Default The Polamalu Factor

Now i'm not saying this is a sign of things to come. But I did do a double take when I saw the difference.

Since 2009

W-L With 14-4 Without 5-6

PPG Allowed With 14.8 Without 23.2

YPG Allowed With 287.3 Without 320.2

Takeaways With 41 Without 11

Takeaways Differential blew me away.

of course he does. knowing you have one of the best players in the NFL on your side is a huge morale booster.

also looking at last week, the team was playing flat until he made that 1st interception. after that the team played like a team on a mission, he does things that boost the team to a new level and everyone feeds off of it.

Amen!!! Without him we are gonna struggle...somebody on D is gonna have to step up or its gonna be one of those games again!!! If we win I say sit him the last 2 games and get him healthy for the playoffs. Hopefully we can get a first round bye and also get smith back...I know this is wishful thinking and it never goes according to plans!!!

timmons will need to beast it.... we need to throw sanchez off his mark and then the game is ours, sanchez is over-rated but lets make him even more over-rated.

Hopefully one of the backups will step up and play lights out. Coverage will be alot tougher without Troy - that goes without saying. We've seen time and time again how bad the coverage is without him in the game. Right now the team is saying they'll hold him out until the playoffs - like Jim Mora said: PLAYOFFS??!!! - let's think about what needs to be done to win these last 3 games - and go out and execute the plan successfully. I just hope Troy heals quickly.

The lack of INTs when he is not on the field is even more astounding than the turnover differential. Sometimes it seems like he's the only one the opposing offense is scared of in the secondary. Let's just hope we can win today, since I think we can beat the Panthers no matter what. If we get those next 2 games we should get out #2 spot locked.
