We all love the big hits that Pollard administers to the opposing team, as a in the box safety he is by far the best weve ever seen in Houston; but with all that said his deficiencies in coverage are becoming rather apparent, to both the fans and opposing offensive coordinators. Could one of the moves needed to help the secondary be to get Pollard off the field on passing downs? Let us not forgot that Pollard was cut by a bad KC team. A KC team whos defense has improved since Pollard left. Safety play has always been an issue with the Texans, and outside of Nolan, Im not convinced that it is any better than it was in the Matt Stevens days. If I was an opposing QB my first read would to be to see who Pollard is trying to cover or to see if Pollard is supposed to be providing help over the top. Either way I would have no fear throwing in his direction. I fear the re-match with Indy as I see Manning to Clark being a long and unforgiving theme for the Colts. As much as I think Pollard is hurting the teams pass D, I dont think there is anybody who could take the job from him. Barber still seems lost the second he steps on the field, and Im not sure I would trust him as the 8th defender in the box when needed. Same with Wilson, if he could stay healthy. On the flip-side, if the Texans could stop the run with just the front 7, might a pairing of Nolan and Wilson/Barber provide the coverage help we desperately need? There are teams whos running games I am certain that our front 7 could contain, and if that is the case are positives that Pollard brings out weighted by his negatives? Just some thoughts.
