Pittsburgh Steelers: One-and-thirteen in 1969 !!!!
« on: November 25, 2019, 10:10:09 am »
As the oldest boy on this thread,I remember when the Steelers were the league's laughingstocks . In 1969,The Steelers' lone win was 16-13 over my Lions,and occurred only because the now-deceased Lions quarterback Bill Munson's would-have-been game winning touchdown pass for fullback Bill Triplett struck the crossbar (not until '74 would the goalposts be re-located to the back of the end zone from the end line ),rendering the toss incomplete,ending the game and giving the Pittsburghers their lone victory in the 14-game season of that era which would be lengthened to its present sixteen tilts in '78 .)
Nineteen-sixty-nine was Steelers Coach Chuck Noll's rookie campaign ,and after Bradshaw ,Swann,Stallworth,F. Harris,The Steel Curtain,Lambert,Shell,Blount,etc. were drafted,the rest became NFL Hall-Of Fame history .

The NFL kept the post at the goal line until 1974, when they were moved back to the rear of the end zone.

Move it back to the goal line dammit.
