Re: In your opinion, what made the 70's teams so great.....
When this team was assembled, we had two distint advantages. # 1, Howie Hack, our chief scout, knew the small backwood schools, that turned out greats, like LC Greenwood, John Stallworth, Joe Greene, Sam Davis, Donnie Schell to name a few. #2, the draft in Febuary alowed us to keep those type of players under wraps. Make no mistake about it, without Howie Hack, there would not have been the super Steelers of the 70s.
