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.
To clarify:
Colbert is going nowhere. He will retire in a few years... and then...

To answer your question of "Who?":
Omar Khan.

Khan has been offered other GM jobs, but has turned them down, because he will take over as the GM for the Steelers (which just happens to be one of the top jobs in ALL of sports).
