One of my buddies is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and I've had countless hours of conversation talking about that franchise. He'll call me up the week of a game and the first thing I always ask him - "Is Troy Polamalu playing?" The answer to that basically tells me all I need to know about the teams chances that particular week. Polamalu is one of the best defensive players I've ever seen and his trading card prices have always been surprisingly high for a player who doesn't play offense.
