Season 9, Episode 60 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to recapping some of what Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had to say on Thursday during his press conference.
Will the Steelers workout any kickers and sign a new one prior to the start of Wednesday’s practice? We discuss what all has transpired in that department early in the show.
We also go over the Steelers injury situation as they start preparations to play the New England Patriots this coming Sunday at Heinz Field.
In the second part of this show we are joined once again by Dr. Melanie Friedlander, a California-based surgeon and Steelers fan who has contributed information about NFL injuries for Steelers Depot for the last several years. Melanie helps Alex and I break down the Sunday rib injury suffered by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and what all transpired after he returned to the field from the locker after receiving x-rays and pain medicine.
We also go over how Tomlin handled the Roethlisberger situation after he returned to the field along with parsing several of his quotes from his Tuesday press conference. Melanie also gives us some of her expert opinions on Steelers running back James Conner, who is currently attempting to battle back from an ankle injury.
If not already doing so, please make sure you are following Dr. Friedlander on Twitter at @GirlSurgeon.
After mopping up some between interview talking points, Alex and I are then joined on the show once again by Ben Volin, who covers the Patriots for the Boston Globe. Ben helps us preview the Steelers week 15 game between the Steelers and Patriots on both sides of the football in addition to telling us how this year’s New England team ranks against previous ones. Ben gives us his prediction for Sundays game to close out the interview.
