Saving the best for last

The 2015 NFL Regular Season Schedule was announced Tuesday night and the Steelers have a tough road ahead of them, particularly at the end of the season. In the final six weeks of the season the Steelers will face five playoff teams from last year and four of those six finals games are on the road.

Steelers’ Bob Labriola points out that in the NFL, it benefits a team to play their best football at the end of the season, and this season the Steelers better do just that if they want to repeat as AFC North Champs.

Just look over your shoulders honey!

With the news on Monday that Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was purposely skipping the voluntary offseason workouts and planning on holding out for a new contract, I figured that we wouldn’t be hearing from Brown for a while. It wouldn’t be till mid-June for the mandatory minicamps till the Steelers could fine Brown for missing any time and there’s plenty of time to work it out.

Brown took to Twitter on Tuesday night for some quick messages perhaps to let fans know that there is nothing to worry about. You decide.

Cornerback surplus

If you need a cornerback this year you’re in luck apparently. That is according to ESPN’s draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. by way of Scott Brown. The Steelers have hosted eight corners so far in their 25 pre-draft visits and might use their first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft on a corner for the first time since 1997 when the team selected Chad Scott.

The Steelers will hold their pre-draft press conference soon and Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin aren’t likely to reveal anything but it’s getting close to going on the clock and the anticipation to see how the first round shapes up is getting real. Who do you think the Steelers pick first?
