Re: Steeeeeeeeeeeeelers 2006 schedule .........
Local stations for the 2 teams playing the NFL Network games will broadcast the game over "free" TV in the 2 local markets. NFL Network wants cable to carry it (already on DirecTV) - no better way to do that than having games on your network.
It would be nice to get a late October bye week and not to have the Monday night game on the West Coast, which makes it an especially short week to prepare.
Look for one of the late season games to end up on NBC Sunday night.
Steelers come to the Georgia Dome this season - can't wait!
