Titans Bernard Pollard goes off on the NFL, calling it “Flag Football”

Tennessee Titans safety Bernard Pollard said a whole lot after getting fined this week by the NFL, especially after a hit that looked very clean.  Pollard uses his forearms and pushes Andre Johnson who is in BOUNDS out of bounds.

“They said I did everything right,” Pollard said of the NFL. “But he was a defenseless receiver, I guess. The bad part of it is, for us as players, for the fans, for the coaches, for the refs, there’s a lot of gray area. So they don’t know what to call and what not to call. There’s no call and now you come back and fine me $42,000 for … a play that was legal.”

The league is making it harder and harder to play defense, Pollard said.

“Flag football, that’s what they want. For us as players, it stinks. Our intent is to play football, to protect the field behind us. Nobody’s intention was to hurt (Johnson). Nobody wanted a concussion. We hope he’s OK,” he said.

I have to agree with Pollard, who has the Tennessee Titans defense as the best in the NFL.  I think that Pollard issued a very legal hit.  The NFL is getting soft, and it has to stop.
