The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Chiefs Game Recap, Brown Locker Room Video & More

Season 7, Episode 68 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to recapping the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night Divisional Round win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

As you can imagine, there’s a lot to talk about in this episode and we get right to grading the Steelers three units in addition to talking about scheme, and individual performances.

Did Ben Roethlisberger have a poor game Sunday night against the Chiefs? We discuss that topic quite thoroughly in addition to whether or not the Steelers should have run the football in the red zone more than they did.

We go over my 7 keys to the Chiefs game in the middle of show and see how many the Steelers accomplished.

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce were held in check Sunday night so David and I discuss that topic.

The Steelers will now move on to play the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game next Sunday so we discuss how we think running back Le’Veon Bell might be used in that game.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown streamed some controversial content from the team’s locker room after the game so we make sure to discuss that topic at the end of the show.

As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.

    Congratulations on the new sponsor fellas. Good to see all of your hard work is now starting to bare fruit. I see the hotline number and the contact info, but what is your window for submissions and your recording time? i.e. If a depot-head wants to submit a question or comment do they need to have it in by say Monday morning at 7am or are you taking them in real time??

  • Tell David Todd the stat should be 14 out of 16 years the AFC SB QB is Ben, Brady or P. Manning (including this year). From ’01 to ’16 only twice was the QB someone else, in the ’12 season it was Flacco and in the ’02 it was Rich Gannon.

    I have to agree with Dave . Ben was sub par against the Chiefs

  • nobodyaskedbut .

    I without a doubt have to blame this win on Roethlisberger. If not for him the so-called best receiver in the NFL would not have dropped a sure TDP in the end zone. If not for him the Steelers would have gained more yards rushing that passing. If not for him the Chiefs would have had a sack on Pittsburgh’s longest play of the game. And, of course, if not for him Lev Bell would have been the player who clinched the win on the most important 3rd down conversion of the season. No wait it was Brown who made that play possible because Roethlisberger had an easy play to make because the Chiefs were nothing but statues on that play and were not even a factor in the Steelers backfield er, no wait there was 1 of the 3 loose pursuers a couple of yards away form the QB as he passed the ball on the run to Brown. Also, it’s no matter that Roethlisberger made a 7 yd pass on 2nd down to another receiver. In fact the Chiefs are a team the Steelers should have scored 4 or 5 TDs on despite the fact they had a better W-L record, were the home team and were the team most people outside of western Pa. thought were going to win.

  • Regarding the Antonio Brown blunder, all I’ll say about it is, if it would have been one of New England’s players or coaches that referred to OUR team as a**holes, we’d all be pretty ticked off. I know I would. You can bet your tookus our defense, AND our offense for that matter, would be ticked off and would be playing with even more determination. I expect no less from New England. That’s not good. I hate Tom Brady, but he always plays great when he’s pissed. We may need him to get the flu a day or two before the game.

    That being said, we all know every playoff game is a must-win game. We won a game against the Chiefs that we could have easily lost if it had gone into overtime. Le’Veon Bell had 170 yards, breaking his record from last week, yet we managed zero TDs and had to settle for six FGs. I know that’s a new playoff record by Boswell, but has any team ever had to attempt six FGs in a playoff game before?

    We all know how hard it has been for us when we have had to go to New England. I don’t think six, seven or even eight FGs will be enough for us to win there. Especially in the AFC Championship Game. However, if we can get a few FGs along with two or three TDs from Bell on the ground and at least one through the air from whichever player can manage to do so, we will probably win. I know our defense has been playing very well, but this is at New England. They have the best record in the league for a reason. Maybe we won’t have to score 37 points to win, but that will only be if our defense plays EXTREMELY well. Brady is going to want to torch us.

    Listen, I’m not saying I’m not confident, but if it’s possible to be confident and a bit worried at the same time, that’s how I’m feeling about this matchup. I do feel that even thought New England has a great record this season, they have had better teams in the past then the one they have now. This is probably the least talented team they’ve had that has been able to reach the championship game. Thinking about that gives me a little boost of confidence, but as I stated in the beginning, I’m sure most of their players will likely be playing a bit pissed off. I know if someone I was about to go up against in a battle had called me an a**hole, I’d be ticked too.

    Going to New England with their hometown crowd also having viewed the Antonio Brown video, you can be sure THEY are ALL ticked off. I know all Steelers’ fans would be angry and ready to make even more noise than usual if the shoe were on the other foot.

    I’m letting my fingernails grow EXTRA long for this one.

    (This comment was awaiting approval because I had used the word ‘a**hole’ without the asterisks. I tamed it down. LOL)

    Ben’s play was off all night. C at best, but with that being said they should make him play under center more and utilize play action more. Dave if you would please contrast our use of play action against Atlanta’s (#1 offense in the league). How can we have 337 rushing yards from Le’Veon and not really play pass at all?? That would apply so much more pressure on the defense!!!!
