Pittsburgh Steelers: Top 20 moments in franchise history
The Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the NFL’s most storied franchises, wouldn’t have gotten here without some of the league’s most historic moments.
In the world of opinionated sports list, we decided to throw our interpretations in the proverbial ring of who, where, when and what was the “best” of this or that. In this case, we decided to take on, “The Top 20 Greatest Moments in Steelers History.”
The difference, these moments are not just plays, but franchise changing events that are forever etched into the lore of the Steelers organization, players and fans alike. We thought about changing it to greatest “events”, but that sounded “whack” and we weren’t “feeling it” because it didn’t bring the same fire. So my youngin, “BDos” and I was kicking around some choices while sipping on some Gin n’ Juice, laid back…
We know some will try to trash it, won’t be glad for it and laugh at it, but like the poetic lyricist Nas said, “you can hate me now, but I won’t stop now…” Check it out in terms of how we see it in this order!
#20. The Immaculate Extension.
Playoffs at stake, with the game on the line,13 seconds on the clock and three players trying to hold Antonio Brown out of the end zone. Forgetaboutit!
#19. Strong Safety.
Big Ben. AFC Ship on the line against the Colts, winner goes to the SuperBowl,1:20 on the clock, holding a 21-18 lead, Jerome Bettis Fumbles at the one-yard line, Nick Harper scoops the ball and off to the races. Big Ben wasn’t having it and changed from QB to safety and grabbed those shoestrings, down goes Harper, down goes Harper.
