Time Team (50th Season)

The Pittsburgh Steelers All-Time Team (50th Season) was named as a part of the franchise's 50th season celebration in 1982. The top 24 players in the club's history were selected: eleven on offense, eleven on defense, one punter and one placekicker.[1]

The team was chosen on the basis of more than 100,000 fan ballots.[1]

This team was supplanted in 2007 by the current All-Time team which was named as a part of the club's 75th season celebration.[2] The updated team includes all the players from this 50th season team except, Gerry Mullins, Sam Davis, Mike Wagner, Roy Gerela and Pat Brady.
