Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubesky had a tough day on the field on Sunday and it wasn’t easier for the home fans when they chanted “Kenny” over and over again. Fans were clamoring for rising midfielder Kenny Beckett to take center stage but Trubisky was never substituted in the 17-14 loss.
after the game, Trubisky sings the hymns.
“That’s what it is,” he said. You just stop him and keep playing football.”
Beckett was the first quarterback selected in the 2022 draft and is the presumed future reference caller for Pittsburgh, but Trubisky won the starting job during training camp. Since being drafted with the No. 2 pick by the Bears in 2017, Trubisky has had a rough start to his career.
After little success in Chicago, he signed with the Bills in 2021 to be Josh Allen’s backup and signed a deal with Pittsburgh in March. But the second week’s loss was ugly. Trubisky finished for just 168 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
“We can be better at everything,” Trubesky said. “I could be better at making the decision. We had some missed opportunities due to getting lost. We had a couple who weren’t on the same page. Bottom line, we have to score more points.”
