The Steelers are currently 1-2 going into the Week 4 of NFL. In addition to a disappointing start, the fashion of these losses has also unleashed an outcry from the Steeler Nation. Even though the fans are frustrated, the new quarterback in town, Mitch Trubisky, has pretty much blocked all the noise. Following his recent comments, the fan base has gone into a frenzy.

With the player defending his quality teammates and staff, one fan pointed out what he thinks the problem is with the offense

This other fan thinks that Trubisky is simply ‘uninspiring’

Furthermore, defending players around him and his one fan had this to ask

The fans are fuming with what they saw against the New England Patriots and recently against the Cleveland Browns.  Browns played the black and gold on Thursday night football. Initially, getting off to a decent start, Pittsburgh was leading 14-13 going into the 2nd half. However, what happened in the 3rd and 4th quarters were a different story. Failing to score until very late in the last quarter, the offense simply folded. Looking at some of the plays by Trubisky and his peers, it’s clear to say a lot of plays weren’t executed well. A general lack of identity and unity was plaguing the offense.

In the end, the Steelers lost to the Browns with a score of 17-29.

Should Mitch Trubisky be dropped for Kenny Pickett?

Following the statement, one fan has come asking for a change.

They drafted Kenny Pickett in the first round of the NFL draft 2022 with the 20th overall pick. The former Pitt Panther’s quarterback is an exciting prospect.
