Episode 29 of Roughing The Podcast is out, and Di and Ted return after a brief hiatus so Ted could go traipsing across France. And don’t think Ted doesn’t rub that in juuuuuuuuuust a little bit to open the show. Then it was a review of cutdown day and the Alex Boone decision, since, you know, vacation and all.
They also broke down what they thought was the most impressive part of Dalvin Cook’s debut, who ran for 127 yards on 22 carries.
Finally, they recognize that none of that would have occurred had it not been for the superior play of the offensive line. Do the Vikings actually have a good line, or was Monday an anomaly?
On defense, they discuss the pressure the line put on Drew Brees, even though they only registered one sack. Then it was a discussion of who’s better: Eric Kendricks or Anthony Barr? Also, Di asks why can’t we have two shutdown corners, and Ted wonders why he can’t ride a winged unicorn to the end of the rainbow and gather all the treasure for himself.
They wrapped up the Saints game by discussing the overarching storyline leading up to the game, and that was Adrian Peterson. How did they think it would go, and how happy were they it turned out the way they did?
From there, they moved on to the Steelers preview. The Vikings offense matches up pretty well against the Steelers, but the 3-4 will be a different look that could give them problems.The key players for Pittsburgh, on offense, are Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. Can the Vikings limit both? If so, who? Or is it a pick your poison thing?
Finally, they predict the score of the game and answer listener questions.
