Re: Hampton relishes leadership role
I think it is interesting that the Steelers have a reputation for there amzing line of Pro Bowl Centers, that have contributed to our dominate runnung games over the years. If you think about it we have had a pretty amazing run of Nt's as well (at least when we have been Super Bowl bound) that have been a major force in our consistent ability to stop the run. Starting with Mean Joe (technically maybe not a NT, but similar purpose). We made our Super Bowl in 96 with Joel Steed anchoring the middle. And finally the big game in 06 with Casey as a dominate force. It all seems to start in the middle regardless of which side of the ball we are talking about.
