Do we play Denver in '06?

I can't remember how to figure the opponents anymore..... I just 'assumed' we'd draw the 6 divisional games, the NFC South, all three 2nd-place AFC teams, and a 'random' 1st, 3rd, and 4th-place AFC team.....

Yeah..... they'd have the 2 'extremes' of modern-day NFL-receivers:
Ego/azz-hat in Turdell Ownself versus 'hit-and-grin' Hines Ward.


..... maybe T.O. can ruin team-unity on THERE, too!!!!!

last time they played, hines did break out with that awesome mock eagle flap dance in the endzone.

I got the Super Bowl Game program. In The Program their is a section called looking ahead. Under that section the Opening night game IS September 7th and the 1st game is to be played at the home of the Super Bowl Champion(Being The Steelers).

Actually, I hate all the pomp and hyperbole associated with these kinds of games. Hopefully the Steelers stay focused as Champions...
