Re: Steelers take steps to address lackluster play
This is Tomlin's chance to establish his authority. Not sure that a practice in pads is what this team needs to get on track, but I guess you try anything short of panic at this point.
What concerns me most, is that Tomlin suggests that blocking & tackling are the issues - the basics. Why, on a veteran-laden team are we still struggling with the basics? Especially tackling!! This was the best defense in the league for the last few years with the same players, and many of them are now well-paid! This is a refelection of the coaching staff. Sorry. There is no other way to say it.
