The GM Shuffle breaks down the Steelers’ George Pickens problem

Michael Lombardi is joined by Femi Abebefe to discuss the Steelers Pickens problem and preview Week 16 of the 2023 NFL season — including the 49ers vs Ravens MNF showdown.

The Pittsburgh Steelers might have a George Pickens problem.

The talented second-year receiver has struggled this season thanks to Pittsburgh’s pitiful passing game, which has translated to issues surrounding Pickens’ effort level. That was highlighted by the pass-catcher’s failure to block for what should’ve been a Jaylen Warren rushing touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has addressed the issue but has said that the Steelers will still play Pickens even with his lack of effort.

What should the Steelers do about their talented but frustrating receiver? The GM Shuffle breaks it all down on their latest episode.

Listen to the episode below.
