It probably would have been Johnny "Blood" McNally from the 1930's. In 1963, he became the first Steelers player to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

What was the old Pittsburgh Steelers logo?

Originally founded as the Pittsburgh Pirates by Arthur (Art) Joseph Rooney on July 8, 1933, the Steelers changed their name in 1940 in an attempt to generate some fan support and involvement. Fans were encouraged to send their suggestions to the team; several nominated the winning name Steelers to reflect the city's primary source of employment. The famous three-star Pittsburgh Steelers logo was a bit longer in coming, however. Helmet logos first became popular in 1948. The Steelers' only concession to the new logo craze, however, was to add the players' numbers and a black stripe to their distinctive gold helmets. In 1962, Republic Steel of Cleveland approached the Steelers and suggested that they consider the Steelmark, the insignia used by the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), as a helmet logo to honor Pittsburgh's steel heritage.

How did the Pittsburgh Steelers get their name?

Because they represent the steel mills in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is famous for its steel mills. When the Steelers entered the NFL in 1933 they were known as the Pirates. A contest was held by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 1940 to rename the team and Steelers was chosen. This may have had a lot to do with the large steel industry located in Pittsburgh and its surrounding area. Yes, the choice of the Steelers name is related to the steel industry. In fact the Steelers logo is actually the Steel Logo created in 1959 to help identify products made of steel. The three star like shapes represent the raw materials used to make steel. Those materials include iron ore, coal, and limestone. See Web Links for an image of the "Steel Trademark" See Web Links for more information on Pittsburgh and the steel industry

The logo's meaning was later amended to represent the three materials used to produce steel: yellow for coal; orange for iron ore; and blue for steel scrap.

Did Frank Collins play for the Pittsburgh Steelers?

There is no Frank Collins listed on the Pittsburgh Steelers all-time roster because he played prior to the internet and was on the practice squad and/or not a starter and eventually cut. There are several articles in archives and I've talked to several well known starters from the Steelers who know him well and have played with him and have described him as a short but very tough and fast back. He played 10-12 years from the mid 70's to mid 80's between the NFL, USFL, and Canadian League. He may not have been a starter or played on practice squads in the NFL, but did see playing time and even scored a couple touchdowns for the Steelers. He was a local star from Beaver Falls, PA. He was drafted out of the University of Utah. And spent time playing in Pittsburgh, Washington, Cincinnati, and Chicago, as well as in Canada. He made a nice life for his family playing ball. I've found numerous articles in archives from all cities. His nickname was "Frank the Tank". When the internet first came on the scene, players had the option to "op-out" of their information being available on the internet, which he did. If you call the Steelers office they also verify his NFL career, including the time he spent at the Steelers. He's made repeat appearances at the Rooney's annual Walk/Run, where his is introduced with his bio by the Steelers representative.

Which franchise is older the Dallas Cowboys or the Pittsburgh Steelers?

Steelers are the older franchise. On January 28th, 1960, Dallas was granted an NFL franchise. The team was first known as the Dallas Steers, then the Dallas Rangers before settling on the name "Cowboys" for the 1960 season. They notched their first preseason win with a 14-3 victory over the New York Giants on August 27th, 1960. Their first regular season game as an NFL franchise was played at the Cotton Bowl on September 24, 1960, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which they lost 35-28. The Cowboys recorded their first non-losing game with a 31-31 tie with the New York Giants on December 4th, 1960. They ended their inaugural season with an 0-11-1 record. However, the Pittsburgh Steelers were founded on July 8, 1933. They are the seventh-oldest franchise in the NFL. The Pittsburgh team was known as the Pirates until 1940. In 1940, management held a team naming contest in which a fan submitted the name Steelers in homage to the city's predominant industry. In 1962, the Steelers adopted the "Steelmark" logo, which had been created by U.S. Steel Corporation and later turned over to the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) so that the design could represent the industry as a whole. While other NFL teams adopted logos during the 1950s, the Steelers simply added the players' numbers to the side of their gold helmets. It was at the suggestion of a Cleveland company, Republic Steel, that the team began to apply the Steelmark to its helmets. Unsure how well the logo would look against a gold background, the team elected to place the Steelmark on just one side. The word "Steel" inside the logo was changed to "Steelers" with the permission of AISI. When the team played in the 1962 Playoff Bowl, management, to mark the occasion, painted the Steelers helmets black, a change which served to better highlight the logo. The new combination was so well received that the team decided to make the look permanent. As a result, the Steelers became the only NFL team with its logo on just one side of the helmet. So, in sum, the Steelers are the older franchise. The Cowboys logo (lone star) and color scheme was adopted 2 years earlier than the current Steelers logo (the AISI Steelmark) and black helmet.
