How the Steelers can fix their offensive woes in 2020
The Steelers need to revamp an anemic offense that was neither complimentary nor productive in 2019
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that the Steelers offense in 2019 was feckless and inept. That may seem like a harsh assessment, but when you have a defense that ranks in the top quartile in the NFL, the offense should at least be a complementary piece to the defense.
Instead, the Steelers offense ranks in the bottom quartile in the NFL. The aforementioned is quite a discrepancy. If you have watched any Steelers games this season, you know that the defense has carried the team. Again, that may seem like a harsh assessment, but that is the reality of the situation.
I understand that we have had to deal with a plethora of injuries this season; I understand that we could not get into any kind of rhythm in most games, but when we did, we won. Unless or until the Steelers figure out what to do to improve the offensive production, I fear that we will become a team that boasts a perennial dominant defense with a perennial dormant offense.
My fear; however, does not have to become a reality, thankfully. I think the Steelers are fully capable of doing whatever we have to do to revamp the offense; the question is this: What aspects of the offense do the Steelers need to improve?
Since I am no offense guru, I am going to keep my suggestions simple in so far as I can keep them simple as some fixes are more complicated than others. With that in mind, here we go: Let’s take a look at three ‘simple’ fixes for the Steelers offense.
