Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1998 season marked the first time since 1991 that the Steelers failed to reach the playoffs. Pittsburgh finished 7-9 after starting the season 5-2, losing their last five games to knock themselves out of the playoffs. It was Bill Cowher's first losing record as coach of the Steelers. The season was marked by a controversial ending to the team's Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions, where Jerome Bettis claimed he called the coin toss in overtime as "tails" although referee Phil Luckett heard "heads." The Lions won 19-16 and started the Steelers' losing streak to finish the season. The poor play of Kordell Stewart was cited as another problem, as the fans slowly began to turn on him.show more
