Fulfill your Fantasy At Blush! It's our weekly fantasy sports podcast with Jeff Erickson. Bye week patch-overs. Larry Fitzgerald struggles. Questions about San Francisco's offensive burst. Devonta Freeman and Cooper Kupp replacements.
I speak with Steelers cornerback Joe Haden about why the defense has gotten better of late. We also preview the Browns with Baker Mayfield. Plus, we dive into how the linebackers reacted to the return of Vince Williams. And we get into what's gone wrong with Artie Burns and how he can help.
I'm joined by Mark Madden from 105.9 the X and TribLive. It's another edition of Madden Monday. We talk about how the Steelers rallied to win their latest game in Cincinnati. Or, maybe better said, how the Bengals lost their latest game against Pittsburgh. Also, we discuss the Steelers' star players on offense and their improvements on defense, Vontaze Burfict's latest cheap shot, and all those officiating quandaries. Plus we mix in Penguins talk, and the woes of the three local college football teams.
I'm joined by long time Cincinnati Bengals play-by-play voice Dan Hoard. We preview the Steelers trip to Cincy on Sunday. Among the topics: Vontaze Burfict's return. Are the Bengals really more mentally mature in 2018? Will Marvin Lewis try to keep A.J. Green away from Joe Haden? Tyler Boyd's emergence. How have the Bengals gotten to 4-1 despite some pedestrian team statistics.
Jesse Granger of the Athletic joins me to talk about the Vegas Golden Knights' visit to Pittsburgh. They skate at PPG Paints Arena tonight at 7:00 pm. We talk about the Knights' struggles in their own end, Marc-Andre Fleury being hung out to dry, and the absences of James Neal and David Perron.
