The announcement of Troy Polamalu’s retirement has sent positive shock waves throughout the NFL.
The debate or conversation is in regard to Polamalu’s worthiness of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Does a decade of dominance at the safety position get him in?
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, a teammate of Ed Reed’s — tells a story to TheMMQB about just how dominant and destructive Polamalu really was.
“The only recollections I have of Troy are bad,” Flacco told Peter King of TheMMQB.com. “All bad.”
Flacco said the rules were always the same with Troy: “Know where he is at all time — and not just in the passing game. Watch where he is before running plays, because he was a force against the run. Every time we played them, that’s the first thing we talked about, and we ended up talking about it all week.”
