I was reading this article, & this part caught my eye. The Ratbirds R trying hard & they're serious. Click on the web & you guys can see the picture of him with wig.

... IMITATION: Haruki "Polamulu" Nakamura

When rookie safety Haruki Nakamura got to his locker on Wednesday, he found a wig with long black hair. “I thought [Justin] Bannan was playing another joke, so I threw it in his locker,” Nakamura said. At practice that day, one of the coaches asked Haruki where his wig was. “I figured it out then. I was going to be playing Troy Polamalu at practice.”

Nakamura has worn the wig ever since. His picture is attached here. “It was fun to wear, but it did have a purpose. Joe [Flacco] clearly knew where I was lining up as Troy when we were giving our offense the expected Steeler defenses,” Nakamura explained...

Facing the real thing will be a much different story though. I expect Polamalu to be superb as usual.


You watch, Troy will put up his hair inside his helmet this week. :chuckle:

lol, that seems like a good strategy, but I doubt it works. flacco has yet to play someone like polamalu, another reason why he'll struggle

hopefully troy continues his streak of interceptions tomorrow :tt02:

I don't see how that can even coming close to being Troy he will be playing alot harder then what Flacco will be seeing.

Haha too bad no matter how much he dresses like him, he will never be as good as the real Polumalu!

We will adust without Casey in the D-Lineup because we got Troy, Woodley, Farrior, Harrison, Smith etc...need I go on. We will be GTG. They can't imitate the Superfly Snuka Polamalu. What are they thinking?

Interestingly, Polamalu had his hair up during the pre-game warmups. Wonder if he'll keep it up for the game, and if this has anything to do with it?
