Default Slash was one badass player

it seems like kordell stewart could have been great, playing a few snaps everywhere(WR, WB, RB, K?) a game but i don't see why make him stay in one single role where he can't really take his exceptional athletic talent to the next level

Because he stubbornly insisted on playing only QB and Cowher acquiesced.

you could probably do a highlight reel of his 20-30 best plays that would rival anybodys highlight reel. two 80 yd runs vs baltimore and carolina immediately come to mind.

hope hes doing well with his lifes work now-

Yeah right. It shows him actually throwing a paper within catching distance of a receiver. Get real. Cowher never should have let him be a QB. He sucked at crunch time. One good season. Period. Not a good QB by any stretch. Great as a Slash.

That's it in a nutshell. Kordell had amazing overall athletic talent, but his ego got in the way.

Slash lost a lot of credibility when he came out with that I "Im a buisnessman" attitude and this was just a stop on his road to the hall of fame. Cowher gave him all the chance in the world, he jus couldnt cut the mustard at cruch time. Unlike Big Ben who is winner when it counts. No flash just cash!!!

I never was a big kordell fan but he was given the chance to be the man but just couldn't handle the job.
