Kordell Stewart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1854 words)
Stewart attended the University of Colorado and was drafted 60th in the 1995 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
After years of trials and turmoil, Kordell Stewart had again established himself as the man at quarterback in Pittsburgh; and in 2001 Pittsburgh rode a dominant defense and strong running attack to a 13-3 regular-season record and the top seed in the AFC playoffs.
Stewart was signed in 2004 by the Ravens to play a backup role to Kyle Boller as a replacement for the injured Anthony Wright, and did not throw a pass (though he was unexpectedly successful as an emergency replacement for punter Dave Zastudil).
Face Off - Kordell Stewart (523 words)
Kordell Stewart has spent six seasons as a starting NFL quarterback, but he had at least 400 passing attempts in only three of those years (97, 98, and 01).
Kordell Stewart is not a great passer (career 70 TD and 72 INT), but those 35 career rushing TDs more than put him over the top when you start talking about fantasy numbers.
Kordell Stewart can be deadly when the defense breaks down and he becomes a running back, but he is absolutely atrocious when he stays in the pocket and has to play quarterback.
