PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – In a Steelers season featuring far more losses than expected, The Fan’s Andrew Fillipponi believes that the biggest one may have happened off the field almost four years ago.

Doug Whaley spent 12 years with the Steelers organization as General Manager Kevin Colbert’s right-hand man.

Andrew calls Whaley “a guy who has been a Pittsburgher through and through.”

An Upper Saint Clair native who played at Pitt, Whaley is now the general manager in Buffalo and the Steelers will get a chance to view what he has been up to this week when the Bills roll into town.

Andrew makes a case for the timing of Whaley’s departure coinciding with the start of a decline in Steelers player evaluation competency.

The NFL is a copycat league and when you are successful like the Steelers have been for so long, other teams will try to mimic that success by hiring away the guys who know how to do things successfully.
