Harsh words for Steelers, praise for Pitt on the podcast

City of Champions co-editors Matt Shetler and Matt Gajtka sink their teeth into another week’s worth of Pittsburgh sports news on the latest episode of Three Rivers, One Show.

The Steelers offense underperformed even modest expectations in Sunday’s desultory loss to the Cleveland Browns. Matt and Matt discuss how things went wrong, from coach Mike Tomlin’s benching of his entire running back corps to Charlie Batch’s incompetence at the most important position on the field. Can the Steelers salvage a season that is in danger of disintegrating?

On a positive note, Shetler and Gajtka appreciate Pitt football’s impressive home victory over nationally-ranked Rutgers. How important is making a bowl to this program, in its first year under head man Paul Chryst? Has the up-and-down season provided any hope for the future?

Matt and Matt close the show with Pitt basketball talk, an NHL lockout update and a commentary on the NFL’s heavyhandedness in acknowledging gambling. City of Champions reporter Zac Weiss also chimes in with his opinions on the Pittsburgh sports universe.
