With the precedent setting 6th Super Bowl win, it is time to break down what sets this STEELER organiztion and STEELER COUNTRY apart from the rest.
First, let's get out of the way whether or not the STEELERS are the best team ever in the NFL. Six Super Bowl victories says it all.
My moniker is 'whatever it takes'. And if you ask anybody, this phrase is a non sequitor.
Saying it, thinking it is easy. Doing it, well that's another matter. Just ask the 2004 STEELERS.
The difference between the STEELERS and the rest of the league, is a commitment to achieving. Achievement in Head Coach selection (3 SB winners in 3 HC selections), achievement in personel selection (4 HOFamers in a single draft!!!), achievement in fan participation (did u see the number of fans who showed up in Tampa???), achievement in sportscasters (Myron COPE!!!!!!!).
For 40 years, everyone associated with the ROONEY organization has understood it is ALL about the hardware - Lombardi Trophies.
For 40 years, the ROONEY organization has put teams on the field that compete, and deliver the hardware. NOLL, COWER, TOMLIN.
STEELER fans expect it, but they go one step further... week in, and week out, .... STEELER fans show up - - AWAY -- and at home. STEELER fans participate with not only their heart, but their DOLLARS. And STEELER fans are in the game with THEIR team for 60 minutes.
Think it doesn't matter? Really?? Ask THIS team about fan PARTICIPATION.
We're YINZERS. We come to play, and WIN. Willie Parker and James Harrison own SB records in SB victories. Neither was drafted by any team. BOTH are PITTSBURGH heroes.
We're YINZERS - Rooney, Noll, Cowher, Tomlin.
We line up for SMASH MOUTH.
We own more Lombardi Trophies than ANYBODY!
We come to play. We play to win. Year after year.
and the hardware is on display in PITTSBURGH.
