Simply put:
Even though there should/could be a way to reduce takeoff thrust in the event of unreliable airspeed, or low altitude level off, leading to full thrust at altitude capture, this isn't part of the autothrottle logic. Take off thrust will still be the AT mode unless SPD (speed) has been selected on the MCP panel in the event of a "low altitude" capture or for other reasons as stated in the initial report. The takeoff situation with ET and the AT at full thrust with all the other caution/warnings and MCAS activation were the precursor to this tragic accident.

Boeing has "memory items" for flight with unreliable airspeed which is covered during transition and UPRT training.
A difference of 5 knots between Captain and First Officer airspeed tape on the PFD (primary flight display) triggers "IAS disagree" on both PFD's!

Autopilot (if engaged).......................................Disengage
Autothrottle (if engaged)....................................Disengage
F/D switches (both)................................................OFF

Set the following gear up pitch attitude and thrust:
Flaps extended.................................... 10 and 80% N1
Flaps up........................................... 4 and 75% N1
