Terry Bradshaw is one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL as he orchestrated 4 of the Steelers’ 6 Super Bowl wins and tallied 2 Super Bowl MVPs.
His legacy may last forever, but despite his success on the field, Bradshaw recently revealed that an aspect related to how he was viewed by the public is something he wishes was different during his playing career.
“If there’s one thing in my life I do wish I had,” Bradshaw explained. “And I’ll say this… I wish I was loved and respected… And I understand, I know I don’t deserve this, I just wish I had it. Like [Tom] Brady, and like Peyton [Manning], Roger Staubach. But when I sit back in my life as a football player, I never had that kind of respect,” Bradshaw continued. “And I wish I did. I really do wish I did.”
