Although differing in style -- Swann was smooth and acrobatic; Stallworth big, fast and physical -- both were playmakers who made their marks in the postseason. In 16 career playoff games Swann scored nine touchdowns and averaged 18.9 yards on 48 receptions; playing in one more postseason game, Stallworth had 12 TDs and an 18.5-yard average on 57 catches. The two began their careers with Pittsburgh in 1974, won four Super Bowls and landed in the Hall of Fame.
