    Re: When did Pollard have his head surgically removed and the rettached?



    It was a clean hit, he left his feet when the play was still in question. You can't stop physics. He had already committed to the hit, and he committed in a clean manner.

    What's funny about the Pollard hit is earlier in the week on NFLN an NFL rep. was explaining why Reeds hit in the Steelers game was illegal and played a clip of the big hit Pollard also had as an example of a clean hit. That hit today looked nearly identical.

    Sorry man, I disagree. I watched the replay of that a few times and Pollard is clearly looking at the ball the entire time he is running at the receiver. As soon as the ball had sailed over the guy's hands, Pollard lowered his shoulder and decked him.

    Clean hit or not, it was unnecessary and a hot headed move. He has to be smarter than that. He has a target on his back anyway because he is a notoriously aggressive player who likes to lay the lumber.

    Except that hit was on a player in the actual field of play. Not against a guy who had no shot at a pass and was already 1 yard out of bounds.

    Have to agree with Wicked here. Under normal football rules, that was a clean hit. But every player knows how closely they're scrutinizing plays like that these days, and he needs to be a lot smarter than that, and to take into account the game situation. That play could have cost us the game, and was completely unnecessary.

    Reminded me of that hit in a preseason game where the reciever landed hard on his back out of bounds after taking a hit, got a concussion and if I'm not mistaken was one of the plays that helped usher in all these new rules regarding protecting the receiver.

    Well that and (what was then) the pending lawsuits.

    If you take off the purple-colored glasses, it's easy to see why that play got flagged.

    That play today reminded me of Darren Stone.

    If you guys dont remember him and the play Im referring to, you're lucky. Lets just say it was a really dumb and unnecessary play that led to a game changing penalty. In the end, it cost the Ravens the game.

    Point is, he needs to be smarter than that and realize the refs are going to be giving him the eagle eye every week.

    This.

    Look, we can all hate the call but this is the NFL today.

    Pollard didn't have to do it and he chose to.

    As soon as he hit the guy I knew the flag was coming.

    He needs to know that as well.

    Haha, you were there too? I have never been so irate over a game before, but that really got me fired up. I couldn't believe how stupid that whole play was and what made it worse was that fucker acting like he was wronged.

    When he made contact they were still in bounds and for all Pollard knew, he could have made a miraculous catch.

    I get why they made the call, but they just as easily could have let it go.

    Pollard watched the pass sail 3 feet over the guy's hands before hitting him. Pollard could have hit him while making an attempt to pull up. He just didnt. Watch the replay man. Pollard very clearly wanted to lay this guy out.

    Why do you drag up such horrific memories, Wicked? Let's leave all the memories of our AFC championship failures in the past.
