Labriola on why the doors should open for Nunn

Ready or not, here it comes:

• At the risk of contributing to the Hall of Fame hangover gripping the nation’s NFL fans around this time, I have something to get off my chest.

• Bill Nunn deserves to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

• Nunn deserves it, not just because he was the artist behind the greatest draft in NFL history, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 1974 version that produced four Hall of Fame players over the first five rounds and a fifth in the form of an undrafted free agent linebacker turned safety.

• Nunn deserves it, not just because of John Stallworth from Alabama A&M, and Mel Blount from Southern, and L.C. Greenwood from Arkansas AM&N, and Frank Lewis from Grambling State, and Dwight White from Texas A&M Commerce, and Ernie Holmes from Texas Southern, and Joe Gilliam from Tennessee State, and the countless others he was responsible for bringing to Pittsburgh during a six-year period that saw the Steelers metamorphosize from laughingstocks to a dynasty.

  • Vance McDonald admits 2019 was a rough season.

McDonald admits he took ‘steps backwards’

By: Teresa Varley,

Shortly after the 2019 season ended, Vance McDonald sat back in his chair, quietly thinking back on the year.

For a player who has always been his own worst critic, he didn’t hold back when he offered an evaluation of his 2019 season.

”I think I took some steps backwards unfortunately as a player,” said a candid McDonald. “I don’t even need a coach to give me criticism because I have too much of it already. I think of it as having almost that edge in 2018, being known for having that play with the stiff arm, the run after whenever I would have a reception. I didn’t have as many of those. It makes me want to attack this offseason and next season that much harder.

”I think offensively it was a much different team. It forced players to take a hard look at where we are, our personnel, the ever-changing lineup because of injuries and so forth. They can all be excuses, but at the same time they all present specific things we have to overcome and adjust to. It took some adjusting.”
