Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is still with Mitch Trubisky but O.J. Simpson doesn’t agree.
During the team’s second loss of the season against the Browns on Thursday night, Trubisky went 20 for 32 for 207 yards and no touchdowns.
Trubisky generated just 207 yards on 32 attempts this evening and 36 of them required one of the literal greatest catches in the history of the league

Simpson, who has occasionally analyzes what’s going in the NFL on his Twitter account, posted a video explaining why Trubisky should be benched for Trubisky.
“I don’t see these guys being inspired by their quarterback play,” Simpson said. “I don’t know what Kenny Pickett is able to do, but I’m willing to bet anybody that he’ll score more than four touchdowns in the next three games.”
“[The] problem is Pittsburgh isn’t going to win any 14-10 games. They’re gonna have to score points to win, and I just don’t see that happening with Trubisky.”

While speaking to the media, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was adamant that he was sticking Trubisky and wasn’t thinking about a change.
“I’m not in that mindset,” Tomlin said. “I’m interested in reviewing this tape and looking at the totality of it and figuring out how we collectively get better. So, the answer to that question is definitively no.”
Will Mike Tomlin and the Steelers consider making a QB change?

Maybe Tomlin should listen to The Juice on this one.
