Forgot to mention, I think this is a very dangerous game for Pittsburgh.  It's really a lose/lose situation.

They win and Washington was a pretender; RGIII hype was premature; Skins are worst team in NFCE; etc., etc.

They lose and Washington is definitely on the upswing; RGIII pushing for MVP candidacy; Steelers can't beat the good teams; etc., etc.

Regardless, they need the "W," though...badly.  Gotta get their heads above .500 and keep them there if they expect to make any sort of postseason push.  A win keeps them within striking distance (game and a half~ish) of the idle Ravens.

While Griffin has hurt opposing teams through the air, I'm most concerned about Pittsburgh's ability to contain him on the ground.  Morris will likely have a decent day too.  It's gonna be a "bend, don't break" attitude, I think.  Just don't give up the big play.  Ben and the aerial attack should have a big day.  Sprinkle in some runs to keep the defense honest.  Hopefully Dwyer and Rainey can build on their nice showings last week.

I'm hoping that ****ie can dial up some magic for the rook.  Pittsburgh defense does tend to be a difficult draw for newbies, but this guy makes a Michael Vick in his prime look slow (guess I'm a racist for making that comparison) AND he can sling it.

If you're attending this one, be loud, people; be very, very LOUD.

FG game.  Steelers win, but don't cover.  23-20.

Sorry.  Just...gross.

Hopefully, Skins players are easily distracted.


"Steelers will wear absurd throwbacks this week"

Yeah, he got the headline right.  Those are a caricature of NFL uniforms crossed with 1920's prison garb.  Jebus.

Check that.  I misspoke.



...is back in the lineup.



How has Wilson not addressed this yet?

Am I just blowing this out of proportion here?

I like it, I like it alot.  Great call Tomlin.  It would have been a victory for the 'Skins to hold 'em to a FG after a great opening drive like that.

Nice defensive series, great start to the game.  The bumble bee look is lucky!?

I'm loving Dwyer.  Doesn't go down easy, has enough speed.  It'll be tough to put him back on the bench.

I almost feel sorry for RG3, the drops man, the drops.
