How Matt Canada Can Balance Steelers Offense



Pittsburgh Steelers Locked on Steelers

Steelers Now reporter Chris Carter digs deep on the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL Monday through Friday all year long on Locked on Steelers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada must find a way to balance the team’s new offense without Ben Roethlisberger. After the Steelers threw the ball a lot more than they ran the ball in 2021, how much will their offense change with Najee Harris as the focal point? And what must Canada do to make sure Pat Freiermuth, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and George Pickens get their fair share of touches and targets to make the Steelers at their best? It will be a tricky challenge for Canada.

Also, a caller asks if rookie receiver Calvin Austin III is actually the Steelers’ secret weapon on offense. Is there not enough talk about what Austin may contribute?

Finally, Chris Carter takes a closer look at how the Steelers used the jet sweep in Matt Canada’s offense last year and how it could improve.
