When I first saw Ty Carter I didn't like him. It was his first season with the Steelers in 2004. He was making a special teams tackle on the sideline standing over a player and taunting. He didn't get flagged but I remember how pissed I was at him because it was an important game.
Gradually I have come to appreciate Carter's special teams prowess and his ability to step in for Troy Polamalu or Ryan Clark and hit the "standard." After reading about how he conducts himself in his personal life my appreciation for him grew. Now the AFC has appreciated Ty Carter's performance naming him AFC Defensive Player of the week. Congrats Ty!
