RIP Franco Harris

Same week as the 50th anniversary of the “Immaculate Reception”.


Still remember watching that game live.



Sad Sad Sad . . . seemed like a genuinely good dude.

That sucks.

Man, as a boy growing up in the 70’s Franco and many of those Steelers were a big part of our pop culture, beyond football. Hate to hear this, but may he rest in peace.

Damn that sucks
Still young at 72


Always loved Franco. Pittsburgh Steelers were my adopted team back in the 70s (cuz, yeah, the Lions sucked).
RIP Franco…

72 is too young
Anyone know the cause?

Immaculate Reception
I remember watching that game
As a kid the Steelers were my alt fav team (Lions)
I loved Bradshaw, Mean Joe and of course Jack Lambert :crazy_face:

Big loss for the Steeler family


Jeez — didn’t know that
Must have been sudden

Wow, I had not heard this.
I was a huge Steelers fan in the late 70’s, early 80’s. I loved Franco and Rocky Bleier, Swann, Stallworth, and all those defensive guys. I still have a bunch of the Steelers cards from then.
RIP Franco.

I didn’t like the Steelers at that time, but it was impossible not to like Franco. Rest in peace!
