Found January 19, 2013 on SteelerAddicts:
The Steelers presented their version of The Colbert Report this week. It wasn’t quite the same as the Comedy Central show, however. Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert doesn’t pronounce his last name the same way as comedian Stephen Colbert, and what he talked about was no laughing matter. Kevin Colbert talked about various issues facing the team in the wake of an 8-8 season that was over before New Year’s Eve. Among the things he said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, is that the Steelers would consider drafting a quarterback in the first round in April. The first round might be a little early, but it’s time the Steelers draft a quarterback for the first time since taking Dennis Dixon in the fifth round in 2008. They need a better insurance policy at the position than they have now. Charlie Batch was starting to get into a groove when he led the Steelers to a win at Baltimore. It might have been interesting to see how differently the Steelers’ game against the Chargers ...

Should the Steelers Switch Back to the 4-3 Defense?

The Steelers have been running the 3-4 defense for years, but it may be time to think about making a change. Sure Dick LeBeau’s defense was ranked first in the league statistically in 2012 and things seem to be fine on the defensive side of the ball. Yet with aging defenders and players expected to be on their way out of Pittsburgh in the next few years things are going to change...

Can the Steelers Learn From Today’s Final Four?

Every Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan has different teams that they despise but you would be hard-pressed to find any that don’t have complete hatred for both of the AFC Championship game participants today.

Steelers Looking To Add A True Featured RB This Offseason

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that the Steelers will have to decide between re-signing Rashard Mendenhall or find a true featured back at some point during the offseason.

Tomlin’s first draft in 2007 started out with two eventual defensive starters...

Steelers To Take A Wide Receiver In The First Round?

By Jeremy Hritz The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver position, one that was thought to be a tremendous strength and one of the best in the league at the beginning of last season, is seriously in question heading into the 2013 offseason. Malcontent Mike Wallace will walk, which essentially is a positive due to his self-acknowledged lack of focus and true production during the 2012...

Rooney: Rooney Rule 'workable'

The "Rooney Rule" is workable - with some tweaks - according to its namesake.
