    Seriously doubt the league would have the Steelers play their first three on the road. I don't think that has ever been done. Guess we'll see later this month.

    there was a 2012 schedule that leaked that for the Steelers have no Monday night games, 2 Sunday Night games and a Thursday night game. Whats even more strange is they gave the Cleveland Frickin Browns a Monday night Game.

    League says leaked regular-season schedule is “bogus”

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 6, 2012, 1:38 PM EDT


    Many of you have submitted via email over the past day or so various links to a supposedly leaked 2012 regular-season schedule.
    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says it’s “bogus.”
    Though the league necessarily can’t keep a lid on information that goes out to the 32 teams, the league office guards zealously the regular-season schedule. Since the teams don’t get it, the teams can’t leak it.
    The regular-season schedule will be released before the draft. There’s rarely much advance notice before the thing comes out.
    That’s what she said?



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    Yeah I cant imagine the Steelers starting off with 3 road games in a row and having 4 home games in a row in the middle of the season.

    I think the Dallas game is a home game anyways. This schedule has us AT Dallas....So, it is bogus.

    it alternates IIRC

    last time we played dallas was in pittsburgh the year we won SB 43

    so i think we play in dallas this year

    Yep we play at Dallas and at NY Giants, Home against Washington and Phili from the NFC East

    Since 2001 the Steelers and Baltimore have alternated the games H -A each year except once in 2007 and 2008 the Steelers played the 1st game at H. So if we do open with Bal more than likely it will be in Pittsburgh.

    Not that it really matters, you still have to play all the games somewhere anyhow.

    The Steelers have only won 2 of the last 6 games against the Giants since 1985. Both wins were in NY. Maybe we're better off playing them there this year. They did beat the Steelers here in 2008.

    Ben beat the Cowboys in Dallas his 1st year in 2004 and then beat them here in 2008. The Cowboys had won the previous 4 games dating back to 1991.

    The story in 2008 was the difficulty of the schedule. Anytime you play the NFC East the schedule is tough. But the Steelers like challenges.
