I'm betting the opener will be against Denver...a rematch of the AFCCG will get the networks mouth watering...

I'll buy that. Makes the most sense, specially if Palmer is still out with his injury.

I don't believe that the NFL will schedule us to play Denver. This is how I see it, final roster cuts will be made on the Sunday prior to the Thursday nighter. To fly Denver in from out west for a Thursday night game will leave them very little if any time to prepare for the Steelers. I just believe that it would be very unfair for them and they would probably raise a lot of h e l l about it. I like Cincinnati in this spot. It just makes too much sense.

Except the the networks want game everyone wants to watch, and without Palmer, the Bungles are not worth watching. Denver, however will be worth watching . . . especially if they sign TO.

Oakland had to travel to NE last year for the Thursday opener, so I don't think that travel is a question for the league.

I definitely think it will be Denver as well, but whomever it is I will be there!

I'm leaning towards Denver as well. With or without TO the game will still grab ratings.

Pittsburgh will open the season on Thursday night at home. Either Denver or Kansas City will be the opponent. Both are good teams that will create more interest for a national audience.

Nobody can say how the Sunday night/Monday night/Thursday night for sure right now. I hate Monday nights because Tuesday is a rotten day at work after staying up late. Obviously, this isn't a problem if you live on the West Coast. NBC will like to have the Steelers more than once and you can bet NFL Network wants to have the Steelers, too.

CBS will want more than one Steeler game for a 4PM or 4:15 Pm national broadcast. To sum it up, there won't be many 1PM Eastern games next year. Poobably, just the Ratbirds, Clowns and Saints.

The Steelers I think will get 1or 2 Mondays and 1 or 2 Sunday Nights. I'm sure The Bus Will be pushing for the Sundays.

If they could get a Cinci-Pitt primetime game in the second half of the season, that would probably receive a pretty nice rating.
