๐Ÿˆ The “Fire Matt Canada” chants have even made their way to Washington D.C. Following the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 4-0 win over the Washington Captials on Friday night, Penguins fans walked across the street from Capital One Arena and stormed the steps of the National Portrait Gallery, which is a tradition after beating the Caps. The normal “Lets go Pens” and “Crosby’s Better” than Alex Ovechkin broke out, but they also vocally displayed their frustration with the Steelers offensive coordinator. One fan even had a sign that read “Fire Canada.”

Steelers fans chanted for the firing of Canada for the second straight home game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Penguins fans then picked up the mantle during the teamโ€™s home opener at PPG Paints Arena on Tuesday. There was also a “Fire Canada” sign at an AEW live event last week.

The Steelers are averaging just 15.8 points per game (29th in the league). The offense has scored just five touchdowns in five games, tied for the fewest in the league with the New York Giants. If the offense doesn’t drastically improve after the bye, the “Fire Canada” chants will only continue at Acrisure Stadium and across the country.

๐Ÿˆ T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith are the only outside linebacker duo in the top-10 of pressures this season. Watt has recorded 27 pressures (tied for 4th), while Highsmith has racked up 23 (tied for 8th).

๐Ÿˆ Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus thinks Kenny Pickett has been one of the worst quarterbacks in the league through five weeks.

โ€œYou strip out all of the low sample size guys, itโ€™s basically only Desmond Ridder and Bryce Young that have a worse grade than Kenny Pickett right now,” Monson said on 93.7 The Fan.

๐Ÿˆ Since Week 13 of the 2020 season, the Steelers are 22-21-1. After starting the 2020 season 11-0, the Steelers lost to Washington, 23-17, in Week 13 at Heinz Field. Things unraveled after that loss, as the Steelers lost three of their final four games and got embarrassed by the Cleveland Browns in the wild card game.

๐ŸŽฅ Former Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison discussed his famous hit on Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi in Week 6 of the 2010 season. Harrison was fined $75,000 for the hit.
