This Date in Football: Happy Birthday, Jack Lambert

Pittsburgh Steelers, Tales from the Vault, TCIPF Staff, Top 10

One of the most iconic players and greatest Steelers in NFL history turns 60 years old on this date in football, July 8, 2012.  Jack Lambert’s fearsome stare and fearless play were cornerstones of the Steel Curtain Defense of the 1970s.  By the time his 11 year career in Pittsburgh concluded in 1984, Lambert had more Super Bowl rings – four – than he had front teeth.  A 7-time first team All-Pro, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990, and since then, his name and jersey have only grown more legendary.  Today, we send happy birthday wishes to Jack Lambert, and look back at him as originally presented on the Top Ten Steelers of All-Time.
