As a Steelers fan living amongst Raiders fan, just glad my day didn't involve being burned by a power line.

So in Denver and Oakland the defense didn't stop the other team at all in the seconf half. Gave points on every single drive. Horrible.

What is there to like about this team other than the QB and the receiving corp? Mediocre, middle of the pack 9-7 at best.

Yep, this is pretty much where I'm at. Out of the people playing yesterday, who would really qualify as a high-level player that you're really excited to have on your team outside of Ben, Brown, and Wallace? Probably Miller and Pouncey, maybe Woodley. That's about it. The rest of the team ranges from mediocre to bad.

It's unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected. I had high hopes for this year based on what I thought would be improved play from both lines and the secondary (areas that got a lot of hype for being improved during training camp), but realistically this team is in a re-tooling phase.

To be fair, Giordano suffered some sort of leg injury on the play. He never made the cut when Wallace turned along the endline. He just sorta..... sat down. Left the field a couple minutes later, too.

If Broeth's bromance partner Arians were still around, Brown wouldn't have fumbled that ball in the 4th quarter right?

Frankly I just wish Haley and Ben would have it out on the field and just get it over with.
