    Those Pittsburgh teams had one of the best Defenses I ever saw. Just shut you down to ten points or less

    Terry Bradshaw was under rated and ran a conservative but wear you down offense

    A great team

    I remember the Seahawks teams of the early 80's. Knox brought a much more conservative offense than what had been going on with Zorn and Largent. They had a good back in Curt Warner and their offensive approach was called "ground Chuck". Took them to the playoffs. RIP Chuck.
