tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  October 1, 2015 11:50pm-12:52am EDT

11:50 pm
jim: the ravens will return home in some 10, 11 days to be hosting a week from sunday the cleveland browns. they, in many respects may have saved their season. let's go to tracy. tracy: thanks so much. joe, to come back down 13 on the road against your bitter rival, no steve smith sr., talk about the fight in this team that they showed tonight. joe: you know, i think you could see it. it's crazy. we think we can come in here and throw the ball a little bit. but it's the typical ugly game that you play if pittsburgh. i don't know why you expect or want to expect anything else. it's what you're going to get. and you're going to have to be able to grind it out. it's who can stay mentally tough. hey, i turn it would ball over two times. in this type of game that usually loses the game for you big-time. you usually can't recover from that. you have to give it to our defense down the road. obviously they kept going for
11:51 pm
it. they didn't want to kick the ball there. i wish we'd got an little bit closer and maybe played more aggressive down the stretch. when i went to the sideline i said let him win the game. he's probably the best kicker in the game and you have to let him do what he did. tracy: your coach talked about just getting out of the rut. how much confidence does this guy -- give you guys going forward? joe: it's a big win. i think we're a pretty confident group no matter what but anytime you can fight through one like thksst -- it definitely does a lot, especially the young team that we have. tracy: congratulations getting your first win. joe: thanks. jim: so flacco victorious. vick coming in and trying to learn this system. what about pittsburgh and where they go from here? again, roethlisberger is going to be out for at least another three games or so phil: joe flacco, i thought that was interesting.
11:52 pm
yeah, you never know. throw the ball, turns into ugly and that was so true. michael vick played safe and did enough things that make you think that web we can open up this offense, teach him in a next few days to give our feel a greater chance to win. jim: you remember what john harbaugh said last night? he was pretty tight-lipped. he said you have to fight through it. this is a storm. we have to fight through it, stick together and when we come through this storm, we're going to be a true team. i'm at peace right now. he looked at you and he said because i know we're a good team. this was quite a test tonight and that team never gave up. phil: if this can't give you emotion to start playing and doing things a little different i don't know what could.
11:53 pm
job by the ravens pulling this out. jim: they all count the same, they say but some wins are more important than others. this was a huge one tonight. phil: it was and they pulled it out. jim: back with more after this on cbs and nfl network. this is to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira helping me reach for more. doctors have been prescribing humira for more than 10 years. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contrubutes to ra symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have

11:57 pm
1-3, dropping the steelers to 2-2 and john harbaugh still has never lost four games in a row as head coach in the national football league. rich eisen, marshall faulk, steve mariucci, michael irvin. steve, the steelers went for it on fourth down not once but twice in overtime and neither time did they give the ball to le'veon bell. what gives is the question i have. steve: that's why i was curious. of course, they missed two field goals prire to that and so they're going to go for it on fourth down. i didn't question that but the play calls, you're right. le'veon bell is a great back. i felt sure he would get the ball both times. the first time was michael vick sweep. great by the defense. the other fourth down, it's well-blocked, they have too many people. michael: too many people is what coach said. i want to write this down. steve: inaccurate throw and it
11:58 pm
was high. michael: late in the game there. michael vick turning around so quickly. because he started out great playing early but late started throwing high balls. marshall, you and i talked about that same play. ben roethlisberger being a right-handed quarterback. a left-handed quarterback, he has to drop back, throw that ball across his body for the game right there. that's an easier throw if you're a right-handed quarterback so you saw, as we talked earlier, the skill set difference that came into play here with michael vick and ben roethlisberger. marshall: and the ravens staring down 0-4. they turned around and handed the ball to forcett 27 times, 57 yard. they rode him tonight -- tonight. flacco was off. forcett and that offensive line took care of business. michael: we talked about steve smith doing what he does. what happens when steve smith was taken away? aiken shows up in the second half. four catches for 63 yards.
11:59 pm
big time, big-time player. rich: they turn the ball over to justin forcett. he's going to be our guest on "the mazda postgame show" soon to come but first, back out to heinz field. jim nantz, phil simms. take it away. jim: thank you, rich eisen and all the crew. this was such a fascinating game because the decisions, the nuances, the number of little decisions, the clock being reset to 2:04 from 1:59. instead of the next play being run basically coming out of the two-minute warning. the extra stoppage of play that gave the ravens more time. that was vital. phil: absolutely. jim: you go back and look at the chess match. i can't remember a game like this in a long time. phil: i can't either and no matter who won the game, that coach that lost is going to be second guessed big time.
12:00 am
with mike tomlin, we both agreed and i thought there in that situation, instead of going for it on fourth and 2, the last one, i absolutely would have tried that field goal and gavin my kicker one more time, with experience, knowing on what's going on now. we're not going to go. you saw at the end of the game or i did, mike tomlin hit his mike and said to all his coaches my bad and then he took it off. jim: you've been through seasons where things weren't going your way and all of a sudden things flipped like it did tonight for the ravens. looking not only desperate but dire. all of a sudden you will walk out on a high, you're 1-3. how do you express what this meant to this team? phil: it was big, of course. it keeps their season going, gives them hope. now they have a little momentum. the schedule is favorable for them where they can maybe play some teams they think they should beat and get sose
12:01 am
but the ravens tonight had a hard time getting open, they have to pick up the blitz. there's a lot to overcome no matter who they play to win games. jim: and farce -- as far as flacco tonight, was he off -- you don't agree with that thought. first off, there was tremendous pressure on him and he had no receivers. phil: he did the best he could. made a couple of big throws that got them into overtime. jim: we'll see you all next thursday night in houston. the late show can with stephen colbert. the "the mazda postgame show" continues on nfl network. for phil, tracy, mike carey and all the crew, jim nantz saying so long from pittsburgh, thanks

corner from the corner we haven't gotten around yet. but the campaign is already in gear. that gear? neutral. but-- (laughter) this is a very big day. you might not know it but it is the day all candidates have to report to the fed ral election commission on how much money they've received in the past three months. and the big news is that vermont senator and rooftop bee keeper bernie sanders took in a whopping $26 million. i had no idea. i had no-- yes, i agree. it's extremely impressive. i also want to point out the same people cheering are the same people who cheered for pewdiepie. i had no idea you could make that kind of cash on etsy. 26 million colors-- dollars is more than twice as much money as jeb bush pulled in, even though this summer an this is absolutely true, i gave jeb bush three dollars. (laughter) they actually had a button
12:46 am
for that amount. and it perfectly matched how much i want him to be president. it's not zero, it's not zero, then again, on the way to work today i gave a homeless guy a pfeiffer. and since then, jeb had thanked me in the form of nonstop e-mails from his whole family. i get them from jeb and all the georges, w, hw, p, boy and curious. (laughter) and you can't blame them. i understand why they keep hitting me up for the green, because these campaigns need a constant influx of money to pay for things like offices and phones and staff. so the staff will have an office where they can call you on the phone to ask for more money. so campaigns are constantly innovating new ways to pull in funds. howard dean pioneered internet fund-raising. george mcgovern was the first to raise money via direct mail and even george washington raised cash by
12:47 am
being it. (laughter) and now i'm so happy to say comes another break through moment in campaign fund-raising. thanks to florida senator and sears portrait gallery sample dad marco rubio. rubbio a web site already features some great merchandise like a marco polo shirt, or a water bottle that says "water great nation" get it? it's water, because that pun is so tortured it's like being water boarded. but the fund-raising breakthrough on the rubbio web site is that for $250 you can adopt a rubbio staffer for a day. that, i got to say, that really pulls at the heart strings. i mean i wasn't going to donate to marco rubbio but i can't let his-- rubio but i can't let his staff who are
12:48 am
evidently orphans go unpurchased. and for your it 50 you will get recognition on twitter and their web site, an update from the staffer you adopted and a postcard from their team. and as true conservatives, they might even write a message on it about how inefficient the federal government is before having it delivered anywhere in the country for 35 cents. this, i believe-- (cheers and applause) pewdiepie! this is truly ground breaking, i believe. if if they're modelling themselves on save the children, i'm thinking things are pretty rough down in rubioh hq. they may not even have access to clean drinking water because their boss takes all of it. and whether or not i happen to agree with rubio's policies, i was so inspired that i'm committed to doing anything i can to help other than giving him money. (laughter) hello.
12:49 am
i'm stephen colbert. as i speak, rubio campaign staffers are digging through garbage looking for used coffee filters to turn into tacos. these staffers work 80 hours a week. and use wet paper towels to take a bum shower in the bathroom of an iowa dunkin' doughnuts. but for just 250 dollars a day, the price of a cup of coffee every 11 minutes, which is less than they drink, you can send these staffers the help they so desperately need to keep going. like more coffee. redbull, and let's just say new hampshire marching powder. so please, call today, or don't. they'll call you. cuz they're on phone duty for the next 12 hours.
