Surprisingly no mention of Roethlisberger.


Actually, ANY present-day player (and yes I included Polamalu) on a Top Ten list really doesn't work because there's no way of knowing how it will all turn out in the end.

If you're talking about Top Ten right this minute, then yes, Ben would be on the list. I know that Top Ten isn't asking for "Greatest Ever", but it definitely has that feel (especially judging by most answers) and Ben hasn't achieved "Greatest" status yet.

"Really Good" perhaps, but "Greatest" will take a while.

Honorable mention: Glen Edwards

making the team as a free-agent on his special teams prowess, then known primarily for his ferocious hitting (see ~ Campbell, Earl / ribs, broken), Donnie Shell was a ball-hawking pass-defender, and I believe he retired as the career-leader interception leader amongst Strong Safeties, with over 50 pick-offs

another often over-looked Steeler Defensive Back is Jack Butler, who also had more than 50 interceptions despite playing just 103 games over 9 seasons, in a day when offenses ran-first, and passed 2nd:
his career cut-short by injury, Butler then helped run BLESTO for many years

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07161/792966-66.stm

I think it would be difficult to omit either of these Steeler players when trying to determine an All-Time Top-5 listing of Defensive Backs in franchise history

Joe Green
Jack Lambert
Woodson
Mel Blount
Bradshaw
Jack Ham
Webster
Franco Harris
Polamalu
Hines Ward/Bettis

This would be my guess, the first 7 are in order of when they were on the top 100 players list, and Franco should be next because when he played for the Steelers, they haed a winning record, when he left, they lost.

I'd like to put Ben up there, but I think his performance in the superbowl in 2005 doesn't do him justice. Both Jerome Bettis and Ward had the same impact on the steelers, so to say who's better than who isn't really something I can answer.
Polamalu might not be there because his career has been so short and he might finish the last 5-6 seasons of his career on a nother team and win 5 superbowls, who knows.

I think you're very hard with O'Donnell. He's far from being one of the worst QB the Steelers had. Personally, I rank him 3rd best behind Bradshaw and Ben.
He played very well until the SB against Dallas, and the only difference between his SB and Ben's SB against Seattle is that O'Donnell didn't have a D to save his @ss that day.
Yet, his QB rating for his Superbowl was much higher than Ben's. If O'Donnell was playing bad, then Ben was playing worse than atrocious.

1. Bradshaw _ Yes, I still have a man crush on him.
2. Stallworth
3. Webster
4. Lambert
5. Gary Anderson - Give the kicker his due...
6. Troy - Might be greatest player we have ever had if his body holds up.
7. Ward -
8. Mel Blount
9. Arron Smith
10. Fran Rogel - Solid career from 1950-1958 Played for Penn State too. He always ran 1st play up the middle, hence the saying, " Hi diddle diddle, Rogel up the middle. He's on my list because I had him as a teacher at Highland High School. Cool dude in the 80's.

Worst list - Could not come up with 10...
1. Cliff Stout God I still get mad thinking of how bad this guy was. He is in the Dale Berra wing of sports....
2. David Trout (K)
3. Walter Abercrombie
4.Mark Malone

I'd think Harvey Clayton (burned so-often the Fire Department hung a call-box on his jersey), Darryl Sims, and Limas Sweed would make that list, and if you're going to put Abercrombie in this category, he'd ride the pine behind another 1st round draft pick, Greg 'oh-my-hamstring' Hawthorne, who under-gained Abercrombie 527 to 3357 when carrying the ball

You are right, he played very well that game until he threw not one but two horrible, horrible, horrible interceptions. He is to the Steelers as Bonds was to the Pirates. A maker of a pivital play that cost us big

I never said O'Donnell played very well in the SB, I said he played very well UNTIL the SB, big difference.
This being said, If Ben's 9 completions for 21 attempts, 123 yds, 0 TD and 2 INT against the Seahawks are considered a better performance than what O'Donnell did against the Cowboys, it means that you don't care about the QB performance as long as we win.

Keep in mind that the Cowboys beat the Steelers to win their 3rd Superbowl in 4 years so they were clearly the dominant team back then and stronger than the Steelers. It was not the case for the Seahawks.

Merry Christmas to all of you great Steelers fans;

I watched the program and although Bettis Ward and Troy are great Steelers (although i may include one of them), I am not so sure they rank above some of the best we have had. Here is my list.

10. Mike Webster, The best center of all time!!

9. Jerome Bettis, the definition of Steelers smash mouth football.

8. Jack Ham No OLB better than Jack in his time.

7. Swann/Stallworth They are 1 IMO. Can't have one without the other

6. Rod Woodson ; was on the 75th anniversary NFL all time team and a great player.

5. Franco Harris he made our O go in the 70's

4. Terry Bradshaw The greatest Steeler QB ever ( Ben is NOT close)

3. Mel Blount They changed the pass defense rules because of him

2. Jack Lambert My favorite Steeler and I have trouble not putting him #1

1. JOE GREENE; HE STARTED IT ALL!!!!!!!

BTW an honorbale mention to ERNIE STAUTNER

NFL films top 10 lists are usually made up by votes, Like they'll send out like 50 steeler names to certain sports writers, coaches and former players, rate them from 1 to 10 and then they make a top 10 from the scores. Woodson said himself he wouldn't put himself that high on the list, so I doubt he voted. But most people on the episode who talked about each player voted.

Woodson played more than half of his career with Pittsburgh (10 years). Then one season with the 49ers, 4 with the Ravens and 2 with the Raiders. 3rd most interceptions in NFL history and still holds the record for most interception return yardage and interceptions returned for TDs.

Like someone already mentioned, these lists are made up of votes...so whoever gets the most votes makes the list sequentially. You could do these lists a thousand times with a thousand different voters and every one of them would be controversial in one way or another. There's just too many Steeler greats to put on a top 10 list.

12-26-2010, 05:27 PM
who are the best the top 10 steelers of all time is a relative question; it depends how you look at t the question. no current players would make my top 10 if you want to look at their body of work with the steeler organization; however, if you asked me to build a team to compete in today's league, Troy would definitely be starting. i would start Roethlisberger over Bradshaw, but i agree that Bradshaw is a top ten steeler and Roethlisberger is not, yet. so like i said, it depends you look at the question. i think a lot of the 70's players would do real well in today's NFL; however, i would take James Harrison over Jack Ham if i was building a team to compete in today's NFL. so another words, the top ten steelers doesn't necessarily mean the best 10 steelers. are you looking at a list from a historians perspective or are you comparing talents by today's standars?

let me rephrase the question: if you could pick 10 steelers from any era to build a team around, who would they be?

here are mine:

Roethlisberger (no question)
Greene (would still kill)
Polamalu
Harrison (sorry Ham)
Lambert (would still jack fools up)
Blount (i know that 3 db's are a bit much, but they are so damn good)
Bettis (not a better than harris)
Woodson (corner)
Feneca (because i need an o-lineman)
Ward (because he does it all)

HM: Greenwood, Ham, Porter, Hampton, A. Smith, Farrior, Harris, Stallworth, Swann
