    We have the 3rd place schedule in 2007

    http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_486593.html

    By The Associated Press
    Tuesday, January 2, 2007

    For the second season in a row, the Pittsburgh Steelers won't play a schedule overloaded with first-place teams.

    The Steelers (8-8) finished third in the AFC Central despite having the same record as division runner-up Cincinnati (8-8), and thus will play a third-place schedule in 2007. The AFC's other third-place teams — Buffalo (7-9), Jacksonville (8-8) and Denver (9-7) — are on their schedule.

    The Steelers also play every team in the AFC East and the NFC West.

    At home, the Steelers will meet San Francisco (7-9), Seattle (9-7), Buffalo, Miami (6-10), Jacksonville and their AFC North opponents, Cincinnati, Cleveland (4-12) and Baltimore (13-3).


    On the road, the Steelers oppose Arizona (5-11), St. Louis (8-8), New England (12-4), New York Jets (10-6), Denver and their division opponents.

    There are three first-place teams on the schedule: AFC North champion Baltimore, plus AFC East champion New England and AFC West champion Seattle. The only AFC playoff teams they won't meet are Indianapolis (12-4) and San Diego (14-2).

    By losing the AFC North title to Cincinnati last season, the Steelers avoided playing a first-place schedule this season even after winning the Super Bowl. Still, they missed the playoffs for the second time in six seasons despite not having to play 2005 division champions New England and Indianapolis.
    Next year is hardly going to be easy whether it's a 3rd place schedule or not, those are some tough teams we'll be facing.

    I am going to defer smack talk about next season until after this one is over. But that discussion could very well come sooner than later the way the Hawks have backed into the post season.

    I'll take some of that action when the time comes.

    Really though, I underestimated how tough our schedule next year could be but since we made that push late in the season, and since the browns suck so bad I guess we were destined it for anyways. Those teams on there are no slouches and all of them have gotten hot this year at some point.

    That isn't an easy schedule at all, Matt. The Seattle game is going to be a huge one, I agree with Hawk. Prime time it is. You know Holmgren will be fired up for revenge on the Steelers for this one. I can see us going 11-5 or 10-6 into the playoffs.

    I wonder how many prime time games we'll get in 2007...then again it doesn't really matter what the schedule says since Flex scheduling is in effect..
