Mitchell Trubisky is never going to be the long-term solution under center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, so it’s understandable that Steelers fans will continue to cry louder for rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett’s name each week, especially after a loss. That’s the case this week for the Steelers, who are coming off a 29-17 defeat at the hands of the Cleveland Browns on the road in Week 3.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, however, understands where the fans are coming from. While there are no serious discussions yet about Pickett taking over the quarterbacking reins from Trubisky, Tomlin knows that it will only fuel Pittsburgh diehards’ call for him to name Pickett the starter.
Tomlin has been Pittsburgh’s head coach since 2007. He has seen and heard it all from Pittsburgh fans.
