Who's younger..... him or Landry?

But I think Pollard will be more "healthier" than Landry

 

That kind of information is classified and can only be found in obscure places like NFL.com, Google, Wikipedia, etc. ;)

 

 

And I was thinking that Pollard was the healthier of the 2 as well, but looking at their games played in their career:

 

Landry missed 8 games in 2011, 7 games in 2010, 1 game in 2009 and otherwise has played all 16 games in 2012, 2008 and 2007

Pollard played in all 16 games in '06, '07 and '08, missed 3 games in '09, 1 game in '10, played all games in '11 and missed 3 games in '12.

 

Now that is just a summary of games played so doesn't take into account how often they may have still played but with nagging injuries or anything like that.  I'd be happy with either but I think the familiarity with Pagano's defense would put Pollard over the top for me.  :)

Stats last year: Pollard:98 tackles, 2 sacks, 0 FF, 2int

 

                         Landry: 100 tackles, o sck, 4 FF, 2int

  thats pretty much even. 4 forced fumbles is a big number though. Landry is HUGE for a SS. 220lbs. he ran a 4.35 40 in his combine.

6 Turnovers compared to just 2. The fumbles may not have been recovered by the team, but they're still fumbles. And it puts fear in the other team

I'd take Landry

I can't stand Pollard.  He is a loud-mouth.  I remember in an Indy/Houston game (back when he played for Houston), Reggie Wayne made a catch by their sideline and the cameras picked up the sound and all you could hear was Pollard swearing like there was no tomorrow.  I'd rather take Landry

Yes, and he was under 210 when he ran that.   Landry has blown up putting on roughly 10-15 pounds of weight room muscle.

 

Whether any of it is....  ummm....   ahhhh.....   ehhhhhh....    enhanced, I don't know....

 

I'd prefer Pollard.

And you think Landry doesn't swear on the football field. LOL  Landry and Pollard are almost the same type of player but Pollard has played more snaps due to him being healthier thru out the seasons played between the both.

    • I think we see plenty of 3 Safety's on the field at the same time and both Cross and Rodney Mc have very nice seasons. I worry a bit about the 4th S spot (Thomas could fill it as a S/CB), dont trust Watts to play D just ST. Dabo so raw likely a year away. Weatherford may be in play in emergencies though more a LB fit at this level.
    • With Willis showing in his first preseason game I am sure he might be more depressed now.      
    • Think this shows that French is playing so well at center he has backup locked down so Fries C/G option is now just guard and ahead of Spriggs. At least that's the take I'm getting.
    • I did before and enjoyed it.  I commented on it.  I talked about Wentz mechanics mostly, and that they just stunk aside from when he squared up properly to throw down the middle of the field.   What I noticed on that first play was that Doyle did not release early enough.  Seemed to be free but kept his hands on the defender and stayed covered while Wentz was pumping.  Yes, Wentz fades back for no apparent reason, but ended up throwing the ball right where Doyle should have been if he released when he should of.  And, number 41 for Jax made a good play by closing on the passing lane pretty quickly taking any sort of play away if Wentz didn't throw the ball when he did.   I thought the ball to Pittman down the middle was a bad throw.  I thought the back side play to TY wasn't bad. And JT made a good observation about Dulin slowing down mid route on that deep ball.      Wentz got criticized for moving too early and not staying put in the pocket.  Well, he's a "mobile" QB and not one of those pocket statues.  He extends plays, and those guys break from the pocket passing position pretty early.  I mean, if you want a pocket passer that stays put and releases right before the defender hits him, then go get Brady, PM, or Rivers....or Ryan,....or Kurt Warner.  Wentz ain't that guy, and the NFL is moving away from that guy.   I said early in the season that Wentz seemed to play like he thought he was more athletic than he actually is.  Maybe he should try to be a pocket passer that squares up every play and stands tall until the last split second.   I thought that a lot of points were valid, especially about just plain accuracy.  And I don't think Wentz played well.  A QB can't come out of a game with a 6 PFF score without terrible play being a huge part of that score.
