Tim Benz, Mark Madden discuss Steelers drama, Josh Bell’s power explosion

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown greets quarterback Ben Roethlisberger before a game against the Denver Broncos, Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018, in Denver.

This week’s “Madden Monday,” comes a day late after my trip to the Sonic Temple Festival in Columbus. So, obviously, music comes up at some point. Like Joan Jett still performing … at 60!

Mainly, though, we focus on the continuation of Steelers drama even as Ben Roethlisberger tries to erase it. Madden gives his reaction to Antonio Brown’s “two face” tweet (likely) in response to Ben Roethlisberger’s apology on KDKA.

Terrell Edmunds then liked Brown’s tweet. That doesn’t seem to help the team’s hope of having a quieter 2019 off the field.

We also talk about Josh Bell’s offensive explosion and how long he can sustain it. Perhaps he will become enough of a draw — individually — for Pirates fans to show up during this homestand.

Madden and I dive into the instant replay debate as it pertains to the troubles the NHL has had this postseason and how the NFL is correcting an error it made trying to expand it.

We also have an update on Ric Flair’s health, look at the “Deadwood” movie and bemoan the “Better Call Saul” lag before the next season.
