    I think you read my mind before you wrote this article.

    I’ve been worried about my Steelers since the 2009 season. I have a laundry list of concerns, but the two biggest concerns I have is the lack of player development, the poor personnel decisions and just the overall unpreparedness of the team in many, MANY games.

    I miss the days of knowing I could enjoy the second half of games or even take a nap during the second half of games against bad teams because I knew we could put them away. Those days are long gone.

      Sorry, meant THREE biggest concerns.

        Player development is definitely a concern. I’m torn on what Colbert has done because no GM hits on 100% of his picks (even 1st rounders) but at the same time the Steelers made the playoffs every year under Cowher and never really had a hard time turning over the roster.

        Bad Personnel choices and unpreparedness to play are both hallmarks of the Tomlin regime. I’m not trying to say he’s a lousy coach or anything but these problems cropped up in 2009 and they’re still cropping up three years later. At some point, somebody needs to start asking some questions about what exactly he’s doing.

        First of all Cower did not make the play-off in every year of his stay. Tomlin have two Super-bowl runs, give the guy a break.

    I think you’re being way to hard on Tomlin. Those press conferences mean exactly NOTHING and the media is entitled to hear nothing. Tomlin has owned his mistakes and I think the Steelers aren’t more than 3 years (tops) away from their next Lombardi.

    This is a multi-billion dollar business. Don’t expect any team to show their cards and say what’s really going on inside their facility. If you take a look at any interview on NFL.com, for instance, you’ll quickly realize that most of these things said are just lies.
    The NFL tries to milk as much money out of their fans as possible, and they can’t do that by being honest.
