    I've been a Steelers fan since the 50's - That's 1950's - and then they were the lovable losers. Noll changed all that. He won more Super Bowls than any other coach.

    To quote the great John Facenda on an episode of NFL films:
     
    "In 1975 there were 27 teams in the National Football League. And then there were the Pittsburgh Steelers."
     
    In Pace Requiescat Coach Noll.

    A very complicated man, often misunderstood and undeniably brilliant.  You could make a strong case that he is the most influential person in Pittsburgh sports history.  Like Foodbme previously mentioned, he turned this into a Steelers town.

    Another Steelers legend, Bill Nunn, passed away in May.  What an amazing life he had, including as a scout for the Steelers. He was mostly responsible for them finding the gems in the traditionally black colleges, which were mostly being ignored by the NFL at the time.  Those players included Mel Blount, Johns Stallworth, Donnie Shell and L.C. Greenwood.
