Season 5, Episode 10 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and David Todd and I start this show off by talking about the first round of roster cuts made Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Steelers. We go player by player and talk about why they were waived and it what it might mean for several other players still on the roster bubble heading into the preseason finale Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers.
After talking about the recent transactions, David and I move on to talk about several of the things that head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday during his press conference. This means that we discuss the comments that he made about punter Brad Wing in addition to wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. We also discuss what Tomlin had to say about his use of football analytics and this turns into a good discussion about the work that Pro Football Focus and Football Outsiders both do.
Third-string quarterback Landry Jones will certainly be one player to watch closely Thursday night so we talk about his current status headed into that game along with several other players we will have a close eye on.
We also talk about the recent comments made by team president Art Rooney II concerning all of the defensive penalties being called during the preseason. Will these decline once the regular season starts?
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here.
