Ben and shrewd GM make Steelers impossible to count out
Pete Prisco from CBS Sports.com apparently did not get the memo that the Steelers are doomed
Big Ben and shrewd GM make Steelers impossible to count out
They are a non-playoff team that plays in a division with the Super Bowl winner. Even worse, they are an aging team, saddled by cap problems with several holes to fill.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, you might say, have issues.
That you can't deny. But they have two things that should make the loud, vocal and wide-ranging Steelers Nation feel good about this team and where it might be in 2013.
They have Ben Roethlisberger and Kevin Colbert.
When you have a franchise quarterback like Roethlisberger and a general manager like Colbert, one of the NFL's best talent evaluators, there is no need to panic. ...
Roethlisberger is good enough to keep this team a true Super Bowl contender despite the cap issues and age on the roster.
Give me a franchise quarterback and a shrewd talent evaluator and I will take my chances every single season, which is why the Steelers aren't fading away like some would make you think.
