    That kid just has a nose for the ball....even if he does make mistakes, maybe he can learn.

    The fact he wasn't starting from day one is just another hint as to why this team is 6 and 10.

    And, right on cue, he comes up with another turnover.

    Pollard gets benched, and Nolan get the first "safety-over-the-top-pick"
    of the season.

    He did start a few games this season. Defense still sucked.

    We never play our young guys early enough.

    Foster last year, Nolan, Casey when OD was out.

    Get the more talented players in there.

    Wish we could of seen Dickerson in this game.

    I thought Dickerson had a hamstring injury?

    Exactly. Nolan had been just as terrible as the rest of our defense. We need a whole new defensive staff next year with every spot on the D open for a player to win it.

    I have a feeling Pollard doesn't get a contract here.

    He was a liability this year. Whatever toughness he brought here, he has nullified due to bad coverage all season long.

    This team has to have a true Free Safety and an equally talented ball-hawking Strong Safety (not just a hard hitter back there) in order to have a chance at masking the problems at CB.

    Then again, we're talking TRENT EDWARDS here. So, whatever....:kubepalm:

    I never really thought about a Nolan/Wilson backfield. Looked much better than a Pollard/Wilson backfield.

    I figured since Pollard was a play maker, you have to keep him on the field.

    Now, I think we still need to find another safety.... to go along with Nolan.

    Pollard was benched? Wow, I'm so out of touch. No wonder I didn't see him there. What was the coach's reason for benching him?

    I don't think he was benched. Coulda sworn I read about an injury.

    Pollard is one dimensional. He has no place on this defense. With the refs going towards flagging hard hits more and more, he may not have a place in the league.

    Just getting rid of him will be a good start.
