I never liked Maddox for several reasons. He had early success in Pittsburgh because there was no book on him, but teams figured him out quickly. I never thought Kordell should have been pulled in 2002...now I was wrong on that, but I wish it was someone other than Maddox who got the shot at succeeding Kordell.
But thats another topic. As for Palmer, I'm glad some of the hype is going away and that it truly looks like he will be ready in 2006. He is a special talent and should be fun to watch the next 10 years or so.
