PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – The 2015 Pro Football Hall Of Fame class will be announced on Jan. 31 and former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Kevin Greene is once again a finalist.
Greene is one of 18 finalists, and this is the fourth year he has been a finalist.
He joined 93.7 The Fan to talk about the process and not being selected the previous three-years.
“I wouldn’t really say it’s frustrating, I try not to let it control my emotions to where I’m frustrated,” Greene said. “I will say I don’t understand the process I think, I scratch my head, knowing how I played, and playing the same position as Lawrence Taylor, and playing longer than the great L.T. and actually being more productive as far as quarterback sacks, and he was known as the sack master, the guy that revolutionized the position.”
Greene played 15 years for the Steelers, St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers, and San Francisco 49ers.
He finished his career with 160 sacks, third most in NFL history.
“I know I came after Lawrence Taylor but I’d like to think I did it longer, and did it better, if you look at the numbers and production it pretty much speaks for itself.”
Lawrence Taylor finished his career with 132.5 sacks.
“I scratch my head more than anything, and question, I just don’t understand it. I try not to get frustrated because it’s out of my control.”
