If we are talking about the best Steeler to never win a Super Bowl with the Steelers, I'd probably go with Rod Woodson (of course, he has a ring elsewhere, so not sure if that qualifies).

Dirt's the obvious name. Several other guys from the 90's deserve some consideration, such as Carnell Lake and Greg Lloyd. You've got some pre-70's old timer guys like Ernie Stautner, Bullet Bill Dudley, John Henry Johnson, and Elbie Nickel who merit some consideration as well.

I'll go with Stautner. Nasty.

Man of Steel. What is up with the vid? When I started watching it, I figured your vote was Greg Llyod. Then the video shows him getting trucked and falling down. I don't get it.

Wanted to say Louis Lipps but he cant compare to Woodson.
As far as the Lloyd (my favorite player of all time) video, the LB's were trying to take on that huge line instead of filling the gaps early in that game. Larry Allen or Nate Newton is a little different compared to Novacek or Moose.

I can't speak for pre-70's Steelers, but the answer must come from the 90's teams.
I like Dermontti Dawson too, but HE wasn't the heart and soul of those 90's Steelers teams. Neither was Woodson for that matter. It was 95. He was the man, the straw that stirred the drink.
