I was going to pick Woodley (younger), but finally I chose Harrison; he's the guy the defensive players elected leader. If I'm going to build around a guy, I'd like it to be the guy who a player would choose as his leader.

The rule is to always build around a QB...and since that isnt an option here...I went with 1) ability/talent 2) youth.....Woodley.

assuming each player was 22 and able to play at the peak of their career, i selected casey hampton. players like him a few and far in between. he is the cog of our 3-4 and with our defense being more in vogue, his stock goes up.

Troy.

Optimist.
Attitude.
HIgh standards.

I went with woodley. He's a young player who will become a leader on the field once he gets a few more years under his belt.

Byron Leftwich

Seriously, I'd keep Woodley. Every team needs a pass rushing stud.

Hines is the obvious choice here comon people.. Think of all the years he's been puttin dbacks on there ass.. Hell even linebackers for that matter. He was smackin ho's long before most of those guys even got done pissin there britches.. And he's done it all with that big ol' smile on his face..

So many terrific Steelers to choose from, but I had to go with Troy. He is the epitome of what a Pittsburgh Steeler should be all wrapped up into one great player, teammate and person - on and off the field.
