2010 Pittsburgh Steelers Schedule

Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year: the day when the NFL releases the upcoming season schedule. It's a day when I start making plans and set my own personal schedule for the rest of the year.

Here is your 2010 Pittsburgh Steelers regular season schedule:

A few thoughts:

- With the likely suspension of Ben Roethlisberger, it would have been nice to have the Steelers face Cleveland in the first two weeks.

- Remember how much the media hyped the Brett Favre/Vikings vs. Packers games last season? That will be nothing compared to Byron Leftwich/Steelers vs. Tampa Bay game!

- Interesting Halloween match-up in New Orleans on a Sunday night. How many people will dress up like Kim Kardashian?

- Three home games over the last four weeks could give the Steelers an advantage in the playoff race.

- Santonio Holmes, Alan Faneca, Darrelle Revis and Jason Taylor all return to Pittsburgh as New York Jets on December 19th.

- The schedule is set up to allow Heinz Field to host the January 1st NHL Winter Classic.

- I'm looking into group tickets to attend the Steelers-Dolphins game in Miami. If you're interested in going, please let me know. (Yes, I'm being serious.)

You got your wish - the Steelers will face the Browns during BB's suspension!

The only words that matter are Winter Classic Wooooo! I was at WC '08 in Buffalo and there isn't a chance in hell that I'll miss one here.
