The Steelers Logo & Other Trivia

By October 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Pittsburgh Steelers Logo. Photo: Pittsburgh Steelers. Used with permission.Did you know that the Steelers are now the only team in the NFL to sport a logo on only one side of the helmet? Or why? The Steelers steelmark logo was originally only applied to one side of the helmet (the right side) because the Steelers were uncertain how it would look on their solid gold helmets. Even when they later switched their helmet color to solid black, they decided to permanently retain the logo on just the one side due to the team's new success and the interest generated by the logo's uniqueness.

If that's not enough Steelers trivia for you, then do you remember the Steagles? Or the Steelerettes? The historic Duquesne Incline cars which read 'DEEE FENSE' on home game days? Or how Myron Cope first came up with the Terrible Towel?
