Terry Bradshaw Admits He Shouldn’t Have Called Mike Tomlin a ‘Cheerleader’

Terry Bradshaw doesn’t regret describing Steelers coach Mike Tomlin as a “cheerleader.” But he admits he should have used a different word, Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News reports.

The Steelers legend kind-of, sort-of walked back his controversial comments about the Super Bowl-winning Tomlin on Thursday’s episode of “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.”

Appearing with “Fox NFL Sunday” colleague Howie Long, Bradshaw admitted: “I probably shouldn’t have said cheerleader.”

Bradshaw also called Tomlin a “stand-up guy.”

At the same time, Bradshaw thought Tomlin made a mistake responding to his comments. TV sports analysts like himself are supposed to have strong opinions.

Similarly, Bradshaw thought victorious Clemson coach Dabo Swinney should not have gone after Cowherd for calling the Tigers a “fraud” earlier this season.

“Mike (Tomlin) came back at me — which he should have never done,” Bradshaw said. “It’s like Dabo. Don’t let people know that you get to them. Just blow it off.”
