I’m a Kordell Stewart fan.
As my long time readers know, I make no secret of this fact. I’ve written a number of posts making a case for why I think he is unfairly remembered. I won’t bore you with rehashing those arguments. Suffice it to say, anybody who followed the Steelers religiously in the 90′s will remember Slash as the most unstoppable offensive weapon in the NFL. He was what guys like Michael Vick or Vince Young could only hope to some day be. And he did this with a merry-go-round of offensive coordinators and a group of very sub-par wide receivers.
If not for the fact Steeler Nation is only satisfied with Lombardi Trophies and anything less is unacceptable, he’d be acknowledged as one of the all-time greats. It amazes me that Bill Cowher is remembered so fondly when he won once in his 15 years but #10 is downgraded because he didn’t. I’m not saying Slash is better than Big Ben, I’m just saying he deserves much better than to be lumped in with the likes of Mike Tomczak or Bubby Brister. The man produced some of the most exciting plays in Steeler history so let’s give him the props he deserves.
I still love ya, Kordell. You know, in a fond but very manly way. Not that there’s anything wrong with that..
