Re: The Myth of Terry Bradshaw
Terry Bradshaw was an immature, sensitive, depression case. Fans reacting to things is one thing, but Chuck Noll reacting makes it credible. Who did Chuck Noll ride during his 20+ years in Pittsburgh? Only one I know is Terry Bradshaw. Bradshaw was the only crackle jack in a group of reserved, mild mannered professionals, with the exception of psychos like Lambert and Joe Greene. Mel Blount, Swann, Stallworth, Butler, Harris, Bleier, Ham, Shell, etc etc were all cut from the same fabric. Even the ones who had style like LC and Ernie Holmes, they were still reserved and calm like thier teammates. All guys that followed Chuck Noll. Chuck Noll didnt like RA RA crap. He never rested on his laurals. And when you see interviews with guys like Butler or Blount during those years, even after Super Bowl wins, they were saying, we need to get back to work and get another one.
Terry wanted to have fun, I get it. But he was on a team lead by an emperor who believe in dominance at every moment of every day. Terry figured it out eventually, he earned and deserves everything.
