The Steelers' illustrious past has many players, coaches and owners who helped shape the franchise's standing atop the league's history with the most Super Bowls of any NFL franchise.
During this year's Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Annual Enshrinement Weekend, the Friday luncheon which was only open to living members of the Hall of Fame, and it was apparent that the Steelers made a large part of the event's attendees.
After the luncheon a group of eight men got together for a picture, current owner Dan Rooney, Lynn Swann, Jack Ham, Franco Harris, Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, Mel Blount, and Dermontti Dawson. Also at the luncheon was John Stallworth, but he was not available for the picture at the time.
As time moves forward other Steelers greats will pass the five-year retired status that can add to the listed of members under the franchise. With Jerome Bettis being a finalist this past ballot, Hines Ward approaching eligibility, and other greats such as LC Greenwood who have yet to be inducted, the Steelers may soon be able to add to their large count of members honored in Canton, Ohio.
