Quarterbacks-R-Us

Quarterback takes the snap... receives the handoff on the reverse... and catches the touchdown pass.

You'd think the QB had a busy day, running a couple of gadget plays... except that this was all on the same play.

Sounds like a 1960s sitcom using a split screen to show the actor on-screen twice simultaneously (various episodes of Gilligan's Island and Bewitched come to mind).

What teams occasionally forget about (to the Browns' detriment last night) is that the Steelers have a (relatively short) history of recruiting college QBs and turning them into wide receivers. In the 1990s, they had Kordell "Slash" Stewart. Antwaan Randle El and Hines Ward are the current editions of quarterback-turned-wideout that the Steelers employ.

So the (QB) Maddox-to-(RB) Staley-to-(QB) Randle El-to-(QB) Ward play last night shouldn't come as much of a surprise. It was certainly entertaining (at least to us Steelers fans ;) ). The only thing that would have made it better would be to listen to Myron Cope comment on it.

Kudos also to Hines Ward, who broke John Stallworth's reception record in the game. Maybe I'm biased, being a Steelers fan and all, but Ward's a class act, and you couldn't ask for a better person to break the record of another class act. I can certainly think of worse candidates (a certain loudmouthed suspended Eagle comes to mind).

Here we go, Steelers...

I jumped out of my couch yelling during that play. I woke my poor kid up. So needless to say, she got to watch most of the second half with daddy.
