Classic Game of the Week!
1982 Steelers 36 at Cowboys 28
Steelers Outsmart, Outplay & Outlast Cowboys

The Landry-era Cowboys experience a rare loss in a home opener thanks to 3 Terry Bradshaw TD passes and an opportunistic Pittsburgh defense.

Things get off to a rocky start for Pittsburgh when they fumble away the opening kickoff after a good return. But Dallas fails to capitalize after driving to the Pittsburgh 15 when a botched, stumbling handoff from White to Dorsett is recovered by Pittsburgh. From there, Hall of Famers Terry Bradshaw (17 of 28, 246 yds, 3 TD, 0 Int), Franco Harris (24 carries, 103 yds) and John Stallworth (7 rec, 137 yds, 1 TD) all shine as the venerable Steelers outsmart, outplay and outlast the powerful Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

The teams trade TDs in the first half and Dallas clings to a 14-13 lead at the break with the difference being a missed Pittsburgh PAT. With Tony Dorsett completely neutralized by Pittsburgh's new 3-4 defensive scheme (11 carries, 30 yards), Pittsburgh puts the game on Danny White's shoulders. White responds with 347 yds and 4 TDs but is also victimized for a pair of interceptions (Jack Ham, Rick Woods) and a blocked punt in the 3rd quarter, allowing the Steelers to explode for 20 unanswered points en route to an insurmountable 33-14 lead, rendering a late Dallas comeback effort irrelevant.

A bright start to a season that was probably the most enjoyable of the '80s for me, in spite of being strike-shortened and ending in the first round of the playoffs.

"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?

Short Clip of the Week


Distant Replay: John Stallworth

Lynn Swann has always been (and will always be) my favorite wide receiver. Swann's stats are not impressive by today's standards, but his intangibles -- singular abilities which few other receivers before or since have demonstrated -- were off the charts. And Swann was certainly among the greatest big-game receivers of all time.

But while the flamboyant Swann got most of the press, it's his smooth counterpart, John Stallworth, who until recently held most of Pittsburgh's all-time receiving records. And Stallworth, while not quite as flashy or acrobatic as Swann, was undeniably more consistant throughout his career, and he was really every bit as good in big games. And like Swann, Stallworth is a Hall of Famer in every sense of the word. Enjoy this "Distant Replay" feature from 1995.




Technically speaking, just about everything here is new right now due to the site remodel (even though this site has been here for 20 years). As we add new classic games and other features, we'll note it here so you can easily find what's new on the site.

While I was glad to see the Steelers do the right thing this week by standing respectfully during the National Anthem, the Ravens chose to disgrace themselves by taking a knee for a phony "prayer" prior to the Anthem, for which they were lustily booed by their home crowd. Meanwhile, players on other NFL teams continue to disrespect the flag.

Roger Goodell could easily put an end to this nonsense. But presumably for the sake of political correctness...

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."
