Pittsburgh Steelers

Schein's score (out of possible 60): 49.5

Ben Roethlisberger's (pictured) off-the-field behavior hurts Pittsburgh, as the Steelers nose dive from the No. 2 slot last year. On the plus side, the Rooney family runs its business with class. And the Steelers really play 16 home games with the crazed Steelers fans traveling to flood every stadium.

So let me get this straight ...

The Steelers drop from No. 2 to No. 7 simply because of Ben?
Yet the Ravens are No. 4 (HELLO!! RAY LEWIS)
And the Patriots are No. 1 ... So I guess cheaters really do win.

I could care less about anyone's rankings. Having said that, Ray Lewis is nothing compared to Donte Stallworth. Stallworth actually killed someone with his own actions. He should definitely move ahead of Lewis on the Raven scale.

Are the Steelers the Model?

By Harvey “Mr. Steeler” Aronson


The Pittsburgh Steelers have been in existence since 1933. That makes them one of the oldest franchises in the NFL. However, they are NOT in the top five of the longest running clubs. The Chicago Bears and New York Giants hold that distinction. The Arizona Cardinals run second. Before you go asking how are the Cards are #2, remember they came out of St. Louis and Chicago before that. The top ten looks like this (year of inception with years of alternate locations, followed lastly by current location):

1. Chicago Bears - 1920 - Decatur (1920), Chicago
1. New York Giants - 1925 - New York (1925-1973, 1975), New Haven (1973-1974), East Rutherford
2. Arizona Cardinals - 1920 - Chicago (1920-1959), St Louis (1960-1987), Tempe
3. Green Bay Packers - 1921 - Green Bay
4. Detroit Lions - 1930 - Portsmouth (1930-1933), Detroit (1934-1974), Pontiac (1975-2001), Detroit
5. Washington Redskins - 1932 - Boston (1932-1936), Washington (1937-1996), Raljon
6. Philadelphia Eagles - 1933 - Philadelphia
7. Pittsburgh Steelers - 1933 - Pittsburgh
8. St Louis Rams - 1937 - Cleveland (1937-1945), Los Angeles (1946-1979), Anaheim (1980-1994), St. Louis
9. San Francisco 49ers - 1946 - San Francisco
10. Cleveland Browns - 1946 - Cleveland

Of those top ten, which is the most respected? The Washington Redskins were for a very long time until Daniel Snyder came along. All he did was try to repeatedly buy a winning team, much like George Steinbrenner in baseball. For Snyder, it has failed every time. The Green Bay Packers are much like our Steelers. Run the same way, managed the same way, almost always treating players the same way. The Packers may be the sole team that might outrank Pittsburgh in any category of ranking the inner workings of a pro football team. The New York Giants run a close third in my book. But who of these 10 oldest teams puts forth the best example of how a team should be run and managed? The Pack? Many will say the Rooneys have done a job above and beyond in running a successful business and professional athletic team. They rule with an iron fist while maintaining integrity and fantastic relationships between management and personnel including the players. It was common knowledge that “The Chief” Art Rooney Sr. always made trips to the locker room before and after games to mingle with his players. He knew EVERY player by his first name. He was in a word…amazing. His son Dan carried the torch onward, and now as he holds the role of “Ambassador to Ireland” for President Obama, Dan’s son Art II carries the tradition forward.

Is this new math? How are the Giants (1925) ahead of the Cardinals (1920) and Packers (1921)?

And what about this?:


The Green Bay Packers are much like our Steelers. Run the same way, managed the same way, almost always treating players the same way.

How are the Packers and Steelers run and managed the same way? One team is a non-profit, community-owned franchise that has a board of directors which is elected by the stockholders. The other has been owned by a single family, the Rooneys, since its inception in 1933, until the recent ownership restructuring in 2008 (the McGinley family has owned a share of the Steelers as well for longer than that, but the Rooney and McGinley families have long been intertwined through marriage that there are numerous descendents who have both Rooney and McGinley blood running through their veins). That is about as far from "run and managed the same way" as you can possibly get.
