Frustrated Steelers QB1 Mitch Trubisky: Too Many Players Arguing Over Play Calls In The Huddle

Pittsburgh Steelers starting quarterback, Mitch Trubisky hasn’t had the start to the season that he may have wanted. While the team is 1-1 just two weeks in, the offense has shown minimal signs of life. Trubisky has struggled, as he adjusts to his first year in Pittsburgh’s offense, led by offensive coordinator, Matt Canada. Those two, Trubisky and Canada, have been at the forefront of criticism from fans.

Week 2 featured a crushing loss to a conference opponent in Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. It was most certainly a winnable game at Acrisure Stadium, and the offense is to blame for not coming out on top. For whatever reason, there hasn’t been any flow in the offense. When speaking to the media after Sunday’s game, Trubisky talked about one interesting tidbit that he thinks the guys need to be better at:

“When everybody is saying ‘call this play, call that play,’ it makes it tough for everybody to do their jobs. I think everybody just needs to worry about their job,” Trubisky said via the Steelers’ YouTube page. “We’ll just keep growing and going in the right direction together. That’s my take on it. Everyone’s got suggestions. Everybody wants the ball in their hands. We’ve got a bunch of talent, and we’ve just got to figure out what works best for us going forward.”

The Steelers signal-caller isn’t pointing fingers at anyone specific here, and it may be an issue with all of the playmakers. Perhaps the wide receivers, like rookie George Pickens, are griping about not getting the ball enough. No one knows who his comments were specified at, but that’s not a good sign for a group that needs some chemistry right now.

Through two games, the black and gold offense ranks 30th in the NFL in total yards per game with 255. If you exclude Minkah Fitzpatrick’s pick-six in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, the offense would be tied-for-24th in points with just 30 total through two weeks. You get the memo, the offense simply isn’t getting the job done at this point. Things have to change and change soon, whether it be bringing in Kenny Pickett at quarterback or perhaps moving on from Canada as offensive coordinator.

Credit to my dad, I have been a lifelong Steelers fan. I have fond memories of watching the Steelers win two Super Bowls when I was a little kid. I have only been to 1 Steelers game in my life, which was in Kansas City. That was the notorious game where Antonio Brown pinned it against his chest down the sidelines for a touchdown. I hope to get to Heinz Field some day! I graduated from Iowa State University and look forward to growing as a writer with #SteelerNation!

    I feel that u need a new OC the Steelers have to play with aggressiveness give mitch one more chance then with all do respect to mitch he is a great QB if he doesn’t get the job done then give kenny a shot at it but more than likely I think matt Canada has to go we have a tough schedule ahead no one talks nice about our team I love my Steelers play like u played against the Bengals be more consistent thank u for listening and every one please get along it doesn’t help if ur team is frustrated ur all great players I look forward every sunday to watching all the football games on redzone especially my Steelers

    Tomlin gets too much credit from fans and media that don’t follow this team closely. They all lap up the Tomlin quote machine and think that translates to a great coach. He’s good but not great and we can forget about him ever getting fired by this ownership. As for QB Pickett has to start game 4 against the Jets. He’s better than Trubisky and he knows Canada’s offense better than anybody since he basically ran it at Pitt. Starting Pickett in week 4 will give the team a lift and is the only way we find out definitively if Canada is the right OC.

    get rid of canada, and the offensive line coaches, next step is tomlin, throw the ball down the field let trubisky play the game with his abilities, he deserves a chance not with the play calling that is going on now

    As stated in the article this can be complicated to put in perspective. The offense goes back to square one and divided by position. Come to a quick understanding about execution. Then bring them all together and put down the law on field leadership. The season is not lost just will take time to create chemistry.

    This all falls on Mike Tomlin. When the QB that is best at running Canada’s offense is inactive on game days this is what you can get. The Steelers need a QB that is not afraid to throw the ball down the field. GO MASON!

    Since we’re only getting two options,the obvious one is to change the play calling for the offense,get Trubinsky’s and the other Talent on the offense,get ideas together in the playroom.Finally,go out and have fun! Think about how the President and our Military or how ANYTHING in life gets accomplished.1 person cannot be held liable for an organizations failure. No one needs to be fired or benched.

    Put Trubinsky in the 1st half and Pickins in the 2nd half. We tend to give up in the 2nd half.

    Lack of leadership from the top down. If there is division in the huddle,the sideline or the locker room then,the Steelers are doomed. Tomlin’s tenure has been marked by this kind of division. The “Cliche Machine” has no clue apparently how to deal with such behavior. Also, Tomlin’s record in winnable games against sub standard opponents should be reason to question his leadership abilities.
