RIP, as good a rival as you can ask for
One of the great football minds, RIP Mr. Noll..................
I moved this to the Fan Zone because of the impact he had on the NFL and in one of our greatest rivalries of the past.
Rest in peace, Coach Noll ..
Sad day. Great coach.
R.I.P.. Coach Noll. You were a true legend.
Provided some great games and everlasting memories.
You'll be missed Chuck. Condolences to family and friends.
RIP Coach Noll.
He had quite the career. Player under Paul Brown, defensive coordinator under Don Shula, and coach of a dominant team. He helped develop two great defensive minds in Bud Carson and George Perles, and helped the Steelers completely revamp how they approached the draft. The end of his time in Pittsburgh was not great, but it shows how important the QB position is ( he followed Bradshaw with Cliff Stoudt, Mark Malone and Bubby Brister - ouch). Also an astute student of military history. RIP.

Whoops I posted it in the NFL Zone. I didn't see it there and didn't imagine it would be here.
The guy rarely gets mentioned with the top coaches either. 4-0 in superbowls is amazing regardless off your talent level. Beating that 70s Dallas team twice who had as much talent as anyone was not an easy task. RIP.
Great coach, great man, .. but I think he truly hated our Cowboys.
What a terrific coach, and a truly respected and most hated (to face) foe back in the day. My condolences to his family and to the entire Steelers Nation. This is exactly on par in terms of a sad day as when we lost Coach Landry.
RIP Charles Henry "Chuck" Noll.
May God be kind to you Coach! Thanks for all the memories on gameday. A real 'Burgh kinda guy, SALUTE!
For those of you who didnt get to see the 70's Steelers, those were some great teams. Check out their 1974 draft. Chuck Noll was a great coach, brought out the best in all that talent.
