You mentioned the playoff efficiency stats but not the career marks. In that category, it is a monstrous difference.
Who cares about regular season stats? I was told those aren't important. Your entire argument is that Ben puts up better regular season stats than Bradshaw. Who cares? Is Peyton Manning better than Joe Montana?
Would any of the Steelers you mentioned be in the HOF if Bradshaw hadn't won 4 superbowls? I don't think so. Roethlisberger has had a consistently better
defense than Bradshaw. Swann got into the HOF because of great postseason performances- he caught more than 50 passes in his career once.
Let's look at Bradshaw's superbowl ratings (where you say he only had 1 good game) 108, 122, 119, 102.... clutch!
I already pointed out that you cannot compare stats from the 70s to stats now. Stats are greatly inflated now.
