Starting with Colbert...
After going 8-8, he was quoted as saying..."If we don't change a roster that produced 8-8, we'd be silly to expect a better result," Colbert said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Ok, so let me get this straight. Instead of picking up some FA vets, we allow several playmakers such as Harrison, Wallace, and Lewis to walk. We have no experienced replacements to take over for these guys...don't embrace FA..and essentially hope we will be better? That mentality is killing the Steelers. Colbert needs to be the first to go.
Tomlin should be second on the list. If you compare Tomlin and Cowher two huge stats show up. First is Tomlin's teams are much more penalized than Cowhers. Also turnover ratios are much worse under Tomlin. Not to mention numerous bone headed coaching mistakes, and failures to see need before the start of seasons. Lets not even get into how he has handled the OL this season. His time in the Burgh is up.
Haley. I'm less upset with Haley as I have seen this team get better on O, each and every week. But, with his known history of abrasivness...and the need for a fresh start all around...he needs to go as well.
LeBeau...He has been a great coach for a long time. But, I believe the game has passed him by. No pressure, few sacks, few turnovers...difficult to watch back up QBs shred your D. What would the Broncos do to the Steelers? It's time.
