The Terrible Podcast – Steelers Raiders Game Recap Episode

Steelers PodcastSeason 3, Episode 20 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd I get right into talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-31 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. It is never fun talking about a loss, but we go through the entire game and point out what looked good and what looked bad.

The Steelers special teams really had their hand in the loss and the penalties also made things tough in addition. Outside of the long touchdown run by running back Darren McFadden, the Steelers defense had a pretty decent first half. We manage to crack a few skulls just the same as Brett Keisel and Ryan Mundy had big roles in the first half touchdowns. Ben Roethlisberger did not open the game up too sharp, but quickly corrected that. The Steelers still managed to have the lead at the half and David and I were still pretty confident things were going to go the Steelers way.

Of course the second half was a different story and we go through it drive by drive. We wrap up the show with a few extra talking points.

    Many are identifying “lack of pressure” as the biggest problem for this defense. I think there is more at play here. I was disturbed to read the same kind of comments from a Raiders player as we heard from a Denver player after the first game: “Raiders wide receiver Derek Hagan thinks it was a major advantage that
    quarterback Carson Palmer has opposed Steelers defensive coordinator
    Dick LeBeau so often; Palmer is 5-8 against Pittsburgh. “He knows what
    they were going to do,” Hagan said. “They pretty much did the same thing
    that they did six, seven years ago.” Maybe part of the problem is that a defense that depends on disguise and causing confusion has become too predictable. According to another Tribune article, Palmer called audibles on 11 of 57 plays because he recognized what the Steelers were doing on defense, and those 11 plays accounted for 147 of the Raiders’ 321 yards.

    You guys talk a lot about Timmons over-shooting tackles. Polamalu has also done the same thing many times. Just something to think about. Both play too hard at times, but I like both of them to show up in the end.
