Please please please, please lock Bernard Pollard in a room until he's too old to play football anymore.
I know I know, it's that woulda-shoulda-coulda stuff. What could, would, should have been if Bernard Pollard didn't make that tackle on Gronk. A completely legit tackle mind you that I don't think was dirty at all, but nonetheless resulted in our most explosive player getting that high ankle sprain.
It's a familar dream. What would, could, or should have been if Bernard Pollard didn't bring down Wes Welker in the 2009/2010 season in the game before the Pats would host the Ravens. Welker's injury was not the result of a dirty play, just Pollard's kryptonic-presence.
What would, could, or should have been if Bernard Pollard didn't sack Brady in the first game of the 2008 season. It wasn't a dirty hit, but you get the idea.
Do you realize that it's probably not safe for him to come to New England at all, through no fault of his own? Yup. He's the most-despised player who shouldn't even be despised, but we have no choice but to despite him. I wouldn't want him on the team given all the injuries he would surely cause in practice. Hell, even the locker rooms. Probably the weight rooms, too. The man can't help himself, and if you guys let him play is again, he just might never be able to live with himself again.(ok, he would probably be worshipped by some, but come on!)
So please.. lock him in a room and throw the key away before he hurts Aaron Hernandez. Thanks guys, see you in the regular season rematch!
