It’s not looking good for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and offensive coordinator is getting the blame.
Despite calls for his firing at the end of last season, the Steelers brought him back without much explanation from head coach Mike Tomlin.
Tomlin when asked about by @ChrisHalicke why Matt Canada stayed as OC: "I have nothing to add."

Steelers fans were frustrated early in the team’s game with Canada’s play-calling.
Today is annual Matt Canada is gonna drive me crazy day. 6 yard gain on 1st down. Jet sweep for a loss of yards on 2nd down. Canada will never not run a jet sweep no matter how much they don’t succeed in his scheme. And I’m a jet sweep guy.

One graphic shared by the NFL showed how terrible the Steelers offense was against the vaunted 49ers’ defense.

Of course, it didn’t take long for Steelers fans to call for Canada to be fired.

Bringing back Matt Canada to call plays was a good idea, they said. The Steelers had a legit shot to win this game, they said.

Is it possible for the Steelers to fire Matt Canada at halftime?
