The Terrible Podcast – Talking Combine, Safeties, Cornerbacks, Draft, Contracts & Much More Episode


Season 4, Episode 82 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I really pack a ton in this hour long edition of the show. We start of talking about the last day of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine and that means we’re talking cornerback and safety prospects. The discussion moves along into talking about the future of safety Shamarko Thomas from a positional standpoint.

We throw some good questions at each other concerning the draft and the Steelers approach to it. We talk about “special players” in the first round and go over a few recent comments made by general manager Kevin Colbert.

Although we both don’t like to really discuss it that much, David and I do talk about the possibility of the Steelers trading down in the first round. While it’s fun to think about and discuss, those scenarios are endless and impossible to predict. We, however, entertain the part of our listenership that likes that subject nonetheless.

After 45 minutes or so, we turn our attention to the free agent market value of linebacker Jason Worilds and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders now that we are just over a week away from the start of free agency. David has an interesting number that he would be alright with the Steelers re-signing Sanders for.

We also talk a little bit more about what many think the final 2014 salary cap number will be and how it relates to the Steelers.

Several other Steelers talking points are also discussed along the way.

    That Landry Jones pick is now getting more and more fustraighting. What were they thinking.

  • T R

    i agree Daves, if Evans, Benjamin, Ebron or Lee are availabe at 15.. we go that route in that order before any other picks.. You have to out score your oppoent to win the game.. thats a definite…

    Love the red barn quote. Haven’t heard it in a while.

    The only player that shouldn’t apply to is the QB. And I give the office credit for trying to change his game to prolong his career.

    Good podcast.

    One thing to keep in mind is that there are 31 other teams and fans that feel like us. We want the players that are going to be in teh 7-10 range, the teams and fans from the 7-10 range want the guys at 3-6. It’s human nature.

    When it comes to losing free agents the same applies. Only I think for the Steelers it’s rubbing salt on teh Keenan Lewis wound with the whole Worldis situation. The teams taht can afford all the free agents they want don’t have a quarterback.

    I also agree with you. Manny had lots of drops, very key ones. But somewhere in the back of my head I keep thinking that he had an anomaly of a season. Because of this I think he can be had at a discount. But not Cooper money, he signed a deal that 31 year old veterans get.

    These 2 need to get over kelvin Benjamin already. Didn’t anyone else notice how lumbering he was during his combine workout. What’s the appeal? He’s slow, uncoordinated, can’t catch and can’t run routes. Why target him over Ebron? You could split him out and do they same thing… Oh yeah, and he can catch

  • SteelersDepot

    You really need to watch more tape instead of printed word.

  • Rob

    Did you read the part where I referenced his combine performance? Listen, I’m not scout and I don’t pretend to be, but he was not graceful to say the least. Maybe he just looked so bad because mike evens looked so smooth and fast in drills right behind him, but there is nothing remarkable about him expect his height… Benjamin is the kind of big man nfl teams regret drafting, like mike Williams–expect he could catch better than Benjamin. If you want big, Ebron makes the most sense after Evans. Personally, if they are both gone and we are determined to go wide recievers, I prefer Brandon cooks. A deep threat is more important than height to our offense and how Ben plays

    Think you misunderstood or I didn’t make clear what I was talking about with Shamarko, Dave. One I just wanted your opinion on why it is he is seen as more of a SS. But my point wasn’t we should count on moving him or Bailey to FS, but that you don’t have an established SS of the future on the team. You have an old Troy and Shark who you THINK could be a starter, but he hasn’t shown anything yet. Shamarko’s presence on the roster shouldn’t stop the Steelers from drafting a good SS prospect.

  • Matt Manzo

    I’m gonna settle this once and for all! I just moved Shamarko to FS in Madden 25 and he’s playing way better. There, it’s settled.

    lol there will be no discount for Sanders. Some team will offer him more than what Cooper got.
