Ravens hard-hitting Safety Bernard Pollard joined The Norris & Davis Show to discuss all things Ravens and the state of football.
Pollard was asked about his concerns with the NFL ruining football with fines and rules against hitting, ‘I don’t think football is going to be around in about 30 years. Guys are getting stronger, bigger, faster, smarter. You gotta guy that can be 400lbs and that can run a 4.6 and bench 500lbs and when he hits, he’s not going to hit you soft. This guy is going to run through you – and it hurts.’ But, competitive action and high-impact hits are part of the game, according to Pollard, ‘The game has gotten rougher and tougher every year from where it was when it first started. Its just a new-age of athlete.’
