All right, guys.
Give me just a minute.
Get everything shared and put out there and we will get going on a little bit of pre game for the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
All right, guys.
So thank you for joining me here on SportsCastrs.
My name is Jacob Harrison doing some play by play here.
So you're gonna get talk.
Started talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The New York Jets two Incredibly good defense is two teams that really struggled to run the ball with any real efficiency to the worst passing offenses in the league.
So I hope you bet the underling this game.
Ah, of course, there's the implications of left me on Belle playing his first game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
And he really hasn't had a great year averaging something like three and 1/2 yards per carry.
Uh, you know, if you remember pit, you know, Levy on Belle from his time with the Steelers.
It was I mean, it was feast or famine because of his patients.
And you enjoyed his watching his patients.
It's ah, it's a real beauty to watch.
Um, but you know, sometimes that patients gets him in trouble if you don't have a great offense.
Align, which the Steelers had in his entire career when he was in the black and gold.
So with that in mind, playing the Steelers defense, which is one of the best in the league, into defending the run, Uh, I think the game is really gonna come down to who protects the ball.
And I know that's really obvious statement, especially considering duct Hodges through not one, not two, not three, but four interceptions against the Buffalo Bills last week.
But the Bills defense was, ah, much more hungry to create turnovers than the Jets have been the Jets, or having a great defense for all intent and purposes.
Despite being ah, relatively poor team this year, most of that really stems from not having their quarterback for a good chunk of the beginning of the year.
Um, they haven't really turned.
You created a lot of turnovers.
Uh, when you look at the percentage of drives that end in turnovers for their defense is the Steelers ranked number one and the New York Jets ranks somewhere around 28 27 something like that.
So when it relates that that's something to keep an eye out for.
That I think will be a determining factor in this ballgame.
Give me just a second here.
Thanks, Blue Jay Don for joining the stream here, man, We're gonna The game will kick off soon.
We'll have the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers play by play.
My name is Jacob Harrison.
This is re sports on SportsCastr.
If you feel led to follow me on here, follow me on Twitter.
My personal account at Jacob Harrison to Jake's two ends.
You can follow re sports on Twitter as well.
And on Facebook at re Sports News Re Sports is a brand new sports site that I've created Ah, mostly for myself, just to kind of start building a brand covering all things Pittsburgh Steelers Alabama Crimson Tide.
That's my alma mater.
Uh, the NFL Draft as well as the top NFL and college football news.
Eso with the playoff implications for this game or as dire ah as the Buffalo Bills game was for the Steelers, they'd have the Steelers air.
You know, I hate this terminology are in control of their own destiny.
You can't control destiny. Destiny is destiny.
Ah, but they're in control of their own destiny.
They went out there in the playoffs.
Even if the Titans went out the sewers, would ho hold enough tiebreakers to best the Titans s? So you're gonna be watching that Titan's Saints game alongside this.
If you're a Steelers fan, just to see if the Titans lose that game and the Steelers win this one, it would be no.
I impossible for the Titans to get that that last playoff spot in the A F C.
The only one that hasn't been clinched yet.
So we may know the playoff scenario by the end of the week, but not really. It won't be official.
Uh, this dealers will play the Ravens on the Ravens win today against the Browns.
There's a strong possibility they rest Lamar Jackson and some of their other stars in that week.
17 match up, which is slightly disappointing his Ravens week.
You want to beat him when they're at their best, but ah that.
With that in mind, the Texans have already clinched the NFC South, so you don't know if they'll rest their starters next week is well, so playoff implications air a little riel this week.
Ah, you win this one, you're almost definitely in.
So again, let's talk about this, too.
I mean, it's not just Levy on Belle that the Steelers are playing for the first time since he was in black and gold.
It is also Hines Ward, who is a wide receivers coach and offensive assistant for the Jets.
Uh, you know, the Jets don't have the greatest receiving corps.
They've got Robbie Anderson.
Thank you, Blue Jay Don for the phone finger, man, you know that's not the greatest.
No attack in the NFL, certainly in the A F C.
But Jamison Crowder could be a threat on the shore.
Underneath Routes is a slot.
If he's healthy, if he's playing in this game, I'm not actually sure if he is, but you've also got Robbie Anderson take off the top of the defense.
So that means that the Jets can really spread things out and leave.
Leave Ian Bell open on those dump off routes that he's so famous for catching from Ben Roethlisberger.
Ah, the Steelers have been really good about not allowing running backs to make plays out of the backfield, so it'll be interesting to see how that matchup is performed as well.
I think this game really comes down to how the Jets offense plays against the CEO's defense and who generates the most turnovers throughout.
So as kickoff ISS set, Chris Paul's will kick off to get things started from New Jersey at MetLife Stadium, and this will go through the back of the end zone for a touchback.
Sam Darnold will come out to lead the New York Jets.
Donald's had a relatively good year, Uh, 17 touchdowns, 12 picks, 61% completion percentage.
Ah, just short of 3000 yards, 260 past yards game.
The last six games.
He's really come on, played like the Sam Darnold that we kind of expected 11 touchdowns of three picks last week against the Ravens, though, and the Ravens? They have a great defense.
It's not necessarily statistically as good as the Steelers, so we'll see if he can turned things around.
Donald, back to pass, gets it out to Belle right off the bat in that Devin Bush puts him out of balance after an eight yard gain, so there again.
The Steelers, one of the best teams in the league, at keeping running backs from wreaking havoc from the line of scrimmage in the passing game.
And they get the ball out to Levy on Bell on the very first point of the game to get him going.
Donald, now under center on second and three Jamison Crowder motions from the bottom to the top of the screen.
This one's handed off to Levy on Belle, who powers forward through Joe Hayden for a first down and a gain of about six.
And, again, they mention it on the broadcast.
The Steelers? They're traveling well to try to urge this team into the playoffs.
The Jets have nothing to play for at this point, except for pride and maybe to ruin a few other team's chance at the playoffs.
This one is out to Smith for a good gain.
Bring up second and short.
That was Joe Hayden on the coverage.
Second and two, now upcoming the Jets moving them, moving the ball relatively well to get this game started.
Bell is to the left of Darnold in the backfield, and this one goes out to Bella's well and Devin Bush is right on top of it and pushes him out of bounds for a two yard loss on the play.
Bring up third in five.
Welcome to the broadcast, man.
Appreciate you joining us.
Marcus Ford progression and it'll remain third and three.
Darnold slings it over the middle and make a Fitzpatrick was all over Robbie Anderson.
But they're gonna throw a flag, and that looks like it will be on makeup.
It's Patrick, one of two defensive player of the Year candidates that are on the Steelers defense and that will go against Make a Fitzpatrick and bring up an automatic first down.
And that's that's a rough situation for making to be in because you can tell he kind of was going for the ball and completely misjudged it.
Obviously, from that replay angle, um, it didn't look like he was intentionally trying to hit Robbie Anderson the way he did, but the results stands.
This one is a fumble by Jamison Crowder, but he does fall on it, and that will be a big loss, a lot going on on that play.
Donald didn't get off a real good pitch way out in front of Crowder, and he couldn't handle it.
But he did have the wherewithal to fall on its the second and 13 upcoming.
That's the first real negative play for the Jets.
Strong I formation give is to Belle, find space up the middle and picks up about six.
So Belle, finding early success against his former team on his 1st 4 touches.
So now, third and six from the 36 Donald gives to Belle Belle Stop right at the line to gain.
It's gonna be really close.
Isaiah Bugs, the former Crimson Tide defensive lineman, was in on the stop, and they're going to go ahead and snapped this one and pick up the first down and a flag because of the substitution infraction on the Steelers.
Smart play there from Adam Gays and the New York Jets offense and how things were getting a little scrappy.
There is Kelvin Beachum, another former Steeler was protecting LeVay on Belle at the bottom of the pile.
Still have to check the flag.
So the penalty grants more yardage than the play five yard penalty offsides on Chick alone.
Who was running off of the field I believe, or it was Isaiah Bugs.
They called the penalty on the wrong player.
So first and 10 now for the Jets, who've come out firing and using loving on Belle as their main weapon to get this offense going, Donald back pass gets it out to is tight end or excuse me, that's Ty Montgomery running back.
We're in still wearing 88 in a different green uniform and now second down.
Upcoming empty backfield for Donald.
Three to the top to the bottom, trying to spread out the Steelers defense who still has four on the line of scrimmage.
Pressure on Donald.
That one is incomplete.
Looking for Crowder, Devin Bush and zone coverage playing very well on Crowder There.
We've seen Bush have a little bit of struggles in his first season in pass defense, particularly against running backs and tight ends.
So it's a good thing to see him shut Crowder down there over the middle of the field.
39 Now from the 28 TJ, what with the pressure Darnold over the middle gets into Anderson.
Was he in touchdown jets? Robbie Anderson went over to Steelers defenders and brought it down in the back of the end zone.
It was over Hayden and Terrell Edmonds.
And, you know, Terrell Edmund's a first round pick and I'll be critical of Terrell Edmund's because I have been my entire his entire career.
Double coverage with Terrell Edmund's being one of the two is really single coverage for Joey.
Edmund's absolutely had had to have the over the top coverage there, and he didn't get it.
And that opened up the lane for Robbie Anderson, who went up and snagged it out of the air for the Jets. Touchdown.
Winky face 101 Thanks for joining the broadcast, man.
So four and 1/2 minute drive ends in a touchdown 28 yard touchdown from Donald to Anderson.
As we await the point after and the touchdown is confirmed by the guys in New York and thickets, extra point is good.
So seven nothing after the first drive of the game, Levian Bell was a big factor in that.
Robbie Anderson sealed it, and the Jets lead Steelersfirst offensive possession coming up.
So, guys, thanks for joining the broadcast.
My name is Jacob Harrison.
This is re sports on SportsCastr.
Feel free during the breaks Thio.
Use the live chat feature to talk sports, Steelers, whatever you want to talk about, Help these brakes go buy a little bit faster, guys.
So as we prepare for the Steelers offense to take the field, um, I was very critical.
Randy Fichtner the entire week on social media.
Anybody I could talk to that would listen about Steelers football.
Ah, and on re sports that figures playcalling against the bills was just so mind numbingly frustrating because James Connor was playing so well and yet was Conor's first game back from injury.
And you're trying to keep him healthy enough for the playoffs if you get in there.
But if you don't use Connor, you're not gonna get in the playoffs because you're gonna lose out.
Um, now, the Jets are one of the best run defending teams in the league.
But you still have to feed James Connor.
I think you can't continue.
You can't have duck.
Hodges put the ball up 38 times a game.
If you if you are in a situation in this game where you're gonna be asking doc Colleges to do that again, you're gonna end up putting Mason Rudolph back out there.
And if you do that, you really haven't done anything you haven't create.
You've stalled your mo mentum completely, which they've kind of already done.
I mean, there was so much momentum behind Duck Hodges being the guy that wouldn't kill us.
And now he's thrown the four interceptions last Sunday night.
So I think for this game to be a success for the Steelers, especially if the Jets offense is gonna produce the way it just did.
It scored relatively quickly.
Ah, in a four and 1/2 minute drive, you've got to You've got to establish a run game, allow your defense to rest, control the ball, control the clock and, ah, feed James Conner name of the game right here.
But power style runs really take it to the Jets defense.
11 place, 75 yards was that Dr Goes 23 yard touchdown to Robbie Anderson, and the kickoff will be received by care with White, undrafted free agent rookie out of Florida Atlantic, who's been a a bit of a bright spot at times, and he gets absolutely annihilated by daringly at the 20 yard line.
And as they show the replay.
It's really frustrating that Tremaine Edmonds has over the top, you know, help on that play, and Robbie Anderson's on that side and he doesn't he doesn't cheat back on the play at all.
It wasn't play action.
Robbie Anderson just beat him over the top.
Washington now in motion to the top of the formation.
Duck Hodges takes the shotgun snap that was high gives it to James Connor, who fights for a one yard loss to the outside.
Nothing was there, and it was swallowed up by Steve McLendon.
Get another former Steeler.
So not only did Duck Hodges even out his touchdown to interception ratio last week, but it also even don't the Steelers total touchdowns, passing touchdown to interception ratio that now sits at 17 to 17.
So it's been a very rough year for the Steelers throwing the ball.
Ah, young, receiving core in an injured veteran quarterback can do that to you.
Connor gets this one and picks up about six on the play inside Run and do it, just as I had asked, feeding Connor early, and he'll take a break on this third down in lieu of jail in Samuels.
You take a look at one of the best offensive lines in all of football.
Didn't do a particularly good job of defending duck Hodges last week from Saks, but that was from some very well schemed blitz.
Blitz is from, Ah, the Bills defense, particularly with that Tremaine Edmund's up.
The A gap, which it looks like the Jets might try to do here, is the two linebackers standing over Pouncey.
Duck gets it out to Deante Johnson, who picks up a first down and a little bit more.
So Duck stood in the face of that pressure.
The two linebackers that were over the age gap kind of faith like that we're going and then just kind of sat at the line of scrimmage, which really opened up the space for Dante Johnson in the slot on that little zig route.
Good throw, good patients.
Good awareness by Duck Hodges on his first throw of the game.
First down stealers, another type formation from the Steelers.
The two tight ends on the bottom.
Hodges in the pocket, gets it out to Vance McDonald on the sideline.
Who gets a gain of four over Jamal Adams.
Smart placement there by dark.
Jamal Adam is one of the best safeties in the NFL, but he's on the shorter side and you put it up top for for McDonald as you see on the broadcast.
John Smith on a 41 yard receiving touchdown from Ryan Tannehill, who's at a monster of a season since winning that starting job over Marcus Mariota has given the Titans of seven.
Nothing lead a very crucial game as this one plays out as well.
This gives to Connor, finds the edge and takes it up the sideline for a first down before getting popped out of bounds by Marcus May 15 yards for James Carter showing some Libyans Bell style patients at the top of the run.
And then so in the power was Marcus May by getting under James Connor.
Benny Snell, now in the backfield, gets the counter run, and he stuck for a one yard loss by Burgess.
So second and 11 coming up.
This is very banged up. Steelers.
I ain't excuse me.
Ah, New York Jets defense course there without CJ Mosley, he's had a injury filled season, and that's really stifled what they've been able to do on defense, but still, in spite of that, have added an incredible defense throughout the NFL season, said Duck Hodges, second and 11 gives it to Connor on the draw play, and he only picks up one.
Quentin Williams was the man on the stop.
The top pick for the New York Jets in this past year's NFL draft.
Alabama product roll side.
So third and 10 upcoming.
Well, there's a lot of Alabama boys in this game in there.
So Duck Hodges, now third and 10 got Jalen Samuels next to him.
Three receivers to the bottom of the screen, including Vance McDonald.
Pressure comes and he's intercepted yet again.
That's Basham, who went up and got it with his big frame over the middle.
I don't think Duck ever saw him, and Duck is currently once again doing just What was that? What Tom when said he expected him not to.
D'oh! That's killing us.
The game goes to gangrene.
Look, I love duck.
I really d'oh! He's been a breath of fresh air when he stepped in, but ah, he's not the answer, and I'm not sold on Mason Rudolph, either.
I don't think he's the answer.
You lose your job to an undrafted rookie because of your play.
I mean, that really kind of says a lot about everything concerning your performance.
So ah, not sure Ben's last year is gonna be this upcoming near this next season.
But you've got to find the replacement very soon.
So I would talk about Devlin Hodges and just how bad the Steelers passing game has been since.
I mean, since the beginning, the passing offense Don't get me wrong.
I like it wasn't even good when Ben Roethlisberger was still healthy.
Ah, that first game against the Patriots was just ugly from start to finish.
And you know Hodges is on pace to have the highest completion percentage by a rookie all time at 67.8%.
What you have to have a minimum 100 attempts toe earn that stat.
8% of his completions have been behind the line of scrimmage, and now that we're seeing him throw it downfield, two receivers who are not wide open his ball placement has not.
He's throwing interceptions every time he throws it more than 10 yards downfield.
It feels like especially in that Bills game, especially when he was trying to make something happen trying to make a play.
So the only player with his many completions as Hodges and a higher percentage behind the line this season is Mason Rudolph.
So it's been one rough outing after another.
Every time the Steelers drop back to pass and this is a deep one and it's gonna be in her snow, Joe hadn't dropped it.
Sam Darnold faced immense pressure.
Joe hadn't got under it, but as he was tackled, he lost possession of the ball.
Joe Hayden hasn't dropped many this season.
Heads up play there by Smith as that one was launched into double coverage, and now Belle takes it to the outside, and he's dragged down by Hargrave and Devin Bush after a gain of about three.
And you've got a Z showed the replay here.
You've got to be aware of those linebackers that drop back like that.
You play, you frighten us against that every week, every day in practice, you see zone blitzes like that.
So you've got to be aware when these guys drop back in the coverage.
Thio compensate for a Blitzer as Donald is pressured on that one.
He dumps it off to his running back, and he's dropped before he's able to pick up a first down.
So that will bring up the 1st 4th down of the game.
That's such a mike Tom unquote haven't contemplated failure, so Edwards will put this one away on fourth and two.
Unless the Jets get something trickery up their sleeve, they don't.
This is a good point.
Bounces at the 14 before it's down.
They want to down it at the 11.
I don't know where he got that idea, but, ah, nevertheless, they'll take a break. And so a lot.
Feel free to use the chat.
My name is Jacob Harrison.
This is re sports on SportsCastr.
You feel free to follow me on Twitter at my personal account at Jacob Harrison to Jay's and two ends and get all your latest Steelers News.
Alabama Crimson Tide News on re sports At re Sports news on Twitter.
I will, of course, be calling the Baltimore Ravens game next week.
I will be calling the Crimson Tide versus the Michigan Wolverines and the Citrus Bowl I'll pick out a few other bowls next week, huh? I'm not I'm not a fan of the Ah, the lower level bowls with these six lost five lost teams that we saw, you know, this past weekend.
So I'll pick out a few bowl games next weekend.
Ah, some of the New York, you know, as the New York Six Bowls kind of arrival.
I'll get into that and I'll call some of those play.
We'll play as well.
So the Steelers will get another chance here offensively.
And I don't know what it's gonna take to turn to Mason.
Ah, I think certainly throws another interception here.
You gotta just look at it and say his his his confidence is completely shot.
His ability to throw accurately is completely shot.
And ah, I kind of just say, you know, if you want a football career might be in the XFL against lesser competition on, and I know that's a very harsh way of putting it.
Ah, but I've seen Maur from Mason Rudolph to say that he can play in this league, probably more likely as a backup.
I'm not saying like I said earlier He's not the future anymore than Duck Hodges is.
Ah, but you've got to give your offense the ability to protect the ball.
Ah, and that's what you turned to Mason.
You turn to duck Hodges and said that it was because he wouldn't kill us.
Well, Mason Rudolph wasn't necessarily killing you.
Ah, with turn overs, he was killing you because he couldn't move the ball.
So we'll see what happens.
Moving forward is Benny Snugs to carry on this play.
Ah, And now this.
The Jets defense is gonna really crack down on the running game.
Now, they've got some confidence that the Steelers offense can't get anything going.
One yard gain on that rush.
Connor back in the game and they'll shift out of the I formation into a shotgun with Connor to is right.
Duck takes the snap.
He'll have some pressure steps up into it and can't create any space for himself and his drug down for the sack.
Multiple jets in the area, including Marcus May Patoski they brought five spied him with linebacker as well as Marcus Mayor would appear.
May read the play beautifully and pursued to duck with abandoned third and 14 now, forcing the Steelers and throw the ball The best thing the Jets can do in this ball game, Doc drops back only four on the pressure and this one short to McDonald.
He'll pick up a good game, but he'll fall after a gain of 10 and that will bring up fourth and four.
And that's where the sack kills you.
You get a good play.
You usually you pick up tenure, at least picked up a first gamble.
When you get sacked, that's that.
You've got to be able to throw the ball more than 10 yards downfield in that situation.
And duck, Hodges has proven he can't reliably do that.
So Jordan Perry will punt this one from his own nine after his steps.
This one has brought in, and he's got some space off the far sideline and brings it up to the 40.
That was Braxton Barrios on the return, making a few guys Ms and a good return of about 18 Jets take over on offense.
So I sent it up the outside of the game that ah sax, not *** turnovers will be the deciding factor in this game.
So far, the Jets lead with one.
The Steelers have yet to get one.
Joe Hayden had one in his grasp, but ah, lost control of it on that first deep pass of the previous drive by the Jets.
So Ah, look for TJ.
What? Probably to step up on this drive.
Ah, he created pressure on one play, but you really haven't heard his name yet.
Ah, these are the kind of situations where TJ what's touched to ramp it up and make a play for his defense for his team.
Um, that last drive by the Steelers gasman, I ain't you give it to Benny Smell on the first play and he doesn't get anything.
You bring in Connor on the next.
You get sacked when the Jets bring, like six or seven on that play.
And it was it you no good on duck.
He stepped up in the pocket.
He tried to keep his eyes downfield, but that Marcus made came and put me to play.
And there's not much you can do when good defensive players make great plays.
Um, but then afterwards, the Jets play the deep coverage, and duck just doesn't he doesn't have the arm.
Like I don't think a lot of people understand this.
Ah, especially you.
No more casual Twitter maniac Steeler fans.
Uh, duck does not have a strong arm, and that's why you're seeing him make the He's got a very accurate arm close to the line of scrimmage.
And I I know I'm saying, like, kind of obvious things, but there's a reason you're seeing him dump these balls off, uh, only throwing to slot receivers, only throwing the tight ends on very short routes on Lee throwing two running backs.
Things of this nature.
What do you do? Even with his injury, only has, like, 30 catches on the season because nobody can seem to throw it downfield.
Now, there's been times we've seen.
Of course, James Washington gets down field in one on one coverage, and he's made some plays.
He's had a great season.
All things considered, Uh, but even still, Washington is not the biggest guy, so if he he's gotta have the advantage of one on one, you can't just throw up a jump ball.
So, uh, it's been a very difficult going for the Steelers offensively, Everytime they drop back to pass.
This one is given a bell who shows his patients again and picks up eight.
Love. Ian Bell has such acceleration.
Yeah, you see him hopping around behind the line of scrimmage, and then the next thing you know, he's eight yards downfield making a big play.
What? So second and two, now two runners in the backfield with Sam Darnold, including Levy on Belle Belle, drops out past.
This one is short over the middle for Robbie Anderson, who doesn't put a lot of effort into it was covered well by Stephen Nelson.
Go down as a drop third in two a minute, 18 to go in the first quarter.
So Montgomery motions up to a slot receiver is Belle moves back to the running back position.
That's one still handed off to Montgomery of Picks up a first down, takes a hard shot from Mark Baron before he stood up at the 45 well designed play by Adam Gates and the Jets offense, and that's a great shot right there.
Cam Heyward had his hand on that ball.
The former wide receiver did a good job of holding onto it in that spot so less than a minute to go in the 1st 1st down at the 44 pistol formation, Montgomery is the back.
It's given the Montgomery T.
Watt in the backfield met by the Bud Dupri at the line of scrimmage.
There's T J Water, one of those big plays, and it brings up a big second and Tan.
Now it's something you see.
What do so often it's run that back line of the offense.
A line and get to the runner at the line of scrimmage is not many at the edge position that do it quite like TJ want in that situation.
This is a bubble screen out the Jamison Crowder, who picks up a good gain of about seven before he's tripped up by Devin Bush.
And that will end the first quarter.
The Jets leads seven. Nothing.
One turnover by the Steelers.
That's the difference in the game.
All right, guys, so thanks for joining me here.
This is the end of the first quarter, where the Jets are currently leading the Steelers Steelers trying to fight for that last playoff position.
I mean, offensively, I know most fans, they're gonna want to see the Titans get into the playoffs.
They probably deserved it more with the way they're much more complete came honestly.
Ah, of course, I wouldn't be a step that the Steelers find a way into the playoffs.
Ah, but it is gonna be a difficult road.
Uh, even if they do get into to make something of that run.
Ah, the quarterback play is just not there.
I'm not sure things would be different with Ben, To be honest, the way he was looking, I'm not sure if that injury actually cooked up before the season started, but, ah, it's been rough.
You have one sending successful season in a long time and, you know, and you feel like the world is crumbling as a Steelers fan, which is funny because as ah, Alabama fan, obviously, uh, you know, we go 10 and two and the whole world has fallen down so very spoiled with success.
Am I as a sports fan? But hey, since it's the end of the first quarter, remind you guys again, uh, you can follow me on Twitter at Jacob Harrison to Jay's two ends, you can follow re sports news That's Ah, a new website by me that cover the Pittsburgh Steelers Alabama Crimson Tide, the NFL draft top, and it fell in college football news.
Follow that on Twitter.
At re sports news as well as on Facebook.
You give me follow.
Here is well, to make sure you're charming in on all of my streams.
Mostly play by play.
All have ah, podcast coming up.
Uh, probably after the NFL season ends.
Um, so, yeah, I'm not I'm not feeling the Steelers in this game.
So far, all the momentum is with the Jets, and even they are not doing the whole heck of a lot.
But their offense seems much more confident in its abilities.
Then the Steelers do.
Um, yeah, I'm not feeling good about it.
Third and two now, upcoming from the 36 this one is handed off to Levy on Belle who gets stuffed at the line of scrimmage.
Really? One of the first times they've stopped Levy on Belle all day.
Jim Hayward and Tyson a Lulu were there to meet him.
So it looks like the Jets will kick a field goal in this one is gonna be a long one.
54 yarder, and it is good, just barely reaching over the crossbar.
So now the Jets lead is extended to 10.
So the Steelers defense holds.
But Thicken still takes advantage of the field position.
Well, that's disheartening.
Uh, so in the broadcast, I just said that Jean Cerrito, or was looking at the previous interception by Joe Hayden and that it should have enrolled a completion because he maintained position all the way to the ground.
Ah, before the ground caused him to drop the ball, I guess, um, on I'm not sure I see that, even as even as a bias fan, I'm not sure I see the rationale for how Joe Hayden should have been given possession on that play.
Surviving the ground.
Is it terminology used in defining a catch anymore? But I feel like if you don't catch it with your first contact to the ground, it's kind of obvious he didn't maintain possession.
I don't know that play.
It doesn't matter Anyway.
The Steelers forced the point, got the ball in that kind of territory anyway and proceeded to throw an interception.
So Duck Hodges is back out there.
Zach banners in the game as well as the young Caine Off Banner is flanked by the tight end Nick Van et It's when it's fake to Connor.
He's looking over the middle for Nick Van Et picks up the first down ban it, piling through Jets defenders and picking up the first down a bit extra gain of about 16 on the play for the young tight end who came over from the Seahawks in a trade earlier in the season and a good throw by Duck Hodges, who had quitted Williams bearing down on him.
Quentin got free rightness face, and he still got it to his tight end, who powered through that defense of back before being taken down by Jamal Adams.
That catch gives Nick Van at 100 yards plus on the season on just his 12th cash.
Connor finds open space first down, brought down by May and Steelers offenses.
Rolling a little bit here just gets away from Cornyn, Williams and another Jets defender.
And because all the Jets were at the line of scrimmage except for the defensive backs, Easy first down run for James Connor.
Once you got past the line of attack five rushes, now 33 yards.
Connor, already outpacing himself from last week, give the corner once again.
This time he's met at the line of scrimmage by three Jets defenders.
So now the Steelers, behind the chains, once again, second and 11 as we check in on other games, Miami leads Cincinnati 14.
Cincinnati, Uh, well on their way to securing the number one overall pick and in turn, Ellis, you Heisman winning quarterback, Joe Burrow and the Titans lead the New Orleans Saints 14.
And nothing as well.
This one is taken out to James Washington, who has brought down in an ugly way.
He's he's moved both of his legs.
But you could tell that hurt immensely, definitely a horse collar tackle.
And the very reason it was outlawed is just a CZ.
You saw there just an ugly play.
And, you know, as soon as we get juju back, who has had zero impact on this game, by the way, uh, James Washington, now injured on the play, you see anything that really twisted up.
He did reach for that left hamstring area, so if we will learn more about Washington soon from the broadcast and beyonc? Johnson will take over a larger role in the offense, and you'll hope to see Juju Smith Schuester do a little bit more as well.
This one out to Dion came.
Makes a man miss, and he's gotta fight through Some traffic.
Only had two blockers out in front of them and all host of Jets, but he makes do and picks up about three.
It's a second in six now balanced offensive play calling eight plays a piece for pass and run.
This one is play faked to Samuels before Dion Deante Johnson is absolutely dropped on that screenplay or excuse me, a slant play.
Still a heck of a play for him to hold on to it.
We'll be down to the 20 yard line.
Bring up third and three for the Steelers.
All right, you see juju and a bunch formation at the top of the bunch on the bottom of the screen.
Duck Hodges steps up in the pocket, intercepted again.
Marcus may try to get it.
The Jalen Samuels a duck.
Hodges just threw his eighth interception of the season.
I think we're on the fast track to seeing Mason Rudolph back in the game for the Steelers because now you Fichtner has called a good play a good game to this point.
I've seen nothing wrong.
He's he's called things that have made sense for him.
Ah, and Duck just is not getting it done at all.
Yeah, I mean, no, no real way.
Like I said, he just doesn't have the arm strength.
And he's That's a 20.
What 28 yard throw was that? Trying to rainbow it over to a running back? Who's on the shorter side? I get that we don't Steelers don't have very tall pass catchers outside this height and position, but in that situation, you gotta put it on the back pile on and he doesn't.
He puts it in the middle of the end zone on that sideline, and Marcus May, who's a very good safety, gets overshadowed a lot by Jamal Adams is still very, very good player on the back end.
Comes up with the easy interception, and and that's that's now two in the first half.
Um, I'd love to see how many interceptions he's thrown on.
He's on his last view attempts because those last 18 attempts in that Bills game.
We're just ugliness throughout, and now Duck has thrown two in.
This game hasn't even put on that many passes.
So I think I'd be very shocked if Mason Rudolph doesn't come out as a quarterback on the next drive.
I mean, you hate the flip flop.
I'm not a fan of football thing, either, but ah, Mason Rudolph warming up on the sidelines.
So, yeah, Mason will be the quarterback when they return.
And look, I was a fan of Mason Rudolph When he stepped in.
I wanted to see what he could do.
But this is his chance for redemption as well as Bell carries this one for a gain of two before he's brought down.
I mean, just that triple coverage in all reality.
I mean, that's it's unacceptable, is what it is.
And there's not much ****ysis you can put into granted, like you have to understand the kid.
He threw the ball aton of times at Sanford, that spread offense, but that was the F.
C s level, and he's an undrafted free agent rookie for a reason.
Second and seven for the Jets feels the pressure from T J.
What he slips away from.
It rolls out to his right and nearly intercepted after it bounced off the hand of Jamison Crowder.
I don't think anybody wears their helmet as long as Mason Rudolph does.
There's some ****ysis on Mason Rudolph, third in seven now for the Jets.
Donald back to pass, steps up and finds a man, but he's inaccurate with the past.
Looks like he threw it into the sun and James our Jamison Crowder lost track of the ball so forth and seven, they can't take advantage of the interception.
Edwards will come out to point to Dion, say Johnson.
Oh, what a pounce that have pushed for Edwards.
Well, if Roberts kicked the ball is to be down where he touched it.
Done like that will be the case, though.
Mason Rudolph Santa next door.
All offensive coordinator.
Randy Fichtner there.
And he? No, it bounced off of Johnny Houlton, so that will be out where it went out of bounds.
Mason Rudolph takes over a quarterback for the Steelers when the broadcast returns.
All right, so I'm just checking in on my fantasy team because I'm in my championship game in my dynasty league, and Drew Brees is not helping me out.
So, uh, if you've had a great fantasy season, let me know in the chat and ah, make me feel worse about that because so be the second year on the road.
Feels like that.
I lose to this guy the championship and his fourth straight season winning our league.
So it's rough going, man.
It's a rough go on.
So now still, the offense can't really change now that Mason Rudolph is coming into the game.
Ah, and I know that sounds like a kind of a crazy thing to say, but and even more so for me to admit that Fichtner hasn't called a bad game because there's been very few games this year where that has been the case.
Uh, if they're not college football wide open, then he's not gonna complete the past, and that's why he throws inside the line to gain so often.
So now that Rudolph comes out, I think you can still run your offense.
Ah, especially if James Washington is fit to come back into the ball game.
Uh, but here's the thing, especially with Rudolph.
Test them deep seriously like find a guy that's in one on one coverage.
Don't don't even think about going near Jamal Adams, but test, um, deep.
Maybe you can get a completion and help root off with his confidence as well, because that was a big factor in his benching is, well, well lost.
A three on the play as Copeland came into stuff.
As you see this next gen stats.
That's just that's mind boggling.
Rudolph hasn't had that sort of success throwing to James Washington.
250 yards, two touchdowns, two picks When throwing games.
Washington, 20 plus yards downfield killed three of seven other receivers.
Rudolph back to pass his 1st 1 since the Bengals game, and it's behind the onstage Johnson and dropped.
So now Washington is not the only dreams that is out of the game for the Steelers.
James Connor is on the sideline on the bike as well, so we won't even see him for this dr either.
He was out of the previous drive as well, and ah, things just keep getting worse for the Steelers.
Third and 12 3 seconds on the play clock.
Rudolph in the pockets.
Gonna feel some pressure, gets it out, still gets it to his receiver.
That's James Washington, who has returned to the field, gained a 13 and, boy, he's fighting through it.
You could still see the wincing pain on the face and see.
And that's the difference between Rudolph and Hodges is the arm strength.
Rudolph couldn't even get all the way through that throw because of his offensive linemen right in his face, and he still delivers the ball hi into a spot where only his receiver can get it for the first down.
He just has to continue consistently show that he could be the man first and 10.
Rudolph gets it to Deante Johnson, who finds a little bit of space and is down after a gain of four, and the broadcast is reported that it's a thigh injury for James Connor.
It is not his shoulder.
So no setbacks with the shoulder second in six and David Castro was quick out of his pool on that play, probably for the best, because marquees palace, he airmailed that snap.
Not often you get felonies on David to Castro, but there was ever a time to have one.
Not sure what's going on with marquees.
You know, Mike Tomlin really brushed off a question about it last week after the game, saying, Ben could handle those.
I don't remember this many bad snaps when Ben was under center.
This one's clean.
It goes to Rudolph, who juggles it, and it was nearly picked off by Copeland.
MacDonald was in double coverage and couldn't bring it.
And cleanly, as we see the Browns have taken the lead against the Ravens.
Don't count out the Brown.
He's just yet trying to make it difficult on the Browns.
Well, say, as the Steelers fan, You probably want the Ravens to find a way to win that game.
So they go ahead and clinch everything they're looking to clinch and so they can rest their starters next week.
You have the Steelers a little help getting into the playoffs, make some space for himself, gets brought down by Jamal Adams, and he'll be stopped well short of the first down.
Rudolph, not a very athletic quarterback.
You can move in the pocket, and that's another frustrating thing that we saw for Mason.
Rudolph Ah as the season progressed especially after he took that hit from Earl Thomas in the first.
Ravensgame is he showed tremendous progress pocket awareness in the in the preseason, and he even continued to show it kind up until that Ravens game.
So there's There's been this speculation that Rudolph hasn't been the same since he got knocked out and that, you know, that's kind of made him timid and made him, you know, feel the ghosts around him and everything to that nature.
So hopefully he's had the time to recover from that, to build his confidence, maybe even get a little anger built up, that he lost his job and make something happen.
Uh, in this ballgame, because so far there's been nothing for the Steelers offense.
5 58 to go in the second quarter of the Jets lead 10.
Nothing over the Steelers.
And as we look at the stats so far in this ball game, uh, Sam Darnold play marginally well, seven of 12 51 yards.
The touchdown, Of course, Mr Robbie Anderson.
That's his only catch a game.
Ah, Levy on Belle has been really well up to this point.
Eight cares 40 yards.
Uh, a five yard average.
He came into the game averaging three and 1/2 or so yards a game or carry.
So you know, particularly playing against the Steelers defense.
He's really taken advantage of his patient running style.
Ah, and found those gaps for himself.
He hasn't been in as patient as we used to see him behind the Steelers, often of line.
You can't really afford to do that.
Watt, but new pre They really close, uh, the edges down there to the best EJ defenders in the league today the way they played this season, Uh, especially in tandem when they're working together.
So as as the game progresses, the Steelers, really And truly, I don't think I can afford another turnover.
Um, in this ball game, especially if the Steelers offense isn't able to force any you're not gonna get.
See? Here's the thing is you're not gonna get the forced fumbles off of lovey on Belle.
Hey, doesn't form of the ball, period doesn't.
So you've got to take advantage is as the Steelers defense take advantage every time time Montgomerie gets the ball.
If you get the Sam Darnold, which they haven't done yet.
They lead the league tied with the Carolina Panthers in sacks.
Um, they haven't gotten to the quarterback yet at all.
Uh, they'd gotten close a few times to Joe.
What gotta God is, you know, arms wrapped around a leg of Sam Darnold.
But he was able to get away on that last drive.
So as far as all that goes, I said at the beginning of the game, turnover sacks.
That's what's gonna decide the game.
And so far, the Jets are winning in both regards.
So, second, half kind of coming up, Steelers defense has to get a stop here.
Can't allow any more points in this first half, especially if the Steelers on their next possession should they get one, aren't able to put up points as well.
So Donald had an incredible first drive, you know, as I went through a stat seven and 12.
But five of those complacence came on the very first drive of the game, So this one has given to Belle, who picks up three.
Or that's Powell.
Bilal Powell used to be the feature back of this Jets offense now kind of relegated to the third man of the group.
No second and seven now given to Bell this time, and Heyward makes him turn direction.
And but Dupri will bring him down at the 31 yard line for a huge loss on the play, Bell tried to make something out of nothing and only made it worse for himself.
A huge loss on a play.
Cam Heyward was given the edge responsibility on that place.
What went inside of him and Bud Dupri played his job very well, preventing the cutback incredible play by the Steelers defense to take advantage of that situation.
Third and 18 now in the past, rushers compendious years back and head for Donald Donald, what with the spin move, and this is a screen down to Levy on Belle, who's got a little bit of space and he'll pick up a good chunk of yardage.
But he is a about five or six yards short of the first down.
So now, as this next part will take place under four minutes to go in the half steals offense is given one more chance to put points on the board in this half.
Thanks to that play made by Cam Heyward and Bud Dupri.
Pawn is off Good one.
It's fielded by Deante at about the 17 and he's got the edge down past the 40 and he's taken out of bounds at the 45 by Edwards.
There is a flag on the play, however.
What? And that's usually how it goes.
Jordan Dangerfield is called for holding on the play, so now is your real opportunity to see what Mason Rudolph is made of throwing the ball.
Uh, you kind of just had to put it up there and live and die.
You know, on this drive, you know, you still have the second half to kind of get something going, but you've got to put points on the board.
You've got to create momentum and confidence for this offense because it feels like they've just got nothing going for themselves.
Uh, so throw the ball a lot on this drive, create some small passes, you know, Thio early in the drive.
So short passes subscription, some dump offs to kind of bring the defense to you and then send it over the top.
You've got James Washington still in the game, juju yet to make an impact on this game.
Try to force feed him the ball a little bit, you know, if he's not open, of course, you know you got to do what you got to do.
But try to get your playmakers involved with.
White is the running back, as this one is taken from the 14 and it's given the care of White and he's down after a gain of five.
You said hard by a couple of Jets defenders as CBS proper cast makes me a little thes interceptions.
Just mistakes that you would expect from a rookie with the experience that duck Hodges has in the NFL and drafted out of Sanford.
Now the Oklahoma State quarterback is in the game for the Steelers.
As a result, that one that James Washington, his former roommate for the Cowboys first and Steelers under three to go in the half.
Confident, powerful throw.
Just the arm strength spiral, the willingness to throw it over the middle for all of what Mason Rudolph could not do.
And the offense and a lot of ways has cut off its here despite its face in so many ways because of the play calling.
Rudolph does have the tools, the skills to move the ball when given the right opportunities.
That one's given the care with White.
After a gain of two, he's brought down by Burgess.
It's a second down.
20 seconds to go until the two minute warning.
See if the Steelers can get one more playoff, and as they begin their huddle with eight seconds, it doesn't looks like they will.
So the two minute warning upcoming.
They've got about 60 some yards to go to find a way into the end zone and put their first points of the game on the board.
All right, guys.
Thanks for joining me on, SportsCastr.
My name is Jacob Harrison.
This is three sports on SportsCastr.
You ah, are enjoying the stream.
Just go ahead and give me a follow.
You can catch me on all of my play by streams, particularly for Steelers broadcast in the Alabama Crimson Tide championship games.
In that nature, a cz Well, one a let you guys know, too, before I forget that at halftime, this dream will end.
Uh, I'll take a break during halftime and I will be back.
So for the second half Even if this game starts to get out of hand, I'll be here until the end.
So sorry eso When the halftime does arrive, just be aware the stream will end and I'll be back about five minutes before the second half kicks off.
Steelers will get the ball to start the first.
The second half is well, so it's very imperative, you know, you always.
Of course you want to get points on every drive, but this is a very important Dr to get points.
You score on this drive, you score on the first drive of the second half and suddenly it's a ball game.
You could even be leading in that situation.
So this is what the best opportunity to see what makes him Rudolph is made of again.
You win this game and you're really in the driver seat to go to the playoffs, so you got to see if Mason Rudolph can do it.
You can't stumble into the playoffs and not really know what your quarterback situation is or feel confident in who he is.
Rudolph out to Deante Johnson on the comeback route, completed for an 11 yard gain and a first down If that's the one refreshing thing to see from Mason, Rudolph is the confidence in the arm strength.
Every throw that he's had has had full confidence behind.
It has been accurate, barring the very 1st 1 to Deante Johnson. That was short.
Ah, and has had a lot of power behind it.
Rudolph in the pocket now feel some pressure but dumps it off to jail in Samuels, who gets up ended and only picks up to taking it to the 43 yard line.
He took a clean shot to the ribs there, too, and the Steelers will call their first time out.
Samuels is okay, but that was just a gain of one.
So now second and nine upcoming for Mason Rudolph in the Steelers offense.
They're getting a real first real drive of the game.
90 total yards of offense in the second quarter to the Jets just seven.
All those yards have not resulted in points yet, however, Jayla Adams was there on the pressure.
Samuels takes it up the sideline and is out of bounds at the 25 off the screen pass.
He had a lot of space out in front of him and took advantage.
And that's what you do.
You, you finally draw him in.
You make him feel like they can get that sack.
They bring the safety blitz.
Everything was drawn up well, there.
They brought a lot of guys on the boy.
It's actually and it beat him to perfection 27 yards on the play, and now they sit at the 30 yard line first and 10 a minute, 36 to go in the half, Rudolph and that one skips off the hands of Juju Smith, Schuster's first target of the game, and he can't haul it in been a frustrating season for Juju, who has not played well, is the number one receiver faced injuries as well.
Battled a knee injury just to play in this game.
But you got to be harsh sometimes nothing wrong with his hands, and ah should have brought that one in second and 10.
Now they bring a bit of the blitz and it gets too rude off any set.
Hewitt gets back there for the sack.
He came on a delayed blitz, came right at the middle, rushed right past the offensive line, and I don't.
Hey, David to Castro is one of the best in the game, but I don't know how he missed what was going on there.
So a big sack there for the Jets.
That's the second sack of the game.
Both of them go for the Jets, both of them on blitz plays.
That worked out to perfection for the guys in Green, third and 19.
Now coming up and the longest play of the game was a 27 yarder, and there hadn't been much close toe close to that.
So now we're facing another blitz.
This one goes out and is brought in by James Washington at the 31 yard line.
Chris Boswell comes out to kick this one away.
Gonna be a 48 yard field goal for Boswell.
So, again, still, I mean, you suffer the sack and it really kills the drive, but you stay in field goal position and you'll still have the first possession of the second half.
This one is right down the middle for Boswell.
It plays the wind direction verywell.
Boswell having a great rebound season after having a real drug, her over of a go of it last year, so now tend to free the Steelers finally get on the board a minute, 18 Steelers defense holds and the Steelers have a chance.
One more reminder.
When halftime reaches, I will end this stream and take a break, and I will bring up another stream about five minutes before the second half begins.
This is J comparison on re Sports Re Sports news on Twitter.
Follow me on Twitter at Jacob Harrison to Jay's two Ends.
You follow me here on SportsCastr as well.
Keep up with all of my play by play calls and upcoming podcasts that will come after the football seasons and as Boswell gets this one away and it will be returned is a short kick.
It was returned from the 14.
That's Montgomery, who's brought down by Trey Edmunds, and there's a flag on the play and that will be holding on the Jets.
So expect them to just run out the clock here and take their lead into the half Ms is.
You look at Hines Ward there on the sideline wearing rain, and it doesn't look good on him to be honest.
1000 career receptions and the black and gold looked a lot a lot better.
So they're in a pistol formation.
They do drop back to pass.
This one is complete to Anderson.
That's his second catch of the game.
Brings up second and eight a minute to go in the game.
So they're gonna try to put something together on this drive.
They've got all three of their timeouts.
I want to see what their kids are made of before the season ends.
Darnold all day to pass, gets it out to his man that Smith on the near side line.
He picks up the first down and a gain of about eight and make a Fitzpatrick jogging a little gingerly back onto the field.
Looks like he'll be alright, though.
That was the 1st 1st down of this quarter for the Jets.
So now first and 10 from the 34.
What do pre put the pressure on him? But this one is still completed out to Crowder.
Way too soft coverage from the Steelers there gave up way too much.
Nobody on the middle coverage of that defense was even 10 yard shallow.
I mean, that was that was easy money for Jamison Crowder to sit under that zone and pick up the first down.
And there goes my stream. Of course.
Gotta love the Internet. Guys, give me just a second.
Thanks for sticking with me on that play. T. J.
Watt got back to San Donald, got the sack, the fumble and the recovery.
I told you, TJ, what comes up big in these situations for the Steelers? 28 seconds to go and they've got a chance.
They've got one time out.
The ball sits in the 41 yard line.
So that's where you that's what you take.
The gamble, you say.
Well, we've got a good offense.
We feel like we've played very well.
Up until this point, the Jets did thought that they could move the ball and they did very well.
But TJ, what finally got to the backfield, got his first sack of the game and created the game's first turnover for the black and gold. This is a draw.
Play to Samuels, who takes it down to the 33 before he's dropped, and that will put them in realistic field goal position for Chris Boswell and T J.
What? I mean, you don't even have to mention his brother anymore.
He's been one of the best defensive players in all of football this year.
You saw how many times he did it in open field last week by constantly going for the ball.
He's so aware of trying to make turnovers.
For the defense.
He's the are probably the biggest reason the defense has such a headhunting mentality for creating turnovers, and that is up also his 14th sack of the season.
Rudolph dumps it off to jail in Samuel, who has toe catching three or four times.
Then a Jets defender had closed on him, forced him out of bounds to game.
Just one Steelers.
No more time outs.
So it's kind of a dangerous play right there.
Good on Samuels to make sure that he got out of bounds, though 14 seconds third and three bows at 32 on the four hash.
Excuse me, the 34 Rudolph in the pocket slings it deep too far for James Washington.
There might be a hold on bullet pass interference on the Jets, and the Steelers will get one play.
Looks like it should be inside the 20 so it's illegal contact, so it will be an automatic first down and just a gain of, well, I started talking before the penalty was announced.
Ah, so I think that the five yard penalty correct.
So that will be an automatic first down.
And it won't give the Steelers the position that they had hoped for, But it was because the contact became came before the ball was in the air, said no pass interference.
But it will still get the Steelers one more shot to the end zone, which the Jets will undoubtedly be prepared for this time from the 29.
So as long as you protect Rudolph, you get this one off.
Quick goes up, comes down.
You have one more shot of the end zone and can still get a field goal should you be unsuccessful to the end zone.
Rudolph slings it deep to the far sideline, and he's got Deante Johnson for a touchdown.
What a masterful couple of tribes from Mason Rudolph it Randy pick.
They're all the problems.
Go to Randy Fichtner, who is called a masterful game.
Up until this point, just the two interceptions from duck.
Hodges really hurt the Steelers, but the Steelers are now in position to tie the game up just before halftime.
What a blessing.
And the love that the Steelers offense alive gives Mason Rudolph very reminiscent when Rudolph first took over for the injured Ben Roethlisberger.
And Boswell's extra point is, of course, good.
Four seconds to go before halftime.
But the Steelers have tied it up at 10 three, huh? And he, as the broadcast continues to show.
What you can't be more appreciative as an offense than to get those kind of turnovers that put your offense in a position toe.
Make an impact play in the game.
So since Mason Rudolph took over nothing but points field goal in the first drive that went 10 plays, 55 yards and then the touchdown on one that went three for 41 you got to be happy for Mason Rudolph.
You lost his job because the offense wouldn't move.
A lot of people, you know, took that as because he wasn't protecting the ball.
No, that wasn't really the case.
He just couldn't get the offense to move well against this Jets defense which is played very well for most of the season.
Despite injuries to both sides of the ball.
Mason Rule just tied the game up 10 to 10 at halftime.
All right, guys, thanks for sticking with me as the Steelers have tied the game up.
It's been a good game there in the late in the second half.
I will take a break here for halftime and I will be back about five minutes before half time or the second half starts.
Get a few things to situated tryto fix that stream.
Gotta love the Internet, man.
But thanks for sticking with me.
I'm Jacob Harrison, three sports on SportsCastr, and I hit the follow button.
If you need Thio to make sure that you're here for the second half, strength.
