Plenty of things are starting to sink the Steeler's season, Egos are starting to flare up as the offense continues to struggle even though the scapegoat known as Matt Canada has been gone for weeks. For one reason or another that unit has not been able to come together as one and figure things out. It looks worse than when Canada was running it.

Too many big egos and injuries that have hampered this team. They could still make the playoffs, but the Steelers have put themselves into terrible situations. Pittsburgh has been constantly disappointed by this club for a while now. Perhaps it's coaching, or maybe the players the team employs could care less about what uniform they wear as long as they get their stats.

Pittsburgh has to find ways of lowering the big egos on the team

Minkah Fitzpatrick had a great quote about why the team seems to be struggling to come together. There is no heart of winning for many in the Steelers locker room right now. Plenty of big egos stain the logo that they represent on the field. Some might see it as someone who is just frustrated with the situation, while others see it as a player giving up.

Both could be true and most will know who Fitzpatrick was referring to during his comments after the team's loss against the Patriots last Thursday. George Pickens and Diontae Johnson are the key cogs in the ego race currently. Both want to be star receivers and want the ball, which makes sense, but that seems to be their only goal.

They do not care about what it takes to win in the NFL, they only want the stats for their gain. Tomlin has routinely dealt with big egos throughout his career as the Head coach of Pittsburgh, but it seems like that skill is dwindling. Players need to be held accountable, and Tomlin seems to not have that part of coaching down.
