Great Game Day Q&A… Let’s get to it: ADAM STATTI FROM CAPE CORAL, FL: If you could pick one former Steelers player in his prime (besides Joe Greene) to insert onto this current Steelers team, who would it be? ANSWER: The biggest soft spot with the current Steelers is their passing game, and so there are some obvious choices who would be solid choices to remedy that.

There are a couple of Hall of Fame wide receivers named Lynn Swann and John Stallworth who certainly would juice any NFL passing attack, but since the Steelers lost a quarterback who won two Super Bowls when Ben Roethlisberger needed surgery on his right elbow, the opportunity to replace him with a quarterback who won four Super Bowls and was voted that game’s MVP twice sure seems like a no-brainer. So, I’ll choose Terry Bradshaw. And since you’re allowing me to have the player in his prime, I’ll take the 1978 version who was voted NFL MVP.
John Stallworth takes us back to the campus of Alabama A&M to tell the untold story of the day he ran his 40 for Bill Nunn, and how it kickstarted his career in Pittsburgh. Having watched this game live, this is probably my favorite play of all time. The Steelers were heavy favorites in this game and did not play particularly well in what was essentially a home Super Bowl game for the Rams. I had a sinking feeling the whole game that we would lose our first Super Bowl ever. Which was unthinkable. Swann was out–concussion.
