    With Canada, I expect that the absolute minimum improvements for next year are for DJ to catch a TD and Pickens to not lead the league in contested passes. Above that is gravy

    I mean things have been running very smoothly recently it makes perfect sense to keep things status quo. Steelers Way! Canada should get the MT Lifetime contract after next season.

    All we need to do now is go find some young offensive talent from SF and bring him over tobe the passing game coordinator and groom him for the future.

    All IMO

    Steelers were 7 2 down the stretch, BUT played a bunch of turd teams n still couldn't score consistently

    They are fooling themselves

    The largest issue for me is Canada's system n MO

    His system rarely uses the middle of the field, making the Def job easier
    He simply calls plays vs scheming up to get his play makers open - running play A to set up play B etc. His system has the qb take the 1st open read, typically the short stuff, which includes 3rd 8 plays (read/heard that somewhere during season maybe Batch on a postgame show?)

    Whiz was pretty good at this at his peak

    Wasting a year again IMO

    What I heard was that Mike Tomlin was dealing with a personal issue and no decisions were being made until he returns

    Something we all knew was happening. His contract and season finish cemented it.

    Now, I ask this, what if we finished with 4-5 wins, Steeler front office think contract or results????????????????????????????????

    Honestly, I'm not sure why anyone is surprised. He has a contract for next year and this is the Steelers. As much as I don't want him back, I've been saying for months he would return. Art is perfectly content with this season.

    I hope in 10 years we are not like the Pirates, just a business to fill seats but not willing to pay the extra cost necessary to get over the hump which for us seems to make it past one playoff win now. Patience and stability is great if you are seeing continual progress towards your objective. The way we finished is a red herring due to who we were playing. I think he's gone after next year unless there is a miraculous improvement in our offensive performance. Its a money issue and if I am Cam I would be thinking damn there goes 1 of my maybe 3 years left of top performance for $700k. I can't believe Tomlin wants him back, feels like a total Rooney move over money.

    It could be. I'm not a fan of Canada, but I seen progress in many areas, and I have never been so stubborn that My mind can't be changed.

    Salary cap world and solid owners prevent the Steelers from turning into the disgraceful Pirates. Teams spend roughly the same in the NFL and the Rooneys manage things well enough to keep the wheels from falling off. Still, the Rooneys are one of the "least rich" owners so they may really not like paying a coach not to coach. That, and Tomlin and Canada are friends, so it may very well be Mike who wants Canada back and Art is just agreeing to it. Regardless, and understanding it's been two years with a very old QB, a rookie QB, and otherwise all very young players, the offense has looked poorly schemed, whether intentionally simplified or not.

    I don’t get it. In some ways, I can appreciate the loyalty that Tomlin and the Steelers organization extends to its coaches, but the NFL is a performance driven business and the fact is that Canada’s offense has been an abysmal failure the last two seasons spanning three (really four if you count Rudolph’s appearances) different quarterbacks. The offense has looked out of sync with a future HOFer at quarterback, a mediocre six year vet and a rookie. The rook has shown some promise but the fact is his OC did him no favors this year. This is Canada’s offense in a nutshell:

    • Pickett’s 6.2 yards per attempt and seven touchdowns on the season were good for just 33rd in the NFL in both categories.

    • The Steelers’ overall points per game output of 18.1 was tied for 26th in football. That’s despite executing the fifth-most snaps in the league at 1,153 (pass, rush and penalties), leading the NFL in average plays per drive at 6.5 and being fifth in time of possession (31:18).

    • The Steelers had only 44 passing plays of 20 yards or more, tied with the Cleveland Browns for 23rd in the league. With just three passing plays of 40-plus yards, they were tied for last with the Arizona Cardinals and Jaguars.

    • Their red-zone touchdown percentage of 51.9 was 22nd in the NFL. Their yards per play of 4.9 put them at 27th.

    https://triblive.com/sports/tim-ben...f-kenny-pickett-after-week-1-of-nfl-playoffs/

    I was really hoping the Steelers would bring in a bright, young, creative offensive mind to help get Pickett and the rest of the talented young players on this offense to the next level. But for whatever reason, they chose to keep the guy who is obviously in way over his head and is a running joke around the league and with former players in sports media who refer to him as Mr. Saturday-ish. That may giving him too much credit. He’s somewhere between HS and JUCO with his playbook design and implementation. I honestly thought that after this season Matt Canada being fired would join the short list consisting of death and taxes as the only sure things in life and boy was I wrong. Matt Canada does not deserve to remain on staff as the Steelers OC yet here we are. :facepalm::frustrated:

    No M. Canada fan here ....so no excuses, but I find it funny that We are tied in some categories with 3 teams that's Head Coaches were hired because they were thought to be offensive gurus.

    Start at the top. 3-in-54 coming up. 19 straight non losing. Art is happy.

    On the other hand, no playoff wins in 6 years and nowhere near winning Bowl #7. Most of the fans are unhappy. Our opinion doesn't matter though.

    More like apathy. If Rooney and Tomlin don't care about trying to improve and win, why should we care about the Steelers. I do, but I feel like glory days are in the rear view mirror and nothing on the horizon except desert.
