    Default Dale Lolley's "Post-Washington thoughts"

    Saturday, August 13, 2011
    Post-Washington thoughts

    All the people who want to trade or cut James Harrison and allow Troy Polamalu to leave as a free agent at the end of the season got a good look what that would look like for the Steelers Friday night against Washington.

    It wasn't pretty.

    Thankfully for the Steelers, both will be in uniform for them this season.

    Sure, the Steelers played pretty vanilla defensively in the first half against the Redskins, but Washington was gouging Pittsburgh on the ground when both teams had their starters in the game. That's something that would be much less likely to happen with Harrison and Polamalu in the game.

    Antonio Brown continues to be perhaps the most impressive-looking player for the Steelers.

    It's a shame the new kickoff rules aren't going to allow for him to make too many returns.

    The Steelers started the game with three tight ends, with David Johnson in the backfield and John Gilmore and Heath Miller on the line.

    But Jamie McCoy did replace Johnson on the second series as the H-back.

    Tough game for Ryan Mundy. He was getting worked over so much in coverage that you would have sworn the Redskins game planned it.

    The Steelers dodged a bullet with Lawrence Timmons, who went down in the first half with a stinger that looked worse than it apparently was.

    They weren't as fortunate with Ike Taylor, who suffered a broken thumb.

    Taylor will be ready for the regular season opener, but it will give the Steelers a great opportunity to get some of their young corners more experience - if they can stay healthy.

    If you don't like the way Isaac Redman runs with the ball, you don't like football.

    Ramon Foster started at right guard, but was replaced by Chris Scott in the second series. Scott had a tough go of it, allowing a running play to get blown up and allowing a sack.

    I always enjoy the way Dale Lolley summarizes everything. It's short and sweet and to the point.

    I said this to someone, I think Geo yesterday when Mundy was geting abused but.. the guy has always been vastly overrated by fans and the media because he's a local boy from Woodland Hills. I'll continue to say this.. Umntil someone actually STEPS UP and proves themselves as being an actual capable CB, we don't have any quality starters or even Nickel and Dime backs. We can talk about all of the potential we have, we can hang from the Steelers O and Kevin Colbert's nut sac and assume everyone they draft is a Pro Bowler but ultimately, none of them are getting the results. Perhaps with Ike being out some of these guys can get some work.

    The best part about vanilla defenses is that will expose strengths and weaknesses in the most basic and most important skills - Tackling and coverage on a Defense. You dont get to rely on schemes, you get to show how you do in basics

    That's a real good point. If you can't perform your job adequately in a Vanilla defense maybe you shouldn't be on an NFL Field. Schemes shouldn't be employed to cover weaknesses, but to enhance team strengths.
