Found September 20, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
Ravens safety Bernard Pollard had plenty to say about the replacement officials on Thursday morning, and very little of it was kind. During an interview with the “Toucher and Rich Show” on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston, Pollard ranted about how the officials are in way over their heads and blasted Roger Goodell for compromising the integrity of the game. “These guys need to be out,” Pollard said. “I respect them as men — they were put in a position they can’t handle. But who is going to turn down an NFL officiating gig when you probably get paid more than you got paid in the lingerie league or whatever. Who is going to turn that down? But when it’s all said and done, the commissioner needs to do something about it. “This is way out of their league. It’s too fast, guys are too crafty, and they cannot control the game. My issue is we have a commissioner that is jumping on board to hammer every other issue down in the NFL. He is jumping on board to get meetings with players when things...

Ravens’ Bernard Pollard Rips Replacement Reps On Boston Sports Talk

Sports Hub: Pollard: “As far as with the refs, like I’ve said before, this is way out of their league. They don’t, it’s just too fast, guys are too crafty, they cannot control the game.

Baltimore Ravens' Safety Bernard Pollard: Patriot-killer?

At the time, Pollard played...

Bernard Pollard Feels Replacement Officials Are 'Starstruck' by Joe Flacco, Real Officials Need to 'Get Back Quick'

The NFL's replacement officials are no good for football, no one is debating that -- well, no one but Cortland Finnegan. But like many players and fans of the game, Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard has had enough.

Joe Flacco is the Most Overrated QB in the NFL

So, I meant to write this post last week after he won AFC Offensive Player of the Week, but ended up getting sidetracked by something else and by the time I went to write it, it didn't seem topical anymore. But, with the Ravens coming up and everyone and their brother fighting over the chance to blow Joe Flacco (SFW), I think the time has come to proclaim this for all to hear...

Ravens defense hardly intimidating so far

The last we saw of the Ravens… I really don’t want...

The last we saw of the Ravens… I really don’t want to rub the AFCCG in too much this week. Let’s face it, we should’ve at least seen overtime, much less lost had Sterling Moore not gotten a hand in on Lee Evans. As I said at the time, the only person on the Ravens that deserved to lose like that was Bernard Pollard. Still, I love this GIF…

Celek's big leap highlights breakout for Eagles TE

Brent Celek had already turned a short pass into a long gain when he decided to imitate an Olympic-style hurdler and avoid the hard-hitting Ed Reed. Celek, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound tight end, jumped completely over Reed, the Ravens' star safety, and racked up a few more yards to complete a 24-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter of Philadelphia's 24-23 comeback win against...
