The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Rookie DB Ryan Watts, DL DeMarvin Leal Jump, OTA Comments & More

May 24, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 136 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers signing RB LeMich Perine on Thursday and why the team has recently added several new running backs to their offseason roster. The Steelers first week of 2024 OTAs wrapped up on Thursday and with that, Alex and I recap more notable things to come out of the first several practices. We talk about where rookie DB Ryan Watts is playing in the defense early in OTAs and if he has a future at safety. We also talk about a few things that third-year DL DeMarvin Leal had to say on Thursday and if he can make a huge jump in 2024. Steelers third-year WR Calvin Austin III had some interesting comments about the offense on Thursday and we discuss those from a personnel usage standpoint. We also talk a little about stats projections for QB Russell Wilson in 2024. Will and should the Steelers add to their wide receiver room moving forward? Alex and I look at that position group as it sits right now from a cash spending standpoint and go over the short list of candidates the Steelers might could pursue via a trade after June 1. We also talk a little about new Steelers OLB Jeremiah Moon in this show on the heels of a Thursday OTA report on how he looks early in OTAs. Alex and I review the contract extensions that S Troy Polamalu and TE Heath Miller signed in March of 2014 and how the structure of those might be something that the Steelers stick close to when it comes to a possible new deal for veteran DT Cameron Heyward. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 105-minute episode and we end it all by answering a few emails we have received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Depot Dive - Episode 8 - May 23, 2024

May 23, 2024 - On this episode of The Depot Dive, Ross McCorkle and Joe Clark lead off the show with a discussion on Justin Fields and his comments made during the first day of OTAs on Tuesday. He comes with the mentality of competing for a starting job, but how realistic are his expectations? We discuss the dynamic between Fields and Russell Wilson and how it seems to be a positive relationship thus far and compare it to some reports about his time in Chicago. We also make predictions on how many games, if any, he will start in 2024. We next move on to some praise being showered on offensive coordinator Arthur Smith early on in the OTA process. We compare it to comments made about Matt Canada's offense in the past, and why Smith continued to be an underrated storyline for the Steelers entering next season. For the third topic, we discuss Patrick Peterson stating his desire to return to the Steelers and whether or not we see that happening at some point this offseason. We also discussed some other comments he made about the quarterback situation in Pittsburgh and why he might be experiencing some FOMO. For the final topic, we discuss a pair of running backs recently signed to the roster in Jonathan Ward and La'Mical Perine. The show is wrapped up by a listener question asking about the rookie wall lining up with the difficult final eight games of the schedule and whether that could spell trouble for the Steelers.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers First Day Of OTAs, Draft In Pittsburgh, Cam Heyward Extension Example & More

May 22, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 135 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about everything relevant to come out of Pittsburgh Steelers first day of OTA practices for 2024 that took place on Tuesday. The Steelers made a few more transactions on Tuesday so Alex and I recap the one signing and one waiving that took place. We also go over the signing bonuses that were given to the team's five undrafted free agents now that those amounts are known. We then go over all that Steelers HC Mike Tomlin had to say on Tuesday and that includes his answers to questions about DT Cameron Heyward skipping OTAs and the team not picking up the fifth-year option on RB Najee Harris. New Steelers quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Justin Fields both had media sessions on Tuesday, so we go over what both had to say. We also talk about Harris not talking to the media at the start of OTAs. Steelers T Dan Moore Jr. also made a few interesting comments on Tuesday, so we parse those during this show. We also talk about the latest health updates on CB Cory Trice Jr. and ILB Cole Holcomb. It was announced on Wednesday morning that Pittsburgh will be hosting the 2026 NFL Draft, so Alex and I break that news during this show. After discussing what the extreme high side of a contract extension for Heyward might look like during the Monday episode, Alex and I then go over what the numbers would like if the veteran defensive tackle received no new money in 2024 as part of two additional years being added. We also remind everyone what the extensions that S Troy Polamalu and TE Heath Miller both looked like back in 2014. Alex and I go over what the motivation for Heyward would be if all he is looking for is two additional years being added to his contract with no new money in 2024 and no guaranteed money in future years. Alex and I both have finished studies related to the Steelers 2024 regular season schedule that was released last Wednesday so we go over our findings. Finally, we go over the latest news related to two NFL wide receivers that are not present for the start of OTAs with their respective teams.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers' 2024 Schedule Recap, Possible Cam Heyward Extension, First OTA Week Preview & More

May 20, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 134 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking more about the 2024 schedule that the Pittsburgh Steelers will face on the heels of it becoming official last Wednesday. This is more of my view of the schedule, fairness, potential pitfalls and more on the heels of Alex discussing the topic with Joe Clark and Ross McCorkle during the Friday episode for which I was absent. We discuss how the Steelers Christmas game against the Kansas City Chiefs was an additional kick below the belt on the heels of the team having to play all six of their AFC North games within their final eight scheduled contests. With Steelers DT Cameron Heyward now seemingly looking for a contract extension as of last week, Alex and I take a deep dive into his situation moving forward into the summer. We discuss what an extension might look like for Heyward that could work well for both him and the Steelers. We also discuss what a bad deal might look like for the Steelers from a guaranteed money standpoint past 2024. Alex and I discuss when we think we might see the Steelers and Heyward strike a new extension deal and if either of us are worried about him potentially bypassing all of the OTA sessions this summer. With OTAs getting underway this week, Alex and I discuss a few things we are hoping to learn about the 2024 Steelers over the course of the next several weeks.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers' Official 2024 Schedule, Cameron Heyward Contract Situation

May 17, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 133 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday episode, Alex Kozora, Joe Clark, and Ross McCorkle get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers' official 2024 schedule with the release coming on Wednesday evening. We go game by game through the first 10 matchups before talking about the tough back half of the schedule from a high level overview. We discuss some of the matchups we look forward to seeing on each team, reasons to be optimistic or worried about each game and how the first half of the schedule is no cakewalk, either. We wrap up the schedule talk by offering up each of our favorite and least favorite parts of the 2024 schedule and by discussing the six division matchups over the final eight weeks of the season. Later in this show, we talk about Cameron Heyward sitting out voluntary OTAs and the possibility of a contract extension. We weigh in on whether or not we want to see an extension, what the alternatives might be, and whether or not Heyward can remain effective as a player for two or three more seasons.

The Depot Dive - Episode 7 - May 16, 2024

On this episode of The Depot Dive, Ross McCorkle and Joe Clark lead off the show with a discussion about several aspects of the Steelers' 2024 schedule, which was officially revealed on Wednesday evening. This conversation included the oddities of having all divisional matchups over the final eight weeks, a pair of short weeks preceded by Ravens rivalry games, and much more. They also briefly discuss some oddsmakers predictions with the opening betting spreads now posted, and the Steelers being favored in just six games. They next move on to Cam Heyward reportedly missing voluntary workouts and requesting a contract extension. What would an extension look like? Will it be a distraction to the team? Are they in favor of an extension overall? They answer these questions and more on the topic. Finally, they discuss some ESPN projections posted by Mike Clay this past week in which the Steelers kind of remain the same team year over year with a good defense and a bad offense. They talk about some of the individual projections as well as some unit-wide projections and share their opinions on the model overall. The show is wrapped up by a listener question asking for our record prediction for the 2024 Steelers.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers' Supposed Early 2024 Schedule Leaks, Revisiting Najee Harris Decision & More

May 15, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 132 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about some of the supposed 2024 schedule leaks for the Pittsburgh Steelers ahead of the official version dropping on Wednesday night. If you believe the early leaks, which is dangerous to do, the Steelers will open on the road against the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos and that sets up great early-season storylines if those two games hold true. The Steelers will also supposedly play the Kansas City Chiefs at home on Christmas and that game will presumably be streamed on Netflix to out of market viewers. Throughout the show, supposed leaks come in concerning all of the Steelers 2024 road games so we go over those as they hit Twitter/X. We also go over what the early leaks show when it comes to the supposed 2024 bye week possibilities for the Steelers. Later in this show, Alex and I revisit the offseason situation the Steelers have with RB Najee Harris when it comes to him possibly receiving a contract extension before Week One on the heels of the team declining to pick up his fifth-year option for 2025. We revisit this topic to discuss if some sort of precedent might be involved should the team ultimately decide to sign Harris to an extension this offseason. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 59-minute episode and we end it all by answering a few emails we have received from listeners. We also discuss what to look forward to when it comes to the Friday show. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing CB Anthony Averett, Rookie Minicamp Takeaways, Draft Pick Nitpicking & More

May 13, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 131 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers signing free agent CB Anthony Averett to a one-year contract after he participated in the team's annual rookie minicamp over the weekend on a tryout basis. With the Steelers 2024 rookie minicamp now in the books, Alex and I give our biggest takeaways to come out over the weekend. We focus mainly on the sides two of the team's draft picks played on the offensive line and what we hope that ultimately transpires into. The Steelers signed five of their seven 2024 draft picks over the weekend so Alex and I discuss that news and why there might be a little holdup in getting OT Troy Fautanu and OC Zach Frazier signed to their rookie contracts. Veteran OLB Bud Dupree won't be back in Pittsburgh this season, so we go over that news of him signing elsewhere over the weekend. The 2024 NFL schedule will officially be released on Wednesday, so Alex and I discuss the few games that have been announced so far. We also attempt to whittle down who the Steelers first game of the 2024 NFL regular season will be. Alex wrote one Monday morning about one main concern he has for each member of the Steelers 2024 draft class, so we recap that post later in this show.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing WR Scotty Miller, Rookie Minicamp, Interviews With Gregg Bell, Chris Tomasson & More

May 10. 2024 - Season 14, Episode 130 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers signing free agent WR Scotty Miller to a one-year contract since our last show. We discuss what Miller brings to the team, the state of the wide receiver room right now and much more concerning that position group. The Steelers 2024 rookie minicamp gets underway on Friday, so Alex and I go over the roster that was released and several other preview items ahead of the annual event in Pittsburgh. Steelers RB Najee Harris was back in the news on Thursday, and we tell you why. We discuss how we both think it's crazy to believe the report that Harris would have asked the Steelers to not pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. Might former Steelers OLB Bud Dupree be brought back in the coming days, weeks, or months? We attempt to answer those questions on the heels of a Thursday report concerning him. Later in this show, Alex and I are joined by Gregg Bell, who covers the Seattle Seahawks for The News Tribune, and Chris Tomasson, who covers the Denver Broncos for the Denver Gazette. We ask Bell about the possibility of the Steelers acquiring Seahawks WR DK Metcalf via a trade after June 1. We also get his thoughts on new Steelers QB Russell Wilson, who obviously played several years for the Seahawks after starting his NFL career in Seattle. As for our interview with Tomasson, we get his thoughts on if he thinks the Broncos might be looking to trade WR Courtland Sutton at any point during the offseason. We also get his thoughts on Wilson landing with the Steelers after playing the last two seasons with the Broncos in Denver. As always, we ask that you follow Bell and Tomasson on Twitter/X at @gbellseattle and @christomasson, respectively. You can read the work of these two beat writers at https://www.thenewstribune.com/profile/218712645 and https://gazette.com/users/profile/chris%20tomasson/, respectively as well. Alex and I then quickly recap what Bell and Tomasson told us on Friday.

The Depot Dive - Episode 6 - May 9, 2024

May 9, 2024 - On this episode of The Depot Dive, Ross McCorkle and Joe Clark kick things off by talking about the addition of WR Scotty Miller to the roster -- not exactly the "significant playmaker" that fans have been on the lookout for over the last couple weeks. They discuss the quantity over quality approach to the current WR room, and the possibility of continuing to add to that room later in the offseason. They then talk about the need at cornerback and some buzz around a reunion with Cam Sutton, and whether or not they see such a move happening given the legal issues he is facing. For the next topic, they discuss Najee Harris' fifth-year option decision and some of the factors that may have led to the Steelers declining it. Was it a good decision, or could it come back to bite the team later? They also talk about some comments by Kevin Colbert on Cameron Heyward's Not Just Football podcast where he discusses trying not to reach for players in the draft, and discuss some of his last several drafts when he was the GM where he was perceived as having reached on a few occasions. The show is wrapped up by Joe's take on the Austin Rivers NFL vs NBA debate, including some comments made by Heyward with his take on the matter.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers WR Room Overview, Potential Trade Targets, Mason McCormick Tape & More

May 8, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 129 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the ever-dwindling list of free agent wide receivers now available on the heels of recent signings around the NFL. We then look at the state of the wide receiver depth chart that the Pittsburgh Steelers currently have and debate if that group is still one significant player short. Are the Steelers still attempting to maybe trade for a wide receiver? If they are, who would their trade targets be and why? We get into that discussion in the middle of this show. There are a few more Steelers rookie minicamp invites to discuss in this show, so we do just that. Additionally, we discuss the official jersey numbers that have been announced for the members of the 2024 draft class. Alex and I briefly discuss what he saw on tape when it comes to the Steelers fourth round draft pick this year, OG Mason McCormick. We also talk a little bit about another one of the team's seven draft picks this year, ILB Payton Wilson. Former Steelers WR Antonio Brown had some things to say concerning his old team during a recent interview with Jason Whitlock on his show, so we quickly recap those talking points. I update the cash spending of the Steelers now that the draft is over with. We discuss where more cash might be spent moving forwards into the offseason.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers CB Cory Trice Jr., WR Marquez Callaway, Zach Frazier Tape Breakdown & More

May 6, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 128 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the upcoming rookie minicamp that the Pittsburgh Steelers will conduct later this week and how it does not appear as though CB Cory Trice Jr. will be eligible to participate in it due to CBA rules. We discuss the fairness of that and more. The Steelers signed WR Marquez Callaway to a futures contract earlier in the offseason and Alex and I discuss his chances of making the 53-man roster in 2024. We talk some about his career to date and his limited special teams exposure in the NFL so far as well. Steelers rookie CB Ryan Watts, the team's final draft pick this year, has some unusually long arms and we pass along some research that Alex has conducted related to that topic. Alex also recently posted a film room on rookie Steelers C Zach Frazier that we recap in this show. We take time to go over the veteran player winners/losers list that Alex put together based on what all has transpired so far this offseason with the Steelers.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Decision On RB Najee Harris, Justin Fields Maybe Returning Kicks, DK Metcalf & More

May 3, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 127 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers decision to not exercise the fifth-year option on the rookie contract of RB Najee Harris. We go over all aspects of that decision on Harris, what likely led to the declining of the fifth-year option and what the outcomes with the running back might be moving forward. We discuss if we think the Steelers made the right decision with Harris as well. Alex and I go over a short list of players that eventually signed new contracts with their respective teams after initially having their fifth-year options declined. We also discuss what course of action Harris may or may not take for the remainder of the offseason now that his fifth-year option has been declined by the Steelers. After a long discussion about Harris, Alex and I then discuss the possibility of new Steelers QB Justin Fields being used some as a kickoff returner based on what all RB Jaylen Warren said on the topic during his recent interview with Cameron Heyward on his podcast over the weekend. Will Fields even get as much as one snap on the kickoff return team in 2024? We attempt to answer that question. Alex and I then move on to recap the event last few days that former Steelers CB Bryant McFadden has had after his tweet concerning Pittsburgh likely to add a "significant playmaker" soon. We also review what Steelers GM Omar Khan had said in recent interviews concerning the team possibly trading for "significant playmaker" soon. Dur to reader and listener peer pressure this last week, I went down the rabbit hole of the plausibility of the Steelers maybe trading for Seattle seahawks WR DK Metcalf after June 1. We go over the situation the Seahawks have with their salary cap, why they may or may not be interested in trading Metcalf and also go over things related to Seattle that will be worth following these next few weeks. With two more free agent wide receivers, D.J. Chark and Odell Beckham Jr., now agreeing to terms with new teams, Alex and I update the short list of players that the Steelers might could consider adding to their roster in some form or fashion moving forward into the offseason. Finally, we go over the latest players invited to participate in the Steelers upcoming rookie minicamp, which will take place in Pittsburgh next weekend. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 92-minute episode and we end it all by answering several emails we have received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Depot Dive - Episode 5 - May 2, 2024

May 2, 2024 - With the 2024 NFL Draft in the books, Joe Clark and Ross McCorkle discuss the full draft class, and go through each player individually to discuss their fit and the value they brought the Steelers in the draft. The theme was hearts and smarts and three of the players had one specific trait in common. They also discussed the "significant playmaker" watch that has been going on since former Steelers CB Bryant McFadden posted a compelling tweet and later walked it back a bit. The final topic was discussing Jaylen Warrens comments on Justin Fields returning kicks and how feasible that is. They finish the show by answering a listener question.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers' Early 53-Man Roster Prediction, Khan Comments, Wilson Contextualization & More

May 1, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 126 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about some latest news cornering the Pittsburgh Steelers and that includes us going over some players that have been invited to participate in the team's forthcoming rookie minicamp. New Steelers T Troy Fautanu is discussed a little bit early in this show as part of some things he recently said in an interview. We talk some about why he likely slid to the Steelers at 20th overall in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Steelers GM Omar Khan has conducted several interviews since our last show, so Alex and I recap that the things he had to say that were important. We go over the addition of another wide receiver and cornerback not being imminent at this time and the possibility of veteran CB Cameron Sutton being brought back. We also talk about the status of the recent report restructuring of the contract of OLB Alex Highsmith and how it has yet to hit the NFLPA side yet. Alex recently did a full profile on undrafted free agent RB Daijun Edwards, so we discuss what that longer look showed. We also discuss the two targets contextualizations of new Steelers WR Roman Wilson from his time at Michigan that I have now completed. We also talk a little about the New York Jets seemingly having interest in drafting Wilson this past weekend. Alex also posted his way-too-early 53-man roster prediction for 2024 on the site so we go through that position group by position group. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 90-minute episode and we end it all by answering several emails we have received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Ranking Of Troy Fautanu, Roman Wilson 2023 Targets, Listener Questions & More

April 29, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 125 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about some latest news cornering the Pittsburgh Steelers since the 2024 NFL Draft ended. We go over a few signing bonuses given out to undrafted free agents so far. Where did the Steelers have OT Troy Fautanu ranked on their first-round draft board? We think we might have that answer thanks to a video from the team that Alex dissected. We discuss the possible six players the Steelers had ranked ahead of Fautanu if indeed he was seventh. I have ALMOST finished a complete 2023 target contextualization on new Steelers WR Roman Wilson and with the data now in, Alex and I discuss what that and the tape shows concerning stats, usage, position fit and much more. We also discuss the fact that I will be deep diving the 2021 tape of Wilson as well in the coming days and why. Alex and I both spent time deep diving new Steelers G Mason McCormick and DE Logan Lee so we discuss those two draft picks more in-depth during this Monday show.

We go over the good and bad and value of each player and what the tape that we have seen so far says about each.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Drafting OT Troy Fautanu, Day 2 Draft Targets, 49ers WR Situation & More

April 26, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 122 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers selecting OT Troy Fautanu out of Washington at 20th overall in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft on Thursday night. We discuss what the tape tells us about Fautanu, why he likely fell to the Steelers in the first round, his potential side and position fit in Pittsburgh and more. We go over some measurables and stats related to Fautanu, him growing up a fan of the Steelers and what GM Omar Khan and HC Mike Tomlin had to say about him during the post-selection press conference. With the second day of the 2024 NFL Draft resuming on Friday, Alex and I discuss the needs the Steelers still have, and we go over potential targets for their three scheduled selections. We build a pretty lengthy target list that covers several positions. Might the San Francisco 49ers still wind up trading a wide receiver on the heels of them drafting former Florida WR Ricky Pearsall Thursday night? We discuss that topic and wonder if the 49ers might be interested in trading away WR Jauan Jennings if they decide to keep Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. We also discuss the Samuel cap charge and how it might be very tough for the Steelers to trade for him.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Restructuring Contract Of Alex Highsmith, WR Trade Chances Now & More

April 24, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 121 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday episode, the second one of the day, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly recently restructuring the contract of OLB Alex Highsmith, the timing of it, and what it might mean right ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft taking place. We break down the actual Highsmith restructure details, the 2024 salary cap space cleared, and how much under the Steelers sit now ahead of the start of the 2024 NFL Draft. While the Highsmith contract restructuring isn’t huge news in the grand scheme of things, the timing of it is and we tell you why that is. Could this mean that Steelers are earnestly attempting to trade for a wide receiver such as Brandon Aiyuk of the San Francisco 49ers or Courtland Sutton of the Denver Broncos? We dive deeper into attempting to answer that question again. We make sure to ponder if there would be any other reason to restructure Highsmith’s contract this early in the offseason, and specifically right ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft getting underway. We attempt to address what a new contract for Aiyuk or Sutton might look like right now and on the heels of yet another NFL wide receiver signing a mega extension. Alex and I also ponder what sort of trade compensation might be involved when it comes to trading for either Brandon Aiyuk or Sutton in the next few days.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Final 2024 Steelers Mock Drafts, Potential Draft Targets By Position & More

April 24, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 120 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday episode, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the mock draft process during the offseason and why I loathe having to do at least one. We move on to discuss the rumors floating around concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft getting underway on Thursday night. Most of those rumors are related to possible trades the Steelers could make in the coming days. There are a few nuggets to cover so we do just that. Former Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger chimed in Wednesday morning with his thoughts on the needs the Steelers have ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft. We discuss the direction he thinks the Steelers should go in the first round when it comes to a position. Today is the 20th anniversary of the Steelers drafting Roethlisberger, so we talk about where we both were when that happened in 2004. Alex and I then dive into our final mock drafts for the Steelers that are now live on the site. We go pick-by-pick and discuss reasons for each selection. We also discuss several players we considered mocking to the Steelers in various rounds. Is the weight of Oregon C Jackson Powers-Johnson a feature or a bug? We have a brief discussion about him during this show. We close this show out by going through each of the position groups ahead of the draft and which prospects within them seem like potential Steelers' selections.

April 22, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 118 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to parsing the annual Pittsburgh Steelers pre-draft press conference that took place earlier in the day. We go over the main takeaways from what all Steelers GM Omar Khan and HC Mike Tomlin said and didn’t say on Monday as the team makes their final preparations for the 2024 NFL Draft, which will get underway Thursday night. We talk about Tomlin's comments on his pro day actions, the team possibly selecting a quarterback in the later rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft and much more. We also go over the loose health updates that were given on CB Cory Trice Jr. and ILB Cole Holcomb on Monday. How likely is it that the Steelers will trade down in the first round Thursday night based on what Khan said on Monday? We make sure to deep dive into that topic once again in this episode. Did Khan or Tomlin say anything on Monday that influenced any of our current thoughts on what may or may not happen during the 2024 NFL Draft? We have that discussion briefly. Former LSU WR Brian Thomas Jr. is seemingly being linked as the Steelers possible first round selection to start this week, so we discuss those major media rumblings later on in this Monday show.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers 'Look For' Studies, Tackle Vs. Center At 20 Debate, Perfect CB Spot & Much More

April 19, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 117 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about his livestreamed mock draft Thursday night and how he did a great job of overcoming it going off the rails in several areas. With the 2024 NFL Draft now less than a week away, Alex and I discuss the conundrum the Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to have in the first round when it comes to them possibly needing to pick between the tackle and center positions. We discuss which position is really the greatest need of the two and how the rest of the draft could become really messy should a tackle be chosen in the first round. Alex has completed a few more ‘What The Steelers Look For’ studies since our last show and so we discuss the results uncovered when he addressed the inside linebacker and interior offensive linemen positions. How soon should the Steelers address the cornerback position in this year's draft? Could Michigan CB Mike Sainristil slide to 84th overall due to his height? If he doesn’t, which cornerback that fits in the slot might still be on the board come the 84th overall selection? How big of need is defensive line and inside linebacker in this year's draft and might one or both positions be addressed within the first four picks? We discuss that topic some during this show. Steelers CB Cory Trice Jr. seems to be on track to participate in the team's rookie minicamp this year, so we talk a little bit about his prospects moving forward into the summer.

They then dive right into the week's topics and discuss the finalized list of pre-draft visitors including a high level overview of the number of players at each position that came to town and some surprising names to consider, including some top inside linebackers that were added to the list over the last few days. Next, they talk about something said by CBS Sports' Aditi Kinkhabwala stating that the Steelers could potentially draft a quarterback at some point with QB coach Tom Arth doing his due diligence. Which prospects have the Steelers shown interest in, and how late in the draft could a QB be drafted? They wrap up the topics with talking about some words from Post-Gazette insider Gerry Dulac, stating his opinion that the Steelers will select Duke OL Graham Barton in the first round and some thoughts on the WR2 situation in Pittsburgh. The show is wrapped up by a voicemail question from a listener about the prospects of trading up or down in the draft.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers 'Look For' Studies, Graham Barton Visit, First Round Pick Odds & More

April 17, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 116 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to the big news from Tuesday, which was former Duke OL Graham Barton finally having a pre-draft visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers. We discuss what a big deal that is when it comes to him potentially being the team's first round draft pick this year. North Carolina State LB Payton Wilson was also in for a pre-draft visit on Tuesday, so Alex and I discuss him a bit as well. Later in the show, Alex and I go over the three players who were brought in for pre-draft visits on Wednesday. Is former Washington OL Troy Fautanu a tackle or guard at the NFL level? Alex and I discuss that topic during the show and mainly due to his height versus arm length. We discuss him potentially being a center convert like Barton should the Steelers ultimately draft him. Alex has started his annual "What The Steelers Look For" studies when it comes to the NFL Draft and specific positions and with him now completing the wide receiver and defensive end positions for 2024, we look at what his results show. We also discuss the lack of players doing all of the drills throughout the pre-draft process and what that might mean for Alex's studies moving forward. As part of the wide receiver box checking, I attempt to build the list out even more at that position based on projections. More betting odds concerning several draft prospects have started to surface so we mix a few of those into our Wednesday podcast episode. We make a quick run through of the Steelers' 2024 pre-draft visitor list as it sits right now. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 109-minute episode, and we end things by answering several emails that we received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers' Blue's Clues List, Tackle Measurable Study, Brandon Aiyuk Latest & More

April 15, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 115 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, which was recorded late Sunday evening, Alex Kozora and I go over his Sunday post which recapped the “Blue's Clues” related to the Pittsburgh Steelers and their possible first round selection in the 2024 NFL Draft. We discuss the short list of players that qualify to be the Steelers first round draft pick this year based solely on GM Omar Khan and HC Mike Tomlin being present at their respective pro days. We spend extra time discussing if one of three Alabama products on the list could wind up being Pittsburgh's first round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Alex and I also discuss which players have the best chance of breaking the Khan/Tomlin pro day attendance streak this year. San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk was back in the news because of something his agent tweeted on Sunday, and we tell you why. We also discuss the Steelers' biggest hurdles to get over when it comes to them possibly trading for one of Aiyuk or Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins. Alex has started his annual "What The Steelers Look For" studies when it comes to the NFL Draft and specific positions and with his post on the tackle now up on the site, we review what the data says. We discuss the two tacklers the Steelers seem most likely to draft after the first round if they fail to address the position with their first selection. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 70-minute episode, and we end things by answering several emails that we received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing K Matthew Wright, Long Center Discussion, Visitors & More

April 12, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 114 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers signing free agent K Matthew Wright on Wednesday. We go over what Wright’s addition means, his contract, and much more. We also look at the available 2024 salary cap space the Steelers have after signing Wright. The Steelers have had several more players in for pre-draft visits since our Wednesday show, so Alex and I recap all of that news and much more as this part of the offseason comes to a close. Are you ready for a long discussion about centers and the 2024 NFL Draft? We hope so because Alex and I discuss everything related to the top three ranked centers in this draft class, Graham Barton, Jackson Powers-Johnson, and Zach Frazier. Should teams be looking at Barton as a guard? Are the Dallas Cowboys destined to select one of Barton or Powers-Johnson in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft? Who else needs a center in the first two rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft? We attempt to answer those questions in this show. Will the Steelers ultimately need to trade up in the second round to secure one of Barton, Powers-Johnson, or Frazier? We address that question and look at one plausible trade scenario in this show. We go over several historical aspects related to the center position and NFL Drafts during this show as well.

The Depot Dive - Episode 2 - April 11, 2024

April 11, 2024 - For Joe Clark and Ross McCorkle's weekly segment of The Depot Dive, they get right into talking about a recent discussion from Jason La Canfora about the Steelers still being in the trade market for a wide receiver, stating that they could be looking right up until their pick at 20th overall in the upcoming draft. We go through a list of receivers around the league who could make some sense, and discuss what trade compensation we would be comfortable with the team giving away. Next, we move into a discussion on the Steelers over/under win total projections and discussed why we think 8.5 is too low, with a caveat that the schedule and the caliber of opposing quarterbacks will be much more difficult in 2024. We wrap up the show talking about Dane Brugler mentioning that Troy Fautanu is capable of being a five-position player on the offensive line which could make sense why the Steelers have shown such heavy interest in a college left tackle. That leads us into a discussion on Duke Manyweather stating that starting-caliber centers can be found "four rounds deep" in the draft and who our favorite prospects are in the middle rounds at the position.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Recent Pre-Draft Visitors, Dane Brugler Draft Guide Rankings, Jaylen Warren & More

April 10, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 113 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the New York Giants signing former Pittsburgh Steelers WR Miles Boykin on Tuesday. That discussion focuses on the Steelers now having lost their two special teams gunners so far this offseason in Boykin and CB James Pierre. The Steelers keep adding to their pre-draft visitor list, so we talk about the most recent players visiting Pittsburgh. We spend a lot of time talking about former Texas WR Adonai Mitchell and where he ranks in this year's draft class at the position and if he could be in play as the 20th overall selection. Later in the show, we discuss the Steelers having former Oregon C Jackson Powers-Johnson in on Wednesday as one of their two pre-draft visitors and the significance of that happening. Alex and I go over the contract details related to new Steelers TE MyCole Pruitt and where that leaves the team at in terms of available 2024 salary cap space. We also discuss the redistribution of cash the Steelers have had since early February as part of their offseason roster reshaping. Alex and I have a spirited discussion about the possibility of the Steelers signing RB Jaylen Warren to a contract extension this offseason and what a new average per year amount might look like if they do. With Wednesday being the release of the annual Dane Brugler draft guide on The Athletic, Alex and I dive into some of his positional rankings in this show. We focus on the center, tackle, wide receiver, defensive tackle, and cornerback positions when it comes to Brugler's draft guide in relation to the Steelers needs.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Draft Day Trade Scenarios, CB Pre-Draft Visits, WKU WR Malachi Corley Fit & More

April 8, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 112 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking former Rutgers CB Max Melton reportedly having a pre-draft visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday. We discuss how he would fit in with the Steelers and how we have yet to find anyone from the organization at his pro day. We talk about the Steelers possibly double-dipping at the cornerback position in this year's draft. The Steelers have seemingly shown quite a bit of interest in former Western Kentucky WR Malachi Corley throughout the pre-draft process, so we discuss what the tape and analytics say about him and his potential fit in Pittsburgh. Will the Steelers trade up or down in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft? Alex and I discuss those possibilities in this show and go over the history of first round trades made by the Steelers dating back to 2000. We also talk about which round in this year’s draft that the Steelers are most likely to trade up in and why. Former Ferris State CB Shon Stephens will reportedly come to Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit, so Alex and I discuss the cousin of CB Jory Porter Jr. just a little in this show. We also discuss slot cornerback options for the Steelers in this year's draft and the five primary players we think the team might target.

April 4, 2024 - A new weekly segment here on Steelers Depot, Joe Clark and I will be hosting a video podcast every Thursday where we deep dive into some of the week's biggest Steelers topics. This week we discussed recent pre-draft visitors and some of the news from the end of the pro day circuit including WVU C Zach Frazier's performance at the Big 12 pro day. We also discuss LSU Maason Smith coming in for a visit and how he meets a lot of what the Steelers look for in defensive linemen before wrapping up the segment with the latest pre-draft visitor news including Clemson CB Nate Wiggins and WR Luke McCaffrey. We then move on to Russell Wilson and Justin Fields talk to discuss what the dynamic may be at the quarterback position for the team this season. We discuss the likelihood of Fields starting some games in 2024, the contract situation with no QBs signed past 2024, and whether or not Fields will receive an extension prior to the start of the season. We wrap things up with discussing a few of the latest mock draft scenarios that are floating around on the internet including Alex Kozora's all-round mock draft from earlier this week.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing TE MyCole Pruitt, 2020 Graham Barton Tape, Pre Draft Visitor Updates & More

April 5, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 111 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the new show we have developed and released for the site that is hosted by Joe Clark and Ross McCorkle. We move on to discuss the Pittsburgh Steelers agreeing to terms with TE MyCole Pruitt, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons. We discuss Pruitt's 2023 tape, his fit in Pittsburgh and his previous associations with new OC Artur Smith and more. Will the Steelers really carry four tight ends, three running backs and five wide receivers as part of their 2024 53-man roster? We discuss that topic along with the team again likely to carry three quarterbacks. The Steelers had three more pre-draft visitors in on Thursday and that list was headlined by former Clemson CB Nate Wiggins. We discuss those three players and the possibility of Wiggins being the Steelers first round selection in the 2024 NFL Draft. We have more talk about former Duke OL Graham Barton in this show and that is because I went back and watched two games of his at center from the 2020 season since our last show. We discuss what that tape showed and much more related to Barton, who seems very much in the mix to be drafted by the Steelers this year. The new Steelers players now have their new jersey numbers so Alex and I run down that list.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Recent Visitors, Kozora Mock Draft, Possible RB Extensions, Cap Update & More

April 3, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 110 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking more about the recent visitors that the Pittsburgh Steelers have had this week. Most of those are draft related visitors with one other being a free agent inside linebacker. We go over the full list of visitors, what they all likely mean and much more. Alex released his most recent mock draft a few days ago so we tear through that pick-by-pick. We spend extra time on his first-round player, Duke OL Graham Barton, as we finally get around to having a longer discussion on him. Alex and I discuss the NFL's Performance-Based Pay program in this show and how I have spent way too much time trying to reverse engineer the formula for that and why. We also take time in this show to discuss the outlook for the Steelers when it comes to them potentially receiving any compensatory draft picks next offseason. We also talk about the contract details related to the team's four most recent signings and where the Steelers now sit salary cap wise for 2024 on this Wednesday. Will the Steelers sign one or both of their top two running backs to contract extensions this offseason? We address the situations and plausibility of that happening for Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren quite thoroughly. We quick go over the Wednesday pre-draft visitors the Steelers now have in Pittsburgh and also discuss the Wednesday breaking news of the Buffalo Bills trading WR Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Walk The Mock Picks, Zach Frazier Pro Day, Center Options, DB Coach Grady Brown & More

April 1, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 109 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking more about the recent Big 12 pro day and specifically, the results that former West Virginia C Zach Frazier turned in. We discuss Frazier's draft stock at this point in the offseason. Where will the Steelers select a center in this year's draft, and do they run the risk of missing out on one of the top three if they don't select one in the first round? We talk about that topic some and both still wonder if the team might add a veteran center to their roster ahead of the draft. Alex took part in the annual Walk the Mock draft over the weekend, so we discuss that two-round exercise and who he wound up selecting for the Steelers with the two picks. Where has Steelers defensive backs coach Grady Brown been throughout the pro day cycle and is it concerning that we have yet to spot him at any colleges so far through our deep examinations? Alex and I discuss the updated pro day and pre-draft visitor trackers on this Monday. We discuss what stood out in the recent play-by-play contextualizations that I posted that revolve around the 2023 touchdown passes thrown by the Steelers top new quarterbacks, Russell Wilson and Justin Fields.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Bringing In QB Michael Penix Jr., Logical First Round Pick Candidates, Pro Days & More

March 29, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 108 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Thursday report that indicated the Pittsburgh Steelers have a pre-draft visit scheduled with former Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. We go over why maybe Penix is being brought in, the chances of the Steelers selecting him in the 2024 NFL Draft and more. The Steelers continue to be busy on the pro draft trail, so Alex and I discuss where all we have spotted members of the team's personnel the last few days. We talk specifically about where several coordinators and position coaches have been spotted the last few days and who they likely went to see, specifically. Is former Duke OL Graham Barton being overrated or underrated so far during the pre-draft process and would the Steelers seriously consider selecting him in the first round at 20th overall without GM Omar Khan and HC Mike Tomlin not being present at his Thursday pro day? The Steelers certainly seem destined to select an inside linebacker at some point during this year's draft and we tell you why we both believe that. Alex and I take time in this show to recap the logical and legitimate first round selection candidates so far based on all of the usual clues the team has given as far as pro days go. It's a short list overall, and it seems like former Georgia OT Amarius Mims is the proverbial leader in the clubhouse at this point. We also explain why we will be looking closely at the Big 12 pro day sessions that remain on the calendar this week. Have the Steelers’ collective actions so far since the start of the new league been overrated? Have they spent as much collective cash as we thought they might? We discuss those topics a little bit in this show.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing Patterson, Lowry, Allen, Kickoff Rule Change Discussion, Khan Comments & More

March 27, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 107 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to the big news on Tuesday concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers agreeing to terms with KR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson on a two-year, $6 million contract. We discuss the timing of Patterson’s signing related to the new kickoff rule being passed on Tuesday and what he adds to the team on the offensive side of the football as well. We go deep into his fit with the Steelers which mainly revolves around his kick returning abilities. Alex and I dig deep into the new kickoff rule and the impact it might have not only on the actual play, but the personnel used on special teams as well. We discuss if we like the rule change overall. The Steelers also recently signed DL Dean Lowry and QB Kyle Allen so Alex and I give our initial thoughts of their additions to the 2024 roster. We also provide extended thoughts on the recent addition of WR Quez Watkins, who we talked a little about during our Monday podcast. Steelers team president Art Rooney II and general manager Omar Khan both talked some at the annual league meetings in Orlando, Fla., so Alex and I go over the main talking points provided by each the last few days. Several other rule changes were passed at the league meetings this week so Alex and I discuss some of the notable ones and the expected impact each might have. With four new players agreeing to terms with the Steelers this past week, I provide a 2024 team salary cap update based on projections of those new deals. Alex and I discuss what other positions the Steelers might address in free agency moving forward and what those contracts might ultimately look like. The Steelers remain busy in the pre-draft process, so we discuss the team's most recent visitor and where all personnel have been spotted around the country when it comes to their scouting of players.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing WR Quez Watkins, Mike Tomlin Comments From NFL Meetings & More

March 25, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 106 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I discuss the morning news of the Pittsburgh Steelers signing former Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins to a one-year contract. We address how he fits on the team and what he brings to the Steelers. Steelers HC Mike Tomlin has now talked twice at the annual meetings in Orlando, Florida and that resulted in him producing quite a few talking points on various topics. Alex and I spend the bulk of this show going over all of the main things that Tomlin had to say on Sunday evening and Monday morning. We discuss the Steelers pecking order at the quarterback position, Broderick Jones potentially moving to left tackle, the draft related to the center and wide receiver positions, the health of ILB Cole Holcomb and DT Cameron Heyward, and much, much more on the heels of Tomlin's recent media comments. Some NFL rule changes are on the way with the most notable one being related to the hip-drop tackle. Alex and I spend a little time discussing that set of topics in this show. Later in this show, Alex and I once again revisit the situation with San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk and this was before the GM John Lynch spoke to the media on Monday morning. We go over the 49ers current cap and financial situations as it relates to them not being guaranteed to trade Aiyuk. Alex and I also discuss where the Steelers currently sit in cash spending at this point of the offseason and what that might mean when it comes to more signings happening. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 107-minute episode and we end things by answering several emails that we received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Pre-Draft Process Updates, Cap Update, Brandon Aiyuk Tin Foil Hat Discussion & More

March 22, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 105 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to the latest news concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers and their pre-draft processes. This includes us discussing the growing list of pre-draft visitors, pro day sightings and much more. As expected, the steelers have a large contingent at the Michigan pro day on Friday and that includes GM Omar Khan and HC Mike Tomlin being present. We discuss if the Steelers will indeed wind up drafting a Michigan player this year and if so, which player or players that might ultimately be. We also go over where some recent position coaches have been spotted on the pro day circuit. Former Steelers CB Cameron Sutton is unfortunately in the news this week due to him being wanted by Florida police. We update what has happened with him and how the Detroit Lions have now parted ways with him as of Thursday evening. We go over what the Steelers have done so far since the 2024 NFL league year got underway last Wednesday and how we thought the team might have made another addition or two this week. We review the cash spent so far in the new league year. I pass along a new 2024 salary cap update for the Steelers during this Friday show and that leads to us having a long tin foil hat conversation about Pittsburgh potentially trading for San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk. While we addressed the Aiyuk plausibility in our last show, we go much deeper with some theories related to that topic in this show and especially when it comes to current salary cap space and cash spent. We make sure to discuss trade compensation possibilities when it comes to Aiyuk as well. The Steelers still have a few holes that it feels like they should fill before the 2024 NFL Draft rolls around, so Alex and I make sure to hit on that topic in this show. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 87-minute episode and we end things by answering several emails that we received from listeners. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Possibly Trading For WR Brandon Aiyuk, Recent Coaching Hire, Pro Days & More

March 20, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 104 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to the news regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers and their latest addition to the coaching staff, Anthony Midget. Will the Steelers trade for San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk? Is such a trade plausible and should the Steelers consider such a trade? Alex and I have a lengthy conversation about Brandon Aiyuk, and we attempt to answer several of those questions and more. We go deep into what a potential trade for Aiyuk would look like. We also go over the news that free agent WR Mike Williams has agreed to terms with the New York Jets on a one-year contract after visiting with them on Tuesday. Forker Steelers QB Kenny Pickett recently held his introductory press conference with his new team, the Philadelphia Eagles, so Alex and I quickly go over that event. The Steelers continue to make their annual pro day rounds in addition to scheduling pre-draft visitors, so Alex and I update what we know about those two topics since our last show.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Reworking Donte Jackson Contract, Mike Williams Visiting, Justin Fields Discussion & More

March 18, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 103 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to the news regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers reworking the contract of new CB Donte Jackson after trading for him last week. We go over the details of Jackson’s new contract and where that puts the Steelers right now as far as their 2024 salary cap situation goes. The Steelers are now set to bring in free agent WR Mike Williams later this week, so Alex and I discuss that news, the potential of him signing with the team, and his possible fit in Pittsburgh when it comes to the offense. We move on to talk more about new Steelers QB Justin Fields and that includes his play to date, his upside, how he might be used in the offseason 2024 as a backup to Russell Wilson and much more. We also discuss the possibility of the Steelers attempting to sign Fields to some sort of short contract extension at some point during the remainder of the offseason. How did the Steelers fail former QB Kenny Pickett in his two seasons with the team? We attempt to answer that question on the heels of the Steelers trading Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Trading For QB Justin Fields, Option Decision, WR Van Jefferson Signing & More

March 17, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 102 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Sunday show, which was recorded very late on Saturday night, Alex Kozora and I get right to the news of the Pittsburgh Steelers acquiring QB Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears via a trade earlier in the day. Alex and I discuss the compensation value that the Steelers had in trading for Fields and how the Bears effectively just had to give him away to him. We talk about how Fields' trade value seemingly rotted away this offseason. We go over the links the Steelers have to Fields dating back his draft year, what the tape says about him and his fit in the Pittsburgh quarterback room. We also discuss his contract situation and the fifth-year option decision the Steelers have on him these next several weeks. After fully discussing Fields, Alex and I give more extended thoughts on the Steelers trading away QB Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles and how there have been more reports that have come out on everything related to him. After discussing Pickett, Alex and I move forward to talk about new Steelers WR Van Jefferson, who reportedly has agreed to a one-year contract with the team since our last show. We talk about how he fits in with the Steelers and what his recent tape says about him as well.

March 15, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 101 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, which really goes off the rails quickly halfway through it, Alex Kozora and I start by reviewing the introductory press conferences that were given by QB Russell Wilson, LB Patrick Queen and S DeShon Elliott earlier in the day. We cover the main talking points from each. With Elliott being a new addition since our last show we discuss what all he brings to the Steelers and the role he'll likely have in the defense. Alex and I then recap the re-signings of three Steelers players, LS Christian Kuntz, S Miles Killebrew, and DT Montravius Adams. We briefly discuss what is known and not known about those contracts as well. Alex and I then react to the Friday news of QB Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles in real-time. We go over the tweets as they come regarding things known about that trade. It makes for an interesting show from that point forward. We then wonder about the ways the Steelers will go about filling their quarterback room on the heels of them trading away Pickett. Alex and I then go over some pre-draft visitor news in addition to the several pro day sightings related to the Steelers.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Trading WR Diontae Johnson, LB Patrick Queen Signing, Cap Update & More

March 13, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 100 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, which was recorded late Tuesday night, Alex Kozora and I get right to recapping the busy day that the Pittsburgh Steelers had ahead of the new league year starting on Wednesday afternoon. Alex and I start with the Tuesday news concerning the Steelers trading WR Diontae Johnson to the Panthers in exchange for CB Donte Jackson. We try to answer the why related to Johnson being traded and then move on to discuss the arrival of Jackson to the team. We attack this discussion from every angle and the impact, if any, it might have on the rest of free agency and the draft. As part of the trade discussion, Alex and I discuss the initial salary cap impact of it. We also discuss the possibility of Jackson’s contract being adjusted in some way, shape, or form upon his arrival to the team. We go over what that might look like if something related to his contract does happen. We move to discuss the Steelers agreeing to terms with former Baltimore Ravens LB Patrick Queen on Tuesday. We go over his play to date, what his tape says, and what all HC Mike Tomlin has said about the linebacker in the past. We discuss his fit with the Steelers and what it means to the position group overall. We also discuss the Queen contract and specifically how it's such a great deal for the Steelers. The Steelers also came to terms with former Houston Texans P Cameron Johnston so we set aside some time to discuss everything related to him joining the team. We discuss his contract, stats to date and more. As you would expect, we update the Steelers 2024 salary cap situation as the team sits right now. What will the Steelers attack in free agency moving forward? Alex and I make sure to attempt to answer that question later in the show. The Steelers have been busy on the pro day circuit since our last show so Alex and I update the sightings and what they may or may not mean when it comes to looking forward to the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Signing Russell Wilson, Expected Free Agent Moves, Alex's Mock Draft Recap & More

March 11, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 99 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to discussing the news of the Pittsburgh Steelers signing veteran QB Russell Wilson. We look at the addition of Wilson from all angles and the expectation that he will be the team's Week One starter in 2024. We also discuss what the Wilson signing means for QB Kenny Pickett moving forward. The signing of Wilson also means that QB Mason Rudolph is unlikely to re-sign so we discuss that topic in addition to the team still needing to add two more quarterbacks to their roster this offseason. Will one of those come via a late draft pick? How much better will the Steelers be in 2024 if Wilson is the team's starter and can the team at least win a playoff game? What does Wilson need to do to make the Steelers offense more competitive? We discuss all of those things. The Steelers released WR Allen Robinson II after our Friday show ended so we discuss that news along with the team re-signing DT Breiden Fehoko. What will happen to Steelers WR Diontae Johnson in this next week? Will he be traded? Alex and I revisit that topic and discuss what it would take for us to deal Johnson at this point. Alex released a new mock draft ahead of the NFL legal tampering period starting on Monday, so we go over his seven selections thoroughly. How much cash will the Steelers spend in free agency this year? Alex and I go over my projection related to that topic. We also go over the positions the Steelers are likely to add via free agency this year and what the max value might be when it comes to the team's top one or two signings in the coming weeks. Alex and I also address the Steelers own unrestricted free agents and which ones are likely to be re-signed.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Interest In Russell Wilson, Patrick Peterson Release, NFL Combine Roundtable & More

March 8, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 98 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to discussing the news concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers and their interest in QB Russell Wilson, who is reportedly headed to visit with the team on Friday. We attack the Wilson topic from every angle possible. We also discuss if Wilson is the best possible outside quarterback addition the Steelers could possibly make this offseason and how competitive the team might be if he ultimately signs. After discussing the Wilson news thoroughly, Alex and I then discuss the reported release of veteran CB Patrick Peterson on Friday. That news broke midway through the show, so we recap the salary cap space gained by his release and the impact it has on the cornerback room. Additionally, we discuss the Steelers releasing S Keanu Neal on Thursday and the impact of that move from several angles. Several former Steelers released by the team this offseason have now signed with new teams, so Alex and I recap that news when it comes to QB Mitch Trubisky and OT Chukwuma Okorafor. With the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine now behind us, Alex and I have the three site contributors that were at the event covering it, Jonathan Heitritter, Ross McCorkle, and Joe Clark, all on the Friday show for a roundtable recap discussion of the event. We discuss several players with them during roughly an hour-long discussion. We make sure to cover all of the position groups as well. If not already doing so, please make sure to follow Jonathan, Joe and Ross on Twitter and thank them for their contributions. Late in this show, Alex and I discuss the cash spending the Steelers had in 2023 and we also quickly go over the annual mock offseason exercise that Alex conducted that is now on the site as of Friday morning. While several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 126-minute episode, we unfortunately failed to get to answering any questions that we received from listeners of the show due to time constraints. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Plausible Free Agent Targets, Jerome Baker Discussion, Contract History & More

March 6, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 97 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I quickly go over the franchise and transition tags that have been placed on players around the NFL on the heels of the annual deadline passing on Tuesday. Several players are now being cut around the NFL with the start of the new league now almost here and with that, Alex and I discuss a few players now on the street that the Pittsburgh Steelers might ultimately have some interest in signing. One of those players we discuss is former Miami Dolphins ILB Jerome Baker. We go over his health status, possible fit with the Steelers, and more. We also discuss former Seattle Seahawks S Jamal Adams in the same light. Alex has now released his 2024 Steelers free agent wish lists ahead of the start of the new league year and so we go over the players he has listed on both of them. We also look at contract projections for several free agent players around the NFL as part of this long discussion. With the start of free agency almost here, Alex and I look at the history of the Steelers over the course of the last 10 years when it comes to them signing URFA types during the main period, which ends the first Monday after the annual draft is held. We discuss how many free agents the Steelers might sign this offseason and if any will set a new APY record.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Trading Johnson Plausibility, Fields Speculation, Combine Reactions & More

March 4, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 96 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, which was recorded late Sunday night, Alex Kozora and I jump right into talking about the recent passings of former Pittsburgh Steelers LB Andy Russell and longtime ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen. We discuss how Russell hasn’t even made it to be a Hall of Fame semifinalist upon his passing. On Sunday, there was a report concerning Steelers WR Diontae Johnson and the team being open to trading him for the right compensation. Alex and I dig into that report and explore both sides of the possibility that Johnson could be traded and what such a deal would need to look like and when it would likely need to happen. There's been even more speculation about the Steelers possibly trading for Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields, so Alex and I dig even more into that topic. We focus a lot on what all Adam Schefter of ESPN said recently about Fields being traded and the teams likely involved in pursuing him. We make sure to look at the plausibility factor regarding the Steelers possibly trading for Fields from all angles during this show. The 2024 NFL Scouting Combine wrapped up over the weekend and with that, Alex and I go over our main thoughts from that annual event when it comes to several of the position groups. We talk about several different players the Steelers are likely to be interested in drafting and much more.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Annual NFLPA Report Card, Omar Khan Pressers, Early Combine Takeaways & More

March 1, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 95 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, which was recorded late Thursday night, Alex Kozora and I jump right into talking about the annual NFLPA report card belonging to the Pittsburgh Steelers, which was not favorable at all. Alex and I discuss the grades the Steelers received in several different categories and are concern levels when it comes to most of them. We also discuss the role that team president Art Rooney II plays in this bad report card. Bill Hillgrove will no longer be the Steelers play-by-play caller on the radio after 30 years of holding that job, so Alex and I make sure to hit on that topic early in this show. Steelers GM Omar Khan conducted three different media interviews on Thursday while at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, IN, so Alex and I discuss all of the main talking points to come out of those. While there are too many individual talking points to list in this recap post, we certainly make sure to discuss each one thoroughly. Will the Steelers extend the contract of WR Diontae Johnson this offseason? Will T Broderick Jones move to the left side sooner rather than later? Is inside linebacker a primary draft need due to the uncertain health of ILB Cole Holcomb? We attempt to answer those questions and several others based on things that Khan did and did not say on Thursday. With the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine now well underway, Alex and I discuss the first three position groups that hit the field on Thursday. We also discuss the defensive backs the team seems to have formal interest in while in Indianapolis and we also go over some of the players who drilled on Thursday. I provide a quick 2024 salary cap update for the team late in this show as well. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 98-minute episode and we end it by answering several questions that we received from listeners of the show. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers 2024 Updated Salary Cap Status, Cole Release, Peterson Future & Much More

February 26, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 94 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I jump right into the recent news concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers releasing OC Mason Cole on Friday. We go over that transaction in its totality, the amount of salary cap space saved, the impact on free agency and the draft this year, and more. The NFL announced the official 2024 salary cap amount on Friday and that increase over 2023 was much greater than originally expected. We go over that Friday cap news and what it means for the 2024 Steelers in relation to current salary cap space. The Steelers also now have two of their exclusive rights free agents, OT Dylan Cook and OLB Jeremiah Moon, both under contract. We discuss that news during this show. Alex and I look ahead at what the Steelers total 2024 cash spending might ultimately be and the impact that might have in free agency signings this year. Will Steelers veteran CB Patrick Peterson stick on the roster through the start of the 2024 league year? Alex and I discuss his current situation along with a few recent comments that he has made. Alex and I then discuss a little bit of pre–NFL Scouting Combine news on this Monday and the impact it could have down the road on future combines and pro days.

February 16, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 91 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, which was recorded Thursday night, Alex Kozora and Josh Carney jump right into talking about the East-West Shrine Bowl, getting Josh’s perspective from the week in Dallas looking at some 2024 NFL Draft prospects. Josh went about highlighting some of his top prospects from the Shrine Bowl that could be fits for the Steelers in the 2024 NFL Draft, including Florida State cornerback Renardo Green and Ohio State linebacker Steele Chambers. Alex and Josh then talk about the recent report from The Draft Network regarding the Steelers meeting with West Virginia offensive lineman Doug Nester at the Shrine Bowl, and how he could potentially fit in Pittsburgh in the trenches. Following the talk about the East-West Shrine Bowl, Alex and Josh get into the recent coaching hires, giving additional thoughts on Steelers’ wide receivers coach Zach Azzani quarterbacks coach Tom Arth. Josh did a deeper dive on Azzanni following his hiring and gives his thoughts on what Azzanni brings to the table as the next receivers coach in Pittsburgh.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Monday Cuts, Salary Cap Update, Faulkner News, Fields Discussion & More

February 14, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 90 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, which was recorded Tuesday night, Alex Kozora and I get right to recapping and talking about the transactions that the Pittsburgh Steelers made on Monday. Those moves included the Steelers parting ways with QB Mitch Trubisky, OT Chukwuma Okorafor, and P Pressley Harvin III. We discuss the surprising timing of those three moves with them coming just one day after Super Bowl LVIII was played. Alex and I go over the salary cap savings produced by those three moves and then move on to talk about what those transactions might mean for DT Larry Ogunjobi, C Mason Cole, and CB Patrick Peterson. Will all three now survive their respective March roster bonus dates? We go deep into attempting to answer that question. With those three Monday moves now in the books, I provide a 2024 salary cap update related to the Steelers current Rule of 51. Alex and I then discuss ways the Steelers are likely to get cap compliant by the start of the new league year and how much space they might look to have entering free agency. Will the Steelers be very active in free agency this year? What is the most they are likely to spend on an unrestricted free agent from an APY standpoint? We attempt to answer those questions in this show as well. The Steelers waiver claim of LB Jeremiah Moon finally processed on Monday, so Alex and I discuss his unique situation and the shrewdness of the move. We also discuss the Monday news concerning the Steelers extending the contract of running backs coach Eddie Faulkner. Adam Schefter of ESPN talked about the Steelers and potential interest in Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields on Monday, and the internet has since gone wild as a result of him doing so. With Fields being a heavy social media topic again on Tuesday, Alex and I jump into another discussion concerning the possibility, feasibility, and plausibility of the Steelers potential trading for the Bears quarterback. We cover several aspects that need considering when it comes to trading for Fields. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 92-minute episode and we end it by answering several questions that we received from listeners of the show. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Super Bowl LVIII Recap, Steelers 2024 QB Room Specu-reports, Tom Arth Deep Dive & More

February 12, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 89 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to recapping Super Bowl LVIII that took place on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada and resulted in the Kansas City Chiefs being crowned World Champions again after beating the San Francisco 49ers. We discuss several aspects of that game and main takeaways from it with offseason now officially being underway. How important is the quarterback position in the NFL and especially when it comes to Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and the talent that he was surrounded by in 2023? We relate that topic to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the outlook for them at the quarterback position heading into the offseason. On Sunday morning there was a national media report concerning veteran quarterbacks Mason Rudolph and Ryan Tannehill. We break down those specu-reports and talk a little bit about contractual value when it comes to each player. Last week, Steelers team president Art Rooney II made some additional comments about the team potentially trading for a quarterback this offseason that Alex and I failed to recap during the Friday episode, so we make sure to rewind and do that in the Monday show. We also discuss what former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau told our own Scott Brown about Arthur Smith, the team's new offensive coordinator. Alex has now looked deeper into new Steelers QB coach Tom Arth since his hiring last week, so we go over what he now knows about him. We discuss what Arth brings to the Steelers quarterback room moving forward. Will the Steelers win another Super Bowl in the next 15 years? We briefly hit that topic during this show. We also go over the early Super Bowl odds for the 2024 season in relation to the Steelers. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 78-minute episode and we end it by answering several questions that we received from listeners of the show. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The annual NFL Honors ceremony took place on Thursday night and on the heels of that, Alex and I discuss Steelers OLB T.J. Watt finishing second to Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett for the 2023 NFL AP Defensive Player of the Year award.

Alex and I also talk about the other results and awards that included members of the Steelers organization. Steelers DT Cameron Heyward was announced as the 2023 Walter Payton Man of the Year on Thursday night, so Alex and I make sure to spend a lot of time recognizing that accomplishment.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Kozora Steelers Mock Draft, Aaron Freeman On Arthur Smith, Le'Veon Bell Comeback, & More

February 5, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 86 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about former Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell saying a few days ago on Snapchat that he plans to attempt a comeback this offseason. We talk about his chances of returning to the Steelers and more. Alex released his first full Steelers' mock draft of 2024 on Monday morning so as you would expect, we go over it pick-by-pick and discuss his choices and why he made them. We go into detail on several of the players that Alex mocked to the Steelers and more. This obviously makes for a long segment due to the number of picks we must review and discuss. In the middle of this show, Alex and I are once again joined by Aaron Freeman, who covers the Atlanta Falcons on the Locked on Falcons podcast. If you remember, we had Aaron on a few years ago ahead of the Steelers playing the Falcons in Atlanta during the 2022 regular season. In this interview, Alex and I get an overview of what Aaron knows about new Steelers OC Arthur Smith after his three years spent with the Falcons as their head coach. In total, we spend roughly 35 minutes talking to Aaron about Smith. If not already doing so, please follow Aaron on Twitter at @lockedonfalcons and thank him for appearing on the Friday show. You can also read some of Aaron’s work online here: https://www.sbnation.com/users/AaronFreeman#activity and listed to his podcast here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/locked-on-falcons-daily-podcast-on-the-atlanta-falcons/id1147245791 Missi Matthews conducted a one-on-one interview with Smith over the weekend, so Alex and I make sure to recap that short session during this Monday episode as well. After having Aaron on, Alex and I discuss how third wide receivers have been utilized in Smith's offense the last five seasons. That discussion is a result of a post I wrote thar includes data pulled from 2019-2023. The main takeaway from that discussion revolves around the Steelers being unlikely to add a notable unrestricted free agent wide receiver this coming offseason. We do, however, discuss the possibility of the Steelers adding a wide receiver at some point during the 2024 NFL Draft. How possible is it that the Steelers lands Chicago Bears CB Jaylon Johnson during the offseason? Alex and I discuss that question and topic later in this show on the heels of comments made by Johnson over the weekend while participating in the annual Pro Bowl games festivities.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers' Staff Plans, Arthur Smith Run/Pass Data, 2023 Outside Zone Stats, Center Prospects, & More

February 2, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 85 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to some coaching staff changes around the NFL that have taken place with the emphasis of that being on AFC North teams and teams on the 2024 schedule. With Arthur Smith now poised to officially be named the Steelers new offensive coordinator, Alex and I go over some key pass and running stats related to his five previous seasons in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons. We talk about the correlation between Smith having a strong running game for his passing game to work and why we believe the Steelers' running game needs to be well within the top 10 in 2024 for the quarterback play to show improvement. While the outside zone running scheme is not new to Pittsburgh, the team's use of it in 2023 was pretty much boom or bust. Alex and I go over some outside zone stats from 2023 related to the Steelers. Will center be a primary focus for the Steelers early in the 2024 NFL Draft? Alex and I discuss that position and briefly touch on the perceived top three center prospects in this year's draft class. We also discuss the Steelers’ two biggest positional needs on offense this offseason. We also discuss what type of wide receiver the Steelers might address during the offseason and Alex has one player in mind that played for Smith in Atlanta last season. Coming out of the Senior Bowl week there is one defensive lineman prospect that has our attention entering the weekend. We tell you who that player is and why we think the steelers will have serious interest in him during the pre-draft process.

January 31, 2024 - Season 14, Episode 84 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to getting some recent housekeeping news out of the way quickly when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers since our Monday show. The big news on Tuesday was the Steelers agreeing to terms with Arthur Smith as their new offensive coordinator. On the heels of that news, Alex and I spend more than hour discussing Smith. We talk about why Smith was likely hired to be the new offensive coordinator, his backstory and influences, his stint as the offensive coordinator with the Tennessee Titans and his past three seasons as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons. What kind of scheme and offense will Smith attempt to utilize in Pittsburgh? Alex and I go over what all he's done in the past and what carryover of that we expect to see with the Steelers. We spend a lot of time going over his love of the outside/wide zone and other run concepts he uses. We also go over several stats when it comes to personnel used, play action usage and shotgun rates. Smith conducted a coaching clinic video with North Carolina a few years ago and that got our attention on Tuesday. We recap everything that Smith had to say during that session and more. We attempt to paint a very full picture of what Smith is and isn’t along with the challenges he now faces in Pittsburgh as the Steelers' offensive coordinator. After discussing Smith's addition in-depth, Alex and recap the main talking points to come out of the annual end-of-the-season media session that Steelers team president Art Rooney II conducted on Monday.

In this Monday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers interviewing former Atlanta Falcons HC Arthur Smith for the open offensive coordinator job on the team's staff. We go deep into the NFL history of Smith during our conversation and discuss things that have stuck out with his past offenses when it comes to scheme and personnel usage. We also discuss the possibility of Smith ultimately being the Steelers' choice and whether we think more interviews might take place with the likes of Klint Kubiak of the San Francisco 49ers. The Steelers claimed LB Jeremiah Moon off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens over the weekend, so Alex and I discuss the details of that transaction and the uniqueness of it. Will the Steelers need to waive a player to make room for Moon? Alex quickly profiled Moon over the weekend, so we discuss what all he found out about the player and how he fits on the Steelers' roster this offseason. The NFL Conference Championship games took place on Sunday, so Alex and I give our thoughts on those two contests that included the Kansas City Chiefs beating the Ravens and the 49ers beating the Detroit Lions. we spend time discussing the two fourth decisions that Lions HC Dan Campbell made in the second half of his team's game.

The initial injury report for Week 18 was released by the Steelers on Tuesday so Alex and I make sure to cover that topic.

Watt was voted team MVP on Tuesday so we go over that news. We also discuss which players might wind up winning the remaining team awards that should be announced soon.

We discuss if that is a fair decision, Kazee appealing the discipline, and what we think the final outcome might be. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference Monday afternoon, so Alex and I tear through that. We discuss Tomlin’s decision to bench quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of Mason Rudolph this week and what the fallout from that decision may or may not be. We talk about the Steelers list of injured players heading into this week based on what Tomlin said on Monday. We make sure to highlight the status of starting QB Kenny Pickett and him having a slight chance of returning this week after missing the last two games with an ankle injury that required surgery. Tomlin talked about a myriad of other things on Monday, and we recap those main talking points in the middle of this show. Finally, Alex and I get to recapping the Steelers Saturday road loss to the Colts. We go over the poor play on both sides of the football and try to highlight the few positive performances. We discuss several plays and decisions from that loss to the colts along the way. Will the Steelers move on from P Pressley Harvin III this week? We discuss the possibility of that happening. Alex and I also discuss how we might see a few fresh faces on defense this week from the practice squad based on what Tomlin said on Monday. Several other minor topics not noted are also discussed in this 93-minute episode as well, and we finish it up by answering several listener questions. steelersdepot.com Learn more about your ad choices.

We jump right into our talk by going over key plays in the game on both sides of the football, the play of QB Mitch Trubisky and much more. We talk about how the Steelers still managed to be the game at the two-minute warning and how those final two plays of the drive were pretty much unforgivable. Should Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin have benched Trubisky in favor of backup Mason Rudolph? We discuss that question and also talk about who should start at quarterback in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts. The Steelers have a new dubious stat attached to them after losing to the 2-10 Patriots and we go over that.

In this Wednesday morning show, Alex and I get right to talking about the breaking news concerning Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson being shut down for the remainder of the 2023 season due to a shoulder injury.

The Terrible Podcast — Talking Steelers Injury Updates, Pebble Pickens, Other Tomlin Tuesday Talking Points, & Much More

November 8, 2023 - Season 14, Episode 46 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can. In this Wednesday morning show, Alex and I quickly talk about the early health outlook for the Pittsburgh Steelers ahead of their Week 10 Sunday home game against the Green Bay Packers. This is based on what head coach Mike Tomlin had to say on Tuesday during his press conference. That means we discuss the Sunday outlook for S Minkah Fitzpatrick in-depth. There are a few interesting trends to discuss ahead of the Sunday game against the Packers thanks to the Steelers announcing on Tuesday that they will be wearing their block numeral throwbacks for that contest. Tomlin’s weekly press conference provided quite a few juicy talking points for us to discuss during this Wednesday show. Those talking points include rookie tackle Broderick Jones likely remaining the starter on Sunday against the Packers on the right side. I have Alex look into his crystal ball when it comes to who he thinks will be the Steelers’ starting tackles come week One of the 2024 season. Tomlin also addressed the current situation with frustrated WR George Pickens on Tuesday, so we obviously discuss all that he had to say on that topic. We hone-in on Tomlin calling the Pickens’ frustration just a “pebble in his shoe” right now. We discuss how Tomlin handled that topic with the media on Tuesday. Tomlin also talked about QB Kenny Pickett, OC Matt Canada, CB Joey Porter Jr., the inside linebacker position, and running back playing time on Tuesday so we make sure to address all of those talking pints thoroughly in this show as well.

In this Monday morning show, Alex and I quickly talk about the game that Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Dobbs had on Sunday. Every team in the AFC North won in Week Nine so Alex and I make sure to go over the state of that division entering Week 10. The Pittsburgh Steelers made a few transactions on Monday morning, so we discuss that news in addition to a few fines that NFL handed down to players over the weekend related to Week Eight action. Is Steelers WR George Pickens a distraction right now due to his attitude? Is he going to be a problem for the team moving forward and will he ultimately see a second contract in Pittsburgh? Alex and I dive into all of the questions and more related to Pickens. We have now hit the 20-game mark for Steelers QB Kenny Pickett, so Alex and I take time in this episode to evaluate him and go over the good, bad, and ugly related to his overall play so far. We attempt to rank Pickett league-wide as part of an exercise and look ahead at what is next for him as he attempts to show he can become a long-term franchise quarterback in Pittsburgh.
