One of two legendary Pittsburgh Steelers quarterbacks is backing up the other. Terry Bradshaw defended Ben Roethlisberger’s leadership this week when asked about the current QB.
The biggest debate in Steelers history may still be whether or not Ben Roethlisberger has surpassed Terry Bradshaw. The two are clearly the most legendary passers to play in the Steel City, and despite being constantly compared, they don’t have many negative things to say about the other.
Bradshaw, being interviewed by TMZ, was asked about the biggest controversy in Pittsburgh – Ben Roethlisberger’s leadership. Like many of Ben’s current teammates, Bradshaw had nothing but praise for the quarterback.
"“He’s a great leader. He is. He’s solid.”"
Bradshaw was also asked about Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. The two seemed to have started all the drama surrounding the Steelers, but not many still understand why. Most players stick to the basic answers of not knowing what the relationship between the two parties are. Bradshaw stuck to the course when answering about the two former Steelers.
"“That’s their opinion, you know? That’s their opinion. I’m not there. I’m not in that locker room. I can’t answer that. I don’t know. But I find him to be fine, I don’t understand it.”"
It appears people are having more and more of a difficult time understanding where the harsh remarks are coming from. The whole Josh Harris situation has since passed, but players and media do take into consideration what Antonio Brown said when leaving Pittsburgh. Although Bell didn’t mention Ben much, he has stuck with Brown during his exit.
Right now, the question is fading, but the more people that get asked the fewer people believe Roethlisberger is doing anything wrong. Maybe he and Brown didn’t get a long like many thought, but the current locker room is a fan of his and that’s what matters.
AB and Bell aren’t Steelers anymore. Josh Harris was barely a Steeler. At this point, there isn’t anyone in the locker room who poses a problem with Ben’s leadership and that should be the end of the discussion.
