The Pittsburgh Steelers are members of the American Football Conference in the NFL and were founded in 1933 by Art Rooney.  The team was originally called the Pittsburgh Pirate, named after the MLB baseball team of the same name. It was common practice for NFL teams to be named after baseball teams during this time. The franchise changed its name to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1940 and has played under the name ever since. The club’s ownership has also remained in the Rooney family for its entire existence, as Art Rooney passed the franchise onto his son.

The Steelers struggled throughout much of their early history and did not qualify for the playoffs until 1947. The club did not play another post season game for twenty five more years. In 1970, the Steelers were one of three teams to switch conferences, moving from the NFC to the AFC when the NFL and AFL merged into one league.

It was during the 1970’s that the football club became a dynasty, winning four Super Bowls over a six year period. They were also the first team to win more than two Super Bowl titles. Much of the club’s success came out of the 1974 entry draft, where the team selected four future hall of famers including quarterback Terry Bradshaw.

During the mid 1980’s, many of the team’s top players began to retire and the team did not see a championship during this decade. In 1995, the Steelers made their fifth Super Bowl appearance, but lost the contest to the Dallas Cowboys. Ten years later, the team defeated the Seattle Seahawks to claim their fifth Super Bowl Championship. The club won a record-breaking sixth Super Bowl title in 2009 when they defeated the Arizona Cardinals. In 2011, the Steelers appeared in a record eighth Super Bowl but lost the game to the Green Bay Packers. Since the 1970’s, the Steelers have been one of the NFL’s most consistent teams, qualifying for the playoffs on 25 occasions.

In 2001, the Steelers moved from Three Rivers Stadium where they had played their home games since 1963, and began playing at the newly constructed Heinz Field. Prior to 1963, the club played at Forbes Field for the majority of the time. However, the club has also played several seasons at Pit Stadium, as well as Chicago’s Comiskey Stadium when the team merged with the Chicago Cardinals for the 1944 season. This was done because many players were unavailable due to WWII, causing many NFL teams to merge with one another. That season, the club went 0 to 10, the only winless season in franchise history.
