Meanwhile powerful personalities like Bill Cowher and Jerome Bettis loomed large in Super Bowl XL, before passing the torch to the likes of Mike Tomlin, James Harrison and Santonio Holmes, who ensured their places in Steeler lore with outstanding performances in Super Bowl XLIII. Steel City celebrates one of the great franchises in pro sports and focuses on their resurgence in the last five years fired by hard-nosed coaches, gritty players, and a unique stability provided by ownership that is the envy of every other team in the league.
