    Discipline?
    Coverage Skills?

    Shoulder bothering him. Someone posted this in another thread on Kubiak's presser.

    All I saw was that he was inactive for the game. Not sure what the reason was.

    Pollard was listed all week as questionable with a shoulder injury.

    Damn, guess I could have looked on the Mothership. Between the Holidays and work I wasn't up to date, didn't realize anything was ailing him.

    Sorry for taking up bandwidth.

    Thought maybe something went down................


    Thanks by the way!!!!!

    In the pregame show, Rick Smith said about Pollard "I was surprised he wasn't able to go today." Hm.

    We start two safeties that probably would not even make the two deep on most teams.

    Because Wade Phillips told McNair to stop playing him immediately.

    Bum informed Bob during their lunch last week.

    Hey, whatever Wade wants. He's our ticket to paradise.

    (Cheeseburger Paradise, that is)

    Pollard shut it down because he knew he was getting cut.

    Didn't want to risk injury in a meaningless game and endanger his next contract.
