My 15-year old son is getting disillusioned with the non-sportsmanship on the Dallas Cowboys, from Jerry Jones down to TO. He's seen how I've stuck with the Steelers through thick and thin, and I think he might be in the process of making an informed decision to become a Steeler fan! Of course he used to be one when he was knee high to a grasshopper, but as he got older, peer pressure took its toll. That's OK, I think it counts more now!

It hit home when I told him that the Steelers just don't get respect from the national media, mainly because they don't have all those Hollywood types. He said "You mean they are like the Spurs of the NFL?", and I said, "Yeah ..." (For those that don't follow basketball much, the Spurs have no media stars, they share the ball, look to pass before shooting, hard work ethic etc., he kind of hit the nail on the head).

Anyway, he's really into TP, and I was telling him about that backward tackle that one of us had as a sig a few months back. I went to youtube to look for it, but couldn't find it ... does anyone have a link or anything?

Thanks!

I've looked for it and asked for it as well. If you get it post it here!

Wish I had that also. That's one game I did not record. :(

What backwards tackle? The one against Denver in the 2005 AFC Championship?

Sweet tackle.

Many on this board have it.

I think the game you speak of was the 2005 AFCCG against Denver on a screen play.

I think this is the one you're talking about vs. Denver....

Just tell him that Troy's nickname is "The Big Fundamental" like Timmy D's. Either that, or tell him that Duncan is also known as the Tasmanian Devil. No, nevermind. :lol:

I think it was the Eagles game. It was the game he made that diving interception.

Not the one from a few weeks ago. I'm talking about the first sweet diving interception.

Find a video of the over turned interception against the colts.... That was simply amazing.... If that one doesn't get overturned, the one he had earlier this year is merely the 2nd best int of his life.

Ridiculous. I wish I had Troy's athletic ability for one day. I'd just go to malls/airports and run around diving over, through, around people for hours....

Highlights of that game (if you can call them highlights, since that was by far our worst game of the year) can be found here. Troy's interception is at about the 1:30 mark, but the backward tackle is nowhere to be found, unfortunately. :(

the backwards tackle was definitely earlier this season.

i'm not sure which game, but unquestionably, one of the most incredibly athletic plays i have ever seen!

That's right! It was the Eagles game! I knew it was from one early in the season.

Jooser - it wasn't the Broncos tackle. In this one Troy was completely backwards and reached behind himself with both hands to grab the runner.

It was superhuman. We all jumped pointed and just looked, before we could talk about it. Absolutely amazing.

i have a ton of respect for Troys ability, but that play put him on a different level, to me.

Someone started a thread a while back- about the best Steeler's of all time, and the best at their respective positions.

Troy is in the top five as far as defensive secondary goes, but

i think he is quite possibly the best overall player- which distinction is currently held by Jack Ham.

OK, I think I remember that now. I'm on it, see it I can find it...zoooooom!

Pretty sure it was a tackle of Westbrook who left that game midway through the second quarter (if anybody is looking through a recording of the entire game)

If you're trying to convert your kid, the Steeler nation video I find particularly moving.

I've still not found it. I'll continue to search for it, but it's not looking too great right now.

I'm not the world expert here, but I couldn't find it after a pretty long search. Surprising. It was right out of the Marvel comics.

Nope... it's the EAGLES game from this year. Did everybody erase it from their DVR or something?

Sorry, but, that's a sick tackle, regardless.

I think the only way anyone will find it is by subscribing to this thing that Bill Simmons wrote about:


Gift No. 6: NFL Game Rewind ($20). I found out about this and signed up in about 7.3 seconds. It gives you broadband access to any NFL game on demand. You can sign him up for it, print out his username and password, and give it to him. He will love it. And then he will pay even less attention to you.

While it may not be worth $20 to see one tackle, the overall package may be worth investing in. That is pretty sweet I think....

Who else but Polamalu could have people saying something to the effect of, "No...his other backwards tackle!" How sick is that? :lol:

Well, technically, this one is more sideways. :P
