Default Steelers vs. Saints NFL Opener?

Surely the powers that rule the schedule can see the beauty of having the Steelers play the Saints in the 2010 season opener. The last two SB champs going head to head. Sure would be better than the Saints opening with Bucs or Panthers

The Steelers have a fantastic opening day record as of late, I doubt the NFL would want to see the Steelers go into New Orleans and stomp a mudhole in their arse week 1.

Vikings at Saints opener is my guess.

Why would we want that? I wouldn't be scared of the matchup, but given the choice I'd rather not. The Super Dome is a crazy atmosphere anyway. I can only imagine what it will be like opening night. The league has turned that game into a circus celebrating the Super Bowl Champs (rightfully so). The opponents are an afterthought. It definitely would tell a lot about what kind of team we had coming out of the chute.

That's my thought, as well. Though is would be really cool to have last season's and this season's champs go head to head on opening night, don't think it has a snowball's chance in hell of happening.

i said this in another thread, it's not going to happen. the Steelers are too big of a ratings draw for NBC to put them on opening night.. the game would get mega ratings even if it were Saints-Rams, just for the fact that it is the first game of the year. they will save the Saints-Steelers game for either Sunday or Monday night later in the season and use the Steelers to boost the ratings.

it will most likely be Saints vs a conference rival or a team that got a new star player in the offseason.

I would like it if we would play Cincinnati and the Jets in prime time.
