Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: October 8, 2019 (Pt. 2)


YEAR, PROBABLY LONGER. MAYBE THEY WILL DECIDE IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON. IF HE IS ON THE MARKET THERE ARE 10 TEAMS THAT WOULD HIRE HIM IN A SECOND. HE IS HIGHLY REGARDED. MORE AROUND THE LEAGUE THEN IN PITTSBURGH. IT’S A JUICY STORY. NOTHING TO DO WITH SUNDAY OR THE REST OF THE GAMES.>TONY JOINING US LIVE ON THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. I WAS AT THE PENGUINS HOME OPENER. YOUR DAUGHTER DOES A FANTASTIC JOB. SHE WORKS BOTH SIDES. SHE HAS TO GET SOME SLEEP. HODGES. WHO IS NEXT. LYNCH. IF RUDOLPH IS OKAY TO PLAY, BE THERE. IF NOT, LYNCH. I DON’T KNOW IF I AGREE. IF RUDOLPH IS CLEARED TO BACKUP HE IS CLEARED TO PLAY. AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED. THEY WOULD START HIM. YOU WOULD HAVE TO ACTIVATE LYNCH. YOU WOULD START WITH RUDOLPH IF HE CAN PLAY. WE DON’T KNOW UNTIL A PLAYS OUT. DID TOMLIN LET IT SLIP WHEN HE WAS ASKED ABOUT WASHINGTON. I HAVE TO GO ON THE ROAD WITH MY THIRD QUARTERBACK AND PLAY A HALL OF FAME CALIBER QUARTERBACK. HE LET IT SLIP. CONCUSSIONS. I SHOULD SAY THAT. I’M NOT A DOCTOR. I WOULD BET ON IT BEING HODGES. AT LEAST HE SHOWED HE CAN COME INTO A GAME BIG AT HOME. HE SHOWED HE WAS CAPABLE OF HANDLING IT. HE HAD TO COME IN COLD. IT WAS INTERESTING. TOMLIN SAID IT WAS A HUGE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU COME IN COLD FOR ONE QUARTER AS OPPOSED TO WHEN YOU PRACTICE ALL WEEK. MASON RUDOLPH WHEN HE REPLACED ROETHLISBERGER WAS REALLY GOOD IN THE SECOND HALF. THE NEXT WEEK AGAINST SAN FRANCISCO CONTROL ON HIM NOT LETTING HIM THROW. OR WHETHER YOU CHOSE NOT TO. I DIDN’T THINK HE WAS NEARLY AS GOOD. HE HAD TWO TOUCHDOWNS. HE FOLLOWED IT UP WITH A NICE PERFORMANCE. EVEN IN THIS GAME AGAINST BALTIMORE. 9-9. I WANT TO BELIEVE IN HODGES. HE WAS NOT DRAFTED, SIGNED BY ANYONE. TEAMS ARE BEGGING FOR QUARTERBACKS. HE HAD TO GET A TRYOUT. HE WAS CUT IN THE FINAL CUT AND GOT BROUGHT BACK. I’M NOT SURE YOU CAN PLAY. WE WILL FIND OUT. I HOPE SO. IT WOULD BE A WONDERFUL STORY. THERE’S A REASON HE WASN’T DRAFTED, SIGNED. HE WASN’T EVEN SIGN. HE HAD A TREMENDOUS CAREER. MAYBE IT WAS AN OVERSIGHT. YOU NEVER KNOW.>TIM? TWO I WANTED TO COMMEND YOU ON YOUR COLUMN YESTERDAY ABOUT STEELER FANS, MIKE TOMLIN. A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH, A SORE SUBJECT. THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE AREA WHO STILL HAVE AN ISSUE WITH A BLACK MAN COACHING THEIR TEAM. I THINK THERE IS SOME TRUTH. NOT EVERYBODY. NOT EVERYONE WHO CRITICIZES TOMLIN IS A RACIST BY ANY STRETCH. I BELIEVE THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE. THAT IS ONE REASON THEY DON’T LIKE HIM. IT IS SAD. YOU JUDGE BY HOW HE DOES. HE ONLY ONE 3 PLAYOFFS SINCE 2010 THAT A SPARE. NOT EVERYONE WHO CRITICIZES HIM IS DOING IT FROM A RACIAL STANDPOINT. THAT SHOULD BE OVER AND DONE WITH. MIKE TOMLIN HAD A NICE RUN. WE WILL SEE WHAT HE CAN DO GIVEN THE SITUATION. THE OTHER TEAMS ARE FACING SIMILAR ADVERSITIES.>WE WILL GET TO TELEPHONE CALLS NEXT. THIS IS IRELAND CONTRACTING
