The Steelers vs. Ravens game began with boos and has escalated since then. After opening the game with three straight punts from the offense and putting up just 3 points in the first two quarters, fans let Mike Tomlin and company hear it early in the second half.
Steelers fans at Acrisure Stadium are livid, and the 'Fire Canada' chants have officially broke out.
The organization should expect nothing less. In fact, this was to be expected. Earlier in the week, I expressed how this is probably not a good time for the Pittsburgh Steelers to host a home game. After the fiasco we all witnessed in Week 4 against the Houston Texans, we knew it wouldn't take long for the fans to turn on this team.
Matt Canada is clearly taking the brunt of it... and the criticism is certainly deserved. The Steelers put up just 88 yards in the first half and managed a mere 3.4 yards per attempt, per ESPN stats.
Since then, there's been an eruption of 'Fire Canada' chants with a heavy dose of boos mixed in. Things have gone from bad to worse, and the fans can no longer support the dismal play of this once-prestigious organization.
Even coming back from commercial breaks, the crowd noise is roaring, but not for good reason. These ticket-holders have had enough. If the Pittsburgh Steelers want to continue to put butts in seats at Acrisure Stadium, they need to start appeasing the fan base.
In their first four contests, Pittsburgh has scored just 12.0 offensive points per game (excluding two defensive scores in Week 2 by T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith). This ranks second-to-last in the NFL.
The Steelers have a bye Week next week -- the perfect time to fire Matt Canada. At this rate, the Steelers should be looking to blow things up. What a nightmare the start of this season has been!
