Steel Curtain Network: A Pittsburgh Steelers podcast

Arthur Smith’s Offense, Part Two: The passing attack

The Pittsburgh Steelers have finally made a decision on their offensive coordinator, and they went with Arthur Smith as their guy. There is a lot to digest when it comes to Smith’s tenure in the NFL. From tremendous success in Tennessee to a tumultuous 3-year run with the Atlanta Falcons.

To hear more of what happened in Atlanta, check out the “Let’s Ride” podcast from Monday which highlights all that went wrong, and who is to blame, for Smith’s failures with the Falcons.

But what Steelers fans want to know is how he can help improve the Pittsburgh Steelers offense. Can he channel some of that Titans magic from 2019 and 2020 which had him as one of the hot list candidates for job openings around the league? When it comes to breaking down what Smith wants to do from an offensive perspective, it is appropriate to lean on people who know the game well enough to truly break it down.

For that, I lean on our own Coach, KT Smith. Smith already broke down Smith’s offense from a running game perspective, you can view that HERE, but it is time to also look into the passing game with Smith at the helm. Everyone knows Smith is known for his ground-and-pound approach to the offensive game plan, but what about his passing attack?

Is what he did with Desmond Ridder and Marcus Mariota exactly what he’ll try to do with the Steelers in 2024 and beyond? That’s what Smith attempts to diagnose in the latest Call Sheet Breakdown video.
