We got our asses crushed tonight. Once that homefield advantage wore off in the first quarter, they killed us on both sides of the ball. Blache called an awful game, but with the way the offensive line played, it probably doesn't matter.

We got outplayed and outcoached, but it is what it is. The game doesn't mean anything in terms of tiebreakers, and if we go out and kill Dallas, everyone forgets this one. It's going to be well in the past by the next time we play.

The only thing we have to fix is on the offensive line, and it's the same issues we had in the last four games. Totally unblocked guys coming through on the quarterback are completely unacceptable for an offense as strong as us. Jon Jansen can't play tackle in the NFL anymore. We have to stop pretending like he can. He's a utility lineman at this point. Stephon Heyer should start at RT. Casey Rabach probably shouldn't be playing in the NFL because he can't read blitz packages at all. I feel bad for poor Randy Thomas, stuck between those two against the pass, theres just no winning.

Samuels, I feel, didn't play all that bad. The holding calls were likely a direct result of his lack of mobility, but when you start talking about weak links, Samuels is about 7th on the list for the offense tonight. We have two gaping holes on the offensive line.

And like pretty much every QB, Campbell is inaccurate when he gets rattled.

Also: Steelers are way better with Leftwich at QB than Roethlisberger. That's no mistake. Ben takes sacks, Byron throws the football. That's the difference. If they can protect Ben, he's great, but this Steelers team is better with Leftwich, who was amazing tonight.
I can't believe I'm reading that. And what's more... I can't believe how much I agree with that, at least for this game.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

We got beat by the best defence in the league. We have played 9 regular season games in a row, and then add the 5 preseason games. It is all good. If someone said wew ould be 6-3 going into the bye I would be totally pumped. We will hopefully get Taylor and Springs back heathly and others that are nicked up. So come one Skisn fans, we are looking good to make the playoffs and possibly win the division. Also we alsways win the Superbowl after the Giants do so, keep your head up and your chest out cause we are going to kill Dallas in two weeks.

Hail to the Redskins!!!!!!

I have to agree with you for the most part. When all of our cylinders are working, we are a rather solid team, but we are banged up, and with an offensive system that isn't conducive to scoring for us for some reason. Right now, I can envision us at 9-7 or 8-8.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

One thing is very apparent, and this is a "west coast" thing, I think. If we do not get any rhythm, we look horrid. Sure, Pitt's D took us out of lots of things, but we need to find ways to get moving when the first options are not working.

Look, we're 6-3 at the bye, and I'm sure everyone on this board would have been totally psyched about that coming into the year. We've got some soft road games we must win: Seattle, Cincy, and SF. If we do that, we're at 9 wins. Then just one more win: Philly, Dallas, NY at home, Raisins in baldamore. I think 10 wins will get us a WC. Of course, we should win those NFC Easties at home as well. And fuck the Raisins! But even if we stumble there, we've got winnable games. ANd yes, I know. We lost to the Rams and we barely beat the brownies and the Lions. But we got 6 wins out of a VERY tough first half + 1. Now, recharge, regroup, and GET IT DONE!

Hail from Houston.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

I honestly thought this game would be very easy *IF* we could find a way to protect the QB. We didn't, and it wasn't.

And of course, Leftwich's play was not something I accounted for. Without him, we probably come back in the second half of that game.

That move alone is the entire difference between the Steelers organization and the Cowboys organization. It encapsulizes why, despite considerable injury to both teams, Pittsburgh is a top 5 team, and the Cowboys might be a Top 25 team on a good day.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

Just goes to show how imporatant depth is, that's all. If the Cowboys had good depth they would've kept rolling when Romo went down, instead they had Brad Johnson and that's part of why they aren't looking good.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

Maybe I just still don't know anything but...

What is so inherittely wrong with our passing game other than we never really give it much of a shot because our running game is so good? Zorn seems to love quarterbacks so much he was about to bloody propose to Cambell tonight when he called the time out. he has deffinitely worked him and it seems to have paid off in some respects. Moss looks good (though broken at the monet. But heck did you see pittsburg's special teams? They looked like amputated vietnam vets). cooley looks good. I'd say we aren't blocking but sacking doesn't LOOK like a consistent problem to me....What is it?

That's a good question redwarrior. I wish I had an answer for you.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

Just got in from the return trip. Not to much fun on the trip home. It looked fairly promising in the first quarter, all down hill after that.

The team just looked like shit. The o-line was gosh awful. The defense hung in there until the second half then well they looked like shit to.

Bad showing. To many of those shit head fucking steeler fans at FedEx! Ok....time for the bye this team needs a rest and they also need to return for the pukes game ready to make some adjustments and play football for 60 minutes! THE END
