Steelers Sideline: Could the Pittsburgh Steelers Be the Team of the Teens?

Nick SignorelliSenior Writer IOctober 10, 2011

In the NFL, every decade, one team stands tall above the rest and claims that decade for their own. 

In the 1960s, the Green Bay Packers were the best, winning Super Bowls I and II.  They were so good that the Super Bowl Championship was named after their coach, Vince Lombardi.

In the 1970s, the Pittsburgh Steelers led by the Steel Curtain won four Super Bowls in six years, a feat that has not been matched since.

In the 1980s, the San Francisco 49ers owned the decade, with two Hall of Fame QBs and the greatest wide receiver to ever play the game.

The Dallas Cowboys owned the 1990s. With the birth of free agency, the Cowboys would win three Super Bowls.

As would the New England Patriots, in the first half of the 2000s.

That leads me to wonder—could the Pittsburgh Steelers become the team of the next decade?

This is the reason that many of you have not seen me here on Bleacher Report over the last month or so.  It took a lot of work to get the things I needed in place to be able to make this column.

Prior to creating my first-ever video column, I spoke with many people and asked if they thought it was something that I should do.  After an overwhelming response telling me "yes," I did it!

Remember, this is a work in progress, but I hope to make it something that becomes a fixture in everyone's weekly views.  I try to be as fair as possible, but honest to a fault.

Please check it out and tell me what you think.  Leave it in the comments either here or on the YouTube page.

If you have any questions or comments, or ideas you would like to see for another episode, please email me at

If I use your show idea on a Steelers Sideline Report, then you will get full credit for it.  If I use your comment, I will mention that it is from you.

I am hoping to do a weekly question-and-answer segment, so please send them in!

Again, thanks for taking the time to check out my video article!
