Season 9, Episode 123 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I first discuss the players who have worn No. 79 for the Pittsburgh Steelers with there now being 79 days remaining before the start of the team’s 2019 regular season.
With the Steelers annual offseason practices now completed, the team is still likely to add players to their roster between now and the start of the regular season and there’s a good chance one or two such players might ultimately be on the team’s Week 1 53-man roster. Alex and I discuss the recent history of the Steelers related to that topic and which positions stand the best shot of late offseason additions occurring.
Alex spent time this week examining the Steelers kickoff returns from the 2018 season so we review his findings and suggestions as to what needs to be fixed in that phase of special teams this upcoming season.
We move on to talk a little bit more about Steelers safety Marcus Allen potentially being the primary dimebacker in 2019 based on recent comments that he made.
Midway through this episode, Alex and I are joined once again by Scott Petrak, who covers the Cleveland Browns for The Chronicle-Telegram and Medina Gazette. Scott brings us both up to date on the Browns offseason to date, expectations for the 2019 season and much more. We spend roughly 30 minutes with Scott talking about the Browns offense, defense, new additions and much, much more.

After finishing up with Scott, Alex and I review a few things he told us. We also discuss where we both currently stand in regard to the Browns 2019 win total. We close things out by talking some about running back success rates and the use of analytics by teams in the AFC North division.
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.
