But did he spell the "Tom" without being spotted the "t" or "m"?

It wasn't elbow surgery, he secretly hatched some sort of body snatcher essence of Bradshaw in hospital, that then went on to inhabit a child body so Bradshaw could live forever playing football.

Brady will have similar surgery in the next 10 years and the cycle will repeat. It's been Bradshaw winning super bowls all this time.

Study it out, sheeple.

I recently found an old SI and discovered that Bradshaw lost his starting job the year the Steelers won his first title and only got it back because the black QB who took it passed too much.

Now this.

Why am I learning so much about Terry Bradshaw these days?

Why are you making a thing out of the guy being black? Sounds like you've got a narrative in mind.

I recall that season so well. I was up the road going back to college at Indiana PA and I remember all the fussing and fighting between the three camps of Terry Bradshaw, Joe Gilliam and Terry (The Hat) Hanratty. Every evening's sports news was full of the quarterbacks discussion.

Should've transferred it into Worthlessberger, so Pittsburgh would have all the Lombardis.

It was interesting to consider that there could've been a Black Super Bowl-winning QB a decade-plus before Doug Williams - and in fact may have been considered the best QB of all time for decades had he done so.

Then it was more interesting, given how the narrative around Black QBs had been "they run too much and aren't capable passers," that he'd been benched for passing too much.

His winning the job that offseason was the cover story for the magazine and I wondered how it was covered contemporaneously.
