1.(n) When a quarterback is so inept at throwing the football, every down is guaranteed to be a running play. Named after former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Tommy Maddox, when he filled in for the starting quarterback during the 2005 season. His run-heavy/no-pass play calling was mercilessly mocked by play-by-play announcers.
2.(n) To only run the football. No forward passes, screens, or QB Option (with the intent of passing). Only hand-offs, pitches, bootlegs, or any other designed rushing play qualifies for this designation.
1. An angry Pittsburgh fan has immortalized Tommy Maddox's massive failure by attributing no-pass play-calling to his name: The Tommy Maddox Offense.
2. My brother was trying to get the game record rushing yards achievement in Madden, so he entered the Tommy Maddox Offense.
