Roger about his life with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1980 to 1990:
I first began rooting for the Steelers in 1980, the season after their victory in Superbowl XIV, after hearing my Grandfather's stories of growing up in Pittsburgh. The first half of my first season as a Steelers fan was great, I watched as the team won four out of five games before hitting a losing streak of three games in a row. After those three games the season didn't improve much and they finished it out with a record of 9-7 (9 wins and 7 losses).
The next season wasn't much better as the Steelers went 8-8 and lost one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, "Mean" Joe Greene. The '82 season showed some improvement as the team made it to the playoffs with a record of 6-3 before a devastating loss of 31 to 28, against the San Diego Chargers. Then during the '83 season the team lost their second superstar quarterback, Terry Bradshaw to arm injuries. However, they still managed to claim AFC central champions that year, with a record of 10-6. As the seasons passed, more of the players from the Superbowl team left the Steelers, and by 1984 the Superbowl team was all but gone. The shining moment of the '84 season was the defeat of the San Francisco 49ers at their home stadium, as it was the only loss the 49ers saw all year and kept them from achieving a perfect season. The Steelers were also once again AFC central champions in the season of '84.
Unfortunately the '85 season was the beginning of a few bad years for the team as they had their first losing season in 14 years, finishing with a 7-9 record. The next few seasons were all upsetting for the team, and the passing of Art Rooney (team owner since 1933) in '88 led them to one of their worst seasons ever, finishing with a record of only 5 wins and 11 losses. In 1989 the team finally began to turn it around, finishing the season with only a 9-7 record, but making it into the playoffs on a wildcard spot. The team won their first game of the '89 playoffs 26 to 23 over the Oilers, before a devastating last minute loss of 24 to 23 in the next game against the Broncos. During the '90 season the Steelers continued to show improvement, finishing in a head to head battle for the playoffs against the Oilers, which ended in a dissapointing loss of 34 to 14.
