- 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.
