    Default Steelers Announce 2011 Preseason Schedule

    If there is a pre-season!.....

    Steelers Announce 2011 Preseason Schedule
    4-12-2011

    The Steelers will play one nationally televised preseason game during the 2011 preseason, a Thursday night matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, and will also host the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced today.

    The Steelers will open the 2011 preseason on the road vs. the Washington Redskins, the fifth straight preseason matchup between the teams at FedEx Field. The Steelers are 5-13-1 all-time in the preseason against the Redskins in the preseason series that started in 1967. The game will be televised locally on KDKA-TV.

    The Steelers host the Eagles in a nationally televised contest on Thursday, Aug. 18 (Week 2), at Heinz Field. The game will kick off at 8 p.m. and will be televised on FOX (locally WPGH-TV). It marks the first preseason matchup between the teams since 2008.

    Pittsburgh plays its second of back-to-back preseason home games with a Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, which will be televised on KDKA-TV. The two teams have not played a preseason game in Pittsburgh since 1978. The Steelers hosted the Falcons in the 1998 preseason in a game played in Morgantown, W.Va.

    The Steelers will conclude the preseason on the road vs. the Carolina Panthers, the ninth consecutive year the two teams will play in the preseason finale. The game also will be televised locally by KDKA-TV.

    The times and dates for the three games to be televised on KDKA-TV have yet to be finalized.

    Following is a look at the Steelers’ 2011 preseason schedule:

    ... I could be wrong, but it seems that we've played Wash, Phl, and Carolina quite a bit in preseason games over recent years. Not much of a variety...

    2010: Carolina
    2009: Wash, Carolina
    2008: Phl, Carolina
    2007: Wash, Phl, Carolina
    2006: Phl, Carolina
    2005: Wash, Phl, Carolina
    2004: Phl, Carolina
    2003: Phl, Carolina
    2002: Wash
    2001: none
    2000: Wash, Carolina
    1999: Wash, Carolina
    1998: Phl, Carolina

    ... And it goes back for quite a while further.... Not that any of it matters, but it just seems that there is not too much variance... Philly I can see, Wash maybe, and Carolina because of the coaching history... But I guess I'd just like to see something different once in a while, not that it matters....

    I agree with that analysis as well.... But if so, why do we not see Buffalo or the NY teams more?... Like I said, it really doesn't matter to me too much, but just an observation since it's a slow day.

    Preseason is only worth watching because by then I am football starved.

    I've always claimed that it is worth watching because you are getting a feel for the "back-ups" that will come in upon injury, and who to expect... I've enjoyed pre-season games more than alot of folks I know...

    ... But I seriously doubt that we have any this year... I dunno... Could be wrong, and hope so...

    I'm thinking Sunny Harris takes a big step foward this season. If he does, that would be a big boost to the D-Line. That's who I am keeping an eye on. He has all the physical tools to get it done.
