I think people compare him to Aaron Smith... which is akin to comparing the Eagles' current DEs to Reggie White & then complaining about them.

Not me. I had him as a guy that will last 10 years in the NFL and hopefully with the Steelers. We didnt even give Urbik 24 months on the team, but gave Tony Hills 4 years. Below is my posting from 2009.... (man was I wrong on Duke Robinson and Trevor Canfield)


I like Urbik. When I saw him play in reg season I thought he was a big strong mauler with a nasty streak....but he didnt look to have quick feet to pull and trap. After watching him in the Senior Bowl week of practice he showed good agility.

I honestly think Urbik is behind Mack, Robinson, Wood, Cantwell and Tyronne Green. I can see Urbik probably going in the 3rd round, but could move up if there is a run on guards

I dont think he is either. We needed a D lineman at #32 and got one that year. Everybody thinks if you draft a 1st rounder, he better be a pro bowler every year.

Yes, we know that you do not like AB.

For a 6th round pick, I'd say the kid is pretty good. I also thought that Wallace was a good pick (although, he could be gone... or, franchised). And, I am not ruling out Sanders after just three seasons (Hines Ward was considered a bust early on, and hence, they drafted Troy Edwards & Plaxico Burress in back-to-back years). Add in Cotcherty, and I think that this is a very skilled WR corps.

I thought Tomlin played just as big as a role in drafting as Colbert does.

Colbert is probably one of the best GM's in the NFL, and it would be a mistake to let him go. From what I understand, he has a lot of power to make decisions for the Steelers. Obviously the Rooneys trust him to make the best decisions.

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).

I think he is good but way overrated on this board. He seems to have slipped a bit in recent years and missed out on a lot of great opportunities. Besides M.Pouncey, Colbert hasn't had any recent stud draft picks. I'm still looking to see how DeCastro pans out but I have a bad feeling he will be a dud. Like a lot of Roethlisburger fans, I believe the Colbert fans are living in the not so far past. Can't see what is in store for us this year's draft.

Guys, listen to Teegre. Khan is going to be the next GM of the Steelers. He would've left a long, long time ago unless, ya know, he got the idea from somewhere that he would become the GM of the Steelers. He deserves the job, too. With the magic he's worked with our cap situation, he should be nicknamed Houdini.

RE: Hood

While I'll agree that it maybe unreasonable to expect Hood to play at the same level as A.Smith, but for a guy as big and as strong as he's supposed to be, one would like to see him not getting trucked like he's on skates as often as he does, especially against zone blocking schemes. Of course playing next to Mr. Softy at OLB isn't making him look any too good.....
