    I'll buy the Big Ben part as key to success but not sure Colbert should get credit given the cap mess we are in. If he can keep us competitive the next couple years as we reload then I'm sold on him too.
    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!

    Colbert is not a cap guy. That is strictly Omar Kahn's department.

    Colbert really hasn't impressed the last several years. The drafts have not been all that great, even though the Steelers parade around like they are the pope of draft town. They are awesome at drafting, just ask them.

    Why? Does knowing and speaking the truth make you a bad fan??

    I don't live life in a delusional mindset. If you wish to, go for it.

    Kevin Colbert would be unemployed as an NFL GM for about 15 minutes if the Steelers fired him or he decided to try a different team.
