Greene Puts the Mean in Dolphins


Ap, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


He's out of the spotlight now, 48 years old and more than a decade beyond Super Bowl glory. Yet from the sidelines, Joe Greene continues to make life miserable for offenses around the NFL.

Greene is not one to dwell on the past. Earlier this year, a story surfaced about a game the Steelers were losing badly to the Chicago Bears during his rookie year. …
