    Colon says don't point fingers.

    Yea, I would too if I was a big part of the problem. "Hey bros, let's not point fingers at the problem; never mind that I am a huge part of that problem."

    “We’ve got to be more efficient in different areas,” left guard Willie Colon said. “The main thing is we’ve got to stay together as a team. We can’t point fingers. We can’t get into who’s at fault. We’ve got to flat-out do better. Somehow, somewhere, we’ve got to pick it up.
    Yea, starting with you, you overweight, can't-block, penalty flag machine.

    Pgh has lost to an under .500 Denver, and then to two of the very worst teams in the entire NFL. At this point, I think Cleveland is better than Pgh, as of right now.

    You can dislike Colon all you want but he does say the right things and seems like a good team first guy.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Well, that being said, I wish he'd start PLAYING better than he speaks to the press. He is highly overpaid, overrated, sloppy, too fat, part of the PROBLEM. He must have nude pics of Art 2 or something; I see NO REASON why the team so overpays and overrates this waste. They have always overstated his talent and value. It is beyond obvious.

    Thread title seems misleading to me. He says they can't point fingers. He isn't telling anyone to not point fingers, which is how it sounds. Then again, I'm half asleep so I may just be out on my own limb here.

    You sleep on a limb?

    Colon grabs them and holds on.

    He said they need to not point fingers, and my point is that one of the guys most DESERVING of having fingers pointed to him doesn't want anyone pointing fingers, that's all. It is like when Kordell said, after he played horrible, "This is a team game" but after he played "OK" and they lost, he'd say, "I played pretty well."

    true, and Foster makes a lot less $ and gets jerked around way more yet you never hear a negative word.

    agreed.

    he out performed kemo all last season and still caught hell on here. He will never be a pro-bowler but he is better than some give him credit for. Plus he is a tough kid. I remember several times where he got dinged up and still came back in and finished. Very underappreciated guy on the OL.

    Foster gets paid way less, and has been a good trooper his career. He will never be a top shelf OG, but at least he is serviceable without costing a fortune, and, I haven't checked, but I bet he gets less flags thrown on his play. Colon is getting paid like a top 10% lineman, and not even coming close to playing like one. Don't point fingers, indeed.
