Arthur Smith of the Steelers teases what his system will look like for Pittsburgh’s offence.

The offence needs improvement on the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Arthur Smith thinks he can help the team overcome its offensive problems. The former head coach of the Atlanta Falcons has already shared some ideas about how he wants to manage Pittsburgh’s offence, which finished the 2023 NFL regular season as one of the least productive in the league.

In his first interview after taking over as the team’s offensive coordinator, Smith told Missi Matthews of Steelers.com, “Any offence I’ve been a part of, it’s going to be a physical brand.”

“Playing to strengths is just as important as winning the line of scrimmage. Of course, attempting to make explosives,” Smith continued.

The Steelers have a lot to hope from this kind of success, even though they weren’t exactly an explosive offensive squad. It’s still unclear how good Smith will be in his new role. From 2019 to 2020, Smith served as the offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans before to taking over as head coach of the Falcons.

“It’s going to come down to situational football in the National Football League, which kind of encompasses third-down, two-minute plays at the end of the half, and games. Want to have a very smart unit.” Red zone, obviously. Points must be earned by us. You will produce touchdowns with those four-point swings.

Atlanta ranked 26th with 18.9 points per game and 26th with 1.9 touchdowns per game in Smith’s final season as head coach of the Falcons.
