    Breaking Down The Schedule - by Black@GoldForever 32

    Breaking Down The Schedule

    It’s that time of year again Steelers Nation, with the official release of the Steelers schedule lets break it down. Every year at this time I like to go through the schedule game by game; “oh this game is a win or this game will be tough, this game could be a loss, etc.”

    The Steelers, kick off the 2007 season and the Mike Tomlin era in Cleveland against the hated Browns. I would like to say this game is an easy win but we all know better than that, divisional road games are never easy. I like the Steelers chances in this game and I see the team getting Tomlin his first win as Head Coach, in his first game.

    The Steelers then have back to back home games against the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers. The Bills have under gone some major changes in the off-season. The 49ers are improving under the direction of Head Coach Mike Nolan. Looking at both of these games I really like the Steelers chances to start 3-0.

    The Steelers then travel to Arizona, to face the Cardinals. There will be some familiar faces on the AZ sideline. Former Steelers Offensive Coordinator Ken Whisenhunt is now the Cardinals Head Coach, (plus Russ Grimm and Kevin Spencer followed Coach Whisenhunt to AZ.) I think this game has trap game written all over it and the Steelers better be careful in this game. The Cards will be ready to play in this game as I'm sure Coach Whisenhunt would like nothing more then to beat his former employer.

    In week 5 it’s a rematch of Super Bowl XL, as the Seahawks travel to Pittsburgh. This game will be a tough game for the Black & Gold, with the Seahawks looking for some revenge since their Super Bowl loss to the Steelers. The Steelers then have their bye week in week 6. The team has a good chance to start the season 4-1 heading into their bye.

    After the bye the Steelers then have two tough road games back to back. The team first travels to Denver in week 7 and then Cincinnati in week 8. In a perfect world the Steelers would win both games, but it’s not a perfect world and I look the Steelers to split these two games.

    Next up for the Steelers is a home date with the Ravens in week 9 to close out the first half of the season. After the first 8 games the Steelers have a very chance to be 6-2 or 5-3. Which they will need as the second half of the schedule looks more challenging.

    In week 10 the Browns come to Pittsburgh, the Steelers will win this game, mark it down. Next up the Steelers head to the Meadowlands to take on the New York Jets. This will be a tough road game against a play-off quality team.

    After their New York trip. The Steelers then have two home dates against the Dolphins in week 12 and the Bengals in week 13. I like the Steelers chances in these games. They will need to take care of business in both of these games since in week 14 they head to New England. I hate to say it I see this as a loss for our beloved Black & Gold.

    The Steelers then close out the season with one more home game and two road games. The Jacksonville Jags, come to Pittsburgh in week 15. Hopefully a snow storm hits Pittsburgh for this game since the Jags always play the Steelers tough. Then the Steelers go on the road for back to back games against the Rams in St Louis and the Ravens in Baltimore. Both games could be tough and I look the Steelers to split these road games.

    I think overall the Steelers, have a tough schedule. They have some very tough road games. Playing in Denver, New York and New England is ever easy, plus the division road games are always tough. The Steelers in my mind have a more easy time with their home schedule. But the Seahawk game will be a tough one. Right now looking at the schedule I see the Steelers at 10-6 or 11-5.

    Nice breakdown bro. With a new coaching staff and trying new things on both offense and defense, it will be a tough season but a winning record and a playoff bid is not out of the question. I really hope we have a lot of tough games, mainly to challenge our guys and bring them together as a team. It will build the character of our team and make it very possible to make a Super Bowl run.

    I don't think we'll have much trouble with the Browns. We never do.

    I can see us going 4-2 in the division. Bills, 49ers, Cardinals, and Dolphins games are all games that we SHOULD win. And then the Jacksonville game, our games with the Jags always seem to favor the home team, so I'm confident about that one. And I think we can take the Pats.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we go 12-4.
