Helmets Off


Jan 30, 2018

It's Super Bowl week! To celebrate the week, Scott is going to countdown the seven greatest Super Bowl Champions of All-Time.

Coming in at number three is the 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers.  They entered the playoffs with a 14-2 record.  They had ten players that were named to the Pro Bowl.  They were led by quarterback Terry Bradshaw.  They beat the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl.  Many would say that the 1975 team was better because of their defense.  Scott picked the 1978 team because they were at the pinnacle of their success and they beat a very good Dallas Cowboys team. 

That era for the Steelers was a great era filled with legends where basically every defensive player was inducted into the hall of fame.  It was crazy how they built the team through the decade and a lot of it was just really good draft picks. It's crazy to think that they weren't sure if Terry Bradshaw was their quarterback for the future.

When Scott was 10-years old, he went to Houston to watch the Oilers face the Pittsburgh Steelers and it was a blood bath.  Just a physical football game.  Scott received a game ball from the 1978 game between the Houston Oilers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
