Mitchell Trubesky tries to fend off rookie Kenny Beckett while facing the Steelers Brown at Amazon

It took less than three quarters in Pittsburgh Steelers home opener. The Fans started cheering For the beginners’ first round, choose Kenny Beckett.

There will be no patience in Pittsburgh for Mitchell Trubesky. The fan base knows him only from the time he failed with Chicago Bears And a cheap contract last season as the Steelers were figuring out what to do in the middle after Ben Roethlisberger retired.

Beckett is the new and exciting option, and the fact that he played at Pete makes waiting for Steelers fans even more difficult. That’s why the cheers weren’t surprising, even if they came so early in the season.

“That’s what it is,” Trubisky said of Beckett’s cheers, According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,. “You just stop him and keep playing football.”

Maybe it’s better for Trubisky to play on the road this week. The Steelers travel to face Cleveland Browns Thursday night on Amazon Prime In a match between two teams that are challenged in attack.

If the Steelers struggle to score again, those cheers will rise even louder during their next home game.

When does Kenny Beckett play?

Mike Tomlin doesn’t seem to care much about pressure to play in the first round in the quarterback.

Before the season, it was leaked to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer that Tomlin’s plan was so Beckett sits all season long. That would be exceptionally rare. Where Aaron RodgersDraft year 2005, only two first-round quarterbacks didn’t start at least one game as a rookie. List Brady Quinn and Jake Locker. Everyone else started at least once.

Tomlin may not want to make a change, but he may have to. Trubisky has 362 yards and a 76.1 pass rating. The Steelers don’t have a good offensive line, but they do have players with good skills. The Steelers wouldn’t be able to last long with Trubisky if he didn’t even get close to 200 yards per game. Last week, the Steelers didn’t move the ball much in their 17-14 loss to the New England Patriots, and frustration grew.

Maybe Tomlin was right and Beckett isn’t ready yet. At some point, it doesn’t matter. First round picks don’t sit down. Trubisky’s reputation as a player, and not doing enough after the Bears drafted him second overall, doesn’t help him. Steelers fans are already pressing Tomlin to make a change. Trubisky knows he has to start playing better, and that should happen soon.

Brown has offensive issues too

The good news for Trubesky is that he probably won’t be overshadowed by the other midfielder on Thursday night.

But the Browns also have their offensive issues Jacobi Brisset It was a tough match against New York Jets last week. I was overwhelmed when Brown somehow blew up a 13-point lead In the last two minutes.

Cleveland awaits Deshaun Watson, who is serving an 11-game suspension. Until then, crime will be limited. I’ll be built around their jogging backs Nick Chubb And the cream hunt For most of this season, Brissett will be asked to do his part. That means they’ll be playing some ugly low-goal games before Watson returns. They’ll be fine with that as long as they win each other and stay in the playoffs.

Brissett doesn’t have a lot of pressure when it comes to losing his job. Brown has no other viable option. And everyone knows Brissett will be back on the bench when Watson returns. Trubisky is not in this position. That adds an extra layer of drama to Thursday night’s game.
