Screw Vick. Troy Polamula is the best athlete and most explosive player in the NFL. Week after week he just amazes everyone, whether your a Steelers fan or not. His play on the goal line, he looked to be on the 10 yrd, line when the ball was caught, he he damn near caused a safety. Him fighting off O-linemen to make tackles. And leaping over people for tackles. Name a better athlete? There is none!

If he can maintain his current level of play, he will go to Canton one day (wow that rhymes!)

Polamalu is great athlete... But I sense some bias in this thread.

I think Michael Vick is the best athlete in the NFL... followed closely by Polamalu and Julius Peppers.

Peppers is a tank... But seriously, obviously the best athlete is Byron Leftwich. :smile:

The only bias I have is not coming from being a Steelers fan but just lack of watching another team too much.

As far as Polamalu goes, each week when the announcers and writers talk about him, I'm always a little cautious and I find myself doubting if he's gonna have some spectacular game again.

Not anymore...this guy doesn't have "good games", he is just a solid athlete, and he knows what he's doing. That tackle when he was being blocked by those two guys and he got through them to make the tackle (someone else mentioned) that was AMAZING. 9/10 could not do that.

As far as comparing Vick to Polamalu, I think you really can't. They both get different chances to show you what they can do. Polamalu can't show you that he can escape a tackle and manuever (sp?) around the line, and Vick can't show you his speed on blitzes or his ability to make an open-field tackle.

Of course there are execptions and that might be a long shot, but just trying to make a point.

Merriman in SD. That guy is a beast and one of the best athletes I have seen for a while. To be 6'5 280 pounds and absouluty ripped, WOW.

Troy Polo??/ is great , I just hope his recklessness doesn't come back to bite us in the ass in the Super Bowl

hmmmmmmmm

I think Peppers is. Look at his size, his quickness, his strength and his speed......hes a factor on almost every play.....hes just a damn freak of nature. Of course I expect yall to say Troy though lol

I love Troy guys but come on, LT is the best athlete in the NFL! The guy has thrown caught and ran for tds and I've also seen him make tackles during int returns. IMO.

People used to call Rod Woodson "Superman". I think it's time to pass his cape to Troy cause we have a new super hero in town.

I remember the speculation in the '03 draft when the Steelers moved up and traded picks with Kansas City in order to get Troy.

Turns out to be a great move.

Troy's right up there as far as best athlete in the NFL goes and I believe he is only starting to blossom as a player and we haven't seen his best football yet.
That's kinda scary.

Best athlete? Tom Brady without question. Smooth as silk. Can throw a strike even while some big dumb DL has ahold of his face mask.

Without a doubt Troy but my opinion is biased.
