My Top Three Steeler Wide Recievers of All Time
Recently I wrote an article about my top three Steeler line backers of all time. I am going to do a few more of these slideshows for other positions to create a series.
There have been alot of great and talented wide recievers in the history of the Steelers. I have narrowed it down to three. One is of the present, but two are from a while back.
I hope you enjoy, and, as always,feel free to disagree.
# 3 Hines Ward
Hines Ward is known for many things. He is known for always smiling. He is known to almost always catch the football. But to me, most importantly, he is known for laying out Ed Reed. (Haha)
Hines is very deserving of his place on my list, having done both his time on the bench, and on the field. I hope to see Hines for many more years to come.
# 2 Lynn Swann
This was a very tough desicion to put Lynn as number two, so I would like to think of it as 1 1/2.
During Lynn's rookie season he led the league in punt returns, with 577, a franchise record, and fourth overrall for the NFL at that time. He was also the first wide reciever to win the Super Bowl's MVP award, having won it in Super Bowl X. Three years later, in Super Bowl XIII, he made seven catches for 124 yards, and scored the game winning touchdown for the Steelers 21-17 victory.
# 1 John Stallworth
John Stallworth is best remembered for his speed, his great leaping ability, and his actions in Super Bowls. In Super Bowl XII he caught a record 75 yard pass from Terry Bradshaw, that later became a very crucial touchdown in the Steelers 35-31 victory over the Dallas Cryboys. Stallworth also scored touchdowns in eight straight games in the playoffs, one of his many NFL records.
