    doesn't look like we have done that poorly finding UDFAs actually:

    Ramon Foster
    BJ Finney
    Mike Hilton

    So a little better, but they also had several losing seasons. 3 out of 10 probably isn't horrible, but might be mediocre with a tenured SuperBowl winning coach and HOF QB.
    I will check GB to see how they have faired.

    Seattle is probably the only other team thatís better than us the last 10 years in this dept.

    Also didnít we win a SB in 2008? I think thatís the 11th year.

    Always find it funny how folks use the year AFTER the SB victory to show his shortcomings.

    I just picked 10 years randomly. No agenda or any care what the data says either way. Felt like a round number

    Oh and no need to defend Tomlin here. I was suggesting this pointed out he doesn't have the talent to work with. Never brought his coaching into question.

    Gotcha. I do feel like player development falls on Tomlins shoulders that’s why I defended him.

    Thatís a good point that I wasnít really considering when I posted. I was thinking more itís about talent. And weíre not getting good enough talent.

    I guess to a degree Tomlin shares in the talent selection but Iím not sure how much is him vs Colbert vs the owner.

    Colbert has worked with Cowher and Tomlin. But then again thatís near impossible to compare because they had different Rooneyís running the team.

    And in fairness we could just be one great player tying everything together. What if we had Aaron Donald or JJ Watt? 1 guy thatís so dominant could change everything. Guys like Troy and Deebo were game changers on D. Do we really have anyone like that now?

    A couple right picks could change everything.

    Maybe we are doing a better job of actually drafting players and not relying on UDFA to start and play.
