There's no greater achievement in the career of a football player than putting on the gold jacket in Canton. Millions have played the game as a child. A lucky some play at the college level. An extremely rare minority make an NFL roster. At the end of it all, an extremely rare, elite group of players see their bronze heads in the NFL Hall of Fame.
One of the NFL's most recognized and storied franchise, the Pittsburgh Steelers, are well represented in this legendary place. Many Steelers have been selected, but just as many have been snubbed. Due to the high number of Steelers in Canton, it has become extremely difficult for many of its alumni to get the call.
The 2011 roster of Pittsburgh Steelers have put together an impressive resume. In the past decade, they've won numerous division titles, they've assembled some of the game's best defenses and they've appeared in multiple AFC title games. Most importantly, they've been to three Super Bowls and have brought home the title twice. Many great players and coaches have made this all possible.
These are the players who have the potential to make this elite group. Some of these players already have a place reserved, some are well on their way, others are young with the potential to be there.
