    Steelers Raiders game is a MUST WIN...

    I guess we can use this as the Gameday thread for the game tomorrow. But I said it last week and I will say it again now the game with the Raiders and the game at home with the Browns next Sunday are absolute MUST win games for the Steelers if they want to still have a legit chance to get a wildcard spot. Right now the Steelers have a 1-4 conference record which is one of the worst in the AFC. They probably will at some point suffer a 5th AFC loss but it just cannot happen either tomorrow with the Raiders or next Sunday with the Browns. The Steelers need to get their record to 6-4 overall and back to 3-4 in the AFC going into their bye week two weeks from now. If you look at all the other wildcard contenders that are 3-5 or 4-4 now such as Buffalo,Miami,KC, and the Jets and Raiders their schedules moving forward are very tough so if the Steelers simply win these next two games and get to 6-4 believe me they will be in excellent shape going into December to have a chance to make the playoffs.

    This is without question the most important game of the season. A loss to the Raiders would put us 1.5 games behind them and they would own the head to head matchup. Tuitt looks like he will be back as well as Will Allen.

    Yeah, it's a must win game and there is no excuse why we shouldn't be effective big time in the red zone.

    Look on the bright side, if they do lose tomorrow we can almost start talking about the draft, looking forward to next season, and use our Sundays to catch up on the honey do list.

    And it also could mean this team is heading toward another 8-8 season which would be their 3rd in 4 years and not winning a playoff game in 5 years. And at some point that isn't going to be good enough around here. Whether Tomlin got a contract extension through 2017 or not at some point here in the next year or so he has to start winning games in January and for that matter getting to January or he really needs to start being on the hot seat.

    Not a great start dropped passes on the first series and then the Raiders get the ball back after a missed 4th down conversion and score on 3 plays.
