Best Offensive Pittsburgh Steelers Players of All Time

Best Offensive Pittsburgh Steelers Players of All Time

The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the oldest and most successful franchises in all of the National Football League with 6 Super Bowls out of eight total appearances.  The Steelers most recently won the Super Bowl in 2009 and have been highly competitive since.  With such a successful team through the years it can be extremely difficult trying to come up with a list of the best Pittsburgh Steelers players of all time.  Therefore, this article will only cover offensive players while another article will cover defensive players.  On to the players!

Lynn Swann
Lynn Swann is most remembered in the eyes of most Pittsburgh Steelers fans for his great performances in many playoff games.  Swann competed in a total of four Super Bowls and played fantastic in all of them, even earning an MVP award for his performance in Super Bowl X with 161 yards of offense and a touchdown.

Terry Bradshaw
Bradshaw is considered as one of the greatest quarterbacks to have ever played the game of football, so it was a no-brainer including him in this list.  He won four Super Bowls over the course of his career with the Steelers along with two MVP awards.

Ben Roethlisberger
While it may seem as a stretch for some to include Roethlisberger on the list, his accomplishments thus far have been impressive to say the least.  He is one of the most clutch players in the modern game today and is nearly impossible to bring down.  Couple his athletic ability with three Super Bowl appearances before the age of 30, and one will find Ben deserving of being on the list before his career is said and done.

John Stallworth
Stallworth was one of Bradshaw’s go-to wide receivers during the Steelers’ dominance of the 1970s.  With nearly 9,000 yards and 63 touchdown catches during his career with the team, Stallworth came up big for the franchise on numerous playoff occasions, notably Super Bowl XIII.

Jerome Bettis
One simply cannot compile a list of best offensive Pittsburgh Steelers players without including “The Bus.”  His 13,662 rushing yards is ranked fifth on the all-time rushing list, and his dominant performance during the 2005 NFL season helped to catapult the Steelers to their fifth Super Bowl.
