Thanks for clarifying FTF!!!!!



I thought about changing to Cushioned, but that just sounds like a big ex-steroid junkie who went soft. Hey, wait a minute.....

I think there was a big difference in the way our guys played football last year, from what they did in 2009.

In 2009, we were aggressive more often than not. & the defense did well. When we played soft (prevent) even in 2009, we looked like crap. Giving up those 3rd & 18 yard plays. Not being able to stop MJD.

Every time.

2010, we played "prevent" & cautious way too much. Missing Cushing those first 4 games & starting a rookie corner were probably the main reasons.

But you saw them in those first 4 games. When they were "cautious" we got ran over. When they were aggressive, they shut our opponents down. Enough for us to get a lead, or giving us opportunity for the offense to get back in the game.

Still... we decided to play cautious all year long, more often than not.

Every one of our players (any defense if you ask me) will look like shit if they're playing prevent more often than not.

Pollard especially, & Cushing belong in an aggressive defense. Pollard can't cover, but he's got a nose for the ball & the propensity to make plays. If ever there was a player for the 46 defense (other than the original 46 & Roy Williams) B.P. is the one.

IF you've got an aggresive defense & don't have a place for Bernard Pollard, I'm a little concerned about what you're calling aggresive.

But, the way they were asking BP to play in 2010..... he was the problem more than the CB.

In Phillips defense the S have to be able cover. Of course Quin can do this. There are several SS in the draft that should be available in rds 3/4 that can cover. After the combine my favorite is Legefed.

Also signing a vet S like Whitner should be a priority. They could use some veteran leadership in the secondary. But not guys that are so old they cant play.

They have a keep BP page on Facebook, lol.

While I wouldn't want the guy starting again, I would like to have him back as a backup/sub, and bring him in on all out blitz plays. When he played up on the line in the Raves game, he impressed me.

I doubt he would go for that so I guess........

Love Bernard Pollard as a person, and I like what he brought to the team in terms of his motivation, his attitude and his (sporadic) playmaking. I'm saddened that he won't be playing here any longer, but the position can be improved and it needs to be. I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up playing. He can definitely be a starter in the right defense.

Fine with me so long as the Texans find a suitable replacement to play the position. Right now, I'm really high on Tyler Sash from Iowa. He hits hard, tackles well in space, and can make plays on the ball if needed.

Wholeheartedly agree with both bolded statements. As Mayock pointed out during the combine, he's a baller that you just have to find a place for. High motor guy, always around the ball, loves contact, will be a great special teamer while learning to play at the NFL level. I believe he's going to make who ever pulls the trigger on him very pleased they did so.

This is also a priority. Sure would have liked to see them persue O.J. Atogwe. I know we may never know for sure one way or the other if they did or not but one would think it would leak. Seems to be some substance to Gary's statement about moving GQ to FS. Guess we'll all see.

Pollard is still a starting safety in this league, but he wasn't going to fit the new system. His coverage skills are his weakness, but keep in mind that none of the DB's could cover last year.

I wish it could've worked out. We're gonna miss him.

I don't think it helped him that we haven't put a decent free safety on the field with him. Heck, we've never put a decent free safety on the field. You can mask a lot of coverage inadequacies when you have a great ball hawk at the other spot.
