Season 2, Episode 113 of The Terrible Podcast is up and David Todd and wrap up the loose ends reported from the Pittsburgh Steelers second OTA session of 2012 that wrapped up on Thursday.
David and I talk more about the hopeful emergence of Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown this season and whether or not the coaches are really hoping that one of the two can take away the starting job from Keenan Lewis, who sits atop of the depth chart right now. David ask me if I think Ryan Mundy can supplant Ryan Clark at free safety this year and I give my thoughts on that.
Ben Roethlisberger was back in the spot-light this week with his comments on the new offense and how the fans are now getting their wish that the offense will run the ball more this season. We look at this from several angles and include in the discussion several run/pass ratios from previous years in addition. We discuss what might be the reasoning behind the constant jabs that the Steelers quarterback continues to make.
Tight end Heath Miller figures to be more involved in the passing game this year and we talk just a little about that before talking about the surprise we got this week as Kordell Stewart was back in town to formally announce his retirement. We find the timing odd and wonder if Stewart might have had a few ulterior motives in doing it outside of needing closure. David proceeds to re-live a quick play that Stewart made against the Baltimore Ravens that is forever etched in his mind.
It was announced on Thursday that Hines Ward has been hired by NBC and we give our two cents on that. Antonio Brown made it known on Thursday that he has no plans to miss the 2013 OTA sessions right now as he his scheduled to be in the same situation as Mike Wallace is right now. We discuss that as well as the recent comments made by Ike Taylor after he spent last weekend in Las Vegas with Wallace.
We close the show by answering a couple of reader emails that are related to training camp plans and betting before closing things out for this week.
