Getting back on track . . .

LARRY BROWN, #79, TE/OT, drafted out of Kansas U in the 5th round of the 1971 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brown played as a tight end from 1971-1976, and as a tackle from 1977-1984. During that time, he was one of the few players to play in all of the first four of the Steelers Super Bowl victories (Super Bowl IX, Super Bowl X, Super Bowl XIII, and Super Bowl XIV). He was selected to the Pro Bowl after the 1982 season.

DWIGHT WHITE #78, DE, drafted in the 4th round out of East Texas State in the 1971 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Nick-named "Mad Dog", because of his intensity, White became a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end. Prior to Super Bowl IX, White spent much of the previous week in a hospital, suffering from pneumonia. He lost 20 pounds during that week and was not expected to play. However, he did play,and accounted for the only scoring in the first half when he sacked Fran Tarkenton in the end zone for a safety — the first points in Steelers' history in a championship game. The Steelers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 16-6.

White finished his career with 55 sacks, according to Steeler team records. He retired after the 1980 season and went on to become a stock broker.

Dwight White died of complications that arose from an earlier surgery. A blood clot in his lung, the complication from back surgery, is the suspected cause of death.

Steelers owner Dan Rooney called White "one of the greatest players to ever wear a Steelers uniform".

RIP, Mad Dog. :tombstone

JEFF REED - #3 - PK , Undrafted, North Carolina

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0g6UeDHdTKfSI/340x.jpg

Jeff Reed joined the Pittsburgh Steelers as a free agent in 2002 and quickly contributed to the team finishing the season with 100 points. His unshakeable presence on the field has led to him making several game-winning or game-tying field goals, frequently amidst loud, hostile crowds. Reed proved that he could kick in the clutch during the Steelers 2005 AFC Divisional Playoff game against the New York Jets, as he kicked the 33-yard game winning field goal (after his New York counterpart Doug Brien missed two late field goals) in overtime to give the Steelers the victory. Reed was also a major reason the Steelers were able to compete in the 2005-2006 playoffs, as he kicked two game winning field goals during the 2005 campaign, one against the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football, and another against the Baltimore Ravens on Halloween to give the Steelers two crucial victories. During the 2005-06 NFL playoffs, where the Steelers eventually won Super Bowl XL, Reed successfully kicked all three field goal attempts and converted all fourteen of his potential PATs.

Reed is also involved heavily in his community with charity work such as “Kick For Kids” which donates $300 dollars for every field goal he makes. Also he is involved in Junior Achievement, does commercials for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and helped a family raise money for a 5 year old who had a brain tumor. :drink::tt03::tt02:

BRIAN ST. PIERRE - #2 - Boston College, Round 5, 2003 NFL Draft

http://www.post-gazette.com/images4/20070807wg_stpierre0807_230.jpg

Brian St. Pierre was drafted out of Boston College in the 5th round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was a third and fourth string quarterback for the Steelers in 2004-2005 and again from 2006-2008. In 2005, the Baltimore Ravens signed St. Pierre to their practice squad, activating him on December 8, 2005. The Ravens released him as part of their mandatory cuts on September 2, 2006. He never appeared in a game for the Ravens. St. Pierre became an unrestricted free agent in the 2008 offseason and on March 27, 2008, signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
