I would be happy with either. But there is a good chance we get neither. If that happens suicide watch will be on high alert. Listen to the song "jumper" if things get to tough for you guys

Already on my ledge!! Lol. No but it would be nice to get one of them. Either would be a huge upgrade.

He puts patriots to sleep.. Sign him up

I apologize for yesterday really. I was drinking and all excited about free agency and it felt like we blew it and you were getting on my nerves so i lashed out at you inappropriately, you don't have to forgive me i made myself look like a real * but regardless i am sorry. and BTW after researching and looking into our pickups yesterday they're really starting to warm up to me, i dont feel like we blew it all that much anymore.

I would take him over Landry, because Landry is a mess with injuries. Even when healthy, you can't say he's much better than Pollard.

 

Pollard is a hard hitting, physical safety that a team like the Colts need.

 

I would be happy to see him in a Colts uniform.

I like Pollard's play, but there is something about him... This is how many teams he's played for in how long? It's not like his play hasn't been good enough to warrant a long-term deal...

 

So why, then, has he not gotten one, and why are the Ravens, already losing one great safety, and a healthy amout of good players on defense, letting him go?

Was just browsing PFT when I saw this:

 

A string of surprising moves in Baltimore extended on Wednesday to a player who supposedly was safe.

 

Safety Bernard Pollard is out, and everyone is wondering why.

 

As one league source said in response to the news, “Three teams in how many years. Soon four.  What does that tell you?”

Another source says that Pollard has a reputation for being outspoken, for complaining, and for drawing too much attention to himself.  He wears on a team, with his talent keeping him around for a second year or third year.

 

More specifically, we’re now getting the clear impression that last year’s incident that, as reported by Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports, was “practically a mutiny,” has contributed to the departure of Pollard — and could result in more players being purged.

And he’s where it gets really interesting.  (Or at least less uninteresting.)  Silver specifically mentioned Pollard and Ed Reed as instigators of the mutiny.

 

Coincidentally, we’re now getting indications that the Ravens don’t want Reed back.

 

So while coach John Harbaugh handled a difficult situation very well at the time (as evidenced by the team’s Super Bowl trophy), it looks like Harbaugh may have decided that, at the appropriate time, he’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Stats comparison: Pollard 585 tackles in 105 games, along with 9 sacks, 13 forced fumbles, 8 fumble recoveries, 9 interceptions, 40 passes defended and 10 stuffs

 

Landry - 80 games, 482 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 10 FF, 4 FR, 6 INTs, 39 PDs and 16 STFs.

 

Fairly equal but I'd give Pollard the edge. Factor in that in his rookie year he played in 16 games but had zero starts (he played special teams), his stats look even better in his 89 starts (11 less tackles, sacks the same, one less FF, one less FR, INTs the same, one less PDs, same number of stuffs). Landry's stats are all from starts.

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.   :)

    • This take is wild to me.   Imagine Tua being 'cleared' by the medical staff and then insisting that he doesn't feel right and refusing to go back in. Imagine the way that everyone - fans, media, teammates - would react to that. We've already got * fans of this team insisting that Leonard should be playing because he was able to stand on the sideline and cheer the team on against the Chiefs - people questioning his commitment.   Almost every player is likely to *want* to go back in because they're competitive and relentless by their very nature. It's tough to get to the NFL if you're not a little crazy like that. But even more importantly, every player is *forced* to want to go back in because their entire livelihood depends on it. Tua hasn't had a great start to his career. He's just getting hot and you expect him to say, 'Nah coach, stick Teddy out there. I'm gonna sit this one out. He can win the game as well as I can so it's all good.' You need a little head wobble of your own if you think that constitutes lying or if you think any player is going to say something like that.   It's the players that put their lives on the line when they take the field. They make a fantastic living doing it, and they do it by choice, but there are a huge number of people who also make a great living in the NFL without ever having to place themselves in equally dangerous situations. It's the responsibility of those people - owners, doctors, NFL staff, etc. - to safeguard the players on whom the league relies because they're not always in a position to safeguard themselves.
    • I want him to play but I absolutely want the medical staff to err on the side of caution. A random win in Week 4 isn't worth trading Leonard's long-term health for. You can't be messing around and rolling the dice when it comes to the back/spine.      It's the job of the NFL and its organisations to try to keep the players safe though, not place them in harm's way intentionally. At least, it should be.    That's like saying people shouldn't have to wear seatbelts when they drive because there's a chance that they'll crash and die anyway. I think that's silly.   He didn't pass the rules that were in place, which is a huge part of the problem. Gross Motor Instability is supposed to be an immediate removal from the game and he's placed into concussion protocol. Gross Motor Instability is exactly what Tua displayed but he returned to the game anyway. The only way this could happen is if his instability was proven to be orthopaedic rather than neurological, and there's simply no way that that was the case. 
    • Yeah, the last time Buckner was out vs. Henry - that went really well.  It was a demoralizing 2000s style rush defense performance.
    • taylor is mot running as well since glow is gone
    • I am betting Leonard plays.  The fact he hasn’t been ruled out means he’s very close.  Buckner I think the signs are pointing to him not playing and that’s concerning.  The one game he missed vs the Titans they ran wild.
