Steeler Nation, through this dreadful 0-4 start of the Steelers we have heard everything. Fire MikeTomlin, fire Todd Haley, heck lose the rest of the season so we can get a higher draft pick. There has been no limits to the outrage and outrageous suggestions.
However, one that has recently picked up steam and in my opinion is way off base is the Steelers should get rid of GM Kevin Colbert.
When your coming off an 8-8 non playoff season and begin 0-4 there is going to be some blame and Colbert, the coaching staff, and players all deserve a share of that blame but getting rid of Kevin Colbert would be a huge mistake and is not the answer.
Has Colbert and his staff missed on picks and had some bad drafts? The answer is yes, but what GM has not, in the course of 13 seasons?
The NFL draft is a hit and miss event no matter how good the GM. That’s just the nature of the beast in the NFL and the more success you have as a team the harder it is to hit on these blue chip players late in the first round let alone at all.
Kevin Colbert is one of the top GM’s in the NFL. No one works harder at evaluating talent and few have as good a track record.
The bottom line is Cobert’s good far out weighs his bad. Firing Kevin Colbert is not the answer and would be a huge mistake. He would not be unemployed for long and that’s a fact.
What’s your opinion? We would love to hear it! Feel free to comment
