Default Troy Polamalu not an elite Safety this year

First off this game today sucked we lost I know we are not going to go 16-0 every year but still I hate win they lose, but life will go on I am putting on my STEELER sweatshirt right now I'm on my way to Walmart. Want lose faith I remember when we went 15-1 no Super Bowl then the next year 11-5 Champs. Now back to the topic it seems Troy as missed so many tackles this year not just today but all year, I remember last year he made a play every gm but not this year. Maybe the new contract has something to do with that. He is no Bob Sanders

I have been thinking that all year, but the rest of the secondary has made up for his mistakes enough to keep winning until today.

don't blame polamalu for not tackling the RB for the D-line and LBs. the D-line and LBs were pretty much invisible today.

I called out Troy weeks ago on the other Steelers site I used to post at and thats the main reason I don't post on that site anymore...But for real anybody who thinks Troy's play has been as good as in 2004 and 2005 is seriously mistaken.....He is still good but not playing at the high level we are use to seeing out of #43......Sure he has caused a couple fumbles, broke up some passes and made some tackles.....but no INTs or sacks is really disturbing...His Taz role isn't as effective as it once was and people are right when they suggest he is struggling with the Cover-2 that Tomlin has brought to the defense.........But great players should be able to adjust to any scheme....So I hope Troy can step it up.....We need him and some of the game changing plays he use to make.....One of those type plays could have been huge today...

This loss today was not on the defense. The defense gave our offense many opportunities today and they did not convert. FGs are fine, but you have to get a TD in there occasionally, and we didn't do that. Our OL today gave up what 7 sacks today? The Jets had 9 all season! Our OL is pathetic.
