    May have to manipulate schedules a bit but I'm sure some smart guy can figure it out. Maybe have two Monday night games per week (East coast and west coast) early in the season before the byes kick in about week 4. That would make up for any revenue loss with TV contracts.
    With one Thursday night game to open the season, and the 3 games played on Thanksgiving day, every team would be able to play one Thursday game without having to schedule any Thursday games during weeks 2, 3, and 4. The earliest bye would be week 4 for the 2 teams playing on TNF in week 5.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    No more night games please and that includes Thursday, Sunday and Monday. 1pm and 4:30pm on Sunday afternoons is all the NFL any of us working stiffs need.

    I'm sold. We'll start our network and bid on the next contract

    NBC to use “High Sky” camera as primary angle for Sunday’s preseason game

    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 21, 2019, 3:57 PM EDT

    This Sunday’s Steelers-Titans preseason game will look a little different, thanks to NBC employing a different camera angle.

    NBC is using the “High Sky” camera as the primary play-by-play, live game coverage camera this Sunday night. The “High Sky” camera is at the line of scrimmage, about 50 feet above the ground.

    This isn’t the first time a Titans-Steelers game has been a testing ground for a different camera angle. When the two teams met in the 2017 regular season, NBC used SkyCam as the primary camera angle for the broadcast.

    Overhead camera angles often give a better sense of the positioning of the players and what the quarterback can see downfield, although some fans prefer the traditional sideline camera, which can give a better sense of how much yardage is gained on the play. Feedback from Sunday night’s game may help determine how often such camera angles are used in live game action going forward.

    I found it interesting ; yeah.. they need to tweek it but interesting.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN
