R.I.P. Ernie Holmes

Passed away last night in a car wreck. Rev. Holmes was an original Steel Curtain tackle and a beast on and off the field. He'll be remembered for being a man who shaved his head into an arrow, who killed a cow for his birthday and who shot at a helicopter with a shotgun. He still shares the team record for most consecutive games with a sack (6). After winning 2 rings with the Steelers, he became an ordained minister. He'll be missed by his parish and the Steelers diaspora.
