NFL Insider Suggests The Steelers Offense Could Make A Major Change Before Season’s End

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense has been dismal thus far in the 2022 season.

The Mitch Trubisky led unit has found the endzone two times, averaging just 255 yards per game (30th in NFL). That output led to a loss in Week 2 against the Patriots, though the defense only allowed 17 points. The Steelers nearly lost their season opener, too, despite forcing five turnovers and creating a defensive score.

The lack of production has led to criticism of quarterback Mitch Trubisky, as well as offensive coordinator Matt Canada.

According to one notable NFL insider, one of those two offensive pieces could be gone before the season ends.

Mike Florio suggests OC Matt Canada could be gone before season’s end

Pittsburgh radio station 93.7 The Fan had NFL insider Mike Florio of NBC on to talk about the Steelers’ offense through two weeks. Florio dropped a tidbit that many fans might be happy to hear.

He suggested that offensive coordinator Matt Canada might not make it through the year. When asked about that possibility, he answered, “I can’t rule out Art Rooney II firing Matt Canada (in-season).”

There have been whispers that the Steelers are growing frustrated with Canada. Not only has the offense struggled through two games, but there was a rift between the coordinator and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger last season, too.

Many call the play caller stubborn and stuck in his ways, which seems to ring true judging by his inability to fully hand the keys over to his quarterback. Mitch Trubisky was heard this week saying he doesn’t always have the option to audible into his own plays at the line of scrimmage.

Time will tell whether Pittsburgh ultimately makes a move. Another poor performance on Thursday against what’s looking to be an undermanned and underwhelming Cleveland defense will make his seat grow hotter.
