Franchise History of the Pittsburgh Steelers

First known as the Pirates, the team changed its nickname to Steelers in 1940.  The franchise struggled for its first 40 years but made up for those tribulations in the 1970s.  In one of the most famous streaks in all of sports, the Steelers dominated the NFL during that decade.  Pittsburgh advanced to the playoffs eight straight seasons and won four Super Bowl championships in a six-year span.
