Pillers played college football at Alcorn State University and was drafted in the eleven round of the 1976 NFL Draft by the Jets. He was a member of the San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl XVI and Super Bowl XIX winning teams.
Pillers made a game-saving play in the 1981 NFC Championship Game against the Dallas Cowboys. After Dwight Clark made "The Catch" to give the 49ers a 28-27 lead in the final minute, Dallas drove into 49ers territory trying to set up a game-winning field goal. Pillers sacked Danny White, forcing White to fumble, and the 49ers recovered to preserve the win.
