Default Re: Who's the Better Leader?

Yes those Steeler teams had HOF players, but, IMO Terry was by far the better leader. The defense in those days was deep in leaders, The 2 Jacks, Mean Joe, Mel, but the offense didn't have the leader that stands out except for Bradshaw. A case could be made for Webby, but the WR's weren't really leaders although they are both HOFers. niether was Franco a true leader. Terry called his own plays, played his best the bigger the game.
Ben is a great player, but Ben hasn't had to be a leader. He has had Jerome and Hines to lean on during his career, Not to mention Alan Faneca early aswell. Ben, as good as he is, is just not there yet. Hopefully he gets there....SOON! This team needs that
