If the Steelers had a book about the all-time Steelers team. Who should or would be on the cover?
My two answer would be:
1. Art Rooney
2. Jack Lambert

There are some many greats to choose from, and a great owner and coaches.
Off subject a touch, the browns I would think, would choose Jim Brown. There are few other choices. One good coach got ousted here. And one owner packed up and booked. And there have been very few HOF over the past 30 years or so.
To stay in the AFCN, Baltimore would have to be Ray Lewis, although he probably should be in jail. But a no doubter as far as thier team goes.
Then Cincy, tough one here. Hmmm, maybe Boomer, nah! Not sure?

The face of the Steelers will always be the Rooney family; whether it's the Chief, Dan Rooney, or Art deuce they are the ones IMO. If you were going to choose a player to be the face of the Steelers then it could be one of a multitude of choices:

Lambert
Mean Joe
Bradshaw
Harris
Ham
Blount
Swann
Stallworth
Bettis
Webster
Greenwood...

the list goes on and on, each of them and like so many of their black n gold teammates have a place in Steelers history and could be considered as a candidate for such a distinction as the face of the Steelers.

Art Rooney without question. Only he and his families continued unwavering love for the city of Pittsburgh has kept the franchise there. The city of Pittsburgh's population has been declining since the 70's and it is now one of, if not the smallest city with an NFL franchise. Many other owners who are more loyal to the dollar than to their fans would have moved the franchise years ago.

casual fans of the nfl wouldnt know who art rooney is, thats stupid. if they are trying to sell a book they want someone that all generations would know. cowher would be one of those guys, bettis was known throughout the planet as the bus...he would be that guy. all you guys are doing is naming great hall of fame players from the 70s and rooney, if they put rooney on the cover most people would be like...who the **** is that old dude. if they put cowher on theyd be like....damn thats the dude with the chin that spit, or hey thats the bus he used to run people over up and down the field

I could see Rooney in the foreground with some of the players from the 70's in the background... maybe even Chuck Knoll looking over Rooney's shoulder :dunno:

There is something I like about Bettis, but I cannot see him as a total Steeler. He doesn`t do much for me I guess.

Rooney is my no.1 pick. But to think Pittsburgh, tough, defense, dynasty, a player would have to be Lambert!

Rooney no doubt.

If it was a modern day player it would have to be Ben, past I would say either Greene,Lambert, or Bradshaw.

that's a very interesting point and definitely has merit ! There is no franchise in the league and probably none in professional sports where the city and fans are more a part of each other than Pittsburgh. They both epitomize what the relationship between a city, it's team, and it's fans all over the word is all about. When you look at the fans and the team you can just see how they are connected.

Philly fans are pretty devoted too. As are Browns and Raiders fans.

He does that in pretty much every thread. I would pay (SA Gold maybe? I would not be against it) to see him type a solid paragraph (6-8 sentences.) of useful information
