Default Justin Tuck whining about Steelers

Apparently the Redskins have answers on why our O-Line looked good...excessive holding that the refs ignored.

Yea cause we never get held on defense....

James Harrison was arguably the most "held" player in the NFL for a few years... yet he still managed to win defensive MVP and lead the team in sacks. Granted now he's a shell of his former self, but still. Holding is no longer illegal in the NFL unless the victim is a WR.

Actually that is the Giants doing some pre-emptive working of the refs in preparation for Sunday in New York

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has only been sacked four times in his past four games and didn't get sacked at all last Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Pittsburgh's improved pass protection isn't the result of better blocking, according to Giants defensive lineman Justin Tuck.

the redskins shouldve tried excessive holding onto the ball.

justin tuck n duct is just making pre-emptive excuses for when he gets bitch slapped by our TE and dry whale humped by "free willie" colon.:

As it's been said, Harrison was held ridiculously too. There's holding on every play if you look hard enough, but it's just part of the game. The Redskins lost because they couldn't catch a ball all game and their secondary is absolutely brutal.

'Skins fans can see that, the players were just embarrassed and are looking for answers instead of acknowledging the fact they were outplayed.

Also, Tuck, really? I think he's just making excuse so when he gets outplayed and held without a sack, he'll have something to fall back on. The rest of the Giants are talking the Steelers up, which is nothing unusual, so I'm not sure what Tuck is trying to do.

Should be a great game on Sunday.

and therefore the title of your thread is misleading, it's not the Redskins that are whining about the Steelers.

it's just Justin Tuck trying to plant that seed into the referees' minds in advance of Sunday's game.
