As if Pittsburgh needed another form of motivation for Sunday’s home opener against Houston, it now has one.
The Steelers will honor former defensive linemen Ernie Holmes and Dwight White, as well as former broadcaster Myron Cope, with a video tribute to their careers. It will be followed by a moment of silence and an organized Terrible Towel™ hold prior to the national anthem.
It will be emotional and inspirational, all at once. It will provide a boost to Pittsburgh and make for a tougher assignment for Houston.
