'You run the ball, that's what you've got to do'

'You run the ball, that's what you've got to do'

'Stingy' is a word often used to describe the Steelers defense. 

When it comes to yardage, the Steelers have allowed 92.5 rushing yards per game placing them 9th in the league and Pittsburgh ranks second overall against the pass allowing an average of 195 yards per game in their first seven contests.

Washington, however leads the league in rushing yards in both yards per game with 177.7 and cumulative mileage of 1244 yards puts the burgundy and gold first in the league for total yards.

How does rookie running back, Alfred Morris, who is just a yard shy of leading the league in rushing yards behind, Houston's Arian Foster, expect to win the rushing battle at Heinz Field?

By simply 'out rushing them' Morris said with a laugh Thursday.

A back who prides himself on his 'durability and toughness,' Morris isn't preparing for the match-up versus the 'Steel Curtain' any differently, 

"We played some of the top defenses thus far…it's always going to be a challenge, but we look forward to that challenge…it's definitely going to be a nice clash come Sunday."

As for fullback, Darrel Young? The game plan hasn't changed for him either. 

"…Same way we were preparing for Tampa, when they were the best. I mean, you run the ball that's what you gotta do…can't be afraid to not do something that you are doing well. They have to worry about stopping us, that's the way I look at it…

We just got to tackle them just like we did in pre-season last year. We just got to do it again," Young said with a wry smile.

The Redskins won that contest on the road, 16-7. One would argue it was 'just' pre-season, but the Steelers haven't seen Morris yet or that other rookie, Robert Griffin III...

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

On Monday morning, the Redskins made several new coaching hires official, including Jim Tomsula as the new defensive line coach.

Tomsula was out of football in 2016 after serving as the 49ers head coach for the 2015 season in which the team finished 5-11.

Despite struggling as a head coach, Tomsula gained an odd, if not heavy cult following. It made little sense considering he has the look and demeanor of someone who was put on this earth to coach football and coach football only. But through the glories of the internet came this:

The Jimmy Tomsula rap song.

It's just a demo, and I suppose the full version could be out there somewhere since this song is over a year old. But there's something hypnotizing about 60 consecutive seconds of "Open up my shirt like im Jimmy Tom-Sula."

How long before we begin hearing this song at FedEx Field on Sundays?
