The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Bengals Recap, Garvin Hit, Woodley Calf Injury & More Episode


Season 4, Episode 58 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I go over the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-20 Sunday win over the Cincinnati Bengals with a fine tooth comb. We tell you what we liked, what we didn’t like and who we thought played well.

The hit by linebacker Terence Garvin on punter Kevin Huber is a big talking point right now and we let you know whether or not we think he will be fined for it. In addition to talking about the game, we are again forced to talk about LaMarr Woodley and his future thanks to him suffering another calf injury Sunday night. This of course bleeds over into talk about Jason Worilds once again. We have a feeling that this won’t be the last time we discuss these two players, so you better get used to us rehashing the topic.

We talk about the Steelers playoff chances with two games remaining and also tackle a few other key talking points related to the team.

    Garvin’s hit ended up breaking a vertebrate in Cincinnati punter. I think it was clean and people shouldn’t be saying it was dirty. Not to sound cliche but it’s football. Hard hits are apart of the game.

  • WilliamSekinger

    It all started with a sideline reporter’s choice of words being read aloud by the SNF announcers. It was wrong to call it a ‘blindside hit’ then, but it was unconscionable for the national media to pick up that word and keep using it when they knew full well it wasn’t a ‘blindside hit’. These people make me absolutely sick sometimes.

  • DrakePirate

    It was a Clean Hit … will it be fined .. probably yes, but in no way shape or form was it dirty .. and i would say the same thing if it happened to our punter, unfortunately he was hurt and injuries come with the territory, hopefully he recovers!

    Its a game of inches and just like antonio brown last week he was that ….. close !

  • Jazz

    The Steelers will not resign WR Santonio Holmes! I can’t believe they are even going to discuss that on the next issue of the Podcast.

  • MC

    I prefer going with Worilds going forward over Woodley. Yes Woodley has been great when he is on the field however I’ve always expected this from Worilds once he got his chance on his preferred college side, even from draft day i had these expectations.
    I’ve seen videos of Worilds training and I really like his work ethic and I think his body is built for for the long haul whereas Woodleys is already on a steep decline. Worilds is more of a quick twitch guy and he has steeler written all over him with his low key demeanor. I hope he gets resigned.

  • MC

    Dave how do you not shut people out when they criticise Bell over his average?
    Yes he doesn’t have elite speed but what good is elite speed when the oline consistently allows at least one player in the back field?
    If we went with a guy with elite speed I could see a Chris Johnson situation from a year ago where the speed is a non factor because there was never any room for him to get going cause he has to avoid tackles within a couple of yards after the handoff.
    Bell is perfect for the type of o line we have. He makes guys miss while still being big and strong enough to make yards after contact. With this o line, yards after contact is vital for our star back and thats what Bell has.
    I love his patience especially considering he is still a rookie. Plus he can catch the ball in the spread or out of the backfield. People need to realize we are getting far more out of a second round pick than we did out of a first round pick in Mendenhall and his rookie year and i foresee it only getting better.

  • SteelersDepot

    You must have listened wrong. I supported Bell in this podcast.

  • DrakePirate

    Great Podcast as usual … very interesting about the stats about running up the middle, if its not NT than where exactly are we failing when it comes to Run Def this year … the way i see it is we have at least an avg to above avg DL and LB core ???

    Worilds is not worth what he will prob get in the free market, would love to keep him, but not worth anything more than 4mil and that would be a lot … too much risk for a half season of work and im not sold that it will continue, although i do like the way he has mastered that outside dip move that harrison used to use so much ! looking at the OLB position it looks like we are screwed .. cant help but think during the whole game how so many ppl here were clamoring for Burfict before that draft … what could have been !!!

  • ND_Steel

    Clean, but unnecessary, thus he’ll be fined. Just by getting in his way Brown was going to blow by. I wouldn’t call him defenseless but the NFL will.

  • MC

    sorry Dave i meant the other Dave, just when he mentioned that a few people have come to him complaining about Bell’s yards per carry, which I think is pretty ludicrous given is overall performance in his rookie year this year.

  • DrakePirate

    I agree with that assessment … but that “unnecessary” statement could be made for almost every play in the NFL … hard hits are part of the game … can you actually envision if there were no hard hits allowed and just sure arm tackles … the results would be the same ( a tackle) but the game would be totally different … hard hits are part of the game and always will be … the day hitting hard is not allowed is the day the game goes the way of baseball …

  • DrakePirate

    Santonio complained that he didnt get the ball enough in Pitt .. but the reality is that his career took a nosedive the moment he left the city .. wish he never screwed up and never left … i agree too little too late !

  • DrakePirate

    I too would pick Worilds going forward but we are stuck with Woodley because of financial reasons, makes no sense to cut him … if we could cut him and not get the cap hit Id keep Worilds too ..

  • DrakePirate

    while the ypc avg is concerning i too think it is because of poor OL play, anybody complaining about Bell has absolutely no talent at evaluating personnel … the guy is a stud short and simple … and after a short season I already can state with certainty that he is one of the best RBs receiving out of the back field … absolutely LOVE his upside … and I have to take issue with David Todd … while not blazing speed, I definitely think he is fast enough to reach the edge … although he will never be confused with FWP, i like his quick bursts … despite what Todd said, he is about as much of an “all-around” back as they come !!!

  • Jollyrob68

    I understand if you cut him or keep him it’s the same amount but how much do the Steelers eat r save if they trade Woodley?

  • P – squared

    first of all they are on the hook for approx. 14.1 mill if they trade or cut him this year unless its a post june 1st cut…

    second who in their right mind would give a 3rd rd pick to a 30 year old, constantly hurt, OLB with a 14.1 mil price tag???

    people make me laugh with these we can get XXX draft pick for this guy…

    no one trades in the nfl because these picks are so valuable…and on top of it you have to be willing to find a team to trade with..just because we don’t want a guy doesn’t mean someone else is gonna give a pick that is waaaaaaayyyyy over the value of the player being traded….

  • P – squared

    Dave am i correct with that 14.1 mill. # ??? unless it is a post june 1st…then i believe its around 5-6 mil ???

  • ND_Steel

    Agreed, but kind of apples and oranges when you are talking about tackles and direct impacts to a play. Hard hits on a tackle are definitely and should definitely continue to be a part of the game. Unnecessary hard hits on unsuspecting ‘would be’ tacklers is in most cases an unnecessary use of force, and I think this is what they are trying to clean out of the game. Do I like the hard hits, hell yeah, Hines is one of my all time favorites…should we continue to have them unnecessarily, probably not. Any Joe could see that it was unnecessary to deliver a blow with such force (on a punter no less) as to break a guy’s jaw to make that play successful. It is unsportmanlike and unnecessary “roughness”. I’d be pissed if my son took a hit like that for no good reason.

  • DrakePirate

    i think part of the problem is that it is not as easy as you think to dial it down after being taught and playing one way your whole life … not to mention that playing anything other than full speed tends to lead to injuries … go to any HS game and you see that type of play on a weekly basis … in the past I have ioved and relished Harrison’s/Clark’s/Hine’s hits that laid ppl out … those types of hits can change the game and momentum and i hope we don’t lose that … do i want the game to be safer for players yes, but not at the cost of any intensity to the game.

  • srdan

    I am sure the FO agrees with you.

  • srdan

    lol. The rest of the league has TV just like us steeler fans. Keeping in mind why we don’t want him, why would someone else offer a 3rd?
