Godspeed Joe Greene best ever ~steeler.

Joe Greene after staying a mere 44 years has retired from the steelers. My Dad's favorite!

"I was very fortunate to have worked for the Steelers, the Rooneys and Chuck. I know without a doubt the reason I got a job with Pittsburgh for coaching was because of Chuck. He trusted me as a guy who hadn't coached before and he thought I had the wherewithal to do it. I think he was right, I know he was right," Greene said, adding, "The Steelers have influenced everything I've done as an adult."


Said Steelers president Art Rooney in the team's announcement on Greene, "There are very few people in the history of the NFL who have had a greater impact on one franchise than Joe Greene has had on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
