    And I thought Barney was good.
    Dick got several Super Bowl rings as Steeler coach.

    Barney and Lebeau played together for a number of years. Their combination allowed our defense to be dominant during that time. NOBODY threw to Barney's corner cause he'd just pick them off. Lebeau was rather slow but crafty. He guarded his position well. The voters were instructed to place Lebeau in the HOF based solely on his splaying career. I think it was nice when the steeler PLAYERS showed up at the ceremony all wearing his Lion's jersey.

    Yeah by the time Lem arrived, Dick was no longer an ironman.
