Nice. Can't wait to go. Hopefully we don't get screwed out of the Monday night games this year. Hopefully we have two home and one away this year.

They should have the rematch of the last Super Bowl for the first game. But since the schedule is made up years in advance, there is no possible way that could happen. Which AFC didvision do we play this year other then the AFC North?

heres who we play this year...
Home:BAL, CIN, CLE, DEN, KC, NO, TB, MIA
Away:BAL, CIN, CLE, OAK, SD, ATL, CAR, JAX

I'd like to see us play Cin or Den in the opener.....

I wouldnt mind seeing a PIT vs SD... pure smashmouth football and a great way to test our team early in the season. Another brutal schedule for the chargers as well as us.

Denver is a strong possibility, as is Cincinnati. Either Kansas City or Tampa Bay would also make a good home opener.

Almost all of the best games will be on Sunday night, Monday night, or on one of the end of the season games being broadcast by NFL Network. After that, look for the Steelers to be on the 4PM or 4:15 PM Sunday games. The Oakland game, being on the West Coast, is almost certain to be a 4PM Sunday game. The San Diego game will likely be a prime time game.

Maybe only duds like the Brownstains, Saints and Ratbirds will be 1PM games.

Thanks for the schedule. It will definitely be one of those two, most likely Denver. Denver and Pittsburgh are both large market teams.

Damn Jax again?? im getting tired of seeing this team play us. The steelers have had good games against them but i wanted to go against one NFC east team instead of MIA and one NFC west team. (cryhawks anyone??)

Edit: i would of liked to see pitt against the giants or the skins.

I don't care who the Steelers play. I just want them to put up W's in the standings and in the playoffs.

That's due to the schedule formula. Jax, Miami and Pittsburgh were second place teams in 2005, so they play each other in 2006. Pittsburgh played the entire NFC East (in which three of the teams - NY, Philly and Washington - are the Steelers' oldest rivals, going back to 1933) in 2004 and will not play them again until 2008. In 2006 Pittsburgh plays the NFC South, and in 2007 the NFC West.
