I thought the Steelers game against the Titans this Sunday has been re-cheduled for 4 o'clock instead of 1 o'clock. Just checked Fox Sports and they still have it listed for 1 o'clock.

Pittsburgh had the toughest schedule in the NFL this year. And just so you know, I'm not even a Steelers fan.

Back to the Pro Bowl snubs - if ANYONE deserves to be PO'd for not getting voted in - it should be Bryan Westbrook of the Eagles. No way Portis should have gotten in over Westbrook.

There are alot of people that should not be going to the probowl. Look at the QB There has been alot of players overlooked. Like TJ Hous,Marshawn Lynch, Owen Daniels, D'Qwell Jackson so many others but I quess that is just how it is.Some people just get looked over because the team or the record it sucks. But GO STEELERS AND BEAT THE TITANS.STEELERS 27- TITANS 13

wrong conclusions there phishphan. The steelers had the toughest schedule in the nfl and have beaten their way to the top with a sledge hammer. After they destroy the titans this weekend it will be obvious to the rest of the league that no team can stand between the Mighty Steelers and their sixth super bowl ring!!

I have to disagree, the Browns schedule is almost identical AND they have to play the almighty Steelers twice..so I guess I would say the Browns have a tougher schedule. LOL
I am soooo tired of hearing Steeler fans whine about how tough their schedule is.

When your team sucks and has a hard schedule it doesn't count. My previous comment was a rebuttal to the Phins fan not whining.

The Dolphins are frightened of cold weather, Phishfood, everyone knows that. So I sure hope they come visiting this year, too. The Steelers have NOTHING to apologize for in their schedule, BTW. Who are you playing this week? Oh yeah, the Chiefs! Now there's a test.

Nobody was whining. Who would whine with an 11-3 record? We're BRAGGING--it was some playful aquatic mammal who was doing the whining.

Oh, okay. I am sorry but that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. BTW - The Browns are not my team, I am just so sick of the constant whining. If the Black and Gold is so mighty then no schedule should be tough...

No one is whining. The Steelers are a tough team, and they can handle anything that comes their way. Don't be hating on the Steelers. We have the toughest, most loyal team, and the most loyal fans. Just look at the Terrible Towels during all the AWAY games. And believe me, if you saw the same game I did last week, the officials are definately not on our side. Stop being cry babies because your teams suck. see ya at the Super Bowl. GO STEELERS!!!!!

You're just not getting this, Too Stupid. When you're 11-3 and talking about playing the most difficult schedule in the NFL, then it's called BRAGGING. Even at the beginning of the season, I didn't hear any whining on this forum--we were all talking about how Tomlin was going to be able to use the schedule as a motivator. Looks like we were right.

We haven't really addressed the actual theme of this thread: the Pro Bowl selections. There are definitely some snubs (Smith, Hampton, Woodley), but I think that this whole D is playing so friggin' seamlessly it's hard to pick out individual stars. It's the classic "pick your poison" D. For example, this last game: they made the decision to double and/or relentlessly hold Harrison, but the secondary played brilliantly, and we got lots of pressure from Woodley and sacks from Smith and Farrior. Who the hell needs lots of individual honors? This whole D could play in Hawaii.

I have to admit I admire this years Steelers. I find myself rooting for them now. They know how to close the deal and win with defense like the teams of the past. Plus they beat the Cowboys and Patriots, two teams that love to see lose.
