|Subject: L.C. Greenwood dies at 67 Sun Sep 29, 2013 3:57 pm|| |
By Ray Fittipaldo / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Former Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood, a member of the Steeler Curtain defense, died this afternoon. He was 67.
Greenwood, who lived in Point Breeze, had been in the hospital for the past couple of days.
Greenwood played for the Steelers from 1969-81 and earned four Super Bowl rings. He was six-time Pro Bowl selection and registered 73 1/2 sacks during his career, which ranks second in franchise history behind Jason Gildon. Greenwood's sacks are unofficial because the NFL did not officially begin keeping track of sacks until 1982.
Greenwood teamed up with Hall of Fame defensive lineman Joe Greene, Dwight White and Ernie Holmes to become the dominant defensive front four in the NFL in the early 1970s. He was often at his best in the biggest games. In the Super Bowl X victory against Dallas, Greenwood sacked Roger Staubach four times.

Awesome player during the glory days of the steelers defense. He will definitely be missed. Not to be flippant about his passing, but at least he doesn't have to watch what has become of his beloved steelers franchise.
