Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard is known to many as “The Patriot Killer.” When he was with the Kansas City Chiefs, Pollard was the guy who hit Brady’s knee and tore his ACL in 2008. In 2010, when he was with the Houston Texans, Pollard was in the general area of where Wes Welker ripped up his knee at the end of the season. Last year, he made the tackle on Rob Gronkowski that injured his ankle and made him close to a non-factor in the Super Bowl. On Sunday, Pollard took out yet another Patriot with his helmet-to-helmet hit on running back Stevan Ridley. The hit was perfectly legal since Ridley was a ball carrier and not a receiver, but the whole “Patriot Killer” thing is starting to get kind of eery. What’s even more eery is that a writer named Steve Roney from Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic called the injury. Calling it right now: Pollard takes out Stevan Ridley. RB is the only position he hasn’t decimated yet. Latest CSN: bit.ly/WcmLgF — Steve Roney (@Steve_Roney) January 18, 2013 Coincidence or not, that is some pretty crazy stuff. Pollard has now taken out arguably the best Patriots player at every skill position on offense. He certainly took out their best quarterback in 2008 and tight end in 2012, and Welker and Ridley were probably the best at their position at the time of their injuries. Whether you believe in curses and jinxes or not, I’m sure there are very few New England fans out there who get excited about the Patriots taking on a team that Pollard is on.
