The Pittsburgh Steelers decided to entrust their offense to Mitch Trubisky when they could have brought in other quarterbacks at short notice.
The Steelers have seen Mitch Trubisky play three games as quarterback. And they now have three games worth of movies to prove he shouldn’t be their starting quarterback.
It may be too soon to start rookie Kenny Pickett, but Pittsburgh fans are counting down the hours until he can take on that offense and salvage the Trubisky experience.
Trubisky had his best game as a Steeler Thursday night in football against the Browns. It was a 20-of-32, 207-yard, zero-touchdown dud performance.
If that’s the best he has, then Pittsburgh really missed the mark when they signed him for the other options available at quarterback this offseason.
3 Quarterbacks Steelers could have signed in place of Mitch Trubisky
Jacoby Brissett was intended to be a backup for the Browns until the team traded for Deshaun Watson, sent Baker Mayfield to Carolina and then lost Watson to an 11-game suspension.
Now he’s “the guy” in Cleveland, at least for the next few months.
Brissett has already proven to be a more capable QB than Trubisky. He completed a higher percentage of his passes, has a better quarterback rating, and is averaging one full yard more per attempt.
Brissett isn’t anyone’s franchise quarterback, but he didn’t need to be in Pittsburgh anyway. The Steelers just needed someone to keep things going while Kenny Pickett was given a chance to develop.
Based on early returns, Brissett is in a better position to fill a temporary gap than Trubisky. He outplayed the Steelers’ QB when they met Thursday night.
