Not only are the six Lombardi Trophies won by the Steelers more than any other team, they placed more all-stars on the Super Bowl 50 Golden Team than anyone else, the NFL announced Thursday.
Seven Steelers players — nearly one-third of the 23 “starters” — plus coach Chuck Noll were chosen to the all-time Super Bowl team as picked by the Pro Football Hall of Fame selectors. All eight are in the Hall of Fame.
Noll, the only coach chosen, also is the only coach with a perfect 4-0 record in Super Bowls. All seven of the Steelers picked for the team played for Noll in the 1970s: Halfback Franco Harris, wide receiver Lynn Swann and center Mike Webster on offense; tackle Joe Greene, linebackers Jack Ham and Jack Lambert, and cornerback Mel Blount on defense.
The only two Steelers Hall of Famers from the 1970s who did not make the all-time Super Bowl team were quarterback Terry Bradshaw and wide receiver John Stallworth. Bradshaw was beaten out by the only other quarterback with a 4-0 Super Bowl record, Joe Montana, who played at Ringgold High School. Swann and Jerry Rice were the two receivers chosen.
No second team was selected.
Super Bowl 50 will be Feb. 7 at the San Francisco 49ers’ new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
