Bradshaw
 
There are a few people around here that can remember Terry Bradshaw making you cry. Either tears of joy or grief. Bradshaw had a deep abiding love for throwing into double and triple coverage. I think he was all about having fun and taking chances out there. Winning and losing was never life and dath for him.

I think that Terry had a rocky relationship with Steeler fans because we were life and death and he wasn't. We had a failure to communicate.

Over the years, we both learned lessons.

Bradshaw stayed close to the game. His football mind evolved with the game.

I think it would be great if Bradshaw would come back to the Burg as an OC for about 5 years, and allow us to build a relationship with him that we never had.

Bradshaw could design an offense that used Bens strengths. Brad is getting old. Time is running out on him and us. It is a shame that the Bradshaw/ Steeler fan relationship was so bitter for so long.

If I was Mr.Rooney, I would ask Chuck Noll to go with him to talk to Bradshaw about becoming the new OC, and offer him 10 million over 5 years.

I think Bradshaw would go for it. In a lot of ways, it would be a good thing.

Bradshaw would do a good job. He has a good feel for the game.

But then, if I was Mr. Rooney, i would ask Dorsett or Harris to be the running back coach, and Marino to be the QB coach, Joe Green to be the D line coach, and ...........I wonder if Lynn Swann would like to coach. And what Greg Lloyd, Mel Blount, Lambert?

Are great players lousy coachs, or are our owners lousy owners?

Great player in his day....but would make an AWFUL coach. He's happy anyways doing what he's doing and makes a good salary doing so.

What I loved about Bradshaw was that he just loved to play and he loved to throw the ball.

He wasn't a "systems" guy and he didn't care much for being told what to do. Historically, when you look at his stats, he hardly appears in the "Top 5" or even "Top 10" in most of the so-called "important" categories.

But if ever there was a MONEY player in the NFL - he was it and I still think of him as the best QB I've ever seen.

As far as whether or not he'd make a good OC, he probably wouldn't. But I totally understand where you're coming from and he WOULD be someone who could understand Ben because in many ways, when I look at Ben, I see Bradshaw.

I really don't think Terry would make a great coach, but I respect him as a player. As for Singeltary: Say what you want about the guy, he was probably the best no-shit kind of guy i'd seen coach in a while. I absolutely loved it when he benched his player because of his attitude.

Some former players make great coaches, and others don't, or wouldn't. Lynn Swann's athleticism is not something he could teach, and that was pretty much his game. Bradshaw is pretty dyslexic, which is why it took the game so long to slow down for him, and why once it did he was the perfect guy to implement Noll's offense on the field. It also means his understanding of the game is as subconscious as it is conscious, and he won't be able to impart that very well. Add with that his personality and Ben's ego, and he is the absolute last OC you want on the Steelers sideline.

I am old enough (54) to remember Terry well. If the internet was around in the 70's he would of been belittled worse than Ben. I loved him, he threw the prettiest long ball I believe ever but he took chances and made some errors that left you shaking your head. Hey the first two SuperBowls where truly defensive wins. The latter two he had come into his own and were more offensive.

Ben would have to start watching film to advance to be worthy of being Bradshaw's laundry boy.

Some of his throws defied physics, but the receivers knew where the defense was by Bradshaw's throws when he was on.
