Steelers Daily Links: Cowher Display at Canton; NFL Films on Immaculate Reception
Former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher has a special exhibit at the Pro Football Hall of Fame this week, and NFL Films made a documentary about the camera and cameraman that filmed the Immaculate Reception in 1972.
🏉 NFL Network: Analyst Daniel Jeremiah endorsed a Kenny Pickett-Jordan Addison pairing in Pittsburgh. “I will say this, it’s kind of an interesting spot, (pick) 17, the Pittsburgh Steelers. I know they have pieces, I obviously love what they got from George Pickens. But man, you’ve got a quarterback in Kenny Pickett who made some sweet, sweet music with Jordan Addison at Pitt. That would be tempting, even though they have offensive line that needs to be addressed. I’m sure corner is big on their priority list. But that would be a fun one to see those guys get back together where they played college ball together.” Jeremiah has Addison going to the New York Giants at 25th overall in his latest mock draft.
🏉 The Score: Cameron Heyward has recorded 8+ sacks in five of the last six seasons. Only one player in the NFL has recorded more seasons with 8+ sacks during that span (Yannick Ngakoue, who has done it all six years since 2017).
🏉 Pro Football Hall of Fame: This week’s Gold Jacket Spotlight of the week is Bill Cowher. This special display honoring his career is being featured in Canton throughout this week.
🏉 NFL Films: Fifty years later, NFL Films dusted off the Immaculate Reception camera for one special Steelers game.
An enduring bond between Franco, catch, and camera.

🏉 NFL Network: The Carolina Panthers hired Frank Reich as their new head coach. Interim head coach Steve Wilks got a second interview and did a very nice job on the field and in his interviews. Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore also reportedly really stood out in this process. Reich is the first head coach hiring of this year’s cycle.
🏉 NFL Network: Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn informed interested teams that he is staying in Dallas. Quinn was a top candidate for the Cardinals’ head coaching job and also interviewed with the Colts and Broncos. But his heart is in Dallas and he wants to win a Super Bowl there.
The 49ers are the first team to enter the Conference Championship Game on a 12-game winning streak since the 2007 Patriots were 17-0 against the Chargers. The others during the Super Bowl era are the 2004 Steelers (15) – lost, 2003 Patriots (13) – won, 1972 Dolphins (15) – won.
🏉 Former Steelers running back Merril Hoge celebrated his 58th birthday on Thursday.
📅 On this date in 1969, the Steelers hired Chuck Noll as their new head coach. Noll changed the trajectory of the franchise by leading the the Steelers to four Super Bowl titles in the 1970s.
📅 Founder of the Steelers Art Rooney Sr. “The Chief” was also born on this date in 1901.
