With nine members of the 1970’s Pittsburgh Steelers already in the Football Hall of Fame, you would think that the team that won four Super Bowls in that decade would be sufficiently represented in Canton. Some have said that they have the right amount, but the wrong representatives. Those people point to L.C. Greenwood
as the omission.
As a member of the famed Steel Curtain, L.C. Greenwood was part of the most dominating defense in football history that propelled the Steelers to four Super Bowls in a five year period. Greenwood was a big part of that dynasty as he was a six time Pro Bowl selection who terrified opposing Quarterbacks. Although the sack was not yet an official statistic, Greenwood totaled five of them in his four Super Bowls. He was tall, fast and was seemingly everywhere on the field.
L.C. Greenwood was a Hall of Fame finalist six times but has yet to make the cut. Should another 1970’s Steeler get in, it would have to be Mr. Greenwood.
