The Terrible Podcast – Talking Worilds Transition Tag, Steelers Busy Wednesday & Much More Episode


Season 4, Episode 84 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I have quite a bit to go over as it’s been a busy week for the Pittsburgh Steelers. We start by looking at the decision to transition tag linebacker Jason Worilds and what the next step might be with him as far as a contract extension goes. With Worilds now back in the fold, everyone is focusing on the status of linebacker LaMarr Woodley. We have a look at it from all angles and tell you why he might not be packing his bags as quick as many think.

The Steelers released linebacker Larry Foote, tackle Levi Brown and cornerback Curtis Brown on Wednesday so we break down all three of those decisions. In addition, we also discuss the extensions given Wednesday to safety Troy Polamalu and tight end Heath Miller.

The status of cornerback Ike Taylor remains uncertain so we make sure to dedicate some time to that and we also discuss the Wednesday re-signing of safety Will Allen as well.

It’s a very busy episode and we also manage time at the end of it to read a few listener emails.

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

    I like Ike in a 2-3 CB role on a team with no experience at CB as you point out. Now we have to find a way to pay him as such. I agree that yesterday was a big sign that something was already discussed in a way to keep him. FA CB would be a good boost to teh unit, but I don’t see it. But then again, none of us saw the transition tag.


    I disagree with you about Moye. He has a lot of talent. He just hasn’t had enough playing time to show it yet. Ben has been practicing with him in the off-season so apparently, Ben likes him. I hope he returns. He just needs to get the gears oiled a bit. As far as Burress goes, I myself am still recovering from a torn rotator cuff accident that took place over ten months ago and I can tell you this, Burress is done. One good fall on that shoulder and he’s out for the season again. It takes a long time to heal from that injury. If it was torn WITH the grain, it could have healed pretty good already, but if it was torn AGAINST the grain, he’s got a lot more healing time ahead of him. I never heard or read anything about that when he received the results of his MRI, so I don’t know in which direction it was torn or even if it was just a partial tear or a complete tear. Anyone who has had a torn rotator cuff knows what I mean. He’s stubborn about the situation. That’s understandable, but he needs to retire.

    I don’t think the steelers front office owe Woodley anything. After two 8-8 seasons they need to be thinking big picture and Woodley has made a lot of money for someone who has missed a lot of games which has definitely hurt the team and led to the 8-8 records. Steelers need to do whatever is neccessary in getting better. Being a good samaritan to Woodley in regards to free agency should be an afterthought.
    I’m not against keeping Woodley. If it doesn’t alter the cap then why not keep him cause Jones still has a ways to go. Woodley is a good stop gap for Jones’s development and if Worilds goes down Woodley can go back to his usual side on the left.
    Trade down in the draft and use a pick probably in the fourth for a OLB to add depth.

    Do you think he would take a voluntary pay cut on condition of being released to allow him to be the top guy in free agency? give 4 Guaranteed away to try and get 40? would you even be allowed to do that? we use the money to sign a safety because…lets be real, we aren’t gona draft a safety who’s going to be a starter this year unless it’s with the top pick.
