Joe Greene urges Hall to re-consider Andy Russell’s case


The Pittsburgh Steelers had plenty to be proud of in the 1970s — four Super Bowls, Chuck Noll, the Immaculate Reception, the Terrible Towel. But nothing and nobody were more noteworthy than its legendary defense, the famed “Steel Curtain” that was the hallmark of one of pro football’s most memorable teams.

So good was that unit that in 1976, after the Steelers stumbled to a 1-4 start, it held its remaining nine opponents to a total … total … of 28 points as Pittsburgh pitched five shutouts, outscored opponents 234-28 and ran the table, winning all of its last nine games.

So now the question: How is it that there are more Steelers on offense (5) from that era than on defense (4)?

“On defense,” answered Hall-of-Fame defensive tackle Joe Greene, ” we don’t pass the ball, we don’t run the ball and we don’t catch it. I think the defensive line got a lot of publicity about the front four and the ‘Steel Curtain.’ ”

Yet Pittsburgh’s defensive line has only Greene in Canton. Its linebackers have Jack Ham and Jack Lambert. And the secondary has Mel Blount. But that’s it, and Greene thinks it’s time for a change. Specifically, he thinks it’s time that former linebacker Andy Russell gains more attention from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“We talk about him as being the third guy (as a linebacker), but he’s really the first,” Greene said. “Andy Russell was there when we were the Steelers … you know, the team that everybody could beat. Andy suffered through some terrible years.

“Andy was a special, special teammate, experiencing all of the bad things that happened with the Steelers. He could share with the group the kinds of things that you needed to do to be successful. He was the  guy that ‘brought the word’ to the locker room — and I mean by ‘bringing the word,’ the coaching philosophy, the teaching that Chuck Noll and his staff placed on us.

“He was able to translate and tell us that these are things that are going to come to pass and come to fruition. (And he’d tell us), ‘You need to listen to this guy.’ Over my 13 years I found out through experience you can have great coaches, but if you don’t have a messenger in the locker room who’s carrying his message it becomes very difficult. And Andy did that.”

Greene isn’t the first person to promote Russell. Ham did it on a Talk of Fame Network broadcast two summers ago, citing much the same value of Russell to the Steelers as Greene. But there are two obstacles to Canton that Russell must overcome: 1) First, there already are two linebackers from his Steelers’ teams in the Hall, and 2) he was in Pittsburgh for two of the Steelers’ four Super Bowls, not all four as Lambert and Ham were.

Greene is unfazed. As he pointed out, Russell’s value to the team wasn’t measured in All-Pro or Pro Bowl nominations (though he was a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro), nor was it measured in stats (though he was the team’s 1971 MVP). It was measured in the intangibles, with Russell’s leadership so invaluable he was a team captain or 10 years.

“Every day, every practice, the guy that shows up to play, the guy that pays attention in the meetings, the guy that talks in practice,” Greene said. “One of the things that coach Noll used to tell us all the time (was) ‘You have to play your position like you know all of them, and you have to be able to communicate.’ And that was one thing that Andy did. It was all new to me.

“He’d be telling teammates what to do and where to be, telling them about formations and what plays (to anticipate). We saw as a young group how important it was to plug yourself into what everybody’s responsibilities were; what we were supposed to do as a team. And that made it so much easier.

“Andy showed us how to win, how to enjoy practice, how to prepare ourselves for the weekend. (He was a) very special leader.”

    Maybe they could trade out John Stallworth for Russell. There’s your answer on the skewed offense/defense ratio. I agree Andy Russell is a legit borderline HoF candidate, but when it comes to senior era LBs Chuck Howley should get in first. Russell has zero first team AP All Pro selections while Howley has 5.

    I’m STILL in your nightmares (along with the 60s-mid 70s, 90s and 2010s Cowboys; BOOM! lol) and you’re STILL replying to me, huh, butt-hurt Steelers fan? HoF and general history articles can affect and/or be of interest to anyone, moron. All these posts are for the general audience and not just a particular team’s homers. I certainly have an interest in any discussion of senior era LB candidates until Chuck Howley is finally inducted as he should have been long ago. HIS contributions (winning America’s Team its first Super Bowl, successfully becoming the league’s first weakside LB, etc. ) certainly changed NFL history for the better.

    Hurt from what? The Steelers have more Super Bowls (6) than the Cowboys (5) and two of those are at the Cowboys expense, which exposed them as a paper champion. Roger Staubach received a huge doughnut (0-4; that’s O-and-FOUR) for his career starts vs. the Steelers. Good to see you keep desperately coming back to the Steelers posts and good to see you STILL have John Stallworth in your nightmares. I thought the Hall of Fame induction of a Cowboys wide receiver this summer would stop your irrational, whining outbursts. But, oh well, T.O had to be T.O. LMAO!!! LOL!!! LMAO!!! LOL!!! Look forward to you crawling back to another STEELERS posting site. I know you’ll be back because you love the Steelers so much. Ever see me on a Cowboys’ post?

      Well Chuck Howley beat the Steelers the last 7 games he played them (so much for the “paper champion” idiocy, LOL), the 90s Cowboys beat Pittsburgh by double digits every time they played them (including in the Super Bowl; BOOM!), and Dallas has beaten the Steelers every time they’ve played so far this decade.

      This isn’t a “Steelers post”. It’s a Talk of Fame article about a Steeler who’s making an argument about the Hall of Fame that could impact the rest of the senior pool, especially other LB candidates regardless of team. And even if it had been an article only about the Steelers or any other team I might read it because I’m a football fan who likes history, not just a Cowboys fan. I’ll post if I have something to say whether you like it or not. When I first posted on this page I barely noticed you were there and hardly gave you a second thought. I certainly didn’t mention you. And yet you couldn’t help yourself. You HAD to respond to me. Are you really going to whine about my posts every time we’re on the same page, LOL?

    Thanks for taking the bait, dummy. The Dallas 7-game winning streak you refer to only resulted in one win in the ’70s. That you always mislead/lie and say it lasted into the “mid-70s” was only because they didn’t play each other from ’72 until Super Bowl X…then the tables turned dramatically. The results from the Super Bowl matchups and the Super Bowl Trophies (Pittsburgh-6; Dallas-5) show that.

    “…Dallas has beaten the Steelers every time they’ve played so far this decade.” Do they have any Super Bowl trophies to show for this century? “Barely noticed” I was there yeah, right), then takes a dig at Stallworth–who roasted Cliff Harris on his way to the HOF. You can watch that great Cowboy wide receiver T.O. walk across the stage and be inducted…MY BAD!!! LOL!!! LOL!!! LOL!!!

    I say to the “mid 70s” because Pittsburgh didn’t end that losing streak until then, moron. Even with those two 4 point fluky SBs the Steelers never won 7 or even 6 games in a row against Dallas. Chuck Howley owned Andy Russell head to head, so by your own “logic” Howley is more deserving of Canton (that’s not how real logic works but I’m just showing that you’re wrong even on your own terms). It’s funny that you feel John Stallworth is more deserving of Canton than all those Steelers defenders who still aren’t in. As for recent decades, the one sided HEAD TO HEAD beat downs the Cowboys have inflicted on Pittsburgh over and over again, both in the 90s glory years and even in a mediocre era by Cowboys standards, are enough to give you nightmares about America’s Team.

    PS – I couldn’t care less about TO’s induction. I would have made him wait longer anyway.

I just posted a bunch of facts on another site showing that Jordan was better than Lebron for reasons beyond title count, including scoring average, steal average, defensive awards, offensive rebounds, etc.. In that scene Shawn was smarter but wrong while the teacher was right but dumb in his argument. Whoever wrote that dialogue doesn’t know much about sports.

      It’s hilarious that you just moved on from your Goodell/video faceplant without a mention. Probably the best move at this point though. You also forgot to call yourself a “Genius” this time, moron. LMFAO. I was especially talking about your debunked comments on Cliff Harris, but the importance of your 6-5 refrain has certainly been refuted, complete with a lot of numbers you’ve fled from. And yes, even your stupid video movie clip was debunked earlier, LOL.

      “Haynes could cover AND would tackle. Deion absolutely refused to tackle. A defensive player who avoids contact. Pathetic.”

      And yet Deion will be on the 100th Anniversary team, mark my words. He’s the greatest cover corner of all time. If you truly like tackling DBs (which you don’t), you’d not only support Cliff Harris but you’d be a fan of Mel Renfro. In addition to being a shut down corner with world class track speed (he helped set a relay world record in college) he was so physical that he made Pro Bowl at safety as well as CB. In fact Renfro made 10 Pro Bowls to Haynes’ 9. Haynes made 2 first team All Pros to Renfro’s 1 but Renfro won 2 Super Bowls to Haynes’ 1. Haynes was All Decade because he played every year of the 1980s. Renfro wasn’t because his career straddled decades. But Renfro would have been a first ballot or short wait HoFer if not for the anti-Cowboys bias.

      Regardless, he was a great tackler. Here’s some more fuel for your nightmares.
