The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced the firing of offensive coordinator Matt Canada, as head coach Mike Tomlin expressed appreciation for his hard work and dedication. This change comes after ongoing struggles with the team’s offense this season, which has left fans demanding a change. Despite these challenges, the Steelers remain in the running for the AFC playoffs and are expected to play significant games for the rest of the year.
Tomlin recognized that a better offense was necessary to win these important games and made the decision to address ongoing issues by bringing in new leadership. Quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are reportedly taking over Canada’s duties. It is not yet clear who will be calling offensive plays moving forward, but it is clear that changes must be made to improve the team’s performance on offense.
Kenny Pickett, who has struggled in his second season as quarterback, has shown little improvement so far. The team has struggled to move the ball week after week, leaving fans frustrated and disillusioned with their performance. However, despite these challenges, the Steelers continue to have high hopes for making it into the playoffs and competing for a championship next year.
