Default Re: Is Polamalu overrated?

Troy may or may not be overrated but he certainly is indifferent to being voted by the fans to the 75th anniversary team:

"My wife doesn't even know about it," Polamalu said. "I don't know what it has to do with anything, quite honestly. It really doesn't have much to do with anything, but I don't want to disrespect anyone because I know people do care about things like this."

If Troy said this last year I probably would have drawn the wrong inference he did not care if he stayed in Pittsburgh or not - now it is further evidence to me that Troy has a firm idea of what is important in life and will not blow smoke at you and pretend something is important to him if it is not.

For that reason, I wish some reporter would get access to Troy to ask him what he thinks about questions regarding his the level of his performance so far this season - my guess is Troy would provide a polite but brutally honest response.
