The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Minicamp Preview, Landry Jones’ Backup Ranking, O-Lines & More

Season 7, Episode 119 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, Alex Kozora sits in again for David Todd and we get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Penguins capturing another championship for the Steel City Sunday night in Nashville.

After praising the Penguins, Alex and I turn our attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers as they prepare for their mandatory minicamp this week. We reset all the main storylines heading into this week before moving on to other topics.

Does Steelers quarterback Landry Jones deserve to be ranked 14th overall on ESPN’s latest backup quarterbacks list? Only 16 were listed and Alex discuss which of the other 15 on the list we’d like to have in Pittsburgh instead of Jones.

Former Steelers offensive lineman Willie Colon had an interesting quote about tight end Jesse James a few days ago so Alex and I dive into that topic. We also talk about what we expect out of James in 2017 as well as backup tight end Xavier Grimble.

Is the Steelers current offensive line the best the franchise has ever had? Better yet, how does this year’s unit matchup to the 2005 version? Alex and I thoroughly discuss that topic late in the show.

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

    How could you possibly say the goaltenders were sloppy? It was the longest game time without goal in SCF history.

  • Jeff Burton

    It was shear idiocy for the Steelers to not upgrade the Backup QB position in Free Agency. Brad Kaaya and Nate Peterman were more pro ready QBs than Josh Dobbs, as well. I know they drafted Dobbs ‘potential’ but players who haven’t put it all together in college rarely do it in the Pros. There’s also reporting that Dobbs will not be competing for the backup role. Isn’t that what the preseason is for??? To see if you have a better player at a position? After living through the phalanx of Cliff Stoudts, Bubby Bristers and Kordell Stewarts,etc this makes me very nervous.

    Here is were I hate sitting around and not doing anything at backup QB . L Jones is just plain incompetent as someone who could come in and take a team with good RB’s, WR’s and a good OL and winning if Ben goes down early in the season for a long time. I mean you have a SB team and you would put it the hands of a QB. Who is inaccurate has a weak arm . Has thrown interceptions in every start he has had . They would have to limit the O to what he is capable of . Not much. I know what Belichick would do.

  • Jeff Burton

    Belichick would have Ben’s successor sitting on the bench.

    So it sounds like despite them playing different sides you matched up Faneca and Decastro because of skill level. What if you do the same for tackle. Does the equation change if you compare Smith to Gilbert and Starks to AV?

    I believe you came out 3-2 in favor of the current line. So do you take Smith over Gilbert and Starks over AV making in 3-2 the other way or how would you choose them?
