    This Week in Football's week 1 highlights from the 1970 season.

    Terry Bradshaw's first career start (he was benched and Terry Hanratty got their only score)
    Three Rivers Stadium's first game
    The Steelers had cheerleaders
    And yours truly was 6 weeks old


    And the silver helmeted Oilers beat the Steelers 19-7



    ***Edit***
    Won't let me share starting at the right time.
    Fast Forward to 5:07 for Steelers highlights

    Week 2

    Steelers lose again
    Bradshaw sucks (it the internet was around back then, 90% of you would've given up on him after this game)
    All white uni's look weird


    Steelers @ 6:43

    1974 Week 1

    Finally starting to play like the Steelers that we all know.
    TB still on the bench.
    Yinzers on internet would've run him all the way to Cleveland by now.
    Steelers @ 2:42

    Yep. I was 11 in 1970. Joe Greene was the 1969 draft pick that started it all. :smiley1::cool:

    I think my first game (Forbes Field) was about 10 years prior to TB's first pro game. :facepalm:
