    No more excuses from this guy .... none.
    No free pass from me, he needs to get back to his USC physique and mentality. Hes gotten soft both in body and spirit

    Hes part of the problem. Our DL isn't collapsing the pocket like it used to, Aaron Smith is the only one the OL has to account for. We need another play maker that does more then occupy a blocker. So with no pressure or pass rush and our secondary isn't exactly the most feared in the league, the opposing QB's aren't scared to throw at our secondary. Troy used to be a threat, someone that was always accounted for and schemed against, this past year, teams figured out he wasn't the Troy of old and didn't really worry or pay attention to him. Seriously, would you as a offensive coordinator have game planned against him? Yeah he made plays but he was inconsistent and was getting tossed around like a ragdoll going up against 6'5 300lb linemen. He's lighter in the *** and he just doesn't have that attitude like he did coming out of USC. I still like the guy but he needs to get healthy and get back to being a hard hitter and being ruthless.

    Wow, I'm sure Troy will start on a demanding off-season workout regimen right now, just so he doesn't have to worry about your comments on a message board.

    He gets a pass for last year since, for the most part, the rest of the D stepped up for him. Yeah he needs to get back to where he was, but that will happen only one way, get back to that solid, thick SS that we drafted. If Tory gets back to being that Samoan warrior again, we'll be good, if not, I'm sure Tomlin and the Rooneys will have words for him, and that, he might actually be worried about.

    Perhaps he's not going because he doesn't feel he deserves it because he was out with his injuries. He's an upstanding guy so maybe he feels someone else deserves it.


    Thanks Steelers086 for my awesome signature!!!




    Thanks for the new avatar SteelerBee!

    Troy showed signs of getting back to form the last couple games of the year that he played. He still wasn't spot on like he usually is and how we are used to seeing him but overall Im confident he'll come back to offseason workouts and training camp ready to go. Make no mistake, this defense is better when he's on the field and playing like he has up until everything happened this year.

    justice is served, he did nothing this season to even worth being a starter on this team, he made no impact, and should not have even been mentioned as a possible pro bowler, so good thing he got hurt, cause he should not even be allowed near where they play the pro bowl game, cause the game should be for players that actually made impacts

    When was the last time the Pro Bowl was actually all about impact players? It's nothing more than a popularity contest anymore and players get in every year based on past reputation.

    but most of the players now actually deserved to be starters on their own team........ our secondary had some of their best games when troy was in street close this year.......... troy made zero impact this year, and it's sickening to see that a dude got in cause he has faggot hair, which for some reason makes everyone fall in love with him

    I'm not a huge fan of any of our guys in playing in the Pro-Bowl anyways. It's just a retarded chance to get hurt. He needs to recover from his injury, and get in the weight room.
