I am going with Terry. Wasn't around to see him play and honestly know little of his rep as a player at the time but he is from a generation where I would expect most people to be strong leaders or more close to being "class acts". Ben has a history of doing dumb shit and even recently running off at the mouth after the Cowboys game. Not that I dislike Ben but facts are facts.

Also Terry has more Superbowl appearances and rings.

How is this even close? Ben definitely has more physical talent...but as a leader to his teammates..it's not even close.
Terry showed up in big games, that is what champs are made of. He is very underrated.

I voted for Terry Paxton Bradshaw and his four Super Bowl rings.

Terry called his own plays. He drove that offense. He remains one of the best big play QBs of all time.

He had nothing to do with it; he was lucky and went along for the ride.
I'm guessing you never saw Terry play in live action, just on tapes and DVD's.
Nah, never saw Terry play, only been a Steeler fan since the dawn of Chuck.

Which makes your comment that Terry just happened to be there at the right time and got carried along by the rest of the team even more unbelievable.
What were you watching? It couldn't have been # 12.

You could put Charlie Brown in surrounded by excellent players and make him look great.
I would hate to even think about Terry being a part of our offence the past few years, probably be a 3rd stringer.

yeah, Terry Bradshaw would never be able to beat out Byron Leftwich or Charlie Batch for the back-up job...

Exactly. Ben may be the more talented QB, but Terry always raised his play to the highest level when it counted the most.

Great thread, by the way. Two great QBs.
