Breaking Down The NFL Network's Top 10 Pittsburgh Steelers of All-Time

The NFL Network revealed their "Top Ten Pittsburgh Steelers of All-time" last Friday on Christmas Eve. It was a great treat for Steelers' fans to sit back and watch the NFL discuss what players deserved to make the list, and which players got snubbed.

Like all lists, this one was subjective and very much criticized by most people. Who voted for it? Who's thoughts and opinions deserved to be counted? Was it just the ten best players of all-time, or was their other forms of criteria for the list?

As expected the list was very much debatable especially in my opinion. The NFL Network’s Top 10 Steelers: 1. Joe Greene. 2. Terry Bradshaw. 3. Franco Harris. 4. Rod Woodson. 5. Jack Lambert. 6. Mel Blount. 7. Troy Polamalu. 8. Hines Ward. 9. Lynn Swann. 10. Jerome Bettis.

Not a terrible list, but it's far from perfect. As a show, it was great to have the NFL Network dedicate an hour to rank the ten best Steelers and show the world just how great the franchise truly is. Coming up with just ten players is a daunting task seeing as there are more than ten Steelers in the Pro-Football Hall of Fame.

There were a lot of thongs that I liked about the show, but at the same time I thought it was very flawed. I thought they left not only key players, but key members of the panel off. However, the list did it's job and created great debate. Which is what it's supposed to do.
