The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers CB Group News, Colts Game Preview, Roster Numbers & More

Season 8, Episode 12 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to talking about the latest news concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback group now that Coty Sensabaugh is getting first-team reps over Ross Cockrell and the team traded for Dashaun Phillips examine the trade for Phillips closely and why that deal likely happened when it did.

We go over the several Steelers players who will likely make their 2017 preseason debuts Saturday night against the Indianapolis Colts in addition to the ones we are most excited to see play in that contest.

Would the Steelers consider keeping only 8 linebackers in total this year? We go over a few scenarios related to that topic that could potentially open a roster spot for perhaps a seventh cornerback and a fourth tight end or running back.

As part of our 53-man roster talk, David and I attempt to reverse-engineer by going over what the Week 1 inactive list might look like as we sit here with two preseason games remaining.

Did the Steelers damage the reputation of running back Le’Veon Bell by supposedly leaking the numbers of the final contract they offered him last month? We discuss that narrative that’s floating around right now in addition to talking about how Bell has experience when it comes to debuting during regular seasons following lengthy layoffs.

We close the show out with a few BOLD predictions for Saturdays preseason game.

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

    Rumor on the street is that David Todd will be working for DJ Sports Radio starting in September. Does this mean he is leaving the Terrible Podcast?

    I will say this for the debate you guys have. DT is really confident in his opinions and likes to scoff at a lot of things but I think his idea of 4 RB’s is the worst of the bunch. You can write it down in permanent marker that they aren’t keeping 4 RB’s.

    As to your idea about the 4 TE’s Dave, that isn’t happening either. Now where I do lean towards your side of the argument is that I think there is a shot Mcgee can beat out Grimble but they aren’t keeping 4 TE’s. You have Nix already and Hubbard who they like to use as an extra linemen as well. The argument for Grimble is that he offers something different than the other guys as far as athleticism and that is true, but if that never amounts to anything does it matter if the potential is there? At this point I think I am starting to lean towards Mcgee as well.

    One other thing I want to point out is that you all keep writing off DHB (Dave you mentioned him as an afterthought in the WR battle) and he is running ahead of both Hunter and Coates and offers more on ST. He is ahead of both of them right now IMO. Now you can debate all day long about whether he deserves it or not, but there is no doubt in my mind he isn’t the afterthought in this convo.

    I think sometimes you guys tend to overlook the intangible things like DHB being a good lockeroom guy. If you need any evidence to that go back and look at this most recent draft. Steelers went all high character and they seemed so interested in those qualities they were willing to take a guy like Conner one or two rounds early.

    Dave, that was the most hilarious sign off I’ve ever heard you do on a podcast.

    Literally had me laughing out loud. Also, good show.
