Congrats to Troy Polamalu for netting AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. So we get to show love here with the typical old/rare pic of the winner looking awkward with random female fans.
Honestly, this picture (taken from here) is nearly 5 years old. Troy was still a young guy with seemingly limitless potential. Now, he’s making the play that could’ve decided the AFC North if the Steelers can finish out the season on top. That play, the fantastic strip-sack of Joe Flacco last game, was admittedly awesome and one that only a handful of players seem to make. Troy is just one of those players.
He finished with 5 tackles, 4 of ’em solo, the sack, forced fumble and 2 QB hurries.
Troy won the award a long time ago, and the pic we used then was a classic shot next to a whole metric ton of candy.
Congrats to Troy. Go Steelers.
