It just makes me laugh!!!! It seems that nobody has a window open further than the last few years. UMMMM if you havent all forgot the Steelers have been around for over 60 years. Can we get a bit better thought into this? Just maybe we have some posters that are over 25? Everybody wants to pick the currents. But as i look everybody posting is NEWBY writters(including myself) but I forget we all dont know the History further back than 5 years. Just a little let down. Lets see some originality

Also I must remind you all that BETTIS is RETIRED, his number is available

It's not that i didn't think he was Great!! Probably one of the BEST EVER to wear BLACK N GOLD

Man, I'm only 27 years old so I only go back to late 80's as really following Steelers football.

I picked Hines Ward and Jerome Bettis for my offensive players. Sorry but both fit the Steelers mold.

On defense I went with Greg Lloyd. At least Lloyd goes back to the late 1980's. I can't comment on the 1970's or early 1980's players since I didn't watch them since I was to little. But Lloyd fit the Steelers mold at LB. He played the game nasty and that was a tribute to the "Steel Curtain" days.

Offensive: Probably Hines Ward, though I really liked Merril Hoge and Louis Lipps

Defensive: James Farrior is my guy. During the mid-90s though, I absolutely loved Deon Figures. I know, the guy was a total bum and waste of a pick. But I just loved the guy for some reason.

For all you young people in here... dont get discouraged if you dont know much about the older players from early 80's or before. Mike Webster was one of the greatest Centers to ever play the game, then came Dermontti Dawson he was a great center also. We have had great players in the past and in my opinion we have some great young talent here with us now. So enjoy the present and learn from the past. By the way, Greg Lloyd was one of the meanest LB's in the last decade I have ever seen on the field and sounds like he was the same way off the field. He stayed in trouble with the law after his career with the Steelers for being abusive to his wife/family.

P.S.
All the longer tenured fans dont need to be so hard on the younger fans encourage them instead of bashing them.

I'm shocked nobody's said CASEY HAMPTON yet...

but my current favorite steelers player is probably Joey Porter...with my all-time favorites being Joe Greene (nobody's mentioned him either wtf?!) and TB!
