Pittsburgh Steelers don't expect to be the New Orleans Saints' season-opening opponent

By Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune

The Pittsburgh Steelers don't expect to be selected as the season-opening opponent for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints on Thursday night, Sept. 9, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Saints, who will host the nationally-televised season opener, are expected to learn their opponent next week.

Steelers President Art Rooney II said he expects his team to open the season at home because scheduling conflicts with baseball's Pittsburgh Pirates will force the Steelers to play on the road in Weeks 2 and 3.
"We won't be playing in New Orleans," Rooney said Thursday. "We have to be home that weekend because of the baseball schedule. Unless they wanted to play us away three weeks in a row, and I don't think they'll do that."

That leaves the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons as the two most attractive matchups on the Saints' home schedule. Their other home opponents are Carolina, Tampa Bay, Seattle, St. Louis and Cleveland.

If it were up to me I would start the season how it ended with a game vs. The SUPER BOWL 44 WORLD CHAMPION NEW ORLEANS SAINTS!!!!! vs the colts. It'll generate money in promotions bring tons of business to the city and it'll kill the favre stuff for the time being + after we demolish the colts I'm sure they'll have time to gawk at those obnoctiously large super bowl rings our boys get!

I'm ok with playing the Viqueens again. What better way to start out the season than to embarrass Grandpa Favre and the Purple Pansies AGAIN! Bring it on!!

Scheduling a bunch of consecutive away games has never stopped the NFL before ... we all can remember a hellacious road stretch not too long ago for our Saints! C'mon, NFL ... make them do it. WE ARE THE SUPERBOWL CHAMPS!

Although i love your enthusiasm I don't want to have my football fever subdued by Favre Watch.... He single handedly went from a player whom i had the utmost respect for to some 1 who i wish would break his collar bone and force him to retire. Harsh very but its year 7 with his limbo games and im tired of it so MOTHER CHUCK FAVRE and I'm stickin to my stance

Sounds fun. But we don't play the Colts in 2010. Maybe in the 2011 Superbowl though.

I have the exact same feelings. Blame it on the media. The Favre Watch bullsh*t drove me absolutely BONKERS last off season. I actually had to stop watching ESPN/NFL Network for a while because that was ALL they talked about.

With that said. I would LOVE to hand the old guy his ass a second time. Because what better way to shut up the critics and Favreaholics than to watch Favre have to retire after the first regular season game because our D-Line embarrased him! Tavaris Jackson, dust off your cleats and put down the clipboard, just in case. (yeah right)
