My Favorite Steelers of All Time

3. Greg Lloyd
4. Lynn Swann
5. Dermonti Dawson

HM: Antonio Brown - - Incredible work ethic, heart, desire and quickness. He could be very special if he continues his maturation as a player and young man. I am a huge fan of this young man's.


good way to separate the top and favorite, not sure what the original poster wanted with this, but you addressed both possibilities. Problem with both? How do we only pick 5 if we are old?


There's no rule stating you can't make more than one list...I promise; I won't call the forum police and have your FF membership card revoked! Wink

Heck, make a top 5 "from the 70s" list. Then make a top 5 from the modern era list. Then combine/order those two lists into a top 10...then cut the bottom 5 out, and voila! Kind of what I did, though not that methodically...

I'm "old" in comparison to most (not all, however, thank goodness!) on this forum (43). But honestly...recent memory is more powerful than long-term, so I appreciate the more recent accomplishments a bit more. Wrong as it may be...it's the truth, so that's why I only have one "legacy" player on my favorite top 5.

Or, as this YOUR list, I could just make your favorite list for you! Laughing

1. Dermontti Dawson, OC
2. Mike Webster, OC
3. Alan Faneca, OG
4. Tunch Ilkin, OT
5. Jeff Hartings, OC


Cool quite a sense of humor and sarcasm, well taken btw . Dawson was a a top player as well. NFLPA OL of the year after the 1995 season.

Bettis as kind of a general HM to the 90s/00s since he sort of split pretty evenly in production between those eras.

The thing about the 70's is that it was hard to look at a position on the roster and not see something great about it. There were so many great Steeler players and for that matter, NFL players during that era.

Nowadays the elite are truly (usually) a step above the rest.

I know most of us didn't get to see much of the 70s Steelers play but I have always heard the experts say Hamm was better than Lambert. Seems like Hamm doesn't get the credit he deserves. Not to discredit Lambert obviously. Just wonder why he never gets any mention.

Ham is the greatest 43 OLB I've ever seen.

Lambert got a lot more "press" from the common man, so to speak, and it almost got to the point where it has become 'fashionable' to say that Lambert was overrated. He wasn't. Not even close. Both are as good as it gets at their positions.
