Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has thrown some curveballs into the mix regarding potential coaching changes on the offense.

On Sunday Tomlin’s declared, following a not-so-pretty 30-6 defeat at the hands of the Houston Texans, that he was ready “to make some changes.”

But… Tomlin seemed to have hit the brakes on that train of thought during a recent media session.

He clarified on Tuesday that when he mentioned changes, he was really talking about something quite different from what most folks expected.

Most believed he was referring to much maligned offensive coordinator/play-caller Matt Canada.

But nope, he says he was talking about “physicality” and “practice attire.”.

According to Tomlin, the Texans simply outmuscled and out-hustled his squad, and that’s a bitter pill to swallow. He was quoted as saying, “Houston was more physical and played harder than us.”

The Steelers have struggled to find the end zone this season, managing a measly four offensive touchdowns in four games.

It seems like Tomlin’s stance on making changes has left more questions than answers.
