Season 9, Episode 12 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I get right to look at the Pittsburgh Steelers injury situation once again as the team prepares for their third preseason game Saturday at Heinz Field against the Tennessee Titans. This includes us recapping what Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert had to say during a Tuesday interview about the expected heath of the tight end group come the start of the regular season.
Speaking of Colbert, David and I discuss what the main rubs on him will be after the 2018 season is over should the Steelers fail to make it to this year’s Super Bowl.
In the second half of this episode David and I are joined once again by former Steelers defensive lineman Chris Hoke. Hoke updates us on how his post-football life is going and gives us his insight on what all goes into the preparation for the first two preseason games from a planning standpoint.
Hoke shares his thoughts on this year’s Steelers defense with us in addition to a few other observations he has about the 2018 team. We also get him to name one strength and one weakness of Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler.
If you’re not already doing so, please make sure you are following Hoke on Twitter at @hokiebro76 and please let him know you heard him on today’s show.
David and I close out this episode by talking about the one-game suspension handed down to Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers on Tuesday and what that means for him. We also discuss the Baltimore Ravens losing cornerback Jimmy Smith for the first four games of the 2018 regular season to a suspension.
Colbert had a few things to say Tuesday about a few undrafted rookies on the 90-man roster so we recap those quotes for you.
Finally, we discuss a recent national prediction by an NFL analyst that includes him thinking the Steelers will make it to this year’s Super Bowl.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
