Steelers Lounge Podcast #81: Elbie Nickel

It’s another Steelers Lounge Podcast, y’all…

Another depressing loss in the books, which means another depressing podcast. Actually, JJ, Adam and I were about as upbeat as you can expect given the circumstances. We look back and the good — and mostly bad — from Sunday night’s game and then Adam and JJ offers a sliver of hope for the rest of the season.

Adam points to the 2000 Steelers. That was the year Kordell played so poorly in the preseason that Bill Cowher was forced to start Kent Graham. Predictably, Pittsburgh started 0-3. Unpredictably, they then won five straight before eventually missing the playoffs with a 9-7 record. At this point, I don’t think there’s one person who wouldn’t take 9-7.

JJ, meanwhile, thinks the Steelers can beat the Vikings this week, and do the same against the Jets next week, setting up a matchup with the Ravens. If Pittsburgh wins that game they’re 3-3. Ambitious? Sure. Optimistic? Without a doubt.

But, honestly, what are the alternatives?

Alrighty, talking starts promptly…

    I think we can all agree that we have talent on this team. It’s just that it’s not on the O-line, and our talented players on D are not making plays. And our most talented person on O is giving freebies like its Christmas time.

      Go check Ted’s comments. I don’t think he agrees with your first sentence.

        His comments suggest he would agree but then add “but it’s all over the hill.”

          Good point.

    JJ needs to mute his dang phone while he is walking! Geeze!
