    Im old enough to remember watching Bradshaw.

    I think Bradshaw is a tale of two QBs. Young Terry was absolute garbage. He was 100 percent about his gifts and just terrible at reading defenses. Even as a kid I remember thinking… why did he do THAT? That pass was so stupid. All the time.

    Dont get any sense he was the greatest student of the game.

    He grew into greatness through years of trial and error. LOTS OF error, experience.

    His deep ball was beautiful indeed, Always was clutch.

    By the time he retired, he was as elite as they come.

    My opinion? Few were as gifted but in todays NFL he would never be given the time to become great.

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    but Terry was helped tremendously by the team around him. in the Super Bowl against the Vikings he went 9-14 for only 96 yds passing.

    while true , back then 1) you didn't throw a lot.. 2) when your def gives up about 100 yards the entire game you do not have much of a reason to throw the ball much and that defensive performance vs the vikes was about as perfect as you can get don't you think?

    It was Terry who saved us in the Super Bowl against the Rams wasn't it? The defense got served up by Vince Ferragamo?? That bomb to Stallworth that saved us was thrown by Terry wasn't it? That second super bowl we played against Dallas that was a shoot out, that was Terry who was the QB wasn't it? Terry won some Super Bowls for us with his arm. This notion that Terry was just along for the ride has been greatly exaggerated.

    where did I ever elude to the bold ? in fact I was the guy who first brought up Terry in this thread ..it is my belief that he is/was /might always be the greatest qb in steelers history ...since the goal every year is to WIN the SB and Terry did it 4 times in 6 years with ZERO defeats he may never be unseated ?? perfection is hard to beat 4-0 is perfection

    Not you; You never eluded to that. Someone else did. It was HS .. you captured his post when you responded to him.

    I agree. Even the bombs to Johnny were more difficult THROWS than catches. X on the other hand featured amazing catches by Swann.

    At that point in his career he was rolling.
