The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Final OTAs Recap, McCullers’ Future, Villanueva Comments & More

Season 7, Episode 118 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, Alex Kozora sits in again for David Todd and we get right to talking about a few Pittsburgh Steelers players being very visible during the Pittsburgh Penguins Thursday night win over the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Steelers wrapped up their annual OTA practices on Thursday so Alex and I attempt to recap the health of the team as they prepare for their mandatory minicamp.

Tackle Alejandro Villanueva finally spoke to the media about his contract situation on Thursday so Alex and I spend a little more time talking about his unique situation and if he’ll ultimately take part in the team’s mandatory minicamp next week.

We turn our attention to Steelers defensive tackle Daniel McCullers during the middle part of Fridays show being as he was running behind L.T. Walton at the nose tackle position some with starter Javon Hargrave sidelined at the beginning of the week. Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell had some interesting words about McCullers that we make sure to recap.

Would the Steelers be interested in signing Steve McLendon should he ultimately wind up being released by the New York Jets? We thoroughly explore that scenario.

Alex wants to know who the hardest-hitting Steelers player is so we spend a few minutes discussing that topic. We also talk briefly about former Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams possibly perusing a wresting career.

We wrap up this Friday show by answering quite a few questions we received from listeners on Twitter and the episode ends with a fishy twist.

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

    You a noodler Dave?

    With you 100% Alex, Mitchell isn’t even close to a dirty player. Heck, I think even the penalty he took was questionable.

  • Alex Kozora

    If I remember correctly, Eifert ducked his head. Pretty much impossible for Mitchell to avoid it.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Yep and I LOATHE calls like that, probably why I remember. Again, I think you are spot on in him being the poster boy for how to play hard and legal at the same time.

    Not sure who is calling him dirty but they are wrong.

    Hey Alex I’m someone who doesn’t think Mitchell is as bad as many on here in regards to performance but the one play that irked me and made me think of him as a little dirty was the hit on Carlos Hyde in the second game of the 2015 season.
    He dove straight at his knee and it bent in the most painful looking way, that’s football and it happens but what I hated was that he got up and celebrated knowing he had hurt the other player in a body part that can end careers. I was watching that game with my buddy who is a niners fan and I was ashamed. We both spoke about how that was completely uncalled for.

    So with me it’s no so much the hits that I don’t like, it’s his reactions to making them. Sometimes they are positive plays of the offence but he still fronts like it was a bigger hit than what it was or for a loss.
