Redskins on the Fan Turnout: "Disappointed"
D.C. Sports Bog
By Dan Steinberg
By the end of this morning's open locker room, every Redskins player was being asked about the Pittsburgh fan invasion. You know, the one that prompted Michael Wilbon to write this:
The Steelers left town with a victory, with Roethlisberger also smiling and not seriously hurt, and with the Redskins licking their wounds after what felt like a loss on the road. From the racket made and "Terrible Towels" being waved, Leftwich might have thought he was playing in Pittsburgh, since between 15,000 to 20,000 Steelers fans snapped up tickets and promptly took over FedEx Field in their black road jerseys. It really gets a little tiresome hearing how great Redskins fans are, only to see fans of the Cowboys or Steelers or Eagles commandeer FedEx Field. Really, they're a very average lot, at best.
Ouch. By the way, nothing like watching Redskins fans from the stands turn their backs to the field so they can take cell phone pictures of Wilbon in the press box.
Anyhow, my original estimate of 15 percent Yinzers? Way, way, way off, according to the team.
"50-50," H.B. Blades guessed.
"it sounded like 50-50 from the noise they were making, but maybe 60-40," Fred Smoot said.
"it might have been half, I don't know, it might have been 40-60," Randy Thomas said.
"40?" guessed Casey Rabach. "When I looked at the stands after the game, there wasn't many red, there was a lot of [bleeping] black though."
"I have no clue, but there was a lot of black," Mike Sellers said. "A lot of it."
Rabach said he asked for the silent count in the second quarter, and that he and Jason Campbell used it about a half-dozen times. Why?
"I couldn't [bleepin'] hear him," Rabach said.
