Bernard Pollard rips replacement refs: ‘These guys are star struck’

Ravens safety Bernard Pollard had plenty to say about the replacement officials on Thursday morning, and very little of it was kind.

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. And my issue is, you know, we have our commissioner who’s jumping on board to hammer every other issue now in the NFL, he’s jumping on board to get meetings with players when things are...

Ravens defense hardly intimidating so far

The fear factor seems to have vanished from the Baltimore Ravens' defense. They rank 27th in the NFL in total defense after finishing third last season.

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…
