Found September 25, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
The final score was 31-34 in Oakland, which is a place the Pittsburgh Steelers generally play poorly. However, if the Steelers were going to lose in Oakland most would have expected an offense that couldn’t move the ball while giving up touchdowns on special teams and turnovers. While there were turnovers and special teams were leaky, that wasn’t why the Steelers lost the game. The Steelers lost the game because they got beaten by a team that was better yesterday. Over the course of 10 games the Steelers would likely go 8-2 against a team like the Raiders. However, yesterday happened to fall onto the “2” side of that record for one day.… Read more

Warning: Beware Of Fake Story Claiming Ben Roethlisberger Broke Both Legs In Accident

Be warned that there is a fake story making the rounds on the internet that states Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger broke both his legs in a car accident on Wednesday. The story is posted on a fake story generator website. I refuse to link to the site, as it would only bring them undeserved traffic. It is unfortunate that fake stories like this grow legs, and...

Ben Roethlisberger playing at an elite level early in the season

Through three weeks of the NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have seen lofty expectations shattered, but even loftier expectations start to come to fruition. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is playing at a level that puts him atop the NFL’s list of passers. Now, I’m of the school of thought that says that it’s never too early to make predictions and end up eating...

Report: Roethlisberger & Haley Had First “Incident” In Season Opener

We apparently have already had our first in-game "incident" between Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and new offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Sunday morning that Roethlisberger and Haley had a disagreement during the Steelers opening Sunday night loss to the Denver Broncos, but that the quarterback says...

As Steelers struggle, Roethlisberger shines

Don't blame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for Pittsburgh's slow start. Roethlisberger has been nearly unstoppable during the first three weeks of the season, averaging over 300 yards a game and throwing eight touchdowns against just one interception. He's currently second in the NFL in quarterback rating and has proven to be a quick study of offensive coordinator Todd...

Big Ben: No issues with Todd Haley

After originally saying that he and Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley had "one little incident," Ben Roethlisberger later said the issue was blown out of proportion.

Steelers collapse in Oakland, lose 34-31

I missed the first 3 quarters of this one, but it sounds like every Steelers/Raiders game from the past few years. The Steelers jumped out to a 24-14 lead in the 3rd quarter on a Mike Wallace touchdown catch, but the defense squandered the lead in a 2nd half where Oakland scored every time they saw the ball. Sebastian Janikowski booted a 44 yard field goal as time expired to complete...

Onward Steelers; It’s Time to Accept This is a Passing Offense

If you haven’t come to the realization that the Pittsburgh Steelers are a pass-first team then perhaps you’ve been watching re-runs of the Seventies’ Steelers. Art Rooney II can say Ben Roethlisberger needs to ‘tweak his game’ all he wants to but I didn’t see anything that needed tweaking yesterday in the 34-31 loss to Oakland. You want to do some tweaking Mr. Rooney...

Hritz: Steelers Versus Raiders Preview & Prediction

By Jeremy Hritz Week three is here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are making the trip to Oakland to take on the 0-2 Oakland Raiders. While it appears that this is an easy victory with all of the injuries in the Raiders secondary, there are no such things as gimme in the NFL. The last time the Steelers played in Oakland in 2006, Ben Roethlisberger played a horrific game, throwing two...

Steelers Offensive Line Breakdown – Oakland Raiders – Week 3

Below is the week 3 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Oakland Raiders. Before we get to the grades, it should be noted that the pass protection as a whole in this game was excellent. Part of that stems from the concerted effort to focus on a shorter passing game and get the ball out the hand of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That being said, there...

Steelers Raiders Week 3 Offensive Participation Chart

Below are the offensive player play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. Player Notes: Running back Jonathan Dwyer never saw the field after his fumble and played all of 8 snaps in the game as a result. Baron Batch saw 27 snaps, a season high for him. Despite bad ribs, tight end Heath Miller played every snap. Rookie...

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

I'm struggling with trying to come up with a way to sum up this game. I mean Ben and the passing game played their hearts out, and without some mindboggling fumbles by Dwyer and Antonio Brown, or if AB's punt return TD doesn't get called back, then we have a Steelers blowout and there's nonstop positivity heading in to the bye week. Didn't happen. 34-31 Raiders...
