Are you serious? We'll come back healthy after the bye and it will make a big difference, All our road games besides baltimore are gimmes(in theory) Still don't think dallas can beat us and not sold on philly, We win 10 at least.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

No need to panic after this game. Would it have been nice to have won, sure. However the fact we are 6-3 at this point I most happy about. You got to hand it to the Steelers their D was beast last night.

Glad we have a BYE, you can tell we need it.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

The Steelers put on one of the most impressive defensive games I have EVER seen.

Campbell was getting hit on every play! Portis...51 yards! They even blocked a punt. First interceptions of the year for JC.

Wow.

Great game, Steelers.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

Hard to quibble with the fact that the Steelers played a solid game defensively. I cannot understand why we kept blitzing Letfwich on 3rd and long when he kept burning us. Drop into coverage and play the pass; don't go for the sack. It worked against Roethlisburger but not agaist Leftwich. That killed us.

Having said that, our D was very good, and we asked way too much of them as a result of not being able to sustain drives. We cannot have the kind of field position that we got in the first quarter and fail to score a TD against a team with a D like the Steelers like that and hope to win. JC didn't look sharp at all -- even the very best QBs will have a game like that, so no need to panic. But at one point when they showed the stats for hurried, knocked down, sacked, INTs, and number of pass plays, I noticed it was something over 50% of the time he was being smacked around. I hope our O-line was embarassed and pulls it together in the second half of the season. The only solid effort I thought was Randy Thomas (who in my view is completely unheralded and deserving of mention).

Can we really call any game a gimme after losing to the Rams and allowing both the Browns and the Lions to hang around in the 4th quarter? Cincy deserved to beat the Giants in NY, and they gave Dallas a scare in Texas. I wouldn't call that, or any other game a gimme at this point.

Great game, Steelers.
If the Steelers play like that against Philly and Tennessee, it's hard to see them losing those games. Granted, both of those teams are way better in pass pro than we are, but they time their blitzes so perfectly that it basically gives us no downfield game whatsoever.

If we could time our blitzes as well as they do, they probably don't score on us all game.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Gameday thread

i don't know, I think these past few weeks have really taken some of my optimism. I started out the year thinking we'd be lucky to go .500, then with our success, my expectations got to he 10-6, 11-5 range. Now i'm slowly starting to worry about a second half drop off, possibly finishing out 8-8 or 9-7 and missing the playoffs.

Steelers already lost to Philly

I know there were a few folks that were annoyed with Toyota's "saved by zero" commercials during the game. Well, you are not the only ones:

Save us from 'Saved by Zero,' TV watchers complain

One of the most annoying commericals EVER! I swear my blood pressure goes through the roof whenever that commercial comes on! I always grab the remote and quickly hit mute.
