How do the “big changes” work for the Steelers?

Shortly after getting destroyed by the Texans a week ago, Mike Tomlin proclaimed that changes were coming for this team next week. Steelers fans went to sleep dreaming of new offensive coordinators and new schemes to better fit this team. When they awoke though, it became clear that that wasn’t the case.

Matt Canada is still the offensive coordinator despite the fanbase having completely turned on him, and the only notable change Tomlin hinted at was an additional padded practice. A change, I guess, but certainly not the big one that was promised.

The Steelers players reportedly met to discuss what was going wrong. In addition to this, we have seen names like Keeanu Benton, Desmond King, and Calvin Austin all shift up the depth chart. For a team in disarray though, these certainly aren’t the big changes that Tomlin claimed there would be. I have my doubts that it will be enough against a talented Ravens team.

The Steelers prepare to face off against a familiar opponent this week in the Ravens, and while this team has played poorly so far, there is still some hope. That being said, if this team wants a shot at winning this week, they will have to answer these four questions.
