Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 28, 2019 (Pt. 1)


BUT NO SNOW. THAT’S THE NEWS FOR NOW. WE WILL SEE YOU ON KDKA AT 11:00 FOR THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL JOSH TAYLOR STARTS NOW. RIGHT NOW, PITTSBURGH’S BEST SPORTSTER WAS ABOUT TO BEGIN. CALL US OR TWEET US. WE HAVE GOT THINGS TO TALK ABOUT. AND THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, PAUL, WELCOME TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. AND HOST JOSH TAYLOR IN TONIGHT FOR RICH WALSH. JOINED IN THE STUDIO BY A MAN WHO HAS WAY TOO LONG OF A RESUME TO RUDLOFF. PROBABLY AS LONG AS MINE., L IS FOR THE TRIP. DOES WORK AS FAR AS RADIO. HE ALSO DOES A LITTLE PLAY-BY- PLAY. 10 BANISTERS WINDS TUTOR. IS THAT THE WAY OF DOING THE LETTERMAN MY NEXUS NEEDS TO REDUCTION. THAT WAS ALSO GALA FOR NEXUS S. ALL WE NEEDED WAS TO FIRMS ON EITHER SIDE OF US. HAVE YOU SEEN THE BETWEEN TWO FERNS MOVIE YET ON NETFLIX? I HAVE NODDED I SHOULD. IT’S TREMENDOUS. IT’S EVERYTHING IT’S CRACKED UP TO BE. ‘S EKING APPLIANCE FOR MOVIES, WE DON’T WANT TO TRY TO RUIN PEOPLE’S NIGHTS WITH SPOILERS OR ANYTHING. BUT, WE DO HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS. I JUST OF THESE HIGHLIGHTS A FEW MOMENTS AGO. PENGUINS LOSE TO THE SABRES. IN A SHOOTOUT, 3-2 THIS AFTERNOON AT PPG PAIN SERENE A. IT WAS THE PRESEASON FINALE IF YOU WILL. THOSE TWO TEAMS MEET ON THURSDAY NIGHT IN THE REGULAR SEASON. OPENER. HOWEVER, A LITTLE BIT OF BAD NEWS. SIDNEY CROSBY IN THE SLOT GETS HIT BY AN ERRANT SHOT. LEAVES THE GAME. DOES NOT RETURN. BRYAN RUST ALSO LEAVES A GAIN. MIKE SULLIVAN I BELIEVE AFTER THE GAMES OF BOTH PLAYERS WILL BE EVALUATED TOMORROW. YOU DON’T WANT TO GET TOO CAUGHT UP IN THINGS THAT HAPPENED. BUT, IS THIS A PRECAUTIONARY THING? THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS SERIOUS? YOU HOPE IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS JUST PRECAUTIONARY. YOU HOPE THEY ARE JUST EVALUATING GUYS BECAUSE THEY HAVE ABOUT A WEEK BEFORE THE REGULAR SEASON STARTS. THE INTERESTING SITUATION THAT THOSE GUYS ARE HURT, THE PENGUINS ARE SO BAD I EXPECT THEM TO TRADE THEIR FIRST-ROUND DRAFT PICK FOR MEGAN FITZPATRICK. SIDNEY CROSBY IS OUT, IMMODEST WELL TO START LOOKING AHEAD TO SPRING TRAINING AGAIN. 2019 IT ANY WORSE? SERIOUSLY. THIS IS HOW RUMORS GET STARTED. PEOPLE FREAK OUT. I — THE TRIP THIS WEEK. I JUST WANT TO SKIP BY THANKSGIVING, SKIP BY CHRISTMAS AND JUST GET TO NEW YEAR’S. BECAUSE, I WANT 2019 TO BE OVER. TEAR DOWN THE HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS. START SINGING AULD LANG SYNE. LET’S POP THE CHAMPAGNE. FORGET THE PUMPKIN SPICE BEERS. WAS JUST A FANCY CALENDAR. BECAUSE IT GOT TO GET OUT OF 2019. AND WE KEEP THE PUMPKIN BEER? THOSE AGE NICELY INTO JANUARY IF YOU WANT. BUT YOU SEE WHERE I’M GOING WITH THIS? IF HE IS REALLY OUT FOR A WHILE, — WE DON’T KNOW. OBVIOUSLY. YOU HOPE IT’S NOTHING – I THOUGHT LEAST ONE REPORTED THAT HE LEFT THE BUILDING WITHOUT ANY SORT OF APPARATUS, MEANING LIKE A WALKING BOOT. NO AIRCAST. NO CRUTCHES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I DIDN’T HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT RUSS GETTING HIT IN THE HAND. AND HOW ABOUT THIS? EVEN IF — IS OKAY, THEY MIGHT HAVE WANTED TO TRADE RUST. TO GET ON THE PATH AND GIVE THEMSELVES SOME CALF FLEXIBILITY. THEIR OFF-SEASON. THAT’S TRUE. IT ALSO SPEAKS TO THIS, TOO. BECAUSE, THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO SORT OUT AT LEAST ONE — ARE STILL TRYING TO SORT OUT THE LINES, AT LEAST THE TOP 6 OF THE TOP 9. THAT’S A WHOLE ANOTHER DYNAMIC THAT GETS MOVED INTO THIS AS WELL. FOR SURE. THE FLEXIBILITY HAS BEEN BROUGHT BY GUYS LIKE DOMINIQUE CAHOON AND BRANDON TANIS. HELPS IN THAT CAPACITY, TEDDY BULGER HELPS IN THE CAPACITY OF COURSE THEY GOT MANEUVERABLE PARTS. BUT YOU DON’T WANT BRYAN RUST I THINK TO BE A FOURTH LINER AT HIS CAT PIT LET ALONE A GUY THAT CAN’T BECAUSE HE’S HURT TICKING UP THAT MUCH PARTY AIRCAST. I UNDERSTOOD HE CAN MOVE MOVE GUYS AROUND BASED ON THE INJURY LIST AND WHATNOT. BUT THIS IS, ESPECIALLY LATE IN THE PRESEASON, THE WORST POSSIBLE OPTION. THE WORST POSSIBLE OPTION OF SIN GETS HURT. LIKE I SAID, JUST THE LATEST IN ANOTHER, WE ARE RETURNING TO THE PENGUINS FOR OPTIMISM. HOPEFULLY SIDNEY CROSBY –. AGREED. MIKE SULLIVAN SAID BOTH PLAYERS WILL BE EVALUATED TOMORROW. SO, HOPEFULLY IT’S NOTHING SERIOUS. LET’S MOVE ON TO THE STUFF THAT IS. SEMI SERIOUS. WILL TALK STEELERS AND BENGALS. THEY PLAY MONDAY NIGHT. ONE OF THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS I TOOK AWAY FROM LAST WEEK’S GAME AGAINST SAN FRANCISCO, WAS A JAMES CONNER, WE SAW SNOW, WE SAW GUYS — US THINK DEON PATE JOHNSON HAD A COUPLE OF THEM. WE DIDN’T SEE A LOT OF JAYLEN SAMUELS. THAT WAS DISCUSSED AT ONE POINT THIS WEEK. FRIDAY JAELYN SAMUELS TALKS ABOUT HE EXPECT TO BE PART OF THE GAME PLAN. MASON RUDOLPH ADMITTED I GOT TO GET THE BALL TO — HE ACTUALLY ADMITS IT, TOO. SO, THERE’S A LOT OF DIFFERENT DYNAMICS ARE AS FAR AS HIS OFFENSE. STILL TRYING TO FIND ITS WAY TO FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS. FOR SURE. WE CAN DIAGNOSE ANY NUMBER OF DIFFERENT ISSUES HERE. AS TO WHY THE OFFENSE IS NOT WORKING. JAYLEN SAMUELS, NOT GETTING THE BALL AND 12 SNAPS I THINK IS DOWN THE PECKING ORDER. BUT IT JUST SPEAKS TO A LARGER ISSUE, JOSH, OF THEM NOT UNDERSTANDING WHAT THEY HAVE TALENT WISE, THEIR INABILITY TO CAPITALIZE ON IT. AND OBVIOUSLY, WITH BEN ROETHLISBERGER BEING OUT, THAT HINDERS THE EASIEST WAY TO GET THE BALL TO THE PLAYMAKERS HANDS. BUT, I JUST FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE BUYERS REMORSE AND ALL THE RUNNING BACKS. JAYLEN SAMUELS HAS DONE NOTHING TO SHOW ME THAT HE CAN’T RUN MORE IF THEY WANTED TO RUN HIM OR. IF ANYTHING IS PROBABLY –. AND BENNY SNELL, THEY DRAFTED HIM TO SUPPLEMENT OR COMPLEMENT JAMES CONNER. HE WASN’T GREAT IN THE PRESEASON. YOU HAVE BARELY SEEN THEM IN THE REGULAR SEASON. AND EVEN CONNOR, I FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE NEVER, DESPITE LAST YEAR, THEY HAVE GOT A QUICKER TRIGGER WITH HIM THAN THEY EVER HAD WITH LEAD WELL. WHEN THE RUNNING GAME IS NOT GOING, THEY STOPPED GOING TO HIM. AND NOW, THE FUMBLING LATE IN CRUCIAL SITUATIONS MADE CLEVELAND, DENVER OR LAST WEEK, I THINK ALSO WAS A HIT IN THE GUT FOR THE CONFIDENCE WHEN IT COMES TO CONNOR AS WELL. THERE ARE EITHER GUYS WEREN’T LIVING UP TO WHAT THEY WANTED TO OUR GUYS THEY HAVE NOT FULLY INVESTED IN. SAMUELS, I LIKE HIM AS AN ALL- AROUND GUY. I JUST DON’T LIKE — THE FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE THEM. 12 SNAPS LAST WEEKEND ZERO TOUCHES. HOW MUCH OF THAT IS ON THEM NOT UTILIZING ENOUGH? HOW MUCH IS THAT EN ROUTE OF NOT FINDING HIM TO SHUT DOWN. HE DID USE McDONALD A LITTLE BIT, McDONALD IS OUT. MAYBE SAMUELS ABSORBS SOME OF CAPACITY. WE GOT TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE TITAN POSITION. MAYBE WE’LL DO THAT WHEN WE COME BACK. PLUS WE WILL TAKE CALLS. 412-575-2600 ON THE BORDERS IMPORTERS HOTLINE. JOSH TAYLOR, TIM BEN’S. THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY IRELAND CONTRACTING.
