Still...I wonder who this will benefit more...in terms of this long delay in game? I think our D needed to do a little soul searching anyway, and maybe this will put a freeze on Carson's rhythm.

I will go on record as saying this looked like our young secondary was getting frustrated(The run game earlier on was blowing them up) and decided that blinding violence would get things going our way. That first hit that was actually Cortez Allen that got leveled. Just someone happened to poke that Raider in the eye as our guys were demolishing each other.

Then they got back up, further frustrated that they had wiped out our own Corner instead of a WR, and set out to correct the problem. IMO, they need to settle down back there.

I hope that wasn't aimed at me. If you think I enjoy seeing this sort of thing, you're very incorrect. Doesn't mean I'm not going to wonder about the game and the effects if may have on it, from a detached manner as time continued to tick.

And for the record I never saw the hit or knew any impact. I'm simply rooting for hard hits on this team.

Rooting for threatening injuries, not so much. People get knocked out cold in football, happens.

Oakland has one of the worst offenses in the NFL. That tells me the demise of our defense is pretty much complete.

10 points off turnovers. 62 yard TD run. 48-yard TD drive off a 51 yard kickoff return. Nine penalties. That's basically all Oakland has done to be tied in this game

Notice Dwyer hasn't been back in the game since the fumble. Brown has fumbled twice now. I wonder what will happen.

fortmemphis
09-23-2012, 07:41 PM
now I wonder if any of our idiot coaches might think it necessary to actually speak to the receivers and running backs and tell them NOT to go crazy going for extra yardage like Brown did?

That never should never have happened. He should have been told to go down when he was getting contact after a big gain. Coaches need to actually get creative and think AHEAD and not wait until after we have blown the whole 10 pt lead before telling the guys handling the ball to protect it with both hands and do try to do too much.

That was so stupid, idiotic.

It's not the sky is falling. It's the defense failing.

You really think Troy is going to make that much of a difference? Did you watch the Denver game? Absolutely a non-factor. So if Harrison can turn our defense around all by himself, I will more than thrilled.

we have got to have the worst offensive line. On that run play they are just standing up and watching the Raiders go right around them and penetrate.

it worked, but i hate tomlins call to go for it.

it made sense, if we kicked it away we'd have to expect our D to hold and prevent the field goal (not likely today). give em a shorter field to score and if they score it would likely leave 2+ minutes on the clock for our offense to drive for the win/tie

So I have a question for all of you, when will a Professional Sports Team from Pittsburgh win another game, in any sport? Do we have to wait for the NHL to stop their lockout.

fortmemphis
09-23-2012, 08:07 PM
for any of you who live in Pittsburgh, will the media even question Tomlin on how bad the defense played? Will they ask him about the stupidity of Antonio Brown fumbling after a big gain instead of holding the ball with 2 hands and going down? Or will the media in PIT just treat him with kid gloves and ask him softball questions?

Tomlin's coaching staff needs to be held accountable for having a game won and literally giving it away

AndyWitmyer
09-23-2012, 08:07 PM
Well, now we just have to hope for the Ravens to lose.

I'm not going to blame the refs, because we do have to win REGARDLESS - but we were penalized 12 times, I believe - for about 90 yards or so, which is almost a full field. We had a flag that took 7 points away from us in a return. The officiating was piss poor and didn't help.

The offense played mostly an A game - until the 4th.
The defefense needs to do a lot of soul searching over the bye.

This is going to be a loooooong bye week.

SteelCurtain5643

Honestly has the game passed Lebeau by? He is an institution I know. But his defense cant rush the passer. They cant tackle most of the time, His secondary gets toasted regularly and they gave up 34 pts to the worst offensive team in the league.

Could it be time to find some new defensive leadership? I know it wont happen mid season but seriously. Tomlin went for a 4 down with 4 mins left in the game on his own 20 yard line. HE HAD NO CONFIDENCE IN THE D. Embarassing

I can hear Tomlin's press conference now: "We didn't make enough significant plays, we take ownership of what we put on tape, blah blah blah" How about we always play down to our competition and we do whatever we need to to keep bad teams hanging around until they beat us"

Our historical record against the Raiders in their stadium is now 10 wins and 10 losses. I don't know what it is about that place, but we seem to have a 50% of sucking whenever we step foot inside of there.

The thing is - everyone's calling the Raiders a lousy team. Their record doesn't necessary show how good that team actually is - the Raiders have upgrades which, as I said earlier, may end up giving them a chance at being a legitimate team as the season progresses. Carson seemed to be very much at ease with his offense.

We lost to a team that just played better when it mattered. It's not the end of the world.

No running game, OLD defense (Players getting hurt), 3 games into the season and already Polamalu is out, aged linemen. OMG..Im worried about more than just this season...

The Raiders are as bad as everyone thinks. Face it our D is horrible at best. The coaches decision to sit Troy and Harrison thinking this was going to be a cakewalk backfired on them. It's unfortunate that with those two players out this Defense is HORRIBLE, not one leader on that whole side of the ball.

Our defense, as usual, underperformed. Penalties, sloppy play, and an overall disrespect for a future HOF'ers arm cost us this game. And that can rest squarely on the shoulders of a 3rd string defense, Ike Taylor, and the coaching staff.

Horrific to say the least, embarrassing at best, and this is going to be a long season. I'm prepared for it after this weeks loss however. I know whats coming.

Well at least we know we're not going to loose next week! This is going to be the longest two weeks.

we beat outselves, plain and simple. this makes me want to vomit like the last time we played at oakland.

we hold on to the damn ball, we win the game. instead, despite outplaying the raiders by a big margin, we make enough mistakes to give them hope and eventually lose.

this is the worst kind of loss where you know you should have won, but just didn't.

Palmer is not in any way, shape or form a Hall of Fame QB. He is a shadow of his former self and should have had the crap knocked out of him today. Shame, shame, shame defense. You make me want to puke.

Based on how we made him look tonight, of course he is. Couldn't you tell? I mean only a future HOF'er could shred a top end secondary like the Steelers right???

Okay, I had to work, but followed this loosely on my phone.

I don't feel like reading through 67 pages of comments.

Can someone give me a non-emotional analysis of how/why Burgh lost today?

I saw that Hood jumped off sides to give the Raiders a new set of downs which led to a TD... was that as bad as I read it?

Despite dismal running again, Big Ben is airing it out and I saw some 'no huddle' in the play-by-play... what was the O's problem(s)?

What were the problems with the D breakdowns on the Raiders final drive and when Run DMC had that 60+ yd TD run?

Chalk this one up to coast-to-coast road travel, or...?

I respect Coach LeBeau to the extreme upmost..but before my fellow Steeler Nation jumps on me..

Either light a blowtorch under their behinds and get the secondary to step up, or respectfully retire...
This game was as humiliating as any loss to the Ratbirds or to the Cheatriots..

he was drawn offsides by multiple flinches & movement by the o-line before the snap. exact same thing happened in pats vs balt and the refs got it right calling a false start.

Despite dismal running again, Big Ben is airing it out and I saw some 'no huddle' in the play-by-play... what was the O's problem(s)?

fumbles lost by brown, wallace, and dwyer led to 14 raiders points.

What were the problems with the D breakdowns on the Raiders final drive and when Run DMC had that 60+ yd TD run?defense played like they were dejected and shocked the raiders even bothered to show up. on the first raider run of the game the o-line opened a huge hole and ryan mundy was caught flat footed as the last line of defense and watched as mcfadden ran right on by.

Chalk this one up to coast-to-coast road travel, or...? maybe the humidity from the ocean made the ball slick? :noidea: offense showed up but abandoned the run. even baron batch was getting carries so they were looking to find something... ANYTHING.

Thanks, Tony!

Tough to lose one like this, but if history is any indication it will be an aberation.

Rest up for Philly and force some Vick TO's!
