The Super Genius of Pittsburgh Sports.Full Bio



Here's an excerpt from my latest Trib column:

Except for those three interceptions, the Steelers' offense looked more dynamic with Mitch Trubisky at quarterback. (Yeah, I know...other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?)

With Trubisky at QB Sunday, the Steelers registered 22 first downs and had zero three-and-outs.

The ball moved. There was intent. A little bit of quick strike. Not just trying to survive via protecting the ball. Not just bland game management.

Trubisky trusted receivers to make plays, most notably George Pickens in single coverage. (Pickens' two longest receptions this year have been thrown by Trubisky.)

There's more to quarterbacking than just not throwing interceptions. Trubisky reminded us of that. While throwing too many interceptions, unfortunately.

For Steelers Nation, Trubisky is today's Great Satan. (He temporarily replaces offensive coordinator Matt Canada.) But if Trubisky throws even one less interception and the Steelers beat Baltimore, we're debating if Trubisky or Pickett should start at Carolina Sunday. It's a fine line.
