    The Steelers are looking at 8-8, 7-9, 6-10, 5-11 for a long long time. Ben won't have another winning season, and he has about 7 seasons left.
    Then we might have trouble finding a good QB for perhaps a decade, then build a team for another couple years.

    It could be 20 years until we are in the playoffs again. However, until LeBeau quits, we should be competitive. But 8-8 wil be seen as great success in the coming years.

    Tomlin and Colbert needed to maintain what Cowher built, and get better. Not only did they fail to maintain, they actually got worse.

    I'd cut the whole team and start rebuilding now like an expansion team, instead of dying a slow death over the next 7 years, and then starting to rebuild.

    Never mind that G was a bigger need than OLB after the 2011 season. Anybody with eyes and a brain knew that.

    By the way, smart football fans wait a bit longer than two seasons before labeling draft picks as "busts." Then again, you're not smart, so I forgive you.

    1. Ziggy has not been a bust per say. He has been as productive as you can expect. He was just never a player who fitted the system.

    2. Heyward as been ANYTHING but a bust. Sure, he is not getting a lot of playtime, but you can blame our ridgid coaching staff for that. Whenever he sees the field, he plays really well. Its not his fault that they have Kiesel in front of him, who still plays lights out.

    3. Calling a first-year player a bust is idiotic beyond anything I've heard in this forum for a while. Especially since Mike Adams was really playing some nice football right before he got injured. He was destroying people in the run game, but did struggle somewhat in pass-coverage, which is really to be expected of a rookie who played "out of position".

    4. Every single team in the world would have picked DeCastro over Hightower if the pick had to be one of the two. DeCastro was and still is one of the best guard prospects to enter the draft in a long long time. Yeah, he was injured and that really ****ing sucked, but you can hardly fault anyone on that.

    5. You are not being a "realist". You are being ignorant without ANY evidence whatsoever in either of your claims.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    This brings up something I've been discussing with my buddy for a while. What's expected out of a draft and out of a #1 pick. Certainly, I agree that Hood has not provided #1 value. But what should that value be? Is it too much to expect a #1 pick should be an all-pro? Hood starts, but shouldn't the expectation be higher than that?

    From a draft class as a whole, what should be expected? Should we expect at least 2 starters, one an all-pro and maybe 4 total contributors (e.g., starters and back ups; not including special teams)? Where would you draw the line to call the entire draft class a bust?

    It's interesting, because I've felt for a while that Colbert gets way too many accolades for his drafting prowess, but I don't think the drafting has been as great as he seems to get credit for.
