Steelers' Troy Polamalu: Broncos offense was simple

Guess six months isn't enough time to get over a playoff loss. At least that's the thinking of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu.

Polamalu said the playoff loss to the Denver Broncos is puzzling because their offense was not hard to figure out.

"There were so many things about him that were like playing a veteran and so many things like playing a rookie,"  Polamalu told Yahoo! Sports when speaking about of Tebow. "When things break down, (Tebow) is a little like (Steelers quarterback) Ben (Roethlisberger).

Whether he played like a rookie or veteran, Tebow threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns against the league's #1 ranked defense in the Broncos 29-23 overtime victory in the wild-card round last season. He also ran for 50 yards and a score.

When asked about the Broncos offense, Polamalu said "it was an incredibly simple offense that you just don't think can work in this league, but it worked for them with the kind of talent they had."
