If you could spend a day with any Steeler player or coach, past or present, who would it be an why? Doesn't necessarily have to be your favorite player but it could be.


I don't think I could narrow down just one so I'd probably say Greg Lloyd and Jerome Bettis. Lloyd has always been one of my favorite Steeler players, I'd love to listen to his stories and pick his brain about his playing days under Bill Cowher.


Jerome Bettis just because of how much he meant to the team in their hayday of running the ball. A guy who was the focal point of the entire offense for years and meant so much to the city and the fans.

From back "in the day": Mel Blount, Joe Greene, and Jack Lambert. Three of the toughest SOB's ever.

From today: Troy. Possibly the classiest guy ever to wear the black and gold.

If I could only pick one, it would be Troy.

I'd probably say from the old school side, spending a day with Jack Lambert would be amazing. The stories that man could tell would be so much fun to hear. Plus he's a big outdoors guy too which is cool.

More recent players, I'd enjoy hanging out Ben Roethlisberger. Seeing the guy that he was and the guy he has become and talking with him about his career and interests outside of football would be cool. Plus I'd love to catch a pass from him!

Greg Warren for me, I'd love for him to long snap my wifes cat into traffic!

Seriously, growing up in Latrobe I did get to hang with alot of players at the local pizza joint, Keith Willis was one of them, it was badass at the time for me being 10 or so, I'd bet it would be even better now!

I think it would be Troy. Very intelligent and spiritual.

Troy gets my vote also and already met a lot of the 70's Steelers. Harrison is cool if you like to go out to eat and the movies a lot. 90% of his Facebook subjects deal with one or the other lol.

I would choose Tunch Ilkin ... because Tunch represented the transition from Dynasty Steelers into the Cowher Era ... Tunch has met and knows all generations of the modern era Steelers players ... Tunch is a funny guy ... Tunch knew and worked along side Myron Cope, one of my favorite Steelers figures of all time ...

A day with Tunch would be a serious joy ...

Honestly there is to many to mention and we are blessed with all the talented and character guys we had as Steeler players through the years. Also thank God for our share of mean mofo linebackers over the years like Lambert, Lyod and Harrison. Heck would like to hang out with tons of them and like I said I'm lucky to have gotten to meet a lot from the 70's years.

I would very much like to spend a Sunday with Troy during the offseason so we can go to Church for fellowship and worship.

I've spent some time with Wolf, he's an awesome guy! Talked to Tunch as well, you won't find a more down to earth man than these these two.

Jack Lambert and Terry Bradshaw I met Jack at Latrobe when I was a kid. Nice guy and set under a tree in the shade after practice and signed autographs for hours. Terry is the only one of the Super 70's Steelers I didn't meet and he ran in to the complex and didn't sign autographs. To be expected and most qbs don't sign. I do have Terry's auto but had to buy it.

Note that I am not criticizing but am just curious as to your thoughts on why you would choose Sylvester. From my perspective, it kind of seems close to picking Greg Warren.

Sylvester may not ever turn into a good LB but got to give him props. Dude is SP stud. He is a intense player and hopefully he can make that work for him at LB.

I agree and I was not even trying to put down Sylvester or criticize the poster. There are no "right" nor "wrong" answers to this question but his is an interesting one. I was just curious as to why he would choose a Steeler that most outside of this forum had never heard of when you have enough Hall of Fame Steelers to open their own museum.

I agree it was a bit of a odd choice and was just stating reasons why the poster may like Sylvester.
