He's the biggest threat for the offenses, and proves it every game. I'm glad to see them starting to use him for the corner-blitzing. He plays so hard every play, and doesn't stop until he has a hand on the opponent. He was reading the quaterback a few times in ways that reminded me of Rod Woodson. He's definitely on his way to being an all-time great.

Injury Prone? I can't even remember him being listed as Probable! I'm sure Troy'll retire a Steeler and a Hall of Famer, barring a season ending injury or some other unforseen force. I don't see him slumping off in his later years, he may slow down, but his instinct'll just get better, and that'll make up for that.

I love his interceptions, he holds it like a hot potato, lol

Troy is everwhere! You could just see Carr coming to the line play after play, and just looking for him.

Can anyone tell me what number he is? I thought his hair just covered his name last year? How does the helmet stay on?

I heard the hair thing was a religion thing. No idea about the validity of that comment.

Nonetheless, he is in on most every play and I want his and Poter's jersey. I don't think the D gets enough recognition (jersey wise) most fans wear offensive players jerseys. At least I do not own a Defensive players jersey.

Yeah I have two offensive jerseys of current players. I was looking at maybe getting Polamalu or maybe Farrior.

Troy was nicked up a lot at USC, I believe thats where the "injury prone" comment came from. It's funny he might turn out just like Curtis Martin. At Pitt he was hurt just about every week, now in the pro's he has been one of the most durable backs.

Who here thinks Troy'll break that record before the season is through? I do. Screw Ed Reed, Troy'll burn him anyday. How many Safeties are there that can blitz, sack, stuff the run, deflect passes, and run interceptions as well as Troy can? Not to mention the fact that he gives each game is all, and watching him tackle someone is one of the most enjoyable things to watch...

Like his Jersey says.... P{{{{{{U


{ = his hair in case you didnt get it...

i think it is a religion thing because his cousin plays for the college i go to (texas a&m university kingsville) and his hair is just as long and nappy looking. and they look like they are brothers. to bad he ain't half the player troy is but he is decent.

as for defensive jerseys, where i live that's all i see is defensive jerseys. everyone has roy williams or newman jerseys and now i'm starting to see ppl wear duante (sp?) robinson jerseys. and i think in this little town that i'm the only one that has a steelers jersey or at least i'm the only one that sports it with pride, every monday win or lose you can count on me to be wearing something that has the steelers logo, sometimes tuesdays cause i always wear it the day after the game.
