Things may get a little awkward the next time Hall of Famer and Pittsburgh Steelers legend Terry Bradshaw is around the team. Bradshaw, it seems, is not a fan of Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.
Appearing on Fox Sports 1’s “Speak for Yourself” on Friday, Bradshaw denigrated Tomlin, calling him “a great cheerleader guy.”
“I don’t think he’s a great coach at all,” Bradshaw said when the topic of Tomlin being one of the NFL’s elite coaches came up. “He’s a nice coach. To me, I’ve said this, he’s really a great cheerleader guy. I don’t know what he does. I don’t think he is a great coach at all. His name never even pops in my mind when we think about great coaches in the NFL.”
Bradshaw said he considered the man who preceded Tomlin in Pittsburgh, Bill Cowher, to be great.
For the record, with Pittsburgh on a five-game winning streak heading into Sunday’s game with the Baltimore Ravens, Tomlin has his team in position to be in the playoffs for the seventh time in his 10 years. He has never had a sub-.500 record (his overall mark is 101-57, or .639), won Super Bowl XLIII and brought the Steelers the AFC championship in the 2010 season.
In his 15 years as Steelers head coach, Cowher was 149-90-1 (.623), with 10 playoff appearances, two AFC championships and one Super Bowl championship. He had three seasons under .500.
