The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Ravens Game Recap, AFC Playoff Picture, Injury Recap & More

Season 8, Episode 58 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night win over the Baltimore Ravens that resulted in them clinching the AFC North.

David and I jump all over the place early on in this podcast but finally settle on talking about the play of the Steelers offense against the Ravens. We talk a lot about the play of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and the two tight ends, Jesse James and Vance McDonald.

Running back Le’Veon Bell was also a huge contributor in the passing game Sunday night and we discuss a few of his touchdowns Sunday night.

We make sure to save plenty of time to talk about the play of the Steelers defense Sunday night which wasn’t great at all. We go over how the Steelers tried to cover up for the loss of inside linebacker Ryan Shazier and how safety Sean Davis had a miserable night.

The officiating wasn’t great Sunday night and thus David and I recap a few calls and non-calls that happened during the game. We also go over a few questionable play calls and coaching decisions that took place late in the game.

We give you an update on the Steelers injury situation following their win over the Ravens and discuss a roster move that will likely take place on Tuesday.

David and I close the show by resetting the AFC playoff picture and start taking a small look ahead to the Steelers week 15 home game against the New England Patriots. We also talk briefly about the NFL playoff picture as Week 14 comes to a close.

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

  • david

    when is best picture for shazier to get out of hospital will it be before season is over

  • srdan

    We need to be real with ourselves the next few weeks.. This team is built on 50s playmaking ability. We were gutted of that. Our scheme needs to transition. The next few weeks will be rough. But I have full faith in this coaching staff.

  • Thomas

    So what linebacker are we going to steal off another team’s practice squad? I’m done with Spence, he’s the reason we drafted Shazier to begin with…I don’t want anyone to even suggest Moats is a legit option either.

  • MC

    If they keep Deebo off the field and leave Bud on there I will lose a lot of faith. Bud is not only invisible, he gives up big plays by not being able to set the edge or shed blocks in the run game.

  • MC

    Absolutely right guys. This offense can function much better if they spread the ball around and take the underneath stuff. Its there a lot, it’s high percentage and you have a back like Bell who can turn a checkdown into first downs and sometimes more.
    If they keep doing that then the over the top stuff will open up, its like they put the horse before the cart earlier in the year with those deep balls!

  • Thomas

    I think the play that most exemplifies the defensive game for Spence and Moats is the one where Spence gets outflanked to the corner on a flat route by their fullback for a touchdown lol

  • David Wachob

    Need to get dupree out of the lineup! Can we put a fast db at shazier’s position to compensate for lack of speed from Spence and Moats? Need a new special team’s coach as the current disaster has gone on tooooo long.
