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.
I'm joined by fellow columnist Kevin Gorman and Steelers beat writer Joe Rutter. We talk about the Steelers quest to finally get a divisional win in their third try of 2018. This time it'll be in Cincinnati. We discuss the ILB position, young Bengals the Steelers wanted, and Joe Haden. Plus, how real is Cincy's 4-1 start?
The Robert Morris Hockey team begins its 2018-'19 schedule Friday against the nationally ranked Bowling Green Falcons. I talked to head coach Derek Schooley about some of his returning skill, a heavy influence of freshmen, and the history of his program.
