Tale of the tape: Redskins defense
1. It’s too bad the Steelers didn’t play their starting O-line more than two series so we could get an even better read on Washington’s defensive front. Nonetheless, NT [B]Barry Cofield[/B] is a major upgrade over last year. On his first play, he got moved back a little bit, though part of that came from DE [B]Stephen Bowen[/B] bumping into him. Still, both occupied their men and the linebackers flew to the ball. Rocky McIntosh was in position to make a good stop, but allowed [B]Rashard Mendenhall[/B] to turn the corner. [B]London Fletcher’s[/B] speed ended the play. It was a four-yard gain, but had the line allowed Fletcher to be blocked, it would have been much worse.[LEFT][COLOR=#000000]
