Ravens Looking Into Colts' Taunting, Pollard Blaming Colts Junior Staff Member for starting issue that caused his taunting penalty

36 posts in this topic

 Safety Bernard Pollardicon-article-link.gif went to the Indianapolis sideline after a member of the Colts staff said something to him following an incompletion.

 

However, it was Pollard that was penalized 15 yards for taunting, and was pulled from the game by Head Coach John Harbaugh.

 

“That’s something that we are looking into. Apparently, there was something that was said,” Harbaugh said.

 

“Obviously, you don’t go back into their bench, Bernard said that already. He knows that. You don’t respond. But there were some things, apparently, that were said that were out of line.”

If I were the ravens I would be focusing 0% of my time or man power on this. You've got bigger fish to fry.

i think they should be focusing less on this topic and focusing more on denver. Pollard should just keep his mouth shut stop crying and move on.

After reading thru the comments on that article, all I can say is those readers are a bunch of cry babies.  I agree, they need to move on to the next game, where I'm sure Denver is waiting anxiously to beat them.

They will have plenty of time to investigate after they get trounced by the broncos this weekend

I know Ballard is a punk, but I didn't know he was a crybaby too.

I think you mean Pollard haha

 

This is lame.  Pollard should act like a professional.  If a fan says something to taunt him, is he going go run into the stands and get in the fan's face?  He knows the rules and shouldn't have done what he did.  And to hear Pollard accuse others of dirty play/taunting is comical to me

Here's a question; Why didn't Lewis get flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct or delay of game for his Candy-... dance at the end of the game?

haha no worries.  During the offseason, I kept trying to make posts about Manusky, our defensive coordinator, but I kept typing Mularkey, the Jags' head coach.

I wonder if what the coach had to say to him had anything to do with Pollard trying to take Reggie Wayne's head off the play before?  Is Harbaugh going to look into that too?  If he doesn't or heck even if he does I am sure the league will.  Honestly if you are in a playoff game and you are worried about what some coach of the other team is saying to you on the sidelines you need reexamine your ability to tune out distractions.

Pollard got called for unsportsmanlike conduct, the reason for the "investigation" is an attempt to avoid a fine.

Lol, that's funny because whenever I think of the Jags coach I always think:

 

ma·lar·key  
/məˈlärkē/
Noun

Meaningless talk; nonsense.

That would be akin to throwing a flag for too many men on the field after the ball is kneeled down and both sides walk onto the field at the end of the game.

 

Do they throw unsportmanlike conduct flags for players running onto the field celebrating after the ball is kneeled down?

That's not actually a penalty unless the ball is snapped with those people on the field.

 

I might give you too many men in the huddle, though.

lmao yeah, I've heard that too. When we played them in Jacksonville and we got a td by just barely crossing the plane, Mularkey went nuts and all the announcers were like "well, he thinks that's a bunch of malarkey"

We should talk as much smack as possible to Bernard Pollard next time we play the Ravens, he just told the world his weakness, his own emotions.

I get your loyalty. And I get that it was in Baltimore.But IMO it was still a "Look at me! Look at me!" moment

AND it was premeditated. So, it really wasn't akin to anything you've mentioned

Beautifully stated jvan1973.  :thmup: Why are the Ravens complaining about a trivial matter in a game that they won? Normally, a team moans, groans, & argues over a non penalty circumstance when they lose. Grow up Mr.  Pollard. Do you want a cookie & a bedtime story too?  :facepalm:  What exactly are you investigating Coach John Harbaugh? Get over it...

I wasn't exactly overjoyed at Ray Lewis's squirrel dance at the end of the game during the final play either Mr. Pollard, but I'm not gonna be a cry baby & call that taunting either. Let me know when you develop some perspective & maturity please. Thank you.

Meh - who cares.

 

"Premeditated" doesn't show up in the NFL rule book when it comes to unsportsmanlike conduct or too many men on the field or too many men in the huddle.

Because two wrongs make a right?  

 

I do agree I thought I seen someone on our sidelines saying something to him prior to him going toward the sidelines, but that doesn't make him right!

 

Re: dances - I think a lot, if not all of the celebratory dances after a single play should be considered tauntingand should be penalized.

    • Negative, no. Critical, yes. I never said Pagano was a bad coach. But, Pagano has had 5 years to develop better strategies (granted in concert with the other coaches and players Grigson and the FO provided). I suppose some would try to put all the failures on Grigson, but in my experience with teambuilding, that (the failure of one person) is almost never the case. In fact, I would speculate that, for whatever reason, the lack of a coherent strategic vision for the team resulted in players "trying too hard", getting hurt, and ultimately coming up short of their potential. Part of that under-performance is the lack of development of the mental aspects of the game. Slow starts, mis-matched playcalling, poor clock management are indicators of strategic mental lapses.
    • I think you hit the nail right on the head with your New York and Los Vegas comment. There are a few other artist who fall into that category also. I'm not going to venture to make a list of those artist. Music is so compelling to each individual and effects each one of us differently. Like you said Frank was a little ahead of my time but I can't judge him in the fact if he was good or bad. His career started with the big band era and then ventured into acting where he did have success. Like him or not he was huge in his style.
    • I think we could see Spence at M and Jackson at W to start the season. If someone doesn't step up at M. We could easily run that pair out week 1. We could do a lot worse.   The biggest change we need to make at ILB is speed. That pair gives us that. Rhodes is a guy who could surprise. This will be a position group I'll be keeping a close eye on 
    • Pagano has only been a head coach for 5 years. No matter what anyone's opinion of him is he has been a success. Some come up with all kind of reasons why he has never had a losing season but the fact is he hasn't. Line up any head coach in the league and what he has done is unmatched. I have no clue as how his career is going to work out but to treat and act like he hasn't been a good coach is not correct. You can hand pick every negative call or things he has done over the past and then hold that over his head and point a finger to say he is a bad coach but that is too pre mature to call at this point. It's easy to come into this forum and make old and stale jokes that we have all heard so many times that it's not funny anymore. Chuck's attitude with his players is always upbeat and positive. That is what we see. What he does and says in house we really don't know. All I do know is his players and anyone who deals with him don't have negative things to say about him. That only happens in this forum No matter what anyone's opinion of him is the fact is he is the head coach of the Colts. Will that change? Who really knows at this point.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
