Copy and Paste. Ctrl C + Ctrl V. Apologies for any clerical errors in here. Mike Tomlin said that was what happened to the Steelers week one depth chart when Kenny Pickett was listed as the third string QB behind Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph. Pickett is in fact the backup. The guys had their fun with that. So now that it's settled, what does it mean for Sunday? How much of a leash does Trubisky have as the starter and a captain? A lot of blame was thrown on the Bears for Trubisky's struggles in Chicago – are we sure Matt Canada can fix that? Poni thinks Tomlin is looking ahead to when Pickett could start.  KDKA TV's Bob Pompeani joined the show. Bob had his hands full earlier today with the Steelers' technical difficulties during the Mike Tomlin press conference. Bob explained what happened with the Steelers coverage of the press conference today. He believes the depth chart incident was a “clerical error,” as Tomlin said.

The BIG Steelers announcement from today: Franco Harris will have his number retired by the franchise during the Christmas Eve matchup with the Raiders this year for the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception. This will only be the third jersey retired by the Steelers, following Ernie Stautner and Joe Greene. Does this open the door for more legendary players to have their numbers retired by the team, since there are more qualified players than Franco to not have the honor? The guys think Franco's involvement with the team over the years was a big deciding factor.  Steelers insider Ray Fittipaldo from the Post-Gazette joined the show. Ray believes the clerical error that resulted in listing Kenny Pickett as the third QB in yesterday's release. Ray is happy the switch was made because he feels Pickett should be the team's backup on Sunday. Ray said Devin Bush being a starter doesn't mean that he's safe to keep that spot and Robert Spillane is right behind him awaiting his chance. He got into who may have play calling duties for the defense on Sunday. Ray commented on Mason Rudolph and where he might be mentally after being thrown around the ringer again. The guys asked Ray about the team captains and he shared that Mitch Trubisky being a captain is normal – Mike Tomlin has only twice not named the starting QB the captain. Ray predicts the Steelers to finish 8-9 and also referenced offensive line trouble.

He was overly excited because he didn't expect the Steelers to have a chance at picking him. He said he's watched some of Kenny's games and “he's a player.” Franco gave his expectations for Pickett going into the season. He said it's a tough adjustment to the NFL, but Kenny provides a lot of promise for the city and organization. The guys asked Franco what he thinks of the new Harris in town – Najee Harris – and how impressed he was by his rookie season. Franco plead the fifth when asked if he was more excited about announcing Kenny Pickett (Pitt) or Pat Freiermuth (Penn State) last year. Franco is fired up over the combination.

Pitt football has lost the best wide receiver in the country as Jordan Addison has entered the transfer portal. The guys debated who is most at fault here and if there's any foul play between Pitt, USC and Addison.  Hall of Fame Steelers running back Franco Harris joined the show. Franco reflected on what it was like to announce Kenny Pickett's name Thursday night at the NFL Draft. He was overly excited because he didn't expect the Steelers to have a chance at picking him. He said he's watched some of Kenny's games and “he's a player.” Franco gave his expectations for Pickett going into the season. He said it's a tough adjustment to the NFL, but Kenny provides a lot of promise for the city and organization. The guys asked Franco what he thinks of the new Harris in town – Najee Harris – and how impressed he was by his rookie season. Franco plead the fifth when asked if he was more excited about announcing Kenny Pickett (Pitt) or Pat Freiermuth (Penn State) last year. Franco is fired up over the combination.

Endlessly curious about the origin of legends and myths, he is considered a global authority on the creation of iconic, “larger-than-life” brands that attract legions of customers and top talent – without having to use “pushy” marketing tactics. Some organizations he has worked with have achieved 15-30X financial growth while becoming a much coveted and highly desirable “Category of One”. His fascination with “legends” likely dates back to the age of 11, watching the “Immaculate Reception”, December 23, 1972, as Franco Harris galloped into NFL history. Today, that curiosity extends to dissecting how the world's top brands become - simply irresistible. Everything from Apple & AC/DC to Lulu Lemon and Led Zeppelin. Specifically, his research focuses on small, but mighty giants that exert the same magnetic, pulling power similar to what NIKE does with shoes and Harley Davidson with motorcycles. These “Big Little Legends” include historic Café Du Monde in New Orleans; world famous, Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle and Webers on Highway 11 in Northern Ontario. Gair's riveting keynote presentations and hands-on workshops are packed with real-life stories supported by decades of in-the-trenches business experience. Described as a “shock stick of energy”, Gair delivers electrifying, uplifting presentations – both live and virtual - that inspire everyday people to stand apart from the crowd, unleash their inner greatness and build an enduring legacy. He has worked with some of the world's most dynamic organizations, including the Apple Specialist Marketing Group, Caterpillar, NAPA, Leo Burnett (Taiwan), Virginia Tech and others, while sharing conference stages with business icons such as Richard Branson and Gene Simmons. His accomplishments include: • Awarded “Speaker of the Year” by TEC Canada. • Recognized as a Vistage ‘Top Performer' in 2020. • Upwards of 600 appearances with Vistage International, the world's largest CEO Peer Advisory Group. • Best-selling author of Big Little Legends, available through Amazon.com, Indigo, Barnes & Noble, and more. • Podcast Host: “The Leadership Standard” with TEC Canada. A former broadcaster, Gair racked up 10,000+ interviews and 30,000+ broadcasts in an award-winning radio and television career. The son of a former pro golfer from St. Andrews, Scotland, Gair is a military history buff, an avid supporter of the Pittsburgh Steelers and a card-carrying Tennessee Squire. He prefers Jack Daniels on the rocks, a frosty Moosehead beer and is a life-long fan of Van Halen who believes both versions of the band with David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar should be considered legendary. A native of Moncton, NB, he currently resides in London, ON with Dana and their brood of two cocker spaniels (Theodore & Sophie) along with a beagle-mix rescue named Maggie. Big Little Legends is his second book.

By the fall of 1979, Pittsburgh was known as the City of Champions. That October, the Pirates defeated the Baltimore Orioles to win the World Series, their second championship of the decade. Meanwhile, the Steelers had constructed a dynasty, boasting three world titles over the past five years. The fan base no longer hoped for victories. Now they expected them. So the standards were high for the 79 Steelers. But every player on the team was confident it could meet them. Once you have the taste of victory, it's awful hard to give that up, recalled John Banaszak. The attitude was: Were going to win this every year. Banaszak was one of several lesser-known Steelers who played a prominent role that year due to injuries. Joe Greene, Jack Ham, Franco Harris and Lynn Swann, all future Hall of Famers, were lost for parts of the season. But their backups capably filled in the gaps, and the Steelers went 12-4 during the regular season enroute to a win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl XIV.

Was haben Joe Greene, Mike Webster, Terry Bradshaw und Franco Harris gemeinsam? Sie prägten eine Franchise, die zwischen 1974 und 1979 vier Super-Bowl-Titel holte und lange Zeit das Nonplusultra in der NFL war. Und sie spornten mit ihren Erfolgen die nächsten Generationen an, große Fußstapfen nicht nur zu füllen, sondern auch weitere Vince-Lombardi-Trophäen nach Pittsburgh zu holen. Und wusstest du eigentlich, dass der einzige in Deutschland geborene Hall of Famer bei den Steelers zur Legende wurde?

Opening It's time for… Lombardi Memories. A show that takes you back in time, into January or February, to the greatest one-day spectacle in all of sports. This is the every-other-Tuesday podcast that looks back at each and every one of the 50-plus Super Bowls and tells the story of who won and why. For the fan who needs more than a boxscore, this podcast goes drive-by-drive, play-by-play through the most dramatic games in history. I'm your host, Tommy A. Phillips, and you can visit my website at tommyaphillips.com where you can find all of my books. Today we have Super Bowl XIV, which was held on January 20, 1980 in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California between the three-time and defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers and the first-time NFC champion Los Angeles Rams. As always, we have a pop quiz, and then homework at the end of the episode. The pop quiz question for today is: the Rams made it to the Super Bowl with seven regular-season losses. What two other teams have reached the Super Bowl with seven losses? The answer will come at the end of the podcast. Prelude to Super Bowl XIV The defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers were rather vulnerable in 1979. They only barely won their season opener at New England, then suffered two losses in three games in midseason. They got killed 35-7 by the Chargers, and they lost an emotional game late in the season to Houston. Having said all that, they still finished 12-4 and won the AFC Central. The Steelers won an easy divisional round game over Miami, 34-14. In the AFC Championship Game against Houston, the Steelers held a tentative lead when the Oilers seemingly completed a touchdown pass that got overruled by the officials. Some say it cost Houston the game, I say it didn't. Pittsburgh won by two touchdowns anyway, 27-13, and advanced to its fourth Super Bowl. Pittsburgh was led by quarterback Terry Bradshaw, who had a monster year with 3,724 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also threw 25 interceptions, making his passer rating only 77.0. But boy, did he light it up in the air! Receiver John Stallworth caught 70 passes for 1,183 yards and eight touchdowns, leading the team in all categories. Receiver Lynn Swann had 41 catches for just over 800 yards and five scores, and tight end Bennie Cunningham caught 36 passes for just over 500 yards and four touchdowns. Running back Franco Harris led the ground game with 1,186 rushing yards and 12 total touchdowns. The L.A. Rams were not the type of team you'd expect to see in the Super Bowl. They were 4-5 at midseason, and 5-6 after Week 11. But they won four games in a row to take the NFC West crown, and they made it into the playoffs as the lowest-ranked NFC division champion. They then narrowly defeated the #1-seeded Dallas Cowboys 21-19 in the divisional round to advance to the NFC Championship Game at Tampa Bay. What was it about the Rams and Buccaneers playing low-scoring NFC Championship Games? They'd have a similar low-scoring affair 20 years later. As for now, the Rams beat the Bucs 9-0 to advance to their first Super Bowl. Quarterback Vince Ferragamo took over for Pat Haden at midseason, and his numbers were not that great: 48.2 completion percentage, just five touchdowns to ten interceptions, and a 49.0 passer rating. But the Rams succeeded thanks to their running game – Wendell Tyler ran for over 1,100 yards – and their defense. The Youngbloods were a force to fear on defense, and the Rams had great defensive backs such as Nolan Cromwell and Dave Elmendorf. The Rams could keep any game close because of their strong defense. First Quarter The Rams won the toss and chose to receive. They went three-and-out and punted it to Pittsburgh. The Steelers got their offense going with a run by running back Rocky Bleier up the middle for a first down at the 32. He came close to getting another first down, and Harris picked it up from there. Bradshaw then threw over the middle to Harris, and he picked up 32 yards

Phillips, and you can visit my website at tommyaphillips.com where you can find all of my books. Today we have Super Bowl XIII, which was held on January 21, 1979 in the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida between the three-time AFC champion and two-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers and the five-time NFC champion and defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys. As always, we have a pop quiz, and then homework at the end of the episode. The pop quiz question for today is: what unusual special teams feat was accomplished in both this Super Bowl, and also the next Super Bowl between the Cowboys and Steelers? That would be Super Bowl XXX, which had something that also happened in this game. The answer will come at the end of the podcast. The NFL expanded to a 16-game schedule in 1978. That would remain the season length for the next 42 years, with the exceptions of the 1982 and 1987 seasons, both of which were affected by player strikes. The NFL also added a second wild card to each conference, meaning that the two wild cards would play in a wild card game, and the three division champions got first-round byes. The Steelers romped right through their first 16-game schedule, winning their first seven games and going on to win 14 of 16 games. They had little trouble in the playoffs, dispatching Denver 33-10 and beating up on Houston 34-5 in the AFC Championship Game. They were led by quarterback Terry Bradshaw, who threw for 2,915 yards and 28 touchdowns. Running back Franco Harris ran for over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns. Receiver Lynn Swann led in all receiving categories with 61 catches for 880 yards and 11 touchdowns, but John Stallworth was right behind him with 41 catches for 798 yards and nine scores. Dallas's road to the Super Bowl was much more of a bumpy ride. After starting out 2-0, the Cowboys lost four of their next eight games and sat at only 6-4 at midseason. But they turned things around, winning all of their final six regular-season games, and most of them by big margins. The Cowboys then got by Atlanta 27-20 in the divisional round before beating Los Angeles 28-0 in the NFC Championship Game. The Cowboys were led, as they were a year before, by quarterback Roger Staubach, who threw for 3,190 yards and 25 touchdowns. Running back Tony Dorsett ran for 1,325 yards and seven touchdowns. Running back Robert Newhouse had another 584 yards and eight scores. The Cowboys had five players catch at least 34 balls, with Preston Pearson leading in catches with 47, and Tony Hill leading in yards with 823. First Quarter                Chicago Bears founder George S. Halas tossed the coin, which came up heads. The Cowboys won and chose to receive. Receiver Butch Johnson took the kick back to the 28. Running back Tony Dorsett ran it twice to start the game, and he took the ball into Pittsburgh territory at the 47. After running back Robert Newhouse was stopped for no gain, Dorsett took a pitch from quarterback Roger Staubach and made a first down at the 34. On the next play, however, the Cowboys tried a trick play. Receiver Drew Pearson fumbled when trying to get the ball from Dorsett, and defensive tackle John Banaszak recovered for Pittsburgh.                Running back Franco Harris tried a couple of runs, going nowhere to start the drive. Quarterback Terry Bradshaw converted on third down, finding...

Joe Coohill is a historian, author, and Pittsburgher who hosts the Professor Buzzkill podcast, where he busts history myths on each episode.    Is there a 4th river in Pittsburgh?  There is not a 4th river in Pittsburgh. But Downtown Pittsburgh does sit on an aquifer that was used to help cool buildings.  Are there bodies in the Westinghouse Bridge? A popular myth than workmen fell into the wet cement. Read more about why this is not the case in Professor Buzzkill's article on the Westinghouse bridge for Steel This Magazine.  The misconceptions about the immaculate reception The game where Franco Harris made this famous catch, was blacked out in Pittsburgh. The only people who saw the immaculate reception on television were folks who were watching the game outside of the Pittsburgh television market.  Read more about this misconception in Professor Buzzkill's article on the immaculate reception for Steel This Magazine.  Doc Ellis was NOT high on LSD when he pitched the no-hitter   Even Snopes says it is true. So it must be true?  It is a common belief that Doc Ellis, a pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, pitched a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres on June 12, 1970.    While Doc Ellis claims this is true and there is a documentary about this no-hitter, “No No: A Documentary” is an entire film about Doc Ellis pitching a no-hitter while high on LSD.     This story has captivated Pirates and baseball fans for years. This animated short by James Blagden about the no-hitter has over 5 million views on YouTube.  The missing B-25 bomber in the Monongahela river   On January 31, 1956, a B-25 bomber crashed into the Monongahela River.
