Season 9, Episode 116 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Tuesday show, Alex Kozora and I immediately talk about the start of the second week of OTAs for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Mike Clay of ESPN.com recently released some early stat projections for the 2019 season so Alex and I spend quite a bit of time going over those numbers for several players and if we think they are too high, too low or just right.
When Alex and I get to the projections of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, we spend some extra time reviewing his 2018 seasons and areas he needs to improve in in 2019.
There’s been a lot of talk so far about the Steelers possibly using running backs James Conner and Jaylen Samuels in the same backfield quite a bit in 2019 so Alex and I spend a little extra time on that topic. We go over a few recent comments made by former Steelers outside linebacker coach Joey Porter on Roethlisberger, rookie inside linebacker Devin Bush and the possibility of the Steelers using Conner and Samuels in the same backfield.
Will the Steelers have a top 5 offense in 2019? Alex and I discuss that topic along with the reasons given by former NFL player Willie McGinest as to why he thinks the Steelers offense won’t be a top 5 unit in 2019.
Alex and I cover a few more items and then proceed to answer a few listener emails we have received recently to close out this episode.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
