The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Initial 2017 Roster, Cuts, Recent Trades, & More

Season 8, Episode 16 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the several moves made by the Pittsburgh Steelers that happened over the weekend and into Monday.

We talk about the players we were surprised to see make the initial 53-man roster in addition to a few who didn’t. We look at the recent trades the Steelers made that included wide receiver Sammie Coates and cornerback Ross Cockrell both sent packing and safety J.J. Wilcox being brought in.

We go over the current situation with running back Le’Veon Bell and how he is being used as a No. 54 player on the roster right now. We also discuss which player might ultimately be cut to make room for Bell once he’s activated.

Should safety Robert Golden be sleeping soundly right now? We discuss that topic as well.

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

    I feel like Hunter made it because they could get something for Coates. It was a coin flip between the two and which ever one they could get a return for is the one that went. David Johnson isn’t going anywhere. If there is an injury to the TE’S they can always bring him back, where Grimble is much more likely to get picked up. If you look at Hawkins he plays much better on the left side. His struggles really occurred when he was on the right side.

    I thought that also about Hunter- that Coates was one the one who actually could get something in return. I also think Hunter is a Ben “type of WR”. I always wonder if Ben has any influence in these kind of decisions.

    Feiler is just a guy. Meaning you can pick someone else off a practice squad, and it’s 50 50 chance they might be better. The Steelers will be sorry they dumped Ayers, and let the Evil Empire have him. When you are in a fight you don’t give your enemies weapons to take you out. Talent wise and upside it’s no comparison between Ayers and Feiler. The Evil Empire loves to take the players you cut, and embarrass you with your own player. See Danny Woodhead and LeGarrette Blount.

    Im glad ben made a push for Hunter. Coates has lived off those 5 weeks of football for too long. Hunter is a more versatile player.

    They didn’t give up too early. Some of his drops were not cause of his fingers, it was due to poor tracking of the ball and not contesting enough, plus he’s not a good route runner to boot. One trick pony who fluked that trick for 5 weeks.

    I think Golden makes the most sense with S. Johnson signed back, but would you possibly slide Hawkins to the PS? He hopefully will be inactive all season.
