Time to discuss the best Steelers of position.

Remember those chain emails which used to go around to you and all your friends, asking you to copy and paste the questions and put your answers in before forwarding them to others?

Well, recently on social media there has been a similar sensation starting up again. People are asking their top albums, sports teams, etc. I thought it would be a good idea to bring this idea to BTSC for the all-time Pittsburgh Steelers, by position.


Below are my picks:

RB: Barry Foster
WR: Antonio Brown
TE: Heath Miller
QB: Ben Roethlisberger
OL: David DeCastro
DL: Aaron Smith
CB: Rod Woodson
S: Troy Polamalu
ILB: Levon Kirkland
OLB: Joey Porter
ST: Antwaan Randle El

There’s no real science behind this. We’re not looking for who you think was the best at the position, just personal favorites. For instance, Terry Bradshaw won 4 Super Bowl rings, but Ben Roethlisberger is my pick for the best ever. Why? He was the dominant quarterback of my generation. When you look at my answers, they are riddled with players from my childhood. Was Levon Kirkland the best ILB in Steelers’ history? No way, but watching him absolutely punish ball carriers as a young boy is something I will never forget.

So who are your favorites by position? I’m sure we’re going to see some generational differences in the comments. Simply copy and paste the above positions into the comments and let the debate begin!
