-- -- -- and -- -- -- you after the -- big win over the Steelers for CSN California dot com is your insider on the tear at them all. Let's start with. -- I was going on before this game I mean this is a day. You -- -- -- Tom Kelly -- media must win situation Raiders are going up against a rival franchise and that. People not really believing Oakland still hasn't and it hits a home game they really need to go out there who themselves you feel like they did that in this victory in itself out. Yeah I mean basically as as Dennis -- himself said it all that really matters is if you have one more point at the end of sixty minutes in the other team. And they did they had a -- more in Indy it was a game of of a lot of beds and blows in and you saw that they actually showed a lot of heart. A lot of gumption really to come back from being down by ten points. In the second half and beyond that it was a great all around -- for any raider fan so to speak with Marcus Allen being out there. In any raider fan worth his or her salt is gonna know. Of the the defense of this in between Al Davis and Marcus and in fact that he was welcome back. Just whether raider organization but by mark Davis and Mark Davis told me himself that this me meant a lot his mom. So is a lot of healing going on and in what makes that type of healing feeling better a victory over a rival franchise that you've had a lot of battles with. A lot of -- list since the seventies. I'm gonna break down at it because I kept watching it going OK at eighteen years maximum and instinct at that. And really there is too -- and even put on -- but let's act and is now he's going to -- -- -- the youngest is in the and -- and I'm just turned forty. Saturday on Sunday it's his first victory at -- it. Let's talk about. I can't get the copycat because you know you know exactly about we're gonna break it down when he gets out of action on in the neutral zone. But it kind of a little -- it reward play as well but what do you see a -- at him just taking charge at this. I think the smile he had when he was asked. Did you do that where you gonna run a play or we just trying to get them jump and he smiled and he said. We got to play definitely after they got the Steelers adjusted yet to forty year old coaches staring each other in the I'm wondering. It will whose guys are gonna blink first in the Steelers they blink first in the readers got a full set of downs and and they made it happens for a touchdown Richard Gordon with a persistent -- NFL careers so. You just saw a lot of growing moments rites of passage in this game and it's one of those things again -- when these two franchises -- up. You know there was no immaculate reception here in this game there was no Marcus -- going over the top ten -- -- up on top light the flame. It's one of those situations where only. A game between these two franchises can treat as many moments that. Andy in this game we the reader's ability to fight adversity a lot of things were going against the -- different points you start off with that -- -- -- and then all the exciting cars in his first it egos and -- he put on the dirt to combat. That's not more height and is the start of the cart in Rio public in the fourth quarter they get the ends of a lot of things happening. But what does that say about the strange changes that -- see what he does that at least you come back from it does that kind of restore faith for the fans that this team. Can battle through that as you know -- probably going to be an issue all season long. Yeah and and I think when you see the team able to come back through that be able to to fight through that type of adversity and have some success that just basically. Lets the fans know that -- they know what's gonna what's been they're never gonna really quit so to speak offensively and I asked Carson Palmer. What it was like in that huddle. As things are going on and get all the craziness going around is sold out stadium and the fans cheering you get guys are just gassed tired. -- was like in the huddle that Tom. It's calm in when you get guys come like that remind me again of another epic game between the Raiders Steelers the Bruce Gradkowski and back in 2009. And Bruce told me that -- that he had to get in Mario. Anderson's face telling stop looking at the boarding didn't pay attention here you know an eagle on the game winning drive it's the exact same kind of thing that happened here to -- that. That you have to get in anybody's face the -- realize what was at stake in that speaks lines. I think that does adding that what you're -- that's very scenic area I think that is. Carson Palmer breezes he is Mary evening -- on and off and it helped perhaps. The team plane to all three penalties in that that. Let's talk about. The running game. Obviously -- -- dared me that he did not play in Austin doesn't really care about -- teams are doing it does care about Raiders and be happy after that game and at finding the end -- on that big run. What you see from -- I think you saw what he can do when he gets comfortable in that zone and when the guys that are actually running that's -- lucky scheme opened up those lanes. Is huge hole. He -- he took off he made one guy that was in the -- -- get him make him miss and any out ran into the -- that actually had an angle on him so you see what you can do. And they've been talking all along. That. They believe in it they've been preaching patience and perspective. And and -- he did he broke a 64 yard run within troublesome along with that in the first half was he also ran the ball five times in the first half for four yards. Still at the end of the day he has over a hundred yards and win great -- genius wink wink. But. It broke through and it broke free for a and that's that's what you see you remember the positive plays. Sensibly to break this down into parts for you is pretty subtle play -- the rap that he's got to talk about does that mean two -- about. The defense that finally get their first victory of the season and -- -- -- -- gap. So they haven't talked about having a great deal -- -- classic defense done and on the warmer up and families or. Yeah and really can make -- a case that of course he -- -- wins the game but you can make a case that. The play of the game was at least stripping the ball because the Steelers were driving downfield. And they -- races to go ahead are you pushed the -- even higher readers come down and take advantage of it get a field goal tied the game so. You know Pat -- had a really really tough game in Miami last week and that's pretty much forgotten them is that makes huge play and as everybody knows in -- -- for not for long. As far as memories good and bad. Not for long and I just -- -- Raiders insider Paul Gutierrez thinking -- right here on the California got hot. We haven't seen and as much as it takes to get information we wanna get up straighter and so -- we got wrapped blocking bias here actually and closing the doors. On his dad being dad reader's mind.
