    In the past 12 years, GB has opened at home 10 times & has been on the road only 2 times.
    Of those 10 games, 6 have been against division foes. Twice each against against MN, CHI & DET.

    [size=13pt]Could the Vikings Be Part of the 2009 Regular Season Opener?[/size]

    As we all know, the Pittsburgh Steelers won their record-setting sixth Super Bowl this past Sunday, as they knocked off the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 in an absolute thriller.
    This also means that the Steelers will begin the season on a Thursday night in Pittsburgh a few days before the rest of the regular season gets underway....

    Looking at the 2009 schedule, the Steelers are slated to have home games against the following teams:

    Baltimore
    Cincinnati
    Cleveland
    Green Bay
    Minnesota
    Oakland
    San Diego
    Tennessee
    When you look at the list I would say it will probably be the Titans or the Vikings.

    How bout Baltimore?
    They had really controversial games against them throughout the season.
    Plus it always draws a crowd.
    One of the roughest games you see all year.

    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    That's actually the matchup that I would like to see most for the opener.

    To many story lines for the NFL not to do this one first:

    Tomlin/Childress
    Pro-Bowl MVP (I hope) vs Steelers
    Super Bowl Champ vs NFLN Division champ
    Etc. etc.

    Hey, we gotta play 'em sometime at Heinz field. May as well be the first game of the season and get it out of the way. We should be as fresh as we can be with no major injuries (although that's always a possibility). I'd love to play them first and be done with one of the toughest games on the schedule.

    I doubt we will be the team

    But if we do that would be great.. Like Cojo said get the tough games outta the way

    WE got an easy schedule so after games like that we should get on a roll
