SJ - July 15, 2022

There will be a new starting quarterback in Pittsburgh for the first time in a longtime.  Tony Romo, who has become known for making predictions, was asked to make one on the Steelers quarterback competition between Mitchell Trubisky and rookie Kenny Pickett.

This might be one of the easier predictions he's made.  Romo told "The Zach Gelb Show" that he thinks Trubisky will win the starting job.

"I think you'll see Trubisky start.  I mean, like, once you've been in the league for a while, you have such an advantage over someone else coming in learning a system.  I mean, it's really hard for a youngster to learn.  When you have a guy who's been in the league for three or four years, I mean, he has a very big advantage on just terminology, communication in the huddle, just overall.  That'll be tough, I think, to start by that point. But it doesn't mean that he can't later on."

I think most people think Trubisky will be the Steelers Week 1 starter.  Whether he finishes the season as the starting quarterback is another question.  It wouldn't be shocking to see Pickett and his small hands get a look during the season.
