Robert Griffin III
PITTSBURGH -- Robert Griffin III might be the freshly anointed one, but Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers showed the Washington Redskins rookie quarterback what an elite performance looks like. Roethlisberger was an efficient 24 of 33 for 222 yards and three touchdowns, Jonathan Dwyer carried 17 times for 107 yards, and Pittsburgh's defense stymied Griffin to win 27-12 at Heinz Field. Griffin came into the game with the NFL community buzzing about his performance through the first seven weeks. But the Steelers shut down his ability to run (six carries, eight yards) while also eliminating rookie running Alfred Morris (13 carries, 49 yards). With no running game to lean on, Griffin tried to carry Washington with his arm. He completed 16 of 34 passes for 177 yards, and he was victimized by 10 clear drops by Washington receivers. Meanwhile, Roethlisberger put on a show in the first half. The Steelers scored on their first four possessions as Pittsburgh took a 20-6...
BEST OF MAXIM
I missed all of the first half and most of the second half of this one preparing for Frankstorm, but the Steelers defense put down another dominant performance at Heinz Field, where they've only lost once since the start of the 2011 season. The Steelers suffocated Robert Griffin III in a 27-12 win.
RGIII was being called the "best player in football" by some heading...
Big Ben Roethlisberger just plunking the referee in the head with a pass like it ain't no thing. Don't make a bad call against the Steelers or you know what you're up against. I just can't wait until he tries to pull that on Ed Hochuli and Ed tosses him in the torture rack until he taps out. Video of the pass below if you missed it.
P.S. Am I the...
Many like to call the new offense of the Pittsburgh Steelers a "dink and dunk" one, but perhaps a better name for it would be an "upright" offense. Upright because that is exactly what quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been for a good part of this season.
Through the first 7 games of the season Roethlisberger has been sacked only 13 times. He is on pace to be...
Now I understand Robert Griffin III is a very good athlete and can do all kinds of things, but having him go out for a pass wasn’t a smart thing … Continue reading »
There was some great quarterback play Sunday and it didn't come from the well talked about, and highly hyped, Washington Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was head and shoulders better than the one that they call RG3 at Heinz Field.
Roethlisberger was 24-of-33 for 222 yards with three touchdowns on Sunday as the Steelers...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and are now 4-3 on the season. Below are the players, or group of players, that I thought had winning performances in the game and 3 more players that deserve a little slap on the wrist.
Ben Roethlisberger - Roethlisberger was surgical-like from the very beginning of the game on his way to a 24-of-33...
In an attempt to get something going against the Pittsburgh Steelers offensively on Sunday, Mike Shanahan decided it would be a good idea to try a little trickery with Robert Griffin III. The Washington Redskins called for a play that appeared to be a reverse to receiver Josh Morgan, but instead Morgan became the quarterback and Griffin the receiver. And RG3 got lit up by Steelers...
We all know that RG3 infectious smile, confident tone we hear in the press conferences win or lose. Well check out this throwback picture of Robert Griffin III from high school. Remind you of anybody?
My first thought, that lovable geeky character, Bowfinger.
All in good fun, but thank goodness RG3 got that hair twisted up, don’t know how much of the shag fro we could’ve taken.
In what will be a rare occurance to ever happen in National Football League history, the past two Heisman Trophy winners will meet at FedEx Field in Washington, DC next Sunday as the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner in Robert Griffin, III of the Washington Redskins will play host to the 2010 winner of college football’s most prestigious award in Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers. Both...

I have always gotten a kick out of how much abuse an offensive coordinator gets for calling a bubble screen. Whenever anyone would comment negatively on Bruce Arians during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, you can bet that bubble screens were almost always listed as one of their dislikes, despite the overall success the play had, and how it was used to set up other passing...

All the hype coming into this one was about the Redskins sensational rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III (and the Steelers 1934 throwback uniforms). Last week I wrote about Dick LeBeau and what the Steelers might do to slow him and the Redskins offense down. Mission accomplished. No doubt RGIII was hurt by drops from his receivers, but...
Just as Terry Bradshaw became the Steelers' centerpiece 35 years ago, it's time for Ben Roethlisberger to do the same and become a true team leader and elite quarterback.
