Yeah I know they're much improved but the fact of the matter is that they're still average, and jason campbell is crap

Depends how they beat us. Through the air, not only is it sad, the team is in a lot of trouble. But if they beat us through the ground, not only does that say our defense is overrated, but its old and slow, and thats more trouble.
But I really think this defense can kill Campbell and stop the dominant running game. It depends on what happens on offense. This is a strong Raiders defense, it could easily score points if Ben makes mistakes.

I know it's a little early to say this, but it seems like a cross roads. Can we play up to our potential? Every team has injuries and can adjust to them. It's obvious teams aren't going to lay down to us. If we get a lead can we put them away?

It doens't matter how good or bad. We seem to play down to any level.

I think Jason Campbell sucks and should be made to look like Vince Young.

This week is a test of Tomlin no matter how much the media adores him. They better win hard and crush Oakland in Q4 where the legacy of Tomlin is melt down

This game can only be a turning point if we lose. If we win it's because we're supposed to, which still says something. If we were to lose this game though, that would be a bad sign of things to come I'm afraid. Oakland is improved, no question about that, but we if we can't take care of business at Heinz then that will indeed speak volumes about the state of this team.
