Bradshaw and Boley, both admittedly avid gamers, took part in a Pros vs. GI Joes event in Times Square on Monday night, and talked about their building excitement for Black Ops II (which we will have a full review for later this week).
Post Game Report: So, who’s the better Call of Duty player?
Boley: Well right now, I’d have to say I’m the better player. I haven’t really seen Ahmad play yet so, I’m going have to give myself that one.
Bradshaw: My game speaks for itself. I just get on and play.
PGR: Do you guys play while travelling on the road?
Bradshaw: We do play games on the road. Last year when the game came out I think we were in Philly so I played there. It was awesome.
Boley: Some people bring their systems on the road, I know I do.

PGR: With you guys on a bye week, would you say this is perfect timing for the game to be released?
Boley: Excellent timing. For us it works out every year that the game comes out on Tuesday and that’s our day off during the week. I’m usually up every Monday night early into Tuesday morning. Get the game at midnight and stay up all night.
PGR: Do any other players on the team game with you guys?
Bradshaw: It’s only really been us two for the past couple of years.
Boley: Zac [DeOssie] plays from time to time.
PGR: Call of Duty: Black Ops II brings back one of the most popular modes from the original. Do you guys dabble in Zombies at all?
Bradshaw: [Zombies] is tough to play. It’s real tough man.
Boley: I haven’t really played Zombies since World at War. I try to play, but it just wasn’t the same.
PGR: Do you play to relax? Vent after a tough loss or day?
Bradshaw: I guess it could be used for that. I use it to relax a little, get off my feet for a while, kick up, have fun.
Boley: I’m a gamer, so it definitely relaxes me.
PGR: On the other end of the spectrum, have you ever had one of those controller-smashing freakouts that gamers are all too familiar with?
Boley: I haven’t smashed any yet, I’ve come close. There are some of those games where you’re playing against a team that’s really killing you, it’s frustrating.
PGR: Do you guys play with friends? Online?
Bradshaw: I’m more of a Playstation guy. I got the game early, but if I can get some friends [on], I think I’m going to like it and just play. I like it, I like the graphics and the game itself.
Boley: I have a bunch of friends. When I got on Xbox, it was when Halo 3 came out. That’s how I met a lot of my friends and we transferred over to Call of Duty and we’ve expanded our clan so I have quite a few friends. Most of them, I have never met them, but we’ve been playing together for four years.
PGR: Play against any other NFL players?
Bradshaw: I played against a couple of Patriots. Gronkowski in California, I played Brandon Spikes, we played a lot when we trained in Miami.
Boley: I haven’t really played with many other players throughout the league.
PGR: What other games do you play? Any Madden seeing as you’re both football players?
Boley: I buy Madden every year, but I don’t play it. They take it so far, so many buttons for everything, you have to press this button to hold onto the ball, this button to juke. I try to play other games but because of my friends, I just keep coming back to Call of Duty.
Bradshaw: I play a lot of that too. Call of Duty just stays in my system until I see an invite from Madden and I’m like, ok let me throw the Madden in every now and then, but Call of Duty stays in.
PGR: How do you think you’ll fare tonight against the GI Joes?
Boley: I think we’re going to do pretty good. It should be fun.
Bradshaw: It’ll be a good challenge.
