Pollard initially started taking out Patriot players as a Kansas City Chief when he took out Tom Brady low and ended his season. Since he has been with the Ravens he has injured Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski and now Ridley. Concussions are so prevalent in the NFL because of players like Pollard that think they can run as fast as they can and dive head first into people just because they have a helmet on.
One of my weird philosophies in football has to do with concussions and how they should be dealt with. I think the NFL should go back to leather helmets for one season and see if these clowns stop running head first. They believe they are invincible and they aren’t the ones that have to pay for the consequences; I’ve got one word for players like that, Dirty. He plays the game of football like an ass hole shoving people when they are out of bounds, on the ground and after the play.
I do want to say it has been a terrific year for the Patriots and getting to the AFC Championship game is a prize in and of itself, but when you’re so close it’s always hard to lose. Congratulations to the Ravens in the win and I speak for every Patriots fan when I say we will loathe ESPN’s coverage leading up to the “Harbaugh Super Bowl”.
