Episode #29 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and I gotta feelin\’…Pittsburgh\’s going to the Super Bowl! Episode 29 is a long one, loyal listeners. And how can it not be? It\’s not every year you get to the Super Bowl, but it is the third time in the last six for the Steelers and their fans, following their 24-19 win over the New York Jets. It should be a great matchup, with the Steelers and Green Bay Packers getting together February 6th in Dallas. Eat your heart out Jerry Jones.
In Part 1 of Episode 29 we take a deep breath and reflect on another Super Bowl and how lucky we are as Steelers fans. Lots of good stories and memories. David (Pittsburgh) gives a recap of the scene was like at Heinz Field Sunday night and then Dave (Florida) takes a look at the injury situation and what the outlook is for Maurkice Pouncey.
In Part 2 we take a look at Florida Dave\’s fantastic picks so far in the playoffs and discuss the opening line for the Big Game which has the Steelers as 2.5 point underdogs. We also give a little lesson as to how lines are set for those who don\’t know. Then, we get into Sunday\’s game and look at the Steelers\’ dominating first half. Things probably couldn\’t have gone too much better. But, we also talk about the Jets\’ last second field goal and Florida Dave\’s (correct) concern with the Jets getting the ball to start the second half.
In Part 3 we get into the Steelers lack of offensive production in the second half and get into the x\’ & o\’s of how and why the Jets were able to make a game of it. At the end, Tomlin & Arians get a lot of credit. As Tomlin said “we\’re not gonna play not too lose,” and they didn\’t. Ben and the offense were able to convert two first downs on their last possession to ice the game. We review, in detail, all the decision and all the results. Good hardcore football analysis. We close with a look at All-Pro honors accorded two Steelers.
