When Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert sat down and talked to Troy Polamalu in early 2003, he was slightly taken aback.

Troy is a class act on and off the field. He plays with tenacity, courage, bravery, and most important, with honor. Some people have accused him of trying to hurt people, please, the man gets paid to do his job, which he is the BEST at, OF ALL TIME.
My 14 year old son idolizes Troy and has his pictures, jerseys, and any other thing he can get a hold of to cherish forever. See I grew up in NE Ohio and have been a loyal Steelers fan since the 70's. I have never waivered from them and that is what most people don't understand about Steeler fans. We live and we die as a team. Troy, have a great game and may God continue to bless you and your fellow teammates.... Thanks for all of the memories that I have been able to have with me son watching the games.

Scott, lets be real here. Troy is a class act on and off the field, I agree. Ed Reed and Troy play two different positions, and they are the best at their respective positions. I am a die hard Ravens fan, and I wouldn't mind Troy suiting up in purple. The thing is, if asked, I would take Reed any day. I ask you who would you take, it would be Troy. Its always going to be that way. Ravens, Reed, Steeltown, Troy. www.birdsofbaltimore.com

Dear Mr. Birds of Baltimore.

Well said. I agree too, I would love to have Ed Reed in those beautiful Steeler colors. But I also agree that while they remain in their respective positions and city's they are the king of their individual postion. Scott

P.S. It is ironic that u responded to this. While at a Super Bowl party, I was involved in a discussion with several other men over who else they would take, and ironically, my son and I agree that Ed Reed is the person that we would take and most respected.
