Polamalu's take on the 'Pittsburgh Legacy'


Posted by ESPN.com staff

TAMPA, Fla. -- Troy Polamalu, when asked to put into his own words the existential meaning of the "Pittsburgh Legacy," came up with this:

"It is to carry on that blue-collar tradition. It has never been a legacy of success, though we have had success. It is a legacy of mentality. I can never see another team having the same relationship with a city that the Steelers have with Pittsburgh."
