    Titans safety Bernard Pollard has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for what the league ruled was a late hit out of bounds in the team’s preseason opener against the Redskins.

    Pollard was penalized 15 yards for the hit, on Redskins receiver Aldrick Robinson. After the game, Pollard made no apologies, saying the Titans intend to play with an edge on defense this season.

    After watching a replay of the hit this week, Pollard said he thought it was clean. I asked him if he thoughgtt he’d be fined, and he said no.

    “I don’t think so,’’ he said. “You have to look at for me, as a defender, I am already coming in and already going in to make the hit, so I don’t see his other foot go out. He was inbounds and his other foot finally went out.”

    Pollard said he won’t change the attacking style he’s been known for in the NFL.

    “For me as a defender, I am going to make the hit. I am going to hit you,’’ he said. “There have been times I have been late and there have been times when I’ve had solid hits but for me, I can’t worry about whether the league is going to fine me or not.

    “Because I am going to play football and try and help this team win and I am going to bring a physical presence every time out.”

    I'm just hoping our defense returns to being an Enforcer in this league. That's what always made me love the Titans over the years was our hard hitting defense and physical style.

    Can't wait to be at every home game cheering on the big hits. I want it to be like a Colosseum out there when we're on defense.

    While they're at it. Keep the beer flowing longer too. Some of us have DD's and we need our beer with our hits. ::therevolution

    10g's for that? What about the 10 times some douche has slammed into CJ from behind after he has scored a TD and sent him flying head first into the ground?

    I guess that is acceptable. **** you goodell, faggotbitch

    Of course, cu begs for that by starting to look around and slow down 30 yards from the end line.

    Pollard if I had the money, I'd start a chip-in to get you to keep playing like that. You're exactly what this defense needs, keep it up!
