I don't see how he has any chance to remain with the team. The two games speak for themselves: we can't win with Tommy Maddox. We can with Batch, but not Tommy. Time to find a replacement.

What I don't understand is how we won with him a couple years ago. He was more accurate than lately, but he was still not a mobile QB. Was the O line better then, who knows.

I think Maddox had success when he did because he hadn't played at all as a starter until that point and opposing teams were still figuring him out.

Along with that I don't think he's ever been the same since that Tennessee game where he was carted off the field.

Let's just say there will be one more place to get a car insurance quote in Pittsburgh next year...

Steelers can cut Maddox after this year without taking a major salary cap hit on the signing bonus he received several years ago and no team will pick him up since he can no longer play.

Assuming Ben comes back next week, Batch will heal up after Indy and Tommy Gun has taken his last snap in teh NFL.

I agree! Keith Bulluck knocked all the football sense out of him!

Unhappy Re: Has Maddox sealed his fate for next year?

i was really happy to see batch play then when he got hurt i hoped they would put anybody in accept maddox . yes he was good a couple of years ago but since then nothing
no help what so ever he is a pocket passer but cannot pass . i strongly believe the steelers should only have one loss this year to the pats otherwise both overtime games we shouldve won . we had chances to win both of them in my opinion they shouldnt have went to overtime if we have to rely on a backup like maddox we need to put randle el in instead

steelers fan in raven country come on guys

Truthfully,I don't think Maddox has really been that "good" for a while.He lead the team to a 6-10 season,somehow won that game against the Raiders last year,and got his ass kicke din the first Ravens game last year.

After this year,Turnover Tommy is gonna be selling car insurance again.

Welcome aboard. I think Maddox can pass allright, he just has to have ALOT of time to do it. Unfortunately the game is too fast for him now and he has gone by the wayside. I like Tommy, but it is time for him to fade out.
