This continuing series pays tribute to greats who aren't, or may never will be, members of the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a rich tradition and one of the longest histories of all teams in the NFL. They originally were named the Pirates.
They have been in Pittsburgh since 1933, and are the fifth-oldest franchise in the league today. They twice merged with other teams during World War II due to the inability to dress enough players to form a complete team.
They merged with the Philadelphia Eagles for the 1943 season and were called the Steagles.
The 1944 season saw them merge with the Chicago Cardinals. They got dubbed the Carpets by many, or Card-Pitt.
Hope you enjoy this list.
Tomorrow the defense will appear.
