    Kevin Colbert: How do you feel about him?

    Well, we've done little to nothing in free agency and we have a ton of holes. And this guy has taken to becoming " Silent Samantha" on us and not saying anything about this teams direction. He's simple minded, he doesn't know how to maneuver around in the draft by trading down. So which one applies to how you feel?

    1. I think Colbert is a great GM and he'll get the job done.

    2. Colbert is a bum and I've seen enough. I want him gone.

    3. It's not Colbert's fault; He's doing what the Rooney's want.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Kevin Colbert: How do you feel about him?

    I'm in between I'd say decent but not great. I mean we have won 2 SB's with him but I think he'll be gone soon if we go down the tube in the next year or so.

    He is usually brilliant in the first round. I don't like his second and third day drafting; he finds someone who lasts occasionally, but its not often enough for my liking.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    I think Colbert's results do not match with the reputation he has. People think of him as this brilliant GM, but reality is far from that. Here's a list of his first rounds picks over the last 5 years:

    2008: Mendenhall
    2009: Ziggy Hood
    2010: Pouncey
    2011: Cam Heyward
    2012: DeCastro

    There's not much brilliance there; well maybe Poucey. DeCastro the jury is out on still.

    The drafts that should be forming the core of the team right now are really 2007, 2008 and 2009. Certainly, no one can argue with 2007; phenomenal draft. No matter how you slice 2008, it was an unmitigated disaster. 2009 was a decent draft as a whole (when you factor in Wallace and Lewis) but consider this. From those 3 drafts combined, we had 3 players left. Twenty-four picks over 3 years including 3 number 1s, 2 number 2s and 5 number 3s and we have 3 total players to show for it (Timmons, Woodley and Ziggy Hood.) I guess you could add in Spaeth and Gay who returned this year as well.

    The guy has shown no ablility draft wise to move back, and pick up additional second round picks. That's precisely what we need this season. The guy is an *** kisser and nothing else. It's not hard to make good picks in the first round.

    I want Colbert fired. I've seen enough.

    stupid opinions that are ignorant of fact should be pointed out as stupid opinions that are ignorant of fact... this isn't pop warner, everyone doesn't get a trophy for participating

    dont swoop in with your mature burger and then resort to hugs and moms... be a man, and call me an ******* if you want to. but dont try and drive on both sides of the street.

    now, name one GM with a job today, that has drafted more players that have at least one super bowl ring... (see... that's what ignorant looks like)

    Oooh put me in my place! If you knew (or any of us) knew as much as we thought we wouldnt be sitting behind a monitor. Your "knowledge" and "un-ignorant opinions" doesnt make me look up to you... It makes you look foolish. This forum is for fans not a job interview. Most of us i guess are stupid and ignorant. Which is fine by me b/c i like having stupid conversations about my favorite team and to hear others ideas and opinions.
