    This is great to see past and present QBs. It would be so cool if Bradshaw made a cameo.

    The crazy question I would like to ask is when do college QBs start throwing an NFL sized ball? Kenny admitted to buying a hand stretcher to prepare himself for the NFL combine, so I would think his people would have had him practicing with an NFL ball as soon as the college season ended.

    Good question. I'm sure he started using one after the ACC Championship game when he began his training for the combine.

    Howard Cossell once told TB in an interview that TB just wasn't very smart. TB answered "Damn Howard, I won four Super Bowls, just how smart do you have to be?"

    Yeah Bradshaw has his schtick of being the big, dumb old country bumpkin but Chuck Noll trusted him with calling all of the plays during his career. He can't be too stupid with 4 rings from not only his play but also his play calling.

    It's interesting that Roger Staubach graduated from the Naval Academy and did not get to call his own plays and lost to Bradshaw twice.

    I'd imagine this is going to blow up the sports internet today. I've already seen one show talking about it and putting words in Ben's mouth.

    I think one of the best stories of someone claiming Bradshaw was not very smart was in SB XIII against Dallas when Cliff Harris and Charlie Waters switched spots on defense thinking they were going to fool Bradshaw. Bradshaw said he read blitz and changed the play to give Franco the ball for a 22-yard TD run. An interview after the game Cliff Harris said it wasn't a blitz and said Bradshaw was too stupid to think it was a blitz. Now in IMO Bradshaw was obviously very smart because to make the call which resulted in a TD. How stupid Cliff Harris was to be calling out Bradshaw in which he got burned on.

    Too much is gonna be made out of what Ben said, but give him credit he said it right to Kenny Pickett's face, wasn't like it was hiding it.
    ( And Ben said that, even before he spoke about it)

    But, throw yourself in Ben's shoes like if you feel like you can really play still, but the team is moving on, would you want to see the guy who replaced you absolutely tear it up, , then it be like Boy the were right about me. Maybe I didn't have it anymore.

    Have your work place say to you hey you don't have it anymore your out here... would you really want to see the next person come in and do a better job than you were doing, I don't think one person would say yes.

    Give him credit he had Kenny come on the show, and not like he had to say yes about Kenny coming on it, I am sure he has the say who comes and who doesn't. If he didn't like or care for Kenny I don't think he have them on the show.

    But even if Kenny came in and had huge success I don't think the Steelers fans are gonna forget about Big Ben....

    In one of the America's Game videos, that was the same play that Franco told Bradshaw to give him the ball because there was a cheap shot attempt by the Cowboys on the previous play. Bradshaw may have just wanted credit for the play call.

    Two things jumped out at me from this

    First his selfish me first attitude but that has always been Ben

    Secondly he thought he still had it in him to play he didn’t have it the last 1 1/2 years he playef

    An honest admission of being like most anyone else in that position. In the past he did not gloat when KP threw a pick on his first NFL throw, instead on a pod cast said he texted him and said he did the same thing. I have no idea the depth of his feelings, but I seriously doubt it was as big a deal as many want to make it. He told the kid I was kind of hoping you would stink, then when you started connecting I was running all around the basement high fiving and shouting.

    I think its more humanizing to admit to something that everyone experiences. It's like secretly enjoying when your ex girlfriend's new man that she swears is so awesome turns out to be a lying cheating bastard.
