Default Re: Colbert, Steelers FO Allude to Changes on the Way

It appears Colbert has concluded attempting to apply patches will no longer work and that it is time for a rebuild

Ben might have to hope he can stay healthy and be around to be the grand old man of the team (such as Elway in the last few years of his career) after the Steelers take time time to retool for a few years

70s Steelers recognized it was time to say goodbye to a lot of players in 1980-81 after their run that started in 1972 ended - this group's run since 2004 is on the same trajectory (with the hopeful difference that Ben does not get a career ending injury like Bradshaw did that leads to an early termination of his career)
