    Super Bowl X. The Steelers did not have a penalty and they lead the league that year if I remember right.

    I will always remember Jack Lambert slinging Cliff Harris to the ground after the Steelers missed a field goal and he was not called for anything...

    get out of here i seen plenty of penalties that they could of called on the steelers but didn't. Lets just face it the refs can control a game folks. Its only a penalty if they choose to call it.

    How does an NFL team play an entire game (and OT) with no penalties accepted against them? IMO it is impossible, well maybe not.......

    Not THAT disciplined! Please. I saw at least three holds and a hand to the face. I can't imagine how many others I missed since those were the penalties that happened to jump off the screen and didn't account for other things which occured on the field off camera. Without the refs, the Stealers have a couple less rings.

    I saw multiple late hits and one out of bounds I think on Harris. Same old Stealers, always cheating (and today , LOSING)

    The SteelWhores got away with multiple holds and at least one pass interference call. I couldn't believe the refs ignored those.

    The Steelers committed several penalties, its just that they were fortunate enough that the refs just so happened to miss every single one of them, even as blatantly obvious as they were.

    ...penalties taken during the heat of the competitive play.

    Discipline is about avoiding penalties pre-snap. Blows to the head. Unsportsmanlike conduct, etc.

    I didn't see Pitt involved in any of those types of plays where it was blatantly obvious.

    Even the ones were they could have been possibly called on Witten and Murray were ones involved with the process of tackling a player.

    From what I could look up, There have been 41 times since 1976 that a team has had zero penalties in a game. That covers a span of almost 8500 games. 3 of those games that I know of for sure have come against us and 2 were against Pittsburgh in only 14 games played against them. 1 perfect game for every 7 against us for the Steelers as compared to the league average of 1 per every 207 games played.

    Even the gentlemanly Roger Staubach gets fired up immediately when you talk about the Steelers and their favorable calls (or no calls) when they play the Cowboys. And you wonder why I think the NFL is dirty.

    the steelers did have one penalty called. it negated a penalty on us creating a repeat of first down.

    why is that not recorded as a penalty in the record books for both teams?
