To put together a list of their greatest moments is difficult only because you will, inevitably, leave some moments out. It’s tough work to narrow it down to even thirty.

Going through the greatest moments in Steelers history is a lot like going through a family photo album or scrapbook for most Steelers fans. Being Steelers fans is how we were raised and such an integral part of our families that remembering these moments leads to remembering family moments centered around watching the Steelers.

From Mean Joe Greene to James Harrison the Pittsburgh Steelers have not only had memorable moments, but also memorable names and faces that are guaranteed to fire your emotions up when remembered.

Who can forget Ben Roethlisberger’s tackle in the 2005 AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Colts on Nick Harper after Jerome Bettis fumbled the ball? What about James Harrison’s 100-yard interception touchdown run in Super Bowl XLIII just before the half?

We could also do 30 greatest moments from the Steelers of the 70s alone whether it is the Immaculate Reception, Dwight White’s safety in Super Bowl IX or any number of Lynn Swann’s acrobatic catches.

Here is a collection – not a ranking – of the 30 greatest moments in Steelers history. Let’s save the debate for what moments were left out instead of what moment tops what.
