    I am hoping we fix this versus the the Steelers.

    That said incredible win, and man when our offence is clicking it is clicking. Say what you want about Cam, but he called a hell of a game today. Hopefully we can take this show on the road.
    Allowing 20 points and over 300 passing yards to Palmer is not the kind of defense I want to be seeing.

    check their other games this year, they've been scoring a lot of points. Of course the loss of their two running backs was part of the lower scoring today plus being in the hole so early took them out of their gameplan

    I actually thought the D wasn't too bad today. DeAngelo Tyson, I don't care that he's a 7th round rookie, he really showed something today. This isn't a dominant defense by any means, but if they can make key stops at times and keep getting more and more out of this young bunch, I think we'll be OK as long as the offense fares well. Now if the offense "klunks" and fails to put up more than 20, I think we're in trouble, but we've found ways to win games. We didn't have Ngata and Jimmy Smith today which are big losses for certain. I still believe this unit has to brush up on the missed tackles, but if they can be tough and stingy at key times and not allow an abundance of points to be put up on them, I like our chances of winning as a team.

    I do worry about Ed though. I hope he can hold up down the stretch. When you're talking about a gutsy gambler like Ed, the TD to Denarius Moore can happen. The missed tackle on Heyward-Bey though, was obviously not a good thing. Ihedigbo played decently when he was out, but I'd still like to have Ed out there, even if he is banged up. I just hope his injuries don't REALLY end up costing us on the field at the wrong time.

    Honestly, the game in Pitt should be close. Ben may sit back there and have his way a little bit, but if they don't have Brown, that should help a little bit. Hopefully Haloti and Jimmy can work there way in next week as well as Pernell McPhee. We need to keep getting production out of this unit. I believe Suggs, Kruger, Upshaw, and McClellan will have some shots at Ben next week. My biggest hope is that we can just keep them off the scoreboard as much as possible. Hold them to FG's and force a couple turnovers. The offense will need to play well against what looks to be a bit of a resurgent Steeler defense. I personally feel Joe has a good grasp of their defense. I think we should certainly use Ray throughout the game and just be, BALANCED. Anquan usually shines in these match ups do to his physicality. I expect it to be a tough, hard fought, AFCN battle and it will most likely come down to the final minute.

    I don't think fans fully appreciate how talented Oakland's pass offense is. DHB is a legit talent and Denarius Moore has already established himself as one of the better receivers in the AFC. Brandon Myers is also no slouch at the TE position. Palmer came into this game averaging 318.5 yards passing in his last four outings.

    As others have pointed out, two of those TDs were pretty simple broken plays. It's not as if Oakland moved the ball up and down the field on the D. This was probably the best performance the D has put together in a little while. I give them more credit because again, Oakland really has an underrated passing attack.

    The defense as a whole is a huge concern. But today was definitely a step in the right direction and good preparation for the Steelers' passing attack.

    It did appear that they were able to generate more pressure on the QB. They were creative as well, even lining up without a down lineman, using inside and outside linebackers. Good for Pees.

    There is another theory which states that this - has - already - happened…

    I didn't think the D was that bad. They had one really blown play that cost them and that was the Moore TD. The DHB TD was just poor tackling, which is fixable. They were better today than they were all season.

    The D looked better without Ngata (who's been hurt) and Jimmy (who bites on every double move) and McPhee (who's been disappointing).
    We should stick with this line up and let those 3 heal up.

    Agree with this. I thought the defense played very well today. Not up to traditional ravens level but good enough when your offense drops 55.

    The defense was solid, save for a few blown coverages. Palmer put up yards because they couldn't run, and because they were playing from behind the entire game.

    I thought the defense played well except for the 2 TDS which accounted for about 100 yards and the entire 2nd half we were in the prevent

    Agree. I thought the D played well. The 2 TD's were on Ed, the second one I would say he was peaking in the back field trying to make a play as most of the team was looking for big plays in a prevent because the game was already over. You have to except that when the team is up by 21 Ed is going to be Ed. No excuse for the missed tackle, but the up the seam, Ed jumped the route and Palmer looked him off. Does still seem to be some communication issues in the secondary at times.
