Steelers Announce Official Starting Quarterback Decision For 2nd Preseason Game

One day it'll be the Kenny Pickett show in Pittsburgh; not yet. Mike Tomlin and the Steelers have made an official decision on their starting quarterback for the team's second preseason game. Mitchell Trubisky is the guy. 

The Steelers made a formal announcement this Thursday morning announcing Mitchell Trubisky as their starting quarterback for the team's second preseason game. Pittsburgh takes on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday. 

"In his press conference, Coach Tomlin announced that Mitch Trubisky will start at quarterback in Saturday’s preseason game against Jacksonville," the Steelers announced.

The real Steelers' quarterback mystery begins after Trubisky. Will Tomlin pull the trigger and give Pickett second-team reps or stick with Mason Rudolph?

Pickett shined in his preseason debut last week. The stadium chanted his name and went crazy during the drives he played. The city loves him and is ready to see him play. 

Trubisky is the more proven option, though. It makes sense that Tomlin is rolling with the former No. 2 overall pick for the time being.
