Under Colbert we have won two Superbowls in four years. Only three players on this SB were NOT signed under Colbert's tenure. Only 20 players on this SB was part of Ring #5 under Bill Cowher. That's 33 new players. Our Special Teams coverage units ranked #5 on KO and #3 on Punt Returns.
Let's not forget that 6.9 mil$ to Starks everyone hated. If that had not happened I doubt we'd have another ring with Marvel Smith going down. His Crystal Ball was right on time with that one.
I never really had a problem with the Starks tag. It was worth the one year, because they prepared for the worst, and the WORST happened - Marvel's back gave out again. It was great to see Starks step up and man the fort at LT. He should get an extension. Mewelde Moore was an excellent pickup filling the void for Willie and Mendenhall when they both went down early on in the year, and being excellent as the 3rd down back and being one of the unsung heroes on that game winning drive in the Super Bowl throwing key blocks and being a decoy in the flat on several occasions that allowed Holmes to get open and make the plays he did. The 2007 draft while it didnt show many results this season still has a lot of upside with guys like Sweed and Mendenhall who both should be better in year two. Also, a guy like Ryan Mundy who most likely would have made the team had he not got hurt in preseason. Bringing in Mitch Berger to at LEAST give us a chance in the punting game. Fixing the Special Teams games and signing a guy like Keyaron Fox who was a beast on ST this season, and finding an undrafted rookie like Patrick Bailey as well who was awesome on special teams. All of that had to do with Tomlin and Colbert bringing in the right players and getting the most out of them.
