Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher high-fives Hines Ward after their team won Super Bowl XL. Each man will be formally inducted into the Steelers Hall of Honor this weekend, along with Elbie Nickel and Larry Brown.

The two days leading into Monday night’s game represents the third annual Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Honor induction ceremony.

This year’s class includes 1970s offensive tackle Larry Brown, former head coach Bill Cowher, franchise career receptions leader Hines Ward and post-World War II tight end Elbie Nickel.

The formal induction ceremony is Sunday evening at Heinz Field; the 2019 class also will be honored at halftime of the following day’s Steelers game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Looking forward to honoring those guys,” coach Mike Tomlin said, “and the best way to honor those guys is with a winning performance.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
