Good reviews for Matt Canada’s move to sideline

During the game against the Titans last Thursday, the Steelers made a significant change to their gameday operations, and it appears that this change will carry over to their game against the Packers this week.

Matt Canada, the offensive coordinator, opted to work from the sideline instead of from the booth above the field. This adjustment aimed to enhance his communication with head coach Mike Tomlin, quarterback Kenny Pickett, and other members of the offense. After securing a 20-16 victory, Pickett expressed that he felt the new arrangement was beneficial.

During his press conference on Tuesday, Tomlin echoed Pickett’s sentiments and indicated that the team will likely continue with this approach going forward.

Tomlin stated, “We’re willing to do whatever is required to continue to progress in all three phases. We make changes week in and week out. Obviously, because of his location, that was a more obvious change. I thought it was good reviews. I thought it aided in communication. Coach-to-player is one thing, but the give and take and the face-to-face component I thought could add a little value to our cause. The reviews were positive and, so, we’ll probably continue to work in that area. We’ll probably continue to turn other things over in an effort to continue to improve. Again, we do things weekly. Some weeks you notice them. Most weeks you don’t.”

Little has escaped notice about the Steelers’ offensive performance this season, and the general reviews have not been as favorable as those received by Canada’s new on-field position. With a winning record, however, a home win against Green Bay should help silence calls for significant changes in Pittsburgh.
