So far, the Chargers' pass defense has been the entire team's Achilles' heel. It enters the game giving up an average of 240 yards per game and is ranked 26th.
"I wouldn't say that the Steelers picked on our secondary," Jue said. "For anybody who thinks that they're can come in and just throw us all over the place, (well) you get into the game and you find out something completely different. We're a solid group back there and we've been playing solid."
If so, our mistake.
"It's going to be a great test for our secondary because they have three great receivers -- uh, one great one and two dang good ones," cornerback Quentin Jammer said. "It's going to be a good match up."
But on the surface, it seems like a bad match up for the Chargers. Then again, if they can stifle Moss and Co., it would give the pass defense a heck of a boost going into the next week when they must tangle with the Eagles combo of Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens.
"I think the key to shutting (the Raider) guys down is playing honest football," Jue said. "Just continually do what you're supposed to do on every play. The second you break out of that mold and you try to make a play that's not there is when you're going to give up the big ball or when you fall asleep."
The Chargers' defensive backs can't afford to hit the snooze alarm Sunday.
