    Jersey's that need to be retired

    IMO there are a few jersey numbers that need to be retired and not worn anymore. One of them high on my list is number 26. I personally do not think there is anyone that can come close to being as good as Rod Woodson was, and even though I like him, DeShea Townsend is not worthy of wearing Woodson's number

    If Woodson would have finished his career in Pittsburgh or won a Superbowl here I think his jersey would be retired.

    Not really a big believer in retiring numbers

    Very true, we don't officially retire numbers. There are several numbers that will never be handed out again though such as 12, 32, 58, 52, etc. If we didn't need 88 and 82 every year they wouldnt be handed out either.

    I don't think 36 should be handed out again.Nobody can wear 36 like Bus did.

    Woodson would have finished his career in Pittsburgh, but the Steelers thought that his best days were behind him, after his injury. He went on to show that he was still as good a player after rehab as before. Sure he lost a step or two, but he was still one of the best in the league. I hate that he had to go to the Ratbirds to get his superbowl victory.

    I like the way the Raiders do it, they don't retire numbers They want the memory of those players left on the field in the form of their numbers, not a banner hanging in the team shop or elsewhere. I would love to see 12, 32, 52, 58, 59......etc, on the football field. IMO

    There is only 1 number that needs to be retired in Pittsburgh ... and it's not because we want to pay tribute to the man or remember him for his accomplishments. It would be because we want to forget him .... thus nobody would be allowed to wear the number or speak his name ever again essentially wiping him out of Steeler history forever.
