Would he say that again? Hey picked who where it's just like when they Oh my gosh. I'm drawing a blank on the bears quarterback from North Carolina. Bisky bears traded up for trubisky. I'm like holy crap did they. They just sold the farm to get this guy who's not even that good in homes went after him. Yes like fifteen you know. Obviously if you're a bears fan yes you'd be pretty upset. You know what it would be interesting if the steelers gave up the second in traded back for like multiple thirty Hertz stickler nation Explo- Yes steeler nation would explode. Gardai Garza Bridges. Oh my goodness that would be drama. That would be absolute drama. But you said something interesting. Jeff in terms of them moving to the first round in dipping into future cap years nightcap year's draft years for draft assets to move up normally. I would say no Burrito need this Jeff. We'll get your take on it. I wouldn't mind if they did it because inter in a win now node. Yes because if bionic Big Ben is back here all those bees I onic then is back if the biotic one is back. You've got to go all in because the one thing. That's the hardest thing I think in sports to find is a franchise quarterback franchise changing quarterback like Patrick Mahomes now. The Kansas City's identified and like the steelers did sixteen years ago. Seventeen years ago with biannic. Big Be if you can if you got a sell out to continue to win if you think. That guy is healthy and I wouldn't mind if they dipped into future years to get him whatever he needs the try to get that seven Lombardi. The funny thing is is different. It's different sport in. It's a different Philip I guess you would say philosophy in terms of moving your roster around but in the Nhl you can see the penguins. The Pittsburgh Penguins who I follow are certainly doing this Sidney crosby of Guinea Malkin. They realized that they are on the back. Half of their of their contracts there on the back half of their careers and they will sell future to win. Now they realized that you have a general to generational talent on the same hockey team and they'll trade. Hey next year I you can have it take it. I don't care we want this player. That's going to help us win right now this year because we think we can win a cup and there's something to be said about that and I wonder if if Ben Rothlisberger can come back and he can come back healthy enough that they feel that he is capable of keeping this team afloat and winning a championship. I would say they should go all in. Just do it in the middle because hey listen to this though. If you if you don't let you win one attitudes. He plays two more years. And you win one okay. You he goes off into the sunset and all of a sudden you suck. Guess what you're going to get you're going to get some high draft picks your traffic. Yes you might suck and then the able to get Trevor Lawrence would network out of network out. Yeah we're going to work. But let me let me ask Jeff just to stay on that line for another question. Are they in that mode now? The Dominica Fitzpatrick trade indicate that they're in that mode now that they're willing to sacrifice in future assets to get really good to be able to go after this championship with biotic big on the roster Up to tie yeah. It's it's tough because when that trade happened the same week that Ben Rothlisberger was deemed to be ruled out for the year. I can't for the life of me. Kevin Colbert said. We need to make this trade. Because ben only as years left I think the steelers organizations like look our defense needs to get better in it then can't come back. We need to have a defense. It's going to be to keep as relevant incubus competitive. I think that was the underlying theme there in. They said if Ben Ken Comeback in if he can be the R- The quarterback that we're used to seeing the defense will be in place so they traded to get Devon Bush in the draft. They TRADE FOR MAKEUP. Fitzpatrick Dan's back throwing a football wheel. He's only thrown one. But I'm still happy about it. He's throwing a football. He's ready to go. I would not be shocked if you see them. Make more moves maybe not I think I think their best bet in my opinion is is trade. Free Agency is going to be too expensive. Try to make a trade trade. Someone that you think would have any type of you know you try to sell sell high by high gas. But that's the thing everyone's to bring up trades. I know I just did it. But you have to have a trading partner number one another franchises willing apart with a player. And you got to have some of the valuable coming back to you so I don't know just just your. This line is just opened up some questions for me. I'm just I'm just getting my mind going. I'm thinking about some questions shirt. Wha- since we're talking about the draft where where do you think they had? Minka ranked on their draft board. It had to be really really high for them. This trade in him to be available like hot like best defensive player best defensive back in the draft. I mean it had to be really high because they never do this. That trade was so uncharacteristic of so he had to have been one of the top five top ten players on their board. Maybe top defensive player. He had to be really high. I know that Tom loved him from the first time you met him. And I think he guarantees top five overall a tough defensive player on their board and probably top ten overall on their board and that includes. If you're ranking the quarterbacks that are available you're not gonNA get him He's that good and we saw how good he is. I don't think anyone in Pittsburgh is saying man. I wish that I wish they wouldn't have made that trade because you have a proven commodity in all pro player that that's what it comes down to your even all pro player so when the steelers were supposed to pick eighteenth in the first round. I'm going to publish an article. That says congratulations steeler fans. If it's badgered your first round draft pick all pro safety will throw in some highlight reels. Enjoy sit back to have your beverage of choice and enjoy the fact that none in year three which by the way still young year three. You're going to have a great great safety. You don't have to worry about Willie developed. Will he be ready? He's ready to challenge for you. In according to Brad Jewett Tomlin said MINKAH. Fitzpatrick was top. Five on their board. I don't you know I'm just GonNa take him at his word. That's the case. But I got a challenge for you in the graphics depart. Can you take his old draft photo? That big if it's Patrick did in superimpose steeler hat on how the thing that Debbie pre still whatever. The draft cap was for that year. How would you get image Debbie Graham? But you've you've got that off Dr. That'd be great to go for the article absolutely so we'll see mega fitzpatrick and I don't WanNa spend much time was like you said we're going down a rabbit hole. That can just keep going as far as your data's been good it's been good discussion But you know the underwear Olympics are going to be happening in France and that's the NFL combine in. I know you're not going to watch. I'm GonNa be doing a podcast tomorrow on the first night during it so I'm not gonna be able to watch that at all but lands. What are your thoughts on the combine in terms of? How much stock.
