Pollard talks MAD game. He says all the right things better than any safety
prospect this team has ever had. I'm anxious to watch the train wreck on
Sunday just to see how Pollard plugs that sieve known as our defensive
backfield.

Before we get too excited, Pollard was the starting safety vs. the Raiders last year when McFadden went for 160+ yards. And he was the safety when Lendale White (when he was close to 280 pounds) busted an 80 yard run, White and CJ combined for like 300+ rushing yards. Not to spoil the sentiment but he's been a victim to gashings before. I wouldn't be surprised to see the circus continue Sunday.

In the video, he subtly placed the bulk of the blame for those performances
on the lack of ability of his front seven. He was almost giddy about the
talent of his supporting cast. We'll see on Sunday, but it's good that Kubiak
ain't waiting for players like Fred Bennett to "turn it around." Might as well
start Brice Mccain. At least he has the speed to make up for an initial
mistake.

I agree for the most part. This dude sat at home without hearing from the other 31 teams. I find it hard to believe those 31 teams are set at the SS position.

But heck, he'd be an upgrade if he just flopped his body in the gap he was assigned. At least get in the way so the rest can catch up.

If you recall, there was something that had to do with league rules that if he got signed by a certain week he had to make a guaranteed amount of how much he was making guaranteed with the other team. After week 1 or two, a team could sign them to their terms or something like that. That could explain why he had to wait to get signed and why he chose Houston could be because of Gibbs aside from we may have bee the first to ask.

As for the news of him signing, I'm a little disappointed because I thought I was going to get the start when the team signed me.

our front 7 play has been awful as well. A few moments of individual brilliance from a couple of players but awful on balance. He was a FA for a reason, but he may be the best SS on the roster. That tells me something about our talent forecasting abilities.....well, it tells me it hasn't changed.

I have to blame big runs on the safety, that is their purpose out there. And it was Lendale White, if he can't run down that fat whale turd then thats pathetic. But there is way more talent here on defense than in KC so I give him that. I love McCain getting reps, he's a better corner than Bennett right now. I would rather have GQ in over Bennett to be honest.

Each year there's a free agent acquisition at Safety, and the guy comes in and plays well for several games.

And every year, there somebody different playing Safety. Doing the same things. Each year.

We always are amazed at the guy's immediate impact, and then the honeymoon ends because the problem is that we can't face weak offenses for all 16 games every year.

At some point, this defense is going to ripped to shreds again.

The linebackers are the only consistently good group out there. They are the backbone of this jellyfish defense right now.

We need better talent in the secondary and on the line. They look OK against weaker teams with weak QBs. Then they get burned by QBs who know how to beat the line's "allllmost there, just one more inch to go!" pass rushing pressure and the secondary's 10-yard cushions.

The linebackers were the "X" factor today, IMO.

Pollard does improve our tackling vs. the running game, though. He is getting in there and making solid contact instead of weird angles that make a guy bounce off like a pinball. Glover Quinn had good tackling technique, too. I'm thinking we went with a secondary lineup that played well vs. the run. Did anybody ever see Fred Bennett on the field today?

I saw him when a relatively big play went his way. That was the only time I saw him though not surprisingly. Don't remember which play it was.

I'm a fan of seeing how a Wilson/Pollard combo does. Pollard brings a presence vs the run none of the rest of them can offer, and Wilson is our best safety in coverage.

He was solid. Really wanted we wanted to see out of our safety, gap responsible, brought the wood on that Louis Murphy? reception on the sideline, he was in good position on a swing, and all around he performed well.

On a side note all the safeties looked good today, we got a bit of Barber, Busing and Pollard, and I wasn't disappointed in any of them. Although, I think it was Barber over the top on that dropped Louis Murphy sure touchdown when he beat Robinson and Russell threw over the wrong shoulder.

Every year we have a new DB acquisition come in and play awesome their first season. Dunta Robinson, Will Demps, Eugene Wilson, Fred Bennett, Jacques Reeves, just to name a few.

Once our coaches have them for a full offseason, they suck and termed to be in a "slump." Go figure

Yeah, I think he was in relief sometime late in the game and on special teams.

Rightfully so, a 4th and 6th round rookie can outplay you Freddy B. It's not even close.

Quin-Geez, this guy looked like a player. Even if he did give up the catch the receiver felt the ground immediately and he even did a good run supporting CB impersonation. Tackling in the secondary was a plus yesterday thanks to GQ and Pollard and addition by subtraction of Bennett.

Pollard, wow first off....that guy looks like a truck and wasn't afraid to throw that big frame into runner's way. Played VERY solidly and with 10 days of practice started and handled a whole game. Outstanding. I know it looks like it at first but I don't think he'll be the Will Demps of this year. I think this is our SS for a while.

If you're talking about Fred Bennett then that was when Oakland converted a 4th and 9 I believe (could be wrong). I remember seeing him one time when Oakland converted and the ball was thrown to a guy who was just passed him near the sideline. Fred was standing there flat footed looking completely lost. The guy caught the ball, Fred turned around, and someone other than Fred drove the guy out of bounds.

I'm sure he was back out there at some point but I don't remember seeing him again after that. I think it was on the 4th and 9.

The thing that I would say about Petey is that he was pretty good for us from 2003-2006. In '07 and '08 he was pretty wretched but he had already played 4 seasons of pretty good football by that time. I think Bennett's length and ball skills led to a few exciting plays as a rookie. Unfortunately, he doesn't bring much else to the table and he is really being exposed these days.

Pollard did hit hard but I am more interested if the opponent goes down. He seems to have good tackling technique from what little I was able to see. The defense over all tackled more soundly. Diles, Ryans and Cushing did their usual thing but SMith and Okoye seemed to actually have a fire.

One thing is for sure though, Arizona's offense is 1000 times better then Oakland's. I love that we are making changes to our lineup, looking to improve, but it will take me more then a game against the Raiders to be convinced. To make a playoff push, we will need to beat some of these higher quality teams in some ugly games, meaing our defense will need to hold them to under 20 points consistently. Go Texans.

True, but they look like Oakland's defense in the face of heavy pressure, so hopefully we continue that trend.

what all these players have in common to me is they were motivated to prove themselves in the league, the Texans obliged always looking to add moxie & swagger in the back-end, roster spots rotate, & schemes ever changing to accomadate players abilities. Then reality sets in & what got them run from their last stint carrys over into the next season.

Texans have needed help in every area as if they can't shake the expansion label. Safety has not been prioritized like DL, OL, LB or QB. Your absolutely right its been a swinging door policy in the secondary, but if the DL finally blossoms, OL remains steady, Schaub reamains upright & LB's teeth of the defense, Saftey & CB will be upgraded in the next couple drafts, depending on available talent. Glover 4th & McCain 6th are both steps in the right direction but where not first day picks for reasons.

I hope the Texans can reach agreement with Dunta Robinson this offseason then a 1st or 2nd rd. grade Safety can be resolved via the draft :cool:

I'm a big Dunta Robinson fan. I'm one of the few who is not angry at him for his holdout and whatnot. I was really really glad to see him return.

That being said... Dunta Robinson looked lost yesterday along with Bennett. It seemed like that 4th and 9 was more of a blown coverage plan by Robinson, not Bennett. I'm in no way advocating Fred Bennett. I want him off the field. Just saying that Robinson looked pretty bad yesterday. Seemed like that their receivers were dropping passes in the area of Robinson. Some of those drops could have easily been a TD based on where Dunta Robinson's positioning was at the time of the drop.

He looked really bad yesterday. I hope he pulls it together for the Arizona game.

I am going to hold my judgement on Pollard after seeing this game. He was fine in the first half but in the second half, when the offense spread us out he looked suspect. Especially on all the Vernon Davis TDs. It looked as if they attacked him with a WR on the outside running a post to make him bite over to that side and then throw to the TE in the seams and that was hard for him to defend.

This is going to be critical over the next few weeks as we face T.O. in Buffalo and of course Indy and their pass happy offense.

He did make some plays though.

Demeco messed up on two of those Davis TDs too...he had his back turned to the QB both times. Pollard and Ryans should have had better coverage than what they did.

It was obvious that the Texans didn't game plan for Alex Smith and that spread offense they ran.

Yes that T.O. he now has a QB that is getting him the ball though. Also Lee Evans is on the other side. I'm not going to sleep on a team playing at home. We are on the road and we typically don't do well.

In a strange sense I'm kind of glad that our team had that break down in the second half because I'm hoping our heads will not be in the clouds because of it.

10-26-2009, 11:21 AM
As I posted here two weeks ago, Pollard not only hits, he tackles. Again this game, I saw him make very good wrap up tackles. Now if I am going to compliment him he also gets criticism. If he did say as Mark V. reported on 610 this morning that the dbacks had slacked up after half time, then he needs to feel the response of fans. We are not good enough to get that attitude. Still, he seems to be a remarkable find right up there with drafting Diles imo.

I don't know how we do against the spread offense, even with full preparation, if we keep bunching up for the run and put no pressure on the QB with our infamous 4 man rush. The coaching plan can't seem to mix it up and/or disquise our D to half way effectively play the run and the pass.............It seems to be a matter of either / or. :chef:

Pollard talking about the win in Buffalo over at HT.com:

(On the personality of the defense) "We're mean and we have to be mean. Us being nice is giving them yards. They're going to continue, they're going to step on us any way they can. I think if we come out and hit them and continue to hit them, continue to take the ball away from them you're going to see big things happening with this defense and with this team."

(On if he brought meanness to the team) "I'm just a football player. Me coming in, I thank God every day and I continue to say that for giving me a shot here and Mr. McNair and Mr. Smith opening up their door for me. I just bring what I have and what I have is I love to go out and play the game of football, I love to go out with my teammates. We pull off wins. This team is 5-3 right now and we're going to hostile place next week and we're excited about it. We're not going to shy away from anything. I think we continue to get better day in and day out."

(On if he hit someone hard in today's game) "I had fun doing it, I really did. This team, this whole defense did. We walked in and we saw them trying to do things in there, the big thing. I have to tip my hat off to the coaches because everything that they did we practiced in practice. We've seen it. We let one get away from us, but it's football. Nothing's perfect, that's why it's a game and like I said, we've got to continue to get better."

I just bring what I have and what I have is I love to go out and play the game of football, I love to go out with my teammates. We pull off wins. This team is 5-3 right now and we're going to hostile place next week and we're excited about it. We're not going to shy away from anything. I think we continue to get better day in and day out."

(On if he hit someone hard in today's game) "I had fun doing it, I really did. This team, this whole defense did. We walked in and we saw them trying to do things in there, the big thing. I have to tip my hat off to the coaches because everything that they did we practiced in practice. We've seen it. We let one get away from us, but it's football. Nothing's perfect, that's why it's a game and like I said, we've got to continue to get better."

Not only does he know how to lay a hit, but this young man also knows how to handle himself. I like that.

At the end he wiffed on a tackle, came back the next play and made a tackle for loss of yards. I'm loving his energy and agressive nature on the field, and along with Quin and DR we have some VERY NASTY hitters in the backfield :)

I like it (might change it to an 18 or 10 or something) :clap:

If only next season we can get another safety to pair with him

*edit* ... I didn't realize it was a fan club that was corresponding the date of the fan club with him knocking out brady

I like the shirt though, might have to change it to Texan colors and the date he started playing for us (if he stays a Texan)
