You get $10 for free, $10 to the S P C A. Today is Wednesday, December 23rd, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are. Yeah, the worst 11 and no team of all time. Dead dish reddish Ben Roethlisberger is not health good anymore. This is tricky because now we're biased. We do like, you know, the Steelers and in Pittsburgh, the city of Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger. So it's It's hard, but in fair, in fairness to every other team that we bash the Pittsburgh Steelers. Air frauds straight up frauds. 11, 02 11 and three. Losing is 14 point favorites to the Bengals. They're broken, They are hurt, They are damaged. And I don't know, like has there ever been a team that's gone 11? Oh, and finish 11 and five and still going to the playoffs? It would be very funny if they ended up with five straight losses and then limped into the They're in the playoffs. Yes, that's the crazy. So they're going to get into playoffs. There's a chance. And, like we talked about the Browns chances, even though listen, it's still extremely likely that the Browns get in. But if the dominoes fall the wrong way. They might not. But there's still a very good chance that, depending on how that Week six or week 17 game goes the Browns and Steelers, they could play each other back to back weeks. Not only that pft, but the Browns, and I think that there's a I think most Browns fans know this, but there are still a certain amount of Browns fans out there that haven't fully realized it because they think and understandably so, they think. Well, we beat the Titans and we beat the Colts, so we have the tiebreaker. If there's a four or five way, tie it 11 and five, the head to heads don't matter. That's the problem. And the Browns get basically booted from the playoffs, so weak. 17 There could be. There's a potential for weeks 17, and this would be like hell. Freezing over. The Cleveland Browns could be playing for the A F C North title, and if they lose, they could potentially be kicked out of the playoffs. Yeah, crazy is that there's a lot of weird stuff that it could work out where if they lose that game, then that means that they have to go to Pittsburgh the next week. It could work out that if they win the game, Pittsburgh has to go to Cleveland the next week. It's gonna be weird. It's gonna be very strange ending of the season, for sure. Either way, I think the big take away from Monday Night Football was I I don't remember Big Man, never playing that bad and like it's bad. It is very, very bad. So the first thing I noticed besides him, just like doing a two year old protest and saying I never wanna play under center, So I'm gonna fumble. The first snap that I get there was when he was when they were setting up for handoffs, he they were calling Handoff Place, where he would not have to take more than one step. In fact, like most of the handoffs Big Ben was doing was just like turning his fat belly to the side and putting the ball out. Just rotate. There was one in the first half in particular where he had to take like maybe maybe a step in half to his right, and he took like half to step in and stretched his arm way out and I, we joke about like is Big Ben hurt? Because Big Ben's always hurt and someone actually know this week he wasn't hurt. He was coming back from the world's shortest retirement of all time because he made Adam Schefter announced on Like, Saturday or Sunday. The Big Ben will return for next year. Thanks, Adam. Yeah, no one was okay. Thank you, Ben, for letting us know. But I don't know if he's actually like injured or hurt or if he's just lazy. He's just told he just might be old. I think we're seeing this and it's and it's happening like this is the end of tight. Of all the things that have happened in the last couple of years, you know who actually coming out. The biggest winner. Philip Rivers, Eli Manning Z, Eli Manning retired first. He was the first to leave the party. Now he was obviously when he got bad at the end, it was bad, but our lasting memories we're now going to be bad, Bad, Big Ben, Bad Phil Rivers. If he plays for the year or two, Tom Brady's gonna play for 10 more years, so he'll be bad at the end. Drew Brees, like all these guys getting old and trying to hold on as long as they can. Eli Just sitting, eating whatever, like sloppy Joes that aren't sloppy Joes, that I guess New Jersey has its own sloppy Joes, even though everyone else it's a different kind of sloppy Joes and loving life. And he's gonna end up being like, Remember Eli? He was awesome. He never got bad. He's like it is a great lesson. Like leave the party be the first to leave instead of the last right. He's like if when Tiger Woods retires from golf, he's not gonna go play on the seniors tour, right? Right. But there should be a senior's tour for quarterbacks. Yes, it's winter. How awesome would that be? So we could still have these guys. These guys like swinging around until they die it So it's It's so I don't know where Steelers fans. I think most Steeler fans and I'm gonna give them credit cause I think they are some of the best fans in football. I think most of them realize it like from judging from social media, they all know what's going on here. No one is making three illusions that the steel and a lot of it is because of injuries. They've they've really, like, been ravaged by injury on the defensive side of the ball. And a lot of it is because they cannot run the ball whatsoever and their offenses. Essentially, Big Ben, trying to throw short passes and sailing all of them over everyone's heads and throwing bad picks. And Ben, he even the like the pics. Or one thing he was getting. Guys killed. They were hospital passes last night, left and right, like Ebron got killed. Like the juju Smith Schuster, who was doing a tick tock before the game. He got killed, like So I don't know the Steelers team. It feels like they're gonna limp in and probably sputter out in, you know, the first or second round. Yeah, I don't see them unless I mean, obviously, like Mike Tomlin's never out of it because he's, you know, he's been there a few times, and he knows exactly which buttons to press on. Big Ben, who, by the way, speaking of buttons to press Big Ben has sucked at quarterback since he unblocked everybody on Twitter. I think maybe he's reading like all the negative stuff might be. The toxicity of the Internet might be affecting Ben, who, as we know, is dealing with porn recovery. So maybe he should go back to blocking most of the Internet. What, my Tom and say we gotta run into the kitchen or something. You got it? Yeah. We gotta start running into the kitchen. Said of running out of it s So your guess is good. That's where the heat is. That's where the flames are. Yeah, I don't know. That's where you eat big. Their fire in the kitchen. Big Ben's just gonna interpret. That is like I need to eat more more pf e need to be heavier. Also credit to the Bengals. That was a nice win. They played like there is something about playing your rival at the end of the season in a lost season and winning a game like that. Like if you're a Bengals fan, you could kind of put your hat on it like, yeah, we fucking way fucked up there. There may be the A f. C north for them. It is something to build on because you do have, like a franchise that you're trying to build. You're no longer in tank mode. You've got, like, the initial pieces. So yeah, winning a game like this is pretty important. We did get an overload of throughout the record books. The record books were thrown out by Louis totally thrown out within 30 seconds of Kermit the Frog. Dropping the mic like this was I thought it was so high when I was like, Wait, did I smoke today? Because what is going on? I was not ready for that. I didn't know that that was happening. I was just fucking talking. I tuned in early. It worked on me because I tuned in, like, 10 minutes early to see the Muppets O. C. I just had the game. I like to my Monday nights. I like to sit down on the couch like around 7 45 and have the pregame on because I don't really watch pre games otherwise and really kind of feel in the moment. And then
