Steelers Honor “Mean” Joe Greene on 75th Birthday

Players, coaches, and front office members from the Pittsburgh Steelers, past and present, all took to social media to wish the legendary “Mean” Joe Greene a very happy 75th birthday on Friday. Greene (who wore #75 which is now retired), is arguably the most influential player in franchise history to rock the black and gold.

Greene was a Steeler his entire career, playing from 1969-1981. He won four Super Bowls, was named Defensive Player of the Year, twice, earned five First Team All-Pro selections, three Second Team All-Pro selections, 10 Pro Bowl selections, and a plethora of other accolades.
