You guys are a class bunch. I typically go to opposing teams forums the week before gametime to see what`s up and sometimes I chip in a bit. Most of what I`ve seen here is good, educated football talk and I salute you all. Todays game was a disappointment for me not because we lost, but I thought our Oline was better than what showed today. I also thought our Dline should have taken more advantage of your injured Oline and pressured Ben much more. Neither was the case today. The Raiders were schooled big time. Why run McFadden up the middle and not on the outside? Ouch, tough loss. Just hope we come out pissed at the fins next week at home.

Anyway, you`all have a great team and good luck to you. Take care, JW:drink:

thanks for the kind words. We are definitely a fair bunch (obviously today even though we won big we had to deal with some of, if not, the worst officiating in the history of the game...)
I was thinking the game would be much closer today.
I was also surprised that even though we are known to stop the run, that McFadden only had 10 carries.

My oldest son is in college down in SoCal and he is a Steelers fan. We texted back and forth today and most of my texts were, "That was a horrible call against you guys".

I agree, horrible calls against you guys. At the same time, I was yelling, "holding" on many plays as well when big Ben had 20 minutes to throw......lol. But there was no doubt, the Steelers were the dominate team today. We were outcoached, outclassed and the Raiders left their intensity that they had against the Broncos, Chiefs and Seahawks at home. Maybe it was the bye......we are 0-8 after a bye.....WTF????

thanks for registering to offer a very classy post aftersuch a tough loss for you guys. :cheers:

no gloating here on my part. i think i speak for many steelerfans in saying we are more livid at the officiating, than happy about what should be a great win.

todays game leaves a bad taste in the mouth of many.

Honestly, I was shocked at what when down on line of scrimmage today. I thought the same as you about the Steelers pass rush and their personnel issues on their o-line.

Heh this is true, remember guys before the 2001 AFC championship game, this was the team that got screwed by Brady and the "tuck rule" so they were probably cursing his name before we were. Can't stand Brady. Hate how he whines whenever something doesn't go his way. That and the fact he looks like Bieber haha.

I`m old enough to remember the tuck game. Earlier that year, the Raiders beat Pitts but it was not to be that we replay again.....(that year) lol

Nice to see/read a post from another team's fan.....game was old school ...Steelers/Raiders football....the Officials should've let them play.....too many nonsense penalties called....but you see how much better the Raiders have become.....best of luck the rest of the season to the Raiders....maybe we'll meet again later in the year........... :drink:
