The early history of the Pittsburgh Steelers stands in stark contrast to the success the team eventually achieved. The Steelers first took the field in 1933, but it would take them until 1947 to make their first playoff appearance. The Steelers went another 25 years without a playoff appearance. Nevertheless, the lowest points in franchise history came during the 1943 and 1944 seasons when the Steelers merged first with the Philadelphia Eagles and then with the Chicago Cardinals. This last Card-Pitt team went 0-10, marking the only time that the team finished a season winless.


The Steelers' fortunes finally changed some 36 years after the franchise was founded. In 1969 Chuck Noll was hired as head coach. Noll was a particularly discerning talent evaluator who built the team with great draft picks. Among Knoll's selections were "Mean" Joe Greene in 1969, Terry Bradshaw and Mel Blount in 1970, Jack Ham in 1971, Franco Harris in 1972, and Lynn Swann, Jack Lambert, Mike Webster and John Stallworth in 1974. All of these players that Noll drafted went on to have Hall of Fame careers. Noll compiled a record of 209-156-1 as head coach of the Steelers.

When Noll retired after the 1991 season, Bill Cowher was hired as his successor. During his 15 seasons at the helm Cowher was arguably more famous - especially for his trademark scowl - than any of his players. As the face of the franchise, Cowher led the Steelers to the playoffs in 10 of his 15 seasons, including an appearance in Super Bowl XXX, and a win in Super Bowl XL. Cowher posted a 161-99-1 record as head coach of the Steelers.

  • 1975 (IX): Won 16-6 over the Minnesota Vikings

  • 1976 (X): Won 21-17 over the Dallas Cowboys

  • 1979 (XII): Won 35-31 over the Dallas Cowboys

  • 1980 (XIV): Won 31-19 over the Los Angeles Rams

  • 1996 (XXX): Lost 27-17 to the Dallas Cowboys
