Ryan Clark is the latest media member to dismiss Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.
Rudolph may be a good college player at Oklahoma State, but he fell to the third round of 2018 NFL Drafts for a reason. He has the looks and all the physical traits of a franchise midfielder. However, it seems that he is just a member of the Steelers organization. When Ben Roethlisberger retired, Clark made a bold statement about what would happen if Rudolph started in 2022.
“If Mason Rudolph is the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers going into 2022, they’re no longer the Pittsburgh Steelers I love or the Pittsburgh fans love.”
Ryan Clark crushes Mason Rudolph as Pittsburgh Steelers’ next quarterback
The Steelers are in a terrible position in midfield. Rudolph is not a guy and Dwayne Haskins is not a guy at all. While they could try their luck in freelance company or arrange a blockbuster deal, odds are, the Steelers will need to find their guy the same way they found Big Ben. and Terry Bradshaw before: In Draft! Unfortunately, this is not a great draft for the quarterback.
Where necessary, at least a few quarterbacks will be removed and used in the first round, including Pitt Panthers star Kenny Pickett. Not everyone was sold to him, but Pitt’s final quarterback quartet with this much hype coming out is Dan Marino, whom the Steelers passed on in 1983. That’s a lot of Bubby. Bristers and Neil O’Donnells in between Bradshaw and Roethlisberger.
As far as Clark turning down the Steelers if they make it past Rudolph Week 1, who else will he root for? Will Clark become a media cardholder for Washington Command? Maybe he’ll just come back and be part of the Brian Kelly family in Baton Rouge? Either way, the Steelers will regress en masse if Rudolph is Pittsburgh’s Week 1 starting quarterback.
If the Steelers don’t address their midfield problems, they won’t be a problem going forward.
