raiders are committed to the run against one of the toughest rush defenses in the league.

very strange.

3rd and long defense (nickel) fails us again.

So Chris Johnson was getting stuffed against Arizona, but they cracked because he ran it so many times, ended up getting 85 yard touchdown run, something mendenhall could do...

im glad none of you who complain about run happy are offensive co-ordinators

18 carries sure is a lot of carries..

There is also no indication the Steelers are abandoning the run.

In fact, guess what?

We have run 26 plays.

13 have been runs.

THAT'S balance.

So, let's review.
When we run more than we pass, we run too much.
When we pass more than we run, we pass too much.

YET, when we are EXACTLY balanced, we are STILL doing something too much.

I actually predicted just this, and, here it is....

Arians should use the offense to there strengths... Fire Arians please!

the Titans don't have a QB like Ben. I suppose you were screaming at the TV during the game winning Superbowl drive when Ben carved up the Cardinals and threw a TD pass that scored the winning points? I suppose you thought we should have been running it more there.

15 carries for like 30 yards, for a run offence is nothing.

add 80 then it becomes 110 yards off 16....

Already covered. They came out running, and when it didn't work early, the fans bitched and pissed and moaned that we needed to pass more IN THIS GAME.

So we passed more, and the fans.............................bitched about THAT too.

Remember when we went for it on 4th we ran the ball 4 times.

your stupid and annoying. Vince Young has as much potential as ben roethlisberger, but not as much as tyrod taylor.

the 4th quarter is nothing like the 2nd.... we need points yes, but in that case, we needed to throw, and WE HAD NO MENDY OPTION.

We got another hold, I am amazed. Now also notice Ike did not unload on Gradkowski which technically enabled him to get the first down before the holding call. He should have killed Grad.

Our pass D over 10 yards is like garbage.

Raiders getting too cute and they make a dumb mistake. Did any of the OCs on either side ever see a real football game?

All the Raiders need to do is make a pocket for 3.5 seconds and throw 10 yards into our open zone. they will move the ball. No magic or tricks needed.

All we need to do is hand the ball to Mendy and FWP. Also throw in the flat to open the running game and we win. Nothing special or flashy.

Why do the morons have a need to complicat everything?

OK, Steelers with the ball.

So, if what I'm reading here is correct, we should run the ball if it works, but pass the ball if it doesn't? And pass the ball if it works (like it did on the TD drive), but NOT pass the ball if the run works (like it did on Mendy's long run, the one where we ran 4 more times and turned the ball over on downs)?

basically we should do whatever works...and avoid things that we'll know in the future DON'T work.

So I was right?

We NOW know the plays didn't work, so we just......ah.......need to go back in time and fix them?

At least you acknowledged that Ben has some culpability.

What I'm seeing today is a solid running game that has been slowed a couple times. A QB that isn't getting enough time to hit his WR's running wide open. Lot's of poor execution on both sides of the ball.

Kellen Moore of Boise has 3 ints in 400+ throws.. so therefor he > Taylor

no. becuase tyrod taylor has the abolity to rush for about 1000 yards which he has done with minimum interceptions.

therefore

lol your speaking our language arrogant twat. your trying to teach me something, you copied off rugby league lol OKAY THEN.

tyrod taylor 4 interceptions in 300+ throws, yes really mediocre, he's far better than michael vick, and a much better quarterback than whichever college you support.

its your language, but its our sport (and nothing like rugby)

55.9% career pass completion is terrible. And he only averages 4.3 yards per carry as a "running" college QB (a career average, this season he's down to 3.3), so he's not very good even with that as a gimmick. You're obviously not very brilliant when it comes to football.

Tim Tebow is going to make an average to poor NFL QB and he's 10x better than Tyrod Taylor

What I'm seeing today is a solid running game that has been slowed a couple times. A QB that isn't getting enough time to hit his WR's running wide open. Lot's of poor execution on both sides of the ball.



Ben threw the pick in the end zone at the end of the half. Against a better team would would be toast right now.
