The 2022 NFL season is about to kickoff, but some teams are still not prepared for it. This is the Pittsburgh Steelers' case, as they have doubts in one of the most important aspects of the team: the starting quarterback role.
For this campaign, multiple teams will have some interesting battles for the starting quarterback role and the Steeles are one of them. Without Ben Roethlisberger, who retired last year, the team will have to select a new player to command the offense in 2022.
After 17 seasons, Big Ben decided to hang his cleats and end his successful career. But this move left a big hole for the Steelers, who didn't think of a good transition for the quarterback and now they will try some new pieces this season.
Mitch Trubisky or Kenny Pickett? Steelers still have doubts for the starting quarterback role
Days away from the beginning of the 2022 NFL season, Mike Tomlin, Steelers' head coach, still has huge doubts between Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett for the starting quarterback role.
"Like I told you guys the other week, we're not going to make knee-jerk reactions and statements following a performance. We'll go through our proper, professional procedure. We'll evaluate the game," said Tomlin to reporters after Tuesday's practice. "We'll meet with our front office people. We'll have discussions. We'll talk internally. We'll talk external possibilities. We'll go through our normal procedure this time of year, and we'll disclose it to you at our leisure, to be quite honest with you."
The reports say that the most probable starter will be Mitch Trubisky thanks to his experience, but these doubts from Mike Tomlin could mean that Kenny Pickett is working well despite being a rookie.
