Schedule to be released/Batch signed

The NFL schedule will be released at 7 p.m. today.

You can bet the Steelers will be featured in a number of prime time games, starting with their opener, which we already know is against Tennessee Thursday night in what should be a rocking Heinz Field.

The interesting thing will be whether or not the league honored the Ravens' request not to play the Steelers in Pittsburgh in prime time.

The Ravens and Steelers figure to be two of the top teams in the AFC again this season and the rivalry screams for prime time matchups each time they play.

© After losing Byron Leftwich over the weekend, the Steelers have signed veteran backup Charlie Batch to a one-year, $895,000 contract.

Goodell will probably reward the crybaby Ravens and make us play there on Monday night

Sounds fine by me. What's right is right. The score board location won't have any barring on the outcome of the game. So when we spank them and make it 4 and 5 times in a row. They can whine about not playing the Steelers at all during Prime Time.
