Game 8: 23-6 (W)  
If it hadn't been for those 6 "gimme" points at the beginning of the game, the Steelers would've shut the Redskins out completely. Leftwich started the second half, and he did a great job. Defense was incredible all game, and even special teams had some great plays (aside from the onside kick at the beginning).

Jeff Reed shanked an extra point? WTF?

Also, is anyone else sick of these bullshit roughing the passer calls? The League's going way overboard with this crap.

The announcers were astounded by the black-and-gold fan turnout in DC. They really should know better by now! They also say "Palamulu."

The bullshite roughing the passer calls are getting way out of hand. And widdle Tommy Bwady (you have no idea how perverse the pleasure is that I feel that that son of a bitch is out for the season) is largely responsible for the league going there, because he was sick of getting his arse kicked...like he so richly deserves.

I woke up in time to see the last few seconds of the game. I work nights, so eh yeah I missed it, but Mum did DVR it.

I cringe whenever NFL announcers attempt Polynesian names...We screamed a lot at the telly whenever they tried to come close to attempting "Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala"...

But yes! Another win! All is well. =D

I don't see how those last names are really that hard. You just gotta take time to read them! ^_^ I have an Irish last name that most people butcher- also for no good reason- so I sympathize.

What angers me about those calls is that a) the refs expect everyone to treat the QB like china dolls- why all the protective gear then? Just wear skirts, ladies- and b) the refs want defensive players to violate the laws of physics. Seriously, a man weighing 200 or more pounds has launched himself at the QB, full-tilt. You expect him to stop on a dime once the ball leaves the QB's hands? Sir Isaac Newton would like to have a word with you.

At least there was some poetic justice out of the deal. Farrior got called for roughing the passer on 4th-and-something (and Tomlin lost his shit over it, heh), which ultimately put the Redskins in their best scoring position all night. They got to 4th-and-goal on the one yard line. Campbell attempted a pass... and Farrior batted it out of the air. =D No TD for you!

I loved watching Tomlin lose his shit. I mean, not that I wanted him to be in that position, but he mirrored my response, but far more emotionally.

"Are you kidding me?"

Fer chrissakes, it's football, not Intramural Ladies Badminton. It can't be played in a frilly dress after High Tea. You're going to get hit, and you're going to get hurt, and if you're not okay with that, go play baseball.
