At Home in Oakland

TV- CBS affiliates - Check your local listings

Will Carson Palmer find his groove and be a more consistant QB?

Will the Raiders find cornerbacks that can stop somebody?

Will RunDMC find his running game?

Will the Raiders figure out who their #1 receiver is going to be?

Let hear it!!!

Okay I'm sitting in a bar and the game isn't even on yet because of an overtime game I am recording at home so I'm heading home to watch the game there.

So,,,,,,,instead of playing defense today we are going to dazzle then with our offense?

I don't know if anyone here is old enough,,I doubt it,,to remember the immaculate reception but I do as I was a fledgling Raider fan,,,and I have hated all things Pittsburgh (well,,, Pennsylvania in general) ever since then. Visiting the NFL hall of fame 18 years ago I was 5 seconds from going toe to toe with a Pitt fan but a guard came in the room.

now that we know we can score, can we also prove we can actually stop them from scoring.

Watching the highlight replay it looks like we scored on a long run by McFadden.

Dodged a bullit with the Steelers getting two penalties on the punt return for a touchdown.

We get a fumble then mounted a drive and get stopped on the 6 yard line. A gutsy move to go for it on 4th down.

The penalty on the Steelers gave us 4th and short. We finally score in the redzone. We haven't had QB's lately that can throw the lop touch pass into the end zone.

I can't believe we let them march down the field with less than 2 mins and get a field goal before the half.

Can't pressure the QB. corners can't stop the pass What ever happened to all the talk we heard about during preseason that we were going to do a lot lf blitzing.

After looking at the half time stats we are lucky to only be down by 3.

We had dismal looking numbers. We should be down by 30.

I thought Dennis Allen was supposed to be a defensive guru. I don't see it in this defense. We are actually worse than last year. We are going to have to outscore out opponents to win.

We can't stop the pass at all. They are connecting on everything.

That was the best consistent drive we have had all season. We didn't see the stop sign when we went into the redzone.

Down by only 3 and over 6 minutes to go and we do a very foolish on side kick. Stupid, stupid, stupid. What kind of coach do we have anyway?

Need a better coach, that was the most stupid thing I have ever seen an NFL coach do. Down by 3 with 6 to go and best kicker in the NFL and they do a fake on side kick. That ended any chance of winning the game.

Don't know what coach Allen was thinking. I guess he has no confidence in our defense so he goes with the trick play to try and win a game. Gave them great field position and time to score....again.

Effing GD replacement useless effing refs. All day these a hole steelers have been pass interfering us without a call so they push and push and get away with it and now we lose a man thanks to their ineptness at keeping this in control. Thanks you effing tools.

Can you tell I am pissed

DHB eyes closed and not moving. Then he raises his thumbs up for the crowd.

After missing the obvious pass interferance call that the whole stadium saw, just not the rep refs, then they miss the helmet to helmet contact. These refs are going to get a player killed on the field. Maybe then the NFL will settle with the real refs.

Penalty on the one yard line. Another setback.

A successful redzone score. we are getting better at it. In a position to win this game. Can the defense stop them this time?

A field goal and then a stop. We get the ball and time to score a winning drive.

Best Raider win in some time. The only Raider win in some time, but the best. We'll take it.

Hope DHB is gonig to be OK. Just wait for how big the fine is going to be for the guy who hit him helmet to helmet. Just because the refs didn't call it doesn't mean the NFL won't tag that guy.

Notice we had to outscore them to win. Defense allowed 31 so we just have to score more.

KC won but SD and Denver both lost. Very good for our guys.

This game reminded me of the wya the mid 80s team played. They hung on but would get pissed at something and once that started they really turned it on. It was like a switch was turned on when Hayward-Bey went down,,a pissed off Raider team is what we need every week.

Three red zone passes for touchdowns is the biggest change so far this season. Palmer being able to finish drives and do it with the pass instead of trying to always rely on McFadden is a big deal. We need the opposing defenses to be guessing on what they have to stop. We need all of our weapons to score. 9 players caught passes yesterday.

What a game- what a great comeback by the guys. The offense was just outclassed throughout most of the game, but then Carson and the receivers started to click and gaining chunks of yardage. Janikowski- just clutch. Great to see McFadden break out as well- that's the way we need him to play. Hopefully Hayward-Bey is going to be okay. I definitely think that lit a fire and the guys played more determined.

Great win against a quality team- it's going to do wonders to the confidence.

They onside kick happened in the 3rd quarter.

EDIT: I see a few posts down that you realized it was only the 3rd quarter.... Too many beers huh????? LOL....
