Season 6, Episode 55 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this show, David Todd and I get right to it discussing the situation with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as it relates to the concussion he apparently suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Roethlisberger has now said that he has been cleared to return to practice as of Wednesday morning and we go over the chain of comments that preceded that.
We quickly cover the rest of Steelers injuries before moving on to talk about what head coach Mike Tomlin had to say Tuesday during his press conference. We start that segment off by discussing Tomlin’s comments related to possible changes in the Steelers secondary this coming Sunday that could include cornerback Brandon Boykin playing in the slot in the team’s sub package defense.
We also discuss whether or not fellow cornerback Antwon Blake will be benched entirely this coming weekend and whether or not Ross Cockrell will start opposite William Gay in the team’s base defense.
Tomlin also had a few interesting things to say about timeouts on Tuesday, so we discuss that in addition to him further explaining his reasoning for kicking the field goal late in the game on fourth down as opposed to going for a touchdown.
David and read a few emails and talk defense in the next segment before finally welcoming back to the show Phil Wilson, who covers the Indianapolis Colts for Scout.com. As usual, Phil gives his straight forward insight on the Colts heading into Sunday night’s game against the Steelers and that includes us getting his thoughts on their offense and defense. Phil seems to think the Steelers will easily dispose of the Colts in this game and he tells us why he feels that way.

As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
