Steelers, Kevin Colbert, GM discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM Show


The system just develops wide receivers or the GM is picking these gems. Year in and year out in the draft. Why had the Steelers what's the main reason to Steelers have been able to get this great wide receiver production out of the draft of the last decade? Well, you know, they have had some misses. You know Marcus wheat and I believe with second round third round Sammy coach was third round. No, all of them have hit But you know, for the most part, you're right. And the G M. Ah, I'm just he's been the only constant. They have had a lot of scouts that have been there for a long time. But I I just got to believe it's the GM and, um they could have used a running back. JK Dobbins would still look very good in that lineup, but man Chase Claypool. He's a big man who could run deep fits in perfectly with his attitude. He's a tough guy on special teams. Yeah, there's a great pick. Great pick. I don't know what the secret sauce is. Kevin Colbert. Kevin Colbert probably has a better idea, but he's way too humble to take the credit, so it probably will never be known exactly why they do nail these wide receivers. We have a minute left. So here's a chance that's the holiday season. Want to tell us about Polamalu? You know, I think it's the defining book of that era. When the Steelers won three Super Bowls. They were driven by defense as much has been helped them. It was a defense driven team, and he's the only Hall of Famer. Probably gonna be the only Hall of Famer from that defense. And he was You know, we'd make a case later in a book that he was the Holy spirit of that defense. I have some religious guises. That is going too far. Some of them said Yeah, but some of them said he was a small voice of God on that team. He was he was, He was the voice. He was the quiet, meek guy. Who turned it on on the field of just such an interesting persona in Pittsburgh, and I my intention when I wrote it was for kids to read this kids of all ages because It's not a challenge book, but I think he's the perfect role model and he was so mischievous and such a prankster that there's a lot of funny stories that go along with this guy who we consider a monk. Just how spiritually he wa so it is. Just a complex, interesting person is 430 pages. It just blows by. It really does. It's not. It's not burdensome, not onerous, but it doesn't define It's going to be the definitive book of that. That decade of excellence by the Steelers and their defense, All right, we look forward to reading it. Good Christmas present. The name of the book is top Palla. Mollo, The author is Jim Wechsel of Steelers Digest. We thank you. Jim have a safe and half the happy holiday season and hope talking again soon. And right now, you could only get it..
