Coach year games pts/scored avg pts/allowed avg record
Noll 1974 14 305 21.8 189 13.5 10-3-1
Noll 1975 14 373 26.6 162 11.6 12-2
Noll 1976 14 342 24.4 138 9.9 10-4
Noll 1977 14 283 20.2 243 17.4 9-5
Noll 1978 16 356 22.3 195 12.2 14-2
Noll 1979 16 416 26.0 262 16.4 12-4
Thanks for the stats - confirms my bias the 75 and 76 teams (difference between points scored and points allowed > 2 TDs per game) were the best Steelers teams of all time

'76 team was amazing - 1-4 to start the season until Bradshaw was hurt in week 5 (Turkey Jones spikes him into the ground and would have been banned for life by Goodell)

then 6-0 when Mike Kruzcek takes over (Bradshaw played 1 week between weeks 5 and 13) , then 2-0 when Bradshaw returned - defense gave up 2 touchdowns, 28 total points, and had 5 shutouts in the last 9 weeks of the season
