Greatest defensive lineman of all-time, Mean Joe Greene.

I'd like to have Greg Lloyd around - just for the sheer intensity. We're completely missing that right now. I don't think anyone would want to f**k up or they'd have to answer to him!

At first thought I would have said wither Greene or Lambert, but considering our secondary woes, I would pick Mel Blount. Remember they changed the rules because of him, in the middle of his career. He still went to pro bowls and made all pro after the changed the rules. In my mind, no greater Steeler DB ( sorry Rod, you were great but Mel was the best)

Joe Greene.
We need a lineman who can dominate up front, demand double-teaming, and rush the QB.

The bus, Woodson, or Kevin green.

Not sure if lambert would be effective in today's NFL.

Jack Ham would fit nicely. Read plays extremely well, speed (big one for today's game) and made some huge defensive plays over his career - could use some more of that. The fact that he started as a rookie and only missed 4 games in 10 seasons means durability (something I'd love to see more of - although the size of players now I think has a huge impact on that compared to the 70s Steelers who at least to me, seemed more lean than "big".)

Darmonti Dawson .... Not of our lineman are even in the same league as this guy.

Rod Woodson or Greg Lloyd

As Golic said: if a 45 year old man without pads can knock over a bunch of fully-pasded 25 year olds in their prime... well... I can only imagine how truly dominant Joe Green was in his prime.

[Rod Woodson & Mel Blount are a close second.]
Greene was a beast. I've been watching games from the 70's for the last week, and it's crazy how dominant Mean Joe was. There's quite a few snaps where he lines up working against a double team, and simply explodes out of his stance and pancakes both of his guys, and sometimes pushes back a 3rd as well. Seeing him consistently drive the center into the guard and tackle both, single handedly crushing the entire side of the pocket is crazy.
