About The Pittsburgh Steelers
Owners of several great records, the Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At present they are members of the Northern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC), in the National Football League (NFL).
Originally called the Pittsburgh Pirates, the club was renamed the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1941 after the prominent steel industry of the city. The Steelers joined the NFL as 1933 expansion teams, after Art Rooney Sr. paid a fee of $2,500. Since 2001, they play their home games at Heinz Field, and their team colors are black and gold.
The Steelers have been featured in six Super Bowls and have won five of them. The games won were one of the three teams which include the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, to have won as many as five Super Bowls.
Their victories came in 1974 (IX), 1975 (X), 1978 (XII), 1979 (XIV), and 2005 (XL). The Steelers have also appeared in 13 Conference Championship Games, winning six. In NFL playoff history, they are the only team to win a Super Bowl after being seeded sixth in the playoffs. In the process, they won three consecutive games on the road followed by a Super Bowl victory in Detroit on February 5, 2006.
The Steelers could register just three winning records from 1942 to 1949. During this period, Bill Dudley was their best player who later entered the Hall of Fame. The team’s performance was so bad from 1950 to 1957 that they failed to produce a winning record. The Steelers staged a brief comeback between 1958 and 1963, when they finished the 1962 season with a 9-5 win-loss record. It was followed by a 7-4 record in 1963 with eight consecutive losing campaigns from 1964 to 1971.
Then, came the golden period of the 1970's which resulted in the Steelers winning four Super Bowls; under head coach Chuck Noll, the team comprised several future Hall of Fame members including Terry Bradshaw, “Mean” Joe Greene, Franco Harris, Jack Ham and Jack Lambert.
In 1970 they moved to their new home in Three Rivers Stadium and chose quarterback Terry Bradshaw of Louisiana Tech as the number one pick in the NFL draft. In 1972, Chuck Noll led the Steelers to the team’s first division title ever. It marked the beginning of a new era in which the team won seven Central Division championships (including six in a row) and four Super Bowls.
Noll organized a well-balanced offense featuring Bradshaw, Franco Harris, center Mike Webster, and wide receivers John Stallworth and Lynn Swann. The defense was also so strong that it came to be known as the Steel Curtain.
Founder Art Rooney died in 1988, having owned the Steelers for 55 years. His son Daniel M. Rooney succeeded him as the franchise president.
