Dermontti Dawson and Rod Woodson To Serve As Honorary Co-Captains For Sunday’s AFC Championship Game


PITTSBURGH — Former Steelers greats Dermontti Dawson and Rod Woodson will serve as honorary co-captains for this Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between Pittsburgh and the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field.

Dawson, who was recently named a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was a center for the Steelers from 1988-2000 after being the team’s second-round draft pick (44th overall) in the 1988 NFL Draft out of Kentucky. He played in 170 consecutive games during a span in his career and was named All-Pro six straight years (1993-98). Dawson was selected to play in seven consecutive Pro Bowls and anchored the offensive line that led the Steelers to five AFC Central Division championships and one AFC Championship.

Woodson also was recently named a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame and played 10 seasons with the Steelers. Woodson, the team’s first-round draft pick (10th overall) in the 1987 NFL Draft out of Purdue, played a total of 17 NFL seasons (1987-96 with Pittsburgh, 1997 with San Francisco, 1998-2001 with Baltimore and 2002-03 with Oakland) and was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1993 as a Steeler. He was chosen to play in 11 Pro Bowls in his career and was a member of the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team and the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s. A six-time first-team All-Pro selection, Woodson is the NFL’s all-time leader in interception return yardage (1,483 yards).

Here's hoping they both mke it in the HOF this year!!! We all know they deserve it. :yesnod:

If you think about it, Rod Woodson is showing his allegiance to the Steelers with this move.

He's sais before he'll always think of himself as a Steeler. Some folks get freaked when he picks against us, but that doesn't mean he don't love the Steelers.

I love this, the Steelers never forget their past greats. I was disappointed that the TV didn't have more than a quick shot of the Bus last week.

That would be a pretty dick move to spend 10 years with the organization that drafted you, 4 years with another team, and choose the latter.

I don't understand the term 'pretty dick'.
That must be a term only Ratbird fans are familiar with! :nahnah:

Oh wait I get it, you're implying that I'm gay, and being gay is bad, so it's an insult!

Hooray for homophobic humor!

Reread your posts..... YOU implied you were gay. :lol: And just so there's no confusion, IMO being gay IS bad. You're free to make your own choices though.

Now, having said that, homophobia is a fear of gays.
You don't frighten me one bit..... although I do find it a little awkward that you want to show another man your dick in a public restroom. THAT'S a little scary. :eek1:

Not surprising for a ratbird fan though.

You made a joke about the phrase "pretty dick," I joked back that you're welcome to see mine, the implication being that I have a pretty dick. Anything about being gay is meaning you added on.

sorry Psycho.

Back on topic. I hope both guys get elected to the HOF and I'm glad to see both of them honored at this weekends game. I met both of these guys and they're both extremely personable. DD was the coolest Steeler I ever met! My wife will tell you different. She hyperventilated when we met Rod! :lol:
