wait to the Steelers back and go.
This town of Pittsburgh's hard so Steeler nation has the best fans We are from Pittsburgh.
Six time Super Bowl coach Tomlin is ready to win with ground to do Brian and way needed ways on a knock you around.
Wait, His bag's gone now the offense is ready to score.
And there's one thing way.
Hey, she's here too soon this down, guys appreciate you hanging out, stopping by doing things in the stuffs.
Uh, always, always, always appreciate.
Appreciate you guys.
And unfortunately, um, as you guys heard on our ah, our last cast, um, Evan is out of town right now.
I'm, ah, doing a solo recap after the game.
I was doing some ah, some other for volatile ese Going out enjoying Ah, the game at the bar.
What a fucking win.
What a definitive Steelers staple wind.
Um, couple things that I want to point out.
Ah, before I get into any comments that that you guys have, um you gotta think the play calling going into this game is, uh, rely on the defense, right? Rely on the defense and rely on the defense and let Hodges, you know, hit hit, those couple shots that you take down field.
But more importantly, you got to get the run game going.
What do we do today? Hodges? Doc.
Good old doc stands up in the pocket.
He's taken honestly, no kinds of hits.
Our offensive line played great, but he's standing strong in the pocket, doing the things that he has to do as the quarterback that he's expected that be at this point in the season, from where you know his story comes from and x y and Z and all that Barlow block right corner played out of his fucking mind.
Uh, Snell picking up for Samuels.
Lots of lots of good things to show for this game, but the defense played out of their fucking mind, and I love it.
I fucking love it, Dude, we're getting back to that old school smash mouth football both on the offensive side and the defense of side.
Devin Bush gets up penalty for the finger wag.
No, that's our defense.
Getting that swag back getting that that mindset that Okay, You know what? Give him 15.
Were still gonna fuck you up.
Were Russian three were rushing four, and Rivers still looked honestly, that entire game, he looked under duress the entire time.
Can anyone in the chat tell me differently? Like I will hand up.
If I am saying something wrong, Call me out on it.
But at what point in in that game did Philip Rivers look comfortable? Yeah, I mean, we had him on his toes the whole game.
He was getting hit.
He's getting knocked down.
He's He has certain things that are in his head.
Whether it's from the right, the left evident I make the joke.
And but Dupri? But Dupri played out of his fucking mind tonight, absolutely out of his mind.
And who's who's gonna tell me otherwise? I know no one here is gonna argue with that fact, right? I mean, we can all agree that the defense played well.
Devin Bush made up for that finger, which I loved.
I haven't seen that on the defense where we we can get away with those bullshit costs in a time.
Where were what? Minus minus six and 1/2 were almost getting a touchdown on the spread and we beat the dog shit out of the team that we're playing against.
One of the greatest quarterbacks in this era of you know, 7 4008 now, I mean, come on, come on.
Philip Rivers is a really high calorie quarterback.
I fully disagree with it.
The guy that he doesn't fucking curse.
I think we can all agree on that.
But at the same time, if you don't appreciate what he does with the talent around him, like he puts place together, he is a very, very good quarterback.
This year's defense, who is looking for an identity right now in these last three games has gained that back.
And they have that that swagger like that.
Hey, hit us in the mouth and we're gonna fucking break your nose.
That mentality we have that back.
We have that back.
You don't expect Hodges to be this unbelievably miraculously performance quarterback that I think a lot of a lot of Steeler fans were hoping for tonight.
He did what he had to again.
The play calling goes back.
If you're smart, which which the coaches in Pittsburgh are, they have proven that they are not that smart.
But you establish the run game.
You take a lot of shit off of Hodges if you establish the run.
Connor played his ass off what she needed to what she needed to.
He needed to have a definitive bully run game game.
In my opinion, he did.
He had a bully, a hard bully game.
He's not the guy that's gonna get you the edge.
I mean, uh, on more than more than a couple plays, we've seen him not make the edge and get like, a one yard loss.
Snell and Samuels, we're going to be that guy.
They're like, you're off tackle, you know? 3rd 11 Sparks that are come around side.
And you know, you're kind of playing for whether it's it's time management or whether it's, you know, you have ah, comfortable lead and you can rely on your defense.
Corner is not that guy that's gonna beat the entire defense around the edge corner had a really, really good game between the tackles.
I think one passing attempt that he should have had dropped in an open field.
He did every single thing that he needed to do with honestly, what could be a fucking broken rib? I'm sitting, watching when he went, like, end over, right? Look like, hey, got the the wind knocked out of him.
Could have been a rib.
You know, they're there in the not in a tent, but, like, you know, on on the sideline, he's on the table, and they're like, checking his back and doing all the touching things that, you know, check and shit.
What? It could have been his rib.
What if you played the rest of that game with a broken rib? Fractured rib? Whatever.
We're not gonna know until I don't know. Tomorrow.
Tuesday, do you see? To played his ass off defense, played their fucking ass off and made a staple performance.
And what we need this season.
So as one to running game was great, Connor hands down.
Best performance that he could have put on tonight.
Played within himself, Didn't make any spectacular 50 60 yard runs.
He got those nitty gritty yards that we needed tonight.
It's too three for quarterback like Hodges.
If you need him to beat the opponent in the passing game you come out, run the ball on first down.
And you know what? If you go three and out, you go three and out.
But you need to pass the next two regardless.
Regardless of what that first down running players, you gotta get dude into a rhythm.
His first NFL start is the prime time game away in San Diego, Los Angeles.
Besides, besides the point, did anyone see the live broadcast of how many terrible towels we're going off in their stadium? My goodness, home away from home and people want to hold on.
People want to say, Dallas, Dallas is a team of America.
Did get the fuck out of here with that bullshit.
Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit.
Dallas is America's team, huh? Laughable.
Steelers have fans that travel that are around the country, and they will make your stadium feel pressurized like put them in that fucking gap.
The amount of terrible towels that I saw on TV tonight was insane, insane, insane.
So we'll call it Hodges.
A home game away from home primetime game.
He did what he did, what he needed to do.
He didn't make mistakes.
There were a couple times where you could tell when we're up 21 Nothin.
Tomlin is, uh, accepting penalties to give that first in five dynamic where it gives Hodges a an open slate, too.
Hey, let's take that shot.
Let's try and get get dude into a rhythm.
You know what I mean? We're lucky that we didn't have to have Doc Hodges in a rhythm because the running game, the defense, which it was the game plan was working.
That's all we needed.
The game plan worked.
For once in the Tomlin era, a game plan went flawlessly, flawlessly.
What more? What more do you want? We have? We are coming on the bye week right now, right? Coming on the bye week.
You have to assume Rudolph, which is a funny, funny aspect on this whole debacle that the seers have at quarterback right now.
Sealers don't fly injured players to away games that's like their their pinnacle, right? How many times was Mason Rudolph Primetime Din on the sideline? Helping place makes you think right now I think this is Hodges job to lose.
It's his job to lose.
I don't think that you put in Rudolph after the body I love.
I love to hear a refute.
If anyone has one.
I just don't think the guy's on a hot streak.
Hey, the dude is cool is a fucking cucumber.
Evan and I talked about this on Wednesday show right? We showed the, um, the clip of overtime.
Um, who did we play last week? Ravens.
Yeah, it was raised right, right sitting on the bench, Ravens or however many it out.
I think they got what, One first down or whatever, but it's like his.
It's not even his first start.
He's thrown into this fucking game and said, Hey, win it! And Dude is sitting on the fucking sideline, Dick hanging out, just chewing on his chips like shit hit, Hanging out Cool is a fucking cucumber.
It's his job to lose, man.
It is his job to lose right now.
And I'm telling you, I'm telling you, Ben, if he's if if Ben thinks that he's coming back next year comfortable.
If Ben is coming back, Oh well, that it's just inappropriate.
If Ben thinks he's coming back next year comfortable he's in.
He's in for he's in for a run for his money in.
In my opinion, Mason Rudolph is no slouch.
Devlin Hodges is proving proving to be an NFL caliber quarterback, contrary to popular belief, with all that that guy has fucking been through.
So that being said, I want you guys to think about a few things before I get off here, and I'm I'm playing video games after this.
Talking about shit that I know about you is Devlin Hodges is a real deal.
I think he proved that tonight he can follow the game plan.
Cloner can get done.
The things that he needs to get done when he doesn't have his second and long third down back in Samuels, they're toe kind of grind out a little bit of help for him.
And this, Honestly, this one, this one is the most important one that I I can think of right now because this is gonna be the difference in the rest of the sealer season.
Is that Steelers defense? The Rio deal? Yes.
There. The fucking Rio deal.
Turnovers were rushing.
Three were rushing for when Russian three.
Looks like we're rushing for when Russian for it.
Looks like we're rushing five.
We're putting so many quarterbacks under duress.
We were doing that to Lamar Jackson, who had a fucking unbelievable day today.
If you give him the opportunity to run, he's gonna fucking run.
What do you do? Ah, 100 100 earned 50 rushing to 50 passing.
He beat a statistic that Michael Vick had.
That was, like, unfathomable.
How do you ask more than that from a quarterback? And we, for the most part, contained him.
This defense is the real fucking deal.
The real fucking deal.
I don't I don't have too much to say about anything more than that stable performance by the Steelers tonight, Doc Hodges.
Guys, Give us a follow on.
