The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers 2017 Season Preview, Browns Game, Week 1 Picks & More

Season 8, Episode 18 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the New England Patriots Thursday night loss to the Kansas City Chiefs to kick off the 2017 season.

We go over a lot from last night’s game and see if there is anything to be learned from it.

We should expect defensive end Stephon Tuitt to get a new contract on Friday or Saturday so we talk about that as well as which player is likely to be cut to make room for running back Le’Veon Bell being activated to the 53-man roster.

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2017 season gets underway Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns so David and I spend a lot of time previewing what we expect to see from the team this year. We go over quite a few stat predictions for individual players as well as offensive and defensive stat totals.

Is there a faulty narrative about the 2017 Steelers going around? We address that topic during the show.

We give you are 2017 predictions for the Steelers as it relates to wins and losses and if we think they can win the Super Bowl this year. We also talk about Sunday’s game against the Browns and that includes injury reports for both teams as well as our score predictions.

We close out this Friday show by giving you our predictions against the spread for all the Week 1 games.

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

    I have some good and bad to discuss. First I will give you the bad lol.

    I think both of you Daves sometimes get a bit too arrogant and are a bit too quick to scoff at peoples ideas or opinions. I am talking specifically about the idea that the Steelers may be going a bit more all in with the window closing on Ben. What exactly is so outlandish about that idea? Mr. Bryan, you specifically said (and I will paraphrase here) it was business as usual for Colbert and a sentence later said he went about it somewhat differently this year. So which is it?

    The main thing I will continue to back to is sure, he makes moves every offseason but tell me the last time a starter from the year before went from the best on the team at their position to being likely to be cut or traded off of the roster. I am talking about Ross Cockrell of course. Don’t get me wrong, all bets were on Burns being the better of the 2 this season but it was definitely debateable last season. I would argue that that may be a bigger splash than even signing a guy like Greene last year or Mitchell or whomever when we brought them in.

    And last thing I will say on the subject is you and DT BOTH had what I would call outlandish roster predictions coming into this thing with David Todd thinking we would keep 4 RB’s which was just ridiculous, and you thinking Mcgee was making the roster and we would do 4 TE’s. I thought both were crazy but I didn’t talk down to either of you. I think you guys do a great job with the podcast but it can rub people the wrong way if you start getting a little too high and mighty on certain subjects given the extent of the mistakes you guys also make. We are all human here, never forget that.

    Anyway, now for the good.

    I often here you guys apologizing for the length of the podcast and I think that is crazy. I can talk about or listen to Steelers stuff all day long so the longer you guys make the podcast, the better in my opinion. Never apologize for providing entertainment. You guys do great work and the more the better.

    Matt Feiler or Brian Allen would be my guess and who gets the axe.

  • Alan Tman

    I agree that Ben’s year to year is the cause of this signing a 9 million dollar a year free agent. You can’t pretend that ever happens. Ben probably told them I want to win. If I don’t think you’re trying I’m out, because I have much better things to do at this age. Frankly I don’t blame him. Bell will average over 5 yards per because of MB10’S threat of tearing the top off. Cover two will be the play of the day rolling over the top of MB10 and doubling AB with a LB. They’d rather die a slow death, and take a couple of chances flying up to the line of scrimmage trying to stop the run. We also enter the 500 point club!!

    IF Steelers are high on Feiler why not move Hawkins to IR? (he can return in the season) That way you keep all your guys for long term or at least buys 1/2 season to see how other injuries unfold and how guys play. If want to bring Hawkins back later, along with Sutton, then make cuts then. Again at that point you’re cutting guys that haven’t played out like you thought so potentially no big loss…
