Mike Tomlin: Changes will be subtle in nature, but hopefully significant in a positive way

In the aftermath of Sunday’s 41-10 loss to the Bengals, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that the team is “open to changes” in order to rebound from that loss and the three-game winless streak they carry into this Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

The topic of changes came up again during Tomlin’s Tuesday press conference. Tomlin said that the team will not make changes just for the sake of making them, but added that the one the thing the Steelers “can’t do is continue to do the same things you’ve been doing and expect a different result.”

“We’re open to some schematic changes,” Tomlin said. “We’re open to some personnel changes, obviously. They won’t be drastic in nature. Probably more subtle in nature, but hopefully significant. Significant in a positive way.”

Tomlin didn’t make any mention of specific changes that the team is looking into for this week’s game, so we’ll have to wait until Sunday to see what’s different about the 5-5-1 club

  1. Advice to Steelers. Keep losing games, get a Top 5 pick and let that lead a package of picks to trade to the Texans for DeShaun Watson.

  2. Coach Shades with another contradictory, nonsensical statement full of hot air and telling us nothing. Luckily he has a job for life.

  3. steelers heading for a decade of decline and despair, But fans will always have terrible towel’s and Tomlin Cool T-shirts

  4. They don’t have a capable NFL starting QB on their roster, their O-line is horrible, the player they just paid a lot of money too cannot stay healthy just like his brother and you got an immature entitle little brat complaining about the music during practice sounds more like a sledge hammer to the whole thing would be better.

  5. Cracks in the foundation started with the over rated CB. Once that happens theirs no way to salvage the season this late into it.

    And in spite of all that plus additional history I have to root for the Steelers to win. This is what the NFL playoff standings can do.

  7. The entire division has passed the Steelers up. The Bungles have figured them out and the Steelers will have an impossible time beating them as long as Tomlin is there. Tomlin’s shelf life has an expired but it seems those closest to the team fear any type of legitimate criticism of the coach or the situation. This team has been in decline for a decade and the people that should see this haven’t. If they stay on the current course it’s going to be a long time before the Steelers are SB contenders again. But hey, you can hang your hat on mediocrity and non losing seasons.
