In TB's defense, it was much harder to throw back then. Rules changes have helped modern QB's immensely.
Yes, the rules were different then. They favored the defesne more then. Knocking out and body slamming the QB. Knocking the WR down before the ball arrives etc.
Plus, Steelers as most teams were a running team first too.
