    Big Ben Rothlisberger is the greatest qb to ever play for Pittsburgh yet his teammates can't support him. Yes I know Terry Bradshaw won 4 super bowls but he played on all star teams from the top to
    the bottom on both sides of the ball similar to Joe Montana for San Francisco. Rothlisberger is a way better qb than Bradshaw ever was and I like Terry Bradshaw. Yet his teammates can't support the quarterback
    who has been the true teams m.v.p. for over a decade now.

    Brady definitely can't throw the deep ball accurately anymore. But never count him out, even at 43.

    Tom Brady is 0-for-19 on pass attempts to travel 20-plus yards in the air over the past month.

    Bradshaw was actually the weak link on the first two Super Bowl champion Steelers teams. Then he finally blossomed (it took him a lot longer than any White QB would be given today) and was the strength of the team when they won their third and fourth Super Bowls. I agree that Roethlisberger is a better QB, but sadly he has never been given the credit he deserves, not from his teammates, not from the media and not from the DWFs. Up until a few years ago the DWFs constantly blamed Big Ben anytime something went wrong and were clamoring for a new (black) quarterback. Big Ben may be the most under-rated quarterback ever and he's going as strong as ever this season at the age of 38.

    Troy Apke played all 68 snaps on defense for Washington on Sunday against the Bungles.

    Terry Bradshaw didn't become one of the best QBs in the league until 1975, his sixth year. The Steelers beat the Cowboys in Super Bowl X that year. Bradshaw threw what proved to be the winning TD in the game, despite being knocked out on the play by Larry Cole. The Cowboy defense held Franco Harris to three yards a carry.

    Harris had been considered the key to the Steelers' offense during their Super Bowl run in 1974 and also in 1975. Franco leveled off while Bradshaw came on big in 1978-79, being MVP in Super Bowls XIII and XIV.

    Tom Brady is catching heat for not shaking Jared Goff's hand after the game Monday night. He also did not shake Nick Foles hand either this year or after the super bowl loss. He is being called a sore loser on both social media and certain talk shows, experts such as Shannon Sharpe. He said it was time to tell it like it was and call his a## out on it.
