Pollard is the one who lunged at Tom Brady, hitting him below the knee and putting him out for the entire 2008 season.
When Wes Welker tore his ACL, Pollard was the nearest defensive player.
Last year, in the playoffs, he injured Rob Gronkowski, which eventually had more of an influence on the Super Bowl than many of the players who actually appeared in the game.
Last week, he hit Stevan Ridley square in the helmet, literally knocking him out of the game.
He was also fined $15,250 for an illegal hit on Welker in last week's game.
Perhaps that's why Pollard thinks that the added emphasis on player safety is going to ruin the NFL.
The NFL is still as popular as ever, despite the added measures that the league is taking to try to protect their employees from headhunters like Pollard.
The problem is, Pollard's wrong.
If the league doesn't exist in 30 years, it will be because of the lack of star power to injury.
There's a much better chance that the league would suffer from journeyman guys like Pollard injuring superstars, more so than the current emphasis on trying to keep players on the field.
Then again... we shouldn't be shocked that Pollard's opinion is ignorant. That pretty much sums up his whole career.
