Troy Polamalu gave a flat answer when asked if the Steelers' defense needed to change: "To be quite honest, this is a question that you guys ask us at this same point every single year since I've been here. We're not going to change. It's about how we execute and how we can win our one-on-one matchups. If we don't, it's nothing to do with the scheme of things. It's just that we're not performing."

He then laughed and added, "Maybe I ought to make a recording of that."
Right or wrong, I wouldn't expect many players on that defense to say otherwise.

Although, I should point out the week leading up to the Patriots game last year some of the defensive players pulled the "we are who we are" card.
