|Terry Bradshaw on Sports Illustrated|
Terry Bradshaw from Louisiana Tech was athletic and strong-armed—so much so that on sheer ability he eclipsed all rivals. Bradshaw’s development would take time and patience. While the media depicted Bradshaw as a slow country boy, Noll thought otherwise. But Bradshaw’s development was slowed by criticism that he took to heart. Noll remained confident in Bradshaw, but the coach could often be seen forcefully “instructing” the young man when he performed poorly. Similar to other great quarterback-coach relationships, the Bradshaw-Noll tandem had its share of difficult times while producing Hall of Fame results.
Bradshaw led the Steelers to four Super Bowls.
