Season 8, Episode 75 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the Pittsburgh Steelers decision to promote quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner to offensive coordinator. We discuss what changes Fichtner might make to the offense and the two primary things he should probably focus on improving right away
Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell wasn’t great this past season on 1st and 10 carries so David and I go over those stats and talk about where the blame potentially lies. We also talk about Bell’s recent tardiness to the team’s final walkthrough practice on Friday as well as to Sunday’s playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With the franchise tag deadline coming soon, David and I discuss if Bell it’s still worth the tag based on everything we discussed about him earlier in the show.
The Steelers will have quite a few business-related decisions to make during the early portion of the offseason in order to get themselves in salary cap compliance. We go over what the Steelers salary cap situation looks like right now and what ways they will likely go about fixing it in the coming weeks.
The Conference Championship games will take place on Sunday, so David and I quickly preview those contests and predict the outcomes of both.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
