The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to find ways to win games, but it feels like it shouldn’t be so complicated.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to know that your quarterback has that clutch gene and that he can take care of business late in games, but wouldn’t it be easier to just be leading in the first three quarters to begin with?
The Steelers offense has been subpar this season, and star WR George Pickens has grown frustrated with his apparent lack of usage.
He made it loud and clear by throwing a tantrum on social media, deleting all Steelers-related posts and even unfollowing the team, Kenny Pickett, and multiple people from within the organization, just like an angry toddler or a teenager.
That’s why RB Najee Harris, who’s no longer a team captain, still wanted to step up and give him a piece of his mind amid all the controversy.

Harris reportedly reached out to Pickens and told him to handle himself better (via Dov Kleiman), urging him to just keep his composure despite his frustration.
Pickens obviously has plenty of upside, and there’s no reason to believe he couldn’t be one of the best wide receivers in the game in the right setting.
Kenny Pickett has plenty of room for improvement, and talking about Matt Canada’s offense could be futile at this point.
But even if you have every right to be angry, you’re still a professional and should handle yourself as such, it doesn’t matter how talented you are.
