First it was Jonathan Dwyer, then it was Stevenson Sylvester, and now Will Allen! La Toalla Terrible was on the scene at the South Side to investigate the “Revolving Door Phase of the Roethlisberger Era.”
While there he ran in to Steelers General Manager Cevin Kolbert and seemly stumbled on another great story while perhaps creating a third one of his own.
La Toalla asked the erstwhile General Manager, “Hey, what’s the deal with you giving these guys pink slips only to turn around with the welcome mat.”
- “Ah, it all comes down the record in this business,” Kolbert confided.
“So the 0-4 record gives us the ole ‘desperate measures for desperate measures’ routine?” continued the inquiry.

“So, what your saying is that if Zoltan Mesko doesn’t pick up his punting, we can expect a Daniel Sepulveda sighting on the South Side?” La Toalla suggested.
