Found October 27, 2011 on The Rap Sheet:
This may be the most non-shocking news in the history of the world. On the Patriots scout team, the guy playing the role of Steelers star safety Troy Polamalu is none other than Ross Ventrone. The super sub from Villanova is the obvious choice. I mean really… look at his hair! Look at Polamalu’s hair. They’re almost identical. How could anyone do it better? Now, Ventrone could say it’s not only because of the hair… but let’s be real. “Nah, they told me to be him, so I’m just trying to give the best look I can as him,” Ventrone told me. “He’s a great player, so I’m just trying to see what he does and make it look as much like him as possible. … But the hair helps out as much as possible.” Yes, I’d say it does.

Ross Ventrone Simulates Troy Polamalu in Key Role on Patriots Scout Team

Razorback Maquel Wade Channels His Best Troy Polamalu, Plus a Celebration

Early in the 3rd quarter of the Arkansas vs. Vanderbilt game, Arkansas’ Maquel Wade had a vicious early (and very illegal) hit on Vanderbilt’s Jonathan Krause.  Adding insult to injury he decided it would be a smart thing to celebrate the penalty.   Not a very smart move.  The early hit got me thinking of an old Troy Polamalu hit while I was in school at USC.  You can see...

Send Patriots Reporter Jeff Howe a Question for His Weekly Mailbag

The Patriots are well-rested and ready for a physical battle against the Steelers in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have a three-game winning streak, but none of their five victories have come against an impressive opponent. This could look similar to the Patriots' win in Pittsburgh last year.
