According to the resolution, Sept. 7 is designated “Chuck Noll Day” and recognizes the life and career of the former coach and his contributions to Pittsburgh, the commonwealth and the NFL.

You simply cannot measure the social, political and economic impact Chuck had on the city and the state. One man made a huge difference. There's lesson in this.

On Sept 7 I will be appropriately adorned.

Nice honor...indeed, Chuck would have hated the fuss, but he deserves it.

This is fairly common for a state senator to push across this for good people who make a impact and attach it to a bill.


So you're belittling it or saying it is a fine thing? Come, let's be clear, like a brave little boy.

The Emperor's new clothes?

Any word on whether or not The NFL Network as something planned to coincide with this? My guess is probably not.

They'll have a black screen with a photo of Chuck Noll and his dates of birth and death as the intro to a commercial break at some point during the NFL Game Day broadcast.

Heinz Field should be renamed Chuck Noll Field. It'll never happen because of the money they receive from Heinz, but it should.
