I think Tommy needs to make a call to the insurance agency he worked for in Texas, because his career as an NFL qb is done.

I couldn't get over how terrible he played. Everytime a timeout and new series I was praying that Cowher would throw Batch in, but he never did. I cannot believe Cowher left him in there so long. I've never seen someone so single handly ruin a game. The blame goes to Cowher as well. Blows my mind that he left him in there.

Well, Neil O'Donnell comes in a close second. Maybe gets bonus bonehead points for ruining a Superbowl, but in this game Tommy really blew it. It's actually hard to believe an NFL-caliber QB can play that poorly, especially when the game was won. All they had to do was run forward twice. They didn't even have to get any yards.

Very true. Neil is definitely close. But wow! At one point he threw a ball into what 3 or 4 defenders? What was he looking at! Everytime he threw the ball I was nervous.

I would assume his thinking was that Maddox was improving his play as the second half came to a close. Maddox did the no-huddle effectively so by trying it again in overtime would pay off as well. Then... well, we all know what happened.

I think we can all rest easy now knowing Cowher won't ever make the mistake again of turning to Maddox.

Guess I was wrong about Maddox. I thought Batch would screw up like Maddox did. Guess I was wrong.

I know I'l get stoned for this comment... I still like Maddox as a QB. Yet after a horrible performance with O'Donnell like mistakes, my respect for Maddox has fallen greatly.

Someone fix Maddoz's arm. Horrible aiming. Huge mistakes. Glad I missed the end of the game, because 'd be twice as furious!

i always knew that season maddox had was a fluke the last few years have proved that, last year we wouldn't have come close to going 15 and 1 with him throwing the ball. he's another kurt warner without the fluke mvps and ring.
