The Terrible Podcast – Talking Injuries, Depth Chart Changes, Remaining Roster Battles & More Episode

Steelers Podcast

Season 4, Episode 8 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I start by updating who is back practicing and the situation with both Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth as it relates to the final 53 man roster.

We look at a few of the remaining roster battles that have yet to be decided and zero in on Baron Batch, Jonathan Dwyer, DaMon Cromartie-Smith, Josh Victorian and Isaiah Green to name a few.

A new depth chart was released on Wednesday so that gets a little bit of our attention and David fills us in on what he observed at practice on Wednesday. David also talked to Jack Bicknell Jr. and Justin Brown recently, so we discuss a few things each had to say.

We finally get around to answering a few emails as well at the end of the show.

As always, there are a few other talking points mixed in that I did not highlight here in the recap.

    When trying to kick a long field goal, having it blocked isn’t really that much more of a concern. As you kick farther obviously you have to kick harder, and as you kick harder the optimal angle of the kick does decrease. But it doesn’t decrease all that much. At 60 yards you’re talking about an optimal angle of 40 degrees. That means the height at the los is about 18 feet. Blocks are more about protection losing the battle and badly aimed kicks (too low). It’s probably more likely that a kick is going to be badly aimed when so much effort is going into getting distance, but missing the uprights and kicking too high (making the ball fall short) are just as much a concern.

    I just don’t understand why people are so convinced that Curtis Brown is a lock to make the roster. He hasn’t done anything other than get burnt or injured the whole time he’s been here. He’s been a good special teamer but that’s it. If he is somehow considered a lock, he shouldn’t be. I think they need to give an equal look at all our guys in the secondary and see who really steps up. Maybe it will be Brown, but he has to prove it. I think Ryan Steed should get some looks. He looked fundamentally sound, with aggressiveness and some ball skills in his college film, and he played well in the first preseason game with limited snaps. Give this guy a good look. We need to quit wasting time on players that consistently show that they aren’t a good fit for us and/or aren’t NFL material. If Brown is legit, he must PROVE it, he should not be a “lock” to make the roster…
