The Pittsburgh Steelers did not get off to the best possible start. The offensive has struggled, and they cannot push. Mitch Trubisky was unproductive during the games. If the quarterbacks cannot impress, the post-Big Ben era might be a catastrophe. However, some speculate that Kenny Pickett will start in 2022. The fans — even Ben Roethlisberger shared their thoughts on the matter, both positive and negative.

Mitch Trubisky has not established himself as a pioneer since the start. The franchise’s 1-2 record speaks for itself. Now, there are rumors that they will give Kenny Pickett the reins. Many Black and Gold fans want the 2022 Draft pick to play upfront instead of the usual opener.

Ben Roethlisberger saw it coming

Ben Roethlisberger mentioned, “When they drafted Kenny, half the-maybe more than half the city wanted him to start right from the get-go. Even before he played it down just because he’s a Pitt kid. Mitch comes with some baggage from Chicago and some stuff. But, give the man a chance, I thought. We said at any point if he doesn’t play well, it’s gonna be boobirds. It’s gonna be Kenny Kenny. And today, we heard it and they chanted Kenny and we had talked about this very early on and knew that it was gonna come. I just hate it for Mitchell because I don’t think it is fair yet.”

The Steelers are at a crossroads because the organization prefers Pickett over Trubisky. PFT’s Mike Florio cited the reason as frustration over the QB1 because he does not deliver the ball to the wide-open guys.
