We're not lesser competition, but we will be the underdogs, hence my comments that I hope they come overconfident.

We hardly force 3 and outs and we constatly give up yards on 3rd downs. Usually teams don't score touchdowns on us in the redzone because of their own screw ups. We get the ball moved on us at will. If our offense doesn't score 30 points, we aren't winning(with the exception of the Bucs game) and we still may lose wile scoring 30. Christian Ponder (who sucks) threw for 352 yards against us in our stadium. An improving defense would not have allowed that 77 yard td last week , maybe not even a college defense.

Also, the Steelers 3rd string RB who you are referring to rushed for 122 yards on 17 carries Sunday. The Steelers never needed a premier feature back to get the job done.
While your first post was decently portrayed, this one not so much. If we do a few fact checks:
Our 3rd down defense is better than Pittsburgh's (our opponents converting 40 of 90(44%), theirs 34 of 72 (47%)

Christian Ponder, who you say sucks, has the 6th best completion percentage, 3 ahead of BR.

Every defense has given up a long bomb at times. Wasn't happy it happened, but Eli has done that to many a teams. It happens, just like Griffin's 76 yd TD happens, or Moss's 30yd TD catch happens.

I was looking for 3 and out stats, but couldn't find any, but yards per drive for Pitt Defense is 34.3 (or 25th in league), and ours is 35.1 (27th)

I have no idea how one would prove or disprove the point that our opponents don't score in the redzone due to their own screwups. Would you consider DHall's int at the end of the Vikings game their screwup or a good play by our D?

I like Dwyer, but he is their 3rd option still on their depth chart. I doubt we game plan worrying about him beating us, but use extra support to our backend. He is kinda a Morris type, so he can do some damage, but I doubt we win or lose because of him.

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

Its because of Kyle and his poor play calling.

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
