Troy Polamalu on Sunday
OK, everyone's been whining about Ben, Haley, etc etc.
BUT what about the performace from Troy???|
- "Legal" missle strike on AJ Green down the sideline from Centerfield.
- Shooting the gap on a run, timing the snap perfectly and getting BJGE for a loss.
- Coming w/ his man in motion, TE sets up in Pass Pro, Troy decides to shoot the A gap and sack Andy Dalton.
I'm really HOPING he has a great offseason b/c I must say....Sometimes it's just not the same w/out watching Troy do those things.
Injuries to players with quick twitch muscles like Polamalu's have an effect that can't be measured until you see him play at 100% health. Dalton is fortunate that he didn't make more big plays, because it didn't appear that he was accounting for Polamalu on every play. I think he got away with a few plays during the game.
