Default Tommy Maddox

Has anyone heard why Tommy did not go to the White House with the team yesterday?

I know alot of you out there are Tommy Haters so please forgo all the slights you are tempted to post about him, we've heard them before... I was at the Jacksonville game and saw the Steeler Nation's displeasure with him but it was the same disdain I saw heaped upon Jerome Bettis only two years earlier at a Bengals game when he fumbled at the goal line and was booed off the field.

Tommy was a great mentor/coach to/for Ben and hopefully he will find a place as a QB coach somewhere in the league if he does not get picked up.

No idea why he was not at the ceremonies.

Rumor is he blamed Bush for throwing trash in his yard, the weather and he went on to call out the rest of the Bush administration for his short comings and horrible play this past season....

Ok about Tommy it wasn't so much that he stunk up the place and lost games for us. It was the fact after the Jax game he came up with sorry excuses and put the blame it seemed on other people and not on himself. Like the fumble in overtime he said he ran into Dan Kreider when clearly you saw he never made contact with Kreider. Then Tommy made the excuse it was windy during the game. If Tommy would have just owned up to his short comings then I would had no problem with Tommy.

Tommy was terrible in the Raven and Jag games this year there is no doubt. I'm not sure what happened to him. He just lost it. But I barely remember those games anymore.

What I try to remember is the 02 season. Especially that playoff comeback against the Browns. That is one of my favorite games of all time. I love watching the replay on NFL game of the week.

I don`t want him anymore, but he did seem to be a mentor to Ben, so I am curious why he did not go to Washington!

He probally didn't go because he's probally pissed that he was cut from the team.What does he expect when he stinks the joint up when he plays and then instead of being a man and admitting his mistakes he blamed it on other things.He'll get his Super Bowl ring in the mail.

I didn't know he did not go. If he didn't I am sure he had his reasons. political or not. He was the parade and I am pretty sure he had a clue he would be cut so I don't think that is the reason.

He's the only guy that got booed at the Super Bowl parade.....I think that could've been part in the deciding factor of why he didn't show up.

My family taped the news for me of the Steelers' White House visit while I was away, and WPXI out of Pittsburgh reported that Tommy Maddox informed the Steelers organization that he was "unavailable" for this event. Sounds like yet another excuse to me.
