The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Camp Winding Down, Porter OLB Comments, Ben On Bell & More

Season 8, Episode 8 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I get right into talking about how the Pittsburgh Steelers training camp has gone so far with it starting to wind down this week.

A few interesting comments were made by Steelers outside linebackers coach Joey Porter and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger over the course of the last few days and so we spend some time breaking them down.

Will T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree really wind up being the Week 1 starters with James Harrison serving as the relief pitcher? We discuss that as well as Bell needing to be in “football shape” soon.

How much say does special teams coordinator Danny Smith have when it comes to the final two roster spots? We discuss that as well as whether the Steelers return game will be better in 2017.

We end the show with some breaking news about Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates.

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

    If Le’Veon Bell’s absence is insignificant why would Mike Tomlin say that he needs them there yesterday? David Todd’s point is counter-intuitive.

  • Walt Dongo

    DT seems like he is reading news articles half the podcast and barely interacting with DB. I stopped listening because of this. I much prefer the DB and Alex podcasts.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Do not understand the disregard for Hamilton and Ayers. Ayers looked good at the end of last year and so far in practice and Hamilton makes good plays all the time. I feel you have to have them at least in the mix. DHB and Hunter IMO are not ahead of either of those guys and Coates has been on PUP all preseason.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    They are all decent players but I think you are wrong on this.

    Ayers – His primary position as a receiver is as a slot guy and Rogers already has him beat and they drafted JJSS who is also likely to be mainly a slot option. So not only is he down the depth chart, but he is at the bottom at a specific receiving position. His only real value at that point would be as a punt returner and that is only assuming he could win that job and he hasn’t been on the field to do it.

    Hamilton – I like Hamilton but if we are being honest he is 1 big play every few games and outside of that he is a ghost. You could make the same argument for DHB with 2 differences in DHB’s favor. He is faster than Hamilton making him able to take the top off of coverage and he has a lot more ST value. So yes, he is definitely ahead of Hamilton on the depth chart

    Hunter is kind of unknown for me.

    I’m done with Bell!!! We need player who want to actually play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, not for just a contract! This is just another way he is hurting the team, again!!!!! One thing I love my team for and it’s not folding because one players decides to go rogue……Ask Plaxico Burress how that turned out?

  • Alan Tman

    So glad you are trying to calm the whole Bell not being in camp down.

  • Steel B

    DB…I don’t recall DHB having a lot of trouble catching the deep ball. If that’s all you need him to do I think he can handle that. His problem has always been ins and slants. He hears LBs footsteps and alligator arms those.

    @DavidTodd the fourth round draft pick in 1974 for the Steelers was a guy named John Stallworth. Not sure if you’ve heard of him. 🙂
