Default Bernard Pollard

Insert him into the lineup against Oakland and we have yet to allow more than about 50 yards rushing. Other guys have definitely made a big impact on that stat but Pollard has been doing his part against the run and I haven't noticed him do anything terrible against the pass either. I think he has a better chance at sticking on this team and playing well in the future (as opposed to some of the other "band-aid" safeties we have had) for two reasons:
1. He is still young
2. He has a decent pedigree being a recent 2nd rounder.
What do you guys think about his play so far?

A very pleasent experience with him on the team. I also LOVE Quin in rushing defense, they tackle hard, often for losses and really wrap up their opponents!

He's definitely been an upgrade, he led KC in tackles last season and he is always by the ball...plays heads up ball too. Also, he doesnt seem that bad when it comes to coverage.

Also, Jacques Reeves has been quite a bit of help too in coverage.

Yeah, Quin has been nice.

Default Re: Bernard Pollard

He's very good against the run. He's not a complete safety though. He will get beat in pass protection at times.

But he's an upgrade over what we have. I still expect that position to be 1 of 3 major priorities for this team in the future.

You'll notice that our tackling improved drastically when guys like he and Quinn (And Diles after Cushing came back) were inserted.

Default Re: Bernard Pollard

I like him, I think he gets targeted in the pass game a little often but he's always flying to the ball in run support and brings a wham with him. Big frame matches up with guys like Benson too.

I see Quin moving to FS when Wilson's contract is up. His tackling is great and his coverage is good too.

understatement

pollard has been awesome since hes been here period.......no more brainfart going for 60 yards 2 or 3 times a game since hes been in

and ohhh those knocks about him not being that good in coverage was obviously overblown as well.....hes been just fine...........

Reeves and Pollard have been very nice additions. It was nice to see 60 minutes worth of quality D. Did anyone else watch CC Brown getting scorched in the NO-NYG game? Think of where we would be if he were still starting for us. UGH!!!

Default Re: Bernard Pollard

Like Pollard implied in that interview after he had just signed with the Texans, a lot of his coverage deficiencies were exposed due to the simple fact that Kansas City had a bad front 7 and the QBs had ample time to pick apart the KC secondary. With our front 7 getting decent, sustained pressure, he's been able to react much quicker and bring the wood.

Obvious sarcasm. But in seriousness, he made every effort to stop and just kept sliding on that play. There shouldn't have been a penalty at all, but at least the refs only called a 5-yarder on that one and it didn't hurt us.

Wrong. It was running into the kicker. I say a five game suspension.

He was flagged for Running into the Kicker, not Roughing the Kicker. There is a big difference. I know you were probably being sarcastic, but could you at least be accurate?

I want to re-watch but I saw him in some sort of deep zone position a few times. Not a safety but some kind of semi-safety looking thing.
