The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Titans Game Recap, Camera Angles, Weekly Picks & More

Season 8, Episode 48 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers big Thursday night home win over the Tennessee Titans.

We open with a few notes about the team’s inactive players and then start going drive by drive through the Steelers Thursday night game. We discuss the tale of two halves played by the Steelers offense as well as the turnover-filled defensive showing.

David and I focus on the play of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, the no-huddle usage and go over several big plays that were made and not made during the game.

It’s a lengthy walk back through the game but we make sure to try to recap quite a bit and that includes us talking about the use of SkyCam Thursday night.

We close out this Friday show by quickly giving you our picks for the rest of the Week 11 NFL games against the spread.

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

    Thanks for the Podcasts

    Still listening but 2 things so far you brought up I wanted to talk about.

    1. Kudos for mentioning Davis and the missed tackles. I brought it up last night after the game and started to think I was crazy because I wasn’t seeing a lot of agreement lol. I think it is a really weak part of his game. I know you guys say part of it is because of how quick he plays but that isn’t what I am seeing. I think he is weak at the point of attack and too often wants to “hit” you down instead of wrap up.

    2. The camera angle is an interesting discussion and for me, I think the answer is pretty clear. Well first let me say, I obviously understand this is just an opinion but I think it is generally well supported. You guys bring up a good point that the camera angle allows for some good looks from a game study perspective that you don’t get during normal camera times. In my opinion though, there is a very obvious counter to that and I think it is that most fans are watching the game to be entertained, not study and learn about the game. That is left for afterwards for people who pay to get the all-22 or re-watch the games multiple times.

    I think it is great to sprinkle in every once in awhile during the game. Maybe at like an 80:20 ratio. Give a couple views of what the QB is seeing because I think that is a fantastic way to show just how difficult it is to play that position. And I also liked it for kickoff returns because it gives an interesting perspective on coverage and lane integrity. But outside of that I actually think the camera angle misses more than it adds in. When the QB throws and it doesn’t follow the ball you don’t get a good look at the battles going on and things of that nature.

    So I would definitely like to see it continue to be used but only as a minor spice to what they already have. I am kind of in the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” crowd. I don’t recall ever hearing a lot of complaining about how NFL games were covered and now with the new camera I am seeing a lot of complaining.

    This game highlights the strengths of Steelers offense and play calling. No huddle to start the game was great and should be the primary offense moving forward especially at home. 2nd half play calling was great when utilizing the short passing game. Watching our play makers run after the catch is a game changer and should be a much higher ratio that it currently is. Beat the Patriots at their own game would be priceless, now we just have to do it. Trying to attack a 2 or 3 deep safety line up with deep passing is not efficient. Now that Haley has seen how to beat it, lets take advantage. The short passing game with Vance in the lineup will make us virtually unstoppable. JJ is ok but he is just to slow and that make him a backup at best.

  • So where are all the Ben haters now? Where are all the Haley haters? LOL

    You guys were discussing the whole sky cam deal. I’m not under 30. Heck, I’m not even under 40, but I really liked that sky cam view behind the QB. It was great to see the action from the QB’s perspective. It also gives you a great view of the defense. Watching Ben pass the pall to receivers and watching Bell run from that angle is very cool. I really enjoyed it. Just as long as they show the side view as well afterwards, I’ll be happy. If they are going to continue with this, I hope they’ll eventually add the yellow line at the first down marker like they already do from the side view. That would be great! Yes, it does kind of remind me of Madden Football, only better.

    Martavis is slowly getting back into the mix. Just wait for another week or two. Even if it takes waiting until the playoffs, he’s going to be a great weapon. A.B., JuJu and Martavis? Wow! I can’t wait to see them all at full force. It’s nice to know they aren’t even there yet. Folks, there’s a lot more action coming our way.

    Overall a great job by the entire team against a pretty good Titans team. I love LeBeau, but it sure was nice to torch his defense. In no way did it look as if our players were tired from the short week. I’m glad Bell wasn’t used as often as usual. A nice long rest will have him ready for the Packers.
