Mitchell Trubisky: I Can Be Better With Decision Making

Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was left lamenting a poor showing which resulted in a Week 2 defeat to New England.

The Pittsburgh offense managed only 243 yards and one touchdown as the Patriots won 17 – 14. 

Mitchell Trubisky mustered 21-of-33 passes for 168 yards, one touchdown and an interception. On passes of ten or more yards, Mitchell Trubisky was 5-of-12 for 74 yards and an interception.

Trubisky says the Steelers need to make the most of the opportunities they have to score more points.

“We can be better at everything,” Trubisky said. “I can be better with decision making. We had some missed opportunities with missed throws. We had a couple where we weren’t on the same page. Bottom line, we’ve got to score more points.”

“I thought those were the critical weighty things where they were able to control the game, particularly in the fourth quarter as we were trying to regain control of it,” said coach Mike Tomlin. “They got propped up by those plays and we didn’t do what was required. We didn’t make the significant chunks or move the ball enough on offense. At the end we didn’t get the necessary stop on defense.”

Pittsburgh and Trubisky’s listless performance lead to the Steelers faithful chanting the name of local favorite Kenny Pickett.

Pickett, having gone to college in the area, is a rookie the fans are desperate to see on the field.

“It is what it is,” Trubisky said after the game. “You just block it out and play football.”
