Like almost every adult male in the country, I've recently become a very big Bernard Pollard fan:
Bernard Pollard should be on a rotating roster assignment, joining every team on the Patriots schedule from week to week
I know Belichek wants to blame Reliant Field; and, yes, Pollard didn't really directly cause Welker's injury. But he definitely had a hand in it. I did some research in an attempt to discover Pollard's extraordinary ability to wreak havoc on the Patriots, and I've discovered that he has a superhuman ability to cause a POWER OUTAGE in opposing players. Just ask Tom Brady and Wes Welker. If you don't believe me, see for yourself.
Pollard's superhuman abilities apparently date back to his Purdue days, and help to explain why he was selected to destroy the Patriots in the 2nd round of the 2006 NFL draft.
