The Steelers are expected to have a down season and if that prediction comes true, many fans will blame these scapegoats.
The Steelers seem to have a handful of people entering each season that will struggle to impress fans. People within the organization start behind the eight ball for a wide array of reasons. These people could be coaches, front office guys, or even the players that hop onto the field on gamedays.
When things start to go south during a football calendar for a club, finger-pointing is something that many do. Fans especially want to know the source of reasoning behind why their favorite team is not winning more games. That could happen this season with the amount of turnover that has happened this past offseason for the black and gold.
Most experts do not see this club doing a lot of winning in 2022. That does not mean that they could not overcome these odds, as they even accomplished that last season. There will be many questions and concerns from the fanbase if this club struggles during its upcoming campaign and some might even get more attention than others.
Kevin Colbert could be blamed after leaving the Steelers via retirement
Kevin Colbert made the list? Yes, he did. Many might wonder why; well he constructed this football team before he retired following the draft. He will be calling Canton home for eternity one day, but that does not mean that he did not make any faults.
On paper, it seems like he did a nice job of filling this roster with good enough players to help this team compete in 2022. It will take some time to find out if that vision from paper will transition to the field during the year. If this team struggles and his final draft class is sub-par, then fans might remember him with a little bit of a sour note at the end of his career.
