Pittsburgh's loss in Oakland Sunday came as a shock to everyone, but as everyone looked to the Chunky Soup Curse for an explanation, Chunky threw up his hands in defense, "Hey, don't look at me! I have an alibi! I was in Philadelphia trying to kill Donovan McNabb!"
The Oakland Raiders won the game at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-13 in what was possibly the worst game in Steelers franchise history. Just looking at the stats of the game, it would seem that the Steelers whipped the Raiders asses. However, with the Steelers going for 360 yards against Oakland's paltry 98 yards, how could they lose?
Ben Roethlisberger, 2006 poster child for Easter Seals, was not in game shape and was not ready to take on the Oakland Raiders, still suffering the effects of his second concussion in four months last week against Atlanta. Roethlisberger threw four interceptions and was sacked five times which helped Oakland win their first game without scoring one single offensive point.
Chunky, Monday, stated that he wished he could take credit for this latest humiliation, "Ben did better on his own than I did all weekend. The best I got was a few sacks on McNabb. Sure Philly lost, but it wasn't THAT bad. I mean, Jesus Christ, what was Cowher thinking? Not even I would have played Ben, yesterday. My god, I think I should sit back on the sidelines and take notes next week. I could learn a thing or two from Ben."
