Ben Roethlisberger is scheduled to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday, hoping to get his six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy shortened to four games.
A voice we’ve become accustomed to hearing on matters involving Roethlisberger — Steelers Hall of Fame QB Terry Bradshaw — didn’t disappoint this time around, either. The outspoken Bradshaw hopes Roethlisberger doesn’t get off the hook with a shorter suspension.
“Going to bars — treating women like that; oh my God,” Bradshaw said, according to The Shreveport Times. “I pray they don’t cut (his NFL suspension) to four games. I hope they leave it at six. There is no excuse for that. The egos get out of hand.”
Appearing as a speaker at a luncheon on Wednesday, Bradshaw’s wrath extended beyond Roethlisberger. Among others, Bradshaw took shots at Brett Favre (drama queen), Adam Jones (rain-maker) and even Rex Ryan (shoots his mouth but doesn’t play). One player who escaped Bradshaw’s ire, though, was Drew Brees.
“He’s Joe Montana — the perfect height and poised beyond his size,” Bradshaw said. “He’s a great guy. He’s stayed the same.”
