The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered their second consecutive defeat in the NFL this season, after they lost 29-17 to the Cleveland Browns on Week 2. This has raised question marks on their starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s credentials.

The argument has already started whether up and coming rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett should start for the Steelers in their upcoming fixture against the New York Jets. However, head coach Mike Tomlin seems to have no doubt as to who should be the starter for the next game despite disappointing results.

The Steelers’ head coach Tomlin, claimed that he will continue to back 28-year-old Mitch Trubisky as the leader of the men in offense to start at the position cometh the Week 3 fixture of this NFL season.

In all fairness, Mitch Trubisky showed his brilliance in the first half of the game against the Browns but his performance tailed off towards the third and the fourth quarters which urged people to raise the question. The Pittsburgh Steelers were leading the Browns at that point by a margin of 14-13 following which everything went haywire for the side from the AFC North division.

“I’m not in that mindset,” Tomlin said while speaking with reporters after the defeat. “I’m interested in reviewing this tape and looking at the totality of it and figuring out how we collectively get better. So, the answer to that question is definitively no.”

Despite the doubters questioning Mitch Trubisky’s spot in the starting lineup, the quarterback had his career best performance as he registered a total of 207 yards alongside scoring a touchdown in the first half.
