Steelers Fire Matt Canada
The Steelers just fired a coach midseason for the first time in 81 years. That should tell you everything that you need to know about Matt Canada. The Steelers have fired their offensive coordinator after what has been a dreadful stretch of offense in Pittsburgh.
This news came straight from the team:
“Matt Canada has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator. I appreciate Matt’s hard work and dedication and I wish him the best moving forward in his career,” Tomlin said in a statement.
Speaking of Tomlin, he’s spoken a lot about the offense. Up until now, he’s had Canada’s back. That probably should have ended last year. It really didn’t make sense to bring Canada back. Even Kenny Pickett said the offense has no identity. That’s a problem.
The only thing I don’t understand is why this change wasn’t made sooner. Pittsburgh is 6-4 but has been outgained in every single game. Don’t ask me how Tomlin has found a way to win some of these games. Pittsburgh carries a -29 point differential on the season.
The defense is obviously carrying. I mean… just peep these numbers. Canada, 51, has been with the organization since 2021. What the hell were they waiting for?
Pittsburgh ranks 28th in points per game (16.6), 28th in offensive yards per game (280.1), and 31st in passing yards per game (170) this season. How did they win any games with these numbers? A change clearly needed to be made. That much is for sure. Is it enough to save the Steelers’ season? That part remains to be seen.
