Steelers win, and the best part of the night is this:
Fans chanted “Terry, Terry, Terry” as Bradshaw accepted his No. 12 Steelers jersey from team president Dan Rooney and vice president Art Rooney II.
“It’s good to be home,” said Bradshaw, who was accompanied on the field by his two daughters.
Bradshaw, who led the Steelers to four Super Bowl championships, felt slighted after retiring and he occasionally made critical comments about former coach Chuck Noll. He felt so estranged from the Steelers he didn’t attend the funeral of team founder Art Rooney in 1988.
But Bradshaw, apparently moved by the death of Hall of Fame center Mike Webster last month, said he was wrong to have stayed detached from the Steelers. He also said he greatly exaggerated any talk of a strained relationship with Noll, and that he has no problems with the way Noll treated him during his 14-year career.
Bradshaw and Noll hugged during Webster’s funeral, and Bradshaw — now a Fox Sports NFL commentator — said he is now determined to stay close to his former teammates and the Steelers organization.
Welcome back, Terry. You left me, but I am happy to have you back in the family.
