RIGHT NOW 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

POWERED BY FANDUEL SPORTS BOOK WE ARE HERE WITH ANDREW FILIPPONE WE REALLY LIKE PONY ON TV WELL PREPARED GUY GOING INTO THE BUSINESS WE ALSO HAVE THIS TWEET FROM AND YOU CAN HIT US UP OF THE PONY SHOW

THE PENGUINS KEEP GOING ON THIS IF THERE'S A PART OF ME THAT AGREES WITH THAT THERE IS A PART OF ME THAT DOES NOT WE WILL UNDERSTAND HE WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED HE'S A GUY THAT LIKES TO REWARD A TEAM THAT GOES ALL IN IF MAKING TRADES BETTER HE WILL DO THAT

ANOTHER INJURY AT THE WING POSITION WE SEE THE WAY FALCON HIS RISEN TO THE OCCASION ALL YEAR IF NOT FOR AN INJURY HE WOULD BE IN A HEART TROPHY I THINK YOU WANT ONE MORE GUY EITHER A SECONDARY SCORING ROLE OR TRYING TO HIT A HOME RUN TO GET A REPLACEMENT ONE MORE GUY

MALKIN OR CROSBY CAN GET THE PUNT TO THEY CAN BE US GORING THREAT ON THE ICE I DON'T THINK HE CAN BE THAT KIND OF PLAYER THEY ARE DEEP AT EVERY POSITION IT'S HARD TO SEE THE WEAKNESS ON THE TEAM

WHAT WOULD BE THERE WEAKNESS? THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION I TALKED ABOUT THIS TODAY THE ONLY THING HE FEELS THAT TEAM IS LACKING IS A LITTLE BIT OF MUSCLE HE WONDERS IF YOU GET INTO A SERIES WITH MORE PHYSICAL TEAM WE SAW BATTLES WITH COLUMBUS AND WASHINGTON IN YEARS PRIOR

WILL THE TEAM PUSH THEM AROUND A LITTLE BIT IN A WAR OF IT ATTRITION BOB LOOKED GREAT AS MR ROGERS COULD YOU PULL OFF A CARDIGAN? DISAGREE IT'S A GREAT CLASSY LOOK I THINK I'M GROWING INTO IT

I CAN SEE MYSELF IS A CARDIGAN GUY IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS ALL YOU NEED IS A CIGAR ON YOU YOU WILL BE GOOD LET'S GO TO GREG WELCOME TO SPORTS CALL HOW ARE YOU GUYS

MY QUESTION TO YOU THE STEELERS WILL HAVE TO SIDE BOB DUPREE MOVING FORWARD WOULD THEY BE ABLE TO SIGN HARGRAVE OR WOULD THEY FEEL POWERS IS SOLID ENOUGH McAULIFFE IS A LIFE TIME JOB SEEMS LIKE

GIVE THE MONEY TO BOB DEPREE IT SEEMS UNLIKELY TO GET TO HARGRAVE THEY LIKE HIM BUT HE'S GONNA TRY AND CASH IN AS WELL HE SHOULD I LIKE HARGRAVE ENOUGH THIS IS A VERY CONTROVERSIAL STATEMENT

PEOPLE OF GOD UPSET I WOULD KEEP HARGRAVE IN COTUIT BECAUSE OF THE INJURY IF I HAD TO PICK ONE IN THE DEFENSIVE LINE UP IT WOULD BE HARGRAVE I DON'T THINK THE STEELERS WILL TAKE THE GAMBLE

I DON'T FEEL LONG TERM CONTRACT IN THE FUTURE I THINK HE'S JUST ABOUT GUARANTEED TO BE BACK ON THE FRANCHISE TAG I DON'T SEE THEM FINDING A MIDDLE GROUND WHERE HE WILL ACCEPT A LONG-TERM DEAL I THINK IT'S CAN BE FRANCHISOR NOTHING OR LET HIM GO HE EITHER GETS IT ORC SUBSTANCE AND GETS IT OUT

HE'S NOT GONNA DO THAT I LIKE TO A I THINK HE'S ONE OF THE GUYS THAT WHEN HEALTHY CAN BE A BIG DISTURBER ON THE DEFENSIVE LINE I LIKE HARGRAVE A LOT HE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE OUT OF SOUTH CAROLINA

YOU CAN'T HAVE ALL THREE NO YOU CAN'T SO IS THE GUY THAT WILL LEAD STEVE MacLENNAN IS A GUY THAT GOT PAID BY THE JETS WHEN AM I GONNA GET PAID? YOU ARE GUYS IN RADIO FOR AS FAR AS I UNDERSTAND JOE WELCOME TO SPORTS CALL

THANKS FOR HAVING MY CALL DO YOU THINK PITTSBURGH IS TOO INSULAR WITH THE HIRES THE QUARTERBACK COACH WHO IS ALL OF A SUDDEN IN THE SAME BUILDING CAMP THEY INTERVIEW AT LEAST TWO OR THREE PEOPLE? THEY INTERVIEWED THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE FROM WHAT ART TOLD ME TODAY THEY WERE LOOKING CANADA HAS A RELATIONSHIP THERE IT WOULD BE INTERESTING BECAUSE HE DID NOT LEAVE IT IN THE BEST OF TERMS

HIM AND ARE DOOZY WILL HAVE AWKWARD PARKING LOT MOMENTS THAT'S TRUE COULD VERY WELL BE BECAUSE HE TOOK THE NICE MONEY OF LSU BUT THEY GOT RID OF HIM PRETTY QUICKLY NOW JOE BRADY IS ON THE DAVID TEPPER MONEY GAME DOWN IN NORTH CAROLINA

HE HELPED TO RECRUIT HE WAS INVOLVED IN MARYLAND I LOVED HIS OFFENSE SO MUCH IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST FUN, DYNAMIC OFFENSES I'VE SEEN FROM A LOCAL TEAM I RESPECT MATT CAN AS A MATHEMATICIAN

A QUARTERBACK IS DIFFERENT THAT OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR I LIKE THE HIGHER THEY HAD TO GET SOMEBODY SPEAKING OF CAROLINA THEY BROUGHT HIM UP

WE SAW MONK HOW SKI AT THE AGE OF 30 HERE'S ANOTHER GUY CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BIGGER NAMES IN THE GAME YOU CAN PUT HIM IN THE HALL OF FAME RIGHT NOW AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED RIGHT NOW THEY WILL HAVE THAT DEBATE THE GUY WAS ELITES I THINK HE'S A MODERN-DAY JACK HAM

IS A LITTLE BEFORE MY TIME BUT AS THEY DESCRIBED HIM AS DETAILED ORDER AND THAT WILL KEEP HIM IN A NUTSHELL TO ME GUYS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN SO MANY PLAYS AFTER TAKE ON CONTACT EVERY TIME IT'S AMAZING GUYS HE'S HAVE A LOT OF CONCUSSIONSGUYS LIKE RAY LEWIS DID THAT
