OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- As putrid as the Oakland Raiders were to start the season, they're now at least as good -- or is it bad? -- as the Super Bowl champs.

Chris Carr returned an interception by Ben Roethlisberger 100 yards for a touchdown, Nnamdi Asomugha also took back an interception for a score and the Raiders mounted a late goal-line stand to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-13 Sunday.

I could be in a serious funk over these Steeler losses, if I really cared.

Only the gamblers are making out on the Steeler games, methinks. Ben may not see a third season with us if he continues to play so erratically.

Roth has had a rough six months, and that's after getting some awfully good breaks during his first two years in the league. Right now, he's like a boxer who's been knocked down for the first time. Young men tend to think they're invincible, and the motorcycle wreck, the surgery and getting knocked out told him firmly he's human. Cowher, IMHO, should sit him for a while and let him recover.

Batch is their backup, and he's very capable. Roth's career is at a crisis point, and he could lose it all here. I heard reports that he was hearing voices after the concussion. It would be a shame for him to end up like Jerry Quarry.

And I say that as someone who does not like the Steelers. I just hate to see a guy get physically destroyed.

The two worst sport-fan-types in the world are those who (a) talk trash and (b) those who live to route against a team.

You are both.

You are the skunk at the lawn party, the ants at the picnic. You are the diarrhea on the cruise ship.

You are crap.




How much did you lose on the Steelers last winter? If it's more than ten grand, you won't answer at all.

Did you think that up all by yourself?

I'm guessing the folks in your trailer park helped you with that.
