    That list is subjective.

    Any list that doesn't have Mel Blount on it as first team for the 70's is a flawed list.

    Mel Blount is a first or second team all-time DB.

    They had to change the rules because of Mel Blount. The rule is known as "The Mel Blount Rule".

    Blount had 57 INT's for his career (1 shy of doubling Cliff Harris' INT total)

    You do remember that interception Blount had in Super Bowl XIII?

    In the two Super Bowls; Mel Blount, Glenn Edwards, Mike Wagner, and J.T. Thomas all had one interception each off of Staubach.

    Cliff Harris had ZERO. In fact the Cowboys only had 1 INT for both games combined. Cliff Harris was too busy getting thrown around like a little rag doll by Jack Lambert.

    Bradshaw threw 6 TD's, and 1 INT.

    Staubach threw 5 TD's, and 4 INT's (most of Staubach's TD's came during garbage time)

    Of course none of them were! And even though Harris was named First Team you still throw your reason to the wind and say that Harris wouldn't even start for the Steelers!
    Cliff Harris would have been lucky to make it past cut day, had he played for the Steelers in the 70's.

    Reading the draft boards.....Your Browns drafted a first round safety with no career picks. It was pointed out he did catch one tipped pass. Browns be browns....a first round pick?

    Bradshaw was not named the starting quarterback for the '70s All Decade Team.

    Staubach was! Staubach got 13 votes and Bradshaw only got 3.

    There is only one America's Team and it's not the Steelers!

    The Steelers didn't want to be America's Team. They turned it down after they beat the Cowboys in Super Bowl X

    Dave Wannstedt is a regular on the Big Ten Network during football season. I like his takes.
