    If the 60 Packers in their prime played the 70s Steelers in their prime, who would win?🤔

    The Patriots of today are great, but they are not 1970s Steelers great.

    That pass from Bradshaw to Stallworth for a touchdown in the playoff game against Denver was a typical tight spiral thrown by Bradshaw. As tight a spiral as I have ever seen by a quarterback.

    The Greatest Dynasty of all time – the 85 Bears / 2000 Ravens D were great for one year – They weren’t the Steel Curtain which was was great for seven strong years

    In 1978, the NFL changed the rules regarding passing.

    No announcer and team fit better than Facenda and the Steelers 21:30

    Check out the hit Lynn Swann takes at 5:54-5:57

    Whats the name at 5:45?

  9. Kenneth DelPalazzo on February 27, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    You can’t consider that LA-Steelers game in any context. It was played in a quagmire.

    The greatest team in NFL history

    Thanks so much for posting this video, LC. I’ve been looking to see this again for a very long time because it’s my favorite ever Steeler highlight special. Seeing this again was very special to me. Thanks again!

    "Franco calls it – picking his hole" – LOL

  13. Fire&Ice909 on February 27, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    And they actually believed in the anthem then.

    it is safe to say that even with expert analysis from ESPN, the NFL network and others *(publications) that they ALL confer to point out that the 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers were among the best, if not THE best ever. Many have matched them with other great teams from other eras through the use of computer data and simulation and the ’78 STEELERS come out ahead. Another factor people generally overlook is the fact that 1978 was the FIRST season that had the 16 game schedule, which made it tougher for football players to endure. Two extra games on the schedule many not seem much to the average fan but try telling THAT to any football player who went from a 14 game schedule to a 16 game schedule within a year… The Steelers were dominant on BOTH sides of the ball in most categories. Their defense was their bread and butter, but adding a electric passing offense put them head and shoulders above the rest of the league. That’s why the Steelers were the TEAM OF THE DECADE (70’S)… 4 Super Bowls championships in a 6 year span is mega impressive.

    I never liked the Steelers, but I thought Franco Harris was the man. I never thought he was trying to avoid being hit. You can’t help that playing football.

  16. Michael Head on February 27, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Whats the name of the song at 5:42?

  17. G Fernández on February 27, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Respect…a Raider fan uploading a Steeler highlight film. Quite a collection of rare songs used in this years highlight. I also heard this film was the first place "Steeler Nation" was used. John Facenda was in super form for this, he was always a great narrator, but sometimes yearly highlight films were a bit of a letdown, but not this one.

  18. Steve Austin on February 27, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    I believe this is the first season after a rule change that a defender can not touch a receiver after five yards,opened up things for the offense ..known as the "Mel blount rule" ….man I treasure every memory I have from this era….my late uncle got me into them and was hooked since ’78…

  19. Raheem Gaines on February 27, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    The NFL Films music is always so good. The music for this video is great.

  20. Paul Bennett on February 27, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    anyone know that music starting at 18:16… it’s also used in ‘The Five Venoms’ king fu movie at the end

  21. Mike Vanriel on February 27, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    I meant to say the Cowboys beat the Steelers 17-13. Error on my part. I also should have said Roger Staubach never beat the Steelers in the regular season or 2 Super Bowls.

  22. Michael Lang on February 27, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Franco was so good. Wow.

  23. David Grillo on February 27, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Thank you for posting all these videos

    The Cowboys in SB 13vs the Steelers were the defending SB 12 champions ,and were the underdogs ,imagine that for a second ,that’s how great the odds makers considered the Steelers ! Inthe final game of the season the Steelers played a meaningless game vs the broncos in Denver by virtue of the fact that the Steelers had already locked up home field through out the playoffs regardless of this games outcome and the broncos would be their first round opponent ironically, but because it was against that broncos team that eliminated the Steelers in the previous years playoffs the Steelers came with conviction to beat them in the regular season finale in Denver ! After racing out to a 21 to 3 lead the Steelers onhe last play of the game had to make a goal line stand to win the game ,Joe Greene who hadn’t participated in the contest checked himself in without notifying the coaching staff for the final play and helped to stack the line allowing Lambert to stuff the broncos runner to preserve the victory ! Joe Greene’s comment afterwards was we wanted this one badly , after losing to them last year I couldn’t live with my self if we lost this game ! Thats what separates great teams and players from the rest of the pack ! The Steelers defenders were insulted by the fact that some inthe media had considered the broncos orange crush defense supperior to the Steelers defense ! Lambert carried a competitive fire against the broncos opposing ILB Randy Gradishar who was competing with Lambert for best ILB inthe NFL once refusing to shake Gradishars hand in the pre game warms ups ,when Gradishars who like Lambert was from Ohio introduced him self by saying hi I’m Randy Gradishar , Lambert replied who gives a shit and refused to shake his hand ! LC GREENEWOOD in the AFC divisional round game in 78 walked past some broncos during warmup as he came out of the tunnel toke a orange he was eating and smashedi it against a wall to validate a point to those broncos ! In SB 13 vs the cowboys John Stallworth only played in the first half in which he had 128 yds and two TD’s on 3 rec because of severe muscle cramps ,the Steelers after obtaining a 35;to 17 lead over the cowboys went to a prevent defense ordered by Chuck Noll something the players detested ,the Steelers defensive coordinator stated after the game that if they had played their regular defense the cowboys could have played 6 quarters and wouldn’t have gotten another point !

    "In its finest hour." Yes, the great Steelers put together that year a team of all time during that decade much like the 1975 Cincinnati Reds and the 1977 Montreal Canadians. The greatest teams in sports coming in that time span is so memorable to such a memorable 70s decade.

  26. Christopher Hagee on February 27, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    After losing to Super Bowl-bound teams in each, previous 2 seasons’ (1976-1977/1977-1978) A.F.C. Playoffs in Raiders/Broncos, both on road, Steelers dominated that conference in 1978-1979 season going 14-2-0 during reg. season play, then scoring victories over Broncos/then-Hou. Oilers (current Tenn. Titan franchise), both at home in A.F.C. Playoffs to advance to Super Bowl, XIII where they’d defeat previous season’s (1977-1978) Super Bowl winners, Cowboys, 35-31

  27. Randy Corns on February 27, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    The greatest most talented team ever.

  28. L E on February 27, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Taking into consideration factors such as strength of schedule in the regular and post seasons and how much the Steelers dominated its schedule regardless, this team is the greatest team of all time (with appropriate respect to the undefeated 1972 Dolphins who alone can make the compelling argument of being undefeated and untied).

  29. Robert Thompson on February 27, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    How the were the steelers able to get so many freaking fans of their own into these super bowls..damn home game basically… i thought the cowboys of that time were america’s team.
    Unreal !!

  30. DICK TRICKLE on February 27, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    They finally maned up after getting their ass kicked for two years by the Raiders and Broncos.

  31. James Tressler on February 27, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Those losses to the Rams in 75 and 78 should be taken in context. The Steelers were playing a very tough Rams team in Los Angeles, and were mid-season matchups. Notice that in both 75 and 78, the Steelers lost only 2 games. But then regained their momentum and went on to the Super Bowl. The losses could be attributed to mid-season blues against a tough team on the road.

  32. Frank Ryan on February 27, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Wonderful childhood memories!!

  33. JOE COLABELLI on February 27, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    As per Bill Walsh THE GREATEST COLLECTION OF TALENT TO EVER STEP ON A FOOTBALL FIELD THE 70S STEELERS

  34. Jonathan Kubacki on February 27, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Some of those hits at the end in the Super Bowl vs Dallas were brutal can you imagine if players in the NFL today did that people would be thrown out of the league that was real football to me

  35. Robbie on February 27, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    do you have the 79 and 82 season? i have it on vhs lol..

  36. Brandon Morris on February 27, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    It’s really a shame that the Steelers of now can’t create a new dynasty thanks a brick wall called the New England Patriots. Not hating on the Patriots mind you, but I believe it’s someone else’s turn now to build a dynasty of their own.

  37. Samuel Dumas on February 27, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    I love those Steelers but not like I did those Oilers love ya blue

  38. Rescue162 on February 27, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Great documentary on the 1978 Steelers. Perhaps the finest professional football team of them all.

  39. Carlos Avila on February 27, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    The greatest season of football I’ve ever seen ending with the Best super bowl

  40. Marc Amerine on February 27, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    I’m a Raiders Fan fan growing Up in Altoona PA.. My whole family Loves the Steelers..The 76’ Steelers Defense an wht they did the Final 10 Games, Shooting Out 5 & Only Allowed 5.3 to the teams is UNBELIEVABLE.. tht should’ve Won the Super Bowl.. (happens tht My Raiders Won , But I think thts Only Cause BOTH RBS Didnt Play tht Game.)Every1 talks about 85’ Bears defense , But I Think 🤔 76,78,79. Steelers were Absolutely Incredible.!!

  41. Keith Clark on February 27, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    From the 1978 team: R.I.P. #29 Ron Johnson , #89 Bennie Cunningham, #83 Theo Bell, #52 Mike Webster, #64 Steve Furness, #78 Dwight White, #68 LC Greenwood

  42. Rick B on February 27, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    Always wanted to rewatch the Houston playoff game in the cold frozen rain where Donnie Torpedo Shell plastered Earl Cambell with a brutal hit that pretty much put him out of the game! The turning point for the Steelers to win the game and advance to the Greatest Superbowl of all time! IMHO

  43. yerejay on February 27, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    Chuck Noll was without question the greatest NFL HEAD COACH in NFL history. The greatest mind in professional football.

  44. Christopher Hagee on February 27, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Steelers had all-female cheerleading squad in 1960s called Steelerettes. It folded though after 1969-1970 season

  45. Tyron Davis on February 27, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Just give me a damn 1978 Steelers season highlights. This is extremely gives me the chills. I can take this, over the today’s 2018 Steelers, any day, all day, we never closed. I think the today’s 2018 Steelers can use a tool, if they want to win a Super Bowl Championship this year, in which they’re doing good, so far.
    But the 1978-79 Steelers are the legacy, and the real deal. Thanks for the highlights video
    RIP Chuck Noll🏈🎄☕😎🌤️🌈🇺🇸📺
    Consider it a 40 year legacy and history lesson in the NFL.

    Pitts didn’t have the greatest defense ever they gave up 31 points in the Superbowl to Dallas and pitts was handed that game because Dallas gave it away,dumb turnovers that was the outcome even Bradshaw said it too, they was fortunate that day but a hell of a offense u could not stop em at times, I think swann and stallworth was two of the most explosive fun wr to play on same team, and Terry was just unstoppable he had a strong arm but the thing they could out jump any secondary well swann was good stallworth made huge runs ran away from Dallas sec but Dallas shiulg have win the game but beat their selves and the catch in end zone I don’t blame Roger for being mad but they made mistakes and it was a 30 pts or more turnaround for dallas thats a lucky win for Pitts because Dallas beat their selves 6costly mistakes Dallas should have won the fame 48- 30 Bradshaw said Dallas was a real good team and had a great defense too but their sec had a hard time with stall and swann who didnt, cowboys were loaded on defense and offense too they crushed Denver year before, but gave the game to pitts the bears had a great defense in 85 and Oakland in 76 Dallas In 77 Denver had a good defense too in 77Dallas was loaded that year but Pitt was consistent like Oakland and Dallas, Oakland had the game won in 75,pitts made a miracle pass to harris that was illegal too Oakland won that game, knoll knows but no instant replay then, should of beenit was soppose to be Dallas vs Oakland in 75 that was a terrible call, madden, stabler, and oakand was mean too.great 70’s
