You might want to look at the video again. Pollack wouldn't have been close to hitting the throat or jaw. And launching is a bit of stretch. Now if it was worth it for Pollack to deliver the head butt or not is hard to say. Maybe he felt that Pollack would have put a helmet on the ball. Or probably the likely result is that he just reacted in the .1th of second and what happened happened.

Have you seen that brace he's wearing on his arm? It actually seems more likely that's what his arm acually looks like, and they just took off the skin and we are looking at the bionic skelton.

looks like early money went to DEN and NE, moving the lines to -10 (from -8.5 and -9 respectively). SF has been a three point favorite since the open, and ATL has gone from -2 to -3. hard to go

So no fines for Tom Brady purposely trying to kick Ed Reed in his nads twice???? QB's are almost untouchable, but pretty boy Tom gets his panties in a bunch because he dosen't have a comfortable pocke

"Launching" isn't a bit of a stretch, it's an enormous stretch.  He was "breaking down" (I haven't played football in a long time, I don't remember if that's the right terminology ... but he was actually slowing down getting ready to react to a cut) to make a tackle.  Ridley brought the lions share of the force to that collision.

Side note:  He (Pollard) gets a lot of flack for having injured a few Patriots in the last few years with dirty play.  I've seen all the replays and I just don't see it.

I don't think Pollard gets flak for injuring Patriots by being dirty. The Brady hit wasn't dirty based on the way they called QB hits at the time, he never actually touched Welker, and the tackle on Gronk that injured his ankle was a fluke, not malicious. I think people just remarked at the irony of one guy injuring three (now four) key players.

Fair enough ... I guess I just read too much Bill Simmons ;)

P.S.  Holy Crap Jetfan, I had not seen that bad lip reading video yet ... f-ing hilarious!!!!  (The Key and Peele one is funny too but I had seen that) :)

Thanks for the laughs!

The Key and Peele one is a few months old but I still laugh every time. And it's a travesty that we do not yet have a member named "X-Wing @Aliciousness," "EEEE EEEEEEEEE," or "The Player Formerly Known as Mousecop."

And I've yet to listen to Monday's podcast with Cousin Sal because I'm still in mourning.

I agree. My only criticism of that video is that none of those players said they were from "the U."
