Pittsburgh Steelers Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
The storyline for the Steelers is the exact opposite as the one in Cleveland. Superstars WR Antonio Brown and RB Le’Veon Bell, two of the most productive offensive players in the league when they’re on the field, forced their way out of Pittsburgh. The good news is that RB James Conner proved himself throughout a whole season without Bell last year and WR Juju Smith-Schuster is a superstar in bloom.
The Steelers hope that LB Devin Bush, the #10 overall draft pick, can step into the hole at middle linebacker that they haven’t been able to fill since Ryan Shazier’s devastating injury. After a near-miss last year, look for the Steelers to be right back in the American Football Conference side of the playoff bracket in 2019 despite big changes on offense.
History of the Pittsburgh Steelers
No sport is more popular in the U.S. than football, as fans have fallen in love with its fast paced, blue collar competition. Few teams have embodied that attitude more than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Playing in the hardnosed city of Pittsburgh, fans have grown to consider those wearing the black and gold to be family. Come out and experience football at its highest level by buying Pittsburgh Steelers tickets this NFL season. The seventh oldest franchise in the National Football League, the Steelers were founded in 1933 by owner Arthur Rooney. Before adopting the Steelers moniker, the franchise was named the Pittsburgh Pirates after the baseball team of the same name (the teams shared Forbes Field as their home stadium). After seven years of struggling to become a winning franchise, Rooney decided to give his team a new identity, renaming them the Pittsburgh Steelers after the city's history of steel workers.
The Steelers experienced unprecedented success in the ‘70s when they won the Super Bowl in 1974, 1975, 1978, and 1979. The fans of Pittsburgh began to view the Steelers as more than just a team, and now the Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the most intense fan bases in the NFL. They are also one of the most prominent franchises in the history of the league – they have won more Super Bowl titles (6) and played more conference championship games (16) than any other NFL team. Each week at Heinz Field, thousands of fans bring their "Terrible Towels" and their Steelers tickets to the stadium to root for their legendary team.
