    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....?
    "Lunch pale" is the first thing that comes to mind; hard worker who doesn't need pushed, one who wants to work hard, period. Not a selfish a hole.

    Aaron Smith
    Brett Keisel
    Farrior
    Heath Miller
    Hines Ward
    Cam Heyward

    Nailed it. All 'Steelers'

    And to add... They go in to the draft always trying to draft that steeler type, but people can change over time.

    I'm sure when they drafted AB, they thought he was their type of player. Sometimes out of football situations, money, ego... some change.

    Can you tell me who in this draft are 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.

    Iv’ e seen lynch and Proche and I agree with largo’s assessment on them.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.
    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    That's why they took him late. And boy oh boy did it pay off. Sure, it ended badly, but how many games was he crucial in a W? He was a beast.

    AB is the outlier. His work ethic screams blue collar Steelers type. His attitude and personality screams STAY AWAY.
