    Put Ed Reed in the Steelers' system and I bet they get better. The same cannot be said about Troy and the Ravens.

    True, I'll agree with that, but I don't agree with anything that Smokey Joe has said thusfar, people would know Troy's name long hair or short hair because everytime you see a Steelers game highlight he is making plays.

      I think that Polamalu has the ability to play center field and defend the pass if he was asked to, but he's required to be an impact player all over the field.

        It's going to be very interesting to see how Tomlin uses Polamalu in his Cover 2 scheme. Troy has never really been asked to do the deep cover role, not at USC and certainly not in Pittsburgh. This signing indicates that Tomlin obviously thinks he can make Troy fit, and it'll be something I'll watch closely.

          polamalu is so overrated. he is a personailty along with a football player. if it wasnt for the hair and heritage, he would just be another safety and he would be making 10 million less.

            That is going a little far is he Ed Reed no but he is top five at his position he can take over a game.

              It is all about when someone contract expires. Polamalu is a top 5 safety in the NFL and was a significant part to the Super Bowl Steelers a couple years ago. Most people would agree that Ed Reed is better, so wait for his contract to nearly expire and we'll see who is the highest paid safety.

                Basically.

                  So, the Steelers finally have opened up the checkbook and paid one of their player's deserved money. And while a lot of fans argue over who the better safety is, the Pittsburgh Steelers obviously think Polamalu is better and have rewarded him as such. While my personally opinion is that Ed Reed is better than Polamalu that puts Polamalu 2nd, which is still not bad at all.

                  Everybody's contracts are becoming bigger and bigger and this year it shows that with Dwight Freeney's contract and now P's contract. If Ed Reed was to renew his contract this year or next year I'm sure he'd be the highest paid safety. It's all about securing a player who you feel is absolutely irreplaceable to your team and the Steeler's felt that about Polamalu so they gave him top money.

                    I'm sure Alan Faneca is pissed.

                        If its 5 years 33 million thats not a bad deal considering what players are getting paid today. He could have easily made over 50 million in the open market.

                          I'm thinking he'll be used more in a John Lynch/Bob Sanders type of role.

                            Well KC Joyner did have Ed Reed as the most overrated safety in the NFL.

                              I don't know, Reed hits like a Mack truck when he wants to. Ask Koren Robinson.

                                that cant be more than Reed

                                Reed got a 6 year $40 mill

                                Polamalu got 5 year $33 mill

                                Reed makes slightly more
