The Pittsburgh Steelers are part of the North Division of the American Football Conference (AFC North). They are the oldest franchise in the AFC and have also won the most championships— appearing in six Super Bowls and winning five.
Originally named the Pirates, Pittsburgh joined the NFL in 1933. The Steelers are descendents of the first-ever pro-football team, as Pittsburgh hosted the world’s first pro game in the 1880s. That early franchise, though, fell victim to Pennsylvania’s “blue laws,” which (before 1933) prohibited sporting events from being played on Sundays.
The Steelers lost Super Bowl XXX to Dallas but 10 years later, won Super Bowl XL over Seattle. After 15 years with the team, Cowher stepped down as coach at the end of the 2006 season. Current coach Mike Tomlin has big shoes to fill and high expectations to meet.
But he is off to a promising start, making the playoffs during his first season. Someone else in Pittsburgh started out the same way—he is known by most as Big Ben.
