karl. Joseph is like even last year. He he can't. He's not a coverage guy like he was not a coverage guy when he came into the league his injuries of made him significantly less of coverage guy. So i don't. I don't see him being a threat to really any of the main. Any of the main safeties are defensive backs because he's just not that he's not that guy. It is pretty interesting. How will the steelers use him. Then in your opinion what what can spot should we expect in the lineup at will planning special teams which we expect out of Joseph they call. It was the plate special teams in oakland. I wouldn't doubt that he could is good tackler. I actually think. Karl joseph is a good candidate to get the marcus allen treatment. The like play some linebacker here I think he could get work in dime against certain teams. I don't think he's a deep safety kind of guy. I e you can use them in joan zone but he was always good in more of a linebacker or robber type zones those type zones. He was always better at that. That's where he got his interceptions that's made most of his plays so for me. I think he is a candidate to fill marcus allen death linebacker role And maybe get in on some some interesting some packages now jerry. Dulack was the man who broke the news that curl joseph not only signing the team. But it's expected to come up to that fifty three men roster after quarantine period in that scene tweet. He mentioned the pittsburgh. Steelers are more likely still going to add another defensive back They really haven't addressed that nickel corner spot. Arthur led of course. He signed back to the team today after the steelers play. Some guys i are. We'll get to that but it seems like there's still a a fairly substantial hole on that on that nickel corner spot. Do you expect them to still bring someone in because right now the way. You look at the roster. It doesn't seem like there's that guy and it looks like there's a number of free agent. Second i would. I expect them to pursue somebody one of my favorite mos interesting things about this. Preseason is that aside from cameron sign right. Outside of cameron sudden every single player they have put in the slot in like early in the game is listed as a safety or a linebacker because these are the guys these are the guys that have played in nickel or dime in the slot early on in any of the preseason games should antoine junior. They listed him as a safety. Arthur millette they listen to him. As a safety miles. Killebrew played there. They list him is a linebacker. Marcus allen has played in the slot he's listed as a linebacker and traynor norwood who is listed as a safety so it's three safeties and linebackers Which i find interesting because the steelers are always grabbing these kind of hybrid players and using them. Safeties guys like a make. Patrick where people are like is this guy. Linebacker is he. Is he a cornerback. Like what is like these guys that can play all those positions but don't really fit one perfectly. The steelers love collecting them. We've got a whole slew of them and they're trying them at the nickel spot. So i'm going to be very interesting to see if they do sign someone you know. What type of player they sign. But i'm also interested if they're unable to upgrade the position at all and how they will play the dime role. You know the the nickel slot because it's clear to me for what they were doing. Preseason they are really still looking for that kind of safety who can play in in the nickel or dine. Defenses and inside corner yahoo just the way this roster is being constructed. I would also assume that a body is coming in. I believe Jimmy moreland was one of the names that are floating out there. played for the washington football team last year. I've pretty solved player. He was cut on the injury designation. But it's still expected to play in week. One be healthy enough to play for week one. So if there's a name to watch. I feel like that's the one i throw out there. If the steelers weren't able to swing a trade which at this point seems a little less likely although the steelers still have a ton of cap space that something we have to keep in the back of our minds are kind of stepping away from the more positive news of course but staying in secondary. Joe haden today a little bit of news with him. That's him the steelers will not be working at a contract. This offseason This i guess This training camp. Of course we know. The steelers don't negotiate deals during the regular season slash. Postseason and joe. Hayden is expected to test free agency next summer. I'm curious what were your initial thoughts to that. And do you think this is going to be the end of the joe. Haden era in pittsburgh after the season. I always like the steelers. Don't like to extend guys early unless they're like their top most valuable players like it. Y ben rothlisberger can get a new contract anytime you want it. A but most of the time they go pretty close to their deal ending so wanted to hit me here either. Joe haden wants money that they're not willing to give him or cannot give him looking at what they're trying to do right now and so they're saying hey played out a year or they really are ready to move on from him Maybe they think that. Highly of james pierre and they're basically just grooming james fiero to be joe hayden's replacement next season. That's a possibility i. I'm leaning towards some finding a way to sign. Joe haden cut the salary. Cap will be bigger. There'll be more money. I i don't i think it's smart for him. Money wise to wait till next year and played out and see because there might be some teams with that much cast base saying. Hey we can blow money for two years on joe haden and give us a give us a guy who can come in and fill in here for a bit i. I would prefer that to be the steelers. The steelers will have some space that could use..

You're just as important we love you so thanks for supporting us here in. Let's get into it. It's the preseason. Once again the steelers are getting ready to play the detroit lions in a meaningless preseason game. I don't think it's meaningless at this point because you're gonna see some action from ben rothlisberger. You're going to see some starters that you haven't seen in. You're going to see. Probably the crux of the team for the best opportunity in the entire. Preseason all four games that they're playing this year and remember everybody else's only playing three and you know there's always so much to talk about when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers but of course the inquiry surrounding the black and gold or ever-evolving. Definitely especially this week with the steelers standing stefan to it to free up cap space position battles heating up and like i mentioned starters getting ready to play against the steelers at heinz field. Well actually they're gonna play the lions really not the steelers at heinz field but the steelers do play the steelers because they're competing for spots as well but in preseason week three as far as the steelers are concerned. It's the detroit lions. Who are the opponents now to me. It seems like the musical selection. That best fits. This week's factor fiction could be from very close to detroit across the border the legendary canadian group. Loverboy remember them from the eighties. Y'know red leather pants the get lucky album. The fingers crossed on the album. Yeah it's loverboy. They were big back then. Now here's a sample. Everyone's looking to see if it was you. Everyone wants you to come through. Everyone's hoping it will all work out. Everyone's waiting they're holding out everybody's working for the weekend. Everybody wants a little romance. Everybody's going off the deep end and everybody needs a second chance. Oh you wanna piece of my heart you better start from the start you wanna be in the show. Come on baby. let's go. let's go now. You might ask yourself. What do these lyrics really have to do with the pittsburgh steelers. Well maybe good or bad. Just one of them. Excuse to listen to some cannot rock but anyhow there's always a lot to wonder about bt ese tries to answer some of the poignant wondering ahead of time so take a look at some bold statements on this and more as we label them as factor fiction. Will we be on point. Only time will tell factor fiction number. One dan moore junior is making his case as a future starter on the offensive line fact. I really liked what i've seen and heard about the steelers. Fourth round selection in twenty twenty one out of texas am despite the growing pains that came with lining up against alex smith. You know more is being praised for his nasty streak in his blocking abilities now. I thought he handled himself well. In preseason action as well there were plenty of negative comments surrounding the efforts and abilities of tooks core four but upon further review number seventy six seems to be adapting to the left tackle position. Quite well i think the possession arrow for the position might be leaning towards the veteran especially with more practising law. Now on the right side but whether it's right tackle or left tackle the object in the rear view mirror that is number sixty five. The aggie dan moore junior may be closer than it appears factor fiction number two. Kevin colbert is done making trades for the year. Twenty twenty one fiction now. Don't get me wrong. I really don't expect steelers. Gm kevin colbert to acquire any more talent by the way of the trading post in twenty twenty one. But can't he be giving it away. Well giving it away for value. I could envision a player or two in a deep position such as defensive line wide receiver running back punter or quarterback to be shipped off to replenish maybe somewhat depleted draft board next season although importing talent is not completely out of the realm of possibility. It's never going to be for the likes of stefan gilmore or eighteen aaron rodgers. So get that out of your hands not going to happen. But that's okay. Those aren't the guys live. The pittsburgh steelers would be targeting. They'd be probably targeting. A draft choice factor fiction number. Three fans need to get to know the name kalem balaj. That's a fact. I say this not because this will be ear candy. Hearing yinzer pronounced the fourth year running backs name a guy. See that callum belhadj. He's pretty good in that splaine for the steelers. Check them out. he's not najji harris. But he's got that's why It's my best possible yinzer. I know everybody rips on it. But i really think that balaj could become the angela williams valuable but lost stands at six two ways in hardy two hundred and thirty pounds but he's also been clocked in speedy four point. Four in the forty yard dash in his career. Balaj had touchdown on his pittsburgh debut and check this out. One thousand nine yards on four carries with a nine yard gain negated by penalty market. Remember he was only playing in one. Preseason game now. The head. Scratcher is why the former charger dolphin. New york jet is with his four squad in four years though but balaj his said the pittsburgh is the finest organization that he's worked for an environment goes a long long way at times but the main point to consider is that the students cannot live on najji harris alone so balaj has a backup. Could be very filling as a part of the twenty twenty one roster hopefully beyond factor fiction number.

"Game of week. One like that's completely unreasonable. Given what we know about the jets and like again like bring it up like carolina's got an iffy situation. A left tackle like no loss like this. It's going to hurt them and it'll be more. Ken said not much to do season-long here. But it's something that will impact the game by game handicaps that we have and maybe allow us to make some valuable. That's on the jets as we move towards and through the nfl. all right. let's get to the two days now. We talked about the steelers. Let's get to a team. We've made me the team that we've talked to most about this. Nfl miami miami right right is the is the cincinnati bengals win total six and a half minus one twenty two the under at our show sponsor bed rivers plus one hundred to the over bengals about plus infinity to win the afc north minus three sixty to come in last plus four seventy five to make the playoffs minus six. Seventy two miss. We've got a series of player props as well borough four thousand two hundred fifty passing yards twenty five touchdowns. Joey finish brought up in the last hour. Six to one to become back player of the year week. One the bengals three and a half point home underdogs against the minnesota. Vikings can with a total of forty eight. What about cincinnati and bets. That you might have on them this season. This is i mean people listen to pod slash show all the time know that i have an under win. Total it on them already at six and a half and i'm rooting for it to get better as we go. Let's see what happens. Sure is there a case that they're going to be better. Yeah you can make a lot of excuses for why. Zack taylor is six twenty five and one in his two years as head coach You know the quarterbacks that he's had to work with once bro gets hurt especially like he enters a terrible situation and they were terrible team. So is that a reflection on him or reflection on the franchise and is there room for the team to get better. Sure like you can make that case definitely but one thing that strikes me is not so much okay. Great like the quarterback argument is of course valid and and worthy of consideration They've also the last two years. Exacto has been there been and that same defensive coordinator both years liu and a room. Oh forget i guess last name but sounds like you'll next door to me in staten island. New room oh yes. It's not just baked clams by the way. Oh absolutely loves them. Not just as a quarterback has been hurt but this defense same coordinator all three years and he's the coordinator again this year. Twenty seventh and twenty eighth and takeaways. The last two years like is there a reasonable expectation that that's going to improve. If they're a bottom five sixteen takeaways again like broken even be better and they can go under this number very easily like one of the most important things that defense can do. Obviously just give you a short field force turnovers. There's been no evidence that team has been able to do that and it's not just that it's there's been no evidence and they're keeping everyone in place again so it just like. What is a reasonable expectation for this team. The schedule is very interesting real quick..
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Linebackers aren't put in as much of a tough situation so we can get a better gauge on. How much devin. Bush is ready to go for the season. What the steelers have in their new middle linebacker. Joe schubert would love to see. What would you get there. And is roberts lane much better off in that reserve role that can come in and if that's just better suited for him so those are some numbers and things to look for. So i wanna see the steelers. I want to see them. Get first downs in the first quarter. I wanna see them. Put points of the board in the first quarter. And i would also like to the steelers to get off the field in the first quarter on defense. The the third down conversion third-down rates conversion rate. Sorry be pretty low in the first quarter but even in the first half. I'd like to see the steelers win the first half and not just dominate the second half like they did last week. So that's what the numbers i'm looking for. I'm hopefully that was fun and informative for you. All i'm sorry if i was just regurgitating a lot of stats but my goodness. That's an awful lot to take in from this game this past week. It was absolutely crazy that the you know. The steelers gave up no first downs. In the second half didn't give a third dot conversion the entire game had a crazy time of possession advantage and completely dominated that part of the game. I would just like to see the steelers. Be able to put points on the board this next game before the two minute. Warning of the first half because the steelers they have one score in the first half shofar. Let's let's get that going a little bit better. But i'm excited to see what things can happen. I'm excited to see. I'm not gonna say a full stadium because it's preseason that it just doesn't fill up but i'm excited to see numerous fans throughout the stadium. Saturday night at heinz field. I really am. I'm looking forward to seeing this game. It's nationally televised on. nfl network. And because the steelers are the home team you will get the home team announcers which is very positive. Because it should be charlie batch and bob papillon and you don't have to listen to the other teams announcers never talked about the steelers instead. The lines fans have to listen to the steelers. Announcers never talked about the lines. That's that's a. That's a pretty good off. I'll take that but Thanks for for check us out. Make sure you are. You are checking out behind.

Pittsburgh Steelers' Chase Claypool Suffers 'Minor Ankle Sprain' in Practice
"Lot of steelers. Nation was collectively holding their breath at the end of practice today when one wide receiver chased klay pool went down and did not go off the field under his own power. He had to be helped to the locker room. By ben roethlisberger and eric hebron luckily reports and already out that. It's not a high ankle sprain. She stay low ankle sprain. he's going to be out. I feel we're not gonna see him this this week. I don't even know there. Were gonna play him or not. The next week all depends but bottom line is he should not be missing significant time. That's going to affect the regular season. We might know a little bit more tomorrow from coach tomlin but i doubt he really says anything because that's just what he does but the it. It's not anything that looks like it's going to require extensive time
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"The pittsburgh steelers will not have to run into some things ran into last year like losing players because of kobe scarce. Heck ben rothlisberger missed a week because a because of a close contact with someone despite never getting it. The pittsburgh steelers are in a better situation this year than they were last year. And guess what one of the things that i think has gotten swept under the rug. Steelers never gonna break last year thereby wiki sentenced on. They're not missing any time. Because a covert and a pretty sure. The nfl isn't going to reschedule. Games especially like What we saw a year ago. I i think the punishments might be a little harsher for teams that are able to feel the enough body so the pittsburgh steelers should actually get arrested here and that means something for team that lost their bye week. They lost their thursday night game. They just had to keep practicing all week long. And then the game gets delayed all this year by week now after you practiced all week. Sorry about that fellas Yeah you're playing twenty one straight weeks of football without a break now. That is a lot to put on a human body. The pittsburgh steelers now however once again. They're getting devon bush back from his torn. Acl getting zach. Banner back at the end of the year. The steelers had robert selena limping around on a bum knee. The list goes on and on for the steelers the with their injury problems last year and guys at missed a playoff game because kobe the that was pretty serious and on top of that rosberg who was dealing with some knee problems which borrow means is is not being reported as an issue as it was at the end of last season this team is healthier and if they can stay healthy will be a force and one of the things that people keep pointing words his team that these injured guys almost like they don't exist but guess what they are coming back in the fold and the steelers are going to be a better team because of it. Another thing that i think should be exciting steeler fans after the release david castro and signing of trae turner and melvin ingram. The steelers have still have significant chunk of cap space. The steelers probably make another move before week. One improve this roster which honesty on paper is a pretty damn nice looking roster. They add a solid drafty. Fill the lot of gaps in this team. If someone finds himself as a street free agent who the pittsburgh steelers might be able to pick someone up and be even better. Come week one. Yes i know that is far less likely than the other things that we talked about today but for a team that is competitive year out they should be players to land another player to before we get to week one. Which is huge. For the pittsburgh steelers so to recap today show. The steelers had been overheated. All off season long. And really if you're steeler fan it's probably driving you nuts right now but thankfully. Football is on the horizon and the steelers can shut the haters up which i cannot wait for. Especially 'cause week one is against the buffalo bills if the steelers can come out and punch the bills in the face and leave orchard park with the win. Yeah that might silence. Some of the haters really really really quick. So i really all of us should not be Should not discredit how exciting it is to be a steelers fan right now and and to get ready to hear some apologies which i think are on the pretty close horizon. I if i do say so myself. Outside of that Ben roethlisberger in the offensive line can prove a lot of their haters wrong. And so can mike tomlin. If he can rack up another winning season he has yet to have a losing season. The nfl and of course with the auto amount of games. It's harder than ever to have a winning season. Got to win nine games. Instead of eight to have a winning percentage in the positive so that will be one of the tasks for mike tomlin and company this year past that. I want to thank you for tuning into today's edition of the live. Mike and i want to remind you behind. The steel curtain dot com is releasing a heck of a lot. More audio podcast. Then then really we have in the past. Of course you have your evening. Podcasts and the stream. Monday all everyday the week on youtube and facebook. And then you have your am shows like the live. Mike what you're listening to right now. Jeff hartman's Three let's rides. Dave scofield stocky. But we're we're having afternoon shows added to the fold as well which is really exciting.
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Already pittsburgh steelers fans. It is time for the second. Half of the live mike podcasts. And why the pittsburgh steelers are such an over hated team in the nfl. It it's like clockwork If the steelers make a move all the gotta find the negatives in this one of the things with the melvin ingram signings people trying to say all the steelers defense is old because they have cam hayward joe haden tyson allows old vince. Williams's old melvin. Ingram sold well. Guess what the the only guys that are over thirty. That are fulltime. Starters of those names are listed. Joe haden cam hayward cam hayward is arguably the second best defensive lineman in the nfl. Joe haden has not lost a step. The other guys are either primary backups. Or i guess in vince williams case a fringe starter. So the some of these. These people are just trying to get some sort of a rise. I think steelers nation tour trying to make people believe that. This team isn't good when in reality they are. It's one of those kind of things. You gotta just shake your head. 'cause the pittsburgh steelers by all means if everything clicks. There's no reason why they can't be competing for championship this year. And there's people that will laugh at that statement but then come january. There's a pretty good shot. They'll be one of the teams. That are will a playoff team. By far which. I think are will surprise a lot of people but it shouldn't and have a very good chance winning this division. I think they have the best chance right now off winning the division over the browns the ravens which people will laugh you out of a room right now but honest to go. i think that's the right mindset right now for this team unless they run into some serious injury problems and matt canada's system just doesn't work which by all means it. It's the opposite of that. I do not think you can fairly say his pittsburgh. Steelers team isn't good. I think the steelers floor is a seven one team. I think at worst. They're nine and eight team. I think that's their floor. There ceilings probably like tw- Man like 'cause they messed up the schedule. It's just hard to come up with the the the week by week predictions anymore. But i don't know twelve and five thirteen and four. Yeah they have a hard schedule but the steelers team is pretty loaded. They still have a top three defense in the nfl. And this offense is pretty underrated. Especially ben roethlisberger is as healthy and as competitive as these reports are saying they're going to be pretty darn good too and they have a good special teams unit so this hey is just one of the things that make your eyes roll and one of the places that people want to point the finger at is mike tomlin and this is a direction that many steeler fans like to point the finger in as well which is kind of one of those things that always makes me roll my eyes. 'cause my thomann is still generally one of the best coaches in the nfl players. Absolutely love him. Melvin ingram chose to play for the steelers over the chiefs or the chiefs the team. That has backed back. Represented the scene the super bowl and as a starting position on the edge. Open some more playing time probably comparable money and if people in the national media are to be believed a significantly better shot at lombardi this year. Melvin ingram choose the steelers over that. And why is that. Because mike tomlin is beloved and furthermore to that point andy. Reid is beloved. He's one of the favorite player coaches. There are in football and melvin. Ingram chose mike tomlin over that because how much players respect him. That means something. I mean something to mean. It shouldn't be something you especially. If you are a pittsburgh steelers fan mike. Tomlin has gone. The finger pointed his way a few times in the last What six calendar months has it been fair. I think in some senses. It is like the whole not living in our fierce thing back in the playoffs then punting on what fourth in one when the steelers were storming back in that game against the cleveland browns and a of halton momentum on what could have been monumental comeback. Yeah that sucked. But mike tomlin is still put this team in position to win year in and year out there a competitive mindset. The pittsburgh steelers are never in window now mode because they're only mode is win now. That is the pittsburgh steelers mo but yet they get pointed out until they're do To to flop each and every year mason rudolph could be the quarterback. It doesn't matter mike. Tomlin can get the most out of his team and get them passed a winning record. Sure a winning record isn't the ultimate goal in the nfl. Lombardi is but the pittsburgh steelers on a team. That's just going to roll over and loose. That's not them this. This unit. This team under mike tomlin is going to win and push for championship. Each and every single year does that. Mean they don't get a top ten freaking nature pick. Yeah guess what. They haven't done that in a very long time. They had a trade up for devon bush at number ten and he wasn't healthy last year. He tours. acl so they're freaking nature pick. They're finally getting back this year. So that's another reason to be high on this team past the coaching staff. The injured guys coming back or substantial. Remember joe haden play the playoff game because a cova and speaking of covert regardless think of the vaccine the teams that have more fully vaccinated. Players will be at a significant advantages here. Because they don't have to test they don't have to miss time without having it and the pittsburgh steelers by all means by what the reports are coming out right now have the highest rate in the nfl. Pittsburgh steelers are at a significant advantage compared to a lot of teams and they're still a handful that don't have half the roster fully vaccinated regardless if that happens or not as steeler fans. You can expect your players your favorite players to be on the field each and every week because they bought into what the coaching staff is telling them..
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Pittsburgh steelers. Yes the steeler season it tailed off and cooled off bay area very very quickly but that I would not put that solely on the shoulders of ben roethlisberger and more specifically the surgically repaired elbow of benner burger. People that want to say ben is cooked. I don't know how many cooked quarterbacks five hundred yards and four touchdowns in the playoffs suri through four picks in that game And like there's no excuse for that but that's just a ben rothlisberger football game. He he makes plays sometimes. That are just the wrong play but has so much arm talent that more often than not he pulls it off but when he's not on the interception numbers go up and that's why you see about once a year. A game were ben roethlisberger. Iraq's a ton of picks he's just not dialed up. But in the meantime that same game he went over five hundred yards in four touchdown passes. That is not so when you can just say. Oh yeah he's done. Yeah no there's nothing there. Because ben roth for prove he can do it and he did in the playoffs and as well as during that steelers slump. Were they lost. What four their last five games. Ben still made a couple of pretty nice throws all over the field. I would not be writing this guy off right now especially with all these reports that he is more motivated than ever. He's reading these reports. And apparently his diet is stricter than that. Tom brady the guy whose idea of having a cheat. Cheat meal is avocado ice cream. Apparently that's what bends pushing right now. So if that's all seems to be true. It seems like The national media. And i guess football players alike have poked. The bear and i wouldn't be surprised to see better off. Berger put up some really really good numbers this year. It wouldn't surprise me. The least the offense of weapons of gotten a little bit more experience with ben dolphins of lineup. I think at least is going to be better than it was last year. The running backs are better more depth tight end and a brand new scheme matt. Canada i think is going to do wonders for ben rothlisberger. 'cause randy fee khnr. When he was in charge you knew the steelers. Were passing the ball. When they're in shotgun and there are running it when they're under center and play action was non existent. That ain't gonna fly anymore at the new guy. I don't care if benza the guy that kind of has the final say on the place mat canada's not going to let that fly. This is going to be an efficient offensive scheme that by all means all reports. Everyone including ben rothlisberger is buying into. This scheme is going to transform this offense. It's going to make Ben have to rely a little bit less than just making all the throws perfect all the time. They're going to run the ball better. Play action will open up. The deep ball should open up really. There's no excuse for this offense not to be better than it was last year because last year there was a homeless. No scheme is street ball that had so many tells. The defense is barely had a scheme for the steelers last year. And that's just not the way you do it. Lazio missed the halfway point in the show..
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"We were kinda worried at caches. Marsh and quincy rochet as the primary backups at outside linebacker. But now melvin ingram. Is there in full with alex. Alex smith and t. j. watt. So really it is a beautiful day. The steelers defense got better and this team took a step in the right direction. I am thrilled. I am happy and who knows. Maybe there's some more moves to be made before we get to week one but anyway getting to the real topic of today's show the pittsburgh steelers being the most over hated team in the nfl. It's it's one of those things that have been recurring all off season long Just just the voices from the national media even the local media you you hear this day in day out. The pittsburgh steelers our team that sh- supposedly is one. That's about to fall off a cliff but some who covers this team on a pretty regular basis. Daily articles Couple podcasts a week. Someone who's reading all the rumors learning about these players seeing how everyone's health is doing. It doesn't really seem like this is a team that is about to fall off a cliff. This is a team. That's built to win here now and trying to take home a championship in the twilight of the ben rothlisberger era but still it is this constant bashing from the pf fs of the world or really you just name it any sports talk show. The last couple months is basically just been writing off the pittsburgh steelers some non factor and that just is not fair. This is a team that looks to be in great shape heading into the twenty twenty one season the fact that all these outlets are trying to put a pin on pin in. The steelers is pretty interesting to me. Because i think it goes beyond just a that kind of content. Kind of getting getting your cliques. Getting those numbers up. Of course you put the steelers anything especially negative and it's like throwing gasoline on a fire. Those numbers are going to take off. But i genuinely think a lot of these. A lot of these national media types want to just say the pittsburgh steelers are bad team. And i am not seeing it i am truthfully someone who can look at a picture without any rose colored all in this case black and gold tinted glasses on. If i look at as just a by standard looking at this team i still think there are really solid football team especially if they stay healthy but for whatever reason people want to say. This is a bad football team and i really just just makes me laugh in all honesty because it just does not stop at all. It's just been the constant bashing this entire offseason and most of it has been directed towards ben rothlisberger and the offensive line starting with the offensive line though for as much criticism as that unit gets the steelers completely revamped that unit gone or marquees penalty dave decastro and alejandro villanueva. The old guard is no longer there. The steelers completely retooled the unit yet. People want to bash this team saying that. It's gone worse. how can you say that one. This is a brand new squad rolling out on the field. Left tackles a brand new guy in two weeks before he was a right tackle before left. Guard is kevin dotson who steals viewed as a backup all of last season despite being the best guy in the field when he was in the line of due to injury issues. It's matt filer and others at center kindergarten green. I guess is probably the biggest question mark but he is an athletic stuff and someone that you take over the job probably in training camp then it right guard trae turner who i if he's healthy like he's claiming he is will be a significant upgrade on injured david castro who all likelihood probably doesn't even play in twenty twenty one at all and it's probably mulling retirement for my if we can take all reports at face value and then at right tackle zach banner who looked pretty good in a half of football last year before he tours. Acl this is a brand new offensive. Line trash it as much as you want but saying it's gotten worse or whatever from last year that simply isn't fair because they've completely retooled his group are. They're these big time flashing names. Not yet i think kevin dotson could kind of develop into that if trae turner is as good as he was before a in. La yeah he could be an absolute stud to and again. We don't know what kendrick green is. The tackles are all right. I'm not saying they're the worst tackle tandem in the nfl. Though that's that's the last thing i'm gonna do but yet again the over hated pittsburgh steelers offensive line is getting buried and we haven't seen them play. It is not a fair thing for so many of these outlets to continuously be doing is just tearing them down saying how bad it's going to be. Yeah there's a ton of question marks. I agree with you. There's a ton of question marks. But right now i think it's fairly simple to look that unit be like well on paper with a new scheme new offense aggressive mindset and aggressive blockers at the very least they should be a good team running the football because those guys get after it in the run game. They're downhill guys that you're gonna push around. Perhaps ben might have to take a couple more hits this year but even in that case. We do not know how they're going to work. As a cohesive passing unit yet and to say this is the worst offense align and football which in some rankings that have been coming out the last couple of weeks is exactly where the steelers relying ranks really is not fair. I think this unit has a very very good chance of being improved from what it was last year but continuously the steelers are being slagged. I think that unit will definitely prove people. Wrong and they'll be something exciting to watch especially. Rg harris who i guess would be the The flagbearer when it comes to success of the offensive line if he goes off and hasn't outstanding rookie season as a running back. I think that's a huge testament to the offensive line as well as the talent of najji harris but so many people want to say. Oh he's just going to struggle. 'cause the offense line socks if he doesn't and there you go you can just point to those numbers and and it's one of those things you can kind of look out for to kind of gauge some of the success success of the offensive line as well as the sack numbers have been rothlisberger and how long he's able to hang out in the pocket which could be better brand new scheme brand new coach brand new guys on the offense line. Slagging them really. I think we're getting a little too carried away with that And it could bite some people in the rear end and get them featured on old takes exposed for having a prematurely bad football takes all sports takes in general but That's something i think. People are playing with a little bit of fire on another guy. Of course that is being overheated. Is benjamin todd rothlisburger. The senior pivot for the pittsburgh steelers. Yes the steeler season it tailed off and cooled off bay area very.
Pittsburgh Steelers Release Six-Time Pro Bowl Offensive Guard David DeCastro
"The Steelers released six time Pro Bowl guard David DeCastro, according to ESPN. Steelers reporter Brooke Pryor. This is somewhat surprising. This was always going to be a rebuilding year, but it kind of felt like De Castro was anchoring this line at right guard with him gone, there's one returning starter and that's in troops of work for who is likely going to be moving from the right tackle to the left tackle spot. The Steelers are gonna have to figure out something there, whether it's signing Veteran right guard like a guy in trade Turner because, yes, they drafted a first round running back and now you hear us, He can create a lot. He cannot create all of his own holes.
How Eminem Helped Save Detroit
"The year is two thousand eleven. The event super bowl forty-five the pittsburgh steelers versus the green bay packers. Aaron rodgers was mvp. Christina aguilera sang the national anthem.

Dwayne haskins talent with the questions on dwayne haskins. Aren't does he have talent questions are you know. Where's his head in the game. What's his Level what's he like in the locker room. You know you're talking leadership and you're talking. You know the love of the game sitting in the film room watching the film breaking stuff down understanding the offense all these things. Those are josh dobbs strengths. Just odd isn't the greatest passer but he does that to the point that he's you know a guy. Ben rothlisberger likes because he can rely on him so to me. He's an insurance policy. Should dwayne haskins causing any problems and they have to get rid of. It has to cut ties with him. And he's also the kind of guy to plush dwayne haskins in the in the film room kind of be that guy who's like you know try and keep up your kid like let's go. It's it's time for you to learn this.

Mahomes to have surgery to fix turf toe
"Were talking about Patrick Mahomes undergoing surgery turf toe. And we started talking about this about three hours ago, and we were just going around the room going. Do we know exactly what a turf toe is? Because it gets it gets thrown around a lot and remember when dealing Sanders was with us at the Super Bowl when he took off his sock, and he showed us that toe That was turf toe that never healed whether he had surgery on it or nod Jack Lambert, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, I think had turf toe and it stayed with him the rest of his career, so we thought You know what? Let's bring in somebody who knows what they're talking about. A former NFL offensive lineman won a Super Bowl with Washington a Harvard trained orthopedic doctor, mark addicts and good to have you back on here, Doc. So Do you want us to tell you what we think Turf toe is and then you could probably correct us on this. That'd be great. Let's see what you guys got. Let's see how good you are. All right. I'll start with you, Paulie. What do you think your toe is like a ligament sprain in the toe that hampers an athlete from pushing off like sprinting like running for two. You got a definition for church to one's toe was so severely sprained from the pounding on the torture that it does something. What kind of disconnects Tito from the other toes and needs to be surgically fix a snap back into place. All right, Seaton It is an injury that when, uh, say like wide receivers are going to get their second foot in and they drag it along the left their toes on the turf, and then it gets hurt like that. No, I did not. I did not even look at it that way. Yes, my club, So I thought it was a rug burn style injury from any time she goes on the worse when you're playing with your kids of rug burn, but I do believe it's out. Now ligament underneath your toe that connects to the foot. Okay, let's let's bring in. Doc and Doc. What exactly is Turf toe. Well, I think I think example one wins the ligament injury so it could be a ligament injury. Or it could be an injury to the planter plate, which is almost like a Cartlidge thing That's on the bottom of it, So it is the big toe joint. And it rarely. Is it an injury? There were quite a surgery. The bass majority of players don't require surgery in the NFL there have been about there was a study that was done that had about 30 guys with serfdom. Injuries that were pretty severe, and only about 10% ended up requiring some surgery. Deon Sanders did require surgery. Deon Sanders Strip toe injury did end his career. Essentially, he stuck around for a couple more years, but never really was the same. Antonio Gates had it had a pretty bad turf toe had surgery in 2000 and eight and played Many years was very productive after that injury in surgery, So generally speaking guys, too, Okay. I think John was as his foot with a test was an extreme case. Didn't Mahomes play the Super Bowl with a Tauron ligament? Certainly did. I mean, I In other words, when you have a tip toe injury there, three grades break one. Great, too Great three. It's the same for almost anything. Great one, just a few of the fibers or tourney. Great to a bunch more. Tauron. Great three. It's completely disrupted. So for someone to need surgery generally, there's got to be a little bone chip. It's in the joint or the toe has to be somewhat unstable, which would tell you that that ligament tear had to be pretty significant.
Watson Wants Houston Texans Trade - No Matter The New Coach
"Be enemy. Who watson apparently liked and wanted at the beginning the talk. Now there's nothing better talk narrows it. The shaun watson is doesn't care who the head coaches that he's going to ask out and he wants to be traded now. This is the fact that i've tried to say speculation until he says something. But there's enough insight from these people who do their job morton schefter and and rappaport and all the people that it's this is not fake. It's obviously real people. Think laking this to these. I don't have any idea. But all of them have their sources. It's definitely there's there's no way it's anybody. But sean somebody connected to sean agent. A a buddy whatever it is we everybody has somebody that go to for this. And this is obviously real. The question is how real is the trade. How real would it be. And sean again. The texans on a on a give him all that money which he deserved. But putting a no trade clause in for twenty five year old and an and now if he decides to drop the no-trade clause he can decide where he goes. So let's say it was the pittsburgh steelers who wanted offer but it was less offer than the. Let's say the chicago bears and he says i'm not going to either one and i'm not going to be here so now you've been he'd that the only thing he does control about this he can hold out but he can also pigeonhole you into who you're going to trade with which may cost you less. Because they know the sean while you may get less for him because shawn watson can lead you down all six different teams and lead you down to. Here's the to. it's either here. i'm not going. And i'm not showing up now. You can call the bluff and say we're not trading you there for that and cause they're not we're not we're going to get somewhat close to equal value which is going to be impossible. But then you're going to have to hold out if you wanna play that kind of hard ball or less. Just gonna go in and say you know what we'll give you away for a cheaper price. Let the fact that he's unhappy as obviously real so. It's something that has to be discussed now. I'm not going to sit here and speculate will go into the jetsons you i don't know and none of us do and i don't know i still think it'd be stupid to trade him. But if you play hardball you and you're playing that okay. Are you going to hold out. You're not call the bluff.

"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games <hes>. It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good <hes>. I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee. Titans having to get a drive late in the game even though been was a reception late like they were able to the ball greg band. There's gonna prevail on the road. The pittsburgh steelers had the hold on dearly man. Hold on they do for the baltimore. Ravens they score in the second half and they were able to do that then back pop. For the end zone touchdown pittsburgh and all the out cut to the chase. Claypool man play. It just seems that all the critical point of the season it's offense has been able to produce down to like. I said the dallas cowboy game last week obviously exploiting a very bad bengals defense and well in a team like the cat city chiefs right and i say okay. One had the baby stopped him have to limit big play. The pittsburgh steelers can do that with rush. Plays on the back end right. Play play man when they need to stop the big click now. Let's go offensively the only time we've ever seen patrick mahomes lose. He was in the playoffs. He was standing across from another super bowl. Winning quarterback that was tom brady and rothlisburger. Isn't tom brady but he can do. Some of those things in important moments. And we've seen of do those. And so i think this team can most certainly went into as you mentioned chase claypool his nickname if catching on with you but maple tron. He comes from canada. He's this guy. I didn't know anything about. I wonder if you did because he has seven touchdowns in his first nine games as a pro. What has he brought to this offense. I mean you look at what this league is turning into. Because of the lack of physicality it's a it's a size speed league right like it's starting to they used to be. It didn't matter what happened in the shorts olympics at the combine like if a fast it didn't necessarily mean it was going to translate do can do certain things there did me but it's starting to mean that at the wide receiver position because of the rules. Like if you could flat out run you're gonna probably get open because they can't hold you. You pass five yards. They can't hit you across the middle play putin critic who has great hands he tracks the ball. Well he has a big body and so when you have all those things just translate we've seen chase claypool. You know kind of come out of nowhere. They just kinda have a knack for finding people that sit what they want to do and utilizing them in a way. That truly helps the team chase. Claypool is just another example of that

"The Pittsburgh Steelers he is the toast of every locker room in this league for his he went in there and he laid it on miles Garrett he has been suspended three games himself for his actions in coming to the aid and defense of his quarterback folks this was so bad if this had happened on the street if somebody had been beaten with a weapon of the size and weight of an NFL helmet that person would be in jail there are others who are urging the Steelers to file criminal charges against the Browns it is said that Mason Rudolph's agent is considering criminal charges against miles Garrett number ninety five of the Cleveland Browns it was so bad I was fully expecting when I watch the video does full expecting to see police officers on that field to break this up yeah every NFL team has security if you've paid any attention and they they wear either yellow wind breakers are usually yellow and they surround the field and they are there they never watch the game their eyes are constantly on the crowd they are there to make sure that the crowd doesn't storm the field or the crowd doesn't throwing start throwing things weapons or whatever they might have I fully expect the security staff at that end zone to come out and get in the melee but but they didn't I am the referee is lost control of the game because it was filled with questionable here that were unnecessary throughout the game and as I say yet rivalry Steelers rounds with these players there but nothing was on the line in this game neither of these teams is going anywhere in this season so it's inexplicable and I would love to know what's up miles going off this is not common I would love to know what happened Garrett has not set and what it was all he said is the usual that's not who I don't know it's not who are was will never happen again blah blah blah something set him off something had to happen I don't know if Rudolph sends something I don't know if the scrum that happen before this that Rudolph and tried to get Garrett's helmet in his hand something happened and I would really love to know what it is because I think knowing that will explain what had because it's not rivalry isn't the game was over and the Browns had no there was no chance of going to lose the game there was no way that was given was literally no reason for this there had not been any action by the Steelers during the game the cause pent up frustration and reciprocity if anything it had been the Browns who had been behaving during the game that would warrant the Steelers doing something in retaliatory mission like this so it's really curious to me what happened and something happens something set Garrett off something I'm I have to Janice Steelers fan but ever since I saw the Browns run hard knocks on HBO I think was last season and I have the Browns have become my second favorite team I have really been hoping that they would do well and I have the guy really did fox I have the highest hopes are for any kitchen I hope the guy who had never done it before could come in and do the job I really hope that a guy who had never been a head coach before could come in and build on the successes of last year but it hasn't happened the Browns of underperform they've come no where near meeting expectations I'm not even talking about the pre season the preseason hype was when they traded for Odell Beckham I mean that's when everybody lost all my god this team center for the Superbowl and they haven't performed anywhere near a super plant from anywhere near their potential this year yeah I read some of the craziest stupidest play calling on the ends on thank handle a Reds on a federal lousy red zone performance they've got the potential for an unstoppable offense and it never has materialized and maybe that some of the frustration but they were winning this game was never played the game was in the band it was over so the NFL suspended miles Garrett minimum the rest of the sea I think the Browns need to cut it they cut a player yesterday Antonio Callaway who was a rookie last year he was arrested for marijuana possession last year during the preseason they stuck with him they gave him a chance Sir a little bit of suspension came back had a halfway decent year last year then he started showing up late for games this year and missing meetings they sing them that he's got a ten game suspension the league announced a ten game suspension for substance abuse or obviously found his way back to the weed and the Browns cutting before the game yesterday they've got a lot of wide receivers they can cut and tell me Callaway if they're gonna cut Callaway for being late and for having problems substance abuse them I don't know how they don't cut miles Garrett something's gonna happen here because you should have seen the tweet of NFL players watching the game to a man not of a move ever seen anything like it and so I yeah it does it is it is it a trend is it an indication of where the leak is going it's I don't know that's why I would really like to know what sparked this I'll rise it was a series of things that happened during the course of the game and it all just kind of blew up with one's final stroke of a pen or non on now there's got to be something more than just a simple progression of perceived injustices during the game there's much more to this than that you go back to this old adage of coaching you either culture or yell let it happen and the brown is one of their big problems has been a total lack of discipline on the field and they've been allowed to get away with it so there has to be something here that because this and they'd better find if the if we never told what it is they better find out what it was because I don't think it's about my my guess is it's not something just specific to this game I hope that's all I hope I'm wrong about that but I you know I I I wouldn't I wouldn't have a problem with a lifetime ban they have got to make sure this is not the big getting of any kind of trend this has to be shut down and there can be no doubt about the intolerance they've already got a problem in this game with perceptions on the part of fans about what's going on out there in the field so they've they've got a they've got to get a handle on this and quickly quick time out will continue with much more right after the.

"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"The Pittsburgh Steelers. They are such a mess, and it's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts. It's interesting that the Steelers have become such a mess to me because for so long. They've been propped up as what an NFL franchise should look at. They have been just this shining beacon of an example for the rest of the NFL stable franchise and not to mention a very successful franchise with all the different Super Bowls. They've won under a number of different coaches going from Chuck knoll to Bill cower. And now Mike Tomlin they've had three coaches for ever. That's they've only had three different coaches the Browns themselves. Have had so many they've had three different coaches over the past. Once they finally play a game twenty nineteen over the course of seventeen games, they have had three different coaches. The Steelers just such a stable organization, and we're starting to see some cracks in that it begins with Levy on bell last year doesn't like that. He was franchise tag one a long term deal sits out in entire year. I'm not sure how many franchises would handle it the way that the the Steelers did and would handle it just. Yeah. Go head sit out. We'll continue to find your. We'll be okay. And we're we're okay. If you're not here, and that just turned into such a circus in then we hit this off season. Are they gonna use the transition tag on them because the franchise tag is probably going to cost too much? Maybe they use this different option. Try to trade him off of that that ultimately the Steelers decided to step away yesterday on NFL live Louis Riddick explained. Why the Steelers don't like it when lady on bells necessarily around? You know, when you think about the Pittsburgh Steelers trend, you think about just how regimen that they are. And the way they like to conduct business like a whole lot of circus atmosphere surrounding their organization typically, I know it's hard to believe considering what's going on over the past year. But I think this is definitely a situation, and we talked about it a number of different times where they truly believe. This may be addition by subtraction. That's Louis Riddick in. This is first and last I'm gave nights to land on ESPN radio in they're going to end up getting a compensatory pick when he leaves in free agency more than likely with what he will end up getting paid and the amount he's going to play in. He's probably going to be a great player wherever he ends up. They'll get the highest level of compensation for him likely a third round pick. Now other things factor in in terms of who the Steelers signed, but he is going to net. The Steelers a fairly decent pick in terms of compensatory. And of course, that's going to be addition by subtraction. Because he didn't bring them anything last year, but headaches, and if he's no longer with the organization, they decide to walk away from it. But that's not the only situation. It's no longer Levy on bell in an isolated incident. As Antonio Brown continues to be frustrated with everything that's going on with the Pittsburgh Steelers. And he's calling Ben Rothlisberger bed. Roth Asperger's calling out him ABC ends up meeting with ownership. They both decide ultimately that they want to move on and Germany Fowler over at ESPN dot com. Has a nice piece talking about Kevin Colbert, the general manager of the Steelers, and he. He just throws all of his weight behind. Ben Rothlisberger calling rothlisburger the unquestioned leader of the locker room calling him an elder statesman and a Super Bowl winner. If our players are smarts. They listened to him because he's been there. This is the one that if I'm a Steelers player that I don't, you know, the rest. Okay, he's supporting the quarterback. But this is the quote that if I'm again, if I'm a member of the Steelers, this one is just not going to sit. Well, with me, I honestly believe that can be a burden on him more often than he'd like to admit because he's got fifty two kids under him, quite honestly, that's from the general manager of the Pittsburgh Steelers. First of all if you believe that that's your fault because you're the one who built this roster and put everything together. But when you take a look at the Steelers in what they have on their team. It's not as if Brian Ross Burger's been a tremendous player. He led the league in interceptions last season. And they've got other guys that have been pretty good. If you're L Hendro Villanueva who's gone to a couple of pro bowls. Now, you're thirty years old going wait on a kid. That's that's one that. If I am the Steelers if I'm a member of the Steelers that just doesn't sit well with me. So now you have Antonio Brown. He's looking to potentially go elsewhere. And where could he potentially go a couple of teams could be a fit but field Yates yesterday. Golic and wingo thought that the Green Bay Packers? And Aaron Rodgers could be a really good fit Franch oneal Brown. I think the Packers check a lot of the reasonable boxes because it would accomplish Pittsburgh's goal of not trading him to an AFC team bread or an AFC north team specifically, but also any ended AFC team, but any good right in Kansas City. New England, Los Angeles cross them off the list. It also is a team. That's well run from a cap standpoint. Aaron Rodgers I don't think I don't think you want to see another year of the palpable frustration that we censor Marilyn Rogers, which was in part. What's obviously was because they were. Not winning. But it felt like, hey, like, I'm doing it all my own in a lot of ways Davante Adams is is amazing. You know, they have some good piece of offense, but Antonio Brown along with Davante Adams would be borderline unstoppable. They've got three extra picks. I a fourth and a six this year in the draft if I'm Green Bay, and I'm looking at my quarterback at eight thirty five I might be willing to roll the dice. That was field Yates yesterday and Golic and wingo. This is first and last I'm Cape nights. All on ESPN radio. The Packers could make sense for nine Tonio Brown for everything that field Yates said they do have the extra draft picks. And I don't think it's going to take a high draft pick the Steelers don't have much leverage here if they indeed end up trading Antonio Brown. The other thing that factors in what our team's going to have to guarantee. So it seems like it's a two tiered negotiation. Now, you have to negotiate a term in in order to acquire Antonio Brown with the Steelers, and then you have to negotiate with in Tonio who on his Instagram said, he wants more guaranteed money on his contract, basically that he wants the last three years guaranteed. So now you have to negotiate with them. And if you end up giving up more to him, maybe you end up going back to the Steelers. Okay, we're giving more money. We don't want to give you as as much draft capital. It's going to be a complicated process. No matter where in Tonio Brown ends up. But I host a show every day in. Milwaukee Arizona walkie in Madison. On ESPN, Milwaukee ESPN Madison and yesterday, we were talking about Antonio Brown clearly fields brought it up and. We did a poll on our show and fans in in. Wisconsin are split fifty fifty and I would guess that. That would be pretty typical memeber wearing Tonio Brown ends up because yes, he is a great talent. And he has had one hundred receptions over the last six seasons. Nobody NFL history has ever done that six consecutive one hundred reception seasons. He has been such a difference maker and such a playmaker for the Steelers. But now he's going to be thirty one clearly comes with some baggage if he shows up in Green Bay, and he's not the number one overall target because of the chemistry that Aaron Rodgers has with the vaunting Adams is going to be an issue is he going to have some sort of friction with Aaron Rodgers their or does he show up? The offense becomes really good. And he becomes okay. With the rule. He has in the Packers offense because like field Yates said the Packers offense would seem borderline unstoppable. The Packers have tried to do things. Over the past couple of seasons and just haven't worked out to give Rogers more weapons Jimmy Graham didn't have a great season last year before that they signed Martellus Bennett. He exits halfway through the season. They let go of Jordy Nelson in order to being and use the money that Georgie would've made in order to pay Jimmy Graham, the offense needs more weapons and Antonio Brown could fit that. But it all comes down for every one of these teams. Where does where's that line? How much are you willing to give up and how much are you willing to spend the Packers extra draft capital? And they're almost always in a good spot in terms of the salary cap. And they have a new head coach coming in second year general manager if they want you do the best they can with Aaron Rodgers on his fight. What is likely going to be his final contract extension that he signed during the season last year? If you want to make a real run at that, maybe in Tonio Brown and injured going to have to roll the dice at some point. Maybe they decide to roll the dice unin schone O'Brien that is straight talk.

"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030
"Win out of nine Super Bowls under the Brady Bill. Check era this six and three in Super Bowls. That's just unheard of. Now, see the six and three or five and three. And I'm doubting. My math for one reason. The Pittsburgh Steelers have six Super Bowls in their history. So if I'm not mistaken the patriots have five so if they win two weeks into weeks, then they will have tied the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh Steelers at one to this goes back to the seventy s. Didn't get back for two more Super Bowls wants more and then in the nineties, I think they want one. Jerome Bettis his last year. And I think Rothlisberger did win another. So one hundred percent sure that Pittsburgh is one six Super Bowls and the patriots have won five. So wouldn't it be nice to Pittsburgh because they feel they have earned bragging rights, and when we have beaten them. As.
"pittsburgh steelers" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"That gift choosing to take charge of my life to express decree tippety by tally and wholeness that truly defined me. I don't know it sounded good. But I don't really know what that means Koby. I'm gonna try to try to break it down. Good. He must have a feeling of bondage with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Right. His whole his whole EPA tad's. Right. There was I have free will I can make my own decisions. I'm not control about what people say or do. And that's like that's a shot at the organism. Now, look the brass from Pittsburgh will tell you. We we never made a feel like he was being controlled or we never tried to put him in a box or whatever we know about the incident with filming in in the locker room, like, they're they're they're okay. That's not the biggest. I mean. Yeah. Exactly. So, but but what he was saying to me the way I interpreted is some form of fashion within this organization. Whether it be people at the top Tomlin are Rooney or the ownership or whether it'd be being he felt like somebody was trying to control them. And I don't know if that's the case or not. But that's how I interpret what what he posted his question. This something going on there. No, quite right. And we hear big band. There wasn't argument. And the report say there was an argument like how much you are in the locker rooms how much do we not know of what's going on with the Steelers about eighty five percent of what it feels like it feels like you're just seeing a tiny little bit. Been been is a deflector like being not going approach prostate. He just just like about labia. I'm Bill like he came out and was critical of I'm Bill, and they're said when he was about to return he reached out on like man understands he playing the game ban is like a politician. Right. So you think that being in a be on good terms and a BI wouldn't have a conversation with his QB? Like, we this. The QB has been throwing the ball and you've been thousand yards the last six seasons. If you don't call me text me back, and we're working together lay. Like that like that. You'd better be international or you don't want it on a rap exactly that's a wrap. So that's that's that's my conclusion. You know, your media superstar you Ron kit up earlier today. And you said something that I found interesting, okay. About the Cleveland Browns in the same division as the Steelers. You said that the Browns was the coaching vacancy that is most entr. Regaining most enticing to you. When you've got Aaron Rodgers and the Packers sitting right there as well. Why did you say that? What do you mean? What are you going to do in Green Bay? That's not been done before draft. Some offense skill position players know, which not like the excellent players around extra sensors. They expectation there is once you do that you're going to be a good football team. Right. You're speaking like all we not far removed from twenty five years of just abysmal play by the Cleveland Browns. Are we not removed from drafting first round quarterbacks that never panned out? Now, it looks like Baker will are we not far removed from the Cleveland Browns, not winning one game. And now they're seven seven in one. That translates the players I say Kobe say it all the time coaches are very important, right coaches are very football, especially football, the players got to get it done though. And if I'm a coach and I'm sitting on outside looking in. I'm saying, you know, what Cleveland got a hell of a nucleus like Cleveland got sides of the play both sides of the ball. This award. Got injured the cornerback that they drafted. He was bowling before the season started peppers is there you got Myles Garrett of front like you look on the other side. Jarvis Landry just got his big deal. Obviously Baker Mayfield niche up going over thousand and didn't even start the. Entirety season you the offense of line is is really good that de land forces pressure. They got guys that can play all over the place. If you're a coach especially now with a league is trending young hot offense coordinator, and you get a chance to get Baker Mayfield and Jarvis Landry. And and all and Joko at tight end. Do are you kidding me?.
