After all of the time waiting and not hearing the knock on the door that welcomes and congratulates you into the Pro Football Hall of Fame former Steelers linebacker
finally got that knock on Saturday night as he was officially announces as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016.
Teresa Varley has his thoughts about that moment and his thoughts on what his time in Pittsburgh meant to get him to this point where he’s now a part of football’s immortality.
"“There is no way on God’s green earth that I would be here at this point in my life if it wasn’t for teammates like Rod Woodson, my hunting brother at linebacker Greg Lloyd, Levon Kirkland, Chad Brown, Jerry Olsavsky, Joel Steed, Darren Perry, and my brother Carnell Lake. I could go on and on. And Steelers Nation, the fans that I loved to play for. The entire Steelers organization and Mr. Dan Rooney, who was so good to me, are all so special. I wouldn’t be here without those who invested in me and helped me along the way.” – Kevin Greene"
He’s got some ideas
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell gave his Super Bowl press conference this week where he addressed a number of topics concerning the NFL. When it comes to the Pro Bowl, a game that has absolutely lost all of its relevance, Goodell feels as if more tweaks are in order.
After changing it to the week before the Super Bowl and the fact that it’s a violent sport where the All-Star game played at the end of the season means players will go out of their way to avoid any further injuries there’s not a whole lot of options left aside from making it not a game at all.
Maybe a skills competition would be something more entertaining for players and fans alike. Another idea Goodell floated around at his presser was more punishment. Shocking, I know. Goodell proposed that two personal foul penalties in a game should result in a player ejection.
To put that into context Denver’s Aqib Talib would have been ejected early in the second quarter in Super Bowl 50.
Steelers at the Super Bowl
