Thursday night opener - Steelers at Pats.

Gives you a few days of extra rest after the first game. I'll take it and might as well get that one out of the way.

It might be the best time to play them. The Pats took some serious blows in FA. It may take them a few weeks to work out the kinks. Ben has to be licking his chops over their Secondary.

Agree. But I also think that Brady will also be looking forward to that one (pass-rush & secondary).

You can try and talk yourselves into this one all you want. I see the Steelers going on the road to serve as the Pats homecoming without Leveon Bell.

Screw Goodell and the league.

Calm down, we were the only choice. No one was trying to screw us.

Look at the Patriots home schedule. We are the biggest name to put against them on the opening night to drive the most viewers.

Bell or no Bell the fans drove this game.

That is where the decision begins and ends.

And yes....the home opener of the year is used as the superbowl champions homecoming - its the prize for winning the superbowl. The fact that we dont have Bell is our own fault. Well, Bells fault.

We're going to have to go at least 9 for our last 15 to make the playoffs, since we're going to start the season 0-1.

The best time to play them is week 17, when they're resting their starters.

Its not. It just simply is not.

You can believe whatever you would like to, but honestly thinking its anymore than what it is is just wrong.

They choose along the same baseline every year. Just look up the games. They like contending teams in the same conference and big fan base followings. Its exactly what we have here.

Its a big game. The Super Bowl/AFC East champs, vs the AFC North Champs and most likely a big time playoff contender in the eyes of the media.

Roethlesberger off one of his best seasons vs. Brady in a prime time game.

Steelers are a huge fanbase, and a hated fanbase. Both drive eyeballs.

They will both be vying for playoff spots against each other through the season.

But yes... Chip Kelly and his no name squad, whose biggest accomplishments were to make everyone wonder what he was doing this offseason would be a much better game for viewers on a Thursday night.

Geez, they must really hate the Steelers.

I would just like to see reasoning on why the commissioner of a league would have a vendetta against one of its biggest teams in legacy and following, and an ownership that has backed him.

We had to play them some time what's the big deal?

I think it is great game to start the season.

I asked them to take it easy on us in week 1:

I don't know. They might not have that luxury this year. I see them taking a step back this year.
