Terry Bradshaw played a major part http://www.authenticsteelerssales.com/william-gay-jersey-c-1_67.html in what was just dubbed as Pittsburgh's greatest championship team.
In his new book titled "Pittsburgh's Greatest Sports Teams," author David Finoli tabbed the 1978 Steelers are the greatest championship team in Pittsburgh history. The 1902 Pirates are next on the list, following by the 1975 Steelers, the 1935 Crawfords, the 1909 Pirates, the 1931 Grays, Pitt football's 1976 team, the 1925 Pirates, last year's Penguins' team and the 2008 Steelers championship club.
After a disappointing 1977 season, the '78 Steelers dominated the opposition, winning 14 game in the NFL's first 16 game regular season. Pittsburgh then dismantled the defending AFC champion Broncos in the first round of the playoffs before crushing divisional rival Houston in the AFC title game, 34-5.
In Super Bowl XIII, Bradshaw, the 1978 NFL MVP, set a then Super Bowl record with 318 yards and four touchdowns in Pittsburgh's 35-31 victory over the Cowboys in a matchup that determined who would be forever known as the "Team of the 70's." Trailing 14-7, Bradshaw and John Stallworth connected on a then Super Bowl record 75 yards touchdown pass before Bradshaw ended the half with a go-ahead touchdown strike to Rocky Bleier.
The Steelers never trailed from that point forward, Franco Harris' 22-yard touchdown run and Bradshaw's 18-yard touchdown pass to Lynn Swann icing Pittsburgh's third Super Bowl victory of the decade and second victory over the rival Cowboys in the Big Game.
While they went on to win their fourth http://www.divasta.com/luke-willson-jersey-c-1_25.html Super Bowl the following season and two more Vince Lombardi Trophies this century, the 1978 Steelers stand as the measurement by while all Pittsburgh championship teams are measured.
