Are the Pittsburgh Steelers getting the needed level of production out of Minkah Fitzpatrick? Because former Steeler Chris Hoke doesn't think so. 

The iconic two-time Super Bowl winner made a recent appearance on Pittsburgh sports radio station 93.7 The Fan, and he called out Fitzpatrick as not being one of the team's "A" players. 

"Minkah has 64 tackles, 0 interceptions, 0 forced fumbles, 0 fumble recoveries. ‘A’ players have to play ‘A’ ball in games like last Thursday and this Saturday. They haven't gotten that from him this season."

Fitzpatrick joined the Steelers in 2019 and also signed a hefty four-year extension in 2022 to remain in Pittsburgh. And to his credit, Fitzpatrick called out the rest of his teammates after their recent disappointing loss to the struggling New England Patriots last weekend. 

"In order to see fruit, you gotta toil for it. I think too many people don’t want to toil for it," Fitzpatrick said after the loss. "They just want to walk out here and think that they gonna make plays and think that they gonna perform at a high level. 

"I think we need to have more people who want to work for it and not expect it to be handed to them because this is the NFL, and nothing’s handed to you. You gotta earn everything."
