Colin Cowherd: “Jason McIntyre LOVES Pittsburgh this year but my takeaway is: it’s all on Kenny Pickett. You can do EVERYTHING right in the NFL, Pittsburgh is a great example. Great owner, great culture, really good coach, they draft well, they have continuity: ownership, culture, GM... It is a brilliantly run business for 50 years. They’ve done everything right but they’ve only won Super Bowls, since the 70s, when they have a great, legendary quarterback in his physical prime. Big Ben in 2005 and 2008, and Terry Bradshaw in the 70s. They got to another Super Bowl and got blown out, didn’t have a great quarterback [Neil O’Donnell]. They’ve gotten to AFC Championships, maybe didn’t have a great quarterback. That’s the only time they win Super Bowls. It doesn’t matter how great TJ Watt, Cam Heyward, or Minkah Fitzpatrick are, it all comes down to Kenny Pickett. I don’t see greatness. I see very good. Maybe we can blame the offensive coordinator. I think Kenny Pickett has a chance to be a very good quarterback, a ‘B’ to ‘B+’ guy—maybe a little more mobile Kirk Cousins, and a much more accurate Dak Prescott... I could be wrong, maybe he is great, he had moments last year. Kenny Pickett could be a really nice quarterback but I don’t see ‘great.’” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he doesn’t see the Pittsburgh Steelers as legitimate Super Bowl contenders this season.
Check out the video above as Colin details why he doesn't see ‘greatness’ with Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett, and certainly not on the same level as former Super Bowl-winning Steelers QBs Ben Roethlisberger and Terry Bradshaw at this point in his career.
