The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Jaguars Recap, Roethlisberger’s INTs, Play Calling & More

Season 8, Episode 31 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to breaking down the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

We start things off by trying to break the Steelers 30-9 loss to the Jaguars into three game parts and go from there. We move on to talking about each of the five interceptions that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw during Sunday’s game.

The Steelers were 0-3 inside the red zone on Sunday and because of that, David and I look at the play calling deep inside the Jaguars end of the field and most notably during their sixth offensive possession of the game, their final one before Roethlisberger’s wheels came off.

We talk about what we would like to see the Steelers offense do more of and less of moving forward into the season.

We save some time to talk about the play of the Steelers defense on Sunday and how that unit’s wheels came off during the Jaguars first possession of the fourth quarter, which included that drive ending with a field goal after a long string of nothing but running plays.

Should Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley be fired right now? What about if the Steelers lose their next three games before the bye week? We discuss both of those topics along with talking about where we both are right now on the “concern meter” entering Week 6.

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

    This one is going to hurt. Just a coupla’ Daves, kicking me in the nuts.

  • srdan

    haha, you guys have no idea what to say. It’s hard to dissect.

    David Bryan I thought it was your best podcast of the year. You tend to offer the most on the worst weeks. Thanks!

  • Alan Tman

    Bortles 0 for 1 for no yards in the second half. True definition of beating yourself!!!

    You know how I know this?

    The damn ad that plays on its own in the top right corner near the donate button. You should get rid of that button though. I’m sure you don’t need donations with all the add revenue you receive.

  • Dorian James

    After this podcast, I’m convinced this team needs a whole new coaching staff. Defensive players celebrating while giving up first downs?, talking trash while they’re being destroyed?, an offense that is underachieving at this level??
    Oh yeah, time to tear this thing down and start preparing for next year. Let the insults rain down, I do not care. this is exactly how I feel.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    It’s just part of the grieving process.

  • ND_Steel

    Describe Steelers right now in a few words: Distracted, undisciplined, over-hyped, cocky, dis-interested, delusional…..sound about right?

  • ND_Steel

    The lack of discipline and hot-dogging is disturbing, especially as you say while they are getting destroyed. Complete lack of game and self awareness. The offense lacks creativity in the passing game and conviction in the running game. No identity, poor execution. This team thinks they should be blowing everyone out and can’t function in a close game…no focus or sense of reality. This team is big-time distracted, starting with the QB who needs to get to work (or not; walk or right side ok, walk on left ok…walk in road…squish just like grape). Jesse James has been horrid…bring back David Johnson…we miss having a blocking TE. JuJu looks every bit a rookie. O Line is not getting it done. Meanwhile, our biggest baddest no-nonsense guy on defense…even at 39…one Mr. James Harrison…has been shunned and demoted to street clothes…sad. In his absence, we have Vince Williams running his mouth, Mitchell being typical Mitchell, Burns turning into Mitchell, the complete regression of Sean Davis, Shazier is completely hit or miss taking himself out of run plays. Frustrated here too.

  • ND_Steel

    Big play was the block in the back on the first Jax punt of the second half…Steelers had just taken the lead out of the half, get a quick three and out, are going to have good field position at own 35-40 yard line and get pushed back to the 25 with the penalty. Felt like it took the wind out of the sails there.

  • joe triplehorns

    Is HALEY the only person in the football world that didn’t know jacksonville was week against the run and strong against the pass. Seems to me Haley set the team up for failure…lose that /ick!!!!

  • ND_Steel

    Tired of the…we’re not a finished product talk…neither is the other team…poor excuses…16 game season…gotta be ready for all of them.

  • ND_Steel

    “Played like a**”…”what the f is Mitchell carrying on about”…great sound bites…lol

  • Dorian James

    That about covers it. Very well put

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I understand that the Steelers did not have a lot of good runs but neither did the Jags for 3 quarters. The difference is the Jags stuck with it and the Steelers didn’t and we see the results. The Jags were able to hit in the 4th.
