Top Ten Pittsburgh Steelers Players of All Time

The Top Ten

Mean Joe Greene Charles Edward Greene, better known as "Mean" Joe Greene, is a former American football defensive tackle who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League from 1969 to 1981.

I can't knock anyone on this list cause they're all Steelers, but Mean Joe has got to be at the top. If you saw what the Pittsburgh Steelers looked like before Mean Joe was drafted, it was sad. He was the best player on the best defense in the history of football and changed the Steelers from losers to winners!

#1 Pittsburgh Steeler of all time. Mean Joe was the catalyst that changed a perennial loser into the Steel Curtain & the team of the 1970s.

I think joe Greene is the best player of the team and I think that this list is really accurate

Mean Joe Greene he is part of history. New guys are good but Green is the Best

Troy Polamalu Troy Aumua Polamalu is a former American football strong safety who played his entire twelve-year career for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

Love him! This man is the DEFINATION of a football player! He's all into this game gives 100% all the time he's hands down the best safety I've ever seen! Plus he's an amazing human being hopefully he will be a Steeler for many more years to come! Steeler football is all about defense and Troy is the exclamation point on this team!

Troy has pulled plays out of the air just when you thought it was over. He should definitely make the top 10, but lets not forget, it's the team work that makes the Steelers great...

He is a playmaker and game changer. Opposing QB's base their entire offensive plan around avoiding him... And nobody is more altruistic off the field

How can you not like troy polamalu? He's hard working and he's a beast on the field! One of the greatest football player of all time

Ben Roethlisberger Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger, Sr., nicknamed Big Ben, is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

He's a role model? He's been accused of inappropriate behavior towards women.. Twice! He's an ego maniack who's glory days have been over for years

He is what the steelers stand. He is tuff as nails when u think he is hurt and can't go on he comes back better then ever

Big Ben is just so awesome he is the best quarterback on the steelers team

He is my favorite player and I think he is a really good quarterback.

Jack Lambert

I think that he really should of been in the #1 spot! To me, mean Joe Green didn't play anywhere near as good as Jack Lambert! I mean at least put him in the #2 spot for sure!

Reflected the city in which he played. Rough, tough, no nonsense and intense. His style of play was emulated by every high school linebacker in America.

Together, Jack & Terry were the best I can remember, to make them winners on both sides of the ball (not that they both didn't have a lot of helpers).

Jack is the greatest period.

Terry Bradshaw

He brought the Steelers from lovable losers to super bowl winners.

He is way better than Big Ben and I'm a Steelers fan.

Come! Terry Bradshaw is the best hands down!

Led the Steelers to 4 Super Bowls in 6 years

Jerome Bettis

Franco Harris has more rushing yards then Jerome Bettis

A mack truck who was also nimble of his feet

This guy trucked Brian Urlacher

He's the bus no-one can stop him

Franco Harris Franco Harris is a former American football player. He played his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks. In the 1972 NFL Draft he was picked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round, the 13th selection overall.

The Imaculate reception is what saved the steelers and led them to become the greatest NFL team of the super bowl era.

Mean Joe Greene said they didn't start winning until Franco Harris.

With out him they would have not won all those super bowls

The man, and he's Italian. What's better than that?

Lynn Swann

Its Lynn Swann for me. Probably the greatest athlete in NFL history. Who catches the ball out of bounds in midair like a ballerina then lands back in. He played on another team other than Pitt he would have crazy numbers. He also played half his career in a dead ball era where wrs couldn't get into routes. The receptions he made vs Dallas in the first SB matchup in 76 were when the dB's could do like jack my opinion

Lynn was the most acrobatic and graceful receiver in NFL history. Truly a treasure of the best Steelers team in history.

He was probably the best wide receiver there ever was. Between him and Jerry Rice.

Hines Ward

He is simply Unstoppable. Agreed without that amazing pass from Ben Roethlisberger Ward would not be able to make such huge runs leading to Touch Downs

I love Hines ward.
He never misses a catch from rotheliestburger.
Ward is a MVP.
He also always have a smile on his face.
He is also very strong and he is my favorite player.

My favorite! One of a kind player. He's an outstanding receiver, committed to his team, and does everything with a smile!

Great consistent player with pittsburgh

John Stallworth

Here's the bottom line why he's one of the best in Steelers history. 537 receptions for 8,723 yards and 63 tds. 3 times he played in the Pro Bowl, 1984 NFL Comeback Player of the Year as he caught 80 receptions for 1,395 yards and 11 touchdowns all career highs. he holds the Super Bowl record for career average per catch (24.4) 40.33 yards per catch in Super Bowl XIV, 12 postseason touchdown receptions, a string of 17 straight postseason games with at least one reception and scored a td in 8 straight postseason games (1978-1983) and a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers all-time team and a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002.

The Contenders

Mel Blount

Mel Blount is my #3 Top Pittsburgh Steeler of all-time. He was the best DB of his era & caused the NFL to change the contact rules of the game. Mel still played at a Pro Bowl level after the rules changed.

Rod Woodson

A Steeler forever Rod defined his position as safety and he was also good returning punts and kickoffs as well. In 1989, he blossomed as a star as he had a combined 80 combined tackles and 3 touchdowns on his way to his first Pro Bowl berth and also his first taste of postseason success with the Steelers. In the 90s no does it better than Rod and in 1992 he became a game breaker, making key plays to many of the Steeler wins for this year and eventually all throughout his stay as a Steeler, earning him many great honors including the NFL 75th Anniversary ALL-Time Team, the NFL 1990s ALL-Decade Team and eventually induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Mike Webster

Iron Mike made great blocks for Franco Harris.

Your nuts! Greene, Lambert, Blount, Bradshaw, Woodson, Dawson, Swann, Webster, Harris, Polmalu.
.. Ben=not top ten! Next 5 = Ham, Ward, Shell, Greenwood, Stallworth.

Antonio Brown Antonio Brown is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. He is often regarded as one of the best Wide Receivers in today's game in the NFL. Brown was selected 195th overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round. more.

He can run really fast and can do front flips catch really good

Best wr ever. Only people in front of him are nine ward, Lynn swan, and mike Wallace

He is really good and makes a lot of good plays

Amazing player! Also the only Steeler to play in the Pro Bowl 2014

Jack Ham Jack Raphael Ham Jr. is a former American football outside linebacker who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League from 1971 to 1982. He is considered one of the greatest outside linebackers in the history of the NFL.

He was considered the best linebacker. No offense to lambert

James Harrison James Henry Harrison Jr. is a former American football linebacker. He played college football for Kent State University and was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2002. A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Harrison won two Super Bowls with the Steelers: XL and XLIII.

My favorite steelers player of all time! when you see james Harrison you see what a Pittsburgh steeler is supposed to be

James Harrison has the most sacks for Pittsburgh Steelers.

Really old but plays like he was 28 years old again.

Very aggressive and one heck of a power hitter

William Gay William Gay is an American football cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

This guy is not only a great player, but fun to watch he has the best td dance ever.

You are my favorite player!

Bobby Layne
Juju Smith-Schuster

He should be higher

Emmanuel Sanders Emmanuel Niamiah Sanders is an American football wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League.

One of the most up and coming Steelers Rookies in the league today! Hard not to love #88!
