That second one was horrifying. It also had the stench of showboating on it. We didn't need an extra 2 yards THAT bad.

Antonio Brown had some bad fumbles, but there's no way that Raiders offense should have put up 30+ points on us in the first place. The defense is abysmal this year and it's not just the absence of Harrison and Polamalu.

Ben had 384 yds and 4TD's....anybody that blames the offense is a complete idiot


LeBeau's dogshit pass defense has to go - I'd start cutting tomorrow

Oakland had 3 DB's off the waiver wire starting that weren't even on the team 2 weeks ago and they played better than our worthless bums - we can do just as well....cut every last one of these new Young Gun DB's and get on the damn phone and go get some cast-offs - pronto - maybe another D coordinator around the league has actually taught somebody how to play defense.

Carson ****ing Palmer?

are you kidding me?

Dwyer deserves more blame than brown, he coughed it up in Steelers territory for a gimmie score. And unlike brown, didn't do much

When your offense puts 31 points on the board you should win. Certainly the turnovers hurt, but a good d finds a way to overcome them. The d is looking very ordinary. The pass rush has been non exsistent for a few years now. And other than Troy there are no playmakers on the d. And even he hasn't been doing it much as of late. I personally would like to see more of the scheme that was used against the patriots last year. Also, everytime I see Woodley and Harrison (when he is playing) drop into coverage it makes me crazy.

Roger Goodell...those refs were not calling anything against oakland in the first half, and only called the ones they did in the second half to keep Vegas from sending a couple of messengers.

I've been saying for all of Tomlin's tenure that we were squandering our opportunity by counting on defense to win games year in and year out, because you can't always have defense like that. I have zero confidence in Tomlin to really do what it takes to win. He is a Gruden protege.

No disrespect darkstorm, but to mention showboating just doesn't make sense. Anytime a player is running in the open field the possibility of having the ball knocked out is there. Had he broken away and scored everyone would be singing his praises. I have no problem with Antonio Brown.
