This signing indicates that Tomlin obviously thinks he can make Troy fit, and it'll be something I'll watch closely.
            Does anyone realize we're sticking 3-4. And as for the cover 2. Troy may not be a perfect cover safety. He's more like a LB/SS. We use him as a rover. I Hate to hear how he's "Overrated" because he has long hair.... or stupid stuff like that.

            Yea I hear Madden talk about it, but you guys using that as the reason he's overrated? Thats a joke. Learn football.

            Apparently every steeler is overrated. Troy is the best SS in the NFL. Ed Reed is the best FS. They play two different positions.. On 2 different teams.. with 2 completely different set of responsibilities.

            I'm sure Troy wouldn't be as good on the ravens doing Ed Reeds job. But I'm just as sure that Ed Reed wouldn't be just as good being the Steelers SS/Rover.


            I'm not going to deny that I think Ed Reed is the best "Safety" in the league. But I won't say 1 other person is better than Polamalu. He's definitely the most Versatile Safety in the league. He can cover solidly, he's a big hitter, and he's able to blitz/play the run like no body can.


            But saying he's overrated is ridiculous. Sheesh.

              You seem to have a huge grudge against the Steelers. Every time the Steelers or a Steeler player is brought up, you always chide in with some negative remark. I would expect this from a Brown, Bengal, or Raven fan, but I'm just curious where this hate comes from with a Vikings fan. Is it that the Steel Curtain overshadowed the Purple People Eaters? That we helped continue your streak of Super Bowl losses? Is it that we took over the Metro Dome a couple years ago? What's your deal?

                The hair thing is because he stands out on film because of it. Guys with more generic looks are harder to spot and notice.

                How is Polamalu more versatile than Reed? I don't get that sentiment at all. Reed is better in coverage by a wider margin than Polamalu is better close to the line of scrimmage. Hence, Reed is more versatile.

                  Reed is better in coverage.. Polamalu is better against the run and blitzing.

                  We're comparing apples to oranges. Your argument is bad though...

                  Reed is better in coverage... Polamalu is better at the Line of Scrimmage... therefore Reed is better? I said Polamalu is more versatile, he can cover, but he can also play a LB like role at the line of scrimmage.

                  Reed is coverage only really... Polamalu is more "Versatile"

                    I think that includes the one year remaining on the contract.

                          thats a matter of opinion. I find that Troy is a key cog on our defense. I wouldn't have traded Troy for Ed Reed or Adrian Wilson.

                          However, I hate seeing that every Steeler player is overrated. Especially when the excuse is "He gets noticed because of his long hair"..

                          It's not because of his ability or his great plays. Remember the Indy play he got ripped off of? That would've ended the game there. He's made tons of other plays like that. He does it all the time. Yet now he's overrated.

                            you can't really compare troy to other safties as far as coverage and whatnot goes

                            the roles he plays are not the tradition safety roles, he is not usually in traditional safety places, i mean the guy is blitzing just as much as he is covering so to compare him to reed would be pointless

                              No no I know he hits like a mack truck, but I'm saying Ed is asked to be a more finesse coverage getting INTs constantly kinda safety instead of the big hittin run support guy. Ed Reed can support the run with the best fo them, no doubt about that.

                                I think Polamalu, as a traditional safety, is overrated. He is not one. Some people seemingly fail to realize that. But, when used properly he can be deadly. He has such good speed and is a hawk to the ball.

                                IMO, when I first realised he could be seriously exposed was the Ravens game last year. Not sure which one, but he looked lost on some big pass plays for touchdowns and just got beat. He shouldn't have those responsibilities, though. As a Rover he can make the most plays. Fortunately it looks like ya'll found a gem in Anothony Smith. My friend raves about him.
