The Terrible Podcast – Steelers Bengals Game Recap & Talking End Of Season Episode

Steelers Podcast

Season 3, Episode 59 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I get right after it as we talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-10 loss at Heinz Field Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals that effectively ended their season. There is a lot to talk about and we cover the offense, the defense, Ben Roethlisberger, Todd Haley, the play of the young cornerbacks plus much more. We also talk about the decision made by Mike Tomlin to send out Shaun Suisham to attempt his career long with the season hanging in the balance.

Now that we know that there will be no playoffs we get into the early stages of looking at the roster and who might not be around next season. We of course will have future episodes dedicated to this topic but we wanted to hit on a few key names to start with. We also look at the injuries coming out of the Bengals game and how the roster might be shaken up this coming week with a few transactions. The game against the Cleveland Browns will be an opportunity to get some young players involved for sure.

Merry Christmas and we will be back on Wednesday.

    I think you’ve both overlooked crucial part of scheme being or not being a fit other then the QB. The receivers and how they impact choice of plays.

    Here are 2 options and what they need to work

    1) Hailey’s Cardinals offense, won with 3-5 step drops, highly accurate QB play throwing into tight windows and BIG PHYSICAL RECEIVERS who can win at the point of the catch despite not being very fast and make yards after contact. Do not use deceptive route combinations but win with physical play.

    Look at the receivers Hailey Won with, Fitz, Bolden, Bowe, All Huge jump ball/slant guys that look nothing like the steelers receivers

    Neither fit our personel not a QB, not at receiver

    2)Patriots style short game – uses speed, quickness, match ups and deception and alot of play action passing to throw short to largely wide open receivers behind the line of scrimmage who can make people miss in the open field. Depends on strong arm QB to get the ball out fast to receivers behind the line and quickly come out of play action and complete before the defense has a chance to react and depends more on quickness after the catch then exceptional catching/high pointing ability.

    Fits all our personnel better.

    Right now we’re trying to play a big receiver’s passing scheme with small receivers and trying to run a touch passing game with a QB that throws darts.

    Not to mention using Big, Slow, Power backs in a league where it’s been shown that small compact multi-dimentional backs are better fits for the modern passing game.


    Something you havn’t usually seen from Steelers is inconsistent Philosophy right now none of our phylosophy fits with the personel on the field and vice versa.


    Here’s the deal – When you have a set-up where your QB absolutely loves his offensive coordinator and vice versa, you NEVER LET HIM GO! How many super bowls did Arians get us to with Ben? How many super bowls do you think Haley can get us to with Ben? Something stinks and I don’t sense the aroma getting any sweeter with Haley. Pushing Arians out was a mistake. Ben still talks to the guy over the phone. I mean, come on. Yes, Arians had a short slump there for a while, but we should have kept him around. Almost everyone wished for a new offensive coordinator. Well, like the saying goes, watch what you wish for. You just might get it.
