Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

I'm with Hogroll, I don't have good feelings about this game...especially if Chris Samuals is not able to go.

If I still lived in the D.C. area I'd be happy to take those tickets off your hand WITH a smirk on my face to a BIG Monday night win for the Skins!

Whoever gets your tickets 24
Steeltown boys 21
i agree that the steelers O line has not been that great (losing faneca hurts) and no. 74 looked like an open highway last week against the giants but im still not sure we can get to big ben. lions and rams were supposed to have pourous O line and we didnt bring the pressure then so im a lil reluctant to think the skins can get to big ben now. i hope your right because pressuring big ben does seem to be a recipe for success.

new guy - welcome aboard buddy, and just an fyi its "end zone" not "in zone"

go skins!!

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

I dont predict scores because I'm paranoid.
But the Skins will have to come out of the shell they've been living in the last 3 weeks.
To win this game, the playcalling must become way more diverse.

I expect a ton of blitzes against us. I sure hope Samuels can play
What you see called against Pitt will be similar against the Giants....hopefully.
They should use draws, screens, reverses, bootlegs, TE slants, and runs straight up the gut, ...no sweeps please.
This defense is good, we need misdirection to use the entire field from sideline to sideline. Devin Thomas will need to come in will Moss to stretch the safety's and CB far off the line. There will be sacks, yes...but we may get some good chucks on draws too.

Regarding defense, Taylor being out could be a blessing in disguise, we need James in there more to see what he can do. I like our d in this game as long as Willie Parker is out.
Does anyone have an update on Willie Parker?

It looks like he'll be back in the lineup. Although Mewalde Moore has been playing very well, so I'm wondering if having a rusty Parker may be better. Who knows.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

The Steelers are hurting on Special Teams (long snapper hurt his knee and punter pulled hamstring against G-men) I think this game will come down to Special Teams play..

Now is that one of your patented good luck sarcastic picks, or is that for real?

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

This game is going to come down to who will impose their will on the other's Defense. Once again, I won't predict, but this should be a good game, especially since its Monday night @ home

Use your imagination, and whichever you think it was... was wrong, it's the complete opposite.

To be honest I dont even know for sure anymore.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

They have to get to Big Ben -- just once I'd like to see our team absolutely harass the opposing quarterback. Doing that will force Roethlisberger into some mistakes and help our defense get some turnovers.

Just like what we saw with Moss cashing in a punt return for TD, I think we'll need help scoring from our D and special teams.

If Samuels is out or ineffective, I don't like our chances. This is the type of game where you better have your full arsenal of weapons. I'll be interested to see Zorn's strategy for this one -- will he catch them off guard and line up with 4 and 5 wides in the shotgun? Or will he try to go toe-to-toe and smashmouth 'em? Seems like they're going to have to get a good mix and keep the Steelers guessing.

There is my first ever set of predictions, based on all my inaccuracies I can begin to fine tune my psychic football powers. =)
I don't mean to harrass you, but after portis and cooleys tds are you saying we score 2 safeties?

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

I actually think that this is the week when the score won't be close, and I have no idea who will win it. Both teams are exhausted and have some key personnel dinged up or out, and I think it is a momentum game such that whoever roars out to a good start and wins the turnover battle will run away with it. Could be us; could be the Steelers. I think the final will be 30-13, and I hope we're the ones lighting it up.

I will say that I think this has the feel of the toughest game we have on the schedule.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers predictions

I think the steelers are gonna have 8 or 9 starters questionable or more than likely out. There secondary is a weak link.
