First call: The Dallas QB update for the Steelers game on Sunday. Antonio Brown’s legal team at full speed

about an hour ago

Tuesday’s “First Call” includes a look at the Cowboys quarterback situation this week as the Steelers prepare for a trip to Dallas.

The Ravens made history during their defeat by the Steelers on Sunday. John Harbaugh defends his team’s coronavirus practices.

And Antonio Brown’s legal team works overtime before making his Tampa Bay Buccaneers debut.


Dalton or DiNucci;

The Steelers are preparing for Sunday’s game in Dallas. And the Cowboys are not sure who the quarterback will be yet.

Former Pine-Richland quarterback Ben DiNucci was in the center when the team lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. He replaced Andy Dalton, who hosted former Steelers linebacker Jon Bostic two weeks ago in Washington.

And, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Dalton has not yet cleared the concussion protocol.

DiNucci was 21 out of 40 for 180 yards. He was fired four times, and did not throw a touchdown. The former Pete Panther did not even intervene. But he fell twice on the road with a 23-9 loss.


Defeat of history

Although the Steelers beat Baltimore Ravens 28-24 on Sunday, the Ravens made some history.

And according to CBSOn Sunday, the Ravans became the first team since at least 1950 to beat their 200-yard opponent and beat and lose.

So, perhaps, better, the Steelers made history by offsetting the Ravens story.


Stop the ball

Former Steeler Antonio Brown is trying to sue.

Why; Because, believe it or not, it’s good for his career.

As ProFootballTalk.com points out“It is clear that he wants to delay the test date. Although the request can only come from the crossroads of the pandemic and the legal system, any delay after the end of the NFL season benefits Brown.”

Currently, Brown is watching to play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. And It is said to refer to the bay of Tampa in excellent shape.

This is not surprising. Brown’s dedication to the gym is never a problem. His dedication to the team, the league and the municipal rules is usually the problem.

His Bucs may need help. They just beat the New York Giants 25-23 in “Monday Night Football”.


Harbaugh at Humphrey

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh defends corner kick by Marlon Humphrey – and the rest of his players – after being diagnosed with Humphrey’s coronavirus.

He insists his team was not lax in implementing the protocol before losing to the Steelers. And that Humphrey tested positive for covid-19 before the Steelers game simply because he’s a pandemic and positive.

Not because he broke the rules.

OKAY. I’m buying it. I accept.

What I dispute is how a man appears sick, is sent home on Wednesday. Then, probably, he tests negatively on Thursday and Friday and plays on Sunday… without a positive test until the results come back on Monday.

What I do not dispute is how Humphrey got sick. It’s how the doctors let it happen or how they didn’t catch it earlier.
