Default Question ..? .. serious question please ...

Why do the Steelers have to announce our cuts down to the 53 man roster by 4:00 PM today when six (6) other NFL teams still have their final game to play tonight?

I'm not sure I get this ... ????

Maybe it has something to do with the Steelers playing the 1st regular season game of the year next week. I always thought it went by the order in which the teams play their 1st games of the regular season.

I think steelers.com would have the information or PPG's website I'm sure.

The leaguewide deadline isn't until Saturday.

I don't know if they gave the teams who played yesterday an earlier deadline -- maybe so, to keep things equal and give everyone only one day after the last game to make the final cuts. But no one's getting shafted here and having to make cuts before their preseason is over.

this was what tomlin said in the gazette

Tomlin said all of his cuts, which do not have to be made until tomorrow, will be done today.

I thought that 4pm was Tomlin deadline so that the team can have a full extra day to prepare for Tennessee.

That's not necessarily true.

If the late teams can see who's available on the waiver wire before they make their final cuts, they may be able to grab some players to fill some serious voids that the Steelers would like to keep around on our practice squad.

This seems like an unfair advantage.
