Ebs’ Hot Takes: Pittsburgh Steelers, Carmelo Anthony, Tiger Woods

FROM THE PRESS BOX – Baseball’s finally back, ya’ll.

With pitchers and catchers finally reporting this week, we’re inching closer and closer to Opening Day. One of my favorite sports days of the year.aaron-judge-yankees-wrist, Meet_The_Matts

If the offseason is any indication, with Manny Machado, Bryce Harper, Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel all remaining unsigned, we should be in for an interesting 2019 campaign.

Time for some fresh hot takes. Enjoy.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will miss the playoffs. Again. Who would have thought that the last one out of the Killer B’s standing would be Ben Roethlisberger. Not me.

But it looks like both Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are on their way out and with a underwhelming defense already intact, it’s tough to imagine the Steelers being able to compete in the AFC North. Not to mention, the Cleveland Browns continue to get better and the Baltimore Ravens’ defense will keep them in just about every game this season.

There just aren’t enough playmakers on the Steelers anymore. They’ll hover around .500 an ultimately miss out on the playoffs. Again.

Carmelo Anthony is going to save the Los Angeles Lakers’ season. Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka messed up. And I think they realize that now.

Before it’s too late, the Los Angeles Lakers need to make a move to save their season. And at this point, all that’s left is the buyout market.

There have been reports linking Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers for what seems like months now. With everything quiet on the Anthony front, I imagine he hasn’t gotten many phone calls.

It’s time for the Lakers to pounce. They need the offense and their defense can’t get much worse.

Adding Anthony puts the Lakers into the playoffs.

Tiger Woods is going to win a major this year. Something in my gut tells me that Tiger Woods is back.

Maybe it was his win at the Tour Championship last year or the fact that Woods finished his 2018 campaign ranked seventh in the world.

It’ll be interesting to see how Woods plays at the Genesis Open this weekend. Because maybe, just maybe, it could hint about what’s in store in 2019.
