Did we win the Super bowl?  This is a hard schedule!

 the Steelers will play the Colts, Cowboys, Chargers, Giants and Texans at Heinz Field. They will play the Patriots, Jaguars, Eagles, Titans and Redskins on the road and the six division opponets.

I hope that we have a strong offseason.  When does the offseason officially begin?  Anyone here know?

Holy fuck!

Maybe this is payback for having one of the easiest schedules in the league this year?

That's a ridiculous schedule.  I mean, just about every single team on there is exciting, but holy shit- there is not a SINGLE doorstop on that list.  In fact, the Eagles are the only team there that are significantly under .500 this season.  All of the other ones could finish at least .500 if they win their final games.

Freakishly tough schedule.

I don't care if Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are black. Good for them. But that doesn't change the way I feel about them. The longer we keep looking at guys like Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith as "BLACK HEAD COACHES" as opposed to just "coaches" the longer race will continue to be a problem. --DoctorJohnnyFever

Cleveland will have a similar schedule, though subbing Buffalo and Denver for NE and SD will make things a little easier for them.  A Steelers sweep eliminates that advantage.  As noted above, everyone on the schedule won't project into powerhouses in 2008, but I'd guess that the AFCN winner will go 9-7 next year (hopefully the PS), with most of the wins in the division.  The Steelers are going to have fix some of the holes that were exposed this year, however.

The good news is that a 9-7 Steelers team that has improved itself will be potentially far more dangerous in the playoffs than this year's 11-5 version (if they win on Sunday).  They'll probably have to win the division.

On an unrelated note, every PS team with LeBeau as DC (6 seasons) has made the playoffs except for last year, including both SB appearances.  The PS have 4 division titles, and the WC season (2005) included the SB win.  Heckuva run.

It's just luck of the draw. This season, the AFC South and NFC East are the two toughest divisions in the league. They're the same two divisions that we play in full next season, based on the year-to-year revolving schedule.

2002: AFC South, NFC South
HOME: Houston, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Carolina.
ROAD: Jacksonville, Tennessee, New Orleans, Tampa Bay.

2003: AFC West, NFC West
HOME: Oakland, San Diego, Arizona, St. Louis.
ROAD: Denver,  Kansas City, San Francisco, Seattle.

2004: AFC East, NFC East
HOME: New England, New York Jets, Philadelphia, Washington.
ROAD: Buffalo, Miami, Dallas, New York Giants.

2005: AFC South, NFC North
HOME: Jacksonville, Tennessee, Chicago, Detroit.
ROAD: Houston, Indianapolis, Green Bay, Minnesota.

2006: AFC West, NFC South
HOME: Denver, Kansas City, New Orleans, Tampa Bay.
ROAD: Oakland, San Diego, Atlanta, Carolina.

2007: AFC East, NFC West
HOME: Buffalo, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle.
ROAD: New England, New York Jets, Arizona, St. Louis.

2008: AFC South, NFC East
HOME: Houston, Indianapolis, Dallas, New York Giants.
ROAD: Jacksonville, Tennessee, Philadelphia, Washington.


2009: AFC West, NFC North
HOME: Oakland, San Diego, Green Bay, Minnesota.
ROAD: Denver, Kansas City, Chicago, Detroit.

2010: AFC East, NFC South
HOME: New England, New York Jets, Atlanta, Carolina.
ROAD: Buffalo, Miami, New Orleans, Tampa Bay.

2011: AFC South, NFC West
HOME: Jacksonville, Tennessee, Arizona, St. Louis.
ROAD: Houston, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Seattle.

2012: AFC West, NFC East
HOME: Denver, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Washington.
ROAD: Oakland, San Diego, Dallas, New York Giants.

2013: AFC East, NFC North
HOME: Buffalo, Miami, Chicago, Detroit.
ROAD: New England, New York Jets, Green Bay, Minnesota.

The revolving schedule repeats itself every 12 years. In 2014, we'd be back to the AFC South and NFC South again.

I totally concur with padg.  If we come through that 9-7, we could be a much better team than the 11-5 2007 team.  Facing a soft schedule does us no real favors, as we've found before.  We need to be battle-tested and ready for anything, assuming we can make the postseason.

The whole division basically plays the same schedule, save for a few games. So I don't see how it matters. Hold your own, dominate the divisional games again, start passing out the ugly ass division champ hats.

The Chargers and Patsies are the SOS games.  But the season isn't finished yet so how can they put out the SOS games?  WTF?

And are the Jags scheduled every year?  Jesus.

yeah, im sure all the divisional standings are not set in stone already.  Wash and Phi, Det/Chi, and Oak/KC are still battling for last place in their respective divisions.
