I say the 97 team.........They went 11-5 but the last game was a giveaway.........They lost 2 games by a feild goal........They lost to the Broncos in the Conf Champ. by a feild goal.........That was a tough team.....

So was the 94 team......I still can't beleive Pupuno scored on that terrible pass...........

04 team blew it in the championship game, it wasnt even close........

i went 94 because of rod woodson (and no disrespect to jerome).

as for 2001 we had the #1 ranked defense and #3 ranked offense. oddly enough if we woulda faced the rams in the SB, they had the #1 ranked offense and #3 defense.

woulda been a hell of a match up.

In 94 we would have lost to San Fran I 97 we would have crushed the Packers.....Do the math

people actually voted for 1997? lmao.

ATTENTION: the steelers didn't have a QB in 1997.

i chose 1994

In 94 we would have lost to San Fran I 97 we would have crushed the Packers.....Do the math

actually many predicted the steelers had the best chance of beating the 49ers than any other team. i seriously doubt the steelers would beat the packers with kordell as the QB.

Gotta say 2004.

Strongest all around team Cowher put on the field IMO. A shame our QB wasn't a couple years into his career already, or we'd be sitting here talking about wanting the 4th SB.

The 2004 Steelers without a doubt. Too bad our QB was just too young.

94 was the most talented Steelers team since 1979, and remains so (imo) despite 2 subsequent SB win's since. The AFC championship loss to the Chargers might have been the worst in franchise history. :doh: If you replayed those two teams 99 more times the Steelers win every one of them.:banging:

That's not really relevant imo. Just because the 94 team would have been matched up against one of history greatest teams and quite likely would have lost doesn't mean it wasn't far superior to the 97 team. Player for player the 94 team was more talented with just one or two excpetions ( 97 team had the Bus) therefore for the sake of this discussion it was the better team.

I say it was 2004. The talent on that team was amazing. It was a shame they couldn't put it all together at the end.

If I had to order them, it would be:

2004 - If only Ben had been a year older and more experienced.
1994 - If only we could have gotten 3 more yards. My most painful playoff loss to date.
1995 - This team was better than we give them credit for. They should have beaten Dallas. It's too bad that Rod was hurt.
1997 - Up 14-10 and Gailey got greedy with that deep pass in the end zone. That turned the tide right there
2001 - I never felt this team was as good as it's record.

Don't forget the 1992 team. That team was pretty good too.

I agree with 95. We pretty much punched Dallas in the face, ran the ball at will on them, shut down Emitt the entire game, gave Aikmen fits and had scored 10 unanswered points, forced a 3 and out and got the ball back with 4 mins to go from our own 32 yard line.

Then Neil blew it. for the second time in the game, he killed us.

Copied from Wiki
The Steelers had outgained the Cowboys in total yards, 310-254, had 25 first downs compared to the Cowboys 15, and limited Dallas' powerful running attack to just 56 yards. However, they were unable to overcome O'Donnell's interceptions, which led to two Cowboy touchdowns. The irony of the game was that O'Donnell entered Super Bowl XXX as the NFL's career leader in fewest interceptions per pass attempt.

That is the same team that destroyed the Bills in the playoffs 40-20.

I go with 2004, they had the best record in Steelers history, we watched our future franchise QB come about, and they had an awesome team all around.

1994- We wouldn't have beaten the Niners. That 1994 Niners team was on a mission to prove they could beat Dallas and win without Joe.

1997- What people forget is the Pack were the defending Super Bowl Champions with Favre in his prime. Kordell vs Favre? I dunno.

2001- This team's defense was overrated especially in the secondary. It has sliced by Jon Kitna to the tune of 411 yards that year and the next year the bottom fell out. Burnt, Charred, Flowers, and Washington vs. Kurt Warner and the Greatest Show on turf indoors? I don't think so.

2004- Ben hit the rookie wall. If he was just a year older, we would've beaten the Pats and Eagles. Again.

2004 without a doubt. Every other year, we were obviously missing one piece of the puzzle. In 2004, we were pretty much unstoppable and then had one bad game.

Who the hell are all these people that are saying "Oh, we would've beaten the 49ers in 1994 if we'd made it," and what sport were they watching? That was one of the best 49ers teams of all time, and they were on a huge roll. They were crushing people by 30 points all season long and giving up like 70 yards a game on the ground. They would've beaten the dogshit out of the Steelers too. We would've had a much better chance in 1995-97.

I love this poll! I went with 2004 because when you have the league's best defense, 2nd rushing attack, and do i daresay, possibly the best season ever turned in by a rookie QB (Yup, right up there with Marino), then you can do some serious shit.

Have to agree.....Cant do much better than 15-1 for the season!

I would have said 2004 if not for the fact that Ben was a rookie (and there's a reason no rookie QB has gotten past the championship game). Although they may very well have been better in 1994, they made the SB in 1995 and SHOULD have won the damn thing.

I still miss that year and that team.

94 team had better running team...95 had better passing team...94 had better defense so i'd say 94 by a shade

I went with 1995. Only a couple Corey Holliday routes away from a SB win.
