Kordell Stewart knows he would thrive in today's NFL

The former Steelers QB/WR doesn't believe the gap between Terry and Ben was the dark ages in Pittsburgh

Many believe that former Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart, better known as “slash”, was a player ahead of his time.

Listen to all of Kordell Stewart's comments

His mobility and ability to run would fit right in to the type of starting quarterback that finds success in today’s NFL.

“The game today, is what we were doing in the 90s,” Stewart told Poni and Mueller on The PM Team Wednesday. “It would work 100 ways over,” Stewart added with confidence in his voice.

Stewart isn’t bragging when he says he would be able to thrive in today’s NFL, it’s just a confidence he has.

Stewart went 46-29 during his eight years in Pittsburgh starting in 80 of them and appearing in 113 as “slash” with 13,328 yards, 70 touchdowns and 72 interceptions. He also had a quarterback rating of 72.3.

Stewart also helped get the Steelers to the AFC Championship game in 1997 and 2011, but Pittsburgh lost both of those games with Stewart throwing three interceptions against the Broncos in 1997 and 2001 was the infamous Spygate game.

While some consider the time after Bradshaw and before Roethlisberger the dark times, Stewart says he had a lot of fun and they had a lot of great moments during that time.

“What we did back then was special, you cannot erase it, it’s documented, there were some tough times, there were some horrible times, but boy I’ll tell you what when the times were good, the times were excellent,” said Steward. “I’m going to be honest with you, the black and gold, I bleed it, it was the most fun I’ve had and that ‘Slash’ era, god dang-it, I wish we could replay that again.”

Stewart says they had great teams and took responsibility for rough playoff games,

"We just had moments, especially for myself in the bigger games, especially in the postseason, where when you have turnovers, its hard for you to come from behind from with that, but you can't negate the runs that we had," said Stewart.

Stewart is back with his own show. It’s called “On the Edge with SLASH”.

The show will feature Stewart talking about the NFL, college football, golf and more.

Stewart says he'll be back in Pittsburgh in October.
