I completely forgot about Smith. Smith, Garrard, and Young are the three I'd consider.

I think people are getting a little too "Madden" here. There's a reason why they (the Steelers) are looking at Palko and Croyle, because those guys already know Todd Haley's playbook. Like I said, this ain't Madden where you can sign a QB off the street and he's going to digest a new playbook in the course of a week.

You want other options? Go with Todd Haley's stint prior to KC in Arizona. No, I'm not saying trying and talk Kurt Warner out of retirement. OK... scratch that. DO try and talk Kurt Warner out of retirement, but when that fails... well, the Steelers could always bring back Brian St. Pierre (since Matt Leinart is currently on the active roster in Oakland and unattainable unless he's released).

Sign VY, power O left every time, and if that fails (never does though), drop back and then run it with Vince. Works in Madden, gotta work in real life

Among the numerous other flaws in Madden. If you just run a full season on simulation without touching the rosters on any given year, the Raiders will be in the playoffs at least every other year and win at least 1 out of every 10 Super Bowls (and yes, this stat holds true dating back to when JaWalrus was still in the game).

On the topic of JaWalrus... just plain simming the league, he reaches a 90+ rating within a maximum of 2 seasons each simulation and is in MVP consideration every year out.

The things Madden got right:
- Every season Terrell Owens is released and looking for a new team.
- Some team will ALWAYS sign Derek Anderson in free agency - it works like clockwork!

The Steelers should've just turned injuries off.

I came into this thread expecting way more Leftwich jokes than I got.

Time for Favre to make a come-back.


You should give yourself a warning for that comment. Razz


I'm dissapointed their weren't more Favre jokes personally. Favre doesn't need to learn a playbook, he's wrote all of them.

Favre would make all of Pittsburgh forget about what's his name from Miami (Oh). Long Live Lord Favre!

The biggest joke is still the Steelers' offensive line. Very Happy

They should bring Brian Hoyer in and see what he can do. He played behind Brady for years. Yeah, the Patriots cut him, but maybe they missed something? He really hasn't gotten a chance to play, and I'm curious to see how he does.

Hopefully who ever it is gets enough time to learn the offense before Charlie Batch gets broke(no pun intended Laughing).

I would really, really like to see a healthy Garrard get a chance to play with some real weapons. But like LBC said, it'd be hard for most players to get worked into the offense that quickly. And the fact that it's behind that o-line? Yeesh. By the time whoever they got into the situation up to speed and confident in the offense, you'd expect Ben to be ready to go again.

Actually, in the new offense, it's been average to better than average. Which, for the history of the Steelers O-line, is quite remarkable.
