Steelers followers freak out on Twitter after Kenny Pickett leads game-winning drive
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Kenny Pickett led a game-winning drive in his first skilled recreation in opposition to the Seahawks.
Stories of Pickett’s demise could have been significantly exaggerated.
Because the media does — myself included — we ran with rumors of poor play in observe from Pickett. In reality, he didn’t look excellent at the beginning of coaching camp, and he’s squarely behind the likes of Mitchell Trubisky and Mason Rudolph.
That’s the place he’ll keep, for now. However for the Steelers, it needs to be encouraging that their first-round rookie could make performs when it issues most.
Pickett led a game-winning drive in opposition to the Seahawks in his first profession preseason recreation. That drive was capped with a landing go to Tyler Vaughns.
Kenny Pickett throws game-winning landing for Steelers
Pickett has loads of stress sq. on his shoulders. The Pittsburgh Panthers product is well-known within the space, and made a large bounce in his senior season. The Pitt QB was invited to New York Metropolis for the Heisman ceremony, in the end dropping out to Bryce Younger of Alabama.
However that play was sufficient to persuade Kevin Colbert to draft Pickett within the first spherical. He was the one quarterback choice within the first spherical in what was thought of a weak class. But, Pickett is proving Pittsburgh proper via one recreation.
All Kenny Pickett does is win bets for me. I like him eternally

Yep, signal me up.
Steelers followers waited for that second since April, and Pickett delivered in an enormous manner.
Sure, it got here in opposition to backups and sure, Pickett should wait his flip to begin an actual recreation at Acrisure Stadium (nonetheless feels bizarre to say), but it surely’s a rattling good begin.
The Steelers may have their quarterback of the long run. Consistency is the following step. He received’t turn out to be Ben Roethlisberger in a single day.
