The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Ravens Preview, Tomlin Tuesday, Bengals Recap, JuJu’s Appeal & More

Season 8, Episode 56 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Wednesday show, David Todd and I open things up by talking about what Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had to say during his Tuesday press conference and that includes us discussing the latest health updates on linebacker Ryan Shazier.

We go over what the Steelers injury report might look like this week based on what Tomlin had to say and discuss the team’s decision to sign linebacker Sean Spence with two inside linebackers currently sidelined with injuries.

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had the appeal of his one-game suspension denied on Tuesday, so David and I discuss that decision in addition to the language used in the original letter.

We move on to discuss some final thought from the Steelers Monday night win over the Cincinnati Bengals and that includes touching briefly on the play of rookie cornerback Cameron Sutton.

With the Steelers set to play the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night, we are pleased to be joined on the show once again by John Eisenberg, who covers the team for As usual, John gives us great insight on the Ravens as we all preview the Sunday night meeting between the two teams.

    I don’t know if you guys ever watched the movie “The Last Boyscout” but there is a scene in the movie where they are playing football and the guy with the ball pulls out a gun and just starts shooting players on his way to the endzone.

    If I hadn’t seen the game on Monday night and just judged it based off of the commentary from sports media about this stuff I would think that is exactly what happened in the Steelers/Bengals game. Just a complete and utter overreaction to what happened during the game.

    Besides what happened to Shazier (which wasn’t even a flagged/dirty play) I think the most disturbing part of the game was the refs calls. I just can’t even listen to it anymore from these guys. So yeah, I think you guys covered it pretty well for the most part.

    Put the best players on the fieldTJ is the only other freak athlete that can play all LB positions, as he has been moved to all of them at points this year in real game time. He is one of the smartest and most intuitive players as well…..If Debo is good to go turn the beast loose, he’ll scare the crap out of Flaco into mistakes maybe turnovers! Go Steelers!

    Are you kidding me David Todd? Did I misunderstand you or are you saying Gronkowski forearming a guy in the head who was truly in a defenseless posture does not merit more than a 1 game suspension? As for JuJu – he WAS attempting a football move. It’s called a block. Illegal sure. I do agree with David Todd that Burfict was not defenseless. Juju was in front of him and likely visible with his peripheral vision. I really don’t understand this game and how it is being adjudicated.

    The referees were terrible; to be honest we got extremely lucky that Juju’s second flag for taunting wasn’t considered a dead ball foul. If they had, both would have been enforced resulting in 30 yards in penalties putting that game tying TD in serious jeopardy.

    Defense gave up two…TWO…3rd and 16s…unsat

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Big Ben received a 4 game suspension for indiscretions not even proven. One quarter of the season! Gronk egregiously hits a guy on the ground with his back to him and suffers a concussion and he receives one game and millions see this. David Todds thinks that more than one game is not fair because of the percent of the fine and miss games seems high. JUST WOW!!!!
