Classic Game of the Week!
1974 AFC Championship
Steelers 24 at Raiders 13

The NFLs' Greatest Dynasty is Born

In perhaps the most pivotal game in team history, the Steel Curtain bankrupts the hated Raiders, limiting the NFL's #1-ranked offense to a paltry 29 yards rushing in 21 attempts (a puny 1.4 yd avg) and forcing Ken Stabler into 3 INTs in spite of a career game by Cliff Branch.

The Steelers physically dominate the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball from the outset, but in spite of driving inside the Raider 10 multiple times, Pittsburgh has only 3 points to show for it after 3 quarters due to poor kicking, poor officiating (a beautiful one-handed TD catch by John Stallworth is incorrectly ruled out of bounds) and mental errors.

Undaunted, the Steelers continue to gouge the Raiders repeatedly with trap plays and Franco Harris finally punches it into the end zone on the first play of the 4th quarter, tying the game at 10 apiece as the Steelers begin a 21-point scoring explosion in the final period. Pittsburgh continues to pile it on following a brilliant Jack Ham INT (his 2nd of the day) which he returns to the Raider 9-yard line to set up Bradshaw's go-ahead 6-yard TD dart to Lynn Swann.

Franco Harris (29 carries, 111 yds, 2 TD) and Rocky Bleier (18 carries, 98 yds) benefit from superb play by the Steeler O-line, punishing the Raiders for 224 yards on the ground and finally sealing a trip to the Super Bowl on Franco's 21-yd TD scamper in the final minute of the game. Missing a few minutes of action just before the half. Footage includes lots of great old commercials.

"My Fight with Jack Lambert"
An entertaining first-hand account of a rookie tight end's encounter with the legendary Hall of Fame LB

Special Feature
Pittsburgh Steelers
"I drilled him!"
"Lambert didn't see me coming until the last instant. He tried to square up but couldn't, and I drilled him -- just floored him. The play went for a score, and he got up cussing and yelling with the wildest eyes I've ever seen!" More...
Article by Mark Dufresne

I was a failed Steeler draft choice as a tight end coming out of Nebraska in 1978 (7th round, selected 187th overall), but during my brief stint with the team, I experienced a couple of memorable Jack Lambert moments first hand that I thought your readers would enjoy.

Lambert was as intimidating in camp as he was in games... maybe even more so. Nobody messed with Jack. NOBODY. His respect was solid within the team. He was his own man and was not into political correctness in the slightest because I believe his heart was pure and he was comfortable within himself. At our first team lunch with the vets in camp, we had to stand up and introduce ourselves -- rookies and star veterans alike -- and tell what school we played for. When it came his turn, Jack stood up on his chair and shouted like a Marine drill sergeant, "I'm Jack Lambert, I'm from Grambling and if you don't like it, you can kiss my skinny white a$$!" He sat back down without even a trace of a smile and the place just went nuts, howling and laughing. Grambling is, of course, a predominantly "black" state university in Louisiana...

What If the Steelers Had Drafted Marino in '83?

Given enough time, nearly any discussion of the Steelers will eventually turn to the greatest "what if" in the annals of Pittsburgh sports: What if the Steelers had drafted Dan Marino? Oddly enough, this subject came up during a conversation about the 1990 Steelers' 35-0 victory over the Browns. One thing led to another, and... well, Marino, of course. :)
"In my hypothetical, the Steelers draft Dan Marino in the 1983 NFL Draft and the Steelers go to the Super Bowl at least four, maybe five times between 1983 through 1999." ~ Matthew Simon
Seems legit. Personally, I think Marino would've been good for one, maybe two more Lombardi's in Pittsburgh. What are your thoughts?

Short Clip of the Week

Lynn Swann: The Gift of Grab

Lynn Swann is an immortal; a Hall of Famer who possessed remarkable intangibles... singular abilities that few receivers before or since have demonstrated. Arguably the greatest big-game receiver of all time, Swann's style and grace in an era of headhunting DBs defined the position for a generation of players and fans. Perhaps no player in NFL history did more with less than Lynn Swann. He played on a defensive-minded, ground control team that provided him with limited opportunities to showcase his talent, yet he is remembered as a "hero" by the likes of Rice, Carter and Moss. Nicknamed "Baryshnikov in cleats" for his balletic receiving style, Lynn Swann truly performed with the "Gift of Grab."

Technically speaking, just about everything here is new right now due to the site remodel (even though this site has been here for 20 years). As we add new classic games and other features, we'll note it here so you can easily find what's new on the site.

* Prayers for Ryan Shazier *
Our first prayer is that Ryan Shazier makes a full recovery that allows him to lead a normal, full and happy life; that he'll be able to walk and run and play with his children. Thankfully, he continues to improve and appears to be on that path, although playing football again may or may not be in his future. Spinal stabilization surgery means he won't return to football this season, but it doesn't necessarily rule out football in his future. We continue to pray for Ryan, his family and his continued improvement.

While I was glad to see the Steelers do the right thing this week by standing respectfully during the National Anthem, the Ravens chose to disgrace themselves by taking a knee for a phony "prayer" prior to the Anthem, for which they were lustily booed by their home crowd. Meanwhile, players on other NFL teams continue to disrespect the flag.

Roger Goodell could easily put an end to this nonsense. But presumably for the sake of political correctness...

Lake's Take: Post-draft Depth Situation
By "The Lakelander"
> QB ... Big Ben is legendary, a future first ballot HOFer, and still very dangerous in accuracy and his deep ball ... We likely improved our backup QB situation and we did so with a Slash Stewart prototype ... I'm really cool with this ...
> OL ... We are deep on O-Line with a very veteran starting group, and with Finney, Hubbard, Hawkins and Mike Matthews (son of HOFer Bruce Matthews) ... No worries here heading into camp ...
> TE ... Well it all depends on Ladarius the way I see it. He was clearly a TD threat for Big Ben when he actually played last year ... Steelers have James, Green, Grimble and some young undrafted types ... It's safe to say we aren't a TE heavy team and it's also safe to say we will rely on our WR's in 2017 ...

A Life Truly Well Lived

Comments by dbsfgyd1
"He was the first Steeler I met. It was the spring of 1964. The local YMCA had a 'Night With the Steelers' son and dads program. I became a fan during the 1963 season as the Steelers finally put together a championship caliber team, but fell short in a semi playoff game against the NY Giants. I was thinking I'd be meeting guys the likes of John Henry Johnson, Gary Bauman, Big Daddy Lipscomb. The thing was, the only Steeler that showed up was this skinny guy with a movie projector in one arm, and a film can in the other. It was the NFL highlight film of the 1963 season. Funny looking back on it, as thoroughly disappointed I was not so see any 'real' football players that night, little did I know, and how unimpressed I was to meet the second most important man in the history of the Steelers; a keen business man, the one who molded the most successful team in the history of professional sports, the key driver of turning this team and others into billion dollar enterprises, selected to represent all of all of us Americans as an ambassador, Mr. Dan Rooney. RIP. A life truly well lived."
