In eight days, we are going to introduce Peyton and his receivers to the LOB! The Legion of Boom! And they are not going to be nice! In fact they are going to be flat out nasty! The LOB is led by Richard Thomas, Byron Maxwell, Earl Thomas and Cam Chancellor! This is an old school secondary, I'm talking Mel Blount, Donnie Shell, Jack Tatum and Ronnie Lot old school, elbow to the ribs off the line of scrimmage, come across the middle if you want to, stop crying to the officials you sissy's, man on man football the way it was meant to be played! They are tired of hearing about Peyton and his golden arm! They are mad about how Sherman as been treated, and they are looking to make a statement! And that is just what they are going to do!

Diva receivers never had to face a Mel Blount or a Jack Tatum. That would shut them up right quick.
Cris Collingworth still suffering the ill effects of all those Mel Blount shots to the head.

Watching and it got me thinkin. Best Secondary ever?: Ronnie Lott, Jack Tatum, + Mel Blount. Thoughts?
Top 5 Steelers of all time, according to Bleacher Report: 1. Joe Greene, 2. Jack Lambert, 3. Mel Blount, 4. Franco Harris, 5. Jack Ham. Pretty amazing list. Happy that I have met all of them; they're all great guys, as well as incredible athletes.
My defense is a 3/4 with Lawrence Taylor and Ted Hendrix at OLB. Ray Lewis and Jack Lambert at ILB. My D-Lineman are Bruce Smith, Cortez Kennedy @ NT and Joe Green. My all time secondary is Ronnie Lott @ SS, Ed Reed @ FS, Deion and Mel Blount are my CB's. Bill Walshi is my coach and Buddy Ryan is my DC. I dare somebody to beat that squad!
I think corners & safetys could play now off the top. Mel Blount, Mike Haynes, Lester Hayes, Jack Tatum
Mel Blount was so good they had to change the rules
Oh boy...quite a few of you need to fill this out.
Ronde Barber to Hall? 12 corner only guys in Canton. Barney,Deion, DGreen, , Renfro, Mel Blount..check the list. R.B not in their league!
Top 5. Dad said Mel Blount was better. Never saw Night Train
Toughest NFL Lineman ever along with the toughest NFL Wide Receiver ever. Mean Joe Greene and Hines Ward.
We are thankful for the work that Joe Greene has done for the Steeler's over the years. Also thankful to have him as a supporter of MBYH! Good luck Joe!
WHAT?! Next thing ya know Mel Blount is gonna retire & get in tax trouble & Lynn Swann will retire & own a failing Arena team

To James Harrison: thank you for giving the Steelers and the City of Pittsburgh 2 World Titles and being the guy opposing QB's feared for the better part of a decade. You picking off Kurt Warner and running it back 99 yds.for a pick-6 and then collapsing for air in the end zone in SB XLIII will forever be a part of Steelers lore. You have joined the likes of Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Joe Greene,Mel Blount in the lineage of great Steelers defensive players. This Pittsburgh boy thanks you for your service and for cementing the Steelers as the greatest franchise in pro sports.

From the Class of 2011 & legend MEL BLOUNT attends the 2013 Enshrinement Ceremony.
Mel Blount made the NFL change the rules he was such as physical corner.
.Um yeah... then you guys changed the rules to make Mel Blount less effective.
53 days to 53 is also the pick used by the to select Mel Blount in the 1970 draft:
Controversial Question Time, do you honestly believe that sometimes refs will purposely make bad calls to help out a team? I hear people talk and debate about this a lot, so whats your opinion on it. - Kyle
You know what makes me laugh? All these New England/Tom Brady haters! They go on about how much "special treatment" Brady gets, and people get mad because after Brady got hurt for the season in '08 some rule changed and now people point to Brady for it. Hold on just a minute, what about the Defensive Holding call? We can all thank the 70's Steelers for that one, Mel Blount and all those guys held all the way down field until players complained to the league about it then the rule changed. How come nobody want's to talk about that and point fingers at them and the players that complained? Because its not New England everyone hates them! Then they wanna say New England was basically "Left Off the hook" with "Spy Gate." We got a 1st round pick taken away, Belichick was fined $500,000 and the organization was fined I believe too. We payed for "Spy Gate" if there was one! And they wanna compare it to "Bounty Gate" and say New Orleans received a more harsh punishment, they got a 2nd-round pick taken away, 2 co ...
Just meet one of the greatest if not the greatest DBs in NFL history. That is mr Mel Blount. What a nice and personable man he is. We sat there BSing for about 10 minutes. The shape he looks in no doubt he could suit up and still be the best corner we have now.
... and Rod Woodson at Saftey, and Mel Blount at CB...
Why is the Donna and the Disney Run on the same day? UGH! Leigh Toussant Gurr,Monica Blount and Lisa Jackson let me know if your wanting to change? And let me know about GA.:)

Mel Blount at 6. One of the best CB's of all time
It has been going that way for the past 30 years, since our boy Mel Blount ruled WR's.
If Mel Blount was white he would still be as successful as he is today.Just cuz you don't like him doesn't mean you need to post it on here
NFL rules trivia: On a fake punt, the punter takes the snap and throws a pass to one of the gunners. The gunner was jammed at the line, and the defender keeps blocking him while the pass is in the air. The contact prevents the gunner from catching the pass, which falls incomplete. What's the call?
if you are watching tv, turn to the NFL network now to see the greatest cornerback-punt returner-kick returner that ever stepped on the field. PRIME TIME, NEON Deion Sanders. the best to ever play the game.
How much money would it take to get y'all to place a 3* "Mel Blount Rule" Mel Blount in my inventory? 1 of 1 of course?
There is a young man named Devin Fleming a 6-4 190 DB at Alcorn St that needs to be watched.He is a Mel Blount clone.

FB FRIENDS AND FAM! DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKE AND THINK Celina Lina Judd is SLEEPING! Sheryl MMschel Jones, I couldn't have said this better myself so... With a few changes... I don't push Celina Lina Judd down your throat. I respect everyone.I don't send you 50/11 invites, inboxes & inconsiderate wall posts letting you know where she is or what she is doing. I trust that if you like her, you will listen, like, share or support. Truth is, I've done more on accident than a lot of you on purpose. You (local scene) can't undermind my artist or her movement because the local scene isn't even in our plans. I love Duval, I really do. It's the shady, shiesty, self-interest folks I don't like. team good we don't need a mascot. believe me, just watch. Sheryl, thank you!
I can't wait for the Mel Blount Rule part
Who were the 2 Steeler Assitant coaches that left the Steelers and ended up coaching for the LA Rams against the Steelers in their 4th Super Boel?
I'll say this. 47 is actually one of my favorite numbers. Kirilenko, Mel Blount, John Lynch... all wore it. And few wear it.
The Jets can lose with Revis or without him. Mel Blount and Dion Sanders in their prime wouldn't help Jets right now.
"Football's a physical game, well at least it used to be" -Mel Blount
They made 2 new rules for the Steel Curtain and Mel Blount...and they still won two more Super Bowls.

Its a totally different era... What u kno bout Mel Blount? The NFL had to change the game and come up w Mel Blount rule to stop him.
Super Bowl XXIV Part 2: The second half was no different. In the third qtr, Rice caught a 28 yd TD and John Taylor caught a 35 yard one from Montana and at the end of third it was 41-3 49ers. Denver scored in the 4th when John elway ran it in from 3 and Treadwell converted to make it 41-10. Then Rathman ran it in from 3 and Roger Graig from one, with Cofer converting both PAT's it was 55-10 final. 55 points is still a Super Bowl Record and the 45 pt margin of victory also a record. Montana set a then record with 5 TD passes to earn MVP honors. Tony Dorsett was on the Denver Broncos roster but did not play due to injury. 5 hall of famers particepated, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young and Ronnie Lott for San Fran and John Elway for Denver. SF tied Pittsburgh with 4 Sb victories and Denver tied Minnesota with 4 losses. The National Anthem was sung by Aaron Neville, The coin tossed by Super Bowl legends Terry Bradshaw, Mel Blount, Art Shell and Willie Wood. Halftime was performed by Pete Founti ...

On a borrowed horse, Mel Blount drove through the herd of cows with ease, separating a white one from the herd before picking out another. After he finished his cutting demonstration Wednesday at James Brown Arena, he delivered a message just as smooth as he remained atop the horse.
Miss the days of Mel Blount and Jack Tatum. DB's today have no chance with the rules.
Franco Harris, Mel Blount, Frenchie Fuqua, and many other Steeler autographs may make John Baldridge's bike the...

Looks like Russell Wilson is gonna snag rookie of the year.
My heart goes out to RGIII.you played your *** off bro.but let this be a lesson learned. Don't let pride or competitiveness take over when your body just can't do it. You're a superstar, but nothing can replace your health. Let's hope that knee isn't too shredded up. Godspeed to you kiddo!
When I typed Mel Blount into YouTube the first suggestion was "Mel Blount killed 2 people."
These bammas putting knees in Alfred's face while he's down??? Who is our dirty work guy???
that's the biggest cornerback since Mel Blount.
Ain't had a big physical CB like him since Mel Blount wit da steelers
OK he was GOAT for the Raven's pls no more of the NFL, Deacon, Mean Joe, LT, Mel Blount, Butkus, & more say pls stop
Oh yeah, I figured Ham and Lambert, I assumed Mean Joe woulda been the 3rd, had to look it up, it was Mel Blount
If Colts win the Greatest defensive player of all time will play his last game! like if you agree
NO he didn't change the game like Deacon Jones, LT, Mean Joe, Mel Blount, Reg White, Nite Train they had rules change
on merits that he didn't change the game like, LT, Reggie White, Mean Joe, Mel Blount, NiteTrain Lane, Deacon Jones, Butkus
Could you imagine Mel Blount or Jack Ham doing the "look at me" pre-game dance? Why does the media love this guy?
You are truly the Mel Blount/ Donnie Shell of this generation...Thank You for your efforts EVERY SUNDAY!!!
Thinking seriously to end off my holiday on a high note . :)

When Tony Dungy went to the Steelers in 1977, there was a group of guys who were different than other players, guys like Donnie Shell, Mel Blount, Jon Kolb, and Larry Brown. They were very focused players who loved football and Jesus. As Dungy watched them, he sensed something very unique that made them different. It was their walk with God! This helped Dungy with his priorities. Who do you have in your life that will help you with your priorities and your walk with God? Called to Coach
Here is our Best of the Buzz for Week 16 and a special thanks to Willie Parker, Lawrence Timmons, Mel Blount,...
we want Mel Blount, Fred dean, Dwight Clark, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, and *** Butkus legendary cards!
then why don't u release them? The only new legend that u released was pat Tillman. How bout a Mel Blount?
that's easy. Mel Blount in his prime would give us a hard hitting glue fingered shutdown cover corner
I'm tempted to say Mel Blount but the one thing this team lacks more than anything is leadership so it has to be Joe Green
Gotta take this trip out Mel Blount today to go see one of my clients. I hope this drive aint too bad.

THE RENNY RANT... We ALL the rivalry. First Regular Season game vs the Steelers in a loss. First Regular Season win vs the Steelers in the 1961 opener. The acrobatic Lynn Swann catches, Percy Howard's ONLY career catch over Mel Blount, "Hollywoood" Henderson calling out Bradshaw's spelling skills, the Jackie Smith drop in the endzone, the valiant Cowboys comebacks only to fall short, 12th round pick Larry Brown STI LL not having to buy himself a beer in Dallas because of his TWO game changing interceptions in Super Bowl XXX, the "Blue Collar" Steelers; the "flashy and star studded" Cowboys...WE ALL KNOW THE HISTORY! The all-time series record is tied at 15 games a piece playing in 30 games vs the Steelers since our inception in 1960. Well folks, sombody will take the series lead today by 6:30 pm. I think you all know who Im putting my money on. And all I have left to say is...HOW 'BOUT THEM COWBOYS! ENJOY THE GAME YALL!!!

Another reason I hate the NFL network: Terry Bradshaw on the top 10 list of best qb's of the 70's?!?! I don't see how you can have any position NOT have a Steeler at Best running back? Franco Harris. Best WR? Lynn Swan. Best O Lineman? Mike Webster. Best D Lineman? Joe Greene. Best linebacker? Jack Lambert. Best Db? Mel Blount. And best QB? Terry Bradshaw! I know people can argue any of those BUT I know that each of those guys have to be in the conversation! Not one of em should be outside of the top 2
