Bernard Pollard has played his last game as a Texan

One has to ask themself, what the heck has happened to Bernard Pollard? He was the defensive highlight of our 2009 season and voted team captain going into 2010. Either that or simply look at his brief history with Kansas City and how they ran him out of town. He stole our collective heart last year but appears to have worn out his welcome in Houston. When Gary Kubiak was asked about Pollard's future in Houston after the Jacksonville game he was very non-committal to say the least. Actually Kubiak sounded like he was ready to overhaul the entire defense minus a few obvious players which will likely happen this offseason. Look for at least 6 new starters on that side of the ball to kick off 2011 with at least 4 of those being seasoned veterans that know how to win.

We will probably never know why Pollard decided not to receive "treatment" on his shoulder that we really didn't even know was an issue. He instead decided that the game wasn't important to him sat it out. I'm curious if he was even on the sideline during the game. Is this the reason why Kubiak sounded like he wouldn't be back or is he simply caught up in a numbers game, being an Unrestricted Free Agent under the current labor agreement.

Either way, thanks for the memories Bernard. You will go down as the best Strong Safety this team has ever had during it's short history. Hopefully we can find a Strong Safety that can lay the wood and cover a Tight End every once in a while.
