2012 Pittsburgh Steelers Preview: Changes Hurt The Steelers Chances in 2012


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


The Pittsburgh Steelers have been one of the most consistent teams in the NFL over the years and they seemingly always have a team that can win the Super Bowl. The 2012 version is once again well equipped with a strong defense and a core of veterans, but they will have a much tougher time finding success on the field this year.

The latest odds posted by Just Bet have the Pittsburgh Steelers at 20-to-1 to win the Super Bowl and 10-to-1 to win the tough AFC, this is a sign that the oddsmakers have lost faith in the Steelers this year.

Steelers will struggle in 2012

In the Super bowl preview, the Steelers were overlooked as potential winners, and in a over/under preview of all teams in the NFL, the Steelers were forecasted to go under.

The Steelers will have their hands full with a changing offense and a demanding schedule.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is the one mainstay on offense that is the heartbeat of the team. After the seemingly forced retirement of Hines Ward th...

NFL Changes Late Game Start Times to 4:25 p.m. ET


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

The only particularly interesting takeaway from the NFL's recent decision to move kickoff times of the "late" games (as opposed to "early" and "primetime") from 4:15 p.m. ET to 4:25 p.m. ET is why they didn't do it sooner.

As Dan Gigler of the Post-Gazette wrote, "According to an NFL release, the later kickoff time will reduce the likelihood of fans missing the finish of a 1 p.m. telecast because TV contract rules require the networks to broadcast the opening kickoff of every home-market team's late-afternoon games."

Obviously this differs from market to market, but Steelers fans in a non-primary or secondary Steelers market are at the mercy of a local team playing at 1 p.m., and that game going into overtime. The other channel (in this example, CBS) cannot air the late game until the early game is over.

So yeah, in that case, why not bump the time back a few minutes? Granted, it makes the league appear to be run more on the schedule of Amtrak, but of the three, it's the most flexible time slot.

Another 10 minutes can be torturous, because it gives talking heads another 10 minutes to Sports Shout about whatever the latest trendy topic is, but if it means those of us in non-primary Steelers markets (particularly those of us in the primary markets of AFC teams, like Denver or Kansas City) don't have to miss kickoff, then I'm all for it.

The Steelers have five games affected by this: Their home-opener (Week 2 Sept. 16) vs. the Jets, Week 3 (Sept. 23) at Oakland, Week 9 (Nov. 4) at the Giants, Week 13 (Dec. 2) at Baltimore and Week 15 (Dec. 16) at Dallas.
