PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Every Monday, Post-Gazette Steelers Beat Writer, and 93.7 The Fan Insider, Ed Bouchette joins the Fan Morning Show. Ed jumped on to recap the Steelers’ 27-12 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
The offensive line has played very well the last two weeks keeping Ben Roethlisberger upright. Ed says that Ramon Foster is a big part of that success. Rookie David DeCastro was pegged by many to be the starter, but after his injury, Foster has elevated his level of play.
As for the situation at running back, Ed thinks there is no controversy. “For Mike Tomlin to go anywhere else would be foolish,” Ed said of Jonathan Dwyer being the starter moving forward.
The penalties on Special Teams continued, as a touchdown was wiped out by two penalties.
Ed is not too worried about the block in the back penalty to Curtis Brown. But, an old school guy, Ed was not pleased with the penalty to Antonio Brown penalty for taunting the Redskins by running backwards for the final 15 yards of the run.
