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

Memo to Artie: Let Kevin Colbert handle football operations as you aren't very good at it.
I feel that both were correct.

This team was 6-3 and arguably one of the best in the league (many sources had them as the top team in their power-rankings...not that power-ranking mean much), and Las Vegas had them as the third or fourth best odds to win it all.

And then... injuries galore.

Furthermore, this team is young at several key positions: WR, CB, ILB, DE, O-line.

BUT, there is also dead weight and/or a need for change (or cuts or whatever).
