Default USA Today's All-Time Super Bowl Team

Agree with most of the picks, by and large, but a few left me scratching my head. Gene Upshaw made it at guard, but Art Shell is left off at tackle? The Steelers are very well-represented, though.

Steelers certainly are well represented, but, as usual, Noll gets overlooked, with the nod going to Walsh as all time Super Bowl HC, based on this logic:

He went three-for-three in Super Bowl trips probably would have won a fourth had he not walked away after the 1988 season. George Seifert won the Super Bowl the following year with Walsh's team.

As opposed to going three-for three and then actually, as opposed to probably, winning your fourth to go four-for-four? I guess those teams coached themselves and Noll just showed up post-game for the presentation of the Lombardi Trophy.

Like I said, I agreed with MOST of the picks - this is one of the ones I didn't. Noll was overlooked his entire coaching career - he never won NFL Coach of the Year while he was here, either.

Understand completely - these lists are subjective and Walsh is a very defensible choice. Like the rankings of SB teams, these rankings are great jumping off points for debate and nobody is going to have identical lists.

Only completely off the wall observation I noted in the article , unless it was intended to be humorous, was this explanation of choosing Steve Young (a very good choice) as one of the backup QBs:

A tough choice over Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw and Earl Morrall.

Earl Morrall???!!! Jets 16-Colts 7

Didn't Morrall also play most of SB V for the Colts, after Unitas went out with an injury?

I've already addressed him at length on that issue on the other thread he hijacked. He brings it up here, he'll be ignored - by me at least.

Ok - the USA article is a little hard to follow - did you see what they said about the Qb position? - they couldn't see Bradshaw and Namath playing back-up, so they put Young at no. 2 because he was used to backing up Montana anyway? - hello? at the LB position they could name 4 starters for four lb positions like they do in probowls but instead they name 1 out side and 1 middle? the rest are reserves? - oh well - still interesting and the Steelers are well represented overall - I like that they listed Stallworth ahead of Swann - I have always thought that Stallworth took a backseat to Swann even though he averaged 24.5 yards a catch and had some huge TDs ...

IMHO, Stallworth, not Bradshaw, was the real MVP of SB XIV, and I've heard Bradshaw say this himself as well.

Pardon me for a second here but that is un=F***ing believable. Noll is the only coach with 4 rings and he doesn't get the HC position? I know half the NFL plays the freaking "West Coast" offense BS, but come on!

*grumbles*
