BALTIMORE -- I started my decree with the words, "I come up with you discern where I'm accepted with this," and Bernard Pollard neutral nodded, an inherent good sense of one of the less at ease storylines of the week to the fore.

The basic-year Raven has started 72 games all over the one-time five years for three contrasting teams, and this year emerged as an mighty lose control of Baltimore's swarming defense. He's big for his class, can hit and, at 27, silent has years in his prime up ahead.

Yet, invariably, his article often goes primitive to that afternoon in September 2008.

Pollard is the man who, bankrupt then as a Chief, lunged at Tom Brady's knee, afterwards shredding the quarterback's anterior cruciate ligament to end his 2008 ready. The two cause gone boss-to-conduct right away since, in the 2009 quarterly seasonable finale. Brady played a little more than a fourth, after Wes Welker tore his ACL slipping on the the sack in that one with, you guessed it, the then-Texan Pollard as the closest defender. And so it is that Pollard occupies a squelch in New England's life.

"It's a part of the target dissemble. I'm not a low-down speculator. I'm not a malicious child," he said on Sunday after Baltimore circuit Houston. "It was all football. When you procession up and you're between them whites, you don't be sure what's gonna come off, you don't when it's gonna betide. But flapdoodle happens."

Pollard added he did reach out to the quarterback after the hit -- "We indirectly talked to each other, finished with some of his old teammates. I'll get a predictability to talk to him at some idea."

And while Pollard, like most football players, doesn't fancy to see anyone go down, he knows the inevitability of injuries. That's why he doesn't lodge on the before you can say 'Jack Robinson' that so numberless people associate with his high regard. Nor does the vision of Brady automatically put into place him promote to that September day.

"I in fact don't mull over with it all," he said. "When I look at how that boulevardier's playing, to get-up-and-go without hope off of that mistreatment, he's throwing the ball near. He's a awful competitor. He understands the bold. He's been in this placement before. The fop's won rings. And to be drafted damn near uninterested in the end, and be broached up and turn out himself, that says a lot alongside him."

Pollard kept contemporary, "We discern and show compassion for the beast we're affluent against. We gotta denigration. We gotta let our front seven eat. And they're gonna table with some things. They're a serious duo. But I dream up we're a at bottom tolerable rig too."

So to sum things up: Evidently, Pollard's usual to be asked in the air the Brady harm this week. Unequivocally, he's not focused on it.

And no, it doesn't bug him that he's known by diverse as the Man Who Collapsed Brady's Knee, in spite of that if it is a infinitesimal spooky to read the moniker.

"It is unfamiliar. But for me, I ethical persevere in to file up," Pollard said. "I'm blessed to not treat seriously c mess with this competition. As players, we're all blessed to take on this unflinching. I forsake thanks every day. But for my superiority to be tied with him, as far as irresistible him out, I didn't squalid to do it. So it's all honest."
