Five things the Steelers should do during the bye week, but probably won’t
The Steelers are a two-win football team. They need to make some changes, but will they?
After six games of the 2019 season, the Steelers find themselves with two wins. Although the wins were impressive ones, holding the Bengals to 3 points and shutting out the Chargers at one point by 24 until surrendering 17 points to make the game closer than it had to be, there are some changes the Steelers should make during the bye week, but probably won’t.
Despite a brilliant defensive performance against the Chargers that earned the Steelers their second win of the season, we are still a two-win football team. In other words, as it stands right now at the bye week, the Steelers are winning games at a 33.3% clip. That is not going to get it done, not by a long shot.
In my opinion, changes need to be made on both sides of the ball, but will those changes be made? Well, I guess that remains to be seen. Since I do not wield any power within the Steelers organization, these changes to which I am referring would merely be a manifestation of my desire to see us make said changes.
I do believe, however, that we should make some changes if we are going to be in the conversation come playoff time. With all the adversity with which the Steelers have had to deal thus far in the 2019 campaign, it would a shame if we didn’t at least try to improve an already improving team.
