The Pittsburgh Steelers "Steel Curtain" Defensive Four
« on: September 29, 2013, 08:15:23 PM »

The Steel Curtain's famed front four were:

    #75 "Mean Joe"(Charles Edward) Greene - defensive tackle, 1969-1981 (1969 Defensive Rookie of the Year; 1972 & 1974 Defensive Player of the Year; NFL 1970s All-Decade Team; Hall of Fame)
    #68 L. C. Greenwood - defensive end, 1969-1981 (NFL 1970s All-Decade Team)
    #63 Ernie Holmes - defensive tackle, 1972–1977
    #78 Dwight White - defensive end, 1971–1980

Today, only Joe Green survives.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Joe's the only one left. L.C., who died the other day, was by all accounts a good and decent man (and a heck of a golfer). Steeler nation is sad, and not just because the current team is totally stinko.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.
