Top Ten Pittsburgh Steelers Players

The Top Ten

1 Mean Joe Greene Mean Joe Greene

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!

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

He's cool! He's my favorite definitely

Indisputably the greatest defensive tackle of all time on any team.

2 Troy Polamalu 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.

I think troy polamalu is the number one player and thats what other people should think too!

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

There ain't no other safety that can play like polamalu he is the main reason why the steelers had a great aggressive defense in 2009 do to his interceptions and great forced fumbles, and one of the main factors the steelers won Superbowl 43 kinda ironic but very well deserved

Best thing that happen to the steelers

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

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.

Makes playes when they are needed, and a star and coach on the field

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

4 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!

just the best team player ever would die for the team

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.

Jack is the greatest period.

5 Terry Bradshaw Terry Bradshaw

he lead us to 4 super bowl but ben is kinda canging on

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).

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

Led the Steelers to 4 Super Bowls in 6 years - SteelCity99

6 Franco Harris 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.

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?

Run Paisano Run!

7 Jerome Bettis

This guy trucked Brian Urlacher

A mack truck who was also nimble of his feet

Franco Harris has more rushing yards then Jerome Bettis

One of only 5 players in NFL history to rush for over 14,000 yards and run for 100+ TDs (including post-season play). The other 4 guys are Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders and LaDainian Tomlinson.

8 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

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 - htoutlaws2012

9 Lynn Swann

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

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

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

10 Rod Woodson

The Contenders

11 Antonio Brown Antonio Brown Antonio Brown is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

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

He is really good and makes a lot of good plays

You are the best player on the team

Ben Roelisberger should be first and Antonia should be second

12 Jack Ham 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

13 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.

14 Le'Veon Bell Le'Veon Bell Le'Veon Andrew Bell is an American football running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

The best running back the steelers have had since willie parker

This man was the team MVP for us and he deserved it.

Once he has the ball there's no stopping him

15 John Stallworth
16 James Harrison

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
