Frank "the tank" Summers
I will pick some O-linemen and D-linemen because I have always liked the guys in the trenches over the QBs, WRs, etc.
1) Dirt Dawson. I know, I know, he is in the HOF, so I am not sure he is "under-rated" but he is ignored a lot when people speak of the all-time great Steelers. Everyone thinks of Mike Webster as our best center ever but Dawson was better. He still lives in Kentucky and is loved here. A great guy (not that it matters regarding this topic).
2) Tunch Ilkin. There was a period where he gave up only a couple of sacks in a three year time frame.
3) John Jackson
1) Casey-He gets called a fat slob but that is exactly what the position has entailed. He was great at it and our run D was great in large part because of him.
2) Aaron Smith. I can never say enough about the way he selflessly played his position while the OLBs took all of the glory.
"If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler." -Jack Lambert
"Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward
Kiper and McShay both seem incompetent. I like Mike Mayock though.
