The Pittsburgh Steelers lost 29-17 on Thursday night but can now look forward to something of a mini bye week before they take on the New York Jets on October 2. If the team had any plans to make any changes to say quarterback, now would be the time to do it.
But head coach Mike Tomlin put any thought of that to rest in his postgame press conference on Thursday night. When asked if he would use this time to change at quarterback or even offensive playcalling, his response was “definitely no.”
Now that’s not to say between now and next week something couldn’t change but at least for now, quarterback Mitch Trubisky and offensive coordinator Matt Canada are safe.
Pittsburgh’s offense actually got off to a hot start on Thursday night before fizzling out at the end of the first half and never getting on track after halftime. This was in spite of a solid effort by an offensive line showing real growth.
Do you think Trubiksy will start against the Jets or will the team go with rookie Kenny Pickett? Let us know in the comments below.
