The Pittsburgh Steelers have parted ways with embattled offensive coordinator Matt Canada after the team’s most recent poor performance, a 10-point showing against the Browns.
Canada, who is rumored to have his own burner account to defend himself from critical fans on social media, has guided the Steelers offense to near historically bad offensive statistics. Currently, Pittsburgh ranks 28th in both yards per game and points per game. While many fans point to second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett as the primary reason for that poor performance, Canada has borne the brunt of the criticism.
A possible deal breaker could have been the post-game interview of Steelers running back Najee Harris, who expressed frustration with the team’s low offensive output.
Najee Harris questions how long the Steelers’ record will look good if they continue to play like this.
