Colin Cowherd: “The one legendary franchise that everybody thinks is really going to be good this year, and I don’t, is the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have them at 7-9. I no longer think of the Steelers as a great organization. To be a great organization you have to be an ‘A’ at owner, an ‘A’ at GM, an ‘A’ at quarterback, and an ‘A’ at coach. I think Mike Tomlin is going to be a great TV analyst , he’s a great guy, and at moments I like him, but he’s kind of sloppy and light on the details. When he faced Belichick he was completely out-coached, and I never felt that way when Andy Reid faced Belichick, never felt that way when Doug Pederson faced Belichick, never felt that way when Tony Dungy faced belichick, and I never felt that when Pete Carroll faces Belichick. Big Ben is 38 years old, often injured, high on the drama, doesn’t have a star at receiver, offensive line is aging, and he doesn’t work very hard in the offseason. I have them finishing third in their division.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the Pittsburgh Steelers have taken a step back as an organization the last few seasons, as Colin details why not only is he buying Mike Tomlin as a top-shelf NFL head coach, but he's not buying 38-year-old Ben Roethlisberger as a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback anymore.
Check out the video above as Colin says he doesn't think the Steelers are a 'great' organization anymore from top to bottom, and explains why he's predicting the team finishes 7-9 and third in the AFC North behind the Ravens and Browns in 2020.
