Start – We’re back with another jam-packed episode of the podcast! This time around, we get into Penguins talk first and break down Monday’s night’s 8-5 win against Ottawa. We talk about Fleury getting pulled, the Penguins’ ability to score at will, their issues on special teams, and more! We also talk about our impressions of the team now that we’re just about a third of the way through the season.
25-minute mark – Next is Pirates talk, and it’s more Andrew McCutchen madness. Clint Hurdle and Neal Huntington gave stating that the Pirates not being the aggressors in trade talks seems bogus to us. However, by the end of the episode we discover a new rumor that the Pirates are no longer looking to deal Cutch. WHAT IS HAPPENING?!?!
34:45 mark – Last, we dig into a huge AFC matchup on Sunday as the Steelers travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills. Who will win out in the battle between LeSean McCoy and the Steelers rush D? Will Tyrod Taylor’s legs be a factor? And if Ben Roethlisberger and Ladarius Green continue to develop chemistry, is there any reason to believe opposing defenses can stop the Steelers’ offense?
All that, and more (including the college coaching carousel, Malik Zaire transfer rumors, and Lamont Wade’s upcoming announcement), in Episode 196!
