Good to see Colbert gives no fucks.
I would be surprised if he went to the Jets. Working with a guy who's name both mean schlong and the head of the schlong in Rex Ryan, I just dont see it. Anyone but the Jets.

THANK GOD, some of these guys need to go (mendenhall, wallace) Half of the 0-line. I am so glad to hear this. I was afraid we were just going to cut a few players to make cap space and go with the same pieces of crap we had this season. Thrilled to hear that is not the case. no more trio of shitty running backs. Like I said Draft a back as our number 1 or 2 pick, and this time draft the right one.

Running back is not the problem.

Thankfully you aren't the GM.

You want to get rid of arguably the best deep threat in the NFL, the Steelers best WR and Ben's favourite target. You also want to get rid of a proven NFL starting running back who is a 25 year old former first round pick to take a chance on an unproven college player who might be better or who might be a bust. I'm not sure which OL you don't like but they are all young and most of them were hurt.

With the Steelers spending a first round pick on running back every four years it's going to be hard to fill quality players at other positions.

so, we should expect a 3rd or 4th rd QB pick too - oh, Ben won't like that

The Steelers will explore drafting a quarterback above the late rounds to provide a younger backup to Ben Roethlisberger

I think BB knows that the team needs a legitimate back-up QB.

or maybe a 1st rounder

"We won't close the door on any position in any round. We can't ... Once we get into free agency and the draft, I don't see any position that's off limits."
