Everytime the Steelers have had a truly great defense they had pro bowl caliber players at every level. 1975 Ranked 2 DL Greene and LC LB Ham and Lambert CB Blount S Mike Wagner 1994 Ranked 2 DL Seals and Stead LB Greene, LLoyd, Kirkland CB Woodson S Lake 2004 Ranked 1 DL Smith LB Farrior, Porter CB Townsend S Troy 2008 Ranked 1 DL Smith and Hampton LB Woodley, Farrior, Harrison CB Ike S Troy, Clark 2010 Ranked 1 DL Keisel, Hampton LB Woodley, Farrior, Harrison, Timmons CB Ike S Troy Right Now and in the near Future DL Heyward and Tuitt LB Watt and Bush maybe Bud? CB Nelson and Haden S Minkah Not sure what will happen with Bud after this year, but he is playing lights out. Plus we are still waiting to see what can happen with T. Edmunds. If they can keep this core group and stay healthy, most of them are just hitting their prime. The Steelers could have the best defense for the next couple years. Will be exciting to watch.
