    Due to him not being great in Coverage I think he will fair better paired with Ed Reed and company.

    I'm happy for the guy. With his mouth, he'll be a great fit on that team.

    As long is knocking the piss out of people he will fit in greatly with the Ravens.

    Great news.

    I hope he meets vickers in the hole and gets his head bashed in.

    I hope vonta meets Cushing in the hole and gets his face cracked.

    Hopefully Pollard is still over persuing and we playaction him silly and Andre goes off. I'm sure he's going to do something stupid and give us bulletin board material by opening his mouth the week of our game.

    Yeah, we should be able to exploit him

    In a run heavy division like the AFC North, Pollard makes sense. If used correctly, Bernard is an impact player.

    The Ravens are smart..........they will recognize his shortcomings vs strengths and will essentially use him like an LB......the way we should have used him.

    His best attribute is hitting hard and I expect him to be put in position to succeed.

    On a team where he can just roam around and headhunt, he can be successful.

    I'm not quite sure that Ed Reed is still the player we all think he is. A Pollard/Reed pairing will be exploitable this year.

    He did not play in six games last season and check out his stat line. He still almost had double digit interceptions even though he missed six games.

    He looked good for 10 games, can he play at the level at 33 and with a bad hip for all 16 games? He is going to lose a step at some point and 33 is about that time that starts to happen to DBs. Older players also get hurt more often and do not bounce back as quickly. So maybe I am projecting a bit here, but we all know that Pollard cannot cover to save his life. Time will tell.

    If Pollard has to cover a lot for any reason like Reed getting hurt then things won't work out. That question goes unanswered for now.

    If Pollard knocks Schaub out for the year during a blitz, this front office is going to catch hell for not retaining him...

    If someone fails to pick up the blitz and/or Schaub fails to hit a hot route, the players and staff should catch alot more hell than the FO.
