Default Can someone explain something to me.

Why is that Pittsburgh has to go to New England in back to back seasons? I know the game will probably be a prime time game, but why does Pittsburgh have to go there to play the game? What's wrong with the mighty Patriots coming to the Steel City?

I don't care where we play them. We'll kick their asses next time.

Nothin' like whoopin' their asses on their own turf. Especially since it's alot easier for them to cheat at home and we still grind them into the ground.

Last time we played an AFC East team because of placing which was in 2006, the AFC East team came here. So we have to go there the next time around.

Yep.

They came to Pittsburgh two years in a row, now we are going up there twice in a row. I don't know exactly why we are playing them 4 times in 4 years, but I understand going there twice after coming here twice.

That, and the fact that the Colts have to come here next year since we played at Indy in 2005, which is the last time we played the AFC South. They could have had us go to SD again and the Pats* come here, but if they had, we'd have played at SD the last 3 times we played them, and I don't think the league wanted to do that. In fact, the last time we played SD here was in 2003, and we absolutely hammered them.

How about this for seeing a team way too often - next season, Jacksonville will be on the schedule for the 5th straight season. You'd think they were still in our division for crying out loud! They've also won 3 of the previous 4 regular season matchups.
