The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Lions Game Recap, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Matthew Stafford & More

Season 8, Episode 40 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to talking about Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night road win over the Detroit Lions. We start with going over the team’s inactive list in addition to talking about the fee injuries suffered during the game.

We move on to start breaking down the Steelers win over the Lions but pause a little while to look back at the amazing week that rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had.

David and I talk about the play of the Steelers offense Sunday night in Detroit and that includes discussing the performance of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the few missed plays that were left on the field.

Was not having tight end Vance McDonald Sunday night a big deal? We discuss that topic and point out how the Steelers running game wasn’t up to par against the Lions.

While the Steelers defense didn’t allow the Lions to score a touchdown Sunday night, they did give up quite a few passing yards and way too many explosive plays. We try to place blame on a few of those.

We discuss several induvial defensive performances from Sunday night and make sure to give Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford some well-deserved praise for his play in the game as well.

We discuss several key plays and calls in from that game in addition to everything else.

David and I close out this Monday show with a look at the Steelers second half schedule.

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

    What scares me after this game is that it appears that the Steelers have a clear number 1 and a clear number 2 receiver, but after that, a lot of question marks. If we suffer an injury to Brown or Smith-Schuster, teams may load up to stop Bell running and double Brown. Who then steps up on offense? My fingers and toes are crossed that our top two receivers stay healthy.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I called a Deebo pick 6; if they would have allowed him on the field that would have allayed all the pass defense concerns with him in.

  • Dorian James

    I hate to sound like a crybaby about the pass rush, but I seen a lot of Jersey pulling and turning of the players that the referees only called once. And in seeing that I wasn’t as disappointed in the pass rush because it look like the refs were “just letting these guys play”. And the same could be said about the defensive backs they were really all over the receivers in this game.

  • Dave Bryan says – “Let’s worry about getting beat by the Patriots when we get beat by the Patriots.”

    LOL – In the Winners/Losers article, I see it every week. “The defense play well, but Brady would have torched us!”

    Don’t get me wrong, I get why people are so hung up on Brady, Belichick, and the Pats but come on. Give it a rest once in a while, it’s getting old.

  • With 423 yards of passing, Stafford tore them a new butt hole. That crap has to stop. I was wondering how we would do when we finally played against a good passer. Just as other teams studied the Chiefs tape and how we beat them, teams are going to study this Lions game tape against our secondary.

    Ben needs to play much better if he wants that seventh Lombardi. Bell can’t do it all.
