Default Re: Pollard cut

Supposedly he was being interviewed on the radio this morning in Houston and told them he got cut.

I have mixed emotions on this myself. He did so good for us two years ago but did so bad for us last year. Meh, let him go, get someone else with a tad better coverage skills and still with the hard hitting ability and we will be fine.

Cut? You can be cut even though you're a FA?

Here you go. He wasn't tendered meaning he isn't in their plans and will be a FA when the CBA is signed

Pollard got Pollardized.

Despite the misconception of fans he has never been good in coverage outside of a few highlight reel plays in 2009.

You could put almost anyone back there and improve the pass defense.

Yup, the guy can hit, but can't cover. For a Safety or DB I'd love to have both, but I'd take coverage skills over hitting.

I'm a little ambivalent as well...this just means our secondary got younger.

I don't think young is as bad a problem as bad.

I'd much rather go young, that keep throwing bad players (Wilson) our there.

We were young last year, & our vets let us down a lot more than our young'ns.

Pollard & Wilson were a much bigger part of the problem than Kjac/Allen & Quin.

Pollard basically had a career year with us in 2009 & then water found its level, he was exposed & we found out why he was on the street in the 1st place. I'm happy as hell knowing that he won't be part of the 2011-12 texans defense.

& the bolded is something that many here don't talk about enough. Yes, going young at cb is more often a mistake than not but the young'ns were supposed to be carried by the safeties who both had at least 3 years of experience. & when you look at it that way, there was failure all the way around...

In a few years, your name won't make a lot of sense.


But there's nothing saying your internet persona's name has to make sense.

Take Thunderkyss for example.


What the heck is that?

It was Pollard. Tight ends licked their chops vs us. Between he and Diles gone we may actually be able o stop a big white guy.

I liked Pollard. He seemed like a good guy and I liked his eloquence. As a football player, I liked his willingness to hit.

But how many times did he come out and say something about how the defense was going to play and then have to eat his words. How many times was he the one apologizing for missing tackles? That's not good. Add that to all the times he got turned around and abused in the end-zone and he was just a cheap Roy Williams imitation and that's not a good imitation to be.

Agreed. I never jumped on the Pollard bandwagon and glad I didn't.

It's the old cliche', "if you're going to talk the talk, you must walk the walk". Needless to say, he never walked the walk
