The Pittsburgh Steelers had themselves a new starting quarterback in the form of 1st round draft pick Kenny Pickett, who took over from the struggling veteran Mitchell Trubisky earlier in the 2022 NFL season. 

Steelers fans are warming up more and more to Pickett as their starting quarterback, and they're going to like even more what he had to say about how he feels playing for the iconic franchise.

"I'm just happy doing this. I genuinely like doing it. I like being here. In order to be great you have to have a love for the game. I want to be one of the best. I know what I have to do and there's a lot of things that we need to do as a team to get us to our goals. I feel like it all starts with me and my play. I've got to be the guy that takes us there. I'm ready to take it on."

"We just wanted to find a few days in the offseason, before spring practice started, where we could get down to Florida to work out and hang out off the field," said Pickett. "Spend some time together and just build that rapport that we're going to need this season. It was an awesome couple of days. We got a ton of work done and it was awesome to see the guys."

"In college you spend a lot of time off the field together, whether it's study hall or on the weekends and everyone's in the same spot. But in the NFL, it's kind of hard. Everyone has a family. Everyone's off doing their own thing. It's nice whenever you can get guys together and kind of go back to those college, team bonding days where you can really hang out and get to know each other."
