The Banner needs updated to reflect the sixth Lombardi trophy.  I'll say it again, 'cause it just sounds good.  The Banner needs updated to reflect the sixth Lombardi trophy.  Who's the talent that put that together?

Blitzburrgh made the flash banner. I was planning on trying to get in touch with him.

Yeah, we need something better for sure.  I'll take a stab at it this week and see how it turns out.

OK, who all goes on it?  Let's minimize my thinking ...

Harrison, Tone, Ben, Ward ...

Should I put 6 Lombardies or just the 1?

Was thinking a collage over a bunch of fans in Heinz with the trophies in there somewhere.  Check the new one over at http://www.steeleraddicts.com/ ... pretty cool.

Ideas, people, ideas!

I know they are old school and the backbone of the entire organization...But I would like to see Troy and Farrior replace Terry and Jack.  Just have one lombardi in the middle with a 6X over the NFl logo.  dont think we need 6 of them taking up space.  its already a given we have THE greatest nfl franchise of all time.

Its a new era

I like the new era idea.  Just start the count for the Tomlin era at 1.  Thanks!

OK, that's the first shot a making a banner.  But now something needs to be done with the "Maximum Grilled Steelers" image in the title bar as it's redundant right below the same in the banner.

Maybe put the "articles, fans, forums, news" text there?  So, that would be on the left and "community" would be on the right.

Comments are welcome. 

Over on Steeler Addicts they rotate the banner every few page loads.  That's a cool idea I'll probably implement here.  So, eventually there will be several banners and you'll get a variety as you post.  A good way to work in different players, past rosters, the history, etc.  I mean, who wants to forget the Neil O'Donnell years?

I like the multiple banners idea.  How 'bout coming up with a general, "default" look for it (e.g. trophy or trophies in the forefront; nightime skyline shot of the city in the background; some kind of customized SB XLIII logo; whatever it ends up being) and include multiple players from the current SB squad.  Tomlin, Ben, Holmesy, Harrison, Ward, Berger, etc. 

Then, have the same look, but instead of it having several players from the current team, create individual banners for individual players, past and present.  Essentially, people could pick a Miller, Polamalu, Woodley banner that would have the same look as the default one, but it would only have pictures of that single player.  If ya really want to go crazy have banners for old school guys too like Woodson, Lloyd, Lake or really old school like Lambert, Shell, Harris, Bradshaw, Swann, etc.

Might it be as simple as using Blitzburgh's banner from the old site as a template?
