    the article you linked says Kenny did PA in 18.1% of his snaps which ranks him 30th in the league.

    I saiid Steelers don’t do PA much. Your article proved my statement with stats. Thanks! You’re the best!

    Where you went wrong was not connecting my statement to the facts you googled. I can’t say why that happened , but seems like something is broken in your learning process.

    I've said before, there is a reason Pickens led the NFL in catching contested passes, our receivers get little separation. The throw Pickett had to make to Conor have int written all over it, but he threw a bullet between to receivers.

    I don't get the hate for Pickett and I assume he will continued to get bashed throughout the playoffs. All I know is we are SOL if Steelers keep Canada for the following reasons of QBs with good offense background HCs
    • Mahomes/Reid
    • Lawrence/Peterson
    • Burrows/Zak Taylor
    • Herbert/possible Sean Payton

    People like me? I'm not all over his jock. Have no interest in his jock. You may be into sniffing jocks but I am not. I do not ***** and moan about Pickett. But then reading might not be your strong point. At one time Pickett was a turnover machine. Those days are past. He's played as well as anyone can inspect with the coaching he has. As to Purdy turning out to be a flash in the pan that's entirely possible. However at this point that kid is playing light out and he deserves praise. I think I'm done talking with you. It's pointless and I prefer those posters on here that don't have to be right all the time and have some decorum in how they interact with others on the board.

    How is the line in front of him that means a lot considering we have a young line in front of Pickett. How fast are his receivers getting open, means a lot.

    Actually you didn’t. You said the Steelers never use play action.

    You did not say “don’t do much”

    You said “never”

    You were wrong

    Read your own post if you can

    Did not read all this thread but I love when a young QB has a great game and all of a sudden is the next Tom Brady. I'll wait and see how he does in Philly (if they play) before crowning him the next Brady or Joe Montana.

    Not sure anyone here wants to crown anything at all. He's Mister Irrelevant and is having a great run at this point. Not just one game. Can't you guys be happy about a kid playing like this and he came out of nowhere? Maybe he will never have another good year at QB. It happens. But for now I'm pulling for him to continue to play well.

    I’m just kidding with the gif.

    I haven’t really seen the kid play yet but he seems to be handling himself well by all accounts. Especially for the last pick of the draft.

    I think one guy here (not you) is over the top on him, he’s had one game over 300 yards, couple games under 200 yards and a few around 250 yards. Not exactly HOF stats and thats in a very friendly QB system.

    The team was 8-3 before he took over and he’s continued helping them win. Going to have a harder test next week, we’ll see how he responds to that challenge.

    I gave Purdy credit, literally stating " The kid is playing well" and "Congrats to him and SF".
    All I'm trying to say is his situation and team dynamic is nothing even close to KPs. Comparison is not fair or relevant imho.

    I will also say this, Purdy has not messed up and cost his team anything and that's probably the most important thing a rookie QB can accomplish. Regardless of his situation, it's an impressive feat.
    I would still like to see what he is when there's real adversity. He's had none of that to this point.

    I am except he is being used to pound their their endless sufferings on Pickett. It's an apples and oranges comparison, which people have noted, and I am rooting for Purdy and the 49ers to win it all. Why does any QB playing good during the season and now post season have to be non stop Kenny Bad.

    Just for a bit of perspective. Purdy is playing for a team that had favorable odds for a Championship preseason, with Trey Lance, with Jimmy G, pre CMC and even now with probably the best defense in the NFL currently. KP was running a team that was projected to be in the basement this year, had a terrible record when he took over. Not even close to a comparable situation.
    I think we are fine with KP.

    Exactly. People laugh at Me when I say I need to see 3-4 years from a Qb before I label them one way ,or the other.....
    I laugh harder when people label them with like 10 games. Lots of Wentz, Lamar, Baker, and so on lovers that just seemed to disappear later when more teams faced them, and got to know tendencies.

    Unless it’s a running QB, then you declare them a failure before they hit the field :taunt:

    No I declare that they won't be much more than any running Qb. Great highlights, and won't be around very long.
    Yes if You depend more on Your legs than Your arm....You will fail.

    At first I thought you were being sarcastic, then I realized that you are just an idiot.
