provident and i are going to scrap our own our own jake paul version and and then after that eddie’s gonna walk on milk crates yeah yeah and everyone’s gonna complain about none of this is gonna happen but you know what even if it did mike tomlin would deny that it did what a practice this was it was something man you know here’s something here’s here’s uh the short version of this and for anybody who doesn’t know nfl guidelines restrict what people like me and eddie we can only say so much and we can only show so much and what you have to do is you have to go to participants and interview them and pull it out of them yeah yeah confirm that this thing that you saw you saw right so here’s what happened per what all can be discussed uh chase claypool and minka fitzpatrick got into a fight right now eddie asked me if it was a little fight or a big fight it’s a little scrum like we saw a couple weeks ago is it was it a full one oh it was a full-on okay okay uh-huh so who won well now ask me ask me further if it was just those two guys was it just those two guys no as a matter of fact eddie it wasn’t it’s funny that you ask it actually turned out to be and a player confirmed this by using the terminology a pile it turned out to be a whole lot of everywhere and a bunch of them befitting the way these things go in training camp settings or really in any settings the offense is with the offense right the defense is with the defense what else you got what else do you want to ask me eddie because i just might answer it how many punches oh i didn’t count but i’ll tell you what the hills were alive with the echoes of the sound of these punches going off of helmets so that was the thunder that i heard while i was walking around it wasn’t the uh it wasn’t the actual storms it was the fight mike tomlin afterward uh he he faced reporters as he always does and i asked tomlin to discuss what happened down there here’s how that went do you have any concerns about what happened in the end zone down there what what are you referring to the scrap in the end zone yeah i have no idea what you’re referring to okay so basically he said that everything you just said and he basically he said listen you can ask that question any way you want and he’s not answering i’m not going to help you confirm because they know how these how this game is they’re playing the game they’re playing the game yeah and lucky for us there were also three players who were previously known were going to be available kevin dotson tyson olualu and chris wormley and all three of them right again they weren’t going to sit there and lie to us you know the head coaches in his own realm uh however the head coach did acknowledge as did the players that he gathered the team around him on the field after they had finished all the drills and they did get back to regular work and once they did that the message according to olualu that was sent out to the team is hey no okay we get what’s going on here we get that it’s you know 900 degrees and everything else but don’t do this because we don’t want you breaking your hands we don’t want you so let me ask you this because when i was when i came up playing football coaches loved this they loved when we were back and forth with each other we had that edge do you think tomlin likes this do you think he like deep down inside he likes to see this edge from his team or does he does he hate this kind of you sound like you want to ask me another question about what happened out there tomlin if you had asked me was doing this while it went on not smiling not smile not smile just but just sitting there watching didn’t budge let it happen so make of that what you want make of that what you want um my own inclination with these things although you can tell that eddie and i are having some fun with this is that this stuff happens yeah okay it’s football like you said it’s hot out grown men they’re fighting for two hours well battling himself pointed out well hang on i’ll just let him share it with you in his words look like it’s playful because patrick yelling at each other yeah for those of the guys yeah i think so if you go compete i mean competitors don’t fight they’re two of our biggest competitors so i kind of almost expect it to happen at least once and they are they are two competitors and uh claypool this isn’t the first guy he’s gotten into it with he’s he’s got a little bit of a he’s got that thing man he’s got that edge he’s got that that physicality he’s and minka is like people think of him as joe cool and mr this and everything else but minka is also also has that and i’m going to tell you this too although this is just presumed and it’s hypothetical and i didn’t actually see this but minka didn’t have a great day yeah meaning from the football standpoint and you know those things sometimes yeah those will add up who wants to hear about actual football do you want to hear actual football let’s hear about actual football we can do that right after this come back welcome back he’s eddie provident and i’m dan kovacic we’re both from dk pittsburgh sports and there was actual football news also confirmed common theme of the uh of the off-season the pre-season the practices the offensive line again yeah and i was going to say into the regular season yeah it’s going to be the regular season but the part that was new today was chuckle for being back at right tackle wow and dan moore who’s had a terrific camp absolutely being with the first team at left tackle now this of course means that zach banner wasn’t practicing all of this confirmed by the way okay all like players confirmed and everyone got it okay um i happen to like this a lot i do too i’ve been uh if you listen to the mad chat and eddie show if you’ve heard me talk if you follow my twitter account i am the the driver of the dan moore fans here at the front of the dan moore bus oh i’m the front of the dan moore bus man i love dan moore for the same thing we just talked about in the last segment i love how scrappy he is i love his physicality i love his aggressiveness he gets off the ball quick and he hits people hard i love everything about this kid but what you you and i talked about friday before the game is tempering those expectations and that excitement on a rookie lineman so they’ve been trying but boy do i like daniel okay well this sounds good if we’re playing a video game and it’s not protecting the blind side absolutely of the canton bound franchise quarterback and that’s that’s a different discussion yeah okay so i can like it too but there’s something about this that that obviously has me a lot less comfortable than if banner was healthy now we did not get any kind of definitive word on banner the fact that he didn’t participate is obviously not a great sign and the fact that they made the move of chooks from left to right now you know tomlin acknowledged that this move happened but he also you know kind of downplayed it like he does with all moves um it’s you know the situation just keeps getting less and less certain here’s my question to you because you you’ve been around this team for however long you’ve been around this team now not going to date you but how when you look at what zac banner’s ceiling is and then look at what dan moore can provide as a as a rookie is there that much of a gap um it’s a difficult conversation to have for a bunch of reasons one because we don’t know about you can’t just say what if zach was healthy we just because he hasn’t he was healthy for one game in one town he isn’t uh he’s taken 12 total pre-season snaps all of them in the detroit game and even then he was alternating with dan moore uh the other part of this equation though is that chooks hasn’t been great no at left he hasn’t and this is his show me year really this is it again whether it’s his year or whatever you have to keep the quarterback vertical on the ground or off the ground off the ground and chooks has had his moments because he has that i mean that ridiculous frame yeah um but he’s also had lapses and lapses at left tackle end your season yes okay yes that is that’s a it’s a dire thing and i i at least like the idea of having chooks at right tackle where he has experience where he has lots of nfl games at work on that side but then again we’re talking about dan moore and then let’s also not forget that tomorrow’s cut down day across the nfl 4 p.m is the deadline there’s a really good chance they’ll they’re going to get some people there’s going to be one or two yeah and and for me you know everybody came in the preseason talking about ben roethlisberger’s arm that was the talk of preseason and and he said this himself at the beginning of training camp and and we’ve made this point you dale myself he’s had an entire offseason to rest that arm he hasn’t been rehabbing it this year and he’s he’s coming in with with a rested arm the arm is not the issue to me i’ve watched him in training camp chuckleball 45 yards upper body only no he’s let go he’s letting it go my concern is when we watch him move and as cool as it looked to see that flash of old bend on that uh eric ebron drop the knees are 39 year old knees and they’re they’re 18-year nfl knees and i don’t want to see him having to move a lot unless it’s unless it’s shuffling in the pocket and this is what it all comes down to for this football team if the tackle situation is good this is going to be a force to be reckoned with as an offense i think i think you’re going to see the steelers add at the position i don’t know whether it’s tuesday evening or wednesday it’s going to be really soon i mean you know colbert has cap space to use and there’s like you said there’s going to be a bunch of guys on the market after tuesday go get them got to get somebody yep download the bet ql app and use the discount code this is important dkps at
