Default What did you Steelers fans think of Kordell Stewart?

I'm having a debate about Kordell Stewart with someone else on another forum. Just to let you all know, we're both not Steelers fans. But yes, if any number of you could elaborate on whether he was a good quarterback for you that just wasn't coached up to par, and definitely had potential, or if he just failed to live up to expectations even when given a good amount of help...well I'd greatly appreciate your insight. Thanks.

Kordell was actually the reason I became a Steelers fan. I am from BC Canada, and there is no team here, closest is the Seahawks(ewww)... I saw some Kordell highlights in like 97/98, and decided I was going to be a Steelers fan.

But yeah, he kinda sucked for most of his time here. He had his good years though. I still prefer him over Tommy Maddox though. God damn I hated that guy.

I didn't see him live, but from what I've read and gathered, he played because he was a big play waiting to happen, but most of the time made bad plays. For every good play he actually did, there were many bad ones.

Still, I think there are a couple of guys who'll know more about this.

And yeah, he did have some good seasons, but I think he was wildly inconsistent.

He seemed to be good one year and terrible the next. I don't remember perfectly because I was between like 10 and mid teens when he played but from what I remember when there were expectations he sucked then when no one expected anything he was decent. We also didn't have much in the way of receivers then considering he was throwing to the likes of charles johnson and maybe ernie mills although that may have been before he was starting full time. I remember we did bring in Kent Graham to replace him one year so that should tell you a little about how good he was.

A decent QB who was constantly over matched in big games by better teams with better coaching staffs

Well we knew he was never a "Franchise QB", and Steelers didn't have the explosive Offense that you're seeing now and in recent years, so expectations were a lot different back then. Steelers were a smashmouth team. Run the ball, play tough Defense, and hope Kordell can manage, make a play or two, and not blow the game. Of course we still always held out hope for that 300 yard passing game every time out, but it was still about Bettis and the Defense.

Whether he wasn't coached up right, or was just carried along due to the set up around him, I don't know, I think it's just pretty much the same for every non Franchise QB. He just played a different style that brought a lot of hype.

Kordell was a good QB that struggled with accuracy and wasn't mentally strong. He tended to compound errors and let criticism get to him. When he was bad, he was really bad, when he was good, he almost won an MVP.

Take 2001:
3,109 yards passing, 14 TDs, 11 Ints, 60.2% completion
537 yards rushing 5 TDs

That's a great year. Then he fell apart and didn't start more than 7 games in a season for the rest of his career.

Kordell was a below average qb at his best. He was at his best as a role player i.e. Slash. When he came into the game with his own package of plays he was exciting. They designed plays where he threw, caught, and ran the ball and he was a triple threat. But when he was asked to be the quarter back and and be the guy his weaknesses were quickly found out. He couldn't read a defense to save his life. Always threw the ball late. A reciever would get open and he'd throw the ball too late. Couldn't anticipate the receiver getting open. And after Yancey Thigpen left because of Kordell was going to get him killed. Yancey even said kordell couldn't ever get past who was the first read on the play. He either tried to force the ball or ran.
If kordell would of stayed slash he'd been a dangerous weapon 5 to 10 plays a game but never was good enough to start.

Loved Kordell as SLASH. Okay as a QB - probably average at best but not the worst ever. In his defense, he had a few O-Coordinators in his time but as SLASH, I loved the guy...

as a QB stewart was ok i guess, i think a smaller vince young is a good comparison....huge arm, questionable accuracy and touch, great legs, constant *** rumors....its almost dead on

if they steelers kept him at WR where he belonged he would have put up incredible numbers, a legitimate chance to be mentioned among the best

Default Kordell Stewart

Kordell "slash" Stewart. I really think that if Neil O'Donnell would have stayed around the two of them would have had a Super Bowl Tittle together I think. Kordell was a great fit for the "Slash" position . . he scared defenses. When he was the starting QB I dont think he scared Defenses the same way. But I liked Kordell .. . . and I think the Coaching was fine, but they could have used a QB coach back then and If I remember correctly they didnt have that coach back then.
