Starving for Steelers football…the XFL might have the remedy!

February 20th, 2023

The Steelers season ended on a high note and left all fans crazing next year. As I start to put away my Steelers stuff until this summer, I did get a chance to watch some alumni play this weekend and also was able to see Hines Ward and Rod Woodson make their respective Head Coaching debuts.

The XFL has a special place in Steelers lure since Tommy Maddox, the first XFL, MVP, found his way on to the roster and then pushed an end to the Kordell Stewart era. Maddox produced his best season in the NFL and served as the bridge to Ben Roethlisberger and as one of Ben’s early mentors.
