Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu admitted that they may have grown complacent to the success they’ve had over the past decade.  He says they have a different feeling this offseason as they prepare for the upcoming season. “There’s a little more of an edge,” safety Troy Polamalu said Tuesday, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, per NFL.com. “Sometimes, when you’ve had consecutive years of some success, you get a little complacent, which is maybe natural, I don’t know. It’s definitely something that we’ve probably dealt with around here a little bit, last season being an example.” I got the impression that the Steelers had a hard time closing out opponents last season and that could be due to complacency.   Need NFL Tickets?
