Mitchell Trubisky is the starting quarterback for the Steelers

The veteran will be well in charge of the attack of Pittsburgh to begin the season.

While recently drafted Kenny Pickett has delivered a promising preseason, Mike Tomlin has long been hesitant to name a starter on his offense to face the Bengals in Week 1.

Finally, according to Pro Football Focus, the franchise has released a roster report where Mitchell Trubisky is listed as No. 1. The veteran had already been named as one of five team captains by his teammates earlier in the day. . A beautiful alignment of the planets.

The new Pittsburgh recruit had even been dubbed by Ben Roethlisberger in his Footbahlin’ podcast this weekend. If the future Hall of Famer complimented Pickett, for him the best is that the rookie stays on the bench a little to learn, while Mitch Trubisky takes the reins of the Pittsburgh attack. The management of the Steelers has obviously made the same analysis.

« In my opinion, Mitchell Trubisky is the starter, » Roethlisberger said. “He should start. I think he’s a veteran, he already has experience. In my opinion, it represents the best chance of winning right away. »

Pickett therefore remains in a position of prospect, since he is listed third quarterback behind Mason Rudolph who takes the role of Trubisky’s understudy.
