Even though he was never about the recognition, it's great to see that he is being recognized for all he has done.
I like that the Steelers draft room was named after Bill Nunn before he died and the training camp fields at St. Vincent were named after Chuck Noll before he died.
My favorite moment was seeing him chasing after a cameraman and laughing while headed into the locker room at halftime while trailing on the scoreboard. Seemed to loosen the team up a bit to come back and win in the second half.

"Before you can win a game, you have to not lose it." -- Chuck Noll
hawaiian: That is a perfect epitaph. Two lines of text, one picture. No more need be said. I think he'd approve.
Flying the Steelers flag at half mast.
I was born in 1977. I never saw a Noll coached team that was any good. However, the way my dad talked about him taught me that the word Noll meant coach. The same way Rooney means owner. I remember the news stories about him conducting the symphony. No one I knew gave a fig about the symphony until then.
It's time we all find "our life's work."
