    Default Who is in your all-time Top 10 Steelers list?

    The 'Top 10 Steelers' to debut on NFLN Christmas Eve

    By NFL Network
    Published: Dec. 15, 2010


    The popular "Top 10" series on NFL Network debuts its latest episode, "Top 10 Pittsburgh Steelers" on Friday, Dec. 24 at 8 p.m. in HD, one day after the Steelers' game against the Carolina Panthers on "Thursday Night Football".

    The hour-long episode reveals the greatest Pittsburgh Steelers of all-time, counting down from 10 to 1, and includes interviews with former NFL players and media personalities.

    From Terry Bradshaw to Jack Ham, Rod Woodson to Franco Harris, some of the greatest and most iconic players in NFL history have donned the black and gold. Simply put, the Pittsburgh Steelers have made an indelible mark on the NFL.

    Below is a sampling of quotes from the episode:

    »"I think it's virtually impossible to take the Steelers and make a list from 1-10" - Brent Musburger, former NFL broadcaster

    »"They've got their own wing in Canton, folks!" - Scott Ferrall, Sirius XM Radio

    »"Who did the most to help the Steelers win Vince Lombardi trophies?" - Mark Madden, WXDX Radio Pittsburgh

    »"You are literally having to be one of the best of the best." - John Mullin, Comcast SportsNet Chicago

    »"How could you not have a first ballot Hall of Famer on the list?" - Bob Pompeani, KDKA TV Pittsburgh

    The "Top 10" series provides answers to some of the most hotly debated topics in the NFL. The Steelers are the third team to be featured on the "Top 10" series, joining the Raiders and Cowboys.

    Winner of 100 Emmy awards, NFL Films is widely recognized as the most honored filmmaker in sports. Under the vision of Ed and Steve Sabol, NFL Films has revolutionized the way America watches football and set the standard in sports filmmaking.

    NFL Network airs seven days a week, 24 hours a day on a year-round basis and is the only television network fully dedicated to the NFL and the sport of football. For more information, log on to the NFL Network. NFL.com is the exclusive internet home of NFL Network.

    Bires: Picking the Steelers' top 10 a daunting task

    By: Mike Bires Beaver County Times
    Friday December 24, 2010


    PITTSBURGH -- With so many legendary players in the franchise’s storied history, it’s very difficult to name “The Top 10 Pittsburgh Steelers.” But that’s what the NFL Network will do tonight.

    For the past three years, the NFL Network has produced a weekly “Top 10” documentary series that’s both educational and entertaining. Topics range from the top 10 passing combinations in NFL history to the top 10 linebacker corps ever to the top 10 shortest players.

    This evening at 8 p.m., the NFL Network will present its list of the top 10 Steelers of all-time.

    That’s a daunting task because there are no less than 12 inductees already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame who spent most of their careers with the Steelers.

    As part of its selection process, the NFL Network asked a number of media types who cover the Steelers _ your truly included _ to submit a top-10 Steelers list.

    So without further adieu, here’s mine:


    1. Joe Greene (1969-1981)

    When the Steelers turned to Chuck Noll as coach in 1969, his first pick was a defensive tackle out of North Texas State hardly anyone heard of. “Who’s Joe Greene” was the headline in one of the Pittsburgh newspapers.

    But Greene would go on to become perhaps the most dominant player of his era. He was the rock on which the Steelers built their dynasty of the 1970s. He was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1972 and ’74. He played in 10 Pro Bowls, a franchise record. He also starred in a classic Coke commercial in 1979.


    2. Jack Lambert (1974-84)

    If Greene was the greatest player in Steelers’ history, Lambert may be the most favorite Steeler ever. Fans loved to cheer for the guy called “Count Dracula in Cleats.” He was a nine-time Pro Bowler and the NFL’s Defensive MVP in 1976. The Steelers’ defense in ’76 is regarded by many as the best defense in NFL history, and it was Lambert who was MVP of that defense.


    3. Mel Blount (1970-1983)

    Talk about a freak of nature. At 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Blount was huge for a cornerback. He was strong and tough, but also quick and fast. The NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1975, he was so dominating that the NFL had to change its rules on pass defense after the '77 season. Blount holds the franchise record for career interceptions with 57.


    4. Rod Woodson (1987-96)

    Woodson spent 17 seasons in the NFL but it was the 10 he spent with the Steelers that defined him. In 1994 when the NFL announced its 75th Anniversary Team, only five active players were on it. One of them was Woodson, a six-time Pro Bowler and the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1993.


    5. Franco Harris (1972-83)

    Talk about making an instant impact. After he was drafted with the 13th overall pick of the 1972 Draft, Harris earned NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. In a year when the Steelers qualified for the NFL playoffs for the first time ever, Harris rushed for 1,055 yards. He also caught the “Immaculate Reception” in a 13-7 playoff win over the Oakland Raiders.

    Harris ranks 12th on the NFL’s all-time rushing list.


    6. Ernie Stautner (1950-63)

    Because it’s been 47 years since Stautner’s last game as a Steeler, a lot of fans don’t know much about him. But in his 14-year career, he played in nine Pro Bowls. That’s just one less than Greene’s 10. Stautner is also the only Steeler to have his number officially retired. He wore No. 70.


    7. Ben Roethlisberger (2004-present)

    Why Roethlisberger and not Terry Bradshaw?

    That’s a tough call. After all, Bradshaw has four Super Bowl rings and an 8-2 record in AFC championship games and Super Bowls. But Roethlisberger already has two Super Bowl rings and he’s 4-1 in conference championship games and Super Bowls.

    I just think Roethlisberger, who’s only 28, is a better overall QB that Bradshaw. In his career, Bradshaw threw 212 TD passes but also 210 interceptions. His career passer rating was 70.9. Roethlisberger has a much better TD to interception ratio _ 141 to 86 going into Thursday night's game against Carolina _ and a better career passer rating of 91.9 pass. By the time he’s done playing, Roethlisberger will hold virtually every team passing record.


    8. Jack Ham (1971-1982)

    Technically speaking, Ham may have been the most fundamentally sound linebacker the Steelers have ever had. At one point in his career, he earned Pro Bowl honors eight straight seasons (1973-80).


    9. Troy Polamalu (2003-present)

    Since the NFL first chose its Defensive Player of the Year in 1971, six times has a Steeler won the award. There’s a good chance Polamalu could be the seventh this year.

    A strong safety who’s been to five Pro Bowls, Polamalu is one of the most dynamic playmakers in the league. Plus, he’s one of the most humble players to ever wear a Steelers’ uniform.



    10. Hines Ward (1998-present)

    Why Ward and not Lynn Swann and/or John Stallworth, who are both in the Hall of Fame?

    Ward, who’s 34, is the Steelers’ all-time leading receiver. He has two Super Bowl rings. And he’s one of the best blocking wide receivers ever.

    NFL Network's list:

    10. Jerome Bettis
    9. Lynn Swann
    8. Hines Ward
    7. Troy Polamalu
    6. Mel Blount
    5. Jack Lambert
    4. Rod Woodson
    3. Franco Harris
    2. Terry Bradshaw
    1. "Mean" Joe Greene

    Oddly, earlier this year they did a quick top 10 Steelers countdown on Total Access and it was completely different:
    10. Mel Blount
    9. John Stallworth
    8. Ernie Stautner
    7. Jack Ham
    6. Mike Webster
    5. Rod Woodson
    4. Franco Harris
    3. Jack Lambert
    2. Terry Bradshaw
    1. "Mean" Joe Greene

    I would have a really hard time only including one LB on the list like the NFL Network one did.

    As much as I liked Swann, I think his stats don’t warrant it and he quit the game too soon. I’d much rather see Mike “what I wouldn’t give to put my hands under his butt one more time” Webster make the list. Jack Ham has to make it too, but cripes, who else do you drop off? I’m telling you, 10 just isn’t enough.
