Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard has been dubbed the "Patriot Killer" by some of his teammates, and a good deal of people in the media. Pollard seems to take someone down on the Patriots every year, and last night was no different. He knocked out Patriots running back Stevan Ridley who fumbled the ball on the hit. Pollard could have easily been called for a helmet to helmet on the play, but that didn't stop him from talking bad about Tom Brady's baseball slide seen above.
"You've got to keep them legs down," said Pollard. "You've go to keep the legs down. We all know and understand what's going on there. And as a quarterback, when you go to slide, we're taught . . . we can't do anything. When you come sliding, and your leg is up in the air trying to kick somebody, that's bull crap."
Brady kicked Ed Reed on the play, and we have yet to hear anything from Reed about what he thinks. From what I've seen in the past I would call Brady a pretty fair player. I haven't seen him do many bad things in his day. Watching the video though, there's just no way I can say he didn't do this on purpose. Just no way he didn't see him coming and throw up his leg. Gotta side with Pollard on this one.
