Steelers History Question- Batch and Maddox

 

A question regarding recent Steelers history. When Batch was brought in (2003) was he expected to be the back-up to Maddox or was their a competition for the job that year. Also, was Maddox cut in 2005?

I have the QB situation for each recent year below. Can anyone confirm the status

 

2003- Maddox starter Batch back-up (didn't play but was healthy)

2004- Maddox started. Ben R. took over in week 2 due to Maddox injury. Ben kept starting job when Maddox returned. I think Maddox played last game at Buffalo- meaningless. What about Batch? I think he wa hurt for entire season.

2005- Ben R. started. Ben R. got injured. Batch played some games in replacement got hurt. Maddox played as well. This is what I can't remember. Did the Steelers have all 3 on the roster that year? OR did the team cut Maddox before season and then re-sign him when Ben R. got hurt.

2006 and 2007. Ben R. started. Charlie B played a game or two when Ben was hurt.

2008 Ben R. started. Batch was hurt again. Leftwich was #2.

2009 Ben R. starts, batch hurt again! Dixon is now #2.
