Default Re: How legit is Colbert

I thought Tomlin played just as big as a role in drafting as Colbert does.

Colbert is probably one of the best GM's in the NFL, and it would be a mistake to let him go. From what I understand, he has a lot of power to make decisions for the Steelers. Obviously the Rooneys trust him to make the best decisions.

If you were to get rid of Colbert, who are you going to replace him with? Drafting is always a gamble, some star players in college pan out in the pros, others do not. Is it the fault of the GM is those don't pan out?

But I think Colbert has done a pretty great job on getting talent, although sometimes not always the "best available", but for the most part we should be thankful of his decisions.
