Terry Bradshaw: 'I Pray' NFL Ben Roethlisberger's Suspension Is Not Reduced

Ben Roethlisberger and Roger Goodell plan to meet Friday to decide how many weeks the quarterback will miss due to suspension, though at least one former quarterback is hoping that Roethlisberger is forced to endure the full six-week suspension.

Terry Bradshaw, a two-time Super Bowl MVP and NFL Hall of Famer, told a group of people attending the AdvoCare Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon at Shreveport Country Club in Louisiana that he prays Roethlisberger isn’t given any leeway.

“Going to bars — treating women like that; oh my God,” Bradshaw said. “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.”

Bradshaw has a bit of a history going on record regarding Roethlisberger, but he seemed to be grinding an axe with all current NFL players at this meeting rather than focusing on Roethlisberger as he also brought up Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Adam “Pacman” Jones during the luncheon.
