I'd say he's just about right where Troy was in his 3rd year. Troy had plenty of his own issues staying healthy and 100%, as well.


That's a stretch. Troy was otherworldly and 2005 was one of his better seasons. Shazier's instincts will never come close to Polamalu's.


2005 was when Polamalu came into his own.

His first 2 years, he struggled to stay healthy.

Shazier likely isn't a sure-fire Hall of Famer like Polamalu, but he doesn't have anywhere near the help Troy had (our D isn't nearly as good) and it's very early in Shazier's 3rd season.

The reviews so far are very positive.

I'm not happy with Shaz missing tackles. IMHO it is unacceptable. You drive into your target wrap him up and take him to the ground. The whole defense has these same issues to be honest. I don't need Shaz to be elite. I need him to make stops by not missing tackles.

I agree that Troy's defenses certainly helped him, but I would also argue just as much, if not more, that Troy was the straw that stirred the drink. If any one player took that defense into the next level, it was him.

His instincts on that INT were pretty damm good.

T Polumalu had issues with that as well. He'd bounce off players, but blew up plays enough for team mates to make a play. It that regard I'll take the good with the bad.

He turned around right when the ball arrived to make the int and held on. You can't teach that.

Troy flew in and missed tackles, too. Maybe not as many, but he also had more play "in front" of him than Shazier, too.
