That's a great series, although the past couple teams have sucked. The 91 Redskins were boring and the 71 Cowboys were messed up, with Landry not being able to pick a QB and that Duane Thomas guy who wouldn't talk to his teammates.
But the rest have been great. 99 Rams, 69 Chiefs, 94 49ers, and 96 Packers were great shows. I loved the part where Brett Favre and 2 other guys from the Packers went trick or treating to Mike Holmgren's house. That was hilarious.
The 70's Steelers were the best champions ever assembled. *** kickin D and smashmouth running game, we even became high flyin in the late 70's.
They shouldn't pick the '72 Dolphins just because they were undefeated. They did beat us in the AFC Championship game but barely only won 14-7 in the SB. Everyone knows the accompllishments the Steelers had in the 70s mean a lot more (back to back SB victories x 2)
I had to bring this thread back to the beginning because the series will be ending later this week before the Superbowl and there has been some really bad and surprising teams in the mix.
I find it amusing that NO STEELERS SUPERBOWL TEAM has made it yet and the "Official Countdown" is at #8 The 84 Fourty Niners.
They have previewed the '75 Steelers as being the #7 team but there have already been two Raider teams/two Cowboy teams and two Fourty Niner teams in the top twenty and this whole Americas Game will be a "Sham" if at least two more Steeler Superbowl Teams don't reach the finals.
#10 76 Raiders
#9 04 Patriots
#8 84 Fourty Niners
#7 75 Steelers
2 Steeler teams on here ?? There should be atleast 3 if not all of them ! There's several spots left so we better see atleast 1 if not 2 more Steeler teams in the top. I didn't expect to see the Steelers in the high numbers but once we got to 10 I certainly expected to start seeing atleast couple of those famous teams.
Hell, even the Pats have at least 2 teams (04 and, from the commercials, 01) so there better be at least 3 Steelers teams. Perhaps #7, #4, and #2?
I think the XL team is going to be in the top 10. Not sure why, but from the preivews I would say they are going to be listed.
The top 4 should be us, plain and simple ! :hail: to the Football gods !
I think you're right.

Any if not all of the 5 Steeler Superbowl teams should be on the list.
The 97 Packers, 98 Broncos and the 99 Rams are just three examples of teams who have no business being in the top 20
We should round out the last 5 spots. I say either the 1979 Steelers or 1974 Steelers are the top team on the list.
