Re: General skills of Steelers Troy Polamalu questioned by some heading into his 12th
Troy was all over the field and when on his game, looked like the Troy of old that kept offensive coordinators up all night with nightmares. He isn't the natural sit-back safety like all the others have the privileged of owning. He's asked to be 10 places at once and last season? He was damned good IMHO.
Even in his prime, Troy never had elite coverage skills as far as being in perfect position when the ball is in the air but his intangibles of being an absolute madman in places NOBODY expected him to be still breaths within him.
In Troy....we trust. He MUST retire a Steeler. MUST.
