The Hidden Truth
By Tiger Rowan

Before I even start my report on the WASH-PITT game, I have to make one quasi-tangential comment:

Mike Wallace had a great game.

I have been on him for a few weeks, and it appears that he heard me… because, he caught some very difficult passes, which was no minor feat, considering the wet conditions (i.e. one could easily have used the weather as an excuse for underperforming). Furthermore, after those receptions, Wallace drove upfield with vigor, and even stretched out for a first down. Great game, Wallace!!!

On the flip-side of that coin, were Washington’s receivers. You will hear from the nay-saying talking heads that Pittsburgh “lucked out”, because Washington dropped so many balls. To which I retort, “Uh… NO.”

First of all, you will hear that Robert Griffin III (RGIII) had touchdown passes dropped. While this is true, to an extent, the reality is that the people who are pointing out the drops are actually hiding some important facts. Those trying to rain on Pittsburgh’s parade, are not necessarily lying; they just are not telling the entire truth. Let me use one particular drive as an example: Washington’s touchdown drive.
