At one time or another, the Steelers have owned many of the Super Bowl records including most recently, the first to win six Super Bowl championships and youngest head coach to win. Also longest play with Harrision's 100-yd interception and Holmes' winning catch as "greatest play" in Super Bowl history. Not to mention in 2005, youngest QB ever to win. Even Tony Dungey would not be in the history books without a playing career in Pittsburgh.

1. What are the other records that the Steelers currently hold?

2. What is your opinion on the way the current system is structured and the fact that no rookie QB ever has won a SB? Although BB came close. If and when a rookie QB wins a SB then that can be analyzed how and why.:tt:

Thats all i found from wikipedia, one thing i found interesting in the article was this:


Things that have yet to happen

In the history of the Super Bowl, the following firsts have yet to occur:

* Snow - Super Bowl IX did have drizzle, and wind, temp reached 46 degrees; Super Bowl XLI that had rain.
* An all-wild card matchup (teams who failed to win their divisions) - Nine wild card teams (since the 1970 merger) have won conference titles, but never two in the same season.
* A shutout - Every Super Bowl participant to date has scored. In four cases the offenses have been shut out while the special teams scored the only points:

Super Bowl VI: The Miami Dolphins finished with 3 points, the fewest in a Super Bowl to date (and the only team to date to fail to score a touchdown).
Super Bowl VII: The Washington Redskins returned a fumble for a touchdown after blocking a field goal attempt.
Super Bowl IX: The Minnesota Vikings recovered a blocked punt in the end zone.
Super Bowl XXXV: The New York Giants scored on a 97-yard kickoff return.

* A punt return touchdown - While many kickoffs have been returned for a touchdown, a punt has yet to be returned for one.
* Home field advantage (playing in one's own home stadium) - The closest instances to this have been Super Bowl XIV (with the Los Angeles Rams 30 miles from Anaheim Stadium) at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and Super Bowl XIX (featuring the 49ers from nearby San Francisco) being played at Stanford Stadium which is about 25 miles south of the 49ers' home stadium, Candlestick Park.
* Two teams from the same metropolitan area: one city currently has two franchises: New York City has the Giants and the Jets. (In the past Los Angeles was home to the Raiders and the Rams, but both teams left town in 1996.) Also two pairs of teams share a common metropolitan area, although they are based in different cities: the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Redskins; as well as the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders. Every team mentioned above has won a Super Bowl, but never against its neighbor.
* Overtime - The narrowest margin of victory in a Super Bowl is one point, in Super Bowl XXV (1991). The closest instances to overtime, in which the result of the last play of the game could have realistically led to a tie and thus an overtime, have been:

Super Bowl V: Baltimore's Jim O'Brien kicked a game-winning field goal with :05 left.
Super Bowl XXXIV: Tennessee's Kevin Dyson was stopped one yard short of a tying touchdown.
Super Bowl XXXVI: New England's Adam Vinatieri kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired.
Super Bowl XXXVIII: New England's Adam Vinatieri kicked a game-winning field goal with :04 left.
There have also been two instances in which the trailing team scored a late, go-ahead touchdown when a field goal could have tied the score: SB XXIII, the San Francisco 49ers scored with 34 seconds left to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 20-16 when a field goal would have tied it at 16; and SB XLII, the New England Patriots scored a late touchdown to take a 14-10 lead when a field goal would have tied the game at 10, even though the Giants would later retake the lead on a touchdown of their own. Similarly, in SB XLIII, the Pittsburgh Steelers, trailing the Arizona Cardinals 23-20 in the final minute of play, conducted a drive capped by a touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes to make the score 27-23 Pittsburgh with 0:35 left; the Steelers were in field goal range at the time.

* An appearance by every team - Five teams have yet to reach their first Super Bowl: Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the New Orleans Saints.
* A team winning without a touchdown - Every Super Bowl champion to date has scored at least one touchdown in their efforts (New York Jets scored only one touchdown in their Super Bowl III triumph).
* No touchdowns scored - In every Super Bowl to date, there have been at least two touchdowns scored (Fewest combined - 2, in Super Bowl III).

Only because Kuhn wasn't on the roster!

What about Fans at the game. XL had to be the most lopsided fan situation in a Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh also holds the record for most Cleveland/Cinci fans to jump on the bandwagon while still being big Cavs/Indians/Buckeye fans and pretending they were always Steelers fans

NBC went out of their way with camera angles and audio manipulation to mask the heavy presence of Steeler Nation at XLIII. I bet it was actually closer to the 90% that was reportedly at XL than people realize.

It's probably not in the official stats, but I'm pretty sure Greg Lloyd holds the record for having the most people hear you dropping an M-F bomb on national television after the AFC championship game, which was pretty awesome IMO.
