Hard Hat Award (Game #6, vs. Jax)
Stillers SS Troy Polamalu is the winner of the weekly Hard Hat Award, given to the Stiller player who best embodies the iron-tough, hard-as-steel attitude of the steel workers inside the blast furnace of a still mill.
Pola had yet another high-flying, flash n� slash kind of game in the win over Jax. In the 2Q, he timed the snap and then pounced between center and guard to grab at the QB, forcing an inc. He swooped in to stuff Karim for a 2-yard loss late in the 3Q. On a key 3d & 2 in the 4Q, he slashed in and cut down Drew for no gain. In true Hard Hat fashion, Pola took a blow to the head from Drew�s knee on this play, and was forced to leave the game with concussion-like symptoms.
Kudos to Pola for winning the Hard Hat Award. Wear the Hard Hat proudly, Troy !
