If I'm not mistaken the Steelers are one of the lowest scoring teams in the league in the 4th qtr.. For me 40+ passes a game should be the norm.
I hear what you're trying to say. BUT...

The offense scored on five of its first six drives, with the punt pinning WASH at the one.

After that, it was grind out the clock.

I saw NO problem with that gameplan.

IF... WASH had become a threat (ie scored more than a FG/got within 10 points), I am sure that BB would have passed more. As it was, PITT ate up five minutes of clock; punted deep; and played defense (mostly, three & outs). Again, I have no problem with this gameplan.

Great game today, for once the team looked solid on both sides. Hopefully this is a good sign that this team is turning a page. Gonna be a great game against the GMen, especially because the Giants D looks a little shaky now.

Letting the Cowboys come that close to winning the game with 6 turnovers and giving away a 23 point lead. Coughlin didn't look happy, but then he never does.

Solid effort. I'm still concerned about the offense petering out in the second half but solid effort nonetheless. They got lucky at times but good teams seem to get luck on their side. Hopefully they can keep this going. They still have little room for error and they'll need to see how they measure up against the elite Giants.

Did all of you watch the same game I did?! Some of the comments on here make me scratch my head. We got lucky...Redskins dropped a lot of passes...Special teams is bad...not enough offense in the second half...

We beat the snot of the Redskins! Their receivers were terrified to get clobbered! Most of those Redskins drops were due to fear and our D getting their hands on the ball or "blowing them up". Special teams had one questionable penalty (block was simply a split second before Brown ran by). ST also had a punt downed on the 1 yardline. We had a huge lead and kept the ball in bounds and on the ground in the second half. That is how The Steelers finish games. It is demoralizing.

The Steelers played one of the most physical games all season. They got inside the heads of The Redskins. Look what happened to their veteran, Hall. This game was not even close from the opening drive.

ken laird and mike logan on trib live radio agree with me. http://sportstalk.triblive.com/

the redskins seemed to throw in the towel at the end of the 2nd quarter, knowing they couldnt compete with us. rgiii (who had been tearing up teams all year as the work horse) had only 2 runs up to that point, and 6 for the game. the receivers were getting hammered.

we totally took them out of their game and bit the head off the snake.

there aint no "luck" in that.

this wasnt the refs throwing a beneficial flag or their star player being knocked out with an injury...

it was an old fashion ass thrashin.

I would agree, this was as good a win as any team could want. The skins drops and all...well, when you're playing dominant football, things just tend to go your way. This was proof. It was good luck, but we made it for ourselves out there on the field.

We played physical, but smart(No stupid 15 yard penalties this week). The offense took what they gave us but stayed patient, switched things up to keep them guessing, and got the job done.

according to ed b.-


Robert Griffin's receivers largely failed their tests by dropping, unofficially, seven of his passes. The steady rain that fell throughout might have been a factor, although linebacker James Harrison suggested something else at work.

"Some may be rain, and you can look and see when a guy is trying to catch the ball and moves his head around sometimes just to see who's there. When guys are flying around and hitting people, you're going to have that."

Labriola on win over Redskins

by Bob Labriola
Steelers Digest

It would be easy to be seduced by what happened last Sunday at Heinz Field, just as it was easy to despair over what went on in Oakland and then in Nashville over a three-week period about a month ago. An NFL season can have more ups and downs than a roller coaster for a team’s fans, but at least it seems as though the Steelers are ready to get off the ride.

Thanks to their 27-12 victory over the Washington Redskins last Sunday at Heinz Field, the Steelers have pulled themselves over .500 for the first time this season, but even more significantly there has been a consistency of performance developing that’s as significant as the wins they have begun to stack.

The contention that the Steelers have disembarked the roller coaster should not be assumed to mean their performances now will take on a steady ascending arc, because they very well could lose this Sunday to the New York Giants. And maybe even look bad doing it.

But nobody gets through an NFL season unscathed anymore, particularly not the high profile teams with the high profile players. It has happened to everybody during these initial wacky weekends where, just to cite one example, the Miami Dolphins are nipping at the heels of the New England Patriots for first place in the AFC East. Were you watching “Hard Knocks?” Those Dolphins are one-half game behind Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Explain that.

It can be explained simply by accepting that what happens in the NFL often is inexplicable, and only then do things begin to come into focus.

The 2012 Steelers are flawed, and making a list of those should be a simple matter for anyone who has been paying even marginal attention since Labor Day. But it has taken the last fortnight for some of their qualities to blossom and become something more than a rumor. Something substantial they should be able to use as the basis for a run at the championship of the AFC North, and then after that, who knows.

The Steelers still have issues, and those issues can cost them any of the remaining games on their schedule, but what has happened of late is that they have learned they are capable of compensating with other players or with other facets of their game, and they are capable of compensating sufficiently to start stacking some wins.

What has happened over the past fortnight is the Steelers have stayed relevant in both their division and their conference through a very rough patch for them that included a slew of injuries to some key players at same stage of development when individuals are working to come together as offensive and defensive units. Now they are one-game behind the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North and tied in the loss column with the teams currently atop the AFC East and AFC West.

The Steelers are 4-3 and they have learned how to deal with their own foibles, inadequacies, and a bunch of injuries. There’s still half a season left, and their injured continue to heal. A lot of football left, so buckle up. Should be a heckuva ride to the finish line.
