Default If you could bring back one former Steeler in his prime...

If you could bring back one former Steeler great in his prime and put him on this team, who would it be? Consider all things, like current defensive system, how well the player would do with today's rules, etc.

I think I'd have to go with Jack Lambert.

On second thought, maybe I would go with Troy Polamalu in his prime.

Joe Greene

I remember hearing a story, on Mike & Mike, where Golic was talking about a practice in Miami. Greene was the DL coach, and at some point, the D-linemen pissed off Greene, and Greene lined up across from each of them & knocked them back on their asses, saying "Next!" after each & every one.

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.]

Oh, good one. I was thinking the same thing (although, I'd still take Greene).

1. Jack Lambert

2. John Stallworth/Lynn Swann (they could actually catch the ball )

3. Rocky Bleier

Hell, just bring back the entire 70's team.
