Following the recent announcement that Joe Greene’s No. 75 is going to be retired this season, Rooney says that Greene deserves it.
“He was the corner stone of the team of the 70s,” Rooney said.
After retiring one number, does that open the door for others?
“Our hesitation was where we are going to draw the line, where do we stop?” he said.
He adds he doesn’t know how many more numbers they will retire but Greene’s is one that definitely should be.
Rooney also talked about the tribute being planned for Chuck Noll saying the team wouldn’t be where it is without Noll.
“Everything we do here is built on the foundation he built here,” Rooney said.
