September 24, 1978,

One of the more heated games in the history of the Steelers/Browns rivalry, Lynn Swann survived a full speed shoulder to the neck shot by a Cleveland Browns back when he spreads out to catch a go-ahead score. The hit is so vicious that the TV announcer, Dick Enberg can be heard to scream in horror, but Swann held onto the ball. Pittsburgh's Steel Curtain defense was also quite vicious, earning four personal fouls in the game. In the final seconds of regulation, Jack Lambert exploded into the Cleveland backfield to push the Browns back out of field goal range and save the game for overtime 9-9. In overtime Bradshaw calls a "flea flicker" play, Bradshaw to Bleier to Swann to Bradshaw to Cunningham, that stuns Cleveland for a 15-9 loss.

MIKE WAGNER - #23 (S) 1971 - 1980

http://www.bestsportsphotos.com/images/football/wagner-mike-pbs-2.jpg

Mike Wagner was drafted out of Western Illinois in the 11th round of the 1971 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wagner was a member of the famed Steel Curtain defense, appeared in two Pro Bowls--in 1975 and 1976--and played in four Super Bowls, recording an intercepetion in Super Bowl X. He led the NFL with 8 interceptions in 1973 and finished his career with a total of 36, which he returned for 491 yards. He also recovered 11 fumbles, and was a starter every year of his career until he retired in 1980.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mike Wagner last year during a charity event - very nice guy and ladies - not hard on the eyes either. :wink02:

http://www.bestsportsphotos.com/images/football/dungy-tony-pbs-1.jpg

Tony Dungy wore #21 for the Steelers in 1977 and 1978. A quarterback in college, he converted to nickel back in the NFL. In spite of not being a starter, he was one of the most valuable contributors to the '78 Steeler championship. He led the team in interceptions with six and forced a special-teams fumble that helped the Steelers put Super Bowl XIII out of reach. Dungy is also the last player to both throw an interception and make one in the same game, as a result of being Pttsburgh's emergency quarterback. Dungy was known for having a great mind for football, a point emphasized by his teammates in the "America's Game" series.

After finishing his playing career with the 49ers in 1979, Dungy went into coaching. In 1984 Chuck Noll made him the NFL's youngest coordinator. Dungy would have to wait over a decade for an NFL coaching job, due in part to racial prejudice but also because of his insistence on putting his family ahead of his job. He finally got his opportunity with the moribund Tampa Bay fanchise, which he quickly turned into a contender. He took the Bucs to the NFC championship game in 1999, but was fired after the 2001 season for "not being able to win the big one".

He was immediately hired by the Indianapolis Colts, who had fired Jim Mora for the same reason. After a few seasons of frustration at the hands of New England, the Colts seemed ready to win the Super Bowl XL, winning their first 13 games. But an upset by the eventual Super Bowl Champion Steelers ended those hopes. The 2005 season was marked by tragedy--the suicide of Dungy's 18 year old son James.

In 2006, the Colts finally won the big game. The AFC Championship Game against their nemesis, the Patriots, appeared to be another postseason disaster at first, as New England jumped out to a huge early lead. But the Colts fought back to win one of the most exciting playoff games in history and went on to defeat the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI.

Dungy was the first black coach to win a Super Bowl. In spite of shattering an ugly stereotype, he downplayed the significance of the milestone, choosing to focus on his identity as a Christian coach and taking pride in proving it was possible to win by "doing it God's way". Dungy's approach has convinced many owners, as evidenced by his impressive coaching tree. Dungy disciples in the NFL include Detroit's Rod Marinelli, Chicago's Lovie Smith, and our own Mike Tomlin.

Dungy himself takes great pride in his history with the Steelers. He identifies himself with Chick Noll's coaching tree, and in an appearance on David Letterman, he showed off both his Colts and Steelers Super Bowl rings. Dungy is one of just three men to win a Super Bowl ring as both a player and a head coach.

MIKE TOMCZAK - #18 (QB) 1993 - 1999

http://forumimages.footballguys.com/uploads/photo-26915.jpg

Mike Tomczak went undrafted out of college and signed as an original free agent with the Chicago Bears. He started no games his first year but did earn a Super Bowl ring, and saw playing time in Super Bowl XX on January 26, 1986, during the fourth quarter of the Bears' 46-10 win over the New England Patriots.

He played for the Bears until 1990 starting 31 games and throwing for 31 touchdowns and 47 interceptions. After spending a year at Green Bay and another at Cleveland, he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers and spent seven seasons with the team, starting for much of the 1996 season and helping to guide the team into the playoffs. He also started occasionally throughout his last three seasons with the Steelers, spelling the inconsistent Kordell Stewart for long stretches of the year in 1999.

After his contract with Pittsburgh was not renewed, he signed with the Detroit Lions in 2000 but suffered a broken right tibia in an exhibition game against the Oakland Raiders. After being forced to sit out the entire season, he retired from football, the last remaining active player from the '85 Bears team.

For his career, Tomczak has 73 starts, completed 55.3% of his passes for 88 touchdowns and 106 interceptions.

TERRY BRADSHAW - #12 (QB) 1970 - 1983

http://www.opengroup.com/sports/images/(SC)Terry_Bradshaw_Photo.jpg

Terry Bradshaw was the first player selected in the 1970 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. In a six-year span, he won an unprecedented four Super Bowl titles with Pittsburgh (1975, 1976, 1979 and 1980), becoming the first quarterback to do so, and led the Steelers to eight AFC Central championships. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989 in his first year of eligibility.

A tough competitor, Bradshaw had a powerful ? albeit at times erratic ? throwing arm and called his own plays throughout his pro career. His physical skills and on-the-field leadership played a major role in Pittsburgh sports history. Bradshaw also excelled in big games. During his career, he passed for more than 300 yards in a game only seven times, but three of those performances came in post-season play, two of them in Super Bowls. In four career Super Bowls he passed for an impressive 932 yards and 9 touchdowns, both Super Bowl records at the time of his retirement. In 19 postseason games he completed 261 passes for 3,833 yards.
Terry Bradshaw was the first player selected in the 1970 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bradshaw became a starter one year after he was drafted in 1970. During his first several seasons, the 6'3", 215 lb. quarterback was erratic, threw many interceptions (he threw 210 interceptions over the course of his career) and was widely ridiculed by the media for his rural roots and perceived lack of intelligence.

It took Bradshaw a few seasons to adjust to the pro game but once he did, he eventually became the premier quarterback in the NFL, leading the Steelers to eight AFC Central championships and an unprecedented collection of Super Bowl rings. The Steelers featured the "Steel Curtain" defense and a powerful running attack led by Franco Harris, but Bradshaw's strong arm gave them the threat of the deep pass, helping to loosen opposing defenses. In 1972, he threw the pass leading to the "Immaculate Reception", among the most famous plays in NFL history.

Bradshaw temporarily lost the starting job to Joe Gilliam in 1974, but Bradshaw took over again during the regular season and in the 1974 AFC Championship Game against the Oakland Raiders, his fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Lynn Swann proved to be the winning score in a 24-13 victory. In the Steelers? 16-6 Super Bowl IX victory over the Minnesota Vikings that followed, Bradshaw completed 9 of 14 passes and his fourth-quarter touchdown pass put the game out of reach and helped take the Steelers to their first Super Bowl victory.

As he acknowledged in his first autobiography, Man of Steel, by 1974 Bradshaw felt like he was bottoming out. His first marriage to Melissa Babish had failed, his shoulder had been injured, and he was often sullen and depressed. The turnaround came when, according to his memoir, Bradshaw, already a born-again Christian, had a revelation: "I had separated myself from God. I lived only for Terry Bradshaw, not for God. I tried to be one of the boys and went to every honky-tonk I could find and chased women and behaved in a way that was totally alien to anything I had ever known before ? my whole life was out of control ? I was trying to be someone else and was doing a rotten job of it."

What happened to Bradshaw amounted to a second "conversion" experience. "I just put my head in my hands and began to cry and tremble all over and finally I blurted out, 'Here I am, God. I've tried to handle it all by myself and I just can't get the job done. So I'm placing my life in Your hands. I need some peace of mind and I know You can give it to me.'" The quarterback recalls feeling suddenly "stronger mentally and physically.? Being a starting quarterback didn't matter.? What mattered was that I was myself again and I was determined to stay that way."

In Super Bowl X following the 1975 season, Bradshaw threw for 209 yards, most of them to Swann, as the Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys, 21-17. His 64-yard touchdown pass to Swann?released a split-second before defensive tackle Larry Cole flattened him, causing a serious concussion?late in the fourth quarter is considered one of the greatest passes in NFL history.

Neck and wrist injuries in 1976 forced Bradshaw to miss four games. He was sharp in a 40-14 victory over the Baltimore Colts, completing 14-of-18 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns, but the Steelers' hopes of a three-peat ended with a 24-7 loss to Oakland in the AFC Championship game.

Bradshaw had his finest season in 1978 when he was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player by the Associated Press after a season in which he completed 207 of 368 passes for 2,915 yards and a league-leading 28 touchdown passes. He was also named All-Pro and All-AFC that year.

Before Super Bowl XIII, a Steelers-Cowboys rematch, Cowboys linebacker Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson famously ridiculed Bradshaw by saying, "He couldn't spell 'cat' if you spotted him the 'c' and the 't'." Bradshaw got his revenge by winning the Most Valuable Player award, completing 17 of 30 passes for a then-record 318 yards and four touchdowns in a 35-31 win. Years later, Henderson, who struggled for years to conquer drug addiction, admitted he was high on cocaine at the time of the interview. Bradshaw has in later years made light of the ridicule with quips such as "it's football, not rocket science."

Bradshaw won his second straight Super Bowl MVP in 1979 in Super Bowl XIV. He passed for 309 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 31-19 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Bradshaw also shared the Sports Illustrated magazine's "Sportsmen of the Year" award with Willie Stargell that season.

After two seasons of missing the playoffs, Bradshaw played through pain - he needed a cortisone shot before every game because of an elbow injury sustained during training camp - in a strike-shortened 1982 NFL season. He still managed to tie for the most touchdown passes in the league with 17. In a 31-28 playoff loss to the San Diego Chargers - Bradshaw's last postseason game - he completed 28-of-39 passes for 325 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

After undergoing offseason elbow surgery, Bradshaw was idle for the first 14 games of the 1983 NFL season. Then against the New York Jets, he felt a pop in his elbow while throwing his final pass, a touchdown. Bradshaw later left the game and never played again. The two touchdowns Bradshaw threw in what would be the final football game played at Shea Stadium allowed him to finish his career with two more touchdowns (212) than interceptions (210) for his career.

In his 14-season career, Bradshaw completed 2,025 of 3,901 passes for 27,989 yards and 212 touchdowns. He also rushed 444 times for 2,257 yards and 32 touchdowns. He was 107-51 as the starting quarterback and the Steelers reached the playoffs 10 times. His career postseason record as a starter was 14-5. He was also selected to play in three Pro Bowl games.

While the Steelers do not officially retire uniform numbers, Bradshaw's number 12 has not been issued by the team since he retired, and it is generally understood that no Steeler will wear that number in the foreseeable future.

In 1999, he was ranked number 44 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players. :tt02::tt02::tt02:
