Number 12 - Terry Bradshaw


Terry Bradshaw is the best athlete to wear number 12.  This Hall of Famer led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a record four Super Bowls within six years, and eight AFC central championships. Here are some key Terry Bradshaw stats:


  • 1978 NFL MVP
  • Four-time Super Bowl Champion
  • Three-time All-Pro
  • Super Bowl XIII and XIV MVP
  • Passed for 932 yards and 9 touchdowns in four Super Bowls


Did you know......Terry Bradshaw signed a contract in 2006 to be the fourth string quarterback of the Daytona Beach Thunder of the American Indoor Football League?

    1. Stockton gets the nod as the best NBA athlete to wear number 12. And there may not have ever been a better point guard!

    Yeah but Tom Brady had help...you know, from a spy camera that let him know the defense plays before hand. It's not his fault though. And what about Staubach?

    Tom Brady will be forever tainted now because of the "spy camera". Plain and simple, they cheated! Carve it up how you like...cheating is cheating!

    I'm even a huge steeler fan but John Stocktons stats simply can't be matched over his span of playing all time leader in assists as well as steals.

    You spygate idiots should just look at Bradys stats after that first game. Your excuses are lame or is it jealousy.

    Jee, Tom Brady is only going to go down in history as the best quarterback to ever play the game...but apparently that's not good enough to beat Terry "Just don't blow the game for us" Bradshaw.

    The Patriots got caught cheating! No amount of personal emotion or feelings can change that. Just because you may be a loyal fan of them does NOT mean what they did wasn't wrong! There is only one reason that you would cheat. And I was a Patriot fan. The fair and square appears to have been taken out of sports. It's a shame. And for all of the fans who were born before 1970, you know what I'm talking about!

  19. Tom Brady is only behind Montana (probably not for long) in NFL history, so he is way better than Bradshaw

    You know, I was just thinking; another thing that puts Bradshaw ahead of Brady is, there were no rules to protect the QB when he played. There was no sissy in the grasp, or punk ass slide rule. Those muthaFletchin quarterbacks got their clocks cleaned!! FOR REAL. Bradshaw routinely got up afterward and threw a bomb sometimes for a TD. Without crying at that. I don't care who you are, YOU know how much brady cries.

  21. Brady= best quarterback ever. Can you say clutch. I think he has only lost 4 times in the playoffs not to mention coming in as a second year backup qb to win a superbowl with a mediocre team. After he wins 2 or 3 more he will not only have this #12 spot locked up bt also best qb ever. Anthis spygate crap has to end...

    And once again, here is somebody who, just because they are a patriots fan, they can't see, hear, smell, touch or taste cheating. brady is a beneficiary of a system that has been caught and PROVEN to have been cheating. And why would someone cheat? to have an unfair advantage over an opponent. This guy is simply not as good as the cheating scheme made him look!

    GOtta be Roger Staubach. Bradshaw was the Ben Roethlisberger of his time: a solid QB who was lucky enough to have a great defense and a good offensive line.

    Staubach WAS his team.

  24. Tom Brady may have 3 super bowls... Terry Bradshaw has 4... very good choice

    12 is to NFL quarterbacks what 9 is to hockey... so many greats wore 12... Bradshaw, Staubach, Griese, and soon to be Brady

    ReplyDelete
  25. good offensive line? Roethisberger was sacked more times than any other quarterback in the league this year... he had to improv the entire game winning drive that won the SB for Pittsburgh this year... good offensive line? not a chance...

    but I will agree with you on the renaissance of the Steel Curtain in our era.. that's one heck of a D

    Bradshaw had a terrible QB rating. I say Roger Staubach as the underdog here, merely because of my bias against Brady and the Patriots. I think players that do a little worse with bad teams deserve more acknowledgement than the slightly better player on an elite team (Troy Aikman vs. Steve Young). Staubach beats Bradshaw in averages and ratings just like Young does with Aikman

    A lot has to be said about Staubach. He played in started 5 and won 2 super bowels and was only a starter for 9 seasons one of which (1972)He did not play in because of injury. He also helped to redefine the Quarterback position and was the first dual threat at the QB position. He was never ranked lower than 7th in passing yards and was never lower than 10th in passing touchdowns. He led the league in QB rating 4 times in those 9 (really 8)seasons and has 20 rushing touchdowns to go with the 153 he put up through the air. Only 2 of the seasons he played were in the current 16 game format the rest of them were 14 games. Obviously the three Quarter backs that have been mentioned are either hall of fame or a future hall of fame players but for me I lean towards Staubach. Though this post is full of stats I am usually the first to say stats are not everything, but it is the way that the game was played by a given athlete that should also be taken into account. For you Patriot fans out there, why don't you go look up what Mr. Belichick thinks about Roger Staubach, for those that do not know Bill's Father Steve was a coach and scout for Navy during Staubach's time there and he has always had glowing things to say about the way the dodger played. I am actually surprised more has not been said about Roger here. Go to youtube and look at some of his highlights. There is a reason that The cowboys were and still are known as America's team despite the groaning of many fans from more successful teams recently (was given to the team because of its then and still strong national following). The lasting impression of that name with the cowboys is due in large part to the cowboys of the 70's and as mentioned previously in another post, Roger was the heart and soul of that team. Brady may wear 12 becuase of Bradshaw but the way he throws the ball and the benefit he now enjoys of a much more pass happy NFL are much more comparable to and because of Staubach. As a closing note to some people who may not be old enough to remember (which I am not) or are not cowboys fans. Staubach instead of waving to the crowd when introduced at midfield of the hall of fame game in 1985 cocked and fired a 50 yard strike to the games ball boy in the endzone. The man is the definition of quarter back and is the definition of the number 12.

    Deffinately Staubach, for all the reasons stated above. He was also a winner. No one was better with the clock winding down and the game on the line. His numbers dwarf Bradshaw's. He came with-in a dropped pass in the end-zone of winning one of those games against Bradshaw. Lynn Swan made catches in two of those Super Bowls that no Human Being had any Business catching. Staubach retired with the highest passer rating in history. To me this is a no brainer.

    I recently heard Mike Ditka say that Staubach was the greatest leader who he'd ever played for. So there's that in addition to the other stuff already stated.

    And Staubach spent his first four years after college in the navy, some of it in Viet Nam. What he acomplished after coming back is similar to what Ali did afeter u

    Every team in the NFL Spygates. Every single team has at least one scout that shows up for the other teams practices and takes notes to bring back to his team. Everyone needs to put the Patriots "cheating" to rest when every team does it... Plus I see the Steelers go to the Super Bowl like every other year... Why don't they go every year? Oh yeah because they have to make it seem like they aren't cheating by taking a season off from being "Champions". More like Cheatpions.

    Brady is better than Bradshaw. What were the Steelers known for when they won those Super Bowls: DEFENSE. What are the Patriots now known for: OFFENSE. Steelers then would prob beat Patrios of today, but we're judging individuals...Brady is better than Bradshaw.

  34. As much as I choke on admitting it (I HATE the Patriots and Bill Belichick), Tom Brady is the best to wear #12. I loved Bradshaw and think he represents the opposite of all the crap that the modern Patriots stand for, but one has to be fair in these things and he was nowhere near the QB that Brady's been. Bradshaw would barely be in the top five of #12 QB's. After Brady, the next in line would be: Jim Kelly, Bob Griese, Roger Staubach, and then Joe Namath and Bradshaw would be a toss-up for fifth.

    Heck, I like Terry Bradshaw WAY more than Tom Brady. But even I have to admit Brady belongs as the best No. 12. One could also make a strong argument for Roger Staubach, but it has to be Brady.
