The Pittsburgh Steelers currently belong to the North Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) of the NFL. The team has appeared in 7 Super Bowl, winning six of them.
Originally called the Pittsburgh Pirates, the team and the Philadelphia Eagles and the now-defunct Cincinnati Reds joined as expansion teams in the NFL in 1933.
The team was renamed the Steelers in 1941 in honor of the city’s major (steel) industry. Pittsburgh’s NFL team, originally known as the Pirates, played for the first time in 1933.
Throughout the 1930s, the Pirates never finished higher than second place in their division or with a record better than .500 (1936).
Pittsburgh made history in 1938 with the hiring of Byron White, a future U.S. Supreme Court Justice. It was the largest contract in NFL history, but he played only one year before being traded to the Detroit Lions.
In 1941 the team renamed the Steelers in honor of Pittsburgh’s most crucial steel industry. However, the Steelers did not have great success over the next three decades.
In 1942 the Steelers had their first winning season in franchise history (more than ten years to the day, something unthinkable today!) and went 7-4 (good for second in the East Division) behind Bill Dudley, who rushed for 696 yards that year.
During World War II, the Steelers suffered a shortage of players, so they merged twice with other NFL franchises to complete the team.
In the 1943 season, they merged with the Philadelphia Eagles to form the so-called “Phil-Pitt Eagles” team and became known as the “Steagles”. This resulted only in a 5-4-1 record.
In 1944 they merged with Chicago Cardinals (now Arizona Cardinals). They were known as the “Car-Pitts” and informally as the “Car-Pitts” or the “Carpets”.
This forced a playoff game at Forbes Field. The Steelers lost 21-0 because the Steelers and Eagles were placed in different conferences after the American League (AFL) and National League (NFL) merger in 1970.
That was the only playoff game on record in the two Pennsylvania teams’ head-to-head history. Quarterback Johnny Clement finished that year second in the league in total yards on the ground with 670.
That was the Steelers’ last playoff game. For the next 25 years, there was nothing else, just pure misfortune. In the pre-season of 1948, coach Jock Sutherland died.
The team struggled throughout the season (with Quarterback Ray Evans, who passed for 17 interceptions and only total touchdowns) and posted a bitter 4-8 record.
The team bit the dust again in the 1949 season after starting with a 6-5-1 record. This was followed in 1950 by a dismal 6-6 record and then two consecutive losing seasons in 1951 (4-7) and 1952 (5-7).
