The Pittsburgh Steelers are known for their defensive greats. And now one of their greatest are calling it quits. According to several media sources, Safety Troy Polamalu is retiring from the Pittsburgh Steelers after 12 seasons.
Depending on who you are is what you love (or hate) about him. For many female fans, who proudly sported their pink 43 jerseys and don’t care as much about the ins and outs of the games, they will miss the long flowing hair and the soft spoken demeanor.
For men and women who are more hardcore fans they will miss him flying all over the field and seeing him appear when they least expected it. Many fans have respected him for his dedication on the field.
Bernardo Chua says who probably won’t miss him is opposing players who had to account for the multiple places he lined up on the field and had to hope he wouldn’t jump over the line when on the goal line.
While Polamalu had many great career highlights, time was definitely starting to catch up with him. He was not the dynamic player recently he was in his early days and injuries were catching up. Regardless, he will go down as one of the best of all time and will leave respected by those who cheered for him along with those who played with and against him.
