‘A fish in water’: Steelers coach Mike Tomlin heaps praise on Kenny Pickett ahead of massive Week 8 clash vs. Eagles
Though the primetime Sunday night matchup in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins did not go their way, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had glowing remarks about his rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett when speaking to the media on Tuesday.
Putting an inverse spin on the idiomatic phrase, Tomlin called Pickett “a fish in water,” clarifying that the quarterback’s comfortability and poise in leading comeback efforts is “a natural act for him. He’s a competitor,” per Joe Rutter of The Tribune-Review.

While the numbers don’t show much encouragement, Pickett has displayed growth deemed satisfactory to the coaching staff in the 2022 NFL season. In a piece from team reporter Dave Lolley on the official Steelers’ website, Tomlin felt Pickett “was highly competitive” and that “he played to win” on Sunday, which is about all one can ask of a young signal-caller learning the professional game on the job.
Kenny Pickett is learning on the job. And so is much of the rest of the Steelers offense. That and more thoughts from a loss to the Dolphins.https://t.co/OoancEt3De

Kenny Pickett and the 2-5 Steelers will have another opportunity to progress in Week 8 as they set their sights on a matchup against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles fresh off of their bye week.
