The decals will be unveiled for the Sept. 7 home opener against the Cleveland Browns, a date already designated Chuck Noll Day as the result of bipartisan resolution introduced by Pennsylvania’s two United States Senators – Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Bob Casey (D-Pa.).
“Well, first it was certainly nice of Senators Casey and Toomey to sponsor that resolution, and that in fact will be the day that we too will honor Chuck,” said Rooney during an interview that can be heard in its entirety on Steelers Nation Radio. “The team will be, for the first time, wearing a decal with Chuck’s initials on it. That will be the first game we wear it, and then that decal will be worn on the helmet for the rest of the season. Then, we will have some other ways to commemorate Chuck.”
Rooney said the colors and design of the Noll commemorative decal will be revealed on Steelers.com at a later date.
