    I believe the game was from 2008 against the Eagles. Watch the Top 10 Steelers on NFLN and the play is shown.

    That was the backwards tackle. Troy made some kind of amazing tackle in the 2005 AFC championship where he dodged a blocker and and took out the ball carrier. That's probably the one skyhawk is referring to. I know I didn't have a DVD recorder back then, but I may have recorded it off of the NFL Network a few years later, so I'll have to check my collection.

    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.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    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.

    That troy tackle was definitely the Broncs afc championship game. Someone from this board had it replay in their sig.

    Mel Blount was just bigger than the wr's. He couldnt play today. Why isnt he mentioned as a great cover corner? Because he wasnt. He was just physically bigger. Troy Polamalu can play in any era. Joe Green would be a MLB in todays game (Kirkland)
