Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 26, 2019 (Pt. 2)


THE KDKA SPORTS DESK IS BROUGHT TO BIKES AFFINITY. WELCOME BACK XFINITY SPORTS DESK AS WE TALK ABOUT THE SITUATION WITH THE STEELERS THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE ON CINCINNATI WITH A NEW TIGHT IN HIS NAME IS NICK VANEK AND HE COMES OVER FROM SEATTLE. HE WILL LIKELY BE THE STARTER IN THAT DEPARTMENT. ALSO IT IS TAKING ON DELAWARE. THAT’S A GAME THAT COULD BE PROBLEMATIC BECAUSE DELAWARE HAS NOTHING TO LOSE AND IT IS COMING OFF TWO HIGHLY EMOTIONAL GAMES. NEXT THING YOU KNOW PENGUINS OPENING THE SEASON THURSDAY NIGHT. THE STEELERS GAME IS A MUST WIN. IF THEY DO WHEN THEY FOLLOW UP WITH ANOTHER WIN, THINGS SHIFT QUICKLY IN FOOTBALL. A LOT OF PEOPLE COME TO A FOREGONE CONCLUSION, THE SEASON IS OVER. IF THEY WIN TWO IN A ROW AGAINST TWO TEAMS IN THE DIVISION NOT ONLY WILL THEY BE TIED WITH THE RAVENS OR WHOMEVER, THEY WILL HAVE TIEBREAKERS. THE BIG THING IS GETTING A WIN. YOU PLAYING A BAD TEAM ON MONDAY , SOME WOULD SAY THE STEELERS ARE BAD BUT THEY ARE BETTER THAN THE BANGLES. HERE AT HOME, YOU GET THAT WIN. NOW YOU COME IN, YOU COME BACK THE NEXT WEEK AND PLAY THE RAVENS, YOU WIN THAT GAME AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SEASON STARTS TO CHANGE A LITTLE BIT. IF THEY PLAY THE CHARGERS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THEY’VE GOT A SIX-GAME STRETCH, TWICE AGAINST THE BROWNS, THE BANGLES, THE DOLPHINS THERE IS LIKE A SIX-GAME STRETCH COMING UP. THEY COULD WIN REALISTICALLY WIN ALL SIX. IF THEY’D DO, IT PUTS THEM RIGHT BACK INTO IT. THEY’VE GOT A GET A WIN. THEY’VE GOT TO HAVE A GAME AGAINST THE BANGLES WHERE EVERYTHING CLICKS. IT’S BEEN LIKE MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OFF. IN A LOT OF AREAS. BUT IF IT ALL CLICKS, ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE WILL BE CONFIDENCE IN GOING INTO THE NEXT WEEK. YOU HAVE A RICKY QUARTERBACK YOU AVENUE TIED IN HIS NEVER PLAYED HERE YOU HAVE A RUN GAME THAT IS NOT GOOD. OFFENSE OF LINE HAS STRUGGLED. IS SPECIFICALLY BLOCKING. THE WIDE RECEIVING THERE IS NO SEPARATION. OTHER THAN THAT THINGS ARE GREAT. THE OFFENSE HAS ISSUES. THEY NEED TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT PRETTY QUICK. WE’LL SEE ON MONDAY NIGHT. ON THE MEANTIME LET’S GO OUT TO PAUL ON THE NORTH SIDE. HOW ARE YOU PAUL? OKAY. GO AHEAD. I WAS CALLING ABOUT STEELERS. THEY NEED A NEW OFFENSE COORDINATOR AND A NEW DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. THEY SHOULD’VE DONE THAT FOR 10 YEARS AGO. PAUL, WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THAT. I THINK THIS IS A BIG YEAR FOR RANDY PIGMAN. LET’S FIND OUT IF HE CAN COORDINATE OFFENSE OR NOT. WITHOUT BEEN RUFFINS BERGER BASICALLY. HOW MUCH IS HIM AND HOW MUCH IS TOMLIN ON DEFENSE. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS AND THIS SPEAKS TO BOTH OF THEM, THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THE STEAM THEY’VE BEEN USING, IT’S OLD, IS TIRED. I THINK IS STALE. IF THE TEAMS OF FIGURED IT OUT. SO THEY NEED TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO TWEAK IT AND CHANGE IT. SO IT’S NOT PREDICTABLE. LAST YEAR I READ ONE OF THOSE ANONYMOUS HEAD COACHES TALK ABOUT TEAMS. ONE OF THE COMMENTS WAS THE STEELERS ARE THE MOST PREDICTABLE TEAM IN THE LEAGUE. WE HAVE A LOT OF TWEETS LET’S GET SOME OF THE MEN. THIS IS FROM JEFF STEGER. IF CLINT HURDLE LOSES HIS COACHING JOB AND MADDEN GETS FIRED, DO YOU THINK PIRATES WOULD BE OKAY HAVING JOE MADDEN BE MANAGER? NO. JOE MADDEN DOES NOT WANT THIS JOB. REMEMBER THAT DISTINCTLY. ABSOLUTELY NO. YOU KNOW WHERE JOE MADDEN COULD END UP? SAN FRANCISCO. HOW ABOUT THE PHILLIES? I NEVER THOUGHT OF THEM. THE PHILLIES HAVE MORE MONEY AND THEY ARE GOING TO SPEND IT IN THE OFF-SEASON. THEY’VE GOT TO GET RID OF GAVE KAPLAN. THERE’S A TEAM HE COULD GO TO. THE SQUIRREL HILL AREA, P. BOB, ONE COMMENT IN QUESTION. AND THEN GO ON A BREAK. THE ANGELS OVER THE DODGERS. WHAT ABOUT ANTONIO BROWN. MONEY IS MONEY. AT THIS POINT PETE IS AFTER MONEY WHEREVER HE IS GOING TO GET THE MOST THAT’S WHERE HE’S GOING TO GO. HE WANTED $10 MILLION MAY BE CONTRACT. HAVE A CHANCE TO GO TO THE PAYOFFS PLAYOFFS. RIGHT. IN THE TOWN IN THE MINOR LEAGUES. THEY COULD RELEASE ITSELF AND THEY ARE OF THE ROSTER IN THE MAJORS. MY QUESTION. OF THE WACKY SPORTS WORLD. IF YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL BETA COACH OR A MANAGER IS LIKE THE CHARGERS IN THE ORGANIZATION. WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN IN BOSTON? THEY BRING THE GUY INTO A PLACE AND HE WINS THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. THEY WON IT LAST YEAR. THEN YOU HAVE GUYS LIKE MARVIN LEWIS 16 YEARS IN IN CINCINNATI NEVER WON A PLAYOFF GAME. YOU WIN IT SHORTENS YOUR CAREER. THERE’S GOT A B PERSONALITY ISSUES GOING ON. THANKS FOR THE CALL P. BOSTON HAS A JOB NOT MANY PEOPLE WANT TO GO THROUGH. IF THERE GONNA RACKED EVERY YEAR. ALL OF A SUDDEN JIM IS GONE, THEY FIRED NUMBER OSKI. I DID NOT FIND REASON FOR THEM TO DO THAT. HE RUBBED PEOPLE THE WRONG WAY. THAT WAS A BIG PART OF IT. IS SENDS THE WRONG MESSAGE FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GO THERE. JOE MADDEN HAS SUCCESS IN CHICAGO. THEY HAVEN’T HAD THAT KIND OF SUCCESS IN DECADES. NOW HE HAS ONE BAD YEAR WITH A COLLAPSE AT THE END AND ALL THE SUDDEN THAT WILL BE IT FOR HIM. ARE A PART OF IT IS A PERSONALITY THING. THEY DON’T GET ALONG IN DON’T SEE EYE TO EYE. JOE MADDEN IS AN ARROGANT GUY. THE OTHER PART OF IT IS JOE MADDEN DOES NOT LIKE, HE’S NOT A BIG FAN, HE SAID THESE YOUNG WHIZ KIDS. GUYS THAT AREN’T BASEBALL GUYS. I DON’T KNOW WHERE HE’S GOING TO GO WHERE THEY DON’T HAVE THAT AND THAT’S THE PROBLEM. RON IN PENNSYLVANIA. HI GUYS. GO RIGHT AHEAD. THE QUESTION IS, YOU THINK THE PIRATES WILL BE BETTER NEXT SEASON? NO. DO YOU? UNLESS THEY SPEND MONEY AND GET NEW PLAYERS. I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT, THANKS RON. WHAT THEIR PLAN WILL BE HERE. IT’S NOT LIKE THEY HAVE A MINOR- LEAGUE SYSTEM OR BEREFT OF TALENT, OR SURPLUS A TALENT I MEAN. THEY ARE BEREFT OF TALENT. WE SEEN A REVOLVING DOOR OF PITCHERS. THOSE ARE THE TOP GUYS AT THE AAA LEVEL. WHO ELSE IS GOING TO COME UP HERE AND ALL OF A SUDDEN TURN INTO GIVE ME A NAME, WHOSE THAT DODGER PITCHER THAT’S REALLY GOOD THIS YEAR. HIS NAME ESCAPES ME AT THIS POINT. HIS RIGHT HAND PITCHER, YOUNG KID. HE MAY BE THE BEST PITCHER. ANYWAY, THE POINT IS DO THEY HAVE THAT? NO. IF YOU’RE GONNA BRING BACK THE SAME PEOPLE AND EXPECT DIFFERENT RESULTS, THIS WILL BE THE PROBLEM THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE TO SPEND. IS GOING TO COST A LOT OF MONEY. IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SPEND, WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT HERE? THEY MIGHT GO TO, THEY MIGHT TURN OVER THIRD BASE TO BRIAN HAYES BUT OTHER THAN THAT WHAT YOU HAVE. THAT’S THE PROBLEM THAT’S WHY THE FRONT OFFICE NEEDS TO GO. WE WILL FIND OUT. SOMETHING SHOULD COME UP MONDAY OR TUESDAY. APOLOGIES AS PAUL SAID, DURING THE STEELERS GAME. 8:23 ON MONDAY. TAKE MORE OF YOUR CALLS RIGHT HERE.
