    Like some have said, it was Terry's depression and mental state that led to most of the problems. In an interview I saw with Stallworth, Johnny says that the perceived problems with Coach Noll were all in Terry's head.

    Not that the fans weren't a little over critical of him, but had Terry been able to get the help that he obviously needed, I think his time in Pittsburgh would have been more enjoyable for him.

    I think being Booed didn't help.

    yes that is terrible, i cant believe he was booed after all that. the start of his career i can see. he seemed like the most sensative person in the world too. not the type of personality you want to have if your in the public eye

    Terry never made a ton of money as a Steeler. His money came from the broadcast booth. The players in his day made our kind of money. The first Steeler to make over $1 Mil was Rod Woodson, and only after a hold out ordeal.

    Still, the booing was lame.

    I remember Terry getting booed early in his career. I'm sure my voice was amongst them a time or two but after the first 2 SB victories I can't remember the fans getting on him. By SB victory #3 he was practically a God. Now there was always reported friction between him and Noll. That's not hard to imagine given their diametrically opposed personalities. Noll being the quiet, studious guy who rarely showed his emotions and Bradshaw being, well, Bradshaw.

    Gawd those were great days

    Terry suffers from some pretty serious depression. He has locked himself in his trailer before for hours by himself, and would emerge to the FOX booth only minutes before the broadcasts.

    I try not to criticize him for his problems with the City, as he wrestles with bigger demons on a daily basis.

    I was only 8 when they won their last SB. But I just got done watching all 4 SB's in their original broadcast, halfime, oregame and post game shows as well all on DVD!

    My thoughts.

    Bradshaw did not play as well in the SB's as history remembers. In SB 13, he had 2 fumbles, (one was ran in for a TD, both clearly his fault ) , he threw a bad pick (right to a defender, no steeler in sight and he admitted it was on him), and another pass hit a dallas defender squarely i nthe chest and he dropped it. This was all in the 1st Quarter where they fell behind 14-7. Bradshaw then got hurt , but played well from there on out.
    He could have easily been the goat of the SB, but the Defense kept his offense in there until they got on track.

    The Rams SB was another one. 3 interceptions and they were losing at the half. But he threw 2 incredible passes in the 2nd half to Stallworth and won the game. Summerall didn't want to give him the MVP because of the picks. But they voted him anyway.

    I came away with a lot of respect for Swann. He truly was a big game receiver. Bradshaw would just throw it up and Swann would just go up and get it. There were a lot of intermediate throws that don't show up on highlight films. On one pass, summerall said "swann just went up 5 feet to get that one."

    I also came away with respect for Franco's pass receiving ability. he was an athlete. Bradshaw would fire the ball to him and franco would snag it out of the air like it was no big deal. He was a tremendous outlet for Bradshaw. Franco would run routes right downthe middle of the field and Bradshaw would hit him.

    The Defense was awesome. You couldn't throw the ball on them. They doubled up on the wide REceivers, and lambert would float back to help cover. The down 4 lineman would do all the rushing. The defense was sick. Lambert was always pis sed off about something. He didn't even speak to his teammates much. But he was a player.
    Ham never made a mistake. LC greenwood and Dwiight white were also fantastic not to mention so many more.

    Probably he was always booed because of this:
