    True. Against most defenses in the NFL you're not going to get anywhere close to the time that Flacco got today. On the first of those long TD passes Ray Rice made one of the great blitz pickups I'd every seen. Against a Woodley or Harrison it's not going to be Rice pancaking a blitzer. You can't take away anything from this game because it was at home against crap defense. There just aren't too many others as bad as the Raiders.

    Thank you. I'm not minimizing a victory, this is what should happen against a team like this. Now, we go into Pittsburgh and come out with a victory of any kind and give teeth to this victory.

    What do you mean by "this offense"? I think they do run this offense at home and on the road. The difference today was that Joe had all kinds of time to throw the ball. The receivers got separation. Oakland made many mistakes in coverage. The running game was effective enough to make the play action work.

    So in summary, the offense hasn't changed at all. When the players execute it works well, when they don't it can look pretty bad. And it really works well when your opponnent sucks.

    I don't know if screens are going to work against the Steelers. Running screens against the Steelers is almost disrespectful. Screens haven't worked on them in years.

    The running game was almost totally ineffective... we only really ran the ball well on draws out of the shotgun. So, I don't really buy into that... but obviously play action WAS working and there were plenty of plays available downfield, so maybe the Raiders were just selling out to stop the run.

    The Raiders are a very bad team defensively, so I agree that the offense was more affected by playing a bad opponent than anything else.

    Agreed but throwing one or two in there to Rice is not a horrible option.

    Slants on the other hand can be effective against them. Would like to see them get the ball in Jones and Smith's hands a few times via this method and see what they can do with it .

    Here's a theory for you: At home the OL moves at the sound of Flacco's call & keeps its heads up & aware, whereas the opposing defense moves when they see the ball snapped. On the road the OL moves when they see Birk snap the ball, which means they're looking down the line & moving (at best) at the same time as the players they need to block or separate from. The half-second differential turns a top-5 offense into a clusterfuck. How do you address that? No idea.
