He's heard the chatter.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking to get back into the win column on Sunday when they host the New York Jets, and all indications are that it will once again be the maligned Mitchell Trubisky under center rather than Kenny Pickett.

Of course, the Steelers and head coach Mike Tomlin in particular have come under heavy scrutiny for not making the switch from Trubisky to Pickett, and the veteran QB is well aware of the criticism. However, for him, it's just simply part of being an NFL player. 

“It’s just part of the business,” Trubisky said Wednesday. “People talk when you’re not having the success they think you should have or we think we should have.”

“On the film, you’ve seen the improvements. We just haven’t been making those big plays or scoring as many points as I think we should have,” Trubisky said. “The plays are there. They’re on film. We just got to go make them." 

“We’re in the right place at the right time. We just got to come down and make the plays. It seems like the communication is there. We just got to go out and make it happen.”

Pittsburgh's offensive numbers aren't exactly overwhelming, with just over 24 total minutes of average offensive possession time.

“We’re closer. We’re not where we want to be,” Trubisky said. “I don’t think it’s a specific issue. I think we’re still a young group. We’re still molding and coming together. It’s going to happen for us. I have confidence in that.
