Pittsburgh Steelers Team History


Pittsburgh Steelers history in the National Football League ( NFL ) supplied by Sports Pool .com. Sports Pool .com the best NFL football office pools on the net.

Th Pittsburgh Steelers were founded by Arthur J. Rooney on July 8, 1933. Now the sixth-oldest franchise in the NFL, the Pittsburgh team was known as the Pirates until 1940. The Steelers struggled for their first 40 years without winning a championship of any kind until they won the AFC Central division title in 1972. Two years later, the entire sports world cheered when Art Rooney, one of world's most popular sports figures, received the Vince Lombardi Trophy after the Steelers' victory in Super Bowl IX. After so many years of frustration, the 1970s Steelers began one of the most incredible streaks in sports history when they earned eight consecutive playoff berths, seven AFC Central titles and four AFC championships from 1972 to 1979. The Steelers became the first team to win four Super Bowls and the only team to win back-to-back Super Bowls twice. The team of the decade of the 1970s became the first AFC team to win its division 10 times since the NFL's 1970 merger.

Pittsburgh Steelers Chronological History



In 1933, Art Rooney purchased an NFL franchise for $2,500. Over the next eight decades, the Pittsburgh Steelers have become a beloved part of the city, bringing so many great moments to the league and the Steel City.

1933 - The Pittsburgh Steelers were originally called the Pirates, after their Major League Baseball counterparts.

1934 - The Pirates win 2 of their first 3 games, but those wins end up being the only wins on the season as the Pirates suffer a miserable 2-10 season, in which they were shut out 5times, and only scored more than 10 runs 3 times.

1940 - The Pirates are renamed from Pirates to the Steelers. The team had a tough time in the early days and posted only three winning records from 1942 to 1949. They also failed to produce a winning record from 1950 to 1957.

1942 -The Steelers season dose not start off good as they lose their first 2 games, but led by Rookie RB Bill Dudley who led the NFL in rushing the Steelers posted a 7-4 record, earning their first winning season in franchise history.

1943 - With World War II fully under way the Steelers are among many teams struggling to find players, with many of their regulars off fighting the war. For the Steelers these players missing included Bill Dudley. Faced with not being able to field a team the Steelers struck a deal to merge with Philadelphia Eagles. The two teams would split alternate home games and coaches, and would officially be known as the Phil-Pitt Steagles combing the two teams' names

1946 - In his first full season back from the war, RB Bill Dudley earns MVP honors by leading the league in rushing, interceptions, and punt returns. However, the Steelers who were in playoff contention all season drop 3 of their final 4 games to finish with a 5-5-1 record.

1954 - The Steelers get off to a solid start winning 4 of their first 5 games, including an impressive 55-27 win at Forbes Field over the eventual NFL Champion Cleveland Browns. However, the wins would not come in the 2nd half as the Steelers lost 6 of their last 7 games to finish with a 5-7 record.

1955 - Owner Art Rooney uses a 20th round draft pick to select QB Johnny Unitas, just because he wanted to select a Pittsburgh native. However, in training camp Unitas is never given a chance and released. He would remerge a few years later with Baltimore Colts, and would become one of the greatest Quarterbacks of all-time. Perhaps the Steelers could have used Unitas as they struggled again finishing with a woeful 4-8 record.

1963 - With the departure of QB Bobby Layne, Ed Brown fills in and has a terrific season passing for 2,982 yards, while connecting on 21 TD passes. However, the Steelers are never quite in the race as they finish in the middle of the pack with a 7-4-3 record.

1964 - After 5 season of splitting their games between Forbes Field, and Pitt Stadium, the Steelers shift to play all their games at Pitt Stadium

1970 - The Steelers move to Three Rivers Stadium. Steelers selected QB Terry Bradshaw in the draft and he was made the starter right away as the Steelers lost to the Houston Oilers 19-7 in the first game ever at Three Rivers Stadium. The rest of the season did not go much better as the Steelers finished with a 5-9 record, while Bradshaw had an awful rookie season throwing 24 interceptions to just 6 TD passes.

1972 - The Steelers win their first division title, ushering in a decade long winning streak. The Immaculate Reception was born. Franco Harris' catch entered immediately into football myth and gave the Steelers an unforgettable playoff victory—their first ever—over the Raiders

1973 - The Steelers seized the momentum for the "Immaculate Reception", and got off to a terrific start winning 8 of their first 9 games. However, a costly 3 game losing streak would put their playoff hopes in jeopardy. The Steelers would recover to win their last 2 games, but had to settle for a Wild Card berth with a 10-4 record. The Steelers would get bounced in the Playoff right away losing to the Raiders 33-14 in Oakland.

1974 - The Steelers win their first Super Bowl by beating the Minnesota Vikings 16-6 in Super Bowl IX.

1975 - Pittsburgh Steelers win the Super Bowl again this time versus the Dallas Cowboys defeating them 21-17 in Super Bowl X.

1979 - Pittsburgh Steelers win Super Bowl XIII again beating the Dallas Cowboys 35-31. Terry Bradshaw passed for a record 4 touchdowns to lead the Steelers to victory. The Steelers became the first team to win three Super Bowls, mostly because of Bradshaw’s accurate arm. Bradshaw, voted the game’s Most Valuable Player,

1980 - Pittsburgh Steelers win Super Bowl XIV this time defeating the Los Angeles Rams 31-19. Terry Bradshaw completed 14 of 21 passes for 309 yards and set two passing records as the Steelers became the first team to win four Super Bowls. Bradshaw, the game’s MVP for the second straight year, set career Super Bowl records for most touchdown passes (9) and most passing yards (932).

1994 - The Steelers win the first of three consecutive division crowns.

1995 - The Pittsburgh Steelers lose Super Bowl XXX to the Cowboys 27-17 on the strength of Cornerback Larry Brown’s two interceptions that led to 14 second-half points and helped lift the Cowboys.

1996 - The Steelers win the AFC Central Division and go on to defeat the Indianapolis Colts 42-14 in the playoffs but eventually lose to the Patriots 28-3.

2000 - The last regular-season Steelers game at Three Rivers Stadium played Saturday, Dec. 16 against the Washington Redskins.
