Steelers | Bettis thinks Cowher helped run Stewart out of town

Wed, 22 Aug 2007 13:00:33 -0700

Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports former NFL RB Jerome Bettis said in his new book that he believes former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher helped Steelers' management run former NFL QB Kordell Stewart out of town because he was due a big contract after his Pro Bowl season in 2001. "You bench your Pro Bowl quarterback for a guy who had been out of football for years, who hadn't started an NFL game in 10 seasons? That just doesn't happen by accident. I think they pulled Kordell partly because they didn't want to pay him a big salary and signing bonus. It was cheaper for them if he didn't have success. If he recovered and had a huge year, then the public sentiment would be, 'Hey, you've got to re-sign him for whatever it costs.' I'm telling you, it was a monetary decision. The Steelers had no interest in paying Kordell his market value," Bettis said in his book.

The Associated Press reports Baltimore Ravens QB Kordell Stewart, who was recently signed to backup starting QB Kyle Boller, received a crash course of the team's playbook during minicamp, which concluded Thursday, June 10. "It's like going south on I-695 doing 150 m.p.h., and you're new to this country so you have to read every single sign,'' Stewart said. "I'm trying to see them on the go. Some of them I have to reverse and take a peek at before going again. Eventually, I'll get it.'' Head coach Brian Billick is confident Stewart will grasp the system. "It's like learning a new language,'' Billick said. "But when he comes back for training camp, he should have enough of a base underneath him so that he can put his best foot forward.''
