Classic Game of the Week!
2005 Steelers 21 vs Bears 9
The Wheels on the Bus...

Rarely can a Hall of Fame career be summed up in a single play. But needing a win to keep Pittsburgh's playoff hopes alive against Chicago's #1-rated defense in blizzard conditions, Jerome Bettis delivers such a play (at the 86:52 mark) in a collision that symbolizes not only his great 13-year career, but a generation of smashmouth football in Pittsburgh. As Bettis takes the handoff, All-Pro LB Brian Urlacher stands his ground inside the 5-yd line and braces himself to meet the hard-charging running back. Free safety Michael Green hits Bettis first and immediately crumbles harmlessly to the ground. And then, all 260-pounds of Bettis smashes into Urlacher head on... and keeps right on going. Urlacher hangs on as the Bus runs over/through him, but Bettis simply drags him along as he powers into the end zone. Bettis finishes the day with 101 yds on 17 carries and 2 TDs, and while this game marks the final 100-yd performance of Bettis' career, it also marks the beginning of Pittsburgh's amazing 8-game winning streak en route to their 5th Lombardi Trophy. Perhaps best of all, this was also the first Steelers game my then-9-year-old son, Craig, ever attended with me. Great times, great win!

"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?

Random pic of Jack Lambert kicking @$$... just because.






Seriously, Steelers? You can't just come out and show respect for the flag and the National Anthem as a team because the President dared to say what most fans are already thinking? Shame on you. Gutless decision.

One Steeler player behaved like a man: Alejandro Villanueva, who instead of hiding in the locker room came out of the players' tunnel and respectfully stood with his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. The rest of the team should be ashamed.

What will you do next week? And the week after that?

I was poised to order my tickets to the Steelers at Lions game on Oct. 29th. Forget it. $600 for nosebleed tickets, $50 for parking, $150 for low-quality, overpriced concessions to take my family to see a bunch of millionaires whine about unjust this country supposedly is?

No thanks. Screw you, NFL. Your best years are behind you. And shame on you, Steelers, for a gutless response to a ridiculous situation.

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."
