‘Blitzburgh’ has returned for the 2018 Pittsburgh Steelers

As a 35 year old man, I grew up in the transition years for the Pittsburgh Steelers. You know, those years after Terry Bradshaw before the team drafted Ben Roethlisberger in 2004. While those teams saw some serious success, minus a Super Bowl win, what I remember most was the defense.

You know, the ‘Blitzburgh’ defense.

Greg Lloyd, Kevin Greene, Chad Brown, Levon Kirkland and so many more made up the group which made the moniker a household term during the mid-90s. I loved those defenses, even though they were often exposed in their secondary.
