Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: November 2, 2019 (Pt. 1)


THANK YOU VERY MUCH PAUL WILL COME TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING SPORTS CALL. I’M HOST JOHN TAYLOR WITH THE PRETTY INSTANCE INTERESTING EVENING. WE GOT STEELERS AND COLTS TOMORROW AT HEINZ FIELD. SO LET’S START WITH THE STEELERS. ROSTER MOVE THEY MADE TODAY. THEY PROMOTE TONY BROOKS JAMES THE RUNNING BACK AT THE PROX PRACTICE SQUAD. THAT MEANS THEY WAIVED WIDE RECEIVER DANTE MONCRIEF. I’M ONE OF THESE PEOPLE THAT WAS A DANTE MONCRIEF GUY. HE DID NOT LIVE UP TO THE EXPECT PATIENT THEY HAVE FOR HIM, SIGNING HIM TO A TWO-YEAR CONTRACT FOR HIM $9 MILLION. ISSUES WITH DROPS WE KNOW ABOUT IT IT’S WELL DOCUMENTED. HE HAD TO MOVE ON. NOW THEY ARE STUCK WITH THE GUYS THAT ARE LEFT OVER. NOT TO MENTION WERE DEALING WITH IT ISSUES IN THE RUNNING BACK POSITION. TONY BURKE JAMES PROBABLY MEANS BENDING SNAIL OUT AND JAMES CONNER HAVE A BARE-BONES BACKFIELD AS FAR AS GUYS AVAILABLE. WE ARE LOOKING AT TREY EDMONDS AND JAELYN SANDERS COMING BACK HEALTHY. YOU HAVE A LOT OF THIN AVAILABILITY AT THE RUNNING BACK POSITION. THAT MAKES THIS GAME INTERESTING. NO T.Y. HILTON WHO IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE OFFENSE. HE’S A TOP RECEIVER HE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THE GAME. THAT MAKES IT A LITTLE MORE EASY FOR THE STEELERS DEFENSE IF YOU DON’T HAVE TO COVER A GUY LIKE HILTON IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR THE DB TO HOLD THE OTHER GUYS UP AND MAKE PLAYS BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. HOWEVER THEY HAVE OTHER GUYS IT CAN MAKE THE PLAY. DORSETT OWED GOOD QUARTERBACK HE DOESN’T MAKE CRAZY MISTAKES. IT WON’T BE THAT EASY EVEN THOUGH THEY DON’T HAVE T.Y. HILTON. IT’S A LOT TO EXPECT AND A LOT TO IT ANTICIPATE WITH THESE TWO TEAMS COMING INTO MATCHUP AT 1:00 TOMORROW. JOIN US OVER AT KDKA FOR PREGAME COVERAGE STARTING AT 1130. THEN AFTER THE GAME MAKE THE SWITCH OVER TO HERE FOR THIS EXTRA POINT AND SPECIAL EDITION OF THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. WE WILL HAVE YOUR COVERAGE ON THE PREGAME AND DURING THE GAME AND THEN YOUR POST GAME COVERAGE ON PITTSBURGH CW. STRUCK GEORGIA TECH, THIS IS THE GAME WHERE THESE GORDON UP POINTS TO WIN. THE DEFENSE DID A GREAT JOB IN THE SECOND HALF KEEPING GEORGIA TECH OUT OF THE END ZONE. HOWEVER, TURNOVERS WERE BIG PROBLEM. HANDFUL OF THE FIRST HALF AND FUMBLES AND INTERCEPTION. THEY CAN BECAME MOOT TOWARDS THE END OF THE DAME. THE ONE FUMBLE RESULTED IN A TOUCHDOWN AND A LONG PASS ON THE NEXT PLAY BUT FOR PICK I GIVEN A TO THE DEFENSE THEY DID EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO SECURE WINNING THE GAME. BEEN UP ONLY 10 POINTS ON THE ROAD WHICH IS NOT EASY TO DO IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL. THEY PLAYED WELL ENOUGH TO WIN THE GAME. THE OFFENSE WE TALKED ABOUT THIS NOW. WE HAVE I IMAGINE FANS HAVE FRUSTRATIONS. I’M PRETTY SURE THEY DO. ESPECIALLY WITH THE PLAYCALLING. I’VE SEEN A LOT OF THAT MAY BE ON SOCIAL PETEY MEDIA PEOPLE CALLING IN CRITICISM FROM MARK WHIPPLE. SOME OF THAT IS WARRANTED BUT I LOOK AT IT IS THE PLAYERS HAVING TO EXECUTE BETTER. PICKET SAID AS MUCH AFTER THE LOSS TO MIAMI HE IS OF THE LOSS WAS UNDER PRESENT ON THE PLAYERS. I DON’T THINK THIS GAME IS 100% ON THE PLAYERS AS MUCH AS LAST WEEK WAS. THERE IS AN ISSUE AS FAR AS EXECUTING ON THE OFFENSE. TWO NUMBERS REFLECTED AS MUCH. THEY CONTINUED TO GET AFTER THE QUARTERBACK ONE OF THE BEST PASS RUSHING TEAMS. THAT IT DOES COME TOWN TO CAN YOU BE CONSISTENT ENOUGH ON OFFENSE TO BE TEAMS THAT ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR MISTAKE OR SHOULD I SHOULD SAY THOSE THAT ARE GONNA TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU FACE THE TEAM THAT IS GOING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE CAN YOU OVERCOME THOSE MISTAKES AND CAN YOU STOP MAKING THE MISTAKES AND TRY TO BECOME MORE CONSISTENT. THAT’S A QUESTION THAT STICKS OUT FOR.. THEY ARE 6-3, BOWL ELIGIBLE, NOT A GREAT THING TO CELEBRATE NOW BUT THERE IS A LOT TO BE PLAYED. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE VIRGINIA AND NORTH CAROLINA ON THE FIELD. HOPEFULLY FINAL SCORE FOR THAT SOON. WE WILL KNOW WHETHER OR NOT IT IS ON THE TOP OF THE DIVISION OR GET THE WINDOW BEHIND VIRGINIA. WE SHOULD KNOW THAT IN A FEW MINUTES. PENGUINS LOSING TO EDMONTON TODAY. SO MANY MISSES AND SCORING CHANCES. 52 CHOPS ON THAT. THEY DID EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO GET THE PUCK INSIDE THE NET COULD NOT GET IT DONE. KENNY MARK AND IN RETURNING FROM AN INJURY, HE IS OUT FOR A MONTH. A LOT OF THINGS WORKED OUT. HE LOOKS LIKE A GUY THAT HAS TO GET BACK INTO THE FLOW OF THINGS HE MISSED A MONTH THAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE IT. WE GOT SOUGHT GOOD GOALTENDING IN THE GAME. MURRAY GOING BACK AND FORTH. IT A LOT OF SCORING CHANCES IN THE THIRD. GOING INTO OVERTIME. THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE. PENGUINS HAD A CHANCE TO SCORE. LEON DRY SETTLE BRINGS IT ALL THE WAY BACK AND GIVES PASS THE OTHER THREE MEN IN THE GOLD JERSEYS AND BEATS MATT MURRAY FOR THE GAME-WINNER. THAT’S A DIFFERENCE IN THIS ONE. IT WAS EDMONTON TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THEIR OPPORTUNITIES. PENGUINS DID NOT CASH IN ON ANY OF THEM. THEY ARE LONG GOAL AND SHORTHANDED. A LOT OF FRUSTRATION. THE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, THEY DID A LOT OF THINGS RIGHT. OFFENSIVE LEAVE AT A LOT OF SCORING CHANCES. JAKE DENZEL HAD A CHANCE TO IN THE NET IN A POWER PLAY AND IT TRICKLED AND SAILED RIGHT OVER THE GOALMOUTH. I THINK THAT’S THE SECOND TIME THAT’S HAPPENED IT HAPPENED TO PATRICK CORN QUEST NOT TOO LONG AGO. WHEN YOU DON’T GET THE BOUNCES IT SEEMS LIKE THE LACK OF RESULTS MIGHT REFLECT A LACK OF EFFORT THAT I DON’T THINK THAT’S THE CASE. AT IT IS JUST THEM NOT GETTING THE BRAKES THAT THEY NEED. BORDAS AND BORDAS HOTLINE GIVE US A CALL. OR GIVE US A SHOUT. SEE YOU IN A FEW.
