Default Here's why we should appreciate Tommy "Gun" Maddox

Alright, everyone jump on, first steeler post here, and Im watching these videos, showing the doom of Maddox, and all his TOs, and yes he player really really really bad this season. But hold on one second.........In 2002-2004 he through for 6200yds, and almost 40 TDs. Ok not great, but think about what he did for the QB position for those two years. Steelers did not have another starter on the team, nobody, st pierre, or batch at the time were not starters. So he is doing pretty well those years, making less than a special teamer. What would have happened if he left at the end of the 2003 season, or even 2004?????? Kordell??? No, We would have had to draft or trade for a starting QB. Now think about how often that happens......as far as Im concerned, its not that often. Heres my point, before everyone piles on and throws a brick through my front window. WE WOULD NEVER HAVE BIG BEN ON OUR ROSTER IF IT WERENT FOR MADDOX STICKING AROUND INSTEAD OF CHASING THE MONEY AFTER A GREAT YEAR. He did well for the few years we really needed him, he has to have help #7 in some capacity, and I that is why we should appreciate the Comeback Player of the Year, and not worry about the games hes played lately. GO STILLERS

also another good thing about that waste of life is him losing us to games, he forced to play are best down the stretch instead of taking it easy going into the playoffs

Everybody on this board almost was on the Tommy bandwagon heading into this year when we knew we needed a viable backup who played recently and batch hadnt taken a meaningful snap in 3 years...but after watching him completely self destruct this season for us and watching what batch did off the bench before he got hurt in cleveland was enough for me to say See ya Tommy after this season.

I have no problem with them letting him go, he may even get a SB ring. I dont know if he would even get picked up for a practice squad. I just cant get on here and rag him up and down. Bottom line Batch is a good enough qb, but we knew that in preseason.

Tommy's a good guy and all but a good QB he is not. I would still take him over Kordell any day! I think that is why everyone got caught up in him. We actually had someone throwing the ball that could (at times) hit our WR's in stride. If Kordell did that it was pure luck. The problem with Tommy was that he could hit the other's teams DB's in stride too!

besides if he didnt suck so bad, we wouldnt have been the only #6 seed to make it to the playoffs and win 3 road games in a row!

I remember one game, where Maddox threw like Nearly 500 yards, 4 TD, and 1 INT. He was a star in that game.

while he hasnt played very well this year i think his experience/knowledge of the game has helped a certain young quaterback. that said i dont want to see him take another snap, but a mentor is a good role for him.
