The Pittsburgh Steelers offense has been a major disappointment to start the season and it has a lot of fans already calling for the team’s first round pick Kenny Pickett to see the field right now.

And according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Steelers fans may get their wish.

Per the report:

The Steelers have not only a backup but a starter in waiting. A first-rounder who became popular as the starting quarterback for the local college team, and whose name has been chanted by the paying customers both in the preseason and regular season.

As one league source explained it to PFT, Kenny Pickett is ready to go.

The Steelers may be ready to move Trubisky to the bench. Although complaints have emerged about playcalling, receivers are saying they’re open. Which means the plays are working. The process for getting them the ball is not.

Whether its tonight, next week or the week after, Kenny Pickett will see the field sooner than you think especially if the Steelers continue to struggle offensively.
