Season 9, Episode 97 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Tuesday show, Alex Kozora and I immediately talk some more about West Virginia linebacker David Long Jr. now that he’s watched more tape of him. We compare Long to Michigan linebacker Devin Bush and talk some about him possibly being the shortest linebacker drafted in the first round since 2006.
After discussing a few linebacker prospects, Alex and I discuss the multiple talking points provided by Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin the last few days while at the annual league meetings in Phoenix, Arizona. We discuss Steelers cornerback Artie Burns, the right tackle spot, Tomlin’s comments on the offseason losses of wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell and more.
Colbert’s free agency comments are also discussed and we go over where the team currently is in relation to the salary cap. Steelers players, both past and present, have recently come to the defense of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger so Alex and I discuss that topic briefly.
We tell you where Colbert is on Tuesday and where he hasn’t been spotted the last few days and if that holds any significance. We also discuss the Oakland Raiders signing former Steelers quarterback Landry Jones on Tuesday.
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski recently retired so Alex and I address that topic and if he’ll be a first-ballot Hall of Famer once eligible.
A few rule changes are being voted on by NFL owners this year and Alex and I discuss the 4th and 15 proposal that would potentially replace onside kicks late in games.
As usual, we close this episode by answering several emails we have received from listeners over the course of the last several days.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
