*PITTSBURGH — *The story of the Super Bowl XLIII Champion Pittsburgh Steelers 2008 season was relived today when the team unveiled its annual season highlight film, "Brothers and Champions, The Story of the 2008 Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers."
The film, which premiered today in the East Club Lounge at Heinz Field, details the Steelers run to their NFL record sixth Super Bowl title, led by second-year Head Coach Mike Tomlin. The 2008 Steelers overcame the challenge of the NFL's toughest regular-season schedule to earn a 12-4 record and their second consecutive AFC North Division crown under Tomlin, en route to an unprecedented sixth Super Bowl title.
The 23-minute film recaptures the Steelers' record-setting performances by the Steelers' top-ranked defense, led by NFL Defensive Player of the Year, James Harrison who recorded the longest play in Super Bowl history with a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Harrison, who earned All-Pro honors and earned his second consecutive trip to the Pro Bowl, led the Steelers with a team-record 16 sacks and topped the NFL with seven forced fumbles. He and his defensive teammates helped the Steelers lead the NFL in total defense, pass defense and points allowed, and finish second in the league in rushing defense.
Viewers were also able to relive the emotion of the Steelers' thrilling run through the NFL Playoffs and their breath-taking final touchdown drive to win Super Bowl XLIII. The outstanding performances by Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger were among the many highlights that enabled viewers to remember the 2008 Steelers season as if it were just yesterday.
""Brothers And Champions" was produced by Bethel Park-native John Weiss of NFL Films, his 19th Steelers highlight project. KDKA Radio's Larry Richert narrates the video, while the Steelers broadcast team of Bill Hillgrove and former Steelers All-Pro Tunch Ilkin are featured in radio calls of game action.
