No doubt the Steelers were great.....but we'll take any kind of recognition we get.
Good luck in 07!
I kinda agree. Not to say the 70's Steelers LB's werent't the best. But, LB's are just a few out of 22. For arguments sake, were the Saints soooo bad that if you gave them the top LB's of all time (Lambert, Taylor, etc.,) is it possible that they still might've sucked?
