Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 9, 2019 (Pt. 1)


AND SPORTS ANYTIME ON KDKA.COM. RIGHT NOW IT IS THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. PITTSBURGH’S BEST SPORT SHOW IS ABOUT TO BEGIN. CALL US OR TWEET US. WE’VE GOT THINGS TO TALK ABOUT. ON THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. GOOD EVENING EVERYONE. WELCOME TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. YOU CAN TWEET US. OR CALL US ON 412-575-2600 . LOTS TO GET INTO. WE BEGIN WITH THE NEWS OF THE DAY. THE STEELERS MADE A TRADE. MASONRY IT OFF IS THE BACKUP AND JOSH DOBBS BECAME EXPENDABLE. WHEN THERE IS A NEED THERE IS OFTEN A CALL. APPARENTLY THEY GOT A CALL JACKSONVILLE NEEDS HELP. THEY GET A FIFTH-ROUND PICK. IN 2020. IT IS FUNNY HOW IT WORKS IN THE NFL. YOUR VALUE AS A FOOTBALL PLAYER DEPRECIATES. NOT UNLIKE A CAR. HERE HE IS A FOURTH ROUND PICK AND HIS VALUE IS BETTER THAN WHEN HE CAME INTO THE LEAGUE BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN AROUND. AND THEY ONLY GET A FIFTH-ROUND PICK. THAT IS BECAUSE JACKSONVILLE KNEW THE STEELERS WERE PROBABLY MAKING HIM AVAILABLE BECAUSE HE WAS EXPENDABLE. THERE WAS NO REASON TO OVERPAY. THE STEELERS WERE TRYING TO GET SOMETHING FOR HIM. I SAID THIS LAST WEEK WHEN THEY PUT IT TOGETHER. THEY FELT LIKE THEY WERE KEEPING HIM AROUND TO SEE IF SOMEONE WOULD TRADE FOR HIM. NOW, WHAT IS HIS NAME — I FORGET.ABOUT HIM. HE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE AN ATHLETE. WITHOUT HIS HELMET. HE IS ACCURATE. HOW INTERESTING WOULD IT BE IF THEY SIGNED NICK FOLES AND THIS KID TURNS OUT TO BE REALLY GOOD. NOBODY HAS HEARD OF HIM. THE ONE THING WE DID NO, DANTE MONCRIEF WAS A JAGUAR. HE WAS ACQUIRED IN THE OFF- SEASON. WHAT WE SAW LAST NIGHT IN NEW ENGLAND WAS AN ABYSMAL PERFORMANCE. YOU HAVE TO CREDIT NEW ENGLAND. THEY WERE SURGICAL IN THEIR GAME PLAN. SYSTEMATIC IN THEIR PREPARATION. THEY DID EVERYTHING RIGHT. THE STEELERS ALMOST SEEMED APPREHENSIVE OR TOO CONSERVATIVE. IT WAS SUCH A CONTRAST. WE SAW DANTE MONCRIEF IT WAS BROUGHT HERE TO BE A VETERAN PRESENCE HAD FOUR DROPS. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FIVE YEARS IN THE NFL A RECEIVER WAS TARGETED 10 TIMES AND DID NOT PRODUCE 10 YARDS. THREE CATCHES FOUR THREE CATCHES 47 YARDS. THE THING WITH HIM WAS EVERYBODY SAID HIS PROBLEM WAS THE QUARTERBACKS. I DON’T KNOW. NOW YOU PLAY WITH A GOOD QUARTERBACK AND YOU ARE NOT VERY PRODUCTIVE. I WOULD NOT WRITE HIM OFF YET. I THINK IT IS A REASON FOR CONCERN BECAUSE OF THE DROPS. THE OTHER THING, I DON’T KNOW IF WE SAW HIM MAKE ANY COMBAT CATCHES. HE COULD HAVE. HE HAD OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE THOSE CATCHES BUT HE DIDN’T. THAT MAKES YOU NERVOUS. I’LL TELL YOU THE OTHER THING, I KNOW THAT THEY WILL NEVER DO BUT WATCHING LAST NIGHT, I IN ANTONIO BROWN’S OLD SLOT AND MOVE JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER. HE PLAYED MORE THAN I THINK MOST PEOPLE THOUGHT. I THINK HIS SKILL SET IS SOMEWHAT SIMILAR IN TERMS OF THE ROUTES HE WOULD RUN. I UNDERSTAND WHY JAMES WASHINGTON DID NOT GET IN. HE A MONCRIEF CAN FIND FOR 16 TARGETS WITH FIVE RECEPTIONS. THEY ELECTED TO GO ONE-ON-ONE WITH GILMORE. HE WAS VERY PHYSICAL. THAT MAY BE SOMETHING HE SEES MOVING FOR. THE OTHER STORY IS ANTONIO BROWN. A LOT OF DIFFERENT REACTION. I WANT TO GET YOURS. AT THIS POINT, ARE YOU SHOCKED? ARE YOU SURPRISED? I AM NOT. WHAT HE DID IN THE WAY HE DID IT, IT IS DEPLORABLE, SO TO SPEAK. BY THE SAME TOKEN, HE IS NOT THE STEELERS PROBLEM ANYMORE. YES IT IS. HERE IS WHAT I PREDICT. I DON’T THINK HE WILL BE AROUND FOR THE PLAYOFFS. HE WILL IMPLODE AT SOME POINT. THERE WILL BE SOME POINT WHERE BILL BELICHICK WILL TELL HIM TO DO SOMETHING AND HE WILL SAY, NO. AND HE WILL SAY THIS IS HOW WE DO THINGS. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT. WE DON’T NEED YOU. THAT IS THE OTHER THING. THEY DON’T NEED HIM. HAVING HIM AS A LUXURY ITEM. MAYBE SO. THEY GAVE HIM A LOT OF MONEY TO DO THAT. $15 MILLION. TOM BRADY LIKES WHAT HE IS CAPABLE OF DOING. WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT. EVEN THOUGH I THINK IT WAS DEPLORABLE AND THE LEAGUE SHOULD INVESTIGATE. THAT AND YOUR CALLS ARE COMING UP. 412-575-2600. HOW CONCERNED ARE YOU AFTER ONE GAME? IT IS ONE GAME. WE HAVE SEEN BAD STARTS BEFORE. YOUR TAKE IS COMING UP LIVE ON PITTSBURGH’S CW.
