ESPN’s James Walker has the Steelers’ schedule this week as they prepare for the Super Bowl, which will take place on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Eastern.
The Steelers will touch down in Dallas on Monday afternoon and will meet with the media. The big media blitz, though, will be on Tuesday – that’s media day. On Wednesday and Thursday, the Steelers will practice at TCU, which is in nearby Fort Worth. The players look to be unavailable to the media beginning on Friday.
Tuesday, though, will be the day when we’ll probably get a barrage of pseudo-news. I wonder what it’ll be. The spat among the Packers about their team photo seems to be over. One overlooked angle here is that the Steelers were at the center of the illegal-hits issue throughout much of the season. I haven’t read much about that in the national media’s coverage of the Super Bowl so far. It wouldn’t be a shock if someone like Ryan Clark said something in defense of James Harrison that grabbed headlines on media day.
