Season 11, Episode 15 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to talking about the Thursday night game that got the 2020 NFL season underway. Are the Houston Texans really as bad as they looked Thursday night? Will they go 0-4 to start the season? We discuss that and how great that NFL football is now back.
There is a lot of news to recap in this show. Alex and I talk about the Thursday injury report released by the Pittsburgh Steelers and what it means. We also go over the first Week 1 injury report that was released by the New York Giants, who will host the Steelers Monday night.
Steelers coordinators Randy Fichtner and Keith Butler both talked to the media on Thursday as did tackle Zach Banner and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. We recap all the talking points to come out of those press conferences and more.
I posted my annual NFL season predictions on Thursday and so Alex and I review the optimism I have regarding the Steelers. We go over the 14 teams I have making the 2020 playoffs and more. Alex will have his predictions on Monday when we fully preview the game against the Giants.
The details related to the contract extension signed last weekend by Cameron Heyward are now in so Alex and I go over those numbers. We also talk about the new practice squad promotion rules and what days it looks like those will happen on.
With more NFL Week 1 action on tap, Alex and I give our picks of all games against the spread. We’ll have our picks and score predictions for the Steelers game versus the Giants on Monday.
Also during this show, 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 up to speed on what all has transpired with the Browns this past offseason. Scott also answers several questions we have about the 2020 Browns and lets us know what kind of season he expects Cleveland to have with first-year head coach Kevin Stefanski now calling the shots. Scott closes his interview out by giving his thoughts on the AFC North division in 2020 and what he expects to happen with the Steelers.
