  1. This has nothing to do with Chris Hubbard , but it does have everything to do with the Steelers front office , blowing it and I do mean blowing it , with ex Cardinal safety Tyrann Matthew , aka the honey badger . This kid is a game changer and would have been a huge upgrade over Mike Mitchell or Robert Golden , who were both let go . The Steeler players were lobbying hard to get Matthew to come to the Steel city because they knew what this kid was . Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin didnt even give the kid a sniff . Nothing . You needed help at safety and this kid was just setting there waiting for a phone call that never came . Rest assured this will cost the Steelers . It was a stupid move that simply makes no sense . The kid signed with the Houston Texans for one year and seven million dollars . The Steelers could have easily afforded him with all the restructures they have been doing lately . Bottom line , this isnt 1979 anymore and that way of thinking has got to change in the Steelers front office . What worked back then doesnt always work that same way today . The Steelers flat out blew this one , period .
