End 3rd qtr: Raiders 21, Steelers 3

The Steelers controlled the ball for most of the quarter but failed to score, as Shaun Suisham missed a 32-yard field goal attempt following a 16-play drive that took 9:21 off the clock.

The Raiders are finding the going tough against a Pittsburgh defense that gave up 182 yards rushing in the first half.

    By reading the comments on here,he isn’t the only one.

  • 0ak R8rs

    We beat Pittsburgh. A team most people thought we would lose. And it’s all cowboys and megatron and Denver. As usual.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Not getting any huh?
    You’re starting to sound really desperate swabby.

    Jason Tarver can expect to hear from the NFL this week.

    The Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator was captured by FOX cameras flipping the bird to officials during the Raiders’ 21-18 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

    Tarver became agitated after Oakland cornerback Mike Jenkins was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver with 8:54 to play in the third quarter. The flag was eventually picked up, but not before Tarver went off, extending his right arm and middle finger twice while shouting some NSFW language.

    Game officials might have missed Tarver one-finger salute, but Mike Pereira didn’t. The FOX rules czar (and former NFL vice president of officiating) personally contacted the league about Tarver’s actions. We know this because Pereira wrote about it on FoxSports.com.

    “If you want to call me a whistleblower, then call me a whistleblower because I let the league office know about it,” Pereira wrote. “This kind of behavior is totally unacceptable.”

    Tarver likely would’ve found himself on the wrong end of a FedEx envelope with or without Pereira’s snitchin’. Still, let’s not take this from Mike. He seems so excited.

    good question lol

  • KoolKell

    Get a lead……….TTT’s go’s soft. No firmness.

  • turf toe

    Pittsburgh must be going nuts now. That kicker just won the Norwood Award.
    We won. I’m happy.
    i’ll just ignore that second half until…say, later tonight.

  • Raider O

    Megatron and AP are 2 of the best players in the League, if not the best. We had a chance to draft them. This hurts almost as much as the Gallery draft.

  • KoolKell

    Any lead at all and the TTT’s go soft

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jezus you are a bizarre guy

  • Raider O

    The Ohio State University.
    Go Buckeyes!!
    Damn you Mich!!

  • 0ak R8rs

    $5 four team parlay. Not exactly Stu Ungar. Haha.

  • lefty12

    That’s one way to put it.

  • plunkhead

    Buckeye U does not want him

  • raider_39

    TP needs to scrap his footages of the Bradys and Mannings from his basket of treats and put a whole lot of Rodgers plays in it. love that guys pocket awereness…

  • Morilla_00

    Good, F them and their bullsh!t call. They are lucky the picked that one up. The fine is a badge of honor for that.

  • RaiderLen

    Pereira is the worst kind of human. The holier than thou.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    LOL

  • funnyfalcon

    I’m not surprised Tarver did that. It’s the same reaction I had when that penalty was called. It was complete BS. Glad the refs picked up the flag, though. I was really surprised they got that right.

  • Papertiger

    Old pootbutt is treating his approval rating just like his Depends.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Lmao. Agreed.

  • funnyfalcon

    He wasn’t ever a head official… I guess you don’t need to be, but he gets it wrong even in the studio sometimes. Fallible is his middle name.

  • KoolKell

    There’s only 1 or 2 people in here who worry about my bowel movements

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    “The Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator was captured by FOX cameras flipping the bird to officials during the Raiders’ 21-18 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.”
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    LMFAO!
    Tarver is a natural Raider.
    Fik the world!

  • funnyfalcon

    That call deserved the middle finger.

  • KoolKell

    Get a lead and TTT’s go soft

  • Papertiger

    I didn’t know your wife posted here! Who is she, Charlie?

  • BossKnows01

    Not saying im glad we didnt draft him, I was calling for that pick or AP, just sayin, his stats would have been half of what they are, thats a fact

  • funnyfalcon

    Soft ones are usually real.

  • Papertiger

    Just like Bob Costas. Guys like that need a good old-fashioned punch in the groin!

  • R8drTahoe in SF

    Who can tell me what a TTT is? I’d like a description if at all possible.

  • KoolKell

    TTT’s gets a TD and lays down in sexual exhaustion.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Maybe. Or maybe we could have built around him. Conjecture, even educated and informed conjecture, is never fact however.

  • BossKnows01

    I can only imagine Jamarcus, captain checkdown throwing to him, maybe he would have had a 1000 yds with Carson

  • KoolKell

    TTT’s gets a TD and lays down in sexual exhaustion. His breasts soften.

  • Papertiger

    Believe me, you don’t.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Lol

  • plunkhead

    Doc rob is your proctologist?

  • 0ak R8rs

    I’m gonna assume its a reference to DA. But it’s unclear at this point.

  • R8drTahoe in SF

    The Raiders won today. EXCELLENT. It was a heart pounding anxiety filled fourth quarter though. Glad the team was able to pull it off and keep the Steelers comeback underfoot!

  • RealTruRaider

    booooooooooobs

  • R8drTahoe in SF

    Why the third T though? I don’t get it…

  • Que

    I think it about time people stop with the reggie and dennis crap. This team plays and we have a defense for once. We just beat Big Ben and we have been in every game just about. I said sometime ago, how would dennis allen do once he gets some players who can run his system! Hmm he has some defensive guys that can and look , and no pass rusher! Let reggie and dennis build. We will be back guys very soon. We will be just like b more and giants. Good organizations that have losing season one season and back the next! Go raiders continue building guys

  • Morilla_00

    Hey Einstein, DA doesn’t run the offense. Are you drunk?

  • R8drTahoe in SF

    I haven’t understood the references to DA’s boobs at all.

  • Morilla_00

    They aren’t going anywhere. Especially since the way the defense has been playing.

  • R8drTahoe in SF

    Add to the regular joy of a win the fact that it’s the first immediate-post BYE week win in ten years and I’m stoked!

  • RealTruRaider

    You shouldn’t have said that, now people will post pics of him and his tata’s
