Pittsburgh Steelers fans are not happy with offensive coordinator Matt Canada.
According to recent reports from Pittsburgh insider Josh Rowntree, there is a large majority of the team that want to see change on the offensive side of the ball. Basically, they want Canada fired.
Rowntree later clarified his reports on Twitter.
“To clarify this just a bit,” Rowntree wrote. “No one has publicly come out and said that Canada should be fired. But there’s a strong sense that the players are unhappy with the direction of offense, and, if polled, I believe would favor a change.”
Sitting at 1-2 after back-to-back losses to the New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns, the Steelers’ offense hasn’t found an identity.
“Um, we’ve got playmakers, but, uh, I don’t know if we have an identity,” Claypool said Monday afternoon. “I think we’re still figuring that out.”
Claypool thinks it’s too early, but the discontent in the locker room was evident.
“I couldn’t really tell you,” Diontae Johnson said when asked what the issues were keeping the offense from coming together. “It could be anything when it comes to them. When I say them, the coaches. Not throwing them under the bus or whatever, but, you know, we can only do what they tell us to do and make plays, and that’s about it.”
“The frustration is just knowing how good you can be,” guard Kevin Dotson said. “And potential is one of those things, it’s a good thing and it can drag you down. … I feel like we just know how good we can be. And that’s the thing that’s frustrating us, that we are not clicking how we could be.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers are dealing with some injuries heading into their Week 4 game vs. the New York Jets.
