Steelers won’t commit to Devlin Hodges at QB after four interception game
Devlin Hodges was terrible for the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night, and it’s thrown the team’s quarterback question right back to the forefront.
After winning his first three starts, the undrafted rookie tanked against Buffalo, throwing four interceptions to the best defense he’s faced yet. It was enough to lead the media to ask coach Mike Tomlin if the quarterback’s job was safe, which didn’t really get a yes or no answer.
“I am not getting into that, guys,” Tomlin said, via Chris Adamski of TribLive. “We just lost a football game. I’m not going to make an announcement every week or every time I stand in front of you guys in terms of who is playing quarterback or any other position for that matter.”
We know the Steelers have had no problems switching quarterbacks mid-season this year. The question is whether or not Hodges built up enough goodwill during his previous starts to keep the job. He didn’t play great, but he managed the team to victories, and Buffalo is a great defense. It’s a story worth watching this week.
