My friends brought 3 cases of Iron City with the Steelers on the can. We were selling them on the road to the Rose Bowl, $1 a can for Steelers fans, $10 a can for Rams fans. People were actually giving us $10. That game was tremendous.

As a fan who started watching the Steelers in the early 1960s, you bet the 70s were great. The Steelers and the Pirates made our city feel good about itself when the economy was going to hell.


My uncle (and now my aunt, since he passed) had/has a huge collection of that Steelers memorabilia, and gave some of those cans for my TV room a few years ago. Get comments from fellow Steelers brethren all the time. Can believe it about the time period in the city, too. My cousin Bill was there from the 60's on through, and he would definitely agree.

I have a full set of unopened Steelers super bowl iron city cans. Prized possession.

That’s awesome.


Hell yeah. If I had a TARDIS, I would go back and catch some 70's Steelers before saving the planet. Must have been incredible times.


People who aren't old enough to remember might not realize how tense that Super Bowl was. Bud Carson, who had designed the Steel Curtain defense, was the Rams' defensive coordinator by then and his defensive game plan frustrated the bejeezus out of Bradshaw and the Steelers. Until Stallworth's catch, Brad really hadn't done much and we really felt the Steelers were in jeopardy of being upset by the 9-7 Vince Ferragamo-led Rams.

Then Stallworth made that catch, Jack Lambert picked off Ferragamo (Rams' only turnover), and Bradshaw tossed another long bomb to Stallworth to set up Franco's game-sealing TD.

But until Stallworth's catch, it was looking grim for the Steelers.

60 Prevent Slot Hook and Go!

Bud was stealing the defensive signals ( somehow they did not think to change them). Noll started sending in calls via subs and would signal something else. Lambert's interception was signaled as a blitz but he dropped into coverage.

That Bradshaw video earlier in the thread confirms this. Bradshaw also says they knew all his audibles, which is part of why they were struggling. You’re right Jebrick...if they have 3 ex-Steeler coaches, they should have anticipated and changed their signals. Watch the Bradshaw vid if you haven’t already.

It's funny he mentions Lionel Taylor, the receivers coach. He was our neighbor before he went to LA. Very nice guy who drove me home after I crashed my bike.

Harrisons TD has to be first
For me parkers run was second because I liked FWP so much and was so damned fast on that run
Then is the Swann and stallworth and Holmes catches all rolled up ;)

I have the CD collection of that Seahawk run of all the playoff games called by the steeelers commentators. I watch it about three times a year.
