    Troy Polamalu Is Our MVP

    The Steelers are 28-9 wit Polamalu in the lineup and 7-9 without Him. Opponents score 14.8 Points WITH him and we give up 21.6 WITHOUT him. It is clear that we need to keep him healty. I have never EVER seen a team so dependant on a defensive player. Ever.

    No question he is one of the BEST steeler MVPs of all time.

    That said, he has played in only ONE 16 game season in his entire career.. He is hurt too much and his body is failing him now. He is on his way out.

    Joe Greene, Mel Blount. The NFL had to change it's rules because Blount was so outstanding in coverage.

    They actually changed the rules because Blount was so physically dominant he beat the crap out of the WRs at the LOS of scrimmage and they never got into their patterns. He was also very good in coverage but it was his physicality that got the rules changed.

    Being so successful at being physical ____IS____ why he was so good in coverage. He was allowed to harass WRs all the way down the field, making it impossible for them to get open. Prior to Blount, there was no 5-yard rule on how long a CB could make contact with WR. I was well aware of this, but short-handed it to saying the rules were changed b/c of his awesome coverage, which was due to how physically dominant he was.
