REPORT: Steelers “Expected to Move Forward” With 2022 Rookie QB Kenny Pickett

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Kenny Pickett era starts now according to a report by NFL Network insider, Ian Rapoport:

Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin wouldn’t name Pickett the starter on Sunday, but it sounds like things have changed.

Pickett completed all his passes in his NFL debut replacing Mitch Trubisky at halftime, finishing with 10 completions to Steelers players and throwing three to New York Jets defenders on Sunday at Acrisure Stadium. He also ran for a pair of scores, once on a sneak and once on a bootleg. He seemed to provide a spark to the Steelers offense with his edge and poise:

Pickett will get time to prepare for his first NFL start on the road against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.

Hello Steeler Nation! I hail from the great city of Kingston, Ontario, Canada, hometown of The Tragically Hip. I grew up a Steelers fan because my uncle is and he used to live there. I saw the Steelers beat the Bengals at Heinz Field in 2017 in my only visit to Pittsburgh.

    “Mike Tomlin wouldn’t name Pickett the starter on Sunday, but it sounds like things have changed.”

    How stupid is this statement. NOTHING changed. No coach is going to make an announcement about the next game just MINUTES after finishing the last game. Based on what transpired on Sunday, it is easy to figure out that Tomlin and the Steelers will start Pickett moving forward, but there was ZERO chance he was going to announce that on Sunday. If for no other reason because he hadn’t even had a chance to talk to either quarterback yet.

    Stop making it seem like this is more than it is.
