In a recent article posted on Sports Radio Interviews. Baltimore Ravens hard-hitting strong safety Bernard Pollard talks about the NFL becoming a "two-hand touch" league, his quarterback, and the recent news on former Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson.

Pollard sees the Chad Johnson situation as a tough one and hopes Johnson stays in the league. He defends Ravens QB Joe Flacco, noting that he felt Joe did outplay Patriots QB Tom Brady in last year's AFC Championship, but realistically adds,

"...it’s not Joe versus Tom, it’s the Baltimore Ravens versus the New England Patriots..."

On the topic of the league trying to take away the violence from the game, Pollard had this warning for opposing receivers who come across the middle in front of him:

"For anybody coming across the middle, we’re going to make you pay. The league is trying to turn away from that, they want two-hand touch, but I’m going to put my pads on you."
