    Faneca Makes SI's Roster Of Greatest Steelers

    Link to story...
    (KDKA) PITTSBURGH Steelers guard Alan Faneca has made Sports Illustrated’s roster of the greatest Steelers of all-time.

    He’s the only active player on the list.

    Sports Illustrated’s offense includes Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Jerome Bettis and Lynn Swann.

    “To be listed with the guys that have come through these locker rooms for this organization in that manner – it means a lot to me,” Faneca said.

    His teammates say the distinction is well-deserved.

    “He’s one of the greatest for sure in my book no question,” Brett Keisel said.

    The recognition comes as Faneca is preparing for what will probably be his last year as a Steeler.

    I'm actually starting to feel sorry for Faneca and the way he's been treated by the Steelers

    I think he is one of the greatest of all time....period. There are people here who talk **** b/c of what he did (which could have been handled by him better), but no matter what the dude gets it done on the field.

    Well deserved props for Big Red. We know what we have, but don't know how much we'll miss him until (if) he's gone. He has showed how much of a professional he is by working his butt off even when we all know what his true feelings are.


    Thanks to BR7 for the sig

    Now doubt Faneca deseves this distinction. But it works both ways. I can see both sides of the story. There should be a way that they could jmeet in the middle.

    I'm A "Champion"

    he was made the highest payed guard in the league by the rooneys in 1992. inflation is a bitch i guess. he does deserve the honor though. he is the 3rd best lineman ive seen for us in my 30 years of watching the steelers after iron mike and dirt dawson.

    I have to agree he could of handled the situation better. I would like to see him and the Rooneys meet in the middle if possible. I just really did not care for the way he handled the whole situation. Going to the media like that. He probably hurt himself more than he helped himself.

    In '92 he was probably a freshman in high school. I think it was 2002.
