The Steel Curtain. Consistent pressure from 4 down linemen. :tt04:
Greene, Greenwood, White, and Holmes were beasts. :tt:
I always loved Holmes' sick grin. Can only imagine what he said during a game.
Mike Wagner's description of him has always stuck with me, "I think he truly enjoyed hurting people."
Thanks for the great memories! :tt03:

On NFL Network right now

Here's the part to reflect on while watching the 1974 Steelers win it all: That team dominated, but almost amazingly, was still loaded with four rookie future hall of famers and a future all-pro, Donnie Shell, who played special teams that year.

As a kid, I still vividly remember the post-game interview in the locker room with Mr. Rooney, and Chuck Noll. They were all huddled around a small locker room with then commissioner Rozelle presenting the Lombardi trophy. At one point, the announcer leaned the mike over to the ever stoic Chuck Noll, and asked him what do you aim for now that your team has won it all? Everyone probably expected a stock answer of well, we'll try our best next year; or whatever; but Noll took little time responding with a clear, almost ominous tone to the rest of the NFL and said simply, "This team has not yet peaked."

as I recall, the Chief held-aloft the Lombardi Trophy, then passed it around the room, but he clutched the game-ball, awarded to him by Andy Russell, for dear-life

again, going strictly from memory, I believe Noll said 'you ain't seen nothin'-yet', a popular Bachmann-Turner Overdrive, released late in the 1974 season:
I often wonder how-surprised some of the players were to know that Noll was aware of that song

lol, well, I guess our respective memories are a little bit different on this subject; but, hey, they say memory is the second thing that goes........:chuckle:

I didn't mean to imply that 'I am right, you are wrong' at-all ~ those 2 images (Chief holding the game-ball, and Noll acknowledging a popular song) are how I recall that very-memorable celebration getting started

I'm probably wrong myself

I don't believe Noll said, "you ain't seen nothing yet." That wasn't Chuck.
I'm almost positive that he said something very similar to:
"This team hasn't peaked yet" or "I don't think this team has reached its full potential."
Either way, he was right!
And, we were lucky enough to see it.
As time goes on, and as the NFL changes (for the worse), my appreciation for that team just keeps growing. 4 SB's in 6 years, with that unbelievable core of players, AMAZING!!!
