Season 10, Episode 31 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to discussing the Pittsburgh Steelers bye week injury updates provided by head coach Mike Tomlin on Wednesday. We go over who on that long list of injured players might be able to play after the bye week against the Miami Dolphins.
Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has now exited concussion protocol and he’ll be back starting again after the bye. We discuss why that is the right decision.
The Steelers defense has given us some optimism concerning the team’s chances of making the playoffs this season following a 1-4 start. We look at the ANY/A stat of the Steelers 2019 defense through six games and compare it to previous teams coached by Tomlin. We also look at where that stat should be after 12 games played.
We also look at the Steelers offensive ANY/A stat through six games as well as the team’s deep passing stats and explosive play numbers. We explain why it’s imperative for both of those to improve moving forward into the final 10 games.
Will and should Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler lose his job regardless if this year’s team makes the postseason? We discuss that topic and our outlook for the 2019 Steelers the remainder of the season with the bye week now upon us.
Steelers kicker Chris Boswell has had a great 2019 season to date so we tip our caps to him during this show and discuss how he might be called upon to win a game or two in the next six weeks.
While there is no Steelers game to pick this weekend, Alex and I still go through the full slate of other Week 7 NFL games and make our picks against the spreads provided by MyBookie.ag.
