Steelers QB Trubisky
While I argued that the Steelers signing Mitchell Trubisky for the money they got him for was a good move, others seem to have vastly overrated the move. While he was a fine budget signing that could start in a pinch, treating him like he will be the starting quarterback long-term is unwise. There is little reason to believe that he will suddenly become a great quarterback after five seasons of mediocrity.
For starters, Kenny Pickett seems to be the biggest reason not to view Trubisky as anything other than a transitional player. The first-round investment is a hefty one, and long term he should be viewed as the guy for this team. As well, his play on the field hasn’t been anything special. He struggled with the Bears which led to the team not bringing him back. While he looked good with the Bills during the preseason, he certainly didn’t impress on the field.
Sure, there is an argument to be made that he is a good fit in this offense. Even more so, his tenure with the Bears never seemed like a great pairing. Even with all of that considered, it seems unlikely that Trubisky does a whole lot for this team. Odds point to him keeping the seat warm until Pickett is ready.
