Steelers to honor Chuck Noll
From Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports:
Chuck Noll, who won four Super Bowls with the Steelers from 1969-1991, died in June at the age of 82. Beginning Sunday and throughout the 2014 season, the Steelers will honor Noll with a “CHN” decal to be worn on players’ helmets.
“We wanted to do something,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said, according to the team’s website. “And after we talked about it internally that seemed to be the most appropriate thing we could do. The team will wear it the whole season.
Three players on the current roster weren’t born when Noll coached his last season in Pittsburgh, but the team’s oldest member, 35-year-old Brett Keisel, is well aware of Noll’s lasting impact on the organization.
“It’s going to be incredible because of what Chuck Noll means,” Keisel said. “You think of that name, Chuck Noll, you think of the Pittsburgh Steelers, you think of the four Super Bowls they won in the 1970s, the domination that was created by him. I’m always thinking about those guys he drafted and the mentality he instilled in them.
It was the reason they were so good, because of the way they came and played together. It was all because of Chuck Noll. When you think about the Pittsburgh Steelers you think about championships and you think about Chuck Noll.”
