The Pittsburgh Steelers have gotten off to a 1-2 in the 2022 NFL season and a lot of that can be blamed on the offense.

Steelers’ offensive coordinator Matt Canada blames himself for why the team is struggling to score points.

“I’m not going to come up here and say ‘this should have happened’, ‘this should have happened’,” Canada said.  “I’m in charge.  We are not producing.  I’m good with that.  I’m not going to do that.

“We had a great meeting Monday. We are not where we want to be, players see that. We know where we are. I’m not going to do that out here (meaning in the news conference). We do that inside and I feel really good that we made the corrections we need to make. Until we see it on Sunday, it doesn’t matter.”

While fans are questioning whether Mitch Trubisky should be starting quarterback, the Steelers also has had to deal with the injury bug with running back Najee Harris. There have also been rumblings that many players want Canada fired.

Still, Canada seems to think the team will get its act together offensively.

“Everyone wants the ball, it’s an emotional game,” Canada said.  “As long as we keep doing our job it’s going to come around.  We have great faith in that.  Over the long haul with all of the skill we have, all the players we have, all the talent we have.  We are going to get in the right place at the right time.

“Never soon enough as we stand here coming off two losses.  I have great faith that it will.  We are just going to keep working at it.”
