    Steelers 2018 season

    http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/steelers/2018/04/19/steelers-2018-schedule-release-nfl-patriots-heinz-field/stories/201804190144 STEELERS 2018 REGULAR SEASON SCHEDULE September 9 – At Cleveland, 1 p.m. 16 – Kansas City, 1 p.m. 24 – at Tampa Bay, 8:15 p.m. 30 – Baltimore, 8:20 p.m. October 7 – Atlanta, 1 p.m. 14 – at Cincinnati, 1 p.m. 21 -- Off 28 – Cleveland, 1 p.m. November 4 – at Baltimore, 1 p.m. 8 – Carolina, 8:20 p.m. 18 – at Jacksonville, 8:20 p.m. 25 – at Denver, 4:25 p.m. December 2 – L.A. Chargers, 1 p.m. 9 – at Oakland, 8:20 p.m. 16 – New England, 4:25 p.m. 23 – at New Orleans, 4:25 p.m. 30 – Cincinnati, 1 p.m. If the showdown for the top seed in the AFC comes down to the Steelers and New England Patriots again, it will occur on the same NFL weekend as last season – same time, same location. The teams will meet in Heinz Field Dec. 16 -- in the 15th week of the season at 4:25 p.m., just as they did last year. The only thing the Steelers hope changes is the outcome. The NFL already updated its catch rule to where Jesse james’ touchdown last season that was overturned -- throwing the game in New England’s win column -- would count as a score this year. The Patriots claimed the No. 1 seed in the conference last year, and the Steelers No. 2. Their expected meeting in the AFC championship game was derailed when Jacksonville upset the Steelers at Heinz Field in the playoffs. That contest against the Patriots highlights the 16-game schedule the NFL announced for the Steelers Thursday night, and here’s an improvement – they will not play on Christmas or any other holiday this year. They played on Christmas Day in each of the past two seasons. The closest they come is their game at New Orleans Dec. 23, but they will be home in time for Christmas Eve. They also play at Denver Sunday after Thanksgiving. They open the season for the second straight time in Cleveland, a 1 p.m. game on Sept. 9. Their first home game comes the following week against Kansas City at 1 p.m., Sept. 16. It appears to be a balanced schedule, with only consecutive road games scheduled once. But while they do finish the regular season at home against Cincinnati, that is their only game against a division opponent over the final eight games. They play five of their first eight against division foes. The Steelers finish up September with two prime time games of the five they will once again play – at Tampa Bay Monday night, Sept. 24 and at home against Baltimore the following Sunday night. Their other three prime time games are Thursday night Nov. 8 against Carolina at home, and two Sunday night games – at Jacksonville Nov. 18 and at Oakland Dec. 9. The NFL changed their prime time kickoff times for this season, moving them slightly earlier. Monday night games will start 15 minutes earlier at 8:15 p.m. Sunday night will start 10 minutes earlier at 8:20 p.m. Thursday night will move five minutes earlier to 8:20 p.m. The Steelers’ off weekend comes in the NFL’s seventh week, Oct. 21.

    So the anniversary came and went. I didn't see any stories on the TV or in the paper. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the funeral. Dedicate a moment of peace. A moment without anger and bitterness. Keep Billy and those who survived the tragedy in your thoughts.

    The anniversary is next week (Feb 8). How many people will remember this event vs groundhog day? For those involved in the disaster, its a groundhog day from hell, over and over.

    Ponderosa closing

    Any competition for The Rhododendron would be welcome.
  6. Steeler fans need to look at the many, many other teams that never make it to the playoffs or SB. Tomlin has put a competitive team on the field each year. This is the first year I can remember that Rothlisberger wasn't injured. If he's not getting injured, it's a problem with the defense, offense, or the special teams. Yet, they often make the playoffs. If they can develop a defense that we'll stop the run, (we saw how the Jaguars and the Ravens ran through the defensive line), maintain the talent an offense, and stay healthy, then you will see them in the postseason, again. This team could be in just as much trouble as the Pirates or the Cleveland Browns. I'm not convinced that Tomlin is the main problem, but fans whining about not going to the Super Bowl are more irritating to me.

    Steelers part ways with offensive coordinator Todd Haley

    I agree. They also have a history of not playing well against bad teams. Unfortunately, the Steelers are not cleaning out the coaches on the defensive side, at this time.

    Steelers part ways with offensive coordinator Todd Haley

    Haley's poor preparation also screwed up the end of the game with New England, if I remember.
  9. I think this is good news. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22133581/pittsburgh-steelers-part-ways-offensive-coordinator-todd-haley
  10. I stayed with the Pirates for years, and McCutchen was the first recognizable face of the team since Willie Stargell. Gerrit Cole was traded to the Astros. More stars will be traded for minor league prospects. We are back to having the MLB farm team. I am done.

    I understand, but I'm a realist. I don't expect change In a government/big business with current election laws that discourage more than a two-party system and allow campaigns to be funded by obscene amounts of money, so I'm not disappointed. Insurance companies are protected from being sued, banks are too big to fail, and our elected representatives have better benefits than their average constituent. Heck, many people voted for a guy that didn't even pay his contractors. But, we still live in a country that's better than most.

    We pay for OSHA, but I don't expect them or any other agency to prevent all deaths no more than an alarm on a resident will keep them from falling or being strangled in a bedrail. I hope their is a monetary judgement. I hope that the people who were negligent are fired and face criminal charges. Nevertheless, garbage will continue to be collected and disposed of, and accidents like this will continue to happen as long as the financial punishments are so embarrassingly small.

    As I said earlier, its time to unleash the lawyers. Mr. Pierce died from AD negligence, and we should forget anyone one else who was injured in the accident.
