Joining the NFL as the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1933, the team struggled to make an impact for decades. It wasn’t until head coach Chuck Noll came into the picture did they Steelers completely shift their performance. Noll possessed an astounding talent for draft selections and chose many players that would later become Hall of Famers. After Noll was hired, the Steelers became the first team to win four Super Bowls in six years, as well as post a regular season streak of 49 wins from 1971 to 1979. Bill Cowher, who succeeded Noll in 1992, led the team to its fifth Super Bowl title after knocking out the Seattle Seahawks. In 2007, Mike Tomlin became the first African-American coach in Steelers history. He led the Steelers to their sixth Super Bowl title, becoming the youngest NFL coach to do so. The team went to their second Super Bowl under Tomlin’s coaching in 2011, but were unfortunately bested by the Green Bay Packers. All in all, the Steelers have compiled an overall record of 480-305-2, won their division 22 times, and took six out of eight Super Bowl titles. If the Steelers make it to the Super Bowl, you can count on them to come out with the win.
The Steelers have called Heinz Field their home since 2001, when they moved there from Three Rivers Stadium. It stands along the Ohio river, on the Northside of Pittsburgh. The field also makes for a great concert venues, hosting shows from Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, U2, and other huge names in music. 65,050 seats are painted gold and dark gray, to tie into the colors of the team. The Great Hall, located in the east side of the stadium, is Steelers fan heaven. More than 40,000 square feet of Steelers memorabilia is housed there, featuring a timeline of major Steelers achievements, actual lockers from Hall of Fame Steelers players, and their six replica Super Bowl trophies.
Although the Steelers fell short of the playoffs this year, legendary quarterback Ben Roethlisberger feels extremely confident for his final year in his contract. Come on down to Heinz Field with the rest of Steelers Nation to witness some of the best football in the NFL! Touchdown!!Back to top
