Classic Game of the Week!
1978 Steelers 35 vs Colts 13

Bradshaw Throws Frozen Ropes in Blizzard

As a fan of bad weather games, this is obviously among my all-time favorites. In the midst of an MVP season, Terry Bradshaw has a freakishly good game in near-blizzard conditions (11 of 18, 240 yds, 3 TDs), burying the Baltimore secondary under an avalanche of pinpoint accurate passes despite seemingly unplayable weather. Receivers Lynn Swann (3 catches, 87 yds) and John Stallworth (1 catch, 31 yds, 1 TD) each appear only briefly in the first half, but their acrobatic grabs and yardage after catch put the Colts in an early 21-0 hole.

The Steel Curtain is equally terrifying, absolutely overwhelming the "Bert Jones-less" Colts as backup QB Bill Troup goes a meager 8 of 18 for 62 yds with 2 INTs, 2 sacks and 2 fumbles. But in spite of generating almost no offense, the Colts surprisingly find themselves back in the game after the weather conditions contribute to a bad exchange between Bradshaw and Harris, and LB Derrel Luce scoops up the loose ball and slip-slides his way to a 44-yd TD on the recovery.

But on the ensuing kickoff, Larry Anderson breaks loose and slaloms his way all the way down to the Colt 19. From there, Bradshaw quickly reestablishes control with a short TD pass to Grossman and shortly thereafter, ices the game (pun intended) with his 3rd TD of the afternoon, a deep pass to a wide open Jim Smith, the first TD catch of the young WR's career.

On defense, Tony Dungy gets the first start of his career (subbing for an injured Mike Wagner) and snags his 5th INT of the season as the Steelers clinch homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. Gotta love the Zamboni clearing snow off of the yard lines between plays. A big-time thanks to Brad Geffers for this nice upgrade!

"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


The Jessica Simpson Jinx :)

In every championship season, there are moments that make you realize destiny is on your side. This clip from 2008 was one of those moments. This game was UGLY and had all the makings of a Steeler loss. Early in the 4th quarter with the Steelers already trailing 13-3, Dallas stuffed Gary Russell for a loss on 4th and goal from the 1-yard line and the jubilant Cowboys celebrated wildly, seeming to forget that nearly a full quarter of football remained. Dallas was soon forced to punt and that's when Pittsburgh began a Texas-sized comeback, jamming 17 points into the final 8 minutes including 2 TDs in a span of 24 seconds, tying the game at 13 with 2:04 left. Despite of throwing INTs to Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor and losing a fumble on a sack by James Harrison, Tony Romo has the ball, 3 timeouts and 2 minutes to go win the game for Dallas. But Jessica Simpson is in the house... and Romo is Romo. On 2nd down, Romo sails a pass high over the head of Jason Witten and into the waiting arms of Deshea Townsend, who sprints down the left sideline and dives into the end zone for a stunning 25-yd TD to steal a 20-13 Steeler comeback victory. That electrifying play is our clip of the week. Enjoy!

* Prayers for Ryan Shazier *
Our first prayer is that Ryan Shazier makes a full recovery that allows him to lead a normal, full and happy life; that he'll be able to walk and run and play with his children. Thankfully, he continues to improve and appears to be on that path, although playing football again may or may not be in his future. Spinal stabilization surgery means he won't return to football this season, but it doesn't necessarily rule out football in his future. We continue to pray for Ryan, his family and his continued improvement.





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...

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."
