Steelers' HC Charles believes team needs to "get out of our own way"

by Crimsion | 7 months ago | 0 Comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers had yet another up and down season, finishing dead last in the AFC North with a record of 9-7. A four-game skid that began Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals did put this team's post-season hopes in the dump, but as always head coach Jordan Charles will use this as a learning opportunity. 

"That four game losing streak did show me a lot, both good and bad," said Charles during his end of season presser. "We need to just get out of our own way, out of our heads sometimes. We have one hell of a team and the personnel will only get better this off-seaosn."

Those are some massive claims from the acting head coach/general manager as the team still has some key pieces to work with as the re-sign phase comes to a in a few short weeks. Veterans David DeCastro, Stephon Tuitt, Damon Harrison, Maurkice Pouncey and Justin Houston are all in line to hit free agency if a contract cannot be agreed upon. Pittsburgh currently has just about 60M in cap space, but also has to deal with the re-signing of star MLB Devin Bush next season. 

When asked about the priority of these veterans, general managers Jordan Charles said that they would look into these matters individiually over the next few weeks.

"Some people expect us to group things together, such as the resigning of Markice [Pouncey] and David [DeCastro] as packages, but we're going to do what's best for the players as well as the team," said Charles. "This team is very much in win now mode and we've got to make the right moves once the season comes to a close."

It remains to be seen that this group of players really has what it takes to make the post-season, let alone hoist a Lombari, however it does seem that Charles has some tricks up his sleeve this off-season. Reporters pressed Charles heavily and tried to get his stance on what needed to imporve more so, the offense or the defense as rookie QB Kedon Solvis showed flashes later in the year, but overall wasn't the success most chase out of a first-year signal caller.

"I'll leave it at this, our cores are intact on both sides of the ball. We've simply got to re-load as opposed to re-tooling." said Charles as he exited stage left and begun to put his plan into place.
