The Tentatively Titled: Mere Learning Experience on the Road Back to Relevance or WAAAAH!! I Wish We Had Vick!!


So what can be made of yesterday's "performance" or better yet lack thereof?  I thought I recognized those guys getting pummeled by the Steelers on Sunday.  We hadn't seen this team in a long time.  At the very least the SF game was close.  The game I saw on Sunday was the worst I have seen this team perform since Tom Cable's debut against NO 34-3.  I had the good fortune of not watching the Jets or Giants games last year. 

As much as you can pin the loss on Campbell, all the Raiders' leaders had a hand in this loss.  None of them showed up.  None of the coaching staff made any adjustments to what the Steelers were doing.  The Patriots just LAST FUCKING WEEK showed how to set up the run with the pass by spreading out the Steelers and was able to manufacture 3 offensive TDs and 4 FGs.  Oakland in the 3rd Qtr was still running I-formation with 2 TE sets trying to get McFadden going.  The defense rarely blitzed and when the DBs had a chance to tackle the Steelers' fleet-footed receivers they looked like they were afraid of getting their white visiting jerseys dirty.  All of the team leaders failed as well.  From Campbell looking like a deer about to get crushed by oncoming traffic to Dick looking the part by giving up and getting himself ejected so he doesn't have to be on the field with the rest of the team while they took their ass-kicking.  This loss is on everyone from the owner all the way down to the ball boys.  This team looked afraid of contending with the big boys and the final score showed it.  The Flipper game has become a must-win and if this team comes out scared again against a well-coached team they should stop wearing silver and black to change their colors to yellow and cremesicle.
