    Arguably.

    I'd say it's a bit early to say. The next 3-5 years will be telling. If he continues to put up 8-8 clunker seasons, then, no.

    I was never sold on Clausen. He is a douche on top of not being any good.

    His deal is he needs to stay clean and healthy. He's got the talent but every damn year we have to deal with it and hear him coming out saying I wasn't right etc etc etc... Time to shine Benny Boy!

    I don't think Terry would argue and I'm sure he'd agree with me.

    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

    D-Linemen

    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.
    I think DD doesn't get much mention because no rings were won in his era. It's they same theory I used for why Lloyd and Lake don't get more love. I thought of adding Hampton to my OP as well. He made the pro bowl as a 3-4 DT; not very common. CH also could take over games when he wanted to; he usually would bide his time, and at the critical part of a game he would shoot into the backfield and make a tackle for a loss or blow the play up. CH has been a tremendous player.

    Barry Steel Wheels Foster was an absolute beast for a time. There was none better when he was in his hay day. That dude just could flat out run over you or by you at will. I miss that type of ground attack, the consistency that guys like Foster and then Bettis brought to the table was what made the offense tick.

    Lloyd is still my all time favorite Steeler, he and Porter just had that knack of intimidation and ferocious play that was the bread and butter of a Cowher defense.

    S/O to Jason Gildon too. Not as many people liked him but the dude learned from Greene and Lloyd and lets face it he had a lot of success before his career started to decline.
