The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to find ways to get wins out of the mud.
But judging by their personnel, their elite defense, and their great coach, it feels like this team shouldn’t have to deal with that much to get some wins.
People have questioned their offense multiple times, and it seems like the fans have had it with OC Matt Canada, even showing up to other sporting events, such as NHL games, to urge the team to fire him.
With that in mind, reporters asked HC Mike Tomlin about how to improve their offense, to which Tomlin simply replied that they have several areas of improvement, not just on the offense, and added that he was going to address all those issues (via Andrew Siciliano).
Reporter: What are your thoughts on the offense after the bye?
Mike Tomln: "Man, we have talked about this a lot, haven't we?"
"We can get better in all areas, and those are our intentions."

Truth be told, it seems like the offensive scheme is holding Kenny Pickett back.
The play-calling has been uber-conservative, and it’s failed to make the most of his actual traits.
The running game has been stagnant and inefficient, and while the offensive line isn’t the best by any means, they have the personnel to fare much better than they’ve been thus far.
Even so, the Steelers are 3-2 and 2-0 in the division.
Up next, they have a date with a Los Angeles Rams that looks more beatable than they were in years prior.
And while Tomlin is usually at his best when his back is against the wall, this should be a game the Steelers dominate from start to finish.
