The Best Unexpected Results in Steelers History

This is the all-time worst moments for the Steelers—that turned out to be the best.

There is an old saying: “Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.”  The Steelers are unquestionably the best NFL franchise of the modern era (post merger). 

Among the accomplishments:

  • Won the most regular season games—384
  • Won the most postseason games—33
  • Won the most total games—417
  • Best winning percentage—.611
  • Most AFC Championship Game Appearances—14
  • Most AFC Championship Game Wins/Super Bowl Appearances—8
  • Most Super Bowl Wins—6

The Steelers reached that level by making a lot of good choices, running a class organization, conducting fair and honest business with their players and coaches and, most importantly, having the best ownership in the NFL and possibly all of sport.

But the Steelers have had a little luck on their side as well, and there have been a few instances where something happened that immediately and in the short run could be categorized as unfortunate to something that seemed like a disaster—only for it to lead to being one of the best things that could ever happen to the team.
