...or to paraphrase Mark Twain again, "the reports of the death of the Steelers' Defense are greatly exaggerated."
Greetings Hogs Haven:
In keeping with the time honored tradition of posting "Ask A________Fan, I'm posting this to provide you with an opportunity to ask questions about the Steelers, the upcoming game on Sunday, or for general football related comments.
We've had some great successes with this type of post before (and some that have gone horribly wrong), but I have faith that the Redskins fan base is serious but friendly about their football.
A little bit about myself. I'm a native of Pittsburgh who came to the DC metro area for graduate school and never left. While first, foremost, and for ever more a Steeler fan, I had great admiration for the Redskins of the JKC/Gibbs era.
Having lived in this area for so long, I have strong opinions about the current ownership, but out of politeness won't share them here (though things seem to be turning around, management style-wise).
Anyone not deaf, dumb and blind can't but be wowed by your QB RGIII and what he's accomplished in just 7games. Kudos to your HC for tailoring the offense to best suit RGIII's existing skill sets and burgeoning prowess.
I hope for a Steeler victory, but expect it to be a high scoring game given the strength of your two-pronged rushing attack. Of course, I also hope both teams play well, and neither suffers any injuries.
Let's keep this clean and civil, shall we? With that said, good luck on Sunday, and let the inquisition begin!
