It wasn’t Sunday, and it definitely wasn’t a football game … but that didn’t stop the fans in Pittsburgh from letting it be known that they want Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada GONE … chanting “Fire Canada” during the Penguins game!
It happened during the Penguins’ 4-2 loss at home against the Blackhawks on Tuesday (their first game of the season) … when Pittsburgh fans seemingly forgot where they were, and began yelling to get rid of the 51-year-old coach.
One of the fans in attendance captured the moment on video … and you can clearly hear “Fire Canada” ringing throughout the PPG Paints Arena.
Despite the Steelers’ 3-2 record (they currently lead the AFC North) and a win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, the fans are clearly pissed off at the team’s offense, and the guy running it.
Canada was hired as the OC in 2021 … but the offense hasn’t exactly been explosive with MC calling the plays, and Kenny Pickett under center.
The Steelers have a bye this week … probably a good thing for Canada. Regardless of the time off, Pickett told reporters they’ll continue to work regardless of the break.
“There’s definitely positives, there’s always negatives that you can work on during the Bye week,” Pickett said.
“There’s a lot of things to get better at, too, so I’m gonna use this week to kinda take a step back from it and kinda fine-tooth comb it and figure out what we need to do to get better.”
A group of X users created a GoFundMe and sponsored a billboard next to the Homestead Grays Bridge in an effort to show #SteelerNation their frustration with current OC (Original Clown) Matt Canada. Let’s come together and make more billboards happen throughout burgh 🖤💛👊🏻 pic.twitter.com/gjFmroegPt
