Ahead of some powerhouses like the Yankees and Celtics, too! The other Pittsburgh teams also had respectable showing as well, but not quite top ten status like our Stillers (Penguins #26, Pirates #29).
Frankly, I had no idea about Troy's sewn-on cross. That would likely be a fine for uniform violation (like Ben was told he'd receive if he continued to write PFJ on his shoes back when he was a rookie), but no one can see it behind that mane of his.Some fans still haven't gotten over the Steelers' move away from block uni numbers 15 years ago, but the team's basic look is still as strong as ever. They're also the only NFL team with a logo on just one side of the helmet, a quirk that scores a few points in the intangibles column. Ditto for the cross sewn onto Troy Polamalu's jersey (which probably would prompt a fine if not for the fact that it's usually covered by his hair).
