    The Jets game mentioned in the article, was perhaps Terry’s greatest, given the amount of pain he endured.

    A fine article! But do you have any further details about the nature of Bradshaw’s injury and Ben’s? How similar are the two injuries, and how much have medical advances increased the chances of full recovery for Ben? Thank you.

    In the honor roll of great Pittsburgh athletic stars, Terry Bradshaw is occasionally not listed that near to the top.. I guess that is due to his public persona and the way it ended, between him and Chuck Noll and the Steelers when & after he just retired…He nevertheless truly was and is a vital part of identifying us the City of Champions…GodSpeed to you and yours, Terry…

    Bradshaw threw a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter in each of the 4 Super Bowl victories. He was MVP in the last two. He could play big in the big games. Enough said.

    Very interesting piece of Steelers history. For his era, he was probably among the greatest, but the standards, and the offensive nature of the game, have changed drastically since then. Having only eight passing plays in a game would now be unthinkable.

    I consider Bradshaw one of the best I ever saw played. Never mattered how close they were to losing- he never gave up. Those years watching Bradshaw were the best!,

    On the other hand, Roethlisberger’s career began in the second game of the season when he replaced Tommy Maddox who left the game with…. an arm injury. And went on to do what he did. We’ll see if the new guy can do the same.

    Terry Bradshaw always was and still is a man who says what he means and means what he says, even if it is not politically correct or the popular opinion. He is a great leader and America needs more men like Terry.

    Terry was before they started doing”Tommy John surgeries” on everyone, like they do today. That could give Ben some hope, modern medicine, but it could be a tough road for Ben

    I still remember the (spelling “Cat”) thing like it was yesterday. Bradshaw not only
    could spell Cat…..he could spell “WIN” whereas Dallas could never win against him! Never.

    I wish I could muster up the energy to actually CARE about what a bunch of overpaid knucklehead, multi-millionaire, man-children do every Sunday in the fall. How some people dedicate 6 months of the year or more to this utter nonsense is beyond me. Football involves 40% skill/sportsmanship along with 60% dumb luck. Once you combine bad referee calls and frozen hands, what’s the point?

    More people should actually do something productive with their freaking weekends!
