1973 Steelers: One Step Closer
The 1973 Pittsburgh Steelers were still building and they stumbled slightly from the previous season where they went 11–3. Injuries to Franco Harris, French Fuqua, and quarterbacks Terry Bradshaw and Terry Hanratty slowed down the Pittsburgh offense as they managed only a second-place 10–4 record in 1973. The defense offered several All-Pros, making them still one stingy unit. This may have been a disappointing season in the eyes of the fans not having moved closer to a championship, but in hindsight, 1973 was merely a stepping stone bigger things to come in 1974.
This 20-card set includes Warren Bankston, Rocky Bleier, Mel Blount, Ed Bradley, Lee Calland, Jim Clack, Sam Davis, Glen Edwards, Steve Furness, Joe Gilliam, Craig Hanneman, Terry Hanratty, Ernie Holmes, Mel Holmes, Jon Kolb, Ben McGee, Preston Pearson, Al Young, and head coach Chuck Noll.
