Arguably one of the greatest Steelers of all time, Bullet Bill led the Steelers in rushing in his rookie season (1942) and returned from his stint in WWII to lead the entire NFL in rushing, interceptions, and punt returns. Prior to his arrival, the Steelers had been a mess, finishing the season with 1 win. They went 7-4 with him in the lineup. He was the puzzle piece that made the team finally click. That is, of course, until their new coaches regimented style of play stifled his creativity and sent him packing to Detroit.
Dudley would go on to have some of his best games of his career playing against the Steelers. Bullet Bill, you will be missed.
