The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers ROY Candidates, Listener Questions, Show Origins, Week 9 Picks & More

Season 8, Episode 42 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I open with thanking recent contributors to the show and recap how the podcast came about for any new listeners.

As promised, David and I attempt to answer several questions we received via email from our listeners and as you would expect, several are about Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. We don’t get to answer as many as we would like, so look for more listener questions to be answered on Monday.

Do either wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster or outside linebacker T.J. Watt have a legitimate shot at winning Rookie of the Year awards this season? We discuss their chances.

On the heels of Smith-Schuster being the new franchise record holder of the longest touchdown reception, David and I review a few of the previous record holders and the plays.

We move on to talk about the recent key injuries around the NFL and what they mean for the Steelers and the quarterbacks they’ll face during the second half of the season.

We quickly talk about the Buffalo Bills Thursday night loss to the New York Jets before giving you our Week 9 picks against the spread for all the games this weekend.

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

Thanks for listening and don’t forget to call or email with questions or comments and please pass us along to your friends!

    By my count of the 9 interceptions thrown by Ben this season only 3 of them are on him. I think the biggest problem with the offense is the fact we are to cavalier on 3rd down and short to manageable just get the first. Also, redzone offense is horrendous and must be corrected.

  • Alan Tman

    This defense has played well above what everyone has expected. If the offense plays anywhere near what was expected from them this defense will end up #1. I can’t believe the scrutiny this defense has gotten this year!!! If the offense averages 23 a game we are probably undefeated. This defense is built and predicated on a 90 million dollar offense scoring points. It’s not supposed to be dealing with 35 rushing attempts. The offense doesn’t get half the scrutiny the defense does, and yet 3x times the money is on the offensive side of the football.

    Hey DT..since you have a little free time, take trip out to Vegas and meet up with DB. You guys could do your first ever podcast in person together, would be awesome!

  • Hec

    Ben is #4 in Passing yards, Bell is #2 in Rushing yards, Brown is #1 in receiving yards and receptions. The offense is in the top 5, and defense is top 10. Scoring may be an issue for our offense but I feel pretty good about where our team is at this point of the season 6-2 leading our division and the top seed in the AFC.

    What about Mike Hilton forTeam RoY? It was a good year. If a team can add 2-3 players like this periodically it kinda makes up for a pooper every now and again. Can’t wait to see what Sutton can do.

    Hi guys your insight is most times entertaining and informative, and Thanks. I have to disagree with David Todd on a particular issue. Good leaders lead by example. If you insist your clan, tribe, team, collective united to show unity as a team. You should best lead by example, and not passive aggressively attack a player after doing what you did yourself(standing for National Anthem). I was raised that racism is wrong and ignorant, never attacked Mike Tomlin before. I dont like him for his lack of leadership and and personal fundraising at his home for Hillary,corrupt, Clinton

    Great Podcast, Dave and Hammer. It was nice to hear some Depot history.

  • Jason Skinner

    Ok….long time lurker here but it’s time to speak up.

    1) Steelers Depot NEEDS a discussion board. Others do it but It would be a great 1 stop shop.
    2) I like the talent of the 2017 Steelers but hate the uncharacteristic lack of divisional competition and the low quality teams we have going down the stretch. I would rather be in a dogfight and playing quality teams. Given this teams history of playing down I can easily see 1 or 2 unexpected losses. Its also possible that the lack of quality on the schedule instills a sense of confidence that will undermine their playoff chances……Please comment in the next podcast. It would be a good topic.
