About Pittsburgh


The Steelers were Established in 1933 as the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their original owner was Art Rooney. The Rooney family has owned the Steelers throughout their entire history. The Steelers have won eight AFC Championships. The Steelers have won six Super Bowls (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 2005 and 2008). Their six Super Bowl wins are the most of any NFL team. Pittsburgh and Dallas are tied for the most Super Bowl appearances at eight. Pittsburgh has won 20 AFC Central and North Championships and have appeared in 27 playoffs.
Oddly enough, the Steelers had only one post-season appearance until 1972, which was 1947. In that playoff they lost to Philadelphia 21-0. So the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers did not score a playoff point until they were 40 years old. Since then they have made the playoffs 26 times in 40 years and won six Super Bowls.
It all turned around for the Steelers in 1969 when Chuck Noll was hired to be the Head Coach. Noll drafted players such as Mel Blount, Mean Joe Greene, Terry Bradshaw, Jack Ham and Franco Harris, all of them Hall of Famers. In 1974, Noll drafted four Hall of Famers in one draft. Lynn Swann, Jack Lambert, John Stallworth and Mike Webster, along with Noll’s earlier draft picks, made the Steelers into a dynasty.
The Steelers of the 1970s won four Super Bowls in six years, the only team ever to do that. They were the first team to win more than three Super Bowls. In the 1970s, the Steelers made the playoffs eight times, in the ‘80s they went four times, in the ‘90s they went six times, in the ‘00s they went six times and have gone twice in two seasons of the ‘10s.
Pittsburgh has hosted a record 11 AFC Championship Games and has appeared in a record 15 of them. They are the New York Yankees or the Boston Celtics of football.
