Mitchell Trubisky Has Blunt Admission On The 'Kenny Pickett' Chants In Pittsburgh

Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky

Mitchell Trubisky and the Steelers offense was wildly ineffective vs. the Patriots of New England on Sunday. Trubisky had just 168 yards passing with one touchdown and one pick in a 17-14 loss at Acrisure Stadium. 

It appears fans are starting to get impatient about the team's current quarterback situation. During Sunday's AFC battle, fans began chanting Kenny Pickett's name, hoping it would be enough to persuade Mike Tomlin to make a change; he didn't. 

Trubisky was asked about the Pickett chants after the game. He admits he has to work hard to block out all the outside noise. 

"It is what it is," Trubisky said after the game, via NFL.com. "You just block it out and play football."

Yikes. A quarterback is never in a good position when his own team's fans are cheering against him. With that being said, the reality is it's only a matter of time before Kenny Pickett is running the show. 

Mike Tomlin has nothing to lose by replacing Trubisky with the younger and more explosive Pickett. He can use his legs to pick up yards and isn't afraid to sling the ball downfield. 

If Trubisky keeps playing conservative football, Tomlin has to make a change here soon. The fans are going to keep chanting Pickett's name until he does.
