Bernard Pollard fined big (he wasn't alone)

Posted by Andy Benoit

The $25,000 that Andrew Johnson and Cortland Finnegan paid from last week’s fight were not the biggest fines to come out of the Texans-Titans game. According to the Associated Press, the NFL docked Texans safety Bernard Pollard $40,000 for unnecessary roughness against Titans wideout Justin Gage. The league ruled that Pollard struck a defenseless Gage in the head.

Pollard’s fine was steeper because he was a repeat offender (he was fined $5,000 earlier in the season for a violation against his former Chiefs team). On an unrelated note (or perhaps a related note, who knows?) Pollard had a terrific game against the Eagles Thursday night. He was a maniac as an extra run defender in the box, and he made a few nice plays between the numbers in pass coverage (an area he has struggled for most of this season).

Other players fined for hits this week…

Panthers safety Sherrod Martin 40K, Cardinals offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges 20K and Cardinals linebacker Clark Haggans 10K. Packers linebacker Matt Wilhelm also paid $5,000 for a major facemask.

Hot Routes 11.18.10 bye bye to bye weeks

Hot Routes

Posted by Andy Benoit


All 32 teams will be in action each week from here on out, which just means more potential Hot Routes to sift through.


There is a great deal of anticipation for the Andre Johnson-Darrelle Revis matchup this Sunday.

FINALLY! A movement in Denver for the Broncos to make their alternate third orange jerseys their official home jersey. The Falcons and Titans have both done this in recent years (Falcons’ red jerseys used to be an alternate to their black; Titans sky blue jerseys used to be an alternate to navy blue).


A record number of players have landed on IR so far this season.


The season-ending injury to Cardinals right tackle Brandon Keith has given veteran Jeremy Bridges a chance to start again.


Ron Artest hopes to try out for the NFL after his basketball career is over. Just what we need: another basketball player turned tight end (we’ll assume he’d play tight end) whom announcers can remind us goes after red zone catches by boxing out the same way as if he’s going after a rebound.


T.O. spoke with Buffalo reporters Wednesday and greeted them with an interesting cheer.


Brian Urlacher is four tackles away from passing Mike Singletary as the Bearsall-time leading tackler.


Talk about a fair yet unfair headline. From the Detroit Free Press: “Jason Hanson is the losingest NFL player ever”. That’s Hanson’s reward for longevity.


At a University of Maryland function Wednesday night, Dan Snyder called the loss to the Eagles “embarrassing”.


Jeff Fisher regrets losing LeGarrette Blount.


Rex Ryan wants more from his defense.


Pretty much every NFL-related story from Giants beat writers this week has been tied to Michael Vick.


Todd Haley won’t even discuss his own injuries with the media.
