Week 9 Open Thread: Redskins vs. Steelers

[Update by TexSkins, 11/03/08 7:48 PM CST ] Inactives are here. No Springs or Taylor. Moss, Samuels and Griffin are in.

Consider this your open thread for tonight's game. I'll be around for most of it, as I'm sure a good number of our other writers will be. Anyway, as of this post (6:30 or so EST) most of those players expected to play are still in. Full injury report here. Springs is out. Moss is the most questionable of the questionables... I have a feeling that he'll play. He likes the spotlight.

As for the Steelers injuries, Willie Parker returns tonight after missing a few weeks. He should see some action but the Steelers are going to be careful bringing him back. Maybe 40 or so snaps. Clark and McFadden are out. Their beat up secondary could be a key for victory. BehindTheStellCurtain should have a thread up and they have some pretty good stuff as far as matchups. Go forth and check it out.

Some tidbits going into tonight, all from here. First, Big Ben:

"I’m not a big fan of playing there because it is loud, they’re really good at home, and they try to make their cheerleaders stretch in our tunnel before we come out of the locker room," Roethlisberger said. "That’s just not good."

Smart man. Now, I leave you with the wit and wisdom of Randy Thomas:

"We’re coming in 6-2; they’re 5-2. It’s going to be the day before the election," Redskins guard Randy Thomas said with a big smile. "I mean goll-ee. It’s going to be nice."

Goll-ee indeed. Anyway, here's your thread.
