I saw the NFLN show about this; our Steel Curtain was ranked number 2 all time nicknames just behind America's team. :wtf:

You don't see cool nicknames anymore like you did back in the day. Nowadays units don't stay together long enough to develop an identity like that. The Steel Curtain, Purple people eaters, Orange Crush, Fearsome Foursome, all those great teams came from an era where you stayed with your team pretty much your whole career. The most you could call teams of today is maybe the "who's gonna pay me more next year".

no way america's team is better than the "steel curtain". most of america hates the cowboys, and "steel curtain" perfectly fit that defense

I feel that due to the death of the man, that "Mad Dog" should put the Steel Curtain up to #1....

A team that would have never won a championship if they didn't have a Pittsburgh Native and HOF QB Joe Montana.

49ers of the 90's I thought did not win their one SB with Montana? They won it with Young I thought...

My favorite, "The Big Blue Wrecking Crew" is not a choice. As an OLineman, I have to go with Hogs.
