Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 19, 2019 (Pt. 1)


GET YOUR LATEST NEWS, WEATHER AND SPORTS AT ANY TIME ON, ON KDKA.COM . RIGHT NOW PITTSBURGH’S BEST SPORT SHOW IS ABOUT TO BEGIN, CALL US, WE GOT THINGS TO TALK ABOUT ON THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. ALL RIGHT, THANKS VERY MUCH AND GOOD EVENING EVERYONE, WELCOME TO ANOTHER EDITION OF THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL, 412- 575-2600 IS THE NUMBER ON THE HOTLINE, IT IS GOING TO BE A VERY BUSY WEEKEND OF FOOTBALL. AND THE PITTSBURGH STEELERS OF COURSE IN DESPERATE NEED OF A WIN AT 0-2 AND THEY HAVE MASON RUDOLPH NOW WHO IS GOING TO BE THE MAN IN CHARGE. THEY ALSO HAVE A NEW STARTER ON DEFENSE AS — FITZPATRICK WILL GET HIS FIRST OPPORTUNITY AFTER GETTING CRAMMED INTO PITTSBURGH, THE FIRST DAY HE SHOWED UP HE’S BEEN IN PRACTICE THE FIRST TWO DAYS, BE AGAIN TOMORROW AND THEN THEY HAD UP TO SAN FRANCISCO ON SATURDAY AS UNDERDOGS. PAUL ZEISS OF THE PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE IS HERE AND PAUL, THIS IS GOING TO BE INTERESTING HOW IT PLAYS OUT. BECAUSE ED BOUCHARD WAS TALKING AND HAVE ANOTHER REPORT TONIGHT AT 11 O’CLOCK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS IF MASON RUDOLPH REALLY RUNS THROUGH THE SEASON AND IS VERY SUCCESSFUL AND THEN BEN ROETHLISBERGER COMES BACK HEALTHY? WHAT DO YOU DO. TRADE BEEN. I MEAN YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY BUT IT’S VERY SIMILAR, ISN’T IT IS SIMILAR TO THE SITUATION WITH MURRAY AND FLEURY? FLORY WAS THE GUY AND LED THEM TO ANOTHER STANLEY CUP AND WAS THE MAN, AND THE GUY THAT WAS 21 YEARS OLD CAME IN AND THEY PROVED THAT THEY COULD WIN WITH HIM, HE WAS YOUNGER AND CHEAPER, WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO KEEP BOTH? I THINK IT WOULD BE A BAD IDEA . FINANCIALLY THEY COULD. TO ME, EITHER IT’S GOING TO BE MASON RUDOLPH’S TEAM OR IT IS BEN’S TEAM. IF IT IS BEN’S TEAM, I GUESS, IF THEY GO EIGHT AND EIGHT, AND HE’S JUST OKAY, THAT’S DIFFERENT. BUT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT IF HE GETS, WHAT IF HE GOES, PLAYS REALLY REALLY WELL AND THEY GET TO THE PLAYOFFS. AND WHEN A GAME OR TWO ONCE THEY ARE THERE. AND HE PLAYS REALLY WELL, THEN IT IS SIMPLE TO ME, YOU TRADE BEN ROETHLISBERGER. I DON’T THINK IT WOULD BE THAT SIMPLE . THAT IS THE WAY OF THE WORLD. THE YOUNG GUYS COME IN AND TAKE OVER GUYS JOBS IN SPORTS ALL THE TIME. SO WHERE DO YOU SEE FITZPATRICK, HE’S CAPABLE OF DOING A LOT, HE’S VERY GOOD IN THE SLOT, HE COULD DO A LOT OF THINGS, WHAT DO YOU THINK ? I THINK HE’S VERY GOOD BUT TO HEAR SOME PEOPLE TALK, I’VE ACTUALLY HEARD PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HOW HE IS HERE TO SAVE THE SEASON. HE’S A SAFETY FOR GOD SAKE, THE BOTTOM LINE IS HE’S GOING TO HELP. HE GIVES THEM HELP IN A POSITION OF NEED. BUT DEVIN BUSH HAS GOT TO PLAY BETTER. YOU KNOW WHAT, THE TWO OUTSIDE LINEBACKERS HAVE TO PLAY BETTER THAN THEY PLAYED. K MAYWOOD HAS TO PLAY BETTER, THEY GOT ENOUGH GUYS I THINK NOW WHERE THEY SHOULD BE GOOD ON DEFENSE BUT ALL OF THOSE GUYS HAVE TO PLAY WELL. I THINK THIS FITZPATRICK IS A GOOD ADDITION, I THINK IT WILL HELP THE DEFENSE AND THEY’LL BE BETTER BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF OTHER GUYS ON THAT DEFENSE THAT JUST HAVEN’T PLAYED WELL . THEY HAVE A LOT OF NUMBER ONES. INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, ONE GUY THAT HAS PLAYED REASONABLY WELL IS STEPHEN NELSON AND ALL WE HEARD WHEN HE CAME OVER WAS THAT HE STINKS. I NEVER HEARD THAT, I THOUGHT HE WAS GOOD AND HE WAS GOOD IN KANSAS CITY. HE GAVE UP SOMEPLACE BUT HE ALSO MADE PLAYS. LET’S TALK ABOUT PIT NOW, THEY HAVE CENTRAL FLORIDA COMING UP AND THEY WERE HEAVY UNDERDOGS, CENTRAL FLORIDA HAS ONE 27 REGULAR-SEASON GAMES IN A ROLE, THEY SHOULD CELEBRATE, HERE THEY ARE UNDEFEATED COMING OFF A 45-27 WIN AGAINST STANFORD WHICH STANFORD IS NOT WHAT THEY USED TO BE BUT STILL, IT’S STANFORD. ALL I THINK THIS IS A TOUGH ASSIGNMENT FOR PIT. OF OFFENSE THAT SEEMS TO GIVE PIT A LOT OF PROBLEMS OVER THE LAST FOUR OR FIVE YEARS, THEY DO THE SPREAD OFFENSE, ALL THIS STUFF THAT THESE HIGH-TECH OFFENSES DO, BUT PIT NUMBER ONE I THINK THEIR DEFENSE IS PROBABLY BETTER THAN IT HAS BEEN SINCE NARDI WAS HE GOT HERE. YOU SAW THE SECOND HALF OF LAST SEASON THE DEFENSE ACTUALLY GOT BETTER AND BETTER AND AS LAST SEASON WENT ON YOU STARTED TO SEE THAT THIS HAS A CHANCE TO BE A PRETTY GOOD DEFENSIVE TEAM AND THEN OF COURSE THIS YEAR THEY ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN THAT TO THE THREE GAMES THEY PLAYED. THE REALITY IS, THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP CENTRAL FLORIDA UNDER 30 POINTS TO HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN . THAT’S GOING TO BE HARD TO DO. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY CAN DO IT BUT THEY ARE MORE? TO DO IT THIS YEAR THAN THEY EVER HAVE BEEN. THE FLIP SIDE OF IT IS CAN THEY SCORE, IF THEY CAN ONLY SCORE LIKE 17 OR 20 POINTS IN THIS GAME THEY AREN’T GOING TO WIN. THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SCORE MORE POINTS TO WIN . BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THEIR DEFENSE SLOWS THEM DOWN IT DOESN’T TOTALLY STOP THEM AND THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SCORE. AND MEANWHILE THE PARTS LOST PIRATES. ON ANOTHER BASEBALL NOTE, AARON HAVE BACK TO BACK 101 SEASONS AND PEOPLE WILL SAY WILL THAT’S NEW YORK AND I SAY HE HAD TO NAVIGATE THROUGH A BUNCH OF INJURIES, HE HAD A LOT OF GUYS ON HIS LIST. BUT REAL QUICK THE PIRATES, AFTER WHAT WE’VE SEEN THIS WEEK , I DON’T EVEN WANT TO GET INTO THAT SITUATION WITH VASQUEZ WHICH IS DISGUSTING, WHAT MESSAGE, ABOUT 30 SECONDS HERE, WHAT MESSAGE, THE WHOLE SEASON HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE SEASON AND IT INS UP WITH A GUY NAMED NIGHTMARE GETTING A NIGHTMARISH TO BE IT’S JUST ONE MORE EMBARRASSMENT AND I KNOW IT’S NOT THEIR FAULT BUT BOB THIS HAS GOT TO BE, THIS OFF-SEASON THEY HAVE GOT TO JUST COMPLETELY CLEAN HOUSE. THIS IS ABSURD. IF THEY COME BACK WITH THE MANAGEMENT TEAM INTACT, THEN THEY WANT TO PLAY OVER THERE WITH 500 FANS EVERY NIGHT. IS IMPERATIVE THAT BOB SHOWS UP AND SPEAKS A LITTLE BIT, TOO . ABSOLUTELY . SITTING IN THE SHOWERS NOT SAYING ANYTHING. WHEN WE COME BACK, WE WILL SHOW YOU SOMETHING ONE HIGHLIGHTS AND A COMMENT ON RUSS THAT’S PRETTY WELL SET, BUT THAT HASN’T STOPPED SOME YOUNG PEOPLE FROM TRYING TO IMPRESS THE COACHES. RIGHT HERE ON THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL, IT’S THE PITTSBURGH CW. NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY IRELAND CONTRACTING
