Looks good.

One thing that shows how lucky we've been as Steeler fans is Darren Perry, Jason Gildon, and Kevin Greene don't make the cut.

I love the Ernie Stautner pick, but I think I'd rather have Joel Steed.

I know he's new, and I know he was on IR, but I think we have the best punter in team history on the roster right now in Sepulveda.

I probably agree about Sepulveda -- Brady punted for like 2 years but I was trying to avoid Walden...

Steed over Stautner? Blasphemy lol (said in jest) ----- had to think hard on adding Steed and dropping Woodley.....

I think Ham and Russell would have to play inside if this is based on 3-4.

I hope it's Parker, because otherwise he has no business even being mentioned on a list like that.

Well, when trying to draw a 53 man roster from the INCREDIBLE history of the Steelers, a lot of really good guys get cut. It is what it is. :) Can't REALLY go wrong either way.

Yeah I know but who do we sub in there? --- not many alternatives ---- Barry Foster? (Worley -- jk) --- The Rock is on the list and he's one of the weaker ones....

Maybe drop Parker --- add Steed? but that would mean only 4 total RB/FB

or drop Parker and add Kreider? as a FB

looking at a hybrid D playing both 3-4 and some 4-3 ---it's hard when then Steelers shifted philosophy to accomodate the pre-80's

Just like on a real team, you don't need five RBs. I'd drop him and add Ernie Holmes. And maybe switch out one of the six receivers for someone else on defense, but that's not as big a deal.
