Tom Brady is known for getting the better end of calls and actually was the reason low hits on the QB became such a big deal. Bernard Pollard took out his knee when he was a member of the Chiefs (not intentional) and refs have been throwing more and more flags ever since.
In yesterday’s game, Brady ‘slid’ to avoid contact, but sure looked like he was throwing a kick at Ed Reed as seen above. Pollard didn’t take to kindly to the ‘kick’.
“You’ve got to keep them legs down,” said Pollard. “You’ve go to keep the legs down. We all know and understand what’s going on there. And as a quarterback, when you go to slide, we’re taught . . . we can’t do anything. When you come sliding, and your leg is up in the air trying to kick somebody, that’s bull crap.”
When speaking in reference to the hit on Ridley seen below, this is what he had to say on that and I agree 100%
“It’s just a tackle. It’s football,” Pollard said, ”He broke a hole and we filled. That’s fine. That’s football. I hope he’s okay. We’re competitive in the moment. But when everything calms down you want that guy to be okay.”
