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 in the Steelers' 27-12 win at Heinz Field. "Everyone kind of forgot about our defense because of the way we've been playing these last few weeks," Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley said. "We just got back to playing our style of football, and that's attacking." Griffin came into the game with the NFL community buzzing about his performance through the first seven weeks. However, the Steelers shut down his ability to run (six carries, 8 yards) while also limiting rookie running Alfred Morris (13 carries, 59 yards). With no running game to lean on, Griffin tried to carry...

Steelers defense, Roethlisberger strong at home again

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...

P.S. Am I the...

Dink & Dunk Steelers Offense? Why Not Call It The Upright Offense Instead?

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...

Mike Shanahan felt like a ‘dumb sh**’ for lining Robert Griffin III up at receiver

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...

Bowfinger and RG3, Long Lost Brothers

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.

Breaking Down The Fake Bubble Screen Play Against The Redskins

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...
