The Pittsburgh Steel Company is one of the most successful franchises in the NFL. They have won six Super Bowls, the most balanced of all teams with the New England Patriots. Pittsburgh has always been a well-managed franchise with coaches on the sidelines and managers in the front office.
The franchise began in 1933 under the name Pittsburgh Pirates. They became metalworkers for the first time in 1940 and again for good in 1945. Since 1970 the Stalers have only had three main carriages. This shows the stability of your franchise.
There are countless halls of the celebrities who played or formed the Steelers, and after careful consideration here is Mount Rushmore, which has always accompanied them.
None of this would have been possible without Rooney. He founded the team in 1933 when he paid $2,500 to open a franchise in Pittsburgh. From then on, Rooney became popular with the other owners and the franchise became one of the best and most respected.
Rooney owned the Steelmakers until his death in 1988. His son, Dan Rooney, took over the team and led it to his death in 2017. The steelworks is still part of the Rooney family, and today most management activities are carried out by Art Rooney II. It’s safe to say the Steelmakers will never leave Rooney’s family.
From front office to backstage. In 1969 Noll replaced the Steelmakers and in 1972 the team had won the conference. Since this year, Noll has led the steelworks to 13 winning seasons. There were 11 playoffs and a perfect 4-0 Super Bowls.
Noll spent 23 years as head coach in Pittsburgh. He won 193 games in Pittsburgh and nine divisions. Noll joined the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 1993 and was named the permanent NFL 100 team in 2019. He has established himself as one of the best coaches in the world and is still considered the best of the top ten coaches of all time.
In 1970, the Steelers elected a Louisiana Tech quarterback with the first general election at the plant. The player was Bradshaw and the decision paid off immediately. Bradshaw, in the ’70s and ’83s, would have been Pittsburgh’s quarterback. The triple professional bowler was proclaimed the first all-pro team in 1978. In the same year he would have won the MVP title and led the competition with 28 touchdown passes.
Bradshaw won four Super Bowls with Noll. He was appointed MVP Super Bowl in 1978 and 1979. Bradshaw won the franchise. In 14 years he started 158 regular season games and won 107. In 1989, Bradshaw was included in the Professional Football Hall of Fame and will be remembered forever as one of the best quarterbacks in the history of Steelers.
Green arrived in Pittsburgh at the same time as Noll and a year before Bradshaw. In 1969, the steel producers in North Texas decided to produce a fourth product. It would be one of the best defense shells in history. In 1969 he won the Defensive Rookie of the Year award and was named Defensive Player of the Year twice.
Green has taken the lead in four championships in the Iron Curtain in six years. Green has been a professional player ten times and has been voted first all-pro team four times. He played 181 games for Steel, and in 13 years, 171 games started for Steel. To date, the Green is considered one of the top five defenders of all time.
