With all the QB troubles teams are having this year, I wouldnt be surprised to see him picked up by another team as a 3rd stringer. But he better not be with the Steelers!

I don't see him wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform next year. His accuracy isn't very good and he has been making poor decisions. He very well could go play on another team, but not as a starter.

Thumbs down Re: Has Maddox sealed his fate for next year?

why did we let Maddox throw the ball 36 times?we dont do it with ben...i understand that they wanted to stop the run but we only let Parker run the ball 3 times in the 1st half and in the 2nd half we gave him 15 carries? i dont see why we stop doin what we do best and thats running the ball to let Maddox throw the game away for us

It's the curse of playing TommY Maddox. All of the sudden, the whole dynamic of the offense needs to change to accomodate his poor playing style. The defense STACKS UP against the run, forcing us to pass, then they rush straight to the middle of the pocket, because they know he'll be there standing like a scared idiot waiting to take the sack. It's a bad, bad cycle.

Thankfully, you will NEVER see Tommy Maddox on the football field again (please stay healthy Ben, please?) No one, will pick him up, he is a proven loser . . . no heart, no drive, waning skills.

Here we go.

I hope all you Tommy Bum supporters are done now.

That game reminded me so much of 2003. The only thing he ever did was save us from Kordell...

Exactly, he has a very friendly cap arrangement which was another benefit to keep him this long..

He was decent if not serviceable after the titans game..but ever since Ben took his job, even coming in, in spot duty has been asking too much.

YUCK !!!! Even saying Kordell makes me puke.

Let's face it guys. Between Terry and Ben our luck with quarterbacks have benn so/so at best. One of my worst memories is the Superbowl surrounded by a bunch of Dallas fans and watching Neil throw such horrible interceptions you swear he went color blind and couldn't figure out who his teammates were.

Baltimore can the stop the Steelers running game cold for some reason. To score anything Tommy had to throw. When we played them the first time this year Ben threw alot in that game also.

If they are playing a 4-4 with an aggressive pass rush, everyone is in single coverage. With a competent passer, you pass because you have lots of wide open shots, like the 30 yard completion to Ward that would have been a TD if the ball had not been so badly underthrown or the 4th and 1 fiasco where 2 receivers were not covered.

With Tommy Gun you get a QB who does not anticipate a rush when it does come and falls down in anticipation of a rush that does not come. Throwing the passes was an arrogant refusal by Cowher and Wiesenhunt to admit Maddox can no longer play - should have run the ball more and hoped Parker might break a few.

Only reasons the game was not a blowout were that the Ravens were offside on Tommy Gun's 3rd Q fumble that was run back to the 1 yard line and that Kyle Boeller is a 25 year old version of Maddox.

At least we know Maddox is gone; imagine being a Ravens fan and watching your team invest a #1 draft choice and several lost seasons on Boeller.

Good point there Atlanta Dan. I only got to watch highlights on the game on ESPN. Not much of a game anyway.

WE"LL GET THE COLTS ON MONDAY ANYWAYS!!!
