Terry Bradshaw wants you to know he shouldn't have said that thing that he said.
Bradshaw, in a move that led to a loud chorus of, "Wait, what?" from the football cognescenti, came after Tomlin pretty good on the FS1 program Speak For Yourself last month, telling co-host Jason Whitlock that Tomlin "never even pops in (his) mind when we think about great coaches." But it was Bradshaw's assertion that Tomlin was a glorified cheerleader that caught fire and led Tomlin to publicly respond.
The Steelers coach called Bradshaw's "cheerleader" comment over the line and disrespectful, before returning fire with a nice Hollywood Henderson dig. Bradshaw believes Tomlin was in the wrong for that.
"Mike came back at me -- which he should have never done," Bradshaw said.
Terry. You called a Super Bowl-winning coach -- a Super Bowl-winning coach for yourSteelers -- a cheerleader. You said you have no idea what he does. You begged for a clap back. Don't act surprised you got it.
