The Pittsburgh Steelers might seem like a team who’s making improvements after their win during Week 10.
However, that win came with plenty of things to be worrying about going into Week 11.
One of those things is quarterback Kenny Pickett.
When talking about the rookie quarterback, what are three things they have to still worry about with him?
3. An Interception Problem
The term “Pickoff Pickett” has become a trend with Pickett.

This comes from his first NFL pass being an interception, and many other of his passes being picked off.
If he can’t stop the interceptions consistently, his interceptions will be something very worrisome.
2. He Isn’t Scoring Many Touchdowns
Besides all his interceptions, Pickett is having some issues scoring touchdowns.
Welcome to the club, Kenny, having such a low membership we have some pretty cool perks. We have a zoom every Tuesday night, will nice to finally have a 3rd member, so tired of hearing about Jimmy’s ND glory days!! https://t.co/Flj7pGPhHK

Those issues put him in an exclusive, but bad, club among NFL rookie quarterbacks.
His two touchdowns over 195 passing attempts are the worst by a rookie quarterback since Jimmy Clausen in 2010.
With his performance, Pickett joins two other quarterbacks who were busts, meaning the Steelers should worry about him.
1. Pickett Isn’t The Quarterback Pittsburgh Needs
However, the biggest thing the Steelers need to worry about with Pickett is how he’s not the quarterback the team needs.
He’s not inspiring anyone in Pittsburgh, as he’s continuing to miss open receivers and easy touchdowns.
When the Steelers got him in the 2022 NFL Draft, they thought they were getting a touchdown machine.
However, Pickett has been a bust so far, and not performing like he did in his final year with the Pittsburgh Panthers.
This is the most worrisome thing about Pickett.
