Season 8, Episode 33 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, Alex Kozora sits in for David Todd and we get right to looking at the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday injury report and what it might ultimately mean for Sunday’s road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Steelers might have outside linebacker James Harrison and wide receiver Eli Rogers both back in helmets on Sunday and if ultimately happens, Alex and I discuss how both players might be used against the Chiefs. The Steelers loss in Week 5 to the Jacksonville Jaguars was ugly and Alex chimes in with his final thoughts of that game. We talk about whether or not the Steelers run defense ranking is a true reflection of what has happened through the first five weeks and also discuss the problems the Steelers offense has had to start the 2017 season. After finally getting the Steelers loss to Jaguars behind us, Alex and I move on to breaking down the Steelers Week 6 road game against the Chiefs. We discuss what the Steelers need to do on both sides of the football to win this game. Additionally, we talk about the health of the Chiefs entering Sundays game. Is Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith for real right now? We go over a few stats and rankings of his through the first five weeks of the season.

Season 8, Episode 32 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I get right to giving our final thoughts on the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and our concern level heading into the team’s Week 6 road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. We move on to talk more about what’s not right with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger so far this season and throw out a few changes on offense that could potentially get him back on track again. Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers will likely return to the field on Sunday after being benched the last two games so David and I discuss how he and rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster might ultimately be used on Sunday against the Chiefs. We wrap up the first segment by talking a little bit about what Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had to say during his Tuesday press conference and check in quickly with what the Cleveland Browns are currently doing at the quarterback position. In the second half of the show, David and I are joined once again by Adam Teicher, who covers the Chiefs for ESPN.com. As usual, we get the thoughts of our guest on the upcoming game and Adam gives his insights on the Chiefs offensive, defensive and special teams units along with what he things might happen Sunday in Kansas City.

Season 8, Episode 31 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to breaking down the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. We start things off by trying to break the Steelers 30-9 loss to the Jaguars into three game parts and go from there. We move on to talking about each of the five interceptions that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw during Sunday’s game. The Steelers were 0-3 inside the red zone on Sunday and because of that, David and I look at the play calling deep inside the Jaguars end of the field and most notably during their sixth offensive possession of the game, their final one before Roethlisberger’s wheels came off. We talk about what we would like to see the Steelers offense do more of and less of moving forward into the season. We save some time to talk about the play of the Steelers defense on Sunday and how that unit’s wheels came off during the Jaguars first possession of the fourth quarter, which included that drive ending with a field goal after a long string of nothing but running plays. Should Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley be fired right now? What about if the Steelers lose their next three games before the bye week? We discuss both of those topics along with talking about where we both are right now on the “concern meter” entering Week 6.

Season 8, Episode 30 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to giving our final thoughts on the mini drama the Pittsburgh Steelers had this past week that centered around the Sunday sideline antics of wide receiver Antonio Brown. The Steelers look like they’re a very healthy team right now ahead of their Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. We go over the team’s Thursday injury report and look at the possibility of the Steelers having all 22 intended starters on the field this Sunday for the first time since Week 2 of the 2014 season. We move on to give you a full breakdown and preview of the Steelers Sunday home game against the Jaguars. We look at how both defenses have played against the run this season. We also look at the way the Jaguars pass defense has played this season and what that may or may not mean for Brown on Sunday. We go over what the Jaguars do well on offense and what that unit will need to do Sunday at Heinz Field to give them a chance to win the game. We start closing out this Friday show with a quick recap of the Thursday night game between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and that includes focusing in on some clock management issues that happened late in that contest. As usual, we close out this Friday show with our picks against the spread for all the Week 5 NFL games. Will the Steelers beat the Jaguars at home and cover the spread? We let you know by giving you our final score predictions. As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.

Season 8, Episode 29 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I get right to going over the Sunday sideline tantrum of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. We discuss the comments quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, head coach Mike Tomlin and former safety Ryan Clark made on Tuesday about Brown’s actions and if they were warranted. We talk a little more about the play that got Brown fired up and if we’ll see it again in the near future with so much discussion about it right now. Tomlin didn’t give much of an injury recap on Tuesday during his weekly press conference but it was enough of one to allow David and I to look ahead to the team’s potential Week 5 inactive list. Will wide receiver Eli Rogers dress against the Jaguars after being inactive in Week 4? Will outside linebacker James Harrison be a healthy scratch this week? We discuss those topics. Rookie cornerback Cameron Sutton is currently on schedule to come off the team’s Reserve/Injured list after Week 8 so David and I take a peek ahead at which player might be at risk of losing his roster spot down the road. David and I address a lengthy email we received from a listener who had questions about the play of Roethlisberger and Tomlin’s coaching. We also discuss the chances of Roethlisberger retiring after the season is over. The Steelers will play the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5 so ahead of that game we have Ryan O'Halloran on the show to discuss the contest. Ryan covers the Jaguars for the Florida Times-Union and as usual we get his thoughts on Jacksonville’s offense, defense, special teams and injury situation ahead of Sunday’s game. If you are not already doing so, make sure to follow Ryan on Twitter at @ryanohalloran and read his work online at Jacksonville.com. We close this show out with some final thoughts on the Steelers 3-1 start and their win over the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday.

Season 8, Episode 28 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to going over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday road win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week4. Before we get to thoroughly breaking down Sunday’s win over the Ravens, however, we go over the Steelers pregame inactive list and talk about why outside linebacker James Harrison was on it and if we’ll see him on it again in future weeks. The Steelers got their running game on track Sunday against the Ravens so David and I talk about that in addition to the overall play of the offense. We talk about the key penalties the offense had and if too many runs were called on first downs throughout the game. We talk about Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger missing a wide-open Antonio Brown in the first half and break down that play. We also talk about how Roethlisberger is still having problems connecting with his deep passes and how the offense still isn’t in a rhythm. Outside of a few big runs allowed on Sunday, the Steelers defense played well against the Ravens. We discuss the solid play by inside linebacker Ryan Shazier and a few other players on Sunday and how the Ravens offense missed on a few key plays in the game. We close things out by taking an overall look at the 3-1 Steelers as they now prepare to host the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday at Heinz Field.

Season 8, Episode 27 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to going over the Pittsburgh Steelers injury report that was released on Friday. Will wide receiver Justin Hunter get a helmet this week? Will wide receiver Martavis Bryant be down? We discuss all those topics and try to predict the team’s seven inactives for Sunday’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers Week 3 opponent, the Chicago Bears, were blown out by the Green Bay Packers Thursday night so we talk about that and how it makes last Sunday’s loss look even worse. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger talked this past week about the overtime coin-toss and how the plan was to let the Bears have the football first if they had been given the choice. We discuss that decision. We move on to talk about what else Roethlisberger had to say this past week and dig a little deeper into his passing distance stats so far this season. We toss around some math questions that hopefully a few of our listeners have thoughts on. In the middle of this Friday show we fully preview the Steelers Sunday game against the Ravens on both sides of the football for both teams. The Ravens figure to be without the services of one key defensive player on Sunday so we talk about how the Steelers offense should be able to exploit that. We talk about the Steelers rushing attack so far this season by personnel and what we think the offense needs to do Sunday to finally get on track. We end this Friday show the way we always do with our picks against the spread for all the Week 4 NFL games. As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.

Season 8, Episode 26 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I get right to reviewing more information that has surfaced concerning what happened Sunday during the National Anthem as well as the events that led up to it. We discuss the multiple press conferences the Pittsburgh Steelers have had since our Monday show and try to put a bow on the subject for now. After spending a good portion of his Tuesday press conference answer questions about what happened ahead of Sunday’s game, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin finally delivered an injury status report so David and I spend a little time discussing the unhealthy players and their potential statuses for Sunday’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens. We move on to give some of our final thoughts on the Steelers Sunday loss to the Chicago Bears and that includes talking about the failure to stop the run. We also talk about the poor showing the Steelers offense had on Sunday and how quarterback Ben Roethlisberger might be forcing the football to wide receiver Antonio Brown a little too much. The Steelers offense has had a problem so far this season keeping themselves out of third and long situations so David and I discuss that topic and that includes throwing in a few stats. In the second half of the show we have our Tuesday interview with John Eisenberg, who covers the Ravens for the team’s official website. As usual, John gives us the current 411 on the Ravens and helps us preview Sunday’s game. He also gives us his prediction for the Week 4 game to close out the interview.

Season 8, Episode 25 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to reviewing the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday road loss to the Chicago Bears and we start with talking about the team’s controversial decision to not participate in the pre-game national anthem. We go over the comments made by Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin as to why the team decided not to participate in the national anthem and where all but one player was during it. We also talk about tackle Alejandro Villanueva and his decision to participate in the national anthem and if he “broke ranks” in doing so. We go over Tomlin’s comments on Villanueva’s decision in addition to what quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s and outside linebacker James Harrison’s thoughts on that subject. After thoroughly discussing what happened prior to the Steelers game against the Bears, David and I turn attention to what actually happened during the game. We discuss the blocked field goal at the end of the half for starters. We move on to discuss the rest of the game and that includes the play of both the offense and defense. We look closely at the play of Roethlisberger on Sunday in addition to how running back Le’Veon Bell performed on his 15 carries. As far as the play of the Steelers defense on Sunday goes, David and I discuss how that unit had a lot of problems stopping the Bears running game and especially when they ran outside zone stretch plays. We discuss the several missed tackles, poor angles and fills in-depth. We also make sure to go over what happened in overtime that led to the Bears winning the game.

Tomlin had a lot to say concerning pass interference penalties and the lack of usage of outside linebacker James Harrison against the Minnesota Vikings so we discuss those topics in addition to a few things that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had to say during his Tuesday morning interview. Will Harrison wind up on the Steelers inactive list in Week 3? We explore that topic and go over the list of first career touchdowns scored courtesy of Roethlisberger. We talk about the play of running back Le’Veon Bell on Sunday against the Vikings and if we’re worried about the start to the season that tackle Alejandro Villanueva has had.

Season 8, Episode 22 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday home win over the Minnesota Vikings after first acknowledging a few of our listeners from outside the United states. We talk about the team’s injury report coming out of Sundays game as well as a few snap counts to get things going. There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to the Steelers-Vikings game and we focus early on the deep passing by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and how and why he decided to take as many shots as he did. Only a few Steelers offensive players had above average play on Sunday and we discuss that side of the football. The defense, however, had at least one in defensive end Cameron Heyward. We talk about a few things that went right and wrong on defense for the Steelers against the Vikings and where some blame likely needs to be pointed. As you would expect, David took issue with Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin deciding not to kick a field goal in the fourth quarter. We discuss the few things that transpired ahead of that decision. We also discuss the Vikings fake punt along with a few other play calls and key moments in Sunday’s game. In the final quarter of the show, David and I discuss what happened Sunday with Miami Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons.

Season 8, Episode 21 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the Pittsburgh Steelers injury situation entering the team’s Friday practice. Will the Steelers need to sign a safety to the 53-man roster on Saturday? We discuss that topic to get things rolling.

Season 8, Episode 20 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing what Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had to say during his Tuesday press conference when it comes to the health of his team entering Week 2 of the regular season. While the news about the bicep injury suffered by Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt is positive, David and I both think there’s still a good chance he misses at least the Week 2 game against the Minnesota Vikings and possibly the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears as well. We go over the recent roster shuffling that has taken place that has resulted in linebacker Steven Johnson returning to the 53-man unit and linebacker L.J. Fort landing on the practice squad. David and I give our final thoughts on the Steelers Week 1 win over the Cleveland Browns and we break down the play of several individual players in that contest. We talk about the usage of linebacker James Harrison moving forward and how the offense didn’t have a running back on the field for nine plays against the Browns. While we will preview the upcoming game against the Vikings on Friday, David and I give you some of our early thoughts on a few matchups we’re likely to see Sunday at Heinz Field. David and I end this show by talking about a few other noteworthy items from around the NFL.

Season 8, Episode 19 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday road win over the Cleveland Browns to open the 2017 season. David and I discuss the game from top to bottom and look at the play on both sides of the football in addition to talking about the bicep injury that defensive end Stephon Tuitt suffered early in the contest and what the fallout from that might be. The Steelers committed way too many penalties against the Browns and David and I talk about how the ones on offense really put that unit behind the chains way too many times. We also talk about the several defensive penalties the Steelers had and wonder how many were deserving and how many will ultimately result in fines. Wide receiver Antonio Brown really took over Sundays game so we spend some time talking about his day in Cleveland. After recapping the Steelers Sunday win over the Browns, David and I give our overarching thoughts on the team as they enter Week 2. We also discuss what else happened in the AFC North on Sunday. As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
