A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation. And consider this your open thread for discussing the days events and, well, anything else that comes to mind about the Black and Gold.
– Worth posting because it’s been true over the past month: Great moments in unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merchandise. Troy Polamalu covers everything. [PSAMP]
– Speaking of Troy … he’s the AFC Defensive Player Of The Week for the second week in a row. He and James Harrison are both legitimate contenders for the Defensive Player Of The Year Award. [Steelers]
– The Steelers defense had a slow start on Sunday, but man did they rebound. [Behind The Steel Curtain]
– And for your random YouTube of the day: Remember the Troy Polamalu blitz and strip of Joe Flacco? The Steelers ran the exact same blitz in the first quarter of that game and it was again perfect. Polamalu was unblocked and tackled Willis McGahee for a loss in the backfield.
