    Bernard Pollard played with six cracked ribs | ProFootballTalk

    You may hate the guy for being involved in injuries to star Patriots players,but there is no denying the fact that he is one tough S.O.B. and a player like that is just what this defensive secondary lacks......a relentless Safety that plays through pain and also dishes it out.

    It's hard to play this game with one bad rib,its almost inhuman to play with six bad ones.

    Yep, but nobody here wants him, because he hurt wittle Tommy. I'd take him on this team in a heartbeat. He's not Rodney, but he tries to be, and thats what we need.

    There's no denying the fact that Pollard is a modern day 'lite' version of a young Rodney Harrison.

    I absolutely love his style of play ....it reminds me of the old days when playing the game pussylike due to contact rules never existed

    Sure, I'd take him, but he's going to have to practice in the simulator.

    Well, that settles it.

    Bernard Pollard is not human.

    He emerged from the primordial ooze eons ago and is now wrecking havoc upon all humanity.

    We are doomed.

    Hey, didn't we see a trailer for this during the Super Bowl? ;)

    I'd rather lose without him than win with players like him.

    I wouldn't. The guy would look really good in a Pats uniform destroying other receivers and backs like he destroys our's. I take it you weren't a fan of the Rodney Harrison era, then?

    You probably shouldn't say that...the lemmings are now going to attack the thought.

    And that's why you're a nice guy who finishes last.

    He is a pretty tough player, but I have trouble feeling sorry for him when he has hurt so many of our players.

    I haven't looked and it really doesn't matter, but was Pollard on the injury report for the SB?

    I wouldn't have a problem with Pollard on the Pats but why the need to throw our own guy under the bus?

    Someone probably should tell the guy that those ribs are there because there is some important stuff behind them.

    Seriously, if this is for real, its crazy. Bats%%t crazy and pretty much suicidal I would think. I'm amazed the doctors could okay this but then, it is the NFL.

    Sorry, no disrespect to Pollard and/or his toughness, but without actual medical confirmation, I'm doubting this one.

    Part of reason I asked was because there was some kerfluffle mid-season about Ed Reed saying he had a shoulder injury, but he was never on the injury report.

    Harbaugh seemed upset/baffled that this resulted in a fine. Apparently, that episode didn't have much of an effect on his thinking. All he would have to is put "B. Pollard (ribs) - Probable" on the injury report. That doesn't take much effort and wouldn't take anything away from Pollard being able to play with the injury.

    Come on people. 6 broken ribs? Really? It's hard enough playing with one broken rib. Bruised ribs maybe, but there is no way he played with 6 broken ribs.




    either that or that deer antler spray is some good stuff :singing::singing:

    I don't finish last. I just don't have to be a complete C**T and a thug to finish first.

    And given the choice, then yes, I'd rather not win than win ugly.

    Also, I do not believe for ONE second that this is true. I broke two ribs once. Played a gig - I'm a singer and guitar player - two days later. I was in absolute excruciating pain for the three-hour gig. The whole time. And there was no contact, just regulating breathing to be able to sing.

    I respect that you think that it's all about winning. At all cost.
    I don't. So no to the Ray Lewis, Bernard Pollard and liquored up idiot kickers.

    Really? That's the best you can do? Milk drinkers? Good for you.

    Also, grow up.
