Sydney won't make any "dramatic change" in the wake of its shock 0-6 start to 2017, with Swans football boss Tom Harley confident the club has the talent to turn its season around.

Under Paul Roos and his coaching successor John Longmire, the Swans have missed the finals just once since 2003 and are coming off a Grand Final appearance last season.

However, the perennial finalists have endured a horror opening to the home and away season, and after the loss to Carlton on Saturday is the only club yet to win this year.

Harley told SEN radio on Monday morning the Swans were not contemplating the type of "catastrophic changes" Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson flagged in the wake of his side's latest flogging at the hands of St Kilda on Saturday.

Harley said the Swans had blooded 13 debutants since the start of last season, and believed simple hard work would prove the solution to their on-field woes.

"We haven't taken a specific development focus with the selection of the team. We've been picking the team on merit and the way the list has evolved over the past couple of years, the kids [have been] playing," Harley said.

"So it's not just like we've changed tack and played the kids because the kids are playing. And to be fair, of those 13 (recent debutants) only Jack Hiscox is no longer in the squad and the others have made meaningful contributions.

"We've clearly had some challenges with players coming off limited preparations and some absolute uncontrollables like (Isaac) Heeney (glandular fever) and (Dane) Rampe (broken arm), so we need to get our best players in the team and fit, and then work on the form.

"I wouldn't be forecasting any dramatic change.

"We know we have got the talent. We had five All Australians last year and technically that's only seven games ago. So we've got to find ways to maximise their output."
