The list of victims upcoming opponents for your Six Time World Champion Pittsburgh Steelers was announced Tuesday evening.

I don’t know about you but I think I’m looking at a pretty realistic shot at 15-1 with this list of patsies and nincompoops.  After last year’s murderous slate where we played pretty much every playoff team and most of the contenders, this looks like a cakewalk.  In fact, the geniuses at the NFL have taken us from the most difficult schedule in 30 years to the 4th easiest.

Sure, the Bears added Jay Cutler but they have nobody for him to throw to and their defense is in decline.  The Chargers might improve if DE Shawn Merriman gets back on the ‘roids returns to Pro Bowl form although that’s a long shot.  The Chiefs think Matt Cassel will pull them out of their legacy of mediocrity except we slapped him around last year when he was on a far better team.

Seriously, the Lions?   The Vikings?   The Broncos?  The Raid-uhs?  Can we schedule Buffalo State and Texas A&M while we’re at it?

Start printing up the playoff tickets now.

    So who do you think we get the one loss from? 

  • Mike

    Texas A&M? Where did that come from? A bit random don’t you think?

  • Andrew

    I am totally excited.

    And I dont want to go 16-0. Its too risky. Too much hocus pocus going on there.

    But 15-1 I see. I think either @ Denver (possibly without ryan clark) or @ Baltimore would deal the loss.

    Robyn, I’m looking at the Broncos game (we always struggle in Denver’s suffocating thin air) and the Chargers game (they usually play us tough) as the two possible trouble spots.

    Of course, all it takes is Big Ben making a wrong turn on the 10th Street Bridge and all this optimism goes completely out the window.  So let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
