Ireland Contracting Sports Call: Dec. 6, 2018 (Pt. 2)

WELCOME BACK TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL MAKE SURE YOU CALL IRELAND CONTRACTING IF YOU NEED A ROOF

THEY ARE NUMBER ONE IN PITTSBURGH, 1-800 NEW ROOF IS A NUMBER THEY DO SIDING AND GUTTERS AND WINDOWS, ANYTHING YOU NEED I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GIVE THEM A CALL, 1-800 NEW ROOF GIVE US A CALL RIGHT NOW, 412- 575-2600 BEFORE WE GET TO THE PHONE CALLS, I WANT TO TALK TO PAUL ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE IN CHARLOTTE

OBVIOUSLY, YOU ARE SOME PLAYED IN THE ACC CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM IT WASN'T WHAT WE ALL HAD HOPED OR LIKED TO SEE I DID THINK THAT THE PAIN — PANTHERS WERE GOING TO COVER THAT 27 POINTS I THINK THE TURNING POINT FOR THAT CAME FOR ME THAT'S MY WAS IN CHARLOTTE FOR THE GAME BUT IT WAS OBVIOUSLY THAT TURNOVER THERE AT THE END OF THE FIRST HALF THAT JUST CHANGE THE MOMENTUM

I THOUGHT THERE DEFENSE PLAYED WELL ENOUGH TO KEEP THEM IN THIS GAME AGAIN, I THOUGHT THERE WAS A COUPLE OF BAD DECISIONS THAT WERE MADE DOWN DISTANCE WISE ON OFFENSE THAT LED TO POINTS YOU GO DOWN 7-0 THE FIRST PLAY OF THE GAME, THE GUY RUNS, OKAY FINE I JUST THINK THEY WERE NERVOUS AT THAT POINT

WHATEVER HAPPENS, A COUPLE OF SERIES LATER, YOU HAVE A THIRD AND 29 WHAT PLAY DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR PLAYBOOK? YOU HAVE A PASSING GAME THAT CANNOT GO 10 YARDS IT SEEMS LIKE MOST OF THE TIME AND YOU ARE GOING TO CALL A PASS PLAY BACKED UP AGAINST YOUR OWN AND HIS OWN? THERE WAS A STRIP SACK AND THE GUIDE GOT THE BALL TO THE TWO YARD LINE AND NEXT THING YOU KNOW IT IS 14-0 AND THEN YOU GET THE BALL BACK WITH ABOUT ONE MINUTE LEFT AGAIN, YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS HIGH-POWERED STRIKE OFFENSE DESPITE EVERYTHING BAD THAT HAPPENED YOU ARE DOWN 21-10 AND YOU ARE GETTING THE BALL COMING OUT OF HALFTIME, I JUST THOUGHT JUST RUN THE BALL A COUPLE OF TIMES AND GO INTO THE LOCKER ROOM

OF COURSE, YOU TURN IT OVER AND THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH THE GAME IN ORDER TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP NEXT YEAR AS A TEAM OR PROGRAM, THEY REALLY HAVE TO DEVELOP THEIR PASSING GAME IT IS TOO HARD TO WIN TODAY IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL BY EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO RUN THE BALL 300 YARDS EVERY SINGLE NIGHTS SOME NIGHTS WILL PLAY A DEFENSIVE FRIENDS LIKE MIAMI, LIKE CLEMSON THAT IS REALLY STRONG NOW YOU BETTER HAVE PLAN B

THEY REALLY DID NOT HAVE A PLAN B WHEN THEIR RUNNING GAME WAS STOPPED IF YOU LOOK AT ALL THE GOOD TEAMS THEY PLAYED, PENN STATE, ONCE THEY COULDN'T RUN THE BALL, IT JUST WAS A LONG NIGHT AFTER THAT MIAMI NEVER LET THEM REALLY WHEN THE BALL CLEMSON NEVER REALLY LET THEM RUN THE BALL YOU NEED A PASSING GAME

THAT WILL BE THE NEXT STEP FOR THIS PROGRAM YOU NEED A PASSING GAME FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL PERIOD THOSE TWO TEAMS, THERE IS A LIMIT TO WHAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISH IT IS GIMMICKY IT IS HARD TO WIN THAT WAY

PEOPLE SAY GEORGIA TECH WAS IN THE ACC TITLE GAME A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO BUT IF YOU LOOK, THEY ACTUALLY IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME THROUGH FOR 190 YARDS THAT KID WAS A PRETTY GOOD PASSER HE STILL DID THEIR TRIPLE OPTIONS STUFF BUT YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO PASS THE BALL OKAY BEFORE WE GET ONTO THE PHONE CALLS ABOUT THE STEELERS, EIGHT YARDS PASSING FOR KENNY PICKETT

NARD DOOZY WAS EMPHATIC IN SAYING THIS IS MY GUY HE IS A COMPETITOR, HE WILL BE THE QUARTERBACK ON THIS TEAM YOU THINK HE IS THE RIGHT FIT FOR PIT? I THINK THE BIGGEST THING IS IT IS EASY TO POINT TO HIM WHEN YOU ARE FOR AND 16 FOR 18 YARDS — THEY DIDN'T REALLY PROTECT HIM WHILE THEY DIDN'T

I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY HELPED HIM VERY WELL IN TERMS OF THE PLAYCALLING IN THIS GAME AND ALL THE THINGS THAT THEY DID IN THE GAME PLAN LEADING UP TO THE GAME KNOWING FULL WELL YOU ARE FACING THAT FRONT AND SEVEN I THOUGHT THERE WERE SOME OTHER THINGS THEY COULD HAVE DONE, MAYBE ADD SOME SCREEN PASSES OR SOME THINGS THAT YOU DID NOT REALLY HAVE TO DROPBACK FOR THAT YOU COULD GET THE BALL OUT OF HIS HANDS QUICKLY AND JUST GET HIM IN A LITTLE BIT OF A RHYTHM AND KEEP THEIR GOOD DEFENSIVE FRIENDS OFF-BALANCE I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY DID THAT THE THING ABOUT THEIR PASSING GAME RIGHT NOW IS A LOT OF THEIR STUFF IS PLAY ACTION REAL LONG DRAWBACKS, TRY TO ROLLOUT WHERE HE IS HOLDING THE BALL REALLY TOO LONG SO BETWEEN THE PROTECTION, THERE IS OBVIOUSLY HIM, THE RECEIVERS, THERE IS A LOT OF THINGS THAT GO INTO ONLY HAVING EIGHT YARDS PASSING

I DON'T BLAME THE QUARTERBACK COMPLETELY OBVIOUSLY, HE HAS HIS SHARE OF THE BLAME THERE IS A LOT OF LEVELS TO WHAT THEY NEED TO GET BETTER AT FROM NOW UNTIL NEXT YEAR OR ELSE NEXT YEAR, THEY WILL LOSE SOME GAMES THAT THEY PROBABLY SHOULDN'T LOSE JUST BECAUSE TEAMS WILL LOAD UP TO STOP THE RUN I KNOW HE WILL DEVELOP IT I'M STILL WORRIED ABOUT HIS ACCURACY LET'S GO OUT TO MIKE

HEY WHAT IS UP GUYS? I WANT TO SWITCH WHAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT I REALLY LOVE LISTENING TO WHAT PAUL HAD TO SAY AND WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY, RICH HERE IS MY OPINION I AM TRYING NOT TO BE A DEBBIE DOWNER WITH THAT PROGRAM BUT I ME NUMBER ONE, THE NEED TO RECRUIT BETTER I'M SORRY

THE RECRUITS, ONCE IN A WHILE YOU WILL SEE A PLAYER THAT IS COMING HERE THAT MAYBE HAD SOME NICE OFFERS CHOOSING US BETWEEN PENN STATE OR MAYBE EVEN LIKE AN OHIO STATE BUT THAT IS RARE USUALLY THEY ARE CHOOSING BETWEEN US, BOWLING GREEN, AKERS, ROCKERS THAT ISN'T GOING TO CUT IT WE NEED BETTER PLAYERS THE OFFENSE OF LINE IN PASS PROTECTION THE WHOLE YEAR WAS AWFUL

I PLAYED PICKETT A LOT — HE PLAYED PICKETT A LOT BUT HE ALSO HAD ZERO TIME TO THROW THIS IS NOT 1975 WE ARE IN AN ERA WHERE EVERY COLLEGE TEAM IS PASSING, SPREADING THE FIELD AND PIT IS JUST BEHIND THE TIMES THANK YOU, MIKE YOU BROUGHT UP SEAN WATSON

YOU THINK THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH THE OFFENSE OF COORDINATOR? NARD DOOZY IS A LOYAL GUY AGAIN, THERE ARE SO MANY LAYERS TO WHAT GOES ON YOU CAN ONLY CALL PLAYS THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY EXECUTE YOU CAN ONLY EXECUTE PLAYS THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY BLOCK FOR YOU KNOW MAYBE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THROWS THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE KENNY PICKETT MAKE

RIGHT NOW IN HIS DEVELOPMENT, HE CANNOT MAKE THEM THERE ARE LIMITATIONS IN SOME WAYS TO WHAT YOU CAN DO IS AN OFFENSE OF COORDINATOR THAT BEING SAID, I THINK THE OFFENSE NEEDS TO BECOME A LITTLE BIT MORE DYNAMIC AND CREATIVE THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT BUT AS THE COLLEGES TO SET AND AS HE WATCHED, A PASS PROTECTION ALL YEAR WAS NOT VERY GOOD IF YOUR QUARTERBACK IS DROPPING BACK AND AGAIN, THAT IS WHERE IT COMES TO WHAT WE JUST TALKED ABOUT BEFORE WHERE I SAID YOU HAVE TO ADD SOME QUICK HITTERS, QUICK PASSING, SOME SCREENS, THINGS THAT WHEN YOU GET THE BALL OUT OF HIS HAND QUICKLY AND HE IS NOT STANDING BACK THERE RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE EVERY TIME HE DROPS BACK AS THEY TAKE THOSE LONG DROPS, THE PLAY ACTION STUFF, THE ROLLOUT STUFF, THERE WERE TIMES WHEN THERE WERE THREE GUYS THERE WAITING FOR HIM

WHEN YOU RUN THE BALL AS WELL AS THEY DO, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE SOME DECEPTION WITH WHAT YOU DO BUT THE PROBLEM IS LIKE I SAID, THEY HAD A HARD TIME PROTECTING HIM SO THERE IS A LOT OF LEVELS TO WHAT WENT ON TO THE PIT PASSING GAME THIS YEAR IT HAS GOT TO GET BETTER WHATEVER THERE IS, IT HAS GOT TO GET BETTER FOR NEXT YEAR OR WILL BE TALKING ABOUT A TEAM THAT AGAIN LOSES THREE OR FOUR GAMES IT HURTS THE RECRUITING ALSO WHEN YOU ARE ONE DIMENSIONAL AND YOU DO NOT HAVE A PASSING GAME

THOSE ATHLETIC GUYS DO NOT WANT TO COME PLAY FOR PIT WE ARE GOING TO GO OUT TO DAVID NOW HEY HOW ARE YOU DOING? GOOD I JUST WANT TO SAY I THINK THE STEELERS ARE GOING TO LOSE SUNDAY BECAUSE I THINK THE PLAYOFFS ARE GOING TO GO DOWN THE TUBES BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE TO OAKLAND AND THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE NEW ENGLAND AND BALTIMORE WILL BEAT KANSAS CITY

I DISAGREE WITH YOU ON ALL FRONTS I DON'T DISAGREE I THINK BALTIMORE CAN BEAT KANSAS CITY I WILL TELL YOU WHY NUMBER ONE, IF YOU WATCH KANSAS CITY THE NEXT — THE LAST FEW WEEKS, TEAMS HAVE STARTED TO FIGURE OUT YOU CAN GET PATRICK TO MAKE MISTAKES

THE BALTIMORE DEFENSE, THAT FRONT SEVEN THEY HAVE GOT, THEY HAVE BETTER CORNERS THAN I CAN REMEMBER THEM HAVING I BET YOU THEY WILL FORCE SOME MISTAKES, THEY WILL FORCE SOME MISTAKES OF HIM AND KANSAS CITY'S DEFENSE STINKS TO ME, I THINK LAMAR JACKSON AND COMPANY WILL SCORE A BUNCH OF POINTS IT WILL NOT SHOT ME IF THEY BEAT KANSAS CITY I'M NOT SAYING THEY WILL BUT IT WILL NOT SHOCK ME

THREE WEEKS AGO, I WOULD'VE SAID NO WAY BUT I AM TELLING YOU, I THINK THE TEAM — THE TWO TEAMS THAT THE STEELERS SHOULD BE A LITTLE BIT NERVOUS — ACTUALLY THREE TEAMS IN THE PLAYOFFS AND THE STEELERS SHOULD BE NERVOUS ABOUT, THE PATRIOTS, THE CHARGERS ARE GOOD ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL, AND THE RAVENS THE REST OF THESE TEAMS, MAYBE THE TEXANS TO ME, WATSON IS REALLY GOOD BUT I STILL THINK THAT TEAM IS REALLY JUST LACKING SOMETHING I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS BUT TO ME, I THINK IT THE STEELERS PLAY THE CHIEFS IN THE PLAYOFFS, THEY WILL BE OKAY AT THE STEELERS DO NOT MATCH THE RAVENS RECORD IN THESE LAST FOUR GAMES, THE STEELERS ARE NOT GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS

I DON'T THINK THEY WILL GET IN AS A WILDCARD IF YOU LOOK AT EVERY OTHER TEAM BESIDES THE CHARGES, THEY ALL HAVE SIX LOSSES ALREADY BUT IF IT COMES TO A TIEBREAKER, IT WON'T BE A TIEBREAKER BUT THE STEELERS HAVE MORE LOSSES IN THE AFC THEY HAVE TO HOPE — EVEN IF THEY GO TO AND TO, THEY WOULD GO 10, NINE, SIX AND ONE ALL OF THESE TEAMS LIKE TENNESSEE, THERE ARE A BUNCH OF TEAMS WITH SIX LOSSES

ONE OF THOSE TEAMS WOULD HAVE TO GO 4-0 I DO THINK IF THE STEELERS WIN TWO GAMES, THEY PROBABLY WILL BE IN THE PLAYOFFS BUT IF THEY LOSE THIS ONE, FORGET ABOUT IT THEY DON'T EVEN DESERVE TO GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS IF THE —
