"We’re very aware of it," Griffin III said. "We pray for everybody’s safety. Hopefully, it won’t affect our preparation or anyone else. It’s definitely something we’re conscious of and we’ll get back tonight and see what happens."
Steelers 27, Redskins 12: Ten Observations | WashingtonExaminer.com
Back to the differences. An NFL source said it’s the difference between having a philosophy and just installing a system. The Steelers, the source said, have a philosophy. Is that fair? When you’re not going well anything is fair. You want to blame coordinator Jim Haslett? Go ahead. This isn’t about one game or one play. It’s now about a body of work. This defense does not come close to comparing to the Gregg Williams’ units. In my time covering the Redskins, that group was as prepared as any. Yes, they got burned at times but could you imagine that D with this quarterback?
Chris Cooley held without a catch in first game back with Redskins
"It’s hard for me to say," Cooley said. "I didn’t do a whole heck of a lot. I was out there maybe 15, 20 plays, mostly blocking kind of stuff. I think probably average."
Washington Redskins Post Game Thoughts: Week 8 | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
Typically this year the Washington Redskins have lost because of their failures on defense or special teams, but the games were close due to positive performances from their offense and a big play or two from their defense. That didn't happen against Pittsburgh as they lost in every facet of game.
How do you feel about DeAngelo Hall?
Hall can be something of a lightning rod for the fan base, because of his contract, because of his outspokenness, because of the overall disappointing poor play of the secondary. Hall also has a reputation as a ballhawk, but not a technically sound, lockdown cornerback. Those guys are pretty hard to find, and it’s a tough criticism to dislike a guy for being just pretty good or average at what he does, but Hall at times has been feted with the fanfare of a cornerback of that stature.
Fletcher: 'We're Not Going To Make Excuses'
Fletcher told the media after Sunday's game that he felt his hamstring injury during the game, but felt confident enough to play all 60 minutes. "It held up pretty good. Not 100 percent, but good enough to go out there and make some plays," he said. "Overall, I was happy I was able to get through the game and I don't feel like I set myself back at all."

Need to Know: Redskins have no margin for error - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Against the Steelers we saw what it looks like when the bend but don’t break defense doesn’t get much help from the offense and breaks. While Ben Roethlisberger and company were doing the proverbial hot knife through butter thing through the Redskins defense, scoring touchdown, field goal, touchdown, field goal on their first four possessions, RG3 and the Redskins offense struggled.
Drops lead to RG3's worst day - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Griffin certainly put up the worst numbers of his young career. The rookie completed 16 of 34 passes for 177 yards and one touchdown. His rating was a very pedestrian 72.8. It is safe to say that the mediocre stats were not all Griffin’s fault. The Redskins dropped 10 passes during the game. To put that in perspective, they came into the game with just 11 drops in their first seven games.
Trick play gone awry a setback in worst game of RG3's NFL tenure - Washington Times
After an unrelenting early-season string of big hits, the Washington Redskins preached protection to Griffin. Run out of bounds instead of going for the extra yard. Slide, don’t dive. Throw the ball away. Avoid contact. Play smart. But in the second quarter of the 27-12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Griffin found himself alone, exposed and, eventually, belted during an unusual trick play. "I’ve run that play a lot of times," coach Mike Shanahan said, "and quarterbacks have walked in."
Robert Griffin III says Redskins won’t quit on each other after rough game - The Washington Post
"Effort has never been an issue with this team," Griffin said. "We played hard every play. I tell people I’m never going to quit. It’s not in my DNA to step on the field and not go 100 percent. . . . I never felt we were out of the game, even up to [the point where] we went for it on fourth down with four minutes left."
