NFL Kickoff 2009

It has been a LOOOONG 7 months without the comforts of NFL football!!! But tonight the wait comes to an end as the NFL season officially kicks off in Pittsburgh.

The defending Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers will begin their title defense with a AFC rivalry, when they host the Tennessee Titans.

Watching the Steelers can cause an eight-track flashback. The timeless black uniforms, blitzing linebackers, glassy-eyed gunslinger quarterback and ever-present Lombardi Trophy make the decades between Terry Bradshaw and Ben Roethlisberger melt away.

The Titans’ offense also brings a mellow glow to your mood ring. The Titans run the ball more than half the time, a tactic long forgotten in the Spread Century. The Titans allowed only 234 points last season, but their defense won’t be as stout without defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth blasting through double teams.
The Titans beat the Steelers, 31-17, last season, but 21 Titans points came from short drives or returns after Steelers turnovers.

Thursday’s game will feature power running, hard hitting and lttle scoring. By halftime, you’ll want to listen to “Frampton Comes Alive!” in your conversion van.
