Big Ben has won 2 super bowls -- RG3 has played 7 really good games. Let's hold off on saying RG3 is better

Well the problem with that is, if RGIII is not better than Big Ben and we win over an otherwise evenly matched opponent, you may actually have to credit Shanahan ... and that would just plain suck.

As Ben Roethlisberger went 13 - 0 in his rookie season, and as much as I swoon over RGIII, he can't be compared to the rapist. Give RGIII a season or two and he'll be considered the best QB ever to play.

As the rapist has already played more than a season or two I thought it was self explanatory, but in fairness to the window lickers on WP I've edited my response.

k?

WE WIN!

I don't know why, how or what the score will be, but...

WE WIN!

Maybe just because collectively the team and coaching staff will rally around the great performance that RGIII displayed last week to put the team in position to win on more than one occasion; and because individually everyone will step up their game a notch or two.

Tough place to go on the road to get a win against a physical Pittsburgh team, but...

WE WIN!

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

I think this game comes down to how many times Kyle throws a INT or fumbles the ball. If we can keep his turnovers down, we'll win.

Bengals Steelers is a divisional game and may not be the best barometer for what to expect from the Steelers. I don't see why we can't put up points like the Titans and Raiders did. We're top 5 in scoring and should expect to move the ball on anyone.

Correct. Turnovers are a direct result of bad play calling

Also how many times Haslett blows a coverage or misses a tackle.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

You're right. It not Haslett's fault. The fact that the secondary didn't play last year like this and had improved from 2010 to 2011 speaks volumes. Then Slowik leaves and the Redskins hires Raheem Morris as defensive backs coach and then all of a sudden the defensive backs can't defend the pass worth a damn.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

For some reason, i feel like the Skins win this one going away. The Steelers' defense is old, I'm thinking it will be a big day for RG3 (again)...

Slowik didn't leave. He's coaching the LBs now
