Instead of unleashing hell , the Steelers laid an egg against a hapless Raider team.
I'm not sure what's more embarassing. Losing to the Raiders or allowing Bruce Gradkowski to throw for 300+ yards to receivers named Louis Murphy and Chaz Schillins. Either way it's not good. The Raiders had 10 total offensive touchdowns this year. They scored three on their last three drives today.
The defense continued to write the story of the 2009 Steelers - defensive collapses. I don't even know what to think after watching the Raiders drive 90 yards in less than 2 minutes. Most of the passes were just thrown straight up into the air and the defensive backs were unable to bat the ball down.
Even though Steeler nation likes to spew hatred toward Bruce Arians, all the vigor this season should be directed at Coach Tomlin, Dick Lebeau, and the defense.
But at least Gary Russell didn't hurt us on kick off returns.
I'm not one for hyperbole, but if you think a Steeler team that has lost four straight, with two against the Chiefs and Raiders, can run the table to make the playoffs, you might be nuttier than Al Davis.
End of Tomlin Thursday.
If you really want to get mad, Kansas City has lost by more than 60 in its last two weeks.
Maybe we'll get 2 minutes of hate from Alex tomorrow. Maybe not.
End of post.
