The Pittsburgh Steelers need to change dramatically, but their head coach doesn’t think they need to — and that’s a concern.

“We’re not gonna push the panic button,” Mike Tomlin said in his weekly press conference. “We’re not going to dramatically change who and what we are at this juncture.”

“We’re not resistant to change for the purposes of getting better, but we’re not going to be so unsteady that we move away from our compass, the identity that we worked hard to develop, and we’ll continue to work hard to develop, and the emphasis on the style of play, whatever that may be, in all three phases.”

Move away from “our compass,” the “identity” they’ve worked hard to develop? First, their compass is broken. Second, the offense is without an identity.

Tomlin is right about one thing: The Steelers shouldn’t panic. They need to remain calm, cool and collected at all times, especially in the face of defeat.

Dramatic changes are needed, though — and stat. If Pittsburgh stands pat and drops any more than one game before the bye, its playoff hopes will go up in a cloud of smoke.
