Mitchell Trubisky Panned on Twitter for Uninspiring Play in Steelers’ Loss to Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky is not lighting it up through the air this year, and that trend continued in a 29-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday Night Football.

Trubisky finished 20-of-32 for 207 yards without touchdowns through the air, though he added a rushing score. He did nothing to improve the narrative that he’s a detriment to the Steelers offense.

Through three games, Trubisky now has thrown for 569 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while completing 60.2 percent of his passes. He’s averaging 189.7 yards per game and Pittsburgh’s offense appears like among the worst in the league.

The 28-year-old was likely to be considered a placeholder at quarterback until first-round pick Kenny Pickett was deemed ready for a few NFL action. With Trubisky playing just how he is, it may be smart to accelerate Pickett’s development by creating a switch under center.

NFL Twitter lit up Trubisky for another lifeless performance, with some wondering if his days because the starter are numbered:

EASILY had to spell it out Mitchell Trubisky with one word, and I couldnt pick all of the bad words, it will be uninspiring

Logan Reever @loganreever

#Steelers receivers dealing with Mitch Trubisky need to think much like girls of my senior high school dating career

Like what on the planet are you currently doing with this particular guy

Andrew Clay @AndrewClayTV

Trubisky could have “won” the starting job, but he’s on the verge of losing it now.

justin block @JBlock49

trubisky continues to be a miserable quarterback, hes forever late on his throws

Chris Mack @THEChrisMack

What pisses me off most is that should you were focused on redshirting a rookie QB, you didn’t have to spend $5mil on Trubisky. Stopgap QB had been internal & no worse than he. And you also could’ve used that $5mil to increase your OL investment.

Trubisky was a wasted signing.

Neal Coolong @NealCoolong

Three straight third and outs. There is no question this is actually the worst offense, and Mitch Trubisky may be the least effective quarterback, in the league in the fourth quarter.

James D Koh @JamesDKoh

In the event that you dont think Trubisky can convert a 4th and 6 with the the overall game at risk I dont know, call me insane but maybe head to your first round rookie

Johnny McGonigal @jmcgonigal9

watching Mitch Trubiskys first 3 games with the Steelers

Matt Verderame @MattVerderame

Trubisky avoiding middle of the field throws like it’s Chernobyl is often a tradition unlike any

Matt Eurich @MattEurich

Some individuals are still attempting to defend Trubisky despite the fact that hes over from Chicago.

Hes of low quality and that shouldnt matter anymore

Christopher Carter @CarterCritiques

Oh man. Mitch Trubisky threw it away just prematurily .. Johnson had him a large gain for field goal range.

CONTAIN THE Mayo @snowlikejonn

Zach Mullis @zmullis

NoLifeShaq @NoLifeShaq

Mitch Trubisky NOT IT!

Ahmed/The Ears/Symba Fan @big_business_

Mitch Trubisky gets paid millions to be garbage, life isn’t fair.

Dan Hanzus @DanHanzus

The Steelers know very well what they need to do, right? Time and energy to move the business forward in a meaningful way.

Skip Bayless @RealSkipBayless

Uh, Mike Tomlin: Time and energy to head to Kenny Pickett. Trubisky has some talent, but zero intangibles. Pickett oozes intangibles – leadership, football charisma, spark. You ought to be 0-3. Pickett time.

The Steelers have a streak of 15 straight winning seasons under head coach Mike Tomlin. It’s still early, but Trubisky is merely not playing winning football. It likely wouldn’t hurt to inject some new energy on offense by handing the reins to Pickett.

Pittsburgh includes a few extra days to create a decision on its quarterback situation, and it’s really worth taking time and energy to evaluate it if the team really wants to be successful in the years ahead.

It’ll be interesting to see who’s under center once the Steelers go back to action on Oct. 2 contrary to the NY Jets.
