    'steeler type' of guy

    Every year, after we draft a guy, I hear numerous posters state, he's a 'steeler type'.
    For those of you who say that, can you explain to me what that means.
    I'm not being a d!ck. I really want to know.
    Seems like predicting our draft picks would be easier if we had a list of 'steeler types'.
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and 25% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    without getting into the definition... heres my idea of "Steeler guys".... James Farrior, Heath Miller, Brett Keisel, Hines Ward, Greg Lloyd... the 70s Steel Curtain... and many others... Those are "Steeler types".

    I get that, but as soon as a guy gets drafted, some label them as 'steeler types'.
    What characteristics do these guys have that qualifies them?

    True. I don't know either.
    I'm hoping that the ones that use that phrase will chime in and help the rest of us out.

    I can try and start. Perhaps others can add to my mind set

    Team Player- Not an I player
    High Character- Highly respected- in image of Rooney (the Chief)
    Smart- Street Smarts on the field
    Blue- Collar- Meaning brings the lunch pale to work- Gets thru the day at training camp without complaining, gets his job done for the betterment of the team.

    Sort of like a superior employee for any business, really. Never late, no excuses, etc.

    Examples of a True Steeler vs one that is not:

    Farrier, Ward- True Steelers
    Antonio Brown, Mendenhall - Not

    Any adds....?
    6- Time Super Bowl Champions......
    IX X XIII XIV XL XLIII

    2012 MNF Executive Champion

    Fans want everyone we draft to be a Steeler type of guy... a hard worker who makes plays when you need them the most or plays above and beyond their natural talent. Also willing to do the dirty work.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?
