Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

The game simply comes down to, can we get to big ben and take him down, the other major key to the game is containing Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown who are both faster than Cruz and Nicks.

With Polamalu and London likely to miss this game, I think we're pretty evenly matched with the Steelers talent wise.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

Week after week people still think we're going to get shut down offensively or even blown out. I'm really starting to wonder what games people have been watching. We've been in every game and have taken some of the better teams in the league down to the wire.

Don't hate on his predictions guys, he's got some good points. I'm not sure on this game yet, imo it's a toss up.

I honestly feel that we are good for 21 points in every game, even with mistakes. In every game we're going to be in these games. If the defense doesn't f*ck up and the offense limits the mistakes, we win.

If those are the true keys we lose. I don't think they are though. We aren't going to have a sackfest with Big Ben. Teams rarely do.

IMO, the keys are minimizing the damage on any given play. Force turnovers. And look at each possession as a need for a score. Again a game where all three parts do their best all game, and we win. We aren't good enough for the parts to take a quarter or even a series off.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

I will be satisfied if their no-name TE's have a big day against us rather than their big name WR's. Keep it in front of the D, no home-runs, make them take drive long drives to score and hope for a couple stops.

Then simply out-score them with our creative and innovative offense led by its multi-talented QB and power rushing rookie.

Not even close.

LBs - Their favor
DL - Their favor
Safeties - Their favor
DBs- Push

QB- Push
OL- Our favor (slightly)
WR- Their favor
RB- Our favor
TE- Their favor

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

Been looking forward to this game, gf is a Steelers fan and we have this little bet going ....

Just hoping for no more injuries and a solid game from the D, don't want to be reading about another game we could have won but ended up not being able to hold on to.

We'll agree to disagree. I think RG3 is better than Ben, by more than a little. I think TALENT-WISE our offense is slightly better than theirs, and again TALENT-WISE their defense is slightly better than ours. I'm looking at talent, no more. The Steelers are far better coached though, and that will likely make the difference.

We are an Offense in it's absolute......infancy. We have barely scratched the surface of what they will become. I would think a very conservative estimate

I think we are capable of scoring more points when we play well. I think that even with mistakes we would still put up about 21 points. We put up 23 against the Giants with a lot of mistakes and missed opportunities.

Anything is possible with RG3 back there, but being realistic, i expect the Steelers to hold down his rushing and spy him alot being that they have stud LBs in Harrison, Woodley and Timmons. The Steelers defense even without Polamalu is good and their defensive coordinator is crafty and has been one of the best for years. People are calling the Steelers defense old (like the Ravens) but do not count them out. Yes, weeks 1 and 3 they gave up over 30 points, but week two, they only allowed 10 points to the Jets, beat Philly and held them to 14 points and just Sunday ,beat the Bengals in their stadium keeping them to 17 points. More importantly, they held one of the leagues top 5 WR's AJ Green to just 1 catch and 8 yards. The same AJ Green who torched us for 9 catches 183 yards.

Expect our defense to look the same if not worse from the Giants game. The Steelers have one of the top receiving corps in the league (probably better than the Giants) in Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. Wallace has world class speed and Brown is not too far behind. Brown is also a dangerous return man. Heath Miller as their TE has reemerged this year and has become a touchdown machine. Not only will our defense have problems covering their speedy WR, most likely our secondary will give 10 yard cushions all game long in hopes of not getting burned deep only to give up first down after first down. And oh yeah, we always seem to have problems covering TE's.

If we can not generate any pressure on Roethlisberger, it's a losing battle for our defense. London Fletcher may not even be playing for us this week. Problem with Roethlisberger is that he is dangerous with pressure as he can escape and is much more mobile than Eli Manning was last week. Either we don't blitz and let Roethlisberger scramble or sit in the pocket all day or we do blitz, it gets picked up and we leave one of the worst secondary's in the league exposed to some of the fastest WRs in the league.

Not much hope for our WR's of Hankerson, Moss and Josh Morgan of torching their secondary. They will probably spotlight Moss anyway the few times he is in the game to take that option away. (Steelers will look at last weeks tape against the Giants). Garcon is out. Fred Davis out. Cooley may not even be factor or play much considering this is his first week back.

Maybe we can get the running game going with Alfred Morris and keep their offense off the field but the Steelers run defense has been pretty stingy, only allowing a 100 yard rusher once so far this season(Mcfadden).

I know, with RG3 anything is possible and this is the NFL anything can happen any week. But being a realist, RG3 cannot play QB, WR, Safety and CB. Go into the game with realistic expectations and you will not be dissapointed if we get blown out, or lose another close one. However, i am hoping for a win, just not too confident.

Steelers: 27 Redskins: 13
We were able to score fine on Minnesota and Atlanta and nobody has stop the run yet. I doubt we will have problems scoring -- also stay away from sharp objects. From the sound of your post you are about to snap
