Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is preaching patience with the team’s offense after a pair of lackluster outings to open the season, but that will only last so long if the team continues to have a hard time moving the ball.

One thing that would help is hitting on more explosive plays. Their longest gain to this point is a 32-yard reception by tight end Zach Gentry while preseason star George Pickens has just two catches for 26 yards and both Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool are averaging under nine yards a catch.
