Steelers at Ravens kick off classic?
 
Does the NFL give the fans the game everybody wants to see?

There are a lot of possibilities. Ravens have NE, NYJ, GB, Houston, Cincy and Pit all on their home schedule. Minny or the Browns are unlikely IMO.

Great idea... unless John starts crying about it.

Hopefully they fix the scheduling fuck up they had this year where the steelers had to play the ravens 2 out of 3 weeks, leaving us to play them twice with a banged up team. not saying it would have made a difference but I'd like to see that changed for next year, it's just not fair.

The way our team has started out of the gate the last couple of seasons, the last thing I want is to have to face them in the first game of next season. Until our guys start getting themselves into football shape sooner and decide to start playing NFL regular season football when everybody else does, I'd rather not have to face our chief divisional rival fresh off a Super Bowl victory in the first few games and potentially put ourselves in an early hole because certain players can't find a weight room in the off-season (I'm looking at you LaMarr).

I think it will probably be the Pats* or the Texans.

probably the pats they tend to like to replay the conference champ games

Yep, opening night will be Baltimore versus New England in Baltimore. I'd bet good money on that.

I read somewhere (maybe PFT) that the NFL generally does not put divisional foes against each other for the kickoff game. Cowboys-Giants was a rare exception earlier this season.

I'd love the Steelers vs Ravens for the kick off classic. The Rats are now going to have to pay Flacco BIG bucks. Likely they are losing Reed, Lewis is gone, Kruger will likely leave by free agency and they are still going to have to cut others to get under the cap.
They had a nice run, just like we had in 05, but IMO they will come back to earth and struggle next season. There will be a huge leadership void without Lewis and if Reed goes to, they will have huge problems. If the Steelers show any semblance of the talent they possess, this division will be ours again

Honestly, I don't want the Steelers to play the season opener in Baltimore because that'd be three seasons in a row that they start on the road.

Matt Birk will most likely retire as well.
