🏈 Former Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart isn’t worried about George Pickens. Stewart said on 93.7 the Fan that he considered Pickens’ reaction to not getting the football a competitor’s reaction, and not a diva’s reaction. “You can’t beat the kid up. He’s not a diva.”
🏈 Ben Roethlisberger also chimed in on Pickens’ situation during his Footbahlin podcast.
🏈 His struggles against the Steelers were the final straw, as the Atlanta Falcons have benched quarterback Marcus Mariota for rookie Desmond Ridder out of Cincinnati. The Steelers held Mariota to 13 of 24 for 167 yards, one touchdown and the game-sealing interception.
