Seems like LeBeau kept him in the backfield a lot, I guess still taking care of him.

I look forward to the airborne Troy coming to a station near me sometime soon!

Except when he blitzed late, picked his own player and Pitta got that long catch on 3rd down.
Basically didnt notice him at all today.

He was outta position and in no mans land a couple of times. He looked a bit chubby too. Why did he have his hair tucked in this time during the game? Is his hair injured too?? ;)

Head and Shoulders put it in the contract for Insurance reasons

Good to see him on the field. Not sure that his assignments in the D were all effective, but I thought he looked good on some plays.

But his hair was flowing earlier in the season. Is it a new contract?

Nah. The Ravens are scratchers and hair-pullers...

There seemed to be some confusion on that play.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Polamalu make a big stop in the backfield on the drive that ended with Harrison's sack fumble?

Agree. He did nothing that Will Allen couldn't do. Is this the Troy we will have going forward?

He did and I'm not sure what people expect from the guy on his first day back. He wasn't in on all the plays and Will Allen has been impressive but even with Troy getting back in to game shape he's no where close to as explosive NOR do defenses fear Will Allen. They certainly fear Troy Polamalu. They handled him with kid gloves today to make sure he could stay healthy. We'll get the Troy we know and love when it matters. I thought he looked good in his spot play and did blow up the back field on the one and came damn close to timing up a snap count early in the game.

The hair is going to get chopped and/or majorly restructured this year.

He always tucks his hair inside the helmet during pregame, then unleashed the mane at game time.
