The sport of football is both an open book and a very secretive realm. Players and coaches give thousands of interviews, practically saying nothing the entire time. When it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers, both Bill Cowher and Troy Polamalu know this song and dance.
So, when any player and/or coach lets that curtain down and shows fans a glimpse of what is behind it, it can be amazing.
This interaction between Cowher, interviewing Polamalu is absolute gold. You don’t hear these type of stories very often, and getting these behind-the-scenes stories is something all fans should enjoy.

I can’t speak for all Steelers fans, but this past weekend when I heard Polamalu was going to be inducted as a first ballot Hall of Famer, it made my weekend. I didn’t care who won the Super Bowl, but couldn’t wait to celebrate Polamalu, Cowher and Donnie Shell as the latest trio of black-and-gold legends to be forever enshrined in the hallowed halls of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Someone asked me the other day which was my favorite Polamalu of all-time. That is like asking which song is your favorite, but it made me think about it. I still haven’t figured it out yet, but what is your favorite Troy moment? Let us know in the comment section below!
