i think maddox put his own ambitions above the welfare of the team. batch wouldve been a better HEALTHY start. he looked like a sloth and had no zip on his passes whatsoever.

Never once did I say I was happy with Tommy starting this week, but I never thought he'd throw the game like this! I expected a pick at least, but 3, and there were 3 more that the Jax Defense should have had. I mean, come on. Trade him for a 4-5 round pick, please? Hopefully we can get even that. Like I've said, there are Steelers, and then there are people who play for the Steelers. Maddox, like Plaxico, is one of the latter.

I was talking to prosdo about this too alittle bit ago.. why in the hell would start a guy who isnt healthy when you have a healthy guy right there, ready to go !

The playing time Tommy has had since he lost the starting job, he has not produced at all..he's not seeing the field, he's missing underneath LB's and DB's..its just ridiculous!

his game in buffalo last year was horrible. steelers won despite his play. i posted earlier this week why we shouldnt worry with batch starting (mobility, health, and fire inside). i knew maddox would struggle but a fumble when all they had to do was kick a fg? then looking worse than odonnell in a sb???? unbelievable. oh well, i guess 14-2 isnt all that bad.

right on, that's the main thing I was talking about, that buffalo game and also the giants game when ben got hurt.. its terrible. I was really pulling for batch to get in there...even in preseason Tommy didnt show anybody anything, and batch played well.

Im so pissed off right now at cowher for not yanking him its not funny..

i'm actually not all that pissed with this game, cause this is what i was expecting maddox to do, he freakin sucks, and cowher sucks he chokes in clutch times of games with his play calling and keeping maddox in there was stupid, we should've put bettis in to pound the ball a little in ot and then kick the field goal cause we was in reeds range. damn you cowher and damn you maddox for still being alive. hopefully ben will be able to go next sunday cause if not maddox will throw 9 ints and the bengal hoes will be on here gloating like a mother f......

I expected him to struggle, but I also expected him to play w/ in the team and use his supporting cast. Not throw the ball away, take sacks, fumble, throw picks all day and basically take 2 steps back everytime we take 1 forward!!

What was I thinking !!

Okay I have a few gripes about this game. 1. Why did Cowher leave Maddox in there so long? It was quite obvisious by the first quarter that he wasn't going to do anything. Why not start Batch in the second half? 2. Quincy Morgan's 74 yard return put us at Jacksonville's 26 yard line. Why not just kick it there. Jeff is solid from there.
