Proof That Troy Polamalu Is A Ball Magnet (Video)
Three games into the 2010 season it is safe to say that Troy Polamalu is the front-runner for Defensive Player of the Year honors. The Steelers strong safety currently has 15 total tackles, two interceptions, two pass deflections, and he always seems to find himself right in the middle of the action.
Many football pundits choose to refer to Polamalu as a “ball hawk”, because of his ability to consistently find the ball, but I would opt to label him as a “ball magnet”, because of the ball’s ability to find him. Heck, the guy is even making interceptions while he is resting on the sidelines.
That would end up being Polamalu’s only interception of the game. Unfortunately for him, you wont see it anywhere on his stat line.
