Adding complexity to offense will be job No. 1 for Steelers OC Matt Canada

Last season, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada struggled to handle how to maximize the potential of this young offense. He treated guilt the way your 80-year-old grandmother treats you like you’re a kid when you’re 20 and it’s just frustrating.

A top priority for Canada and the coaches this season is to build a more complex and NFL-quality offense. If you will be more mature and maximize the skills of this young group of skill-position players.

When tight end Pat Freiermuth was on Ben Roethlisberger’s podcast Footballin’, he said the offense was not developed enough to allow checks against the blitz. Freiermuth said, “We didn’t have the hots.” Forcing receivers and tight ends to read coverage and make pre-snap adjustments of their own without Kenny Pickett knowing what anyone was planning to do slowed down the entire offense and that clearly Was an uncoordinated offense for most of the season.

Year two should be huge for Pickett if Canada is willing to open up the offense and add those layers needed to make the offense competitive.
