Default Bradshaw on Peyton: If you like losing Super Bowls, he

Quote:
Former Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw says current Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is great — as long as you stop watching after the regular season ends.

Bradshaw said during his his one-man show, America’s Favorite Dumb Blonde, that he views Manning as a regular-season star and a playoff choker.

“Peyton Manning, considered the best quarterback to play the game today. Nobody would argue with that — if you like winning good during the season and losing Super Bowls, that’s your guy,” Bradshaw said, via PFT Commenter.

Terry Bradshaw is the most overrated QB of all-time.

Shutdown corner just had a blurb...on most overrated/underrated QBs all time.

Overrated were - Namath and McNabb

Underrated were - Kurt Warner and Brees

Yeah, he just had the good luck to be playing with a team which got the job done 4 times.

I would have him second, TB was good not great. Joe Willie Namath was below average but is lauded and in the Hall because the Jets D held the Colts to only 7 points to back up his guarantee

Guy could sling it.

Won his rings against quality teams.

Won his rings when Ds were allowed to be brutal.

Plus he had to succeed despite baldness - far more challenging that a "high forehead."

Bringing up his stats in the article and comparing them to Manning shows how stupid the author is.

You can't compare the 70's with today. 85% of the greatest defenses of all-time (statistically) played in the 1970's.

Receivers could be mugged...and in the case of Lynn Swann...cold-cocked from behind even if the ball was no where near you.

There is no era that will ever ever ever compare to the degree of difficulty in being a QB than the 1970's.

I'm sometimes convinced Peyton wouldn't win a single game in the 1970's with how skittish he is. Hell, the Pats got just a little physical in 2004 with him and his receivers and Manning had a complete meltdown...total meltdown.

So, in defense of Terry:

Career postseason record: 14-5
Career postseason statistics: 261-456, 3833 yards, 30 TD, 26 INT; 83.0 passer rating
Quote:
Terry Bradshaw is just one of two quarterbacks to win four Super Bowls.

In each of the Steelers' Super Bowl victories, he posted a passer rating above 100. He led a fourth quarter comeback in the second and fourth games, and threw a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of each game.

As a matter of fact, Bradshaw's fourth quarter passing statistics in the Super Bowl look like this:

11-16, 292 yards, 4 TD

That is not a typo. Bradshaw averaged 18 yards per pass attempt. He threw five incompletions against four touchdown passes. His final pass in his first three Super Bowls was a touchdown pass, and in his fourth Super Bowl, it was a 45-yard completion that set up a final touchdown.

His passer rating is a jaw-dropping 151.0, and he was awarded the MVP trophy in his final two Super Bowls.

Bradshaw doesn't just shine in the Super Bowl either.

There was the "Immaculate Reception," a fourth-down, game-winning, 60-yard touchdown pass to Franco Harris on the final play of the game. Then there were the 1976 AFC divisional playoffs, where Bradshaw posted a perfect passer rating against the Baltimore Colts.

Bradshaw threw for two or more touchdown passes in his final seven postseason games, all of which the Steelers scored 27+ points. He averaged an incredible 8.4 yards per pass attempt throughout his playoff career.

Bradshaw may have been only slightly above average in the regular season, but in the postseason, his success was topped by only two men.

(insert Good Will Hunting quote)
