5 predictions for Steelers that could come to fruition in 2021
By Tommy Jaggi
The Steelers have some key decisions to make in the coming months. Here are five predictions that could come to fruition this offseason.
It has been an eventful offseason so far, and Steelers fans are excited to see what is in store next. After getting embarrassed by the Cleveland Browns in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, Pittsburgh didn’t waste any time in letting go of three members of their coaching staff, including offensive coordinator, Randy Fichtner.
We’re only getting started. On Friday, veteran tight end, Vance McDonald officially announced his retirement and other big news is sure to follow. While most of what we’ve been hearing has only been speculation at this point, we can make assumptions as to what they will do in the coming weeks and months. Here are five predictions that could very well come to fruition for Pittsburgh in 2021:
Matt Canada officially becomes the offensive coordinator
Is he the new offensive coordinator or is he not? While it was announced by NFL Network’s Tom Perisselo, there has been no official announcement to make Matt Canada the team’s next offensive coordinator. In fact, after it looked like this decision was going to be etched in stone, the Steelers had requested at least two more interviews for the vacant coaching position – including Hue Jackson and Pep Hamilton.
Though Canada isn’t guaranteed to become the new offensive coordinator yet, it appears that the Steelers might just be doing their due diligence by interviewing a few other candidates. But in the end, I think Canada gets the job.
