    Does Kenny get under center more and pass from being under center more as well.

    Too many times he’s under center , we just run the ball. Mix it up more.

    There are some obvious questions here - for one, why did it take so long? Why was Canada even brought back for a third season? I suspect this move was actually done by Rooney but I hope it's Tomlin doing this and realizing actual change needs to take place but I have serious doubts. Let's see how things go.
    I blame Rooney for Canada being brought back this year. Rooney’s cheap @ss.

    Will we improve who knows but enough of this sh*t show of an offense. That last possession against the Browns was the final coffin nail in Canada's career as a Steelers coach.

    I'm proud of Art II. It takes a lot to get a Rooney to eat money but he knows he has to take charge of this ship before it sinks.
    Indeed this appears to be Rooney's doing. Here is a quote from Dulac:
    "The decision came from team president Art Rooney II after watching the Steelers average just 16.1 points in 10 games and seeing quarterback Kenny Pickett struggle to develop in his second season."

    I know Tomlin likes to be loyal to his coaches (as he should) but it leaves me wondering if this was another BA situation where Tomlin did not want to move on, but Rooney stepped in. If it is, you gotta think temperature of Tomlin's seat will have a direct correlation to the success the team has the rest of this season.

    True, I think maybe Rooney's thinking is "Hey only half a season left and I don't have to hire someone else this year, fine."

    No, you blame him for the last 3 plays when we had an excellent chance to take the game.

    Basically, if Tomlin doesn't step back from the offensive side of the ball nothing is really going to change, ie, he's gotta go. And if Rooney is actually serious about getting the Steelers back to another SB having to do these moves and take them out of the hands of a HC with almost two decades of experience has to be concerning.

    Any chance say a leftwich or ken Dorsey is hired mid-season?

    Thrilled but also pissed, they knew he wasn't the long term OC after last season but decided to waste an entire offseason and half a regular season of Kenny's career with this guy.

    I also don't expect much to change regarding being risk-averse, but maybe they can scheme up some freebies.

    Know we can see if it is Tomlin with the shackles on the offense or if it was Canada
