    Maybe the Steelers' woes were Matt Canada's fault after all...

    Maybe the Steelers' woes were Matt Canada's fault after all...

    The Steelers offense looked reborn anew in the immediate wake of Canada's termination.

    Steel Maniac's Time-Based Prediction: Lamar Jackson will be a bust and total flop in the NFL.

    What Actually Happened: Lamar Jackson became the youngest two-time NFL MVP winner ever.

    It sure looks that way. All I ever needed to know about Canada is how he scowled and pouted after KP8 changed the play to Pickens a few weeks back and it scored a TD.

    To me Canada would rather have the team fail with his paly than have an audible called and a score produced from it. I read where he never involved his coaching staff on the game plans either. Seen many leaders simialr to this in business and they usually fail.
    Help me find my post proving I am a Yinzer!

    1.) OC - Jackson Powers-Johnson, C - Oregon
    2.) DL - D'Vondre Sweat, NT, Texas
    3.) ILB - Payton Wilson, ILB - NC State
    4a.) OT - Matt Goncalves, ROT - Pitt
    4b.) S -Tykee Smith - S - Georgia
    6.) CB - Marcellus Dial - CB - South Carolina
    7.) DT - Jamree Kromah DT James Madison

    UDFA: P, WR, QB, TE

    Here's a breakdown of Harris' and Warren's rush attempts by direction vs CIN:

    Left Middle Right
    Harris 11 0 4
    Warren 6 1 6

    For the season, Harris has predominantly rushed over center/LG. Warren has been more balanced to the right and left.
    So on the surface it doesn't look like the Steelers changed anything directionally last game. Maybe just better execution?.... and weaker defense?

    The guards are generally a big factor in the run game improvement recent weeks:

    Robinson in motion as the lead blocker. We used that a lot last game.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    you know.. the scowl takes on new meaning now that we know Canada was this rigid and detached from the QB’s.

    It's a good thing that Rooney FINALLY promoted Tomlin ahead of Canada so he could get rid of him.

    We can stop blaming Canada for the lame offense.The Steelers had the most open WR in the NFL last season and got zero TDs from him.Put the blame where it belongs. The Steelers don't have a QB that can get the ball where it should go.Need more proof? In 2021 under Canada's offense and with a QB that could actually read a defense, DJ was the second most targeted receiver in the NFL.The Steelers need a redo in the QB room.

    Easy to get open running horizontal routes under 5 yards with the D playing back, hard to get TDs that way.

    This!

    I think we can safely be back to blaming Canada, like really the rest of the watching NFL! Kenny might not be the next Big Ben but the offense has looked awful no matter who is running it. And it's been broken down by expert analysts as being simple, JV, and predictable, with pointless motion.

    I'd like to see the articles or at least a link to the articles when these charts are posted. They don't always tell the complete story.
