The Steelers have been representing the Steel City of Pittsburgh on the football field for over 80 years. Any franchise that has survived the ups and downs of all these years is bound to have a history marked by periods of great success and periods of great struggle. Luckily for fans in Pittsburgh, it seems that the days of struggle are long behind them.
While the Pittsburgh Steelers started off by making the playoffs only once between 1933 and 1971, they have gone on to the postseason 30 times since. Racking up 23 Division championships, eight Conference championships, and six Super Bowl victories, the Steelers have experienced a kind of success that sets them apart from the other teams in the league.
Widely famous around the NFL for their dominant teams of the 1970s which included several Hall of Fame players, the Steel Curtain punished the opposition with a kind of force we do not find in today’s game. The players that made up this famous defensive line were “Mean” Joe Greene, LC Greenwood, Ernie Holmes, and Dwight White. They, along with legendary players including Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Mel Blount, Jack Lambert, and Jack Ham combined to bring four Super Bowl titles to Pittsburgh under head coach Chuck Noll.
Upon his retirement in 1991, the Steelers hired Bill Cowher as the new head coach. Cowher, a former NFL player with a tough exterior, expected greatness out of his players. Playing smash mouth football, the Steelers teams under Cowher were known for defensive dominance and a punishing run first offense. His tenure culminated with a Super Bowl victory in 2005 over the Seattle Seahawks. Innovative play calling (such as wide receiver Antwaan Randle-El passing for a touchdown) and heavy running (including a 75 yard run by Willie Parker) brought the title back to Steel City. Hines Ward took home the MVP trophy as both Cowher and Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis rode off into the sunset as champions. Franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger started his career with a Super Bowl win in his rookie season.
The task of replacing Cowher brought the Steelers to interview several candidates including the defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings. Despite only one year of experience at the coordinator spot, Mike Tomlin impressed the management in Pittsburgh so much that they made him their new head coach. Retaining many of the same assistants that were present under Cowher, Tomlin sought to keep the Super Bowl mentality strong among his new team. This attitude proved fruitful as he brought them back to the big game in 2008, becoming the youngest head coach ever to win a Super Bowl. This game is best remembered for an interception return for a touchdown before the end of the first half by linebacker James Harrison and the last minute touchdown caught by Santonio Holmes in the corner of the end zone as he was amazingly able get his toes down in bounds. Tomlin led his team to the Super Bowl again in 2010, but were defeated by the Green Bay Packers. They have been on the hunt for their next ring ever since.
Following the respectable (but not playoff-worthy) record of 9-6-1 last season, there is great anticipation for redemption in 2019. The Steelers are always primed for another postseason appearance under the leadership of veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. In his 16th season under center, Big Ben has hinted at retirement, but when he looks at the talent around him, it is hard to hang up the helmet and cleats. Running back James Conner exploded onto the scene last year for the Steelers and really made a name for himself in the backfield. He will return as the starter this season.
JuJu Smith-Schuster put up incredible numbers last season. Second year wide out James Washington can’t wait to have a bigger impact this year and the addition of Donte Moncrief only adds to the depth at this position. Vance McDonald is also a beast in the tight end spot. The offensive line, featuring Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, and Alejandro Villanueva do a great job giving Ben time and space in the pocket.
A Week 2 injury to his throwing arm spelled the end of the 2019 season for Roethlisberger as he was placed on IR and would need surgery on his elbow. Second year quarterback Mason Rudolph will lead the charge through the rest of the campaign.
The defensive squad has received contributions from players such as Cameron Heyward, TJ Watt, Bud Dupree, Joe Haden, Sean Davis, and Jason Hargrove, who are all vital to the continued success of this franchise. Terrell Edmunds joined the Steelers via the NFL Draft last season as a first round pick and has become a starter at safety. Linebacker Devin Bush, taken number 10 overall in 2019, hopes to reach the top of the depth chart this year as well.
A legendary franchise, the Steelers have had the privilege of being the team to employ some incredibly talented players such as Troy Polamalu, Jerome Bettis, Rod Woodson, and Hines Ward.
