Good catch.  Not sure what happened in the copy and paste.  Hmmm.

The third Ravens reference is actually hosting the New England Patriots.

Pretty good schedule.  I think they can realistically win 11. Trouble is that the Pats will win 13.

Hope it all comes together and they play lights out. The talent is there.

I agree, I see 3-4 loses tops!

Watch out for the Titans game!!!

We need to play with a back against the wall attitude from the first snap.

Re: Pittsburgh Steelers 2017 regular season schedule released

Definitely looks like a favorable schedule.  5 home games in the 2nd half of the season, 4 of them against what should be quality opponents (I'm including the Titans in that list).

Hate the Christmas Day game, seems very unfair to the team.

This is probably the best season for a potential Steelers sweep of the Ravens.  The game in Baltimore is after our London trip, and of course Pittsburgh has the advantage in Pittsburgh.

Also, don't underestimate the Vikings or Lions.  Stafford is a different beast at home vs the road

Don't look now but the Ravens are coming........

Good health will take care of everything else. It isn't a question of talent or personnel. The only games where I think they have a good chance of losing before the bye week are away games at Arrowhead and Baltimore, and they won't lose both of those. Looking at that schedule, there is NO REASON why 12/13 wins (or better) isn't possible, provided:

-Ben plays 16 games (15 if he sits out final week because he can)
-Martavis Bryant is reinstated and can stay on the field this year
-The team is able to stay relatively healthy again like last year and not suffer any catastrophic, season ending injuries.

There is NOBODY.............no single player drafted next week............that will improve and help his team on BOTH sides of the ball to the degree that a motivated and dedicated Martavis Bryant will with the Steelers. Scary to think what we've seen from him thus far has largely been a player that just showed up and didn't dedicate himself to conditioning. That isn't the case now.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2GTsBLbYiA

Just hope he can keep it together, he will make this offense damn near impossible to stop, provided they stay healthy. Late December match up vs Pats CAN and SHOULD be for home field throughout the playoffs.

I'll be at the Lions game...sister has seasons tickets and doesn't like Sunday night games...so I'll witness it first hand.  I agree that not only are the Lions better at home, but the Steelers haven't been great on the road the last couple of years.

While the schedule actually looks decent, and I think the Steelers should win 12 games, I don't trust them on the road.

I may be wrong, but I'll go down in a ball of flames before I ever admit it!

They should be able to beat the Packers at home, imo.......Pitts offense should be no match for the Packs defense......

According to Steelers Depot:

BY ALEX KOZORA APRIL 15, 2017 AT 11:43 AM

I know many of you have been asking about Martavis Bryant’s trip to the Big Apple on Thursday. Sporting News’ Alex Marvez provides us with our first update.

According to his report, Bryant did not meet with Roger Goodell but the NFL’s Management Council. The council had some stipulations for Bryant before being considered for reinstatement.

“Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh, the source said.”

Marvez would later go on to say that a meeting with Goodell still has to occur, that’s no surprise, before any official decision is made. It’s looking increasingly unlikely the Pittsburgh Steelers will have an answer to Bryant’s 2017 status before the draft, muddying up their plans and making life – to me, unfairly – more difficult on them. It would’ve been nice for the league to outline these requirements before this meeting, allowing Bryant to get back to the team as soon as possible and in time for offseason workouts.

Bryant applied for reinstatement in late January following his one year suspension, which in theory ended in March, but is still active because Goodell has not officially reinstated him.

Over the past several weeks, Bryant has posted videos of an intense training routine, getting his weight up, and welcoming the birth of another child into the family.

It would make sense for Bryant to be allowed back in, provided he hasn’t failed any drug test since. And for what it’s worth, Marvez’s article ends on an optimistic tone, saying Bryant should be back “soon enough.” Still, for now, the Steelers are forced to continue to operate in a grey area with the only safe assumption being that there’s no guarantee he’ll return.
