Terry Bradshaw: Kenny Pickett is the Steelers’ Answer at QB

If you came out of Saturday believing more in Kenny Pickett after watching Mitch Trubisky play his second straight full game of football, that could be an argument to be made that he could be the answer. Former Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw is in that boat.

On NFL Kickoff, Bradshaw broke down just what he believes is the problem with the Steelers, and he points to the poor offensive line as the main culprit for their struggles. Bradshaw wants the Steelers to go out and draft an offensive lineman to help protect Pickett, who he views as the answer.

“They have got to draft offensive linemen and protect their quarterback,” Bradshaw said. “Kenny Pickett is the answer at quarterback, and you’ve got running backs who can run the football but you’re not giving them a crease. You’ve got to improve that offensive line.”

Broderick Jones looks like a piece of the future. James Daniels and Isaac Seumalo are a nice one-two pairing at guard. But the center position and left tackle spots remain black holes. When the snaps are not errant and off the mark, Mason Cole was destroyed in this game by Grover Stewart and DeForest Buckner. Then, he committed an unnecessary hold that stopped Jaylen Warren’s toss play from succeeding. Pittsburgh has seen him hurt too many plays this year. He is tanking the group.

Bradshaw is not off the mark that this team needs another investment in the offensive line. His point about Pickett is up in the air, but the team has to invest in whoever the next quarterback is, whether that is Pickett or not, to boost this offense. With how up and down they are right now, that is a must-add, particularly at both of those spots moving forward. It seems like all that group can do is go up at this point.
