PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After a devastating loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, head coach Mike Tomlin said the team has to play better.

After the game, Brett Keisel called his teammates’ level of readiness into question.

“You [have to] be ready to go. This is a profession. You [have to] be ready to play when it’s time to play,” Keisel said.

Today, Tomlin addressed those comments during his weekly press conference.

“I don’t mind a guy speaking the truth as he sees it under any circumstances. I’m a result oriented guy and the results of that performance would lead you to believe that’s a possibility. So, I don’t run away from that, the proof is in the pudding,” Tomlin said.

Steelers fans were upset when Tomlin refused to go for a 2-point conversion twice, which would have drawn the Steelers to within two scores.

On Tuesday, Tomlin said with six minutes to go and with how the team was playing, he saw no chance of the Steelers coming back to win.

“it was bleak at that point, yes,” Tomlin said.

Willie Colon underwent surgery on his knee on Monday, which means rookie David DeCastro could see his first playing time of the season.

“We believe that his health is at a level now that we can put him in and watch him prepare during the course of the week and if we like what we see, he may have an opportunity to play,” Tomlin said.

The Steelers will go on the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
