Steelers can't beat the Raiders! Big Ben's mind is on that rape charge that wont seem to go away! Prosecution = institution!! Maybe he can room with Plaxico!!

The RAIDERS RAIDED Hines field with cutting torches and TORCHED the steel curtain down to the end.
2-1 with Gradkowski starting
1-0 with Butterfingers Heyward-Bey on the bench and the best passing/receiving performance all season by the Raiders. Wins were over potential AFC North champion Cincinnati and defending superbowl champion Pittsburgh, so we might be on to something here. This win over the steelers better remind Al Davis why John Madden always told receivers "If you can't catch the football, I'll find somebody that can." If Madden was still coaching, BHB would not have gotten as much playing time as he's gotten.

Loki....you are Pathetic.....you can't accept the Raiders are improving.....You said we would get killed by the Eagles...you said we would get killed by the Bengals....and the Steelers...now it's the skins.....we have flopped after wins...but that team that played the Steelers isn't the same team(attitude wise) that we have watched all season.....this game could go either way....thats why it call a game,

hey bulldog3 thanks for congratulating us in the win. i respect that. i don;t mind the sh.t talkin' before the game, cause that is what makes the game fun.i know you felt RAIDERS did not have it in them to win the game. that is why it was an upset. the superbowl champs were uposed to win this game and could have! there was just alot going on with gradkowski being from pittsburgh and his family being there and him getting the starting position for RAIDERS.(cb) palomalu, or however you spell his name? was also a big factor for the steeler loss that i felt made a difference in the game. whatever it was, i'm glad we won. look at the bright side bulldog3. it just made the rivalry that much better next time we meet.(LOL)
GO RAIDERS!!!
