Default Remember the 1980's

Let's go back in time, after the glory days of the 1970's, there was the "Gory Days" formerly known as the 1980's.

Oh Boy, were they compared to the great teams of the 70's

We had Bubby, Todd "Sackledge" Rich Erunberg, Weggie Thompson, Lupe Sanchez, and the remaining bad draft picks exept woodson and lloyd.

Please share your life lasting memories about that exciting decade of Pittsburgh Steelers football known as the 1980's.

The 80's huh? Well there is always the start of watching veterans play out their careers. I will remember not being good enough to beat teams like Seattle, (who was pretty new). But since I used to see them out at Century III mall was seeing Hoge and Brister sitting in the food court. We may not have been great on the field, but those were some characters in the late 80's.

I don't remember much about the 80's except for what I read and people tell me. I was born in 1983 and I started following the Steelers in the 90's. The only Super Bowl I've witnessed live was in '96 against the Cowboys. Well, you know the events and outcome of that game.

Anyway, my recovery process was delayed due to the fact that my brother was a Cowboys fan at the time and wouldn't stop harassing me. I think his girlfriend converted him to a Steelers fan earlier this year though. But he denies it, even when he wears Steelers gear and cheers for them on game day. You decide.

I'm going way off topic. So I better stop NOW! My apologies.

Thumbs up Re: Remember the 1980's

I was a little kid in the 1980's, yet still a Steeler fans.

I remeber late in the 80's seeing that sucky QB, Brister. I remember the Browns-Steelers games, since I lived half-way between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, in New Castle. Those games brought the dogs out in full force. Browns fans annoyed me greatly. (Still do!)

Maybe it was good that I did not watch games since I was a kid. I do remember following the Steelers close in 1991, which was Chuck Knoll's last team and season. To bad free agency discouraged him from continueing on a few more years. I have a team photo pf the last Chuck Knoll team. I should put that up on my Steelers wall. Better yet, I should make a copy and post that up and vaccum seal the original.

Food for thought...

Bradshaw >> Good Days
Brister >> Bad Days
O'Donnell >> Good Days (sort of)
Stewart >> Bad Days
Rothlesberger >> Good Days (so far)

Of course there have been numerous QB's of all statures filling in the holes. Go ahead and shoot me for being a Maddox fan. I've cheered for him since he won the XFL championship for the LA Extreme. Maddox will help make Rothlesberger a legend. Big Ben, beware that we Steelers fans are rough on our QB's! If your not a legend, you'll be boo'ed out of the burgh. I'm way off subject so I'll shut up for now.

oh yeah, I do remember Stoudt being named the starter then being put on injured list because he went out to a bar, got drunk, and punched a video game. To qoute Crash Davis, "you get in a fight with a drunk, you never throw a punch with your pitching hand".

PS - Does anyone remember Huey Richardson?

Ooops, just did the homework and Richardson was 2000-2001 time. Just missed the 80's. Still a big bust.

Poor Louie Lipps, he was better than the qb`s he had around him.
How about Senoir Sack, what a shame.
