Kordell Stewart: Georgia Arrest over Traffic Issue a Relief to Steeler Nation
Stewart Brings Back Fond and Not-so-Fond Memories In Pittsburgh
Kordell Stewart was arrested in Georgia this week over a traffic matter, and Steelers fans were just happy it did not involve Ben Roethlisberger, transvestite prostitutes or anyone on the current roster.
Stewart won the hearts of Steelers fans early in his career with his "Slash" role, but defenses soon adapted to him as a quarterback, and many Steelers fans feel former Head Coach Bill Cowher stuck with Stewart long past when he should have been benched.
A source tells Channel 2's Mike Petchenik officers arrested Stewart on Windward Parkway and charged him with driving with a suspended license and failure to appear. He was booked into the Alpharetta City Jail. Stewart was a standout quarterback with the Pittsburgh Steelers and lives in Atlanta. Stewart also played in Chicago and Baltimore before turning to broadcasting.

This all seems like a big deal over nothing, only making news because Stewart used to be a star NFL quarterback.
The stories that flew around Pittsburgh about Stewart's alleged off-field activities were far worse than this.
Stewart seemed poised to be the Steelers franchise quarterback for years to come when he just stopped being effective. Cowher believed in him and kept trying to put him in a position to win, but Stewart's production faded and Cowher eventually was left with no choice but to move on.
Stewart finished his career in Baltimore.
