Default Overtime QB

I was talking with a few friends after the game about the QB in overtime. Do you think they made a good call by leaving Maddox in or should they have brought Ben or Randle El in?

For a change of pace, why not have started El or Ben.??? Sounds good to me!! Maybe El because of his moves could have generated some much needed yards against a tired defense.. I would have liked to see Ben in there , but if he'd have gotten hurt, it would have been bad news since he's close to being completely healed up and should be ready this coming weekend.

Its obvious nothing was working all day on offense w/ the exception of the 1 drive for the TD. I mean NOTHING!

What I really wanted to see is EL get a series. Let him play an entire series for one reason. Script all the plays for him to roll and RUN....nothing else. Bring Tommy back in.....let him do his thing (hold on to it and get sacked) then a few series later bring EL back in and let him be a QB (look down field)......the D would have been focused on him scrambling and I feel someone would have been left open. Cowher was playing way too much of "not to loose" rather than "to win".

most definately... and its nothing new either..it was a close game and taking a chance at the right time and actually trying to air it out w/ a calcuated big play option just wasnt happening today.

Unfortunately, Cowher made the right move by keeping Maddox in there. You can't have ARE behind center for the OT.

The only reason it was a good idea for Turnover Tommy to be in there would be to let Ben heal and not have a chance to get hurt again. We are going to need him down the stretch.

Well, I was in favor of throwing Antwaan in there. And after seeing what happened in OT, it should've happened. Just have Antwaa drop back, look at the #1 and #2 receiver and either throw it or run. No sacks, no fumbles, we would've been fine.

I would of liked to see Ben in for a little bit just to get back into the swing of things before next week.

I voted Ben because I knew he could lead us into FG range to win the game.

And I don't blame Cowher for playing "not to lose" because I don't trust Maddox.
