Default Peter King - Steelers 2008 Schedule "Toughest In Recent History"

Peter King notes what has been observed here before - the 2008 Steelers schedule is murderous.

Has anyone out there looked at the Steelers' schedule for this fall? Schedules are organic things in terms of degree of difficulty; they tend to change week-by-week during the season. But looking at Pittsburgh's slate right now, we might be seeing the toughest schedule a team has had in recent history.

Lots of teams have division schedules as tough or tougher than six games with Cleveland, Cincinnati and Baltimore, though the rising Browns, Carson Palmer and the presumably rejuvenated Ravens will be a difficult six-pack.

Amazing. Horrendously amazing, if you bleed black and gold.
Schedule factoids:

? Eight of Pittsburgh's 10 non-AFC North games are against 2007 playoff teams.

? All 10 non-division foes were .500 or better in 2007.

? New England plays four games against teams that finished over .500 in the 2007 regular season. Pittsburgh plays 10.

? Excluding the Steelers in 2005, the last four Super Bowl champs (Giants, Colts, Pats, Pats) are on Pittsburgh's schedule.

Just one more comforting thought for what may be a year of stepping back to reload for the future.

I'm not worried. These things have a way of working themselves out. If there is one thing that you can say about NFL pre-season speculation, it is that almost ALL of it is wrong. As a matter of fact, the only prediction that I think I could accurately make over the last 20 years, and win a decent percentage of the time, would be that the Steelers would make the playoffs.

So that will be my only prediction: the Steelers make the playoffs. I figure that it's 2-1 odds in favor.
