Default 1978 Pittsburg Steelers




imo the 78 Steelers were the best Steelers team ever. from the starters to the role players. in 79 with all the injuries to the starters you saw how well the role players filled in for the starters.

in my lifetime, i think the 2001 steelers were the best overall from top to bottom. still bitter over losing to the patriots because of 2 special teams TD's that shouldn't have ever happened.

Man, I agree with you 100%. That season was special and I believe we had what it took to go against St.Louis and own them that year. Opportunity thwarted, as was mostly the case in the Cowher years.

Agreed, 01 was a good year but not close to the best team of even the 2000's. I don't know what the best Steelers team I have seen is, but IMO the 08 defense was the best defense I have ever seen. 2008 may have been the best team, at least since the 70's.

I have been a Steelers fan since I was 10 years old, (that makes me a fan since '72) The best team I have seen wear black and gold, didn't win the superbowl and it was the '76 team. By far the best Defense I have ever seen (over the last nine games pitching 4 shutouts and allowing only 27 points) and were it not for injuries to both Franco and Rocky in the playoffs we would have won our third in a row that year. As I have grown older and know the game better than I did when I was 14 year old kid, that only re-enforces my opinion.

I'm 3 years older than you, been watching the Steelers since '67, and have to agree with you about that 1976 team

if those 11 men had been assigned by the Germans to defend the Normandy shores in June 1944, Eisenhower would still be scratching his head

totally agree the 76 was the real deal....Some think 04 was prolly because of the 15-1 record....

100% agree!

In fact, the '78 Steelers earned me 20 bucks extra almost every week of the season.
This dope of a Giant fan used to come up to me every Friday at work and bet me 20 bucks that the Steelers would lose. He did that all season too!
I never figured out why he kept doing it (I guess he just had some sort of grudge against the Steelers)

Back then I was making a whopping 4 bucks an hour so that extra 20 came in handy!
