Who do you think was the better receiver from the 70's Steelers, Stallworth or Swann?

Even though Swann was my favorite player growing up, Stallworth was better. He's not the all-time leading receiver in TDs and yards by accident. Bigger, more durable, and over the long haul, a better big game receiver, not withstanding Swann's MVP in Super Bowl X. John was clutch in the last two Super Bowls, including SB XIV when he hauled in the bomb from Terry that put Pittsburgh ahead for good.

It's hardly to answer but I suppose Swann.

Prob. have to go with Swann i have seen him make the big spectacular catches because we all know he did take dance classes so he could just up and make the crazyest catches ever.

Swann was the more acrobatic of the two (though Stally could be quite acrobatic, as well), but overall, I have to give a teenie edge to Stallworth. He had a nose for that ball no matter where it was thrown.
