The Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders are getting ready to square off at 4:25 p.m. ET in Week 14 https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Jerome-Bettis-Jersey , and to get a better idea of what black-and-gold fans can expect from the Raiders when they visit the black hole, I reached out to Levi Damien, editor of Sliver and Black Pride, SB Nation’s Raiders website, to get a feel for what is going on on the other side of the fence.I was able to ask him a few questions, and you can check out his answers below. The Raiders are certainly an ‘interesting’ team this year. What is the fan base’s thoughts on Jon Gruden and the direction of the team? I suppose there are some interesting things about this team. In the eye-brow-raise kind of way. Trade away the best defender in the league and then watch in wonder as the pass rush becomes historically bad and players start pleading for to be released or traded before midseason. There are, of course, a wide array of opinions about Jon Gruden and the directions of the team. Not everyone couples Gruden with their displeasure at the direction of the team. There have been some reports/rumors lately that perhaps it was Mark Davis who made the decision to trade Mack because he thought the team offered a fair offer and Mack’s agent Mel Blount Jersey , Joel Segal, balked. Gruden sure wasn’t making moves back in March and April that suggested the team was headed for another rebuild. But once Mack was traded, the rebuild was in full effect. Soon another former Reggie McKenzie top pick (Amari Cooper) was traded for a first round pick as well, removing two of the former building blocks of this team. We don’t know if Gruden has the ability to build a team up practically from scratch.A lot has gone wrong in Oakland, but what has gone right? What are some positives Steelers fans should know/be concerned about heading into Sunday’s game?The positives are Jared Cook and the cornerbacks. Other areas have had their moments, but not consistently. Derek Carr is coming off his best performance of the season against the Chiefs and their bad defense, but he hasn’t performed well against more stout defenses. The Steelers haven’t won in Oakland since 1995. What are some reasons the Raiders can pull off yet another upset?Carr will have to shake off what is sure to be another several sacks and stand tall in the pocket, when a pocket is there. That’s pretty much the key to everything for the Raiders. That may seem simplistic considering he plays the most important position in football Mike Webster Color Rush Jersey , but that’s what it comes down to. The two rookie tackles aren’t going to help him out much. He was sacked three times last week against the Chiefs, and still managed to help Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook have big days while throwing for 3 touchdowns. The defense is not going to step up and make his life easier. If the Raiders are to have a chance, it will be because they won a high scoring game. How do you think the Raiders will try and slow down the high-powered Pittsburgh offense?They aren’t getting any pressure on Roethisberger, so he will have a lot of time to find a receiver. Tahir Whitehead will probably spy Roethlisberger a good portion of the time. From there it’s the corners trying to blanket the receivers to force Roethlisberger to either leave the pocket, or give the Raiders plate tectonic speed pass rushers time to get to him to force a bad throw or something. The good news for the Pittsburgh Steelers is how they were able to get out of their physical Week 11 game vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars without any huge injuries. In fact, after the game head coach Mike Tomlin had only one name to name in regards to injuries. This would be the bad news. The injury was to outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo.Chickillo is a special teams player, and backup pass rusher, but what complicates this injury is the Steelers’ decision to go into the season with only three outside linebackers on their roster. Tomlin didn’t know the severity of the injury https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Jack-Lambert-Jersey , but said he will be evaluated leading up to the Week 12 game against the Denver Broncos.Check out the post-game press conference here:If Chickillo isn’t able to play, the team would have to make some tough decisions, considering there are no other natural 3-4 outside linebackers on the roster. Asking T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree to play 100% of snaps would be a tall task for even the best book end pass rushers; however, it doesn’t mean the Steelers don’t have options. Ola Adeniyi is currently on injured reserve, and could be brought off that list to help the team at the pass rusher position, but the Steelers would have to release someone to make room for him on the team’s roster. This could turn out to be nothing, but Chickillo’s injury will be something to keep an eye on this week considering there could be a ripple effect within the roster if he is unable to play in Week 12.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black-and-gold as they turn the page and try to win their 7th game in a row vs. the Broncos in Denver next Sunday.
