Now this looks like a job for me, so everybody just follow me, ’cause we need a little controversy, ’cause it feels so empty, without me. -Eminem
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Look who’s back, back again. Troy Polamalu is back. Tell a friend. Tell a friend that after two weeks off to rest his knee, Troy Polamalu is back with a vengeance. Vengeance is a dish best eaten cold. Vengeance is mine and I will repay, sayeth the Lord. Polamalu made folks pay last night all right. Made them pay with three big tackles. Made them pay with one big interception. Made them pay with two big passes defended. When this guy is healthy, nobody’s defense is as good as the Pittsburgh Steelers defense. Nobody’s.
There’s a reason Troy Polamalu has been to five straight Pro Bowls. There’s a reason Troy Polamalu has been a three time All-Pro defensive back. There’s a reason the Steelers gave him the biggest contract in team history. That reason? He’s good. He’s real good. His blend of speed, anticipation and instinct makes him the standout player he is.
You saw it last night. You saw the Steelers clinging to a four-point lead. You saw Polamalu intercept Kyle Orton at Denver’s 25. Hooray Troy Polamalu! That interception led to a Big Ben Roethlisberger 25-yard touchdown strike to Mike Wallace with just 7:03 left. That interception led to the Steelers busting this game wide open. Just like his 4th quarter interception return for a touchdown in the 2009 AFC Championship game led the Steelers to victory and another Super Bowl appearance. That’s what big players do. They make big plays.
After seeing Polomalu and the Pittsburgh defense last night, nobody should want to face these Pittsburgh Steelers.
