Overview

Who are the men made of steel? In this behind-the-scenes look at the AFC Conference championship team, Jim Wexell digs deep to bring out the stories and legacies which have defined this NFL empire for the last seventy years. Through interviews with players, coaches, and managers, Wexell captures the determination and brashness that has made Pittsburgh the powerhouse of football.

In Pittsburgh Steelers: Men of Steel, fans will get to relive the Steelers’ most defining moments on and off the field. Why won’t Frenchy Fuqua talk about the “immaculate” reception of 1972? What drove Rod Wilson to get back on the field despite a torn ACL and play in Super Bowl XXX? What made Jack Lambert the most “raucously just” Steelers player of all time?

Readers will revisit the Steelers’ most memorable characters from past and present. From Elbie Nickel’s historic plays in the 1950s to Super Bowl XLV, Pittsburgh Steelers: Men of Steel tells it all. This all-encompassing book of Steelers stories is a must-have for any fan.

Wexell's book captures the essence of what it means to be a Pittsburgh Steeler. The short stories on some of the many colorful players who played for the Steelers grab your attention and make it an easy read. One of my favorite quotes came from Jack Lambert, talking about how he couldn't imagine making the money players do today. 'I don't even have a $30,000 watch. When my watch breaks, I go to Walmart to get another one. Timex works fine for me.' This a book I would recomend to anyone who can't get enough of the Steelers, as well those who know little but would like to learn more about players who made this team one of the NFL's most storied and successful franchises.
