The AFC North side, who missed out on a place in last season's playoffs, lost all four of their pre-season games.
The head coach told the team's website: "I am excited about the start of the 2013 season. Preparation has already begun. We had a very productive day here at the South Side facility. We had a bonus-type day.
"We introduced some core things regarding our plan, introducing our guys to the matchups and significant matchups that could be important in terms of determining the outcome of the game.
"I like our preparation. We are focused on what is going to be required for us to do to win this weekend. We're going to take a business-like approach to it like we did in the pre-season."
The Steelers play the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
