Obediency

Ok, they won the Super Bowl. But this quote from Troy Polamalu took the cake for me. "Obediency?" That's the problem with other teams. They aren't reading the dictionary to discover hardly used words of the English language! I was actually looking it up to mock him for making up a word. And it really is one. So, props to Polamalu and the Steelers. For off-season homework, I recommend that the Cowboys start with a dictionary. And soon....

And, just as a thought, all of us bloggers, from low ones like me, to great ones, check your sources and your facts. I would have been embarassed.

All-Pro safety Troy Polamalu credits that mind-set to self-imposed discipline, something the older Steelers players make certain every new teammate accepts.

"The leaders on our team — James Farrior, Deshea Townsend, Hines Ward — they understand what it takes to be successful. What it takes is obediency," Polamalu said. "We're a very obedient team. You could tell us to do anything (and) we'll do it, if our head coach tells us to do it — whether it's good or not. That obediency allows us to be closer together."
