The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Offensive Positional Groups, Bye Week Action, Listener Emails & More

Season 8, Episode 43 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I open with a look at what happened this weekend in the AFC North division as well as the AFC conference. We attempt to speculate which other three teams in the AFC might make the playoffs and decide that there are really only three teams likely to push to make it to the Super Bowl.

The NFC is much wider open nine weeks into the season so David and visit that topic before moving on to talk about the several player skirmishes that took place on the field Sunday.

The Steelers made one practice squad move on Monday so David and I recap it and what it means for the team entering Week 10 of the season. We move on to look at each offensive positional group of the Steelers at the halfway point of the season and discuss if each has or hasn’t exceeded expectations entering the second half. We’ll do the same for the defense on Wednesday.

We talk quite a bit about the play of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger through eight games and that leads to us answering a few more listener emails concerning him. We also get to a few more emails before closing out the Monday show.

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

    DT to your points about Ben I think the easy fix for point 3 which I believe is the regression of reads is to get him back more to old Ben which ties to your point 2 of stepping up in the pocket.

    I know the risk of injury is there if he does more backyard ball but that is also Ben at his best. I don’t believe if he plays exactly to the level of his first half that we can win a Superbowl. He has to be somewhat better.

    So I guess the question is do we accept what Ben is without backyard ball or do we add in a little more risk in hopes that we get the best Ben going forward.

    Random question: Do you think Wade Phillips makes the HOF based on his work as a DC?
