Terry Paxton Bradshaw (born September 2, 1948) is a former American football quarterback of the National Football League (NFL). Since 1994, he has been a TV analyst and co-host of Fox NFL Sunday. He played for 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers…..won four Super Bowl titles in a six-year period (1974, 1975, 1978, and 1979)….becoming the first quarterback to win three and four Super Bowls….while leading the Steelers to eight AFC Central championships. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989, his first year of eligibility.  A tough competitor, Bradshaw had a powerful arm and called his own plays throughout his football career.  His physical skills and on-the-field leadership played a major role in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ history.
