As regular readers know, I am a big fan of the site Behind the Steel Curtain, and the series which they concluded today provides a big reason why.
Mary Rose (aka Ed Gleason) has been sharing his thoughts on what he feels are the 12 most important Steeler games in history (non-Super Bowl games, that is).
Mary Rose is a gifted writer with a deep sense of Steelers history, and the series has been a non-stop pleasure to read. He finished today by publishing his article on the Immaculate Reception.
The Immaculate Reception was, in fact, the most important game in franchise history. Not only was it the first playoff win for the team in 40 years, but it represented a turning point, and the coming of age of the most dominant dynasty that professional football has, or ever will, see.
If you haven’t been following the series, check out Mary Rose’s final installment and then make it your business to read the rest.
