The Steelers have been negotiating with the agent for safety Troy Polamalu over the past several days, an 11th-hour attempt to sign the NFL defensive player of the year before the season begins Sunday. Polamalu is entering the final season of his contract, and their previous discussions this summer with agent Marvin Demoff went nowhere and stalled. After the Steelers signed linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a six-year, $50 million contract two weeks ago, they decided they could do no more extensions until after the season.

In NFL locker rooms, respect isn't earned only on the field. The almighty dollar also helps. When the Cleveland Browns signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a five-year, $68 million contract in May that included $45 million guaranteed, it affirmed his reputation as one of the top cornerbacks in the game - and his value to the AFC North franchise. "What sets Joe Haden apart? He's not an average corner," Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith said. "His contract, that shows you he's not average.

It's the first question on many people's lips when they meet Maika Polamalu. "'Are you related to Troy?'" recounted the Navy junior linebacker, who is first cousins with the Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety. "That's always the first thing. It doesn't matter where I am or what I'm doing. That's always the first question. " It's an inquiry that might grate someone with a thinner skin, but Maika (pronounced MY-kuh) Polamalu, 21, just smiles. "I'm proud of my cousin, and I'm proud of his accomplishments," he said.

Player A has been targeted 26 times in his past four games, catching 14 passes for 179 yards and no TDs. Player B has been targeted 23 times in his past four games, catching 13 passes for 239 yards and no TDs. Player A is Anquan Boldin, whom the Ravens traded to the San Francisco 49ers during the offseason. Tandon Doss, the player the Ravens drafted -- and re-signed -- to be Boldin's replacement, is Player B. I am not presenting these two stat lines to suggest the 3-4 Ravens don't miss Boldin.

The Ravens and Steelers won't be tiptoeing into the water at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. They are taking the plunge into the season with one of the most critical games on the 2011 slate for each squad. That's not to say the season opener is a make-or-break game for either team, though there is more pressure on the Ravens to win and put the pressure back on the Steelers to defend their home turf later in the season. So what do the Ravens need to do to beat Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers on Sunday?

As if the Ravens offense didn't have enough to worry about in Sunday's showdown against the NFL's top-ranked defense, the Pittsburgh Steelers might just welcome back a seven-time Pro Bowler to the fold. Strong safety Troy Polamalu fully participated in Wednesday's practice, his first since straining his right calf during a 16-14 win against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 7. It would appear that the league's Defensive Player of the Year in 2010 is moving forward towards returning for Sunday's contest at M&T Bank Stadium.

If the NFL is feeling pressure about facing hundreds of concussion-related lawsuits now, Troy Polamalu's startling admission Wednesday might have league officials feeling even more stressed about what the future holds. In a radio interview with Dan Patrick, the Pittsburgh Steeler's hard-hitting safety copped to having suffered at least eight or nine concussions during his career. And he added he expected the number to be higher by the time he retires. He also told Patrick that he had lied about having a concussion in order to get back into a game.

While you're agonizing over the inconsistent performance of the Ravens the past two weeks and wondering what all that might mean when they play the Steelers before a national television audience at Heinz Field, you can take some comfort in the fact that you are not alone. The same kind of soul-searching is going on in Pittsburgh, even after the Steelers dispensed with the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Steelers appear to be on the rise. They've won four straight games and have the best record in the AFC (6-2)

Greeting, football fans. This week, we're taking our popular "Five Things" template we use to break down each Ravens game, and expanding to the rest of the NFL. Each week, we'll try to look at some of the trends and issues we noticed around the league. As always, if you don't like the column, which appears only on the web, we promise a full refund.   Kevin Van Valkenburg   1. Everyone loves Troy Polamalu because he's such a nice guy and he's been a dynamic player, but he's a prime example of how the Steelers have drifted from their core philosophy a bit. They used to let their aging players walk and become free agents. Now they sign them to extensions.

There's been a startling amount of talk about the aging of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, a unit that surrendered the fewest points last season and boasts the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in strong safety Troy Polamalu. The media has often noted that the Steelers have eight defensive starters 30 years or older as the team heads into Sunday's season opener at Baltimore. But Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis, who - at 36 - is the third oldest player between these teams behind Pittsburgh quarterback Charlie Batch and inside linebacker James Farrior, is ignoring the age issue.
