R.I.P.

I have an Ernie autograph, I got years ago at training camp, when he made a visit. Glad to see that he lived a long life!

-Ernie Stautner

So long #70

I know Ernie had Alzheimers but hopefully he wasn't too far gone to be able to understand that the Steelers had won the Superbowl almost two weeks ago.

I think he may have played in more Pro Bowls than any Steeler ever, also he played some offense, and he alone had three career safeties

I believe that Stautner is the ONLY ONE who has had his number retired....Not 100%

Thank God he was 80 and lived a full life...I'm getting tired of hearing about all these ex-Steelers dying young...
