    Their hair? Uhhh, that might’ve been a problem.
    At a Super Bowl where there’s been nearly as much focus on shampoos and conditioners as zone blitzes and passing schemes, one of Lombardi’s former players huffed at all the attention going to all that hair, from Polamalu’s out-of-control curls to Matthews’ stringy locks.
