Default Re: Pre 1970 Steelers

I do. We had some great guys then. Gary Ballman was a WR in the hines Ward mold. Buzz Nutter was a pretty good center. In addition to JHJ we had Cannonball Butler and Dick Hoak. On defense there was Big Daddy Lipscomb, as great a DL as you'll find in the modern era. Ed Brown passed for almost 3000 yards in '63.

The problem was the culture of losing. Once Noll changed that, there was no looking back.
