Pretty sure it's Jonzr's alter ego...or one of his 7 personalities.

The other admins had a meeting and determined it didn't meet the standards for quality we expect.

Hoping that the difference between Hairyarms and Haley is that Haley will actually exploit the Raiders' issues in the secondary.

Good find.

I read something this week that Sabol was the one that wrote the dialogue for the highlights, including that specific piece.  Also won 35 emmy's in several different categories.  Pretty talented guy.

Steelers 31 Raiders 10

IMO, no way Pittsburgh wins in a blowout...in a game that they're supposed to blow out the other team.

Pittsburgh hasn't exactly been stellar against the run.  Could see McFadden having a decent day.  And, Oakland's pass defense isn't bad, it's their rushing defense that's been horrid.  Unfortunately, despite some hard runs late last week, Pittsburgh's rushing attack has been pretty bad.  Their success has come from Roethlisberger's arm. 

Nailbiter.

23-20.

IMO, only thing that could turn this into a snoozer is if Carson Daly decides to throw something like 3 INTs or worse.

Well, that last replay makes it iffy.  Since it was ruled incomplete, there's probably not enough to overturn.  Damn it.

I'm getting a bad feeling. Refs suck ass, should be 14 to nothing. Huge no call on a hold on the DMac TD run...Ike was trying to make it obvious, still no zebra saw it. Hate the "follow through" rule for a catch...Heath couldn't have done it any better. Too many penalties for us (AB TD call back was devastating)...My fantasy teams have shit the bed...A loss to Oakland could really push me over the top..AND I'm passing a Gaddam Gallstone on top of it all. Going back to bed.

That Raiders defense is awful.  Or the Steelers offense is fanfuckingtastic.  Maybe both.

Wow, they dodged a bullet on that kickoff, that dude totally whiffed.  Steelers ball.  Seabass hit it perfectly.

What a whacky game...Hopefully DHB makes a full recovery...not sure Mundy had much choice on that hit. Looked like he was hawking the ball until the last second, looked up and went into self preservation mode. I didn't think this was going to be such a close game. The worst part about passing gallstones is the never ending feeling like you have to take a burning shit, but can't. I've passed 2 in the last month...may have to get the gallbladder removed...

FUCK. AB Fumbles...

Fuckin' penalties...Are we the new Raiders? Jesus, Tomlin better tighten this shit up, and Dick better get get the defense to create a TO once in awhile...

Meanwhile, Wallace fumbles and thankfully recovers...way to protect the rock WR's.

No confidence in our D? 4th and 1 on our own 26 and we go for it, with over 3 minutes left? Crazy call, IMO. But we got the first...may not help as BB promptly takes a 5 yard sack...

Mundy is a worthless piece of shit.

This OL couldn't run block a decent college team.

Really missing Troy and Harrison. Shouldn't have won this game by 21 points. Better come out of the bye fired up.

Curious I don't remember seeing AB dancing around making a spectacle of himself after coughing up the ball for the second time today...

Ziggy down and it looks bad. What a shitty day all the way around.


Janikowski could still miss, I guess...  Fuck!

Winnable game we let slip away.  Offense was rolling all day, but too many mistakes.  And when we needed it most, their D was able to step up...unlike ours.

Thankful for the bye now...need Troy and James back obviously.

Maybe Mendenhall more valuable than we (I) figured - Redman is struggling in feature role.  Our Oline isn't helping, but I think Mendy gets more out of it.

Road loss, out of division - we are 0-2 out west - not end of the world.  Although the fact that those 2 teams are 0-4 against other teams makes that ring a little hollow.

even if mendenhall wasn't a world-class dancer, I don't think he would be effective behind this garbage OL. Also, re the out of div losses, unfortunately they're afc losses. If we are lucky enough to tie a team for.a playoff spot, we will likely get killed in the tiebreakers.

To recap.

These are Road Warriors. The Steelers defense - not so much.
Half of the guys below are dead. Steelers defense - about 74% dead.

When Larry Foote is one of the biggest defensive surprises of the season, I'd say that number might be closer to 90%.
