NFL fans worry about Terry Bradshaw as an analyst struggling through an “agonizing” live segment
LEGENDARY broadcaster Terry Bradshaw led the Philadelphia Eagles in their NFC title celebrations – but not everyone was impressed.
The four-time Super Bowl winner, 74, presented Philly with the George Halas trophy after their 31-7 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
Bradshaw hosted FOX Sports’ “NFL on Sunday” during the big game at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles dominated the 49ers early on, knocking out quarterback Brock Purdy with an early injury.
They ran in four rushing touchdowns as they booked their Super Bowl seat for the first time since 2017.
Bradshaw was tasked with presenting the NFC trophy to the Eagles following their triumph on home soil.
But his presenting skills divided opinion among the millions of football fans watching on TV.
The ex-Steelers legend started the ceremony by encouraging defenseman Brian Dawkins to present the trophy to Eagles CEO Jeffrey Lurie.
Bradshaw was called out by some for almost saying “Super Bowl trophy” instead of “Halas trophy.”
While he called a number of Eagles linemen “ugly”.
Bradshaw led an awkward singalong with quarterback Jalen Hurts of Philly’s anthem “Fly, Eagles, Fly” – which one fan described as “excruciating”.
Another said: “[That] was the worst 3 minutes of TV I’ve ever watched.”
While a third added: “I know you guys love Terry Bradshaw and all… But he doesn’t have to be on the podium during the trophy presentation anymore.”
And a fourth said: “Terry Bradshaw should not have done the trophy presentation. It was absolutely horrifying to watch.”
But there were plenty of fans who enjoyed the ceremony – and gave Bradshaw props for taking the stage despite his long-term health issues.
One said: “I actually thought Terry Bradshaw was really funny… He was just messing around.”
While a second added: “Terry Bradshaw seems more excited than everyone else on stage…love it!”
And one Eagles fan laughed, “Jalen Hurt singing the Eagles fight song is the best and worst thing I’ve ever heard.”
Bradshaw recently opened up about his health issues and has been battling two types of cancer over the past eighteen months.
A rare form of skin cancer on his neck required surgery, which has left him speechless.
But the 1978 NFL MVP is confident he can stay in the analyst’s chair for quite some time.
He said in October: “It took me a long time to tell my family [about the cancer].
“I’m cancer free. I feel great.
“And in time, I’ll be back to where I normally am.”
