When your team’s 0-4, drastic measures are in order it seems.

In an attempt to get his players back on track, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has banned all games from the locker room. That means, “no pool cues, ping-pong paddles and shuffleboard discs,” according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Steelers haven't started 0-4 since 1968. On Sunday, they’ll look to get their first victory of the season against Geno Smith and the Jets (3-2).

Asked if Tomlin will return the games once the Steelers win a game, one veteran player told the newspaper: “I don't know. He never said.”
