    Polamalu does things his own way

    Troy Polamalu, who already has unorthodox training routines, has concocted an unusual recipe for getting healthy.

    The Steelers' strong safety has been plagued by an injured right shoulder since the opener against Miami.

    He played each of the past two games, although he was listed as questionable for each.

    Over the past three days, Polamalu went through an intense rehabilitation routine that he described as "Eating junk food and watching movies."

    "That's the truth," Polamalu added for the disbelieving. "Relax the mind, the body follows."

    Polamalu, who disdains the use of weights to train, has mocked the regimen in training camp and the use of Gatorade as a thirst-quencher, practiced again yesterday.

    Despite his shoulder injury, the two-time Pro Bowl strong safety has not missed a practice this year.

    "It feels great, really good," Polamalu said.

    And the movie he watched that helped the healing process?

    "My wife and I watched 'Spaceballs'."
    As long as he's healthy for us he can use whatever rehab he wants

    Well when I watch movies and eat junk food I know my body relaxes.... especially around the waistline

    Whatever it takes for him though, I just want to see a two armed Troy on the field Sunday night!

    Hopefully this means Troy will be back to playing at his usual "ludicrous speed", and he'll make sure Ben doesn't "switch from suck to blow".

    I have a new nickname for Troy= Troy "Superfly" Polamalu. This boy flies around the field like a Taz Devil. He is the best safety I've ever seen play this game. I am so happy that the Steelers got this man.
