Season 7, Episode 71 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers getting trounced by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game in Foxborough.
As you can probably imagine, David and I have a lot of negatives to talk about during this show and it starts with us discussing the play on the defensive side of the football. The Steelers defense had no answers for the Patriots passing game as quarterback Tom Brady easily deciphered their scheme pre-snap and got his offense in several high percentage plays.
We talk about the lack of pressure the Steelers front had and wonder what the average time to throw Brady registered. The Patriots wide receivers were wide open most of the game and that was very disturbing to see.
The Steelers offense certainly isn’t off the hook as the young wide receivers failed to make big plays throughout the game. We talk about how the Patriots defense effectively limited wide receiver Antonio Brown and how the loss of running back Le’Veon Bell to a groin injury early on certainly didn’t help matters.
We discuss what happened on the Brady fumble and the subsequent review after it was challenged.
After spending most of this episode breaking down the game, David and I take a quick look ahead at draft needs and discuss the overall state of the team heading into the offseason. We’ll certainly expand on those topics in upcoming episodes this week.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
