with the greatest group of Skins fans!
So Come On Out To The Hideaway!

Some Familiar Faces [re]Joining Us on the Rollercoaster!
 
So very close . . . so VERY, VERY close . . . not only  the game vs. the World Champion Giants, but the Redskins as a whole.  The “new look” Redskins’ first battle in the NFC East was a great indication of the years of excitement we have to look forward to.  RGIII hooked up with Santana Moss to finish off a stirring drive with a minute and a half to go to put us ahead, but the lack of speed in our secondary gave the score right back as Victor Cruz sped past Josh Wilson to put the Giants back in front.  RGIII again tried to rally the Burgundy & Gold, but Santana Moss fumbled the ball away and the deal was sealed.  However, the day was such an encouraging example of how far we have come in such a short time, with the addition of both a true franchise Quarterback and a strong young Running Back.  We are in EVERY game . . . until the clock shows triple zeros.
 

This week it is time for the short trip to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers in Heinz Field.  Their fans have traveled well to FedEx Field in past years, and hopefully our fans will return the favor and make the trip to invade their stadium to support RG III’s first foray into this cross-conference battle.  The Steelers’ offense has struggled somewhat this season, with QB Ben Roethlisberger and OC Todd Haley being at odds over the “Dink and Dunk” style of offense they are going to run.  They have decent #1 and #2 wide receivers in Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, but their running backs have been decimated by injuries.  We lost our leading receiver in the first quarter last week when an Achilles tear put TE Fred Davis on IR for the year, but fan favorite TE Chris Cooley has returned to the team, as has RB Keiland Williams, who replaces released Ryan Grant.  

Overall, this game looks a LOT more winnable now than I thought at the beginning of the year, so I am going on that limb and predicting disappointment for the Black and Gold and victory for our Redskins!
