Heading into the 2024 season, no team has won more Super Bowls than the Pittsburgh Steelers and no team has won more games since the merger. The Steelers won their 500th post-merger game late in the 2022 season. Prior to the modern era, the Steelers struggled but they persevered through the wiles of founder Art Rooney. As a young athlete growing up on the North Side of Pittsburgh, Rooney not only learned the sporting game, he learned politics, which helped him nurture the struggling young Steelers through their barnstorming days of the 1920s, their initial foray into the NFL in the 1930s, their topsy-turvy survival skills of the 1940s, and then into the rugged 1950s as they learned how to win. That winning came in the form of Buddy Parker and Bobby Layne in the late part of that decade and into the 1960s, but it was Art’s oldest son, Dan Rooney, who showed the city the importance of not only the draft but stability in the coaching ranks. Those are the ingredients Chuck Noll used to put together four Super Bowl champions during the 1970s. After Noll came the long-tenured coaching careers of Bill Cowher and Mike Tomlin, who also won Lombardi Trophies.

The details of this incredible history are unraveled within this book, a richly researched masterpiece that will surprise and inform even the hardest-core of the hardcore Steelers Nation.
