He's doubling down.

It's becoming more and more obvious that analyst Colin Cowherd is not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett. 

Having already gone on the record as saying that he has doubts on whether or not the 2nd year quarterback is the one to be able to take the Steelers back to the postseason for the first time since franchise legend Ben Roethlisberger retired, he doubled down on the criticism by taking it a step further. 

While he was sure to say that Pickett was "good", he doesn't believe that he possesses "greatness" within him while also noting that the team has never won a championship without a Hall of Fame quarterback.

“It all comes down to Kenny Pickett,” Cowherd said on his The Herd radio show. “I don’t see greatness. I see very good.”

“I think Kenny Pickett has a chance to be a very good quarterback. Good B, B-plus guy. Maybe a little more mobile Kirk Cousins. A much more accurate throwing Dak Prescott. Somewhere in that mix.”

“Pittsburgh’s history is they go to Super Bowls and win them with a great quarterback in his physical prime,” Cowherd said. “I see Kenny Pickett as a good quarterback about a year away from his physical prime.”

It will certainly take a while for Pickett to achieve the glory that icons like Roethlisberger and Terry Bradshaw have led the Steelers to during their respective careers, but is there any reason to doubt that he could eventually get there? For Cowherd, apparently he's not seeing it. Can Pickett change his mind this season?
