Merril Hoge Torches Steelers Receivers: ‘This Is Terrible, This Is Not Pro Football’

Through the first two weeks of the NFL season, you could use a number of different words to describe the Pittsburgh Steelers offense. None of them would be kind and some might not be appropriate for use around small children. The blame for that has largely been directed at offensive coordinator Matt Canada by large sections of the fan base and analysts in the media.

However, there’s plenty of blame to go around for an offense that has scored two touchdowns, the same amount as the Steelers defense in the Monday night win over the Cleveland Browns. When former Pittsburgh RB Merril Hoge joined Randy Bauman and the DVE Morning Show Wednesday morning, he directed some of that blame on the receivers.
