Terry Bradshaw is a very popular man in the media as a NFL pre-game analyst on Fox Sports. Media personnel try to do their best to be impartial to players and teams so as to give fair and accurate news on any player / team.
Terry Bradshaw normally does a great job of this, EXCEPT when it comes to Ben Roethlisberger.Bradshaw, who has made his feelings for Ben CLEARLY known, talked about Ben’s meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goddell:
“Going to bars — treating women like that; oh my God, I pray they don’t cut (his NFL suspension) to four games. I hope they leave it at six. There is no excuse for that. The egos get out of hand.”
Bradshaw also had this to say:
“He has got to realize who he is, He is an elite athlete in the National Football League. He’s got an image problem right now. Best thing to do is never put yourself in that position again.”
I’m not here to say what Ben did or did not do, but Bradshaw is right in what he has been saying. Roethlisberger has to do a better job of being THE quarterback for one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. Any more mistakes, and Roethlisberger could find himself getting “Santonio’ed.”
Roethlisberger’s suspension was cut from potentially six games to four games.
