Spoken like someone who didnt even watch him play enough to comment.

Troy may not deserve 93, but its pretty clear there are alot of blind Steeler haters in here who just like to bash any high ratings our players get.

And Troy is still absolutely top 5 SS. Kam Chancellor and Eric Berry are the only ones clearly better than him at this point. And this isnt because Troy is elite anymore, but moreso because there arent many great safeties.

Troy has dropped off in coverage, I wont even deny that, but he is still a top 3 box safety in the game and still had a great year. Maybe not 93 good, but IMO, there isnt a single SS at this point who deserves to be rated 93 or higher.

And if you guys want to blame anyone for bad ratings, blame Donny Moore. His ratings are always terrible.

He may not be 93 good, but he is certainly top 5.

Some of you are either drastically underrating Polamalu or drastically overrating the quality of other safeties.

The Steelers defense was terrible and Polamalu and Cam Heyward were the only bright spots. Ike Taylor was the a bottom 5 starting CB, Ryan Clark was THE WORST starting FS, and our pass rush and DLine outside of Heyward were garbage, especially the first 10 games.

Troy, even though he had a few mishaps, was still very good last year, especially in the box. Wasnt great in coverage, but he wasnt terrible either.

Pretty easy to see which of you dont actually watch the games and just make blind, random assessments of players.

In the age of advance statistics and access to coaches film why are we still debating. I was hoping EA would you use the statistic analysis from Pro Football Focus and Football Outsiders to determine the ratings of the players.

This. The injury rating just doesn't have enough (any?) affect on the overall rating. I'd give him good physical ratings, but lower injury ratings. If injury affected overall, that would bring his rating down. I'd pretty much lower all the OVR ratings across the board, but we all know that OVR doesn't really matter much anyway.
