Default Steelers-Bengals finale could be night game

Saturday, December 23, 2006
By Colin Dunlap, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



There's a good chance the Steelers' season finale Dec. 31 at Cincinnati will be shifted from its scheduled 1 p.m. start time to an 8 p.m. kickoff as part of the National Football League's flex schedule and NBC's "Sunday Night Football" coverage. The Steelers could find out about any such change as soon as tomorrow night.

Such a shift could upset plans of a large number of Steelers fans who traditionally make the trip to Cincinnati, one of the few trips this season easily negotiable by car.

If the kickoff time is changed, many Steelers fans would have to adjust or cancel New Year's Eve parties that might have been in the works for an extended period.

And the Steelers' plans?

"Right now, we have a game scheduled against the Baltimore Ravens at 1 p.m. this Sunday," safety Troy Polamalu said. "That is the one and only game that has my focus."


Holiday cheer


The Steelers are 3-2 in Christmas Eve games since the NFL merger in 1970, winning the past two.

Last season, the Steelers rolled past Cleveland, 41-0, on Christmas Eve and, in 2000, the Steelers celebrated on the West Coast with a 34-21 win at San Diego.

The game tomorrow, however, will be the first one played here on Christmas Eve since that merger.


Production


Rookie receiver Santonio Holmes needs 105 receiving yards to post the most by a rookie receiver under coach Bill Cowher since Troy Edwards accumulated 714 yards in 1999. Holmes has 610 yards on 40 catches for an average of 15.3 yards. Edwards' yardage came on 61 catches with an 11.7 average.


Familiar guy


Baltimore outside linebackers coach Mike Pettine is a name that should ring a bell to anybody with an interest in Pennsylvania high school football. Before joining the Ravens in 2002, Pettine was a highly successful coach at William Tennent and North Penn High Schools. From 1997-2001 at North Penn, his teams won 45 games.

His father, Mike Sr., is one of six high school coaches in state history to amass 300 wins as the longtime coach at Central Bucks West.


Quick hits


The Steelers have won their past five home games against the Ravens. ... Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger needs 144 yards passing to reach 8,000 in his brief career.

Ughhh. That would bite for those traveling to Shitsinnati for that game, but what a better way to bring the New Year in than by beating those butthats in their own house? I have two tickets available to me and I'm strongly considering taking up the offer - with my luck, the snowstorm that I've been aching for would happen on my drive to or from Shitsinnati.

I know people will maintain that Cowboys/Redskins or Bears/Packers are the NFLs big rivalries - but in terms of two competetive teams with a genuine dislike of each other Bengals/Steelers is right up there.

The games are always great to watch, and there always seems to be some player related drama - hopefully this will be one of next weeks live games.

An 8 pm game would work for me. We don't get many Steeler games in Kansas unless you go to a BlacknGold bar. I found the link to the Pittsburghpostgazette.com and realized that there are 3 right in the area that I live in. Didn't know that. But I do know.

Hey girl! If you're coming to town, you know you have a place to stay if you want it! Just LMK. This city would never be the same with you, me and Stillers together!!!

I just wish they'd make up their minds about this game time. Enough with the waiting already!!!

What??!! That sucks. God damn NFL is really pissing me off lately. There shouldnt be any game on New Years Eve. I plan on a huge party at my house every New Years that I have to host so I guess tommorows game is the last game of the season for me. Maybe if this game was planned in advance to be played that time people like my self, and I'm sure many others could of altered thier plans so they could watch it. I think I will be watching the ball drop (and I dont mean out of the hands of Holmes on a punt return either) on New Years. Thanks NFL and your shitty ass new scheduling.

I can't think of a finer way of ringing in the new year than watching my Steelers kick the Bungles all the way into next year!!!
