SALE Pittsburgh Steelers 2009 Season Highlight DVD- "A Fine Line"
The 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers knew it wouldn’t be easy to repeat their success of a year earlier.In 2008, stirring comebacks and late-game heroics carried the Steelers to an unprecedented sixth Super Bowl title.But all too often, the critical plays that closed out wins in 2008 didn’t come in 2009.Of their seven losses, five were by just three points.After starting the season 6-2, a five-game losing streak proved too much to overcome, and Pittsburgh failed to reach the postseason.
However, the 2009 Steelers didn’t lack for big-play performers.Veteran receiver Hines Ward once again surpassed 1,000 yards receiving.Tight end Heath Miller had his best season and earned a trip to his first Pro Bowl.Second-year running back Rashard Mendenhall broke out with more than 1,100 yards rushing, and rookie Mike Wallace led all NFL receivers in yards per catch.On defense, outside linebackers Lamarr Woodley and James Harrison continued to terrorize quarterbacks, and each was named to the Pro Bowl.
All the action from the 2009 Steelers season is here, including their big midseason win over undefeated Minnesota, and their thrilling last-second comeback against Green Bay.The win over the Packers sparked a late three-game winning streak that kept the Steelers in playoff contention until the season’s final weekend.
In 2009, head coach Mike Tomlin and the Steelers were reminded of the delicate balance between defeat and victory, and that contenders and champions are separated by “A Fine Line”.
