    move on people, AJ green today is better than chad johnson was yesterday, a legit elite WR with hands and adjustments to the ball that legit rivals randy moss. the fact that it was him that came down with that ball does not surprise me at all, the man is an acrobat

    I blame Clark he turned his hands to catch the ball instead of defending it.

    Also I thought Troy got tripped up just a bit right before green went up!

    Troy could have easily batted that ball down or intercepted it. They gave it to him tied in a bow. It's ok. We won.

    UMMM HELLO AJ GREEN IS AFOOT TALLER THAN TROY NOT TO MENTION HE WAS 9 FT IN THE AIR WHEN HE MADE THE CATCH. He would have bumped Clark or have been called for pass interfearence. I love how some people question others efforts like they could do better .Plus it's no biggy we won remember?

    If you want to watch the highlight again it's above, that ball was floated right in there into double coverage and they just let Green catch it.....Polamalu looked up and saw it coming, I'm guessing he was afraid of a pass interference call or saw Clark and thought he was going to make a play on it or something. But you got to jump up and punch or intercept that ball. It seems like Polamalu has had alot of success blitzing and making huge plays for us throughout the years when we needed it, but sometimes as a coverage guy I question him.
    We all saw the play lmfao. It was mostly on Clark which we all know sucks at coverage. I think this year in the draft we draft a safety to replace him in 2 years. But yea, we saw the play.

    So Polamalu gets a pass for taking his eyes off the ball, but Clark gets blamed for being 'bad' in coverage and distracting him.

    Clark had a better chance on the play than Troy did if you rewatch it. Troy doesnt get a pass, well maybe he does since hes bailed us out alot. I never see Clark bailing us out at all. Only thing I remember clark doing is knocking out wes welker, talking trash to Brady and getting shitted on by him, Not being there to help gay out when the ravens drove 92 yards on us(well atleast the last play) calling a guy a "retard" on the radio,Making rediculous comments about his last fine.etc etc

    In looking at the video in regular speed, at the 0:06 mark, I see Polamalu running with A.J. Green and Ryan Clark coming into the picture. At the 0:07 mark, Polamalu has his arms engaged with Green, vying for position to make a play on the ball. Ryan Clark looks like he may be about 2 or 3 feet away but enters the play and starts looking up at the ball. As the ball nears, you see Ryan Clark puts his hands up to try and intercept the ball, but A.J. Green is in a higher (better) position to make the catch.

    Yes, Clark is not very good in coverage but at least he (Clark) tried to make a play by thinking he could intercept the ball. What did Polamalu do? Nothing. He took his eyes off the ball and allowed Green to get into position to make the catch.

    Polamalu always gets a pass from most Steeler fans....no matter how bad he plays.

    You've never seen Clark bail the Steelers out? Ever?

    Well, who was it that forced that fumble on Ray Rice last year in the playoffs that led to a touchdown? Also, who was it that picked off Flacco in last year's playoffs, which led to the Steelers tying the game?

    I'll wait for your answer.....

    AJ Green is an absolute monster, so it wasn't surprising he came down with that. But it was clear that Troy was setting up to make a play on the ball, then Ryan Clark came barreling in to "save the day" and f*cked him up.
