Redskins v. Steelers – Third Quarter Thoughts


  • Down on the sidelines, you can really hear the Steelers fans. In fact, you can hear them clearly enough that it’s difficult to tell, if you don’t have a clear view of the play, which team has been successful. With the Redskins in burgundy, the whole experience is like being at an away game.
  • As I was heading out to the sidelines, Ben Roethlisberger jogged out of the X-ray room and toward the visitor’s locker room. He had been in the X-ray room, so something was obviously worth checking out, but he didn’t look particularly grim or injured. So it came as something of a shock when the Steelers quarterback suddenly gained a few pounds and changed skin color.
  • If a four point deficit seemed daunting, ten points seems borderline insurmountable. The offense just cannot get things on track, and the defense is looking more and more tired with each play.
  • And, of course, as I type that the defense forces a dominating three and out and the offense starts moving the ball more or less briskly downfield. I should just stop saying things, I guess.
  • Wow. Maybe I really should stop saying things. Jason Campbell’s first interception of the season drew actual gasps of shock in the press box, not just because it stopped the most promising drive the team has seen all day, but because it’s been so long since Campbell’s done that. They’ll challenge the play, but it was pretty clearly a pick.
  • Grim quarter, all the way around.

  1. It’s over. Put a fork in the Skins tonight, it’s over. Time to go to bed.

  2. Inside the 1 – Go for the score!!

  3. Well I hope they give the Defense the week off and make the offense work out all week. The Defense gave it all they had!! Congrats to the Defense I am really proud of them.

    Because if the offense plays like this way against Dallas We will be 6 & 4 going backwards!

    Just to note the only other team I have learned to hate besides Cowboys it’s the steelers! So this one really hurts!!

  4. Hmm. Things are looking good for Obama.

  5. I love the Redskins! And I BELIEVE in Jim Zorn! I BLEED Burgandy and GOLD! But tonight, huddling up and wasting 25 seconds EVRY F’IN play with 8 and 1/2 minutes to go……..STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!!!!!!! SHOW SOPME F’IN URGENCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m spending 2K to fly to Washington for the Dallas game……..We better get our heads out of our ass by then!!! HTTR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. The Redskins Wins have generally been by small margins, in low scoring games…With The Redskins Solid Defense and Colt Brennan as Quarterback…The Redskins would be The Best Team In The League…It is too bad we all have to wait to see this…hopefully the window of Opportunity won’t be missed…
