First of all, I believe we have to win 9 of the next 10 games and we can't lose to an AFC team. If we do that, then are chances of making the playoffs will be minimized based on head to head, division, and conference wins (all tie breakers when the records are even).

Second, we can not begin to play the "WHAT IF" game with any team on our schedule. We do have to take this one week at a time and work on eliminating turnovers and stupid idiotic bunglish celebration penalties.

Finally, this game on Sunday needs to be a straight up arse whoopin' on the raiders. They have hope now, they've won a game. Our job on Sunday is to put out the lights!!!

We need to get up on them fast and hard, not give them a glimmer of hope.

We are every team's Super Bowl this year. I wouldn't take the Raiders or anyone else for that matter lightly. The Raiders will come to play on Sunday. We need to be ready week in and week out for these challenges.

I dont think i'll be starting LaMont Jordan in my FF - something tells me he will be in for a statistically insignificant day (even if he is fit).

I wonder if Steeler nation will be able to keep its head if the Steelers roll out the expected ass-whupping?

Or will we get proclamations that the Steelers can do the same to Cincy when they meet.

I was thinking about this over the weekend even prior to Sunday's game, and I would have to disagree with you. In the AFC, I seriously doubt that a 10-6 record will get a team into the playoffs. In the NFC sure, but not the AFC. Remember, the Steelers finished at 11-5 last year and lost the division title to Cincy only due to the tie-breaker, and that just barely put them in the playoffs as the 6th seed.

Despite the fact that it's only week 8, the Steelers need to dial up the intesity from here on out and play with a decided sense of urgency. The way I see it, every game should now be viewed as an absolute must win.

Personally, I think ANY loss from here on out could be potentially devastating. The Steelers just cannot afford to take any team lightly at this point.

I would love nothing more than to see Weird Al leaving his cushy owner's box with a huge skid mark in the back of that ancient white polyester leisure suit.

I dont like the scenario going into Oakland. Raiders at home coming off their first win and the Steelers coming in licking their wounds with their pride tinged. I dont want to make a huge statement about it being a must win for the playoffs, etc. but this is a game that will be a litmus test for their heart, passion and pride as World Champs. This is one of those games the so called experts will say the Steelers are "supposed" to win. Yeah, their supposed to win every game as defending champs right? It is time for the rookies to shake off the nerves, field some footballs and make plays, period. I love the Steelers, always have and always will but this season has given me more angst and confusion than any that I remember in recent history.

And I have to agree with other posts about Cowher. He does not have the fire he had since he has been the HC. This season is almost like a Twilight Zone episode to me.

Anyway, my roommate is a Raider fan so this Sunday will be interesting.

Wink Re: The raider game

First of all ... if we lose to the Lowly Raiders... well.. our season is definitely over and we should play for the first over all pick in the draft.. I dont think that it is Cowhers fault with what is happening with our team right now. We are turning the ball over WAY TOO MUCH... for the last few years we have NOT done that and we won alot of games... now that Ben has gotten his rythm back he has to go and get this concussion which may set him back a little bit more as well... Our season is pretty much in jeopardy right now, though I am not giving up on us at this point. But it would be hard on us to get 8 more wins to get into the playoffs now... But I Still Love My Black N Gold...
