Hall of Fame Defensive Tackle “Mean Joe” Greene Kicks Off New Season of NFL Network’s ‘A Football Life’
‘Joe Greene: A Football Life’ Premieres Friday, September 12 at 9:00 PM ET
“When you think of me as a football player, I would like for people to think that I put it on the line every time. Good or bad, win or lose, I put it on the line.” – Joe Greene
“There is nobody else out there that I would put ahead of Joe Greene. By far the best Steeler of all time.” – Jack Ham
As a Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive tackle, four-time Super Bowl champion, 10-time Pro Bowler and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, Joe Greene earned the nickname “Mean Joe” and established himself as one of the most-feared defenders in NFL history. Yet off the field, the husband, father of three and grandfather of seven goes by the name of “Papa Joe” and bears little resemblance to the 13-year NFL veteran.
