After being embarrassed (again) yesterday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is threatening to make more changes to the lineup (again).
This was in the wake of a 55-31 loss to the Patriots, in which they gave up the most points and most yards in franchise history.
“You re-evaluate everything,” Tomlin said, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “You have to after a performance like that and we will. It doesn’t necessarily mean we will change or change for the sake of changing, but we will look at every aspect of what we are doing and who we are doing it with because we can’t have performances like that.”
The only problem for Tomlin is, he’s been changing stuff all year.
He’s offered up more sacrifices this year than the Mayans, and none of them have produced the desired result.
But after watching the same result, he came to his post-game press conference boiling at players again.
“Those people who are lacking effort won’t be playing,” Tomlin said. “It’s just that simple, . . . I am angry, disappointed.”
So are a lot of people who expected far more out of Tomlin’s team.
