GM Kevin Colbert Confident Steelers can Bounce Back in 2020

Published

Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert believes that the Steelers can turn things around in 2020.

After missing the playoffs each of the last two season, Colbert says that he feels more confident going into the 2020 season than he has in years past.

Colbert’s faith is not misguided, as the Steelers have a lot to be optimisitc about, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

With the emergence of outside linebacker T.J. Watt and the addition of safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Steelers defense became one of the NFL’s best, leading the league with 54 sacks and 38 takeaways.

Factor in the return of injured defensive end Stephon Tuitt, and the Steelers defense should be stout again next season.

Still, success for the Steelers in 2020 will come down to the health and performance of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who will be 38 years-old and coming off a season-ending elbow injury that sidelined him after just two games last year.
