Default Troy Polamalu is always on time

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...always-on-time

Quote:
Trailing 10-6 and with the Ravens facing second-and-5 from their 38-yard line, Pittsburgh defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau called a "Cover Zero," which is a blitz with no safety help over the top. It was a gutsy call that could have resulted in a big play for Baltimore or Pittsburgh. But thanks to Polamalu, the game swung in Pittsburgh's favor.
Quote:
Polamalu's well-timed blitz could be the biggest play in Pittsburgh's regular season. It also could be the sequence that gives Pittsburgh at least one postseason game at Heinz Field and potentially a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Many players can make plays. But very few can make them consistently when the game is on the line.

That is the rare category that Polamalu is in.


"That's the thing; that's what makes him a star," Steelers safety Ryan Clark said of Polamalu, who had five tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.


"He watches film like no other player," said Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood. "In practice, you can see that he knows exactly what to do. And when you see him flying around in practice, you just know he's going to do it in the game."

While Polamalu's teammates boarded the bus in a celebratory mood, Polamalu walked to his locker and the flock of media as though nothing happened. Polamalu expects to make special plays and spent his time crediting others.

"It was all Coach LeBeau," Polamalu said in a very quiet voice. "We were anticipating run, but Coach LeBeau remained a step ahead."

That's about all you're going to get out of Polamalu in terms of his personal greatness.

Last week, Polamalu saved the Steelers with a fourth-quarter interception that helped force overtime against the Buffalo Bills. This week he caused the fumble that may have won the division.
i know its all most trendy to question lebeau these days and imply that the game has passed him by. thats why its best to listen to the opinions of those who work for him as opposed to the message board savants. lebeaus resume speaks for itself.

the results speak even louder.

Well even last night that comment came up quite a bit. Where's Troy, lol

Hell Boldin said, YOOOOO troy I'm over here in the endzone, lol..

Its just to bad our secondary isnt good enough to cover a dead dog or we could really let Troy wreak havoc in the short zones.

I was sitting and watching the game with a friend, and looked over at him shortly before as well...said "it's time for a turnover or SOMETHING" ... IT was in the cards last night...

Gotta love our Tasmanian Devil!!

Cap Loves Troy P 43!!! He's simply one of the best players I've ever seen play the game. And his humble, quiet nature makes him even moreso.

Love ya Troy and I always will!!

I knew it was coming too I always battle with my boss would we have mad the playoffs last year with a healthy palamalu...... are you kidding me haahhahahaha. I always hear one player can not make a difference well last night troy proved why he is so important. There is no doubt in my mind the ratbirds would be done last year Palamalu would have been healthy but hey it's this year baby and it's on we got him back bring it on. Tom baby.
