PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan)- Former Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden, now a CBS Sports analyst and the host of a podcast called “All Things Covered” with his cousin, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, admits he’s biased.
He loves the Steelers. Bleeds black and gold. His rationale? He’s got two Super Bowl rings from his days as a Steeler, so he’s unashamed of the way he leans.
He is on weekly with The Fan Morning Show and Tuesday went over why he thinks the Steelers would beat the Kansas City Chiefs if they played each other this week.
“I would take the Steelers even if I was not biased because of their defense, how opportunistic their defense is. Rushing the passer? We can do that. Creating turnovers? We can do that.
If you look at the team that has had a lot of success against the Kansas City Chiefs over the last year or so, that team is the Chargers. You know why? They have two guys that can win one-on-one blocks at any time in (Melvin) Ingram and (Joey) Bosa.
Guess what? We’ve got two guys that can win their one-on-one blocks in Dupree and Watt. Don’t forget about Heyward, don’t forget Tuitt. We’ve got so many guys on our front that can create pressure on Pat Mahomes without sending an extra hat on the blitz. That’s unique. A lot of teams don’t have that.
Offensively, man we’re a balanced team. We can beat you in so many different ways. Running the football, throwing the football, quick game, splash play game. So yes, I would take the Steelers.”
