Steelers Daily Links: Greenwood HOF Case, Shazier Selling CBD



NORFOLK, Va. -- L.C. Greenwood, a former Pittsburgh Steeler, and Luis Tiant, a former Boston Red Sox player, stand on the brow of USS Albany (SSN 753) with Chief of the Boat, Michael Nichols, before going below decks to tour Albany June 13. The tour was part of Summerfest 2007, hosted by Naval Station Norfolk's Morale Welfare and Recreation. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Christina M. Shaw (RELEASED)

John Turney of the Talk of Fame Network thinks it’s long overdue for former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“Greenwood in the senior pool, it’s time to give him one last look to see if a player with four rings, six Pro Bowls, two All-Pros and an all-decade selection should be outside the Hall of Fame looking in,” Turney wrote. “Too many Steelers or not, the Hall should be reserved for how well an individual performs, not whom he played for. L.C. Greenwood performed like a Hall of Famer, and it’s time he had a Gold Jacket to match his shoes.”

🏈 Colin Cowherd of FS1 reacted to the Steelers’ 17-10 win over the Baltimore Ravens on The Volume.

“I just don’t see it. I think there was an era where you could play great defense and hit one or two big throws over the top. I just don’t think this is the era,” Cowherd said. “I think that’s a nine-win team. Let’s be honest. Their defense will win eight games. It will overwhelm bad quarterbacks.

“Pittsburgh is 3-2, which they feel 1-4. Like the fan base is unhappy.”

🏈 Former Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier’s new line Steel City Greats CBD officially kicked off on Tuesday.
“This is the spot for those of you who are looking for natural alternatives in pursuit of improving your daily health, managing existing conditions, or just maintaining a greater sense of balance in life,” Shazier said about his new product on X.

🏈 Steelers cornerback Patrick Peterson addressed his “little munchkin” comment on Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers prior to Sunday’s game. Peterson received some flak for it on social media, but he meant no disrespect by it. In South Florida lingo, it was actually a compliment to Flowers.

🏈 Steelers wide receiver George Pickens has no drops on 39 targets this season, according to Pro Football Focus.

🎂 Happy Birthday to Steelers All-Pro outside linebacker T.J. Watt, born on October 11, 1994, in Pewuakee, Wisconsin.

🎥 NFL Films took an inside look to the mutual respect that Mike Tomlin and John Harbaugh have for each other. Sunday’s game was the 34th time that Tomlin and Harbaugh coached against each other. That’s the second-most meetings for any pair of coaches in NFL history. Only George Halas and Curly Lambeau, who coached against each other in 49 games between 1921 and 1953, faced off more times of any pair of coaches in NFL history. Tomlin  is 19-15 against Harbaugh.
