    I don't think you got the sarcastic overtone of the comment.... For a guy drafted in 2009, Shipley was passed around the league until he finally won a starter job in Arizona around seven years later. Okobi sat as the pre-eminent starter in waiting for years until his turn came and they finally decided he wasn't that good. He also went to the Cardinals. Not a surprise destination for Steelers cast offs. Both were still probably better than Mahan...

    Just his one play... that PICK/TD run in the Super Bowl alone wins him ELITE Steelers honors in my book.
    Hollywood,
    I agree with all of this. No, it doesn't matter practically. I just think it's a show of respect and appreciation for his contributions over the years. Perhaps a morale booster for the rest of the team; a way to say "no matter what, when you are a Steeler, it's for life".

    Best,

    Chad Scott for me a 1 pick who would get burn each week for a long TD.

    The thing was, as a rookie, he was pretty good. Then he had a knee injury... and was never the same.

    Look up his career stats and you might think differently. The guy had a 10 year career and his first season wasn't his best.

    I recall Scott and DeWayne Washington actually being a pretty good CB tandem for the Steelers defense.

    Statistically, he might have had better seasons. I really don’t know, because I didn’t look.

    What I recall is watching Scott as a rookie, and saying, “HOME RUN!!!” Then, he got injured... and he never was quite the same. Maybe he had more INTs in other seasons (IDK), but he never became the “shutdown” corner that he looked destined to be when I watched him play as a rookie.

    Make sense?

    I think Chad Scott and Deon "Seven" Figures both get a bad wrap with Steelers fans. Scott wrecked his knee (making an amazing pick in practice) after his rookie year, and Figures was shot in his knee after his rookie year.

    Having blown up my own knee (acl gone, mcl & meniscus tear, cracked tibia), yeah I have pretty much 100% use of it but I know I am not the same. Nothing is the same. I can run, juke and all that fun stuff, but it isn't the same and it never will be.

    They both will always get a pass in my book. They didn't suck, they both had significant knee injuries, and you need a knee to play at a high level.

    The truth about them both is that we really don't know what could have been without knee injuries.

    Yes, makes sense. I guess I just remember Chad Scotts career differently.

    I always thought he was a solid defender. The guy that was going to be good as a CB but not a pro bowl player. He ended up playing 10 seasons, 108 games, 21 INT....and only 3 of those INT happened in his first 3 seasons. So while a lot of Steeler fans painted him with the disappointment and bust label due to his draft position, much like Ziggy Hood or Lawrence Timmons, he actually was a productive NFL player and his final 5 seasons in B&G were better than his first 3.

    To top it off, they suffered their injuries towards the tail end of the era where ripping up a knee still mattered. Now guys tear one up, come back in less than a year, and come back better than before.

    Re: Who is the Most Hated Steeler of All-Time?

    Without thinking too much, Bell is in my top of my list with Bryant

    If it would be up to me, I would have traded Bell during the off season, since I'm tired of the drama.I was not there during all the entire offseason, since the drama of the steelers was way too much for me and Bell was one of the reason.I know he was not the only reason

    The steelers can be successful without this me player if the steelers find a competent RB like an old DeAngelo Williams in 2015.I'm hoping that Conner or another can be slightly above average

    During that same time, in his last two seasons Troy's production collapsed and he was often hurt while carrying a big cap number that was not justified by his level of play but you never heard comments from teammates that Troy was dogging it
    The best thing about Woodley was reading the WoodenDong report on stillers.com every week lol

    I never really hated Woodley or anything, but the hate he got from StillMill was pure comedy. I remember always reading the WoodenDong report and laughing my ass off.

    I still refer to unblocked sacks as Dong Sacks

    People who think that Woodley had just dong sacks when he was at his best knows nothing about the football!

    Yes, it helped to have James Harrison, but it takes at least 2 great pass rusher to be a great defense and Woodley was very important for this defense in our big years.

    Woodley had his best moments in his career for his production when Harrison was injured for some games but unfortunately his career ended when he was injured in our rare victory against the pats.
