Default Is Polamalu overrated?

Is it me or is Troy overated? I think he should be used in a more conventinal way instead of being put all over the place. Teams have him figured out on the blitz ( when was his last sack?), His tackling is very average at best and he allways seems to trail the play, he doesn't fource turnovers or get alot of ints anymore. Don't get me wrong he is a talented guy but I think the coaches should just line him up at safety and let him play instead of jumping him all over the place. Our middle seems to be a sure thing for opposing QB's anymore. TE's have good days against us. Our D had one of its best games ever against Seattle when he was hurt and someone actually played strong safety. I think he is a great player but the way he is getting used is hurting his play.

It's you, dude. One bad outing by the D as a whole, and now the best player on that D (and arguably the entire team as a whole) gets thrown under the bus. Gonna be a long week.

I don't think so. The defense and offense as a whole played a horrible game. Personally, I'm not going to fall back on excuse making for 'certain untouchable' players and attempt to sugarcoat that game. I wish I could live in that little dream world. We stunk from the top (coaching staff) on down. But I do not think Troy Polamalu is overrated.

It's going to be a looooooooooong Monday, but I'm now looking to Cincinnati and watching this team attempt to ring off a few divisional wins in the next few weeks.

Polamalu is not overated! He makes opposing teams account for him, and confuses the QB. Yes, he will have bad games, as will every player in the NFL. But overrated, NO way!
