The Terrible Podcast – Talking Listeners Overrated/Underrated Steelers Players, Bye Week Fairness & More Episode

Steelers Podcast

Season 3, Episode 114 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I go over several overrated and underrated Pittsburgh Steelers players that our listeners sent along to us at our request last week. A few names that create good discussion are former Steelers linebacker David Little and quarterback Mike Kruczek. We also talk about whether or not center Maurkice Pouncey is overrated at this point of his career as well. Thanks for all of the great emails.

In addition, a few of you included questions pertaining to linebacker Jason Worilds, the playing surface at Heinz Field and the fairness of the bye week process, so we tackle all of those topics.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is spectacular deep in his own end of the field and we discuss my findings related to that as well as a few other recent topics floating around the league currently.

As always, thanks for listening and don\’t forget to call or email with questions or comments and please pass us along to your friends!

The new message hotline is (814) 429-YINZ.

    As always, great show guys.
    Speaking of underated players, you may want to list a player that was jettisoned before the 1970 season ( yes there was Steeler football prior to 1970), WR, Roy Jefferson.

    I guess after one season, Noll had enough of his magnificence. Reports were he was a major pain in the *ss, but here are his numbers for 1968 & 1969, both 14 game seasons:

    1968: 58 rec/ 1074 yards/ 18.5 average/ 11 TDs
    1969: 67 rec/1079 yards/ 16.1 average/ 9 TDs

    Keep in mind, the Steelers in those two years was the worst team in the NFL, with two not real good QBs, Shiner and Nix driving the bus . Granted those numbers were inflated by all of the garbage time he played in, with the team being hopelessly behind most of the time, but even still, those are some decent numbers.

    Here are his career numbers:
    1965-1976: 451 rec/ 7535 yards/ 16.7 average/ 52 TDs. Certainly not Hall numbers, but respectable none the less.

    I really believe Ike Taylor doesn’t receive the proper accolades to match his play. He isn’t an INT machine (the hands let him down) but he is easily one of the best all around corners in the league and maybe 3rd all time in Steeler history. He is a physical blanket to the top receiver each week and has been for years. His physical play and training regime is of legend. In my opinion he is the most underrated Steeler of all time.
