When the Pittsburgh Steelers play the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, their offensive coordinator might be on the sidelines.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gerry Dulac reports that the Steelers are thinking about deploying offensive coordinator Matt Canada to the sidelines in order to assist quarterback Kenny Pickett and the offense.
The Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive has been unsatisfactory through seven games of the 2023 season. With 1,902 yards of total offense and 113 total points, the Steelers are ranked 31st and 32nd, respectively.
With 1,330 yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions, Pickett is a successful passer. Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren, the running backs, are still having trouble on the ground; they have rushed for 313 yards and 175 yards, respectively.
Nevertheless, with Pickett starting at quarterback, the Steelers are 5-1 during primetime. Will Levis, the rookie quarterback for Tennessee, has already been confirmed to start after tossing four touchdowns in his debut game against the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday.
In their past 20 seasons, rookie quarterbacks in Pittsburgh have a 1-15 record. This information comes from NFL.com. Furthermore, no rookie quarterback in Steel City has ever prevailed in a primetime game.
