mediablitz: Raiders fan who HATED the Steelers growing up. Still haven't got over the Immaculate Reception (submitted this with a better headline) but as I am older and (somewhat) mellowed, I can appreciate his contribution.Great teams and an amazing legacy. Truly the glory years.
abmoraz: (seriously. Albequerque, Omaha, Bakersfield CA, and Columbus OH are all bigger than Pittsburgh, but Coach made the Steelers into winners and got the city on the map).
Krustofsky: Landry finally gets another shot at him.RIP coach.
FriarReb98: ...and will STILL fail. Landry had showmen, Noll had players.
nekom: FriarReb98: Noll had players.No question about that! I've watched a lot of the old footage from the 70s and there was just no shortage of talent on that team in any area. Lynn Swann in his prime would put Hines Ward to shame and Ward was one of the best receivers ever to play the game, so that's really saying something.
DanZero: In before the hate, and just underneath a pair of real PIT fans!
geom_00: I wish I got to see you coach, Coach.Thank you for the rise of the Steelers.May "The Chief" greet you with a stogie!
abmoraz: I remember my dad introducing me to Coach Noll on the sidelines of the dome at Duquesne in the early 80s. One of my earliest memories. I'd met him a few more times as I grew older, but not since I hit high school in 91. Coach Noll was a kind man the few times that I met him and made the city a nationally recognizable name through his work with the Steelers. (seriously. Albequerque, Omaha, Bakersfield CA, and Columbus OH are all bigger than Pittsburgh, but Coach made the Steelers into winners and got the city on the map).RIP
Coniuratos: As a Browns fan,Rest in peace.
mr_a: The man either knew how to find exceptional talent, or get exceptional play out of the players he had. Either way, a great coach,Even better, not a lot of drama. Just football. RIP, coach.
