FANDUEL TV’s Kay Adams has spoken loud and clear about the Pittsburgh Steelers 2023.
On Tuesday, the 37-year-old began a three-minute rant on her show Up And Adams, denouncing the fact that the Steelers “don’t get a buzz.”
This follows Pittsburgh’s 27-17 opening win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last weekend.
adams asked: “Dust, do you understand that Kenny Pickett and the red-hot start he got in his debut season two? There are crickets on him!’
Pickett, who was drafted 20th overall in last year’s NFL draft, had six of seven balls for 70 yards and a touchdown during his brief stint on the field against the Bucs.
Adams then continued, “I understand people have questions about him.” [as a] Quarterback sophomore, you should have questions, he’s not sure.
“We need to talk about him when he’s doing well or when we’re doing something wrong.”
“You have to talk about how keen on action he was. I don’t care what preseason game it is – we do it with all the other quarterbacks.”
She also highlighted how the Steelers ended last season with an impressive 7-2 run.
Adams was also frustrated that she felt the other teams who had such an impressive run — the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars — had received far more praise in her eyes.

But despite that lack of attention Pittsburgh has received, she remains confident the Steelers have a bright year ahead.
“The AFC is going to be brutal, but I get playoff vibes from these Steelers because I’m always drawn to the team that it makes sense that they would take a leap but no one is ready for that,” Adams said.
Next up for Pittsburgh are the Buffalo Bills, who travel to Acrisure Stadium on Saturday, August 19.
This will be followed by their final preseason game in Georgia, where they play the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, August 24th.
