    Sure there’s no “E” in the Standings yet, but it’s gonna take a long win streak and plenty of help.


    So what’s the point of continuing to run the Canada Offense?
    Make changes and use the remaining games to run next Season’s Offense.
    Screw the “standard is the standard”.
    Start fixing now.

    Bring in players from your PS, let’s see who stays.
    Make some moves.
    How did the Eagles bring in 2 Dlinemen that immediately contributed?


    Don’t end the Season crying missing the Playoffs, end it looking positive toward next year.
    Put the Division on notice, don’t call it a comeback!

    I can only assume that they are keeping Canada through the season just to make things a little easier on Kenny.

    How can we run next season's offense when we don't know what next year's offense is going to look like? We'll presumably have a different coordinator with an entirely different offense. Until we know who that coordinator is and what kind off offense he runs it's pretty hard to practice that offense.

    As for calling up PS players, the coaching staff should already know what they have. Tomlin and Co see these guys every practice so there's not a while lot to be learned by calling them up.

    I get that you're frustrated. We all are. But making wholesale changes mid season would only create chaos that would bleed over into next season. I think staying the course is the right option at this point. Anything else just tells the players that the coaches are clueless and are just throwing mud at the wall to see what sticks.

    I can't see them bringing in an offensive coordinator from outside the organization during the season, and no way in hell should the new OC be someone currently on the staff. We've seen that ****show enough.

    Absolutely. But until there is a change in leadership, are you confident that it won't be next man up on the coaching staff? I don't know for sure, but I think how things have been done will likely remain the same. JMO>

    The Steelers don't fire coaches during the season, the rest of the season is about the progression of Pickett, at least he didn't throw any interceptions in the last two games.

    Unless you’re talking about right here on this message board with us, I totally disagree. If Tomlin doesn’t want to fire Canada after this season then Tomlin himself needs to be fired!

    I have zero confidence that Tomlin will do the right thing. Zero. I think he believes he can make it all right and his coordinators are fine. Remember when everyone was pumped about Flores coming on board and how much of a difference he was going to make as a coach? I just feel like Canada will be here for next year

    The rest of the season certainly is what you say about KP and his progressing. But I'll throw this out as well. How about we find out who the hell wants to coach or play for Steelers and then make some decisions for next year? JMO>

    You could fire Canada and promote maybe Mike Sullivan.

    "Binging guys in from the practice squad" - Hmm. The Steelers know who they are and there is a reason they are on the practice squad.
    we are not going to see anything we don't already know from the coaching point, from the madfan perspective, it does nothing.

    As far as brining in guys, Suh wasn't coming out for a non-playoff contender. The other guy was a body.
    You typically make those kind of move when you are a playoff contender and need a little boost.

    There should also remain a Standard of Excellence. Of course, right now, we are falling short.

    So "Letting it all hang out" is a possibility.
    You do want to try things, but you have to keep in mind that you are bringing a rookie Franchise QB online.

    The question looming in the background.
    "Canada Sucks" is mostly a madfan derivative. This counts for zero in the decision making.
    I will say that some in the know, are questioning what he is doing. That is the tide that makes the difference.
    I personally, think he loses his job Jan 9th or 10th.

    Austin may as well.
    Tomlin, I'm not as confident as I have been in years past that he returns, he may well call it a career.
    I am sort of the opinion that he'd rather end on a better run though.

    Not sure what is going to happen with MT but think maybe it's one of two possibilities:

    1. The remaining season continues going South and not only has 1st losing season, but a horrible losing season. Looking at the lack of talent throughout the team, and not wanting to continue having losing seasons and tarnish his legacy, the pulls chocks and goes for a pause until another gig opens up that is more promising, or
    2. He thinks there is talent that he can turn the team around with and guts it out until he's tired of doing this.

    I think maybe a lot will depend on what happens the rest of the season and how KP and others are doing. JMO>

    I dont want them to lose all the rest of their games, but I feel like they have to lose all the rest of their games. Theres way too many teams to leapfrog and they have lost too many games in conference. The dilemma is liking watching them play, but if I watch them then I want them to win. Best case scenario now is that they dont suffer any serious injuries to key players that's going to linger into next season. Hopefully Kenny starts to show he's a good enough QB that considering drafting another in the 1st rd becomes a forethought (for myself at least)...but if he's too good then they might consider bringing back Canada too☹

    Just look at the real talent on this team. The percentage is low.

    No one want's to see the team lose but at this point it would only better the draft position to bring better talent in. Plus they need to grab some free agents the are above the line and not just bodies.

    If he gets another season as well as Austin it's time to be rid of Tomlin. You can't sit there and justify both of these below average coordinators.

    Pickett can't go through another season under Canada.

    The defense has 3 minds to get it right. A strength said Tomlin at the beginning of the season. And they have gotten it wrong. When you lose one player that is generational and the other ten guys play drops off a cliff something needs to change, coaches and players.

    The team is descending and I feel this won't be a one year fix.

    I don't know if he can take this young team to new heights. Wouldn't surprise me if he left. A CBS ect would grab him up to be a analyst. Might be a time to roll on.

    I do see where your coming from but I think Steeler fans would lynch Rooney if Canada dry is on this team next season.

    That last part is the real key. The development of Pickett, and the entire offense, is more important than wins and losses the rest of the way.
