As the saying goes, sometimes it is better to be lucky than good.
That is certainly the case. In fact, the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the most successful franchises in sports history, have experienced their share of luck over the years.
The NFL’s only six-time Super Bowl champion, Pittsburgh has experienced its share of luck in important playoff games during its Super Bowl runs in the ‘70s, ‘90s and 2000s.
This is not to diminish the accomplishments of the organization. Led by the Rooney family, the Steelers have been arguably the NFL’s most successful team of all-time, if not the last 40 years.
“Mean” Joe Greene. Jack Ham. Lynn Swan. Franco Harris. Jack Lambert. Terry Bradshaw. Mike Webster. John Stallworth. This list of legends that played on these teams is simply remarkable.
But through the years, luck has certainly been on their side at opportune times.
Will luck be on their side this Sunday when the face the upstart New York Jets?
