Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long and Michael Strahan have been working on the Fox NFL Sunday Pre-Game Show together for years.
Their knowledge of the game is second to none, and the three Pro Football Hall of Famers effortlessly joke about the stories of the day and entertain football fans every Sunday during the season.
Terry Bradshaw made an unforgettable impact in the most memorable of NFL seasons on the final Sunday of the regular season when he gave a comparison to the Baltimore Ravens, surprisingly accusing his two Fox teammates during their playing days of using steroids.
The 2020 season for the Baltimore Ravens had its ups and downs.
Terry Bradshaw, the legend of the Steelers, was once quite candid about the condition of his brain: “It’s not really in good shape.”
The Baltimore Ravens began the 2020 NFL season with a pair of wins and then suffered their first home loss in late September, 34-20, to the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
But in 2020, the game on the field was just part of the story.
The NFL was devastated all season by a worldwide pandemic, and the Ravens were one of several teams significantly affected.
From Nov. 23 to Dec. 2, including reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson, who tested positive on Thanksgiving, the team put a total of 23 players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The team’s outbreak caused the Ravens’ games to be postponed several times against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys.
During the outbreak, the team lost several games in a row, but managed to win four straight games and reach the regular season’s final game with a 10-5 record.

How life after the NFL forced Terry Bradshaw to deal with both his mental disorder and his disability to learn
Terry Bradshaw had the job of speaking about the Baltimore Ravens in the final week of the 2020 NFL regular season and how dangerous the team is in the postseason.
But he had made some fascinating analogies before he talked about the Ravens, including one that shockingly threw Howie Long and Michael Strahan under a bus.
Bradshaw began, “There are some things in life you just don’t want to face.” “Number one, with Jimmy Johnson, I don’t want to go fishing, and Jimmy Johnson takes off his shirt.” I don’t want to see Howie taking those steroids while Howie and Michael had juice.
Whoa!-Whoa! Whoa!-Whoa! Whoa!-Whoa! In the background, Fox NFL Sunday host Curt Menefee yelled quickly from the camera.
The cameras flashed to Long, who chuckled at that, followed by Strahan, who was trying to do the same. However, the toothless grin of the former New York Giants superstar defensive lineman was less persuasive, and clearly showed that he did not expect those remarks.
Bradshaw attempted to continue his tirade, but he was interrupted by Long.
Wait, wait, wait! Hey, wait! “Interjected the former Raiders star.
“I am not done yet. I’m not done yet,’ rumbled Bradshaw on.
Long shot back, “You’re confusing us with the team you played with.” “That’s correct!” ” In the background, Strahan could be heard.
“Bradshaw added, “I don’t want to see those guys coming at me. I don’t want a divorce lawyer knocking on my door.”
And you don’t want to see the Ravens if you’re in the NFL, because no team would be tougher to win if they beat Cincinnati today.
Terry Bradshaw apologizes for commenting on steroids, then makes shocking remarks about Mitch Trubisky.
Update: The career passer rating of Mitch Trubisky has risen to 87.4, still No. 1 in Bears history (min. 10 starts as QB). His passer rating for 2020 is 95.3.
That’s 0.1 behind his 2018 mark, which was the highest in franchise history (min. 10 begins).-Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) December 28, 2020Terry Bradshaw went off the script later in the show and apologised for his previous remarks to both Howie Long and Michael Strahan, which he admitted missed their mark.
I still try to be funny on this show and show viewers a good time before we go any further with it,” Bradshaw said with a much more serious demeanor. “I was talking to two guys I love about steroids today.
And I just want America to know I’m sorry for that. I wish that I hadn’t done that. I feel bad that I said that because I don’t know any of you have done that and I just feel better that I’ve said it to our audience. So, that’s enough.
Bradshaw reflected on Chicago quarterback Mitchell Trubisky shortly after his apology, and how impressed he was.
