Default Steelers Top 5 WR's of All Time

I was wondering who are the top 5 Steeler WR's of All Time in you, the Steeler experts opinions, here is how I would rate mine:

1. John Stallworth
2. Hines Ward
3. Lynn Swann
4. Yancey Thigpen
5. Louis Lipps

Now this is just how I would rank my top 5, not trying to stir up controversy, just looking to the Steeler Experts and see what your opinions are!

Only reason I didn't include Burress is he sold out for more money and eventually went to jail, Holmes, too much trouble for the Steelers and still is in New York with the Jets. Now I am not taking anything away from them, but they are sell outs, not faithful to the Orginization.

I'm looking at their stats during the time spent in the burgh. I ignored the personal and went strictly business.

Didn't the Orginization want to let Yancey go, after the SB? Yancey wanted to be a Steeler but the F.O. didn't want nothing to do with it?

I think if you factor in the quality of quarterbacks throwing to these guys, Louis Lipps is far and away the best of them. It's easy to be a great WR when you have Hall-of-Famers throwing to you.
