After the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 5 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Steelers fan base was livid. Actually, come to think of it, livid might be too nice of a term. Anyways, with the global Steelers fan base up-in-arms over everything from their franchise quarterback’s horrid play, to the team’s inability to stop the run, I felt the only logical solution would be to ask the fans how the team should fix this mess.
I mean, fans know better than players and coaches, right?
What I did is I asked the below question to both our Twitter followers, and Facebook followers, (if you don’t follow us on Twitter, click HERE. If you don’t follow us on Facebook, click HERE.), and the responses flowed liked none other.
If you could make ONE change to the #Steelers team that ISN'T firing a coach, what would you do to make a difference in the team?— BTSC Steelers (@btsteelcurtain) October 10, 2017
There were so many responses as of 9:30 p.m. ET on both platforms, I decided to put them together for all to see. I have categorized the responses in three categories:
- The logical
- The hilarious
- and WTH?!
Let’s get to it and see what Steelers Nation knows about how to fix this football team!
More no huddle, seems to get Ben in a rhythm.— Paul McDaniel (@paulmcd1232) October 10, 2017
Run ball more, play action pass. They are always in shotgun many times empty backfield.— Alex Potenza (@alexpotenza3) October 10, 2017
Marcus Gilbert healthy. It's same as last year when he missed time. Hubbard serviceable but lacks run push Gilbert provides— Steelbuck14 (@Steelbuck14) October 10, 2017
More 4 wide sets with eli, brown, Bryant, juju. Less heavy personnel. They need Eli he's tough 2 cover in the slot and on crossing routes— Bruce Wayne (@Bruce_Wayne8887) October 10, 2017
Decide if you're a franchise QB oriented offense or a grinding offense. Can't have both.— Carlos (@ca_salasv) October 10, 2017

Talk clear and loud with Ben & leVeon : no place for divas or stupidity— Beatnik (@hernanuga76) October 10, 2017
Put Ben’s right hand in a cast so it forces him to handoff to Bell or throw left handed. Either of which is an improvement!— Diane Hake (@dianehake) October 10, 2017
