Tough schedules will show the true grit of a "real" good team or expose a team that is merely pretending. Either way we go we'll be better for it in the long run.

Bring it!

I can't wait!!!!! This news just made my day!!!

Bg4vr hit it right on, this year our team needs to have that exact "bring it" attitude. No matter who is up next on the schedule or where we play them we need to be on our game and take care of business. One thing is for sure, atleast on paper, we'll be battle tested for the post season once it arrives.

On NFLN today, they said ours is just about the toughest in the whole league--and that the Pats will be just about the easiest. We got the AFCE and S I think it was--while the Pats will be playing the likes of Oakland and the 9ers (not to mention that the THREE other teams in their own division won only a TOTAL of 12 games all of last season.

Sully wanted to know (rhetorically of course) how it happens that the team who went 16-0 and to the SB got such an easy schedule.

Steelers 2008 schedule announced
Tuesday, April 15, 2008
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Not only do the Steelers have the toughest schedule in the league, the NFL issued them one in which they won't have the chance to feel comfortable with any one kickoff time.

The Steelers play at night in three of their first five games and have only two scheduled 1 p.m. kickoffs in their first 13 games in 2008.

Their schedule, released by the NFL this afternoon, contains the maximum of five night games -- two on Sunday, two on Monday and one Thursday.
The Steelers open at Heinz Field Sept. 7 against the Houston Texans and then go right into the teeth of their AFC North Division competition at Cleveland Sept. 14, an 8:15 p.m. start. The Browns and Steelers are virtual co-favorites in the AFC North, according to early odds.

The date for the Steelers' preseason opener also has been set, for Aug. 8 against Philadelphia at Heinz Field.


8 -- Philadelphia, 7:30
14 -- vs. Buffalo in Toronto, 7:30 p.m.
23 -- at Minnesota, 8 p.m.
28 -- Carolina, 7:30 p.m.



7 -- Houston, 1 p.m.
14 -- at Cleveland, 8:15 p.m.
21 -- at Philadelphia, 4:15 p.m.
29 -- Baltimore, 8:30 p.m.

5 -- at Jacksonville, 8:15 p.m.
12 -- Off
19 -- at Cincinnati, 1 p.m.
26 -- New York Giants, 4:15 p.m.

3 -- at Washington, 8:30 p.m.
9 -- Indianapolis, 4:15 p.m.
16 -- San Diego, 4:15 p.m.
20 -- Cincinnati, 8:15 p.m.
30 -- at New England, 4:15 p.m.

7 -- Dallas, 4:15 p.m.
14 -- at Baltimore, 1 p.m.
21 -- at Tennessee, 1 p.m.
28 -- Cleveland, 1 p.m.
