In a sign of support for the man they call Coach Dad, the Pittsburgh Steelers roster will be traveling to Canton, Ohio to take in the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies for defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise though. Remember how a number of LeBeau’s defensive players wore retro Detroit Lions jerseys a few years ago when they played in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton as a subtle hint that they felt LeBeau belonged in the Hall for his underrated playing career?
This is the kind of stuff that builds chemistry and cohesiveness inside the locker room. Steeler Nation would love to see LeBeau’s unit return to its 2008 form this coming season after last year’s inconsistent campaign. A team trip like this to support the man that puts so much into helping them succeed could go a long ways towards making that happen.
