Good afternoon, everybody, and welcome you to Steel City podcast year old sportscaster.
Unfortunately, Chuck could not make it today, but I'm calling from 11 and happy to have you with us today.
So let's talk about the pics.
Berg, Steelers You know, the stairs, my favorite team and all.
They got off to a rough start of rough start.
Some may say, you know, starting over to isn't the greatest, but there is hope.
I mean, not much, obviously.
Must you probably know that banger office worker has to get elbow ending surgery that will keep him out for the rest of the season rest of the season.
And Mason will, um, called the plays and stuff will be under center working, and he came in the second.
I did a pretty good drama, said he did a pretty good job.
He found McDonald two times in the end zone, conducted himself well, stood in the pocket, made some goes when he had to make sure throws ran on 1/3 down.
So there's there's definitely hope.
They got the team to do it.
They got the team that I got you D'oh! Good whipped up in the second quarter of that game.
They got James Carter, who's a little banged up, but I think we'll be good to go with three.
They got these young guys kind of James Washington Deante Johnson made a heck of a catch, but let's just get this straight.
Deonte Dante Mon Chri should be cut.
That guy cannot catch for his luck.
He is absolutely awful.
First driver to Gate makes Rudolph comes in burn and 7 0/3 There's a pass to deal.
Don't aim on cruise hands.
Hits him in the helmet ball.
Bounces the ball up, interception tee off, scored an extra when you're a big oven all seed and signing it.
Had that money. Good.
No one's gonna send that high.
You? No one thought that hired Dante Moncrief.
We just thought he would do his job.
Do his job Pretty good. Number two.
Maybe number three.
Whether Howard James Washington plays, It's another reason I want to, uh, lilies.
And I'd like to pull up James Washington.
Why isn't wise Johnny Houlton playing ahead of us? Why's Johnny Horton playing? I had a James Washington.
I don't know why.
I mean, he shows it in the preseason.
He shows the glimpses of what this guy can become.
He's a deep threat.
Mason rode off plan.
Why are we playing? A guy was on the practice squad before the first game.
Clam Gautam in there.
See what? Come on. Skewers.
All right, let's focus from the offense to the defense.
His scenes yesterday were horrible.
Yeah, I mean, cut to him.
He did a bench Williams out.
You're gonna broke coach for a reason.
Bigger scheme out figure scheme.
Out to stop there on the second half.
We cannot stop the run lock lock.
It killed us in the in the slot.
Governor Bush and have a great game, but he's still young.
Still 21 years old, he's barely allowed to buy a drink.
Folks barrel Edmund's employ the best, but he's a safety.
You let G K Metcalf ran right by him.
Stephen Nelson was playing really well, really well, that guys bound to be a star in the burgh.
He has been playing very, very well, too.
It's also playing well.
Sure, it looks like the 2016 to it, showing glimpses of what he could become.
And a measure should skewers one person that should be off the team after me. Chick alone.
If we change clothes, should be on off the team on the Y zone.
I'm a wise on it.
First of all, what? You have a two year, eight million? The only thing for you familiar in this off season.
Why have you given that? What was recon rotated for? Gym teacher.
What clearly is not doing his job well, Sean Penny right? We're right past him.
He's clearly not doing his job.
Unacceptable from Keith Butler and this whole defense.
Oh, race right off.
Kept them in that game.
He did what he had to do.
He did what he had to dio.
Joe Haden had some missed tackles here and there.
You give him 11 million this offseason.
That looks like it's not working out the best for the Steelers.
Let's take a call.
Well, you on the Steel City podcast, will.
How you doing? Pretty good.
How about you? Good.
Not so good After the steward is lost, it was really I have two points for you ones on offense.
Ones on defense which one.
Do you want to talk about first defense? What you got for us? But defense? I think I've been saying this for a while now that the Steelers need to build from the ground up completely demolish what they've built so far.
I think that Steelers have the players needed be a middle of the road or even a top tier descends in the league.
But they're trying to run a system that was too confusing for the players.
It just It just does not work they had.
I mean, how many of the past drafts have drafted defensive players, Um, in the first round or in the early rounds? And I mean, we we shouldn't have the personnel on the guys to do well, but I think a lot of it comes down to scheme.
Yeah, like you said earlier on and it's just we need first start, I get what you're saying.
But we spent so many first picks first round picks on this player that we think is gonna be like the next big thing and he takes like, 56 years to develop and then they end up not being not great.
But the PRI's a great example, but the pre isn't doing much.
He was quiet yesterday.
I thought he was sleeping.
At one point, I couldn't really tell.
But why? Why, really Why we build your defense Because you got you got some good players.
Bush is one of them, too.
It's one of them are using, like get rid of the players.
That part, I think Right now the sealer is run like a 342 gap Key sense again under power.
They used to run a three for one gap, and they used to use the nose tackle a lot or under coward.
They used to use Casey Hampton.
Now we've got killed.
We've been getting told off one.
Yeah, thieves have been running all over us, and that's and I think a lot of times, people playing about our secondary.
But place when the second day is coming down to help so much because they think of it.
It's a well, we get killed on play action and all of the times the run sets up a pass in football, but I think that it's just a steam thing.
I think we have the guys to be a good defense.
We just need toe, put them in a better position.
Yeah, I see where you're going.
But the game is changing.
You gotta face that.
There's no more grounded pilot.
30 touches a game.
It's all drop back and pass.
So why give him a nose tackle? Who's on Li like? Forcing, like, needed against the run and just dropped, like seven guys in the secondary? Yeah, that's a good point.
I think that, um I just think that you gotta turn stuff used to stop.
I think that it's his teams are running like New England, went down our throats and Seattle yesterday did.
And then, uh, they just they just would get, like, six years here, seven years.
Then that sets up a whole, like whole half the playbook that we don't want the available on those started long situations.
But now, like team against Yeah.
I think Russell Wilson ran up the field for $19.
Put a spy on him.
Put Bush on him.
You traded up for him for a reason.
Put us find and what you got for offense, man.
I think that, um, you know, excited to see the bends going gone.
But I think Mason Rudolph proves that he couldn't be.
He couldn't It could be a new Tommy Maddox situation.
Hopefully, I think shoots.
He did pretty well.
I just would like to say that I mean, really get better than that.
He threw the team's first touchdown.
Yeah, but I also noticed this.
The Steelers would run a lot of, like, spread offense.
They'd have a kind of wonder sleepers on the field, and I think that likes to do that.
He likes to have, like, a lot of options, and I think that that sort of, um, offense worked really well with Antonio Brown, who is one of the best writers here, is in a league and get open.
But then, whenever Mason Rudolph linen, it seemed like the Steelers simplified their playbook.
They ran a lot of a lot more plays under center with guys with multiple tight ends, the guys around the line of scrimmage and close to him, and it seemed to work more so It seems tha this sort of thing happened when, um, fools took over for went it almost seemed like book was too complicated.
And when then when pulls took over, they simplified it.
And so I thought that the simple is better technique works well, I mean, the flea flicker play was not simple at all.
And that was one of the most exciting place of the whole season.
But I just Yeah, I mean, like in the fact that they ran it with Rudolph instead of better office.
Well, I mean, I can't even remember the last time Better office Burger ran a trick.
Plays may be implementing more.
Tripp won a game.
It seems like that is gonna be that kind of season, because offensively, we're not getting production anywhere else besides McDonald.
Right now, I like what she just said about Tripp Place.
Try won a game still worth.
Don't do it ever again.
Try, want a game? Maybe it works again.
Do a flea flicker.
Do yourself in, Bring up a couple complaints.
And I think they are simplifying the playbook because, you know, makes Rudolph's in a sophomore.
You season for sex.
And he has not been taken.
First team rats.
No one thought that Ben would get her.
They thought it would be another jolly year.
We've been better off this world.
That's not the case.
And I think the call Mason Rudolph stop because he's gonna be nervous next week, Obviously, because it's the first Senate will start.
They gotta just speed number 30 feet.
Put six Office of Martin in there.
Run the ball right down the 40 Niners.
Yeah, I think that's definitely a good idea.
Um, hopefully James Connor is healthy for next weekend.
I mean, our other backs, huh? Samuels and Benny smell right? Yeah.
Um, I also like to talk.
Apparently, many Snow has has had issues in the locker room.
You right that I have not had that? Well, I don't know.
I heard that he hasn't been paying much respect to, um, older players.
And I don't know if this is true in on off the maybe want a fact.
Check me on this.
It just seems like the Steelers can't get away from this drama in the locker room.
And, um, it's almost like the question is, but he you put up with it, or we'll Tomlin kind of come in it.
Benny Smell s only got a few can carries the last game.
It is gonna be interesting to see if Corner is injured or gets injured. Player.
What? Yeah, I don't want another at a level Belle situation.
Like he's a welcome You shut your mouth.
Shut your mouth.
You're not even playing in the third down bath. Shut your mouth.
But I don't know if that's sure not I have to research that, but, um, they should call Well, and we'll move on here.
Have a good night.
It's a good call there.
Um, we'll move on with these, uh, stealer section.
They gotta adjust the defense.
That's pretty much it.
Just say they gotta address it cause you got old Jimmy Garoppolo coming in.
Can be Someday he's gonna say a lot about this year's team.
Do they need seven? Do they need seven to win? I don't know.
We'll see my opinion, Mr Madoff Twin.
That skin has to play slightly above average.
We're gonna pile in the rock.
We're gonna pound the locker.
You put six tight on six.
Six. Offense of lime in it.
We're gonna pound that thing until they can't stop it apart.
We try and stop.
We'll probably trying to stack the box.
But that's when the play actions comport.
It opens up the offense there, simplifying the offense.
Rudolph isn't seven.
What offers in seven? You could say one good half.
I'd like to get to Big Red.
Might retire folks.
Big Grand might retire.
It's gonna be 12 months, I said.
I'm not mistaken.
Well, maybe eight.
I don't know The exact words I saw eight and 11 Article 12 to 15 and the other then might retire.
May not want to deal with this and just recover at home.
Relax in having a DiGiorno cooking in the oven.
He's got his money.
You got money to do it.
You just got a new contract this offseason.
We'll see the Let's get the wheat to We'll review.
Buccaneers weeks, Panthers, Man.
This character's teams overrated, man.
Is it over it? You can't beat the Buccaneers at home with James Winston.
You kidding me? Give me Get me the Buccaneers at home.
Come on, Camden.
Come on now, Caffrey.
They held him well. Bruce Arians.
They had their star rookie my back throughout the whole game from the SEC order.
We'll see, Though.
Buccaneers May Full Panthers may advise now parents There's over two Buccaneers, one of one divisions wide open because Drew Brees out division is wide open in that mission.
That was big game.
We'll get to that later when we want to.
Cardinals, Rivers, Ravens Excuse me, Lamar Jackson continues to impress, but let's take a little trip during, Not get Mo Jackson.
Yeah, yes, he had some good throws, but he missed Mark Andrews, who's like 65 How do you miss him? He's good.
I'll give you that.
Good enough to beat the Cardinals and Buccaneers.
Don't know if it's good enough to win prom time.
We'll see, though.
They got the chief six week and Kyla Mary.
He's just taking baby steps slow, all right, They weren't gonna be good this year anyway.
They're taking baby steps.
We're taking baby steps.
He is improving.
He's getting used to, uh, Klytus Cliff system.
We'll be all right.
Chargers and Myers.
Beginning on my earlier podcast with Chuck.
I think the Chargers are gonna be the most overrated team in the NFL this year.
You have a 38 year old quarterback who can't move out of the pocket, Not that good in my dorm, not a Hall of Famer.
First of all, I don't know why you could put Philip Rivers above and Eli Manning in the whole fame.
I don't get that.
Does he have the stats, though? Does he hasn't won a playoff game since forever? I think No.
Since you lost the Patriots in your C championship, he didn't win last year.
They beat the Ravens last year. That's all. Impressive.
You breed a rookie quarterback. Congrats.
Well, Rivers do something this year.
They're undefeated under feet that Lions get John back.
Patricia, 10 in one rest offer looks a lot better than last year.
He's got his weapons.
Can't Golda Marvin Jones.
TJ Hawkinson, who didn't have a great game, but he's still good.
Carry on Johnson.
Detroit stood there.
Just not great living on Coulson, Titans, Titans.
Everyone thought that Titans were good and the Browns were just good as well.
I think it's the other side.
I think you flip it around because they lost their coal to awesome charters.
You going for set? Might win an award this year.
He could win the award for comeback clarity.
My we'll see that looks very unrelated.
Other egg looks new.
We five will be out of their Blaine Gabbert will be constructing a time Ryan Tannehill love it bags and started 40 Niners and Bangles.
Stuart's got 40 Niners coming up.
You look good, but again, they beat the Buccaneers and the Bangles.
Maybe the Buccaneers and the Bangles.
Excuse me, I said.
The Ravens beat the Buccaneers and the Bangles.
I met the Ravens, Dolphins and the Cardinals.
About that, the 40 Niners beat Bangles and the Buccaneers.
Let's read the big test for them.
No one knows what's going on.
We'll see that they're legit or not.
We'll see if they have a legit defense.
Legit offense, Not the weapons.
Do it. I just don't know.
Jaguars and Texans starter men shoot, baby.
Wait 1/2 of a game.
Couldn't get the two point conversion because letter for net did not reach her to pile on.
No, I don't wanna get.
Would have been one of once in during Activision's customer Boko.
Theo around Texans around two Texans bounce right back from the lost get States wrote their one on one sloppy game from Liberal.
Would expect that kind of division.
Good defense is all around.
Vikings and Packers.
Aaron Rodgers came up.
Len kinda came back to reality.
He's good. I get that. He's a Hall of Famer.
You good? Don't know if he's great.
No, you fantasy fan's fantasy football fans who, uh, picked up Jimmy Graham hoping for a big week after he caught a touchdown last week.
He got you Ciro points.
I apologize on that.
Even say together.
So I might add Collagen apologizing.
But Kings played hard.
They just stopped to down, down too early.
And those two ladies come back.
Cowboys and Redskins.
This Cowboys team is good.
I don't know if they got the defense.
I don't know if they got to coach, but their offense Red Hot would come on more calm place.
Another reason my dad should get 35 mil, maybe even 40.
You cannot 12. The offense corner.
You saw how that happened in Pittsburgh with Ben and Todd Haley.
He's sitting on the streets right now.
Been sitting in the surgery room.
It doesn't work if you don't like your offense coordinator.
But McCarthy and Iron Rogers, because he was fired, gotta have love with the office. Cornetto.
That's why column or adapt will fit out just fine.
He didn't receive a lot of care.
I wonder, I don't know.
See, every time I put that game on, Tony Pollitz seems to be in the game, and Deke was hanging on satellite compost.
It's team was still dangerous.
So very dangerous.
Look out for the Cowboys.
The words activity Steelers and Seahawks would kind of talk about this one awful game from the Steelers defense offense played pretty good.
Just the ultimate better team that game.
They deserved the win it Syria's don't defense put out like 1 30 rushing yards by the Seahawks second half, then Chris Carson and all over them, athlete Chick Alok and Clueless.
Damn the colors.
Our boy on kicking penalty.
That gave him a first down.
My legs were touch out.
Can't happen mentally.
Mistakes look clean up.
They got 40 Niners next week.
That's a mental test going on the road.
You don't play well in the Red West.
We'll see how that compromise those.
And how about the Buffalo Bills taken out to New York teams? Good job, Buffalo.
Too bad you got patriots in your division.
Too bad you got Patriots buffaloes actually building it.
Sneaky Good team down there above.
Uh, on Cody four from Oklahoma.
You find a New Year's, I forget his name.
Josh Allen is I love Josh out.
Oh, I don't care about the oh, who's accuracy is not pinpoint.
Who cares? He's biggie.
Strongly fixed on the thermic system.
He's good down there in Buffalo.
Pound the Rock with Devon Singletary.
Bride receivers are great, but they will address us with Address that with the draft this week.
This year they got it all over and Terrain admits fleeing the defense to Davis.
And with Marcus Corner in a second there, that's a good team.
So right there on the Patriots division? No, they beat the Giants.
Giants need to give state calma wraps.
You know why? Because you know my fancy.
Need more reps from, say, choirboys.
Patriots, dolphins, patriots Not really gonna explain this Most frequent girlfriends and tell your Brown off their first drive looked a little raggedy, but he'll get back in.
There will be be SS was Tom Brady Help come directly to practice Monday morning because he's gonna be an angel for Bill Belgium and tell you about contempt if he wants.
Honestly, he played one game you got.
It's not Belle, he condemned.
If he wants, What else? With all these allegations, who knows what if maybe we'll play another game.
I think you will.
Cheese maters Patrick Holmes popped off in the first half.
Four touchdowns, 300 something yards and second.
I was kind of a battle of the punters, as I like to say about a little punk Cheese.
Didn't really do much Raiders and do much knock on.
What if you're with me, they need to get grooving out there.
I don't think Goodman's a great coach, sat out NFL for 15 years, comes back.
Think he's going to turn around.
This Raiders organization has worked so far.
Rick Simpson, Rams Teddy, Who was your shot? Blood And you? You blew it.
You've got six more weeks to do it though it's got such one week's prove himself that he could send backup potentially take over for Jay Reiss.
Juries is free agent after this year.
How you see, like a two year extension at the end? I'll be fine.
He couldn't grip the ball, but we'll be fine.
I say we, Kate, he could play.
We examine what? They don't want to rest it on that Brands look good. Cooper.
Couple of good after that.
A c l terror A year ago, an offense is still explosive.
Todd Gurley seems to be, uh, receiving more touches, which is good.
And if you're the grand strands, I know you guys want Thio save Todd Girl before safe for the playoffs, and I think that's a great idea.
Seven. From playoffs.
You're gonna need them to get past Patriots and even the saints.
Well, this seems we'll meet again and it's gonna be a heckle.
Did it? Branson Broncos Bears final kicker.
Clap it up, Bears finally have a picker.
Good job. You're one of one, though.
You're in the Pakis division when the Vikings division Who knows it? Malcolm, we look good.
We bounced back from week one.
Rough puffs start from the rookie Mitch. Diversity.
Also kind of bounce back.
Emmanuel Sanders had a great day is former Steeler Joe Flacco performed another Joe Flacco.
Basically, next we sit again for that Eagles and Falcons on Juror.
If you're listening right now, you guys didn't blew it.
I mean, you guys did get kind of lucky with Carson Wentz getting the 1st 1st down.
We threw it upto Agler in the fucking secondary closely.
But Eagles will be back.
It's gonna be a dogfight with them.
The Cowboys in that division.
Falcon's looking good in their division.
They got packers in a couple weeks.
I think that's gonna decide.
It's either gonna be waiting.
I said, the poppers so much, The Falcons is wide open.
They got the Saints, whose quarterback is out six weeks.
So it's a big, big couple weeks coming up from the Falcons.
We'll see how they capitalized.
Eagle strands don't work.
Well done. Jets.
Uh, Trevor, Simeon is hitting the star tonight.
Sure, because this will take up in my next point.
It's your the Browns, and you have all this talent and the biggest opponent in your division.
Next starting quarterback.
Future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger got hurt.
When? When? When you could beat the Ravens.
You can pick the Ravens.
Their biggest opponent for the division is now.
You could say out of the running, but I'm not saying you're out running, exacting.
They got the team to do it.
But in the Browns eyes, I bet they think there are.
Shows her out of the running, so don't prove yourself. Baker.
Go prove yourself.
Go show the world while you deserve 45.
$44 million a year.
$45 million a year. $30 million.
Do you know what? His contract's up.
He's gonna be a greedy.
He's gonna be greedy.
He's gonna be like Dak.
Dak deserves itto.
Baker doesn't deserve it, though.
Later. Neck out.
Speak against Titans.
I don't know if he's gonna be great or not.
We'll see, though.
Games at 8 13 on ESPN.
Go watch it. It's gonna be a dogfight.
Level of elegance, of grounds.
Well, Freddie, coaching service, team discipline on us.
They're six on the Sarah about this penalties last week against a Titans.
Gotta fix that up for your Freddy even know how they got Daniel Jenin? Uh, Pat Shurmur Stroke Daniel Jones, have you? I coached him up.
He like, man, it could be a better head coach.
Trump Asher, actually think about Schumer's pretty good coz we're not making the right decisions that will benefit him in the future.
You're going to you got a tough division.
You arguably have Top three team in the division.
Top five teen to two of the top five teams and divisions in the Eagles and Cowboys in the NFL.
Start Daniel Jones.
See what the kid could D'oh! See what it's like with him and say called See what he can? D'oh! Also, though gifts acorn more cares.
I need him from our capacity and for our final segment of the day.
You gotta see predictions of the air.
No, Hopefully you guys won this week and fantasy I did in one leg.
I wanted all my legs.
I'm one on one on one league and I'm two and on to other weeks, so I'm looking good, huh? Predictions.
The state's star running back won't finish in the top five of points in fantasy football on the running back section, I think, Oh, uh, how It was a great player.
I think he's a great player with degrees.
I don't know if he's gonna be a great player with Taliban, and when he gets down to the red zone, they put with Davis Marion because he's more of a power back.
Alvin fans don't album Camaro owners and fantasy.
Don't be worried, but definitely keep an eye on that.
Keep an eye on that.
Don't get to running backs if you want to trade.
We'll see, though.
And I think Julio Jones welcome star was he were at a heck of a game offside.
Chrissy Eagles on screen.
That was for 64 yards.
Well, not will finish under ah, 100 receptions.
That man doesn't target him that much.
It seems like Calvin release a new dog.
Seems that Calvin release in the dark.
Well, you're Jones.
Do you not get targets in the red zone? This this add up, I think who you will finish with under 12 TV's in the season and I'll talk to him in the red zone.
I don't know why I could just make you Matt Ryan thing.
He's biggie. Strong you can get open easily.
So the Dane ball, huh? The next one.
Dak Prescott will finish Number two and fantasy quarterbacks behind Patrick My Holmes himself, the homes that have a Press Corp.
He was at negative points for me yesterday, and he finished with 26.
He's active player cowboys.
Be dumb to not sign him.
It'd be very dumb.
Jerry, Give him his money.
I don't know how he doesn't deserve it.
I don't say if it's a little too much Jerry.
If you don't think he deserves 40 million, you better look at the things you bought for $40 million.
Maybe. Who knows that? Crystal.
I think he's gonna have a great year, but the hose will be a tad bit better.
The house? Well, the homes will come down from last year, but it was still be phenomenal.
And I think Darren Waller will took finish as he taught five.
Tight end seems like their cars forever. Target.
Antonio Brown left on the off season.
Seems like it's Ty Well, Williams with in the red zone.
Derek while there.
How you doing? Biggie Strong.
I watched him on hard knocks. He's funny.
Look out for that dollar.
God, pick him up.
If he's on the waiver wire, picked him up.
Even if you have the drop like a Delaney Walker, this guy has more potential than Delaney.
Start on that Sweet.
Okay, you 10 points.
We'll get you 10 points.
Yeah, for our final prediction, Cooper Cup will finish with the most receptions on this very talented Rams football team and mostly the offense.
I think Jared Goff is super culture.
They put him up in the slot slides and mash.
It's a nightmare for secondary.
She gets him over men always like Edelman.
In my opinion, he's minimizing an element.
He finds the sauce spots.
Jared got frozen the ball.
That could be the new Tom Brady Julian L.
Caption could be there. Gosta Cup.
Could be Tom could be the next Tom Brady.
I think he's getting in sauce box.
He had a heck of a game yesterday after a slow start, Week one, but he's come back from a C L tear.
He'll get you released 15 points again.
Re gate pops off.
We'll have one game.
We gets 30 maybe even for you.
And that is going to do it.
