I, myself have to think about this. But in the meantime, let's check out your list. :cope:

There are so many to choose from; AFC Championship Games, playoff games, regular season wins vs divisional rivals. It's hard to nail it down to just one or 2 but let's here what everyone thinks.

One of my favorite wins has to be Super Bowl XL. After waiting so long to get our 5th ring, the elusive "One for the Thumb", it finally happened. With Jerome going out in a blaze of glory, it just doesn't get any better than that.

the colts game was a much better win than XL...XL left me less than thrilled being we had to defend it so much cause of refereeing.

From a thrill standpiont and game execution standpoint, most definitely the Colts game was much better. I'll never forget Porter's sacks and then Vanderjact's epic miss to seal the win.

As far as just straight wins though, getting monkey off our back with the 5th win in XL was such a relief..lol.

1. this years baltimore playoff game...without a doubt the greatest game i have ever attended...heinz field was electric with energy the second half i never seen such a buzz in the air my whole life...the unadulterated joy and amazement in peoples eyes was truly unforgettable that we came back in that fashion against the ratbirds was great
2. super bowl XL...The game wasn't that great but the 26 year wait was over...i wanted to explode with joy
3. super bowl 13...first super bowl i remember watching as a child beating up on dallas was sweet as hell

Ousting Baltimore in the AFC Championship Game a couple years ago was pretty epic. There is nothing better than beating the Ravens in the post season.

2005 Colts playoffs. Once we won that we were unstoppable. Earlier that year they handed our asses to us and they were heavy favorites. We went in there and systematically reduced them to the dolts. Peyton still sees Joey Porter on his blind side in his nightmares. Love that game, I have the DVD set and watch it at least once every 3 months.

You could make a case for that entire playoff run on the way to Super Bowl XL. Being the 6th seed, going on the road and winning in those hostile stadiums, knowing it was win or go home. Watching the team rally around each other, the us against the world mentality, man that was fun to watch.

Agree with you on this. The Colts game was fantastic.

Sb 9. Forty years for Mr. Rooney to get the trophy.

SB XL- Cowher and bettis get a ring...finally. First championship in 26 years.

Reg. season- 1984 upset of 49ers. 1997 ot win vs Jags.

2005 win vs Indy was epic...

2010: come from behind win vs Balt was incredible
the nail biter hold on win against jets was something else to behold...SB 43: giving up a TD with less than 4 minutes left to play and the drive to take the lead back
so many games, what to decide....

Here are my choices in no particular order:

SB 13: Bradshaw throws 4 TD's His 1st game that he throws for over 300 yards

Dec 2009 vs Green Bay: Ben throws 500 yards and Wallace catches game winning TD with no time left

2010 playoffs Pitt comes from behind to beat Balt in the playoffs and next faces Jets in AFC Championship

2005 Divisional game vs Indy: Ben's shoe string tackle after Bettis fumble and missed 46 yard FG by Vanderjagt

Dec 23 1972 vs Oakland Immaculate reception 'nuff said, start of Steeler dynasty turning around of a losing franchise

Superbowl 43 was the greatest. Colts and Broncos playoff games in 05 were just sick too, I remember the Broncos game as one of Ben's greatest games ever played as a Steeler.

Was this the game that went like this: Bradshaw hands off to Franco, reverses to Swann, back to Bradshaw then throws TD pass to TE B Cunninghame for game winner???

XLIII and this past year's divisional round against the rats are my favorite playoff wins

Other playoff faves, 08 afccg, entire 05 playoff run including XL, 04 vs jets OT, 02 comeback vs clownies, 95 afccg

Regular season I'd say this past year in Bmore, 09 packers and vikings, 08 both rats games, 07 asswhooping of the rats, mud bowl vs Miami, 04 whooping of patsies, 97 at patsies vs jags OT, 94 vs bills woodson game.

Before my time playoffs, immaculate reception (only seen condensed version), 74 and 75 afccg's against the raiders, all 4 super bowls IX just cuz its the first. Not a great game but amazing defense by the curtain. X great game, XIII even better, XIV very underrated, lots of lead changes and big plays, 89 wild card game at houston

Reg season: 78 OT vs clownies, 79 vs cowgirls and both clowns games, 84 vs 49ers, 92 week 1 vs oilers, I can go on I have a ton of old games
