Everybody has already picked the usual suspects, so I'm gonna change my up.

Dwayne Woodruff - Very good CB during his time as a Steelers probably one of the most underrated Steelers.

Santonio Holmes - As a Steelers Holmes was money and if I could bring that Holmes back to Pittsburgh would do wonders. Holmes and Antonio Brown combo would terrorize secondaries.

Joel Steed - One of the best 3-4 NT, before Snack showed up.


agreed, just too bad Holmes has been such a problem off the field so they say. I was thinking they would bring him back, but also thought they would bring back Harrison as well Embarassed

Long term, no. But he gives the Steelers something that they do not have at the moment which is size at WR.



Stallworth was a hair under 6'3 and his vertical and glue fingers gave him a much greater catch radius than Plax, who rarely left his feet

1. Rod Woodson
2. James Harrison
3. Casey Hampton

Woodson would be the lockdown CB and Harrison would supply the pass rush and bring the nasty attitude on defense. I went back and forth between Hampton and Mel Blount but with Shazier and Timmons at ILB I felt that the stout NT is needed. Plus Harrison's pass rush would help the secondary. I also considered Alan Faneca, Dermontti Dawson, and Hines Ward. I thought about an OT but the defensive players are much better than past OTs.

In what world does Plaxico Burress make it above John Stallworth?


In my world that I get to pick from players like the question said.

Derrick Moye, Justin Brown, Martavias Bryant? Shocked

Right now, are any of those guys as good as a healthy Plex in a his prime?

We once had a 6'8 Wes Lyons. Gotta be more than just height. Plex was.

3 inches and 30/40lbs mean a lot when it comes to the area on offense that this team struggles with the most - the redzone.

Would love to have the hall of fame receiver, but i agree with 'brick. Plex would be a great compliment to what we currently have stocked.

This all day. you saved me typing their names. I tried very hard to get Harrison and Lloyd included for attitude but Snacks innate ability to cause a pass on third down gets him my vote

1. John Stallworth - I agree with what Kethnabb said
2. Jack Lambert - went to college with my dad at Kent State
3. Rod Woodson - probably my most favorite Steeler of all time. It still chaps my arse that he was allowed to leave in free agency and won a super bowl in purple as a FS. Twisted Evil

The thing with Rod was that he insisted on being a CB and being paid as a CB when his body had become that of a safety. SF paid him well and played him at CB and he struggled. He then became a safety with Baltimore. If he would have done that in Pittsburgh he could have played his whole career here and been more revered. His restaurant, Woodsons, may have stayed open.

True, he's still probably my favorite Steeler of all time though.

Not knocking your list since I know you were going for something different, but Steeler fans really overrate Holmes based on one postseason. Before that, he was inconsistent as hell and merely a "good" player.

Holmes was good, sometime very good, but he wouldnt be a great compliment to Brown based on skillsets and there are about 5 WRs from the Steelers past that were straight up better.

Really not understanding why people would take WR over one of our dominant pass rushers from the past, especially since our WR corps isnt that bad and our OLB/pass rush situation is a disaster.

I included Stallworth because I think he would be a Larry Fitzgerald type in today's game but with a bit better deep speed.

that said, if it got down to it, I'd have to seriously considering going all defense

Heck, Rod Woodson at FS and then at one of the CB positions, and James Harrison at OLB (or Lambert at ILB) would be tough to turn down

Lynn Swann -- One of my all-time favorites. Not quite the WR that Stallworth was, just flashier, and in big moments, too.

John Stallworth -- Can't have one without the other...just wouldn't feel right!

Mel Blount -- Need him in the secondary, for sure!

With Stallworth, Swann, and AB, our offense would be nigh unstoppable. I get what 43M is saying, but I'm not as sold on our WR corps. A lot of potential, not a lot of known production. Going all D would be smart as well, but give Ben those weapons, let him run no-huddle, and I have no doubt he has a 4800 yd season with 35 TDs, at least.
