I have to say is between Kimo, Hartings, Farrior.....

I go with Hartings because he had shored up one of our very weak positions at the time and has consistantly played at a Pro Bowl level ... (While Having a Bum knee i might add)

. kevin green. hartings has been cowhers/ kolberts most important f.a. signing though. but kevin green has been my favorite. aint he still the all time leader for sacks amongst linebackers? perfect fit for the steelers.

I'll go with James Farrior with Wayne Gandy and Will Wolford running a close 2nd. Farrior was a steal. A very productive LB who can cover. We did however get some very productive years from OT's Wolford and Gandy.

At first I was going to say Farrior:
- If it wasnt for Ed Reed, he may have joined the elite club of Steelers to win NFL Defensive MVP!!!!!

But how about Kevin Greene:
- Was a big big part of a defense that carried a pretty average offense to the Super Bowl.
- In that Super Bowl the D held a Dallas team that has to rank among the 6 or 7 best teams ever in relative check
- Greene was also part of a revival for the Steelers.... Cowher was able to create "Blitzburgh", and Greene may have been the biggest piece of the puzzle (no disrespect to the headcase/animal Greg Lloyd).

Greene was awesome, but Farrior is great and played in the Burgh alot longer
