I could not agree more. Bill Nunn was as much a part of our first 4 SBs as anyone. If fact I'll go as far as saying he was a pioneer. He scouted the small black colleges and found gold.

There is a story that he was friends with the coach at Alabama A&M and when he got the film for Stallworth he sat on it so no one else could see how good he was. The story is that's why they drafted Swann ahead of him.

would be great if the Steelers could pull off another draft like the 74 draft. there were only 5 HOFers in the 74 draft and the Steelers got 4 of them.
