THANK YOU!

granted, all of those Steelers players on the list are infact in the Hall of Fame. but Jerome Bettis is a shoe-in and should be on that list for sure. as the list went on i kept thinking, "where's Bus?" and he was a no show. maybe after the 2011 induction ceremony they'll re do the list, add Ben Roethlisberger and Hines Ward to the list. but who would they replace!? i would say, nobody. just make the list a top 13 Steelers of All-Time! haha!

Isn't it obvious? :noidea:

Cliff Stoudt!

Just kidding of course. I did agree with the pick of Mean Joe. I could never pick just 10 guys....EVER!

The Steelers will eventually be like the Yankees with their all time list when Troy, Hines, and Ben retire...to add to Bettis.

It will be nearly impossible to to a top 10.

I gotta wonder...

Ward?

Lloyd?

Dermonti?

Troy?

How do you fit them in? How do you NOT fit them in? Seems like a top 10 for the Steelers best is more a game of pickupsticks... just grab the first 10 you want out of a group of about 30.

That is a good list of players there.

Ward is one of those guys who personifies the word "Steelers." When I became a Steelers fan in the mid-1970's, Lambert did that for me.

The only quibble I had with the list is that they made Mel Blount #10. I thought Mel should have been #5 or #6. Mel was the prototype for his position, and dominated it during his playing days. They made rules against him. While everyone on the list deserves to be there, I look at Swann and Stallworth and don't see the same individual impact on the Steelers or the game of football. Like I said, a small quibble.

No Bus? :jawdrop:

I agree - there is really no logical way to choose a Top 10 Steelers squad - so many greats over the years. :tt02:

I think if anyone were to be replaced it would be Lynn Swann. Stallworth was a more complete receiver. DIdn't have the same leaping ability as Swann. Bettis being off that list is laughable.

The Steelers are like the Yankees, Red Sox, and the Cowboys. It's impossible to do a top 10 with them. There are too many great players.

Your right. A top 10 is almost impossible to pick, but the thing that stand out most to me about this list is Mel Blount all the way down at 10.
