Super Bowl 47 will be played on Sunday, February 3, in New Orleans, Louisianna between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. For Steelers fans it is hard to decide who to root for in this game. The Ravens are the Steelers bitter rivals, but if the 49ers win they will tie the Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins in NFL history with 6. Many fans have said they just may choose not to watch the game alltogether because of who is playing. So if you decide not to watch the Super Bowl this year here are a few things that you may be interested in watching to pass the time:   1.) NFL Films: The Complete History of the Pittsburgh Steelers – this DVD set includes the Steelers entire history from their start in 1933 as the Pittsburgh Pirates all the way through the 2004 season. It includes the passing of owner Art Rooney, a new coach in square-jawed native son Bill Cowher, the disappointment of Super Bowl XXX, the infamous coin-flip fiasco, the demolition of Three Rivers Stadium, and the team’s relationship with its community. This is a must watch for any Steelers fan and if you haven’t seen it before it would be a good replacement to the Super Bowl. Especially if you are planning on skipping the game anyway.   2.) America’s Game – Pittsburgh Steelers: The Story of Six Championships – The America’s game series may be the best documentary series that NFL Films has put together. This set of six DVDs follows the Steelers through each of their Super Bowl winning seasons. The stories are told by players and coaches and narroted by well known actors. Bruce Willie, Ed Harris, Tom Selleck, and Jon Hamm all lend their voices to at least one tale of Steeler Super Bowl. The 1974 season is chronicles by Andy Russell, Franco Harris, and “Mean” Joe Greene. Lynn Swann, Dwight White, and Jack Lambert recap the 1975 season. Randy Grossman, Rocky Bleier, Joe Greene, and Mel Blount relive the Steelers return to the Super Bowl in 1978. Covering the final of the first four Super Bowls are John Banaszek, John Stallworth, and L.C. Greenwood. Jerome Bettis, Bill Cowher, and Joey Porter narrate the Steelers improbable run in 2005. And Mike Tomlin, Ben Roethlisberger, and Troy Polamalu relive the excitement of the 2008 season. I’ve recommended this series multiple times on my site as well as in person. This DVD set is worth hearing Troy Polamalu’s comments in regards to the 2008 season alone.   3.) Pittsburgh Steelers – The Ultimate Collection – This nine disk set includes the Complete History of the Pittsburgh Steelers as described above along with the “Road to Super Bowl XL” seires and the NFL Super Bowl Collection. The Road to XL DVD set includes 3 hours of action from the Steelers 2005 season including the bouncing of the Bengals, Big Ben’s miracle tackle, and Willie Parker’s breakaway dash. This set also includes the Super Bowl Collection which takes you back to the most celebrated moments from Steel City’s spectacular run in the 70′s. Go back through each winning season with highlights leading up to the big game, and celebrate the great Super Bowl triumphs. Not to mention this set is currently on sale for $27.00 marked down from it’s orginal price of $79.99 only on Shipping is also free on this item for Amazon Prime members!   4.) Make some Steelers cookies with these Steelers Cookie Cutters. Heck even if you are going to watch the game you could make some cookies. I mean reall, who doesn’t like cookies?   5.) For those forced to go to a Super Bowl party hosted by a Ravens or 49ers fan there is a solution for you as well. Just head over to the party, but first make sure you are wearing one of these: IF YOU AINT FOR THE STEELERS THESE ARE FOR YOU T SHIRT. Or you could grab some Steelers Duck tape and tie up your best Raven friend so they can’t watch the game.   All joking aside though this game will be hard to watch as a Steelers fan. It doesn’t matter which team wins Steeler Nation will still be upset Monday morning. However, if you are truly planning on not watching the game or if you even need a gift for a big time Steelers fan check out the America’s game set; you’ll be glad you did. Of all the Steelers DVDs I’ve watched it is by far the best one. I’d also like to say thanks to all the fans of the site. It is growing slowly, but I do appreicate the support. Also, remember to not get too upset about who wins the Super Bowl because it is just a game. At least that’s what everyone keeps telling me.

Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Are No Longer a Model NFL Franchise (Part 1 of 2)

The Pittsburgh Steelers are no longer one of the first teams that come to mind when people think of consistently successful NFL franchises. A model franchise can be counted on to make the playoffs every season with rare exceptions. The Steelers are not in that category. In the 21st century, the Steelers have missed the playoffs every third year. They made the playoffs in 2001 and...

Steelers Backup Quarterback Situation Will Be Interesting To Watch Play Out

The Pittsburgh Steelers will certainly be faced with a backup quarterback dilemma next season as both Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich are once again unrestricted free agents. While there is a good chance that one of the two will be brought back, you have to think that the position will be addressed via the draft or in free agency. The problem with both of those scenarios, however...

2013 Senior Bowl – A Few Potential Steelers Prospects I Will Be Watching Closely On Saturday

The 2013 Senior Bowl is Saturday, and like the rest of you, I will have my eyes on several players that I think might could help the Pittsburgh Steelers. Below is a list of just a few players that I look forward to seeing with a very brief synopsis of each. Feel free to add other names of players that you look forward to seeing play and what you are looking for out of each. DE...

Five Positions That The Steelers Will Address In 2013 Draft

By Jeremy Hritz It’s no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers have several areas of need heading into the 2013 NFL Draft, and while need normally does not dictate who they draft early on, they will more than likely use their later picks to address lack of depth at certain positions. If when the Steelers select at pick 17, the best player on the board happens to be at their position...

Is Steelers Star Safety Troy Polamalu Unfairly Labeled as Injury Prone?

There is no denying the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers safeties, Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu, are getting older. Polamalu will soon turn 32 and Clark will turn 34 during the 2013 season. However, there is also no denying the fact that when healthy Clark and Polamalu are still a very good tandem at safety on the Steelers defense. Regardless of production though the Steelers have...

Is Mike Tomlin on the hot seat heading into 2013?

Only two seasons removed from their last Super Bowl appearance, the Pittsburgh Steelers finished 8-8 in 2012 and missed the postseason. Just a year prior the Steelers literally limped into to playoffs with a hobbled Ben Roethlisberger only to be ousted by Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. With the Baltimore Ravens making it to the Super Bowl and the Cincinnati Bengals having back...

Rashard Mendenhall likely done in Pittsburgh

We mentioned yesterday that the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely redo their backfield for next season.   Even the Steelers’ official website agrees with the idea that at least Rashard Mendenhall won’t be back in the Steel City next season. Mendenhall will be a free agent this offseason and after a disappointing season in which he came back from ACL surgery and the fact that...

Steelers Prepared To Part Ways With NT Casey Hampton?

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that the Steelers are unlikely to re-sign veteran NT Casey Hampton. Hampton, who will be 36 next month, has spent his entire 12 year career in Pittsburgh after being taken in the first-round of the 2001 NFL draft. The decision to part ways with Hampton is due to the team wanting to inject some youth into their defensive line with...

Former Steelers star Hines Ward to play zombie in 'Walking Dead' episode

Retired NFL player Hines Ward is ready for a resurrection, but it's probably not the kind you are thinking of. No, the former Pittsburgh Steeler isn't planning a comeback to football. He is scheduled to appear in the Feb. 10 episode of "The Walking Dead", instead."It was an amazing experience," said Mr. Ward, who will be a zombie extra when AMC's hit...

How the Pittsburgh Steelers Can Again Become a Model NFL Franchise (Part 2 of 2)

Part 1 of this cliffhanger demonstrated how the Pittsburgh Steelers have become a second-rate power among NFL franchises. Ten teams have been reaching the playoffs more consistently than the Steelers in recent years. The Patriots, Ravens, Packers, Falcons, Saints, Colts and Bengals all made it to the postseason at least three of the last four years while the Steelers have only made...

Steelers center pulling for Ravens

Although it may not sit well with Steelers fans, Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey admitted that he's pulling for the Ravens in the Super Bowl. But why?

The Prevailing Trend Linked To Playoff Success? Drive!

By Christopher DiMarino The primary concern that I've had for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the past few years appears to be a key theme in this NFL Playoffs. You see, I believe that the mental component of football is much more important than many lead on. Having the drive to win is vital and can separate otherwise equivalent teams. The Steelers proved a lot in the last decade...
