Mike Tomlin

While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky did not have a terrible game on Thursday night, throwing for 207 yards with no turnovers while rushing for a touchdown, there seems to be a consensus in the NFL world that rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett would give the team a better chance to win. But it’s become clear that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin doesn’t see it that way.

After Thursday night’s loss to the Cleveland Browns, Tomlin was asked by reporters if he would consider making a change at quarterback due to Trubisky’s mediocre performance and he shot down that idea rather firmly, saying “the answer to that question is definitively no.”

“I’m not in that mindset,” Tomlin said in a video shared by CBS Sports. “I’m interested in reviewing this tape and looking at the totality of it and figuring out how we collectively get better. So, the answer to that question is definitively no.”

So far this season, Trubisky is 1-2 on the season with a season-opening win against the Cincinnati Bengals and back-to-back losses to the New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns. So far this year, he’s completed 60.2 percent of his passes for 569 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.

Trubisky has certainly not been terrible, but that hasn’t stopped Steelers fans from calling for Pickett, and that will likely continue the rest of the season until a change is made.
