The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Reported Interest In Rams CB, Butler Secondary Comments, Stats & More

Season 8, Episode 7 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, Alex Kozora sits in for David Todd and we get right to talking about the Friday report that named the Pittsburgh Steelers as a team possibly looking to trade for Los Angeles Rams cornerback Tremaine Johnson. That report is so absurd and I rant as to why that is.

Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler recently had a lot to say about his defense and young members of the secondary so we go over his quotes and what they might mean. We talk about the play of several young Steelers cornerbacks Friday night and how the team might choose to keep six in total and not seven.

Alex and I go over the Steelers base defense numbers from Friday night and especially how often it was used against 11 personnel. Is this a trend or just something being played with during the preseason?

We end this episode by taking several questions from our listeners.

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

    Yeah Steelers need an upgrade at DB, remember what Brady did to secondary in AFC champ game.

    I believe Will Shakespeare was a Steelers number 1 (#3 overall) draft choice and never played a snap. Pretty big bust.

    You cannot excuse the Rivera pick and not excuse the other injury related issues. You can’t defend Pouncey and others and not defend the Golson pick. As Tomlin likes to say, injuries are part of the game. One guys misfortune is also the teams misfortune, but it is not a bad choice. It’s hard enough to pick talent that will be successful in the NFL. Judging by something as capricious as who gets injured is asking a bit much. To me, a bust is the guy who we invest a high draft pick (top 100) that does nothing on the field to justify the pick. Golson hasn’t gotten on the field for more than a few practices, but when he was on the field, he created a little buzz and some hope. It’s unfortunate how his situation has unfolded, but to call him a bust implies a mistake was made in drafting him. At the time they decided to draft him, his injury history was in the future. It’s hard to fault the choice when the biggest issue when evaluating the pick (injuries) came long after they made the decision.

    Dave I get the impression you would willingly sacrifice a baby seal to get Williams off of the field during passing downs. With that being said, Alex buys into Williams in coverage and if I remember right has given us some breakdown on it. You don’t buy into Williams so much. Do you have specific in game examples as to why or is it mostly just you equating athletic ability to coverage ability?

  • Thomas

    On the Allen discussion easy way I would describe the corners that play on the line and play press “guys who are meant to cover the big X receiver who can’t go in motion” And the list of those guys we have is a short one so I hope he stays.
