    Thanks for the read Wolf

    I know that many will probably start throwing tomatoes at me, but even with his known warts, I would have still been curious to see how Pollard would do in this new system with its new coaches.

    I believe that Sharpton and other players in his position would find a different word than "disruptive" to describe their situation.

    Ditto, I'm going to miss Pollard, but hey, he might end up in Indy :)

    Doesn't Wade's system require corners to cover a lot?

    Also, who made Pollard a scapegoat? The coaches made him be in a spot where he had to cover and he can't.

    No one said he can't hit hard or isn't a run stopper?

    Schaub would pick him apart, but if he got the big hit that we know he can deliver, you might be right.

    He's commenting on Pollard's hit on Brady I think.

    YUP!! While I love Pollards intensity and ability to "knock the piss outta people", he really was terrible in coverage!

    He's saying they each have different skillsets - that if you put those other guy's in a different situation / scheme / responsibility they wont perform at the same level and .... I agree with him at least to some extent.

    His ability to hit and and Schaub's inability to take the big hit.

    Schaub hasn't been hit too hard the last few years but I get the feeling Pollard would do whatever it takes to level Schaub just to send a message to this organization.

    He has to get a job first before he can do that. Not that I think he'll sit out the season, but it's very possible he's a backup next year. It sucks that we don't have a spot on our crappy defense for him but I don't think it's going to set us back much worse than what our secondary was already last year.
