Pittsburgh Steelers: Top 25 Greatest Moments in Team Playoff History

The NFL playoffs continue this weekend, and while the Pittsburgh Steelers are no longer participating in the unfolding events, fans can still continue to enjoy postseason greatness in the 'Burgh.

Pittsburgh Steelers fans continue to mourn following their team's early playoff ousting at the unexpected hands of Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.

With one of the more painful endings in the franchise's playoff history (ranked No. 7 on my recent countdown of heartbreaking postseason plays), the defending AFC Champions and their 12-4 record fell victim to the Mile High stage in an overtime that has many fans in the Steel City feeling a mile low.

Nevertheless, while the time for mourning never fully ends, one has to keep in mind one ever so important analogy in handling the downtrodden moments that coincide with fanaticism: the darker the picture, the brighter the negative, just as it is in photography.

In other words, the hard times make all the glory that much sweeter, and no franchise has experienced more of the highest of highs than the Steelers.

For every Rodney Harrison interception, there is a Hines Ward Super Bowl MVP shortly thereafter. With each frustrating Kordell Stewart throw into triple coverage in an AFC Championship Game, there is a solid playoff campaign bolstered by the play of franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Steelers fans who are patient know that the stability and success of the franchise is not a coincidence, and the teams' focus on doing things the right way, a.k.a. the "Steelers Way," will pave the path for great playoff moments in the near future.

For now, opposed to sullying the next few minutes with moments a fan would rather forget, it's time to take a stroll down memory lane and recall the great playoff moments for a proud team. 

Few franchises have this volume of classic postseason moments in their team scrapbook! To help keep you warm during a chilly offseason, here are the top 25 postseason moments in Pittsburgh Steelers history.
