PSN Poll Question: Who is Pitt’s QB of the Future?

PSN Poll Question: Who is Pitt’s QB of the Future?

Last season, when Kenny Pickett got hurt and had to miss time, Nick Patti filled in, helping the Panthers earning wins over UCF and Delaware.

Earlier this season, when Pickett missed one play after taking a big hit, it was Davis Beville that filled in at quarterback.

Saturday against Boston College, Beville left the bench first after Pickett was injured once again, but after a timeout, Pitt instead went with Joey Yellen to lead the offense.

It doesn’t seem that there is a clear successor at this point in the mind of Pitt’s coaches when it comes to who will play quarterback after Pickett’s time is up, and Saturday showed that time could come at any time, with Pickett missing the end of one series and then returning, significantly hobbled by an ankle injury.

Given Pickett’s difficulty in getting around in the second half of the game, it’s not out of the question that he might not be able to play in Saturday’s game at Miami.

Our PSN Poll Question is, who should be the next quarterback up after Pickett, whenever that time comes?

Who do you think is Pitt's quarterback of the future?

This is just another reason why Narduzzi needs to go. He is so indecisive when it comes to making decisions with the Offense. Just like the questionable call of tying the game on the foot of Kessman. Should have went for 2 and the win. Take a chance, Narduzzi!

BTW, did everyone catch that Steelers game yesterday? Was it me, or did their offense look a lot like Pitt’s did a few years ago…oh that’s right, Matt Canada is on the staff…It PAYS to have good coaches I guess.

It would be very ironic if Canada took Narduzzi’s job after Narduzzi talked trash on him at the Nike clinic.

Section 122 wants Narduzzi out so bad its funny.

Anyway Joey Yellen is prob QB2 now because he has some more experience with the playbook. Beville has a year on him. Whipple’s offense seems complicated and it prob took a work in progress for Yellen.

I’d settle for Pinnock on the bench and Borbely applying for unemployment.

Who would you start over Pinnock? I think he will play in the NFL.

Narduzzi’s scheme puts him one on one every play so he will get beat. I am not saying that is the correct thing to do but it is a reality of our situation. If someone else was out there besides Pinnock we would be in way worst shape.

You obviously do not believe what your eyes are seeing. Or you are not watching Pinnock chase his man over the goal line after giving another 6.

Opponents seem to be able to figure out Whipple’s offense with 4 practice days and a walk through so how hard can it be?

Yea maybe our execution is not there but the professions a QB goes through are more difficult. Kenny needs to make a read at the line and decide who gets the ball.

A lot of QBs in college get to the line get set and let the sideline make the check at the line.

Maybe we should just do that idk.

Yellen needs to add some more bulk. He looked like a stork out there. He better have a quick release or behind this O-line, he will be scrambling for his life.

Pickett is the BEST QB since Dan Marino. He has a quick release, pretty strong arm, accuracy, and can run just enough. Is he perfect, NO, but he’s pretty damn good. We have a terrible O-line, no running game, no TEs, and WRs who drop everything. Add in a terrible OC who won’t let him throw over the middle. I just hope we get a better OC, who lets our speed players play in open space. Whipple may be a great QB coach, but he’s still play calling from the 1980’s.

He is gritty as hell, but sometimes throws late and gets his receivers killed.

None of those 3 are the QB for the future

Anyone who believes a coaching change would “set the program back years and years”… Not if you get the right fit. Please see what Luke Fickel has done in his first 2 years at Cincinnati. Same with Mack Brown at unc in less than two years. Narduzzi has had 6 YEARS! And just what would get set back? A ceiling of 8 wins? I like Narduzzi as a person and can always root for an Italian from Youngstown. But it’s been 6 years, has never cracked the Top 20 nor won more than 8 games. He’s done better with keeping… Read more »
