Default Re: Who's the Better Leader?

When I started watching the Steelers way back in the mid-60's our QB's were guys like Kent Nix and Dick Shiner-(yes that was his real name), so I'm just glad we've had both Terry and Ben through the years. As far as on the field leadership, I would have to lean towards Ben because he never had near the talent around him as Terry did. Plus I still remember Terry being benched on occasion for Terry Hanratty and Joe Gilliam. In fact Gilliam started the first half of the season during our first Super Bowl year. After sitting for several games and watching from the bench, when Noll decided to give Bradshaw another chance he became a different player and his career really took off then.
