Part Steeler Part wookie - Brett Kiesel is the new NFL beard god

Move over Dan Fouts, your 1970s and 1980s beard may have earned you a place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame but it failed to take you to a Super Bowl. Up until last week you had the most famous facial hair in NFL history.

Now you are a runner-up once again as Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel has grown the greatest beard in NFL history.

Having always chickened out after a maximum of about 5 or 6 days, after my wife tells me repeatedly that I look like a tramp, I have never grown a proper beard, so I have no idea what it takes to add the same amount of facial hair as Chewbacca the Wookie.

Keisel is a man on a mission I’m sure – I just wonder if the Steelers fail to win the Superbowl (XLV) will he keep growing it and end up with the full Wookie experience?

Could this be Brett Keisel by the time we get to 2011 OTAs?

Do you think that an NFL player past or present has grown a better beard? I’d love to hear or see evidence………..
