Mean Joe was the first defensive player chosen for the all-time team. Joined by Lambert and Ham. There will be many more from the dynasty on that team before it's over. Enjoyed this little nugget when reading about our first 3 selections... "Andy Russell, who occupied the middle linebacker spot while Jack Lambert held down the other outside spot, wrote about Ham and a game against the San Diego Chargers in 1975. The Steelers had a comfortable lead, when both players were substituted for to give them a rest. As they stood on the sidelines talking about Ham's involvement in the coal business, the Chargers intercepted and returned the ball to the three-yard. Ham was sent back into the game to try and secure a shutout. "The first play the Chargers ran was a sweep to the right," wrote Russell. "Bad idea. Ham took their giant tight end, threw him aside, speared the runner behind the line of scrimmage causing him to fumble, which of course Jack recovered. As he slowly walked off the field, he casually flipped the ball to the ref. Returning to our position on the sideline, Jack turned to me smiling and said, 'Where was I?'" That is what I base my current frustrations on, acting like you've been there before. No wild celebrations or selfies in front of the crowd. Just 100% bad-ass domination and the subsequent reaction that demonstrated the mindset of simply doing one's job.
